COT: Sonu

Heard a great feel good story from Manpreet Purewal the other day.

"Sonu's our darling (he's not really our pet)...It's more like he's our master. Sonu turned 10 years old (in human years- I honestly don't know how the conversion to cat years works) this month. Ten years ago early Feb (1998), my younger brother found this gorgeous, tiny lil kitten sitting by his sibling mewing and crying. Dead sibling, to be more precise, a car had run over the other tiny kitten's head. So my brother did what any of us lot would have done... We named him Sonu Singh Purewal."

"Sonu and my Mom are the CLOSEST. Sonu sleeps on her bed EVERY NIGHT, at the foot of her bed. And because he sprawls himself all over, my mom has to sleep at an angle, being careful as to not kick him during the night. Haha...I didn't mention though that Sonu weights 10kgs, have i? :)"



Isn't he cute? Lucky, lucky Sonu!

What a beautiful cat ! 10 kgs that's a lot I already complain about Arthur who must weight 7 kgs now. When I lift him up I always think I will get muscles like Sylvester Stallone !
BTW I looked in my cat age conversion, he is 58 years old ! Not bad !

Hell's AngeL said...

Manpreet Purewal @ One of Sonu's many slaves!

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Sonu is a big, handsome fellow! Dragonheart only weighs 3.65 kg, and Merlin weighs 2.7 kg. We are very glad he was rescued!

Irishcoda said...

Oh that is a feel good story! :)

Deana said...

Gosh 10kg is bigger than Darius who was put on a diet! But Darius's muscles were turning to a fat tummy too. I need to do my kitty conversion!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Sonu is a very cute, very large ManCat! We tend to be bed hogs also.

Mother of Invention said...

Very cute and lucky!!! Guess we can't think about the other cats who have not made it or we'd be too sad.

Sonu's is like my man kitty
Spooky, hogs the bed. If you push
him a bit to get in bed, he makes
a funny gargle-like sound just
to let you know he doen't like
being moved. Yes a big cat, well
loved and lots of treats?

Andrée said...

What a heartbreaking story. I am so glad that Sonu is happy with a wonderful family. I used Goggle to convert 22 kg: it is 22 lbs! OMG! I bet he keeps Manpreet warm at night! My CoT is here. Thank you.

I've met Sonu personally. He really does weigh 10kg, maybe even more! Its the biggest cat I have ever seen!

Hell's AngeL said...

tho i must tell you guys...don't be fooled by his handsome looks...sonu has a pretty massive attitude that goes along with his weight! seriously...if ever there'd be a mobster cat...Sonu Singh would make the cut!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Dizzyjules said...

That's such a cool picture!! Sonu really knows how to work it for the camera huh...he must've been a male model in his previous life :p

It always feels good to hear of a kitty growing up to be so self-assured (and heavy LOL)despite having such a rough start in life. Shows how tough these creatures can be.
