Feline Friday – #65 – what big ears you have



When I first met Freddie in August of 2013 I was amused by his huge ears. He was six months old when I adopted him. This photo was taken two months later at eight months.

Gosh, this should have been a clue he was going to grow up to be a gigantic cat. He is now four years old and has definitely grown into those ears. Now his ears look suitable for his 16 lb (7.25 kg) body!


Despite his size he is still as kittenish and rambunctious as ever. You just don’t want to get in the way of this speeding bullet train as he will knock you over.

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

  1. Wow! He’s a big one! My old (deceased) cat Jake has ginormous paws when I got him. He was 3 to 4 months old and living (not very effectively) on the streets. It was the first time I saw a cat with big paws. He grew into them as he got very tall and long but he was lean. He topped out at 14 but looked thin and sleek. He was all black so it was very panther like.

    • I wish I could say Freddie was muscular but I think he is just plain overweight. He gets only the best high-protein cat food and plenty of exercise. I would prefer Freddie to be thin and sleek. But he runs around and has great jumping skills so he seems to be okay.

      • If he can jump, he’s gold. Hazel, my tubby one, cannot jump more than chair height. When I exercise her, she will bat with her paws but will not chase anything. We always laugh at her version of exercise (paw batting).

  2. Hopefully he won’t grow any bigger! Sounds like he is exercising.


    • He gets plenty of exercise with his gym membership… well, his pal Frankie chases him up and down the stairs! But he is very athletic for such a big boy and enjoys jumping up on high places.

  3. Oh Freddie is a beautiful cat! My sweet kitty boy Minki (white with redbrown patches) also grew into a huge and beautiful cat and ended up being over 7kg as well. He was my best friend growing up. He sadly went over the rainbow in 1997, when I was 17. Still miss him badly.
    Love Freddies gorgeous eyes and white whiskers! Such a sweetheart!
    Murli and I wish you a wonderful day!😺💕
