Sir Edmund Percival Hillary
Here is Sir Edmund Percival Hillary in all his magnificent floofy glory doing his full monty for the 2008 contest.
Here he is on top of the computer tower, proving that he still likes to climb things. When I did my farewell post for Captain Nels, I realized that I hadn't yet done the Meowers from Missouri and thought it was high time I rectified that. Ed was born in a friend of his present Mom's house when she let in an obviously pregnant cat, so her kittens could be born in safety. Ed was born on his Mom's birthday and she was very pleased to make him part of the family. He moved in at 8 weeks old and was rather taken aback by the presence of fully grown cats. He decided very young that the best place for him to be was up high. When spooked, he would climb up his Mom and sit on her head. With climbing abilities like these, he just had to be named Edmund Percival Hillary. He got the Sir because he is such a chivalrous cat. Ed weighs in at a hefty 23 pounds and it's a mystery how he got so big and the other kitties didn't, because they all eat the same food. He's not particularly lazy. He loves to run and jump and play. He is quite fond catnip.
Sir Edmund Hillary can climb anything. As a kitten, to Mom's head he'd cling. Now he views the fridge As a mountain ridge. Go, Sir Edmund, and climb that thing!
