  1. Hello there Drewey, so nice to your cheerful self :) You're looking quite lovely with your red collar.

    She looks smaller than usual... must be the camera angle.

  2. Aww Laurie she lovely!

    How old is she?

    Scritches and Hugs to her!

  3. S- it's just the angle, she was up on the bathroom sink, and I shot it from beneath her.

    Martin, She's 18-ish. We're not sure exactly. She's been with us for 16 years, and was between 1 and 2 when she moved in.

  4. Charlene Butterbean is a doll, but I have to say The Empress Dowager Drewey is my favorite of your girls.

  6. Hi there, Drewey, it's good to see you! That's a lovely spray of 'skers that you're sporting. The red collar highlights your very white white parts nicely.

  7. I was wondering if she was losing weight. Maybe she needs to be nipping at the kitten food. ;)

    Beautiful old lady!

  8. Since you've shared baby photos of Charlene, do you have any photos of way back when you adopted Drewey?

    That last photo looks like she has human thoughts.

  9. Oh Drewey, I would love to just gently cuddle and hug you. You are truly a Grand Dame!

  10. My Petunia (tortoiseshell tabby) is 18ish, too. I love the old girls. Petunia is very hard-of-hearing, and her meow is HUGE as a result. Makes me love her even more.

    All respect and kindness should be extended to our wise elders of all species.

  11. Being a bit of an old lady myself, I must say that some of us DO get somewhat scrawny looking as we age..... and Drewey's whiskers are much more becoming than mine!

  12. I just love her. She has the cutest face. I'm a sucker for a little pink nose anyway, but she is so cute!!! Would you mind sharing some earlier kitten-ish photos with us?

  13. oh drewey, what a beautiful girl you are. i love when your mama posts your pics. *gentle skritches*

  14. As much as I too would like to see kitten photos of Drewey, it would undermine my idea that she was born at the age of 16 and already cranky. She always looks like she is thinking "get off my lawn!".

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh gosh Drewey!!!! I just adore your grumpy pursing little face!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I absolutely love Drewey and think she's extemely beautiful. I didn't realize she had the little titch of a gray beard on her chinny-chin-chin but now that I see it up close, I want to kiss it! Older kitties do tend to get a bit scruffy but it just makes them even more loveable. Drewey is my cranky little hero.

  17. Seriously,, it's all in the angle.. this one was shot the same day, but from above.

  18. True beauty comes with age. Drewey's got it in spades.

    Cynthia, you're exactly right. And Anne ~ Good one!

    Drewy, such a serious look. Love your pink nose. Your fur looks a bit floofy in the picture but I bet it is soft. She does look a bit on the thin size but of course at 18 one must watch one's figure.

  20. There's my favorite cranky old lady

  21. Drewey is quite a handsome lady, I must say.

  22. Laurie...
    Note to self - to appear thinner, pose on bathroom counter. Hmm, may not work in humans :)

  23. Anne Boleyn -- you made me laugh out loud with that one about human whiskers! Note to all friends: Please, please, please discreetly point any on my chin out to me?

    G -- or she could be saying, "You kids get out of my dooryard before I call your mothers!!"

  24. Drewey looks like she's ready to eat the pawpawrazzi's faces off. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Such a cutie! I'm sending her a gentle hug and kiss.
    She makes me miss (even more than usual) my "little old lady" cat, who reached the early or mid twenties. We never knew her exact age, she came to us as a young adult. She was the sweetest cat EVER!!

  26. I have a little old lady cat as well and she has the same look as Drewey, my Susie likes to sleep next to me every night. Wish she was still a kitten, but her crankyness as a little old lady is funny

    ReplyDelete
  27. she looks like my little old kitty.
    i swear they do have human thoughts and also learn to speak when they get older, mine must know 7 or 8 words he can speak quite clearly.
    she is just a lovely little lady.

  28. "Age cannot wither nor custom stale her infinite variety"! She's perfectly splendid, and I love her too - Elegance, your name is "Drewey".

  29. Loves to Miss Drewey!

    You are a very dignified lady kitty.
    Charlene may start to hassle you if the kittens don't arrive soon. But you are up to it...I know you are.

  30. Hi Drewey! You are such a lovely lady.

  32. Smoochies to Drewey's sweet head! I love geriatric kitties - the grumpier the better. :)

  33. Drewey, you're beautiful! <3 *kiss*

  34. I always thought she was gray and white. Now I see that little brown spot on her chest. What a pretty girl!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I.am.in.heaven. Little Drewey Junebug! An old girl after my own heart. An all-Rooster post. Oh, this is bliss. We all adore The Bean and the itty-bitties, but I think those of us who are more, um, vintage (I'm mid-century modern, myself) have a soft spot for the Queen Mum. Thank you, Laurie!!!

  36. You know what, I particularly love that last picture -- I can't even explain why, I just love it. A lot.

    ReplyDelete
  37. She's a beautiful girl! She looks so adorably cute, especially in the last one, I can tell what she looked like as a kitten. :-)

  38. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the senior kitties and she is a particularly splendid one. Like a well-loved stuffed animal.
