He has beaming eyes

The fur is grey and white

He howls like a wolf

He scratches with his paw

My cat is 80 years old

   
 

Poem writer Gustav



This redhead cutie called Gustav typed the origin set of poems which his human, Göran Greider, later edited and published as a collection. The collection of poems where sold for donations to Animal protection  (rescue?) Sweden. Gustav is no longer with us but Göran still loves cats besides politcs. 



The nobel scandal

Especially since the permanent secretary of the Swedish academy, announcer of the Nobel Prize in literature, is a cat lover. His cats are called Pollux and Castor, same as the nicknames Simone de Beauvoir and Jean Paul Sartre used to have for each other. Kind of cute isn’t it?

This is pollux.

And this is Castor
