We’re Back

Hi evfurrybody it’s Oliver here! Well I am happy to say that we are back home now. John and Vicky were very nice to us. They took lots of pictures like this one to post on Facebook so that the Beans could see we were getting food and head scritches and stuff and were not being forced to make fake Gucci wallets.

Ruby plotted a few escapes

but I must admit I’m not very good at following instructions.

I found this noo bed quite comfortable!

OK Oliver are you ready? You hide under the bed. I’ll call the guard and pretend that you’re sick. When he comes in to check on you I’ll knock him out with a blow to the back of the head. Then we’ll be free!

OK Ruby, I’m ready.

Oliver no! You’ve blown it! You were meant to stay under the bed!

PS: Thanks to John and Vicky at Bowring Park Luxury Cattery for the photos!

Telling Us Apart

Hi everyone it’s Ruby here! Some people find it difficult to tell Oliver and I apart. Really it’s quite easy – I am the better speller! Also Oliver spends a lot of his time upside down or playing with his toys, whereas I am learning Italian with Scott.

Here are some tips so that you can tell which one of us is which.

Firstly my eyes are a deeper copper colour than Oliver’s – and yes, they’re real! No falsies or coloured contacts for me.

Here you can see that Oliver’s eyes are a little lighter than mine and he has the slightest tinge of green right near his pupils. You can also see that his face is slightly more oval in shape and his eyes a bit wider apart than mine

whereas my face is narrower and a little more pointy.

Oliver’s tail is big and fluffy and often stands straight up

my tail is longer and more slender. So is my body – here you can see that my body is long and slim and I have narrow hips.

Oliver’s body is shorter and tubby – Scott say’s “well-uphostered” and the judges at the cat show said “plump and muscular”.

You can see in this picture that Oliver is bigger than me. You can see that Oliver’s legs and paws are bigger than mine. This photo also highlights the differences in our face shape –

Oliver has much fluffier cheeks.

Here are Oliver’s big paws.

If you look carefully here you can see that the texture of our coats is different too. I’m on the left and you can see my coat is a bit sleeker than Oliver’s – his coat is thicker and fluffier but my coat is a bit closer to the breed standard. Neither of us have particularly coarse coats though as we live inside and are spoilt with things like central heating in the winter.

Oliver often looks crabulated in photos despite being very sweet in real life. It has something to do with the flash. I often look a bit startled.

We are even different colours! Oliver’s coat is slightly lighter than mine.

Can you see?

Now, here are some tests for you. Try to tell who is who. Some of them are kitten shots so we weren’t as developed as we are now.

1. Ruby is on the a) right or b) left

2. Ruby is on the a) right or b) left

3. Ruby is on the a) right or b) left

4. Ruby is on the a) right or b) left

5. Ruby is on the a) right or b) left

6. Ruby is on the a) right or b) left (this one is quite tricky!)

7. Ruby is on the a) right or b) left

8. Ruby is on the a) right or b) left

You shouldn’t have any problems at all now!

To be honest though, sometimes even the Beans mix us up if they’re not paying proper attention!

Ruby Tuesday

Hi everyone it’s Ruby here!

I’m the one on the right. Oliver and I enjoy sitting on Scott’s desk. We snoopervise all the goings on in the street and are transfixed by the birds that land in the silver birches outside. It looks like rain today but the last week or so has been wonderful and summery. The Beans are discussing a holiday which can only mean one thing –  the luxury cattery maximum security prison.

Meow Meow Meme Monday

Hi evfurrybody it’s Oliver here! Thank yoo to Clooney for including us in a meme! We are sorry we are late but Scott has been entertaining overseas visitors! Anyway here are the questions:

Where do you like to hang owt?

Well, I usually always hang owt wif my sisfur and the two of us usually follow the beans around and settle in the room they are in. If Scott is in the study I like my cushion in the corner and Ruby usually likes to sleep on the desk or on her armchair. If Scott gets up though she will sneak onto his desk chair. If the beans are in the kitchen we like the top of the cat tree. I usually hang my head owt the side. If the beans are in different rooms then we move around a bit more.

Who is yoor favourite kitty crush?

Ruby has a boyfriend (tee hee!) and his name is Teddy Westlife. I don’t have a gerlfriend cos Scott says I am too young but I am eight minutes older than Ruby so that can’t be the reason. He says we only know older cats and he would only let me go owt wif a cat under a year old. If there are any young gerls owt there then let me know! I also fink that Neytiri is very pretty.

What is yoor favourite scent?

We are like Neytiri and enjoy window whiffles. There is always something new to smell owt there!

What is yoor favourite TV show?

We like nature documentaries wif fast moving fings like berds and squirrels that dash across the screen. I also went crazy for the new Audi car ad – Scott says it’s cos of the movement and high contrast.

What is yoor favourite moovie?

We really liked 101 Dalmations – lots of spotty woofies! We often don’t stay still long enuff to see a whole moovie!

What is the best piece of feline wisdom?

We are only nine months old but my piece of wisdom would be “Spend more time wif yoor head upside down and yoor legs in the air – yoo can see the world from a different point of view”. Ruby’s is “If yoo study something long enough yoo can control it”.

Pass the meme on:

We have so many furriends we would be happy for any of them to take part, so please do!
