Morris (cat) and Champy (horse) have made each other happy for 6 years

Morris was born at an animal shelter and was adopted at 9 months of age. Champy who was 12 months old when Morris came into his life had an immediate connection with Morris who took a little while to get over the size difference which is unsurprising. Within a few days Morris was on Champy’s back. Amazing.

They love doing the day-to-day things together:

Morris jumps on with the help of a fence post. They are on social media: Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. I believe that they live with Jennifer Boyle who is the co-writer of the article on the Bored Panda website. I am not sure where they live. It looks America but someone can correct me if they wish.

P.S. I need to write a postscript because about an hour ago I criticised the making of a celebrity cat, Willow, because the cat’s fame is based on her ‘weird’ appearance (I don’t see weirdness but the cat’s owner accepts that word as a description).

The lower level of celebrity of Morris and Champy is okay for me. There is nothing exploitative about it as it simply celebrates the pleasantness and positivity of a close friendship between a domestic cat and a horse. What I can’t accept is the voyeuristic nature of turning ‘weird’ cats into celebrities.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
