“Hello CuteOverload! I am a ginormous fan of your website and I often wished over the years that I had a cute little munchkin of my own so I could one day get him on the site,” sez Jessie W.

“WELL, I’m so happy to say that my husband and I recently got a silver-shaded British Shorthair near our hometown of Seattle, WA, and he is just abso-freaking-lutely adorable!”

“His name is Nermal (from Garfield) and we hope you agree that he is a cutie!”

He is very sweet, playful, and we think he looks like a raccoon from the back due to his striped tail, hehe.


Here are some of his best pictures (you will notice how much he has grown as these pictures were taken over several weeks!)



  1. Those eyes in the last pic, so round and with the tiniest of “wing”…. Swoon.

  5. Rachael says:

    He truly is one of the most beautiful kittehs I’ve ever seen. Wow!! 🙂

  6. Jessie — That’s a whole lot of cute for one couple to handle. If you ever need a break, just leave a message and I’d be glad to kitteh-sit Nermal for a weekend, or a week, or a Month, or a year — whatever you need. 🙂

    Wow!!! Gorgeous kitteh! That picture of Nermal sleeping with his belleh exposed is too much — Jessie, I bet you can’t resist snorgling that tummy and kissing that sweet head. That much adorableness turns me to mush. 😀

  8. Possibly one of Simon’s cats? Gone on holiday in the states?

  9. Thank you all so much for your kind comments! We are so lucky to have Nermal and it’s lovely having his cute face around all the time. 😉 -Jessie W.

    These pics need to come with a warning tag! I was doing ok, holding it together, until the fourth pic…now I am ded…DED 😵 I tell you! (Really does look like Nermal!)

  11. What a sweet little kitteh with a stripy tail.

  12. shannon says:

    Does he keep himself small and cute like Nermal in the comics? That is, has he had cosmetic surgery and is he addicted to coffee and cigarettes? (Really, this was in the comics!)

  13. He is adorable! So, so precious. So happy for you.

  14. AWW 😀 I hope you have many long and happy years with dear sweet Nermal, Jessie W. 😀
