The Delivfurry!

Hi evfurrybody it’s Oliver!

Yoo know, today we have had the suck monster chasing us all day, which is unyooshual ‘cos it normally happens on Fridays. Scott says he is cleaning the howse today ‘cos he’s going away later in the week and needs to leave the howse nice for me and my sisfurs and Mark.

Anyway, things had quietened down when we got a delivfurry through the door! Ruby loves noo boxes and here she is making sure she owns the box by rolling around all over it.

I then had to give it an inspeckshun. We both love to chew the plastic straps.

See? Rose stayed in the kitchen for this bit. I think she just like us to get on wif it cos she’s not that fussed.

Do yoo know what was inside? That’s right – our litter!

Ahem, quite a lot of litter. That’s cos we are indoor cats. Scott says that it’s typical that we like the most expensive litter yoo can buy!

Then Ruby discovered something else in the box.

Hooray! Food! Ten kilograms of it!

It’s even got a pitcher of Ruby on it!

Scott took the food downstairs into the lower ground floor. He puts it into these big drums for safekeeping. There is one drum for this food, which Rose likes to eat (even though she’s still a kitten!). The food Ruby and I eat goes in the other drum. We don’t eat the British Shorthair food anymore ‘cos it’s too big – Ruby doesn’t have enough teef to really get crunching on big crunchies and I find they get stuck in the back of my jaw where my wisdom teeth were taken owt.

Yoo see, British Shorthair crunchies are very big and hard and that’s meant to keep teeth healthy and develop the jaw muscles that give us our big round faces. Anyway, we like Royal Canin Exigent instead, which are smaller and very tasty.

Ruby wants to turn on the treadmill.

Rose doesn’t really like coming downstairs to the lower ground floor – she prefers to wait for us to come back up. Perhaps she’s skerred.

Just in case there’s a ghost down there she had her vampire eyes on. Most cats have yellow or green “laser eyes” when the camera flashes, but Rose has red ones! Ruby says she will explain it to us all in a later post ‘cos she’s been reading about colourpoint cats.

Miss Rose Reports

Well hello there! This is Rose.

It’s Sunday morning and it’s grey and damp outside.

A perfect day for spending time with my brother and sister watching the birds. One of our favourite positions is Scott’s desk, which has a great view of the silver birch trees and all the little birds that like to hop around on them. Oliver and Ruby get the chatters when they see birds but I tend not to do that.

Especially if there’s a camera for me to pose for!

Did you know that Ruby and I are almost the same size these days? That’s right – I’m growing into a lady! Have a nice Sunday everyone!

Hi everyone it’s Ruby here!

First of all Happy New Year to you all!

Tonight it is extremely windy here. I am trying to get a good look at all the noise outside but can only pull back the blind so far before it interferes with this bronze lamp.

Ah, that’s better.

Rose and Oliver are a little scared of the racket but I just want to understand the meteorology behind it. There have been some noises outside on the roof so Scott and Mark are worried about the slate tiles. Also there is howling  and clattering happening in the chimneys so we think that there is some material dislodging and falling down.

We just hope the electricity doesn’t go out!

A safe night to you all!
