Neville is a handsome fellow. His fur is slowly growing back from where it was severely trimmed during his veterinary visit. He allows me to pet him and purrs during it; he sometimes sits on my lap. But he won’t suffer my attentions for long. And he is often afraid that I am coming to stick a needle in him, for his insulin.
Even so, he is progressing in his interactions with his resident human. I can certainly get physically close to him. This is how I noticed that while some of his whiskers are white, others are a lustrous grey; a silver, if you will. I think this merely adds to his handsomeness.

He sure is a striking-looking boy. I wonder how such a beautiful cat came to be abandoned?ReplyDelete
Oh what a handsome boy. I thought so from the start!ReplyDelete
Oh yes, The Nevsky is one handsome mancat!ReplyDelete
Ah! He's a lovely fella..ReplyDelete
I've certainly taken to him..
The photos are lovely to...Bless!x
Those are wonderful silver whiskers and Neville is quite a handsome fellow. His ruff is striking too. Toby, our House Panfur, is turning 13 and now has two white whiskers. One on either side which looks wonderful. Our Buddy Budd had all black whiskers up till about 16 when they slowly turned white.ReplyDelete
I’ve seen Toby’s white whiskers; they are quite striking amid all the black.Delete
I've always thought that Neville was absolutely gorgeous, and I'm so glad to hear that he's slowly but surely becoming more of a purr-puss and a lap-cat.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos of a beautiful boy.ReplyDelete
Neville is such a handsome boy! His ruff reminds me of the high neck collars in the old English court of Henry VIII,ReplyDelete
Neville is very handsome with his silver whiskers.ReplyDelete
He is a handsome guy.ReplyDelete
Yep, Neville pretty much nails the handsome dude thing!ReplyDelete
Neville is handsome, no doubt about it. The closeups of his face really shows off that beautiful grey fur!ReplyDelete
Is his diabetes getting under control?
Yes, I consider his diabetes well-managed. He is still receiving three units of insulin twice a day, but his numbers are very good, and he shows no symptoms of it otherwise. I'm not concerned with the dosage of insulin if he is feeling good.Delete
I am so pleased to hear this!Delete
Handsome Neville, and you took such clear close upReplyDelete
photos. Glad to hear he keeps getting more used to you
and handling by you. I guess humans go through gray hair
with age, so do dogs, and now you have shown us cats too.
My previous cats had white whiskers, so I have not experienced
this, it will be something to look for on Precious since hers
are all gray so far.
Over at Tim’s Tomcat Commentary, Toby, an all-black cat has a couple of white whiskers now, though I don’t think he is that old, and their late Buddy Budd’s whiskers had turned white in his old age.Delete
I've had lapcats and non-lapcats. And sometimes one who changed from non-lap to lap when a companion cat went OTB.ReplyDelete
Both me and Miss Pops are both going more grey around the edges.ReplyDelete
Neville, you are such a handsome mancat. We are glad that he lets you pet him more and says thank you through his purrs. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Have a great day.ReplyDelete
