The Top 5 Princesses of the Animal Kingdom

Thanks to Karma For Life Chick for having me here today!

princesssFrankly, Kate makes being a human princess look easy and fun.

But what about the animal kingdom?

While the lion is the king of beasts, are there any tiara-wearing, glass-slipper-clad creatures out there?

I think there are, and here are five of my top picks to prove royalty isn’t just in the blood, it’s in the fur and feathers, too, lol.

catJust look at this cat. From her expression, I can almost hear her saying “You there, peon human. Pet me! Then feed me! Then pet me again!”

This little princess lived with us twenty years, which, in cat terms, is older than either QE. We started her off with normal kitten food, but eventually she had us hand-roasting chicken breasts and spiral cut hams which we’d then process in the blender just for her. Though, for one of her royal purrs, it was totally worth it!

Forget dirty gray. This pigeon brings a new meaning to color with its iridescent feathers. It’s a pigeon, but surely it’s a royal one.  (photo credit: Bright Nicobar Pigeon via photopin (license))

Speaking of king of beasts and cats…

Here’s a princess who surely holds her own in an argument! (photo credit: Pissed! (In color) via photopin (license))

About the Book

Cinderella hungers to escape from under Widow Wikkid’s grinding thumb. But to snare a plum job at Prince Industries, Cin desperately needs her degree, and she can’t wrap her mind around tax accounting.

Then scarred but sexy Rafe Montoya ignites her imagination with his brilliant tutoring—and, as they work together in his cozy apartment, he sets her body on fire. She thinks he’s the one for her, until he starts pushing her to attend Gideon Prince’s marriage-mart ball.

Rafe is really Gideon Prince, head of Prince Industries. He must name his bride by his April first birthday or suffer the loss of his family fortune.

Rumors say he’s still single because women love his money and looks, not him. Is he lonely or just another duplicitous tycoon?

Hopefuls flock to Prince’s birthday ball, but only the woman who is kind, wise, and generous will win his heart. Is it Cin, or will her stepmother, as she always does, snatch the prize for her own daughters?

And on the night of the ball, when Cin discovers Rafe’s true identity, can she even accept his final test?

Warning: Rags-to-riches fairytale meets the texting generation. Stepsisters who are a blush-brush shy of a full makeup set, and a ball gown built like a tank. Contains material intended for mature audiences. Reader discretion advised.

For anyone who has ever been persecuted or hidden their light under a bushel.
