The Sexiest Man Cat Alive


Before you think my handsome, black catness has gone to my head, you should know I did not come up with the title. The culprit is the humom and as editor, she gets final say on such things. It all started with a photo of me and some full moon craziness. Layla thought I looked impossibly debonair. I have to admit, I’m not too shabby for a senior dude. You might even say sexy, but never mind the sexy schmexy business. Sexiest Man Cat Alive ?  I think we’d need a contest first. If we held a contest, leave it to my bro, Odin to muscle in and try to win. You can see a video of him prancing like a fool in the sidebar from our Instagram feed (not visible on mobile devices). My predecessor and furbro angel Merlin, could easily have claimed the sexiest man cat title. In his younger days, his vet  always called him a sexy beast. Even at the same age as me, 17, he still had “it”.

Enough about sexy man cats. More importantly, my role as an advocate for black cat adoption is what counts. I say all you need is love and a black cat.  

Now, if you want to see sexy, my great, great, great uncle Liam was even painted by famous artist Louis Wain. Oh, he’d make the ladies faint dead away.

That’s where I get my brooding good looks. Seriously, am I not a work of art?


My moment of family shame.  A not so distant cousin dared to be the sexiest man cat meowdel in the ’70s but failed miserably.  The horror of lounge pajamas. Can you imagine he wasn’t even neutered? Thank the cat gods, we know better now spay/neuter saves lives.

I apologize for the previous flashback to my less than purrfect family tree. What can I say, Black Cats Tell All. To remove the lingering odor of tiger stripes polyester, I hope this artistic watercolor of moi will prevent unsubscribes. Have a blue skies week.

    1. Thanks so much Elise. We appreciate all the awards we get but don’t post about them or add side bar badges. In order to be fair we’d have to post all of them and we don’t have the bandwidth.

  2. dood….thiz commint iz late but de sent a mentz de same….ewe total lee rock; knot onlee iz ewe handsum… ya haz mor class then uz…ewe noe oh what we speek…..

  3. Hannah has a lovely coat and is mostly black all over (just a few splashed of white) but Lucy has a tabby coat so it isn’t as warm for her in the garden when the rain gets her wet, wet, wet!!

      1. We like the idea of a historic version of Merlin – kind of like the perpetual James Bond. Although, of course, Merlin is far handsomer and sexier that any of the James Bonds…

    1. We agree that Clyde is awesome, but Merlin is the “IT” man. Nothing beats those Siamese eyes (say Buddy and Lucky who, of course, Siameezers).

  4. Clyde, admittedly you are a good looking old dude. I have never thought an animal sexy per se, but handsome fits you to a “T” You have beautiful eyes and there lies a beautiful soul.

  5. Nellie tells me there are so many sexy man cats and she thinks that they ALL are number 1 (what can I say, she always said, Ìf you can`t be with the one you love then the one you are with is number one!`) Clyde, you are a hunk!
    Love Barb

  6. Black cats are totally sexy! Well, except for the one my human had when she was very young – he was kind of a goof. But there’s always the exception that proves the rule.

  7. Layla,
    we love the artwork! We think that Clyde is a sexy mancat!
    We were at Petsmart on Saturday and sadly there were many cats, especially kittens and a very high percentage of black ones.
    We keep purring and praying that people will wake up and do what is right for animals!

  8. Clyde, I am still figuring out IG, but I will attempt to get to #blackcatstellall.
    The old lounge pajamas are still being worn by someone, somewhere, I am sure…but I don’t want to see it!
    Our Chucky is so handsome, I think we may have to have a contest!

    1. Oh, no you’re probably right about the pajamas and yes, Chucky is a looker. Let us know if you want to hold a contest. I’ll probably do something on IG.
