Royal cats (and other pets)
 
While there are lots of royals who have dogs as pets, the only royal I've seen having a cat as a pet is princess Michael of Kent, you can find a photo of her with her siamese cat here:http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/...96_468x308.jpg and she also have Burmese cats, http://www.johnstoddart.co.uk/files/...haelLT-319.jpg . Are there any other royals that have cats as pets?

I know that the Romanov family loved having pets
Grand duchess Olga nikolaievna had a cat named vaska, Czarevich aleksey had a king Charles spaniel named joy, grand duchess Tatiana had a dog named ortino, and I believe grand duchess Anastasia had a dog as well and that the czarevich's dog in 1918 went to go live at the court of king George v.

Yes, the "last Romanovs" had cats. Queen Alexandra also loved all sorts of animals and owned a few cats. In one bio I read that the current members of the BRF, apart from Princess Michael, don't like cats, but I don't know if that's true. At least I cannot imagine that really noone in this big family likes cats. ;)

I would like to add to my comment on the Romanov pets, that I remember grand duchess Anastasia nikolaievna having a dog named Jimmy and I think it was this dog that acompanied the family to Ekaterinburg.

Royal cats
 
In my opinion, all cats are treated like royalty regardless of who owns them! That is definitely the case with our cat!

Prince Rainier did not like cats. He had plenty of dogs though.

Do we really own cats??? :ermm: I don’t think so. I think they own us. I think they think they are the royals and we are their humble servants. :lol: And that is for me one of the reasons why I like them as much as I do.

In the book of Olivier Polet about the “Serres van Laken” there is a beautiful picture of a beautiful red cat.
And in the text they tell us that nobody knew where the cat came from. It just suddenly appeared. And it was there at all the receptions etc; it was probably the most petted cat by all royals and dignitaries

I like to be that cat for a while :biggrin:

His sister HSH Princess Antoinette of Monaco did,infact she loved all animals I believe and attended the annual St Francis Day pet blessing service in Monaco each year.

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

I just imagine my cat, Gus (who has great social skills, a muscular physique and a too-great need to "play") meeting the Corgies. OMG. Gus means well but he tends to greet other animals with a nose sniff followed by a full body take down - which he means very playfully as "Hi, I really like you!"

LOL. One on one - Gus would win but two on one - the Corgis would be king! :lol:

Seems like most royals prefer dogs over cats. Dog are loyal to their masters and cats do their own thing. Royals like a pet that are loyal to them and who obeys them and gives them attention. Cats aren't really know for obeying their owners.

Yes indeed. Our cat doesn't live with us; we live with him! Also he owns us, not the other way around.

Dogs think they're human. Cats KNOW they're gods.

Has anyone ever posted this from the HMS Vanguard when Elizabeth was 21: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/lif...s/your-life/#5

Nice kitty!

Admirer, when I clicked on that, all I got was a listing of links on their site. Any other way for me and the others to see this picture?

Try this - it will be the 4th picture. There is also a lovely top view of HM. Not to mention that the cat is spectacular!
