Every dog has his day, but the nights are reserved for the cats — like Charlie, the self-purr-claimed leader of the Trojansky household. But before he became king of the house, Charlie got his start where many dignitaries first get their paws wet: college!

As a kitten, Charlie was adopted from the SPCA near Penn State University by some cat-loving co-eds. Because of the university’s strict no-pet policy, he (furtively) bounced from dorm to dorm until being brought home by Mike’s and Irena’s daughter, a Penn State student. Today, he presides like a prince over the family along with his two-legged sisters, Natali and Lia. But even an educated cat like Charlie couldn’t outsmart cryptorchidism, a common birth defect in which the testicles fail to descend. To prevent torsion and reduce the risk of cancer, Charlie’s vet recommended surgery, which was covered by Petplan. The surgery was a success, and after a few weeks of healing, Charlie was back in charge.
