Meet Horatio Nelson!

Horatio Nelson: The aloof (and adorable tripod) snuggle master! Approach him gently and let him come to you, and you’ll discover a world of endless cuddles and purrs. Don’t be fooled by his skittish nature, he’s a playful guy embracing life as a tripod kitty who knows how to have a good time.

His full name is Fleet Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson, and was named for the British Admiral who lost his right arm in the 1797 Battle of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and went back to issue orders to his crew approximately 1/2 hour after his amputation was completed. Cat Horatio Nelson has the same “Never-Say-Die” type of spirit.
