Ruby Says Hi


Hi everyone it’s Ruby!

I would just like to say that I miss all my blog buddies – especially my boyfriend Teddy. Rose sends hugs to her Genji. Meanwhile Oliver remains single at Scott’s insistence as he doesn’t want Oliver’s heart broken.

Did you know that we moved house? We now live in Leicester, in England’s East Midlands. We are renovating a house there. As you can see I am helping with the designs. If you want to see what’s happening you can have a look here. Who knows, you might see one of us popping up in a post!

Norty Ruby

Hi evfurrybody it’s Oliver! I have to tell yoo that Ruby has been very norty. Scott had all the windows open today as it was a lovely sunny day owtside. Scott finks a fly came in the window and it made us all crazy…

1015_129383927264747_1491383922_nOh no! It’s the Meiji period hand painted Noritake porcelain urn! It used to be one of a pair on the mantelpiece.

249325_129480360588437_1637041327_nHere is what it used to look like.

We are sorry we made a big noise. Scott is glad that he is going antique shopping in the Peak District in a couple of weeks. He has added a couple of fings to his list.

Easy Like Sunday

IMG_0102 - 2013-04-07 at 15-17-07Well hello there! This is Rose. Just a relaxing Sunday here. This is one of our new favourite sleeping spots – it’s a stool/storage box in the bathroom! It’s like a little hammock.

IMG_0097 - 2013-04-07 at 15-15-54I think I look very nice on it.

IMG_0108 - 2013-04-07 at 15-19-00Here’s Ruby in the study. The lovely quilt she’s on usually has a protective cat rug on it but it’s still out from when Mark was sick last week. He had a cold and is better now.

IMG_0109 - 2013-04-07 at 15-19-21Oliver is sound asleep on his favourite chair in the bedroom.

IMG_0110 - 2013-04-07 at 15-19-29Well, he was until the flashy box woke him up.

IMG_0117 - 2013-04-07 at 15-20-56Ah, that’s better without the flash.

IMG_0119 - 2013-04-07 at 15-21-04Though he still looks a little drowsy.

IMG_0125 - 2013-04-07 at 15-21-54And finally, I have changed position and am now on the bed looking gorgeous against the damask.

We hope you are having a good day!

Naughty Miss Rose

Well hello there this is Rose! Normally it’s Ruby who is naughty, so when Scott saw one of us jump on the kitchen bench he assumed it was her and said “Ruby -No!”. Tee hee!
By the way this isn’t a picture from Scott’s new flashy box, it’s from his new iPad Mini! It has games for cats on it and I LOVE playing with it!

Oh, No.

IMG_0010 - 2000-01-01 at 00-00-06Rose: Oh, no.

IMG_0021 - 2000-01-01 at 00-04-41Ruby: It can’t be.

IMG_0024 - 2000-01-01 at 00-05-49Oliver: It’s troo. Scott has a noo flashy box.

Shield yoor eyes!

“My August Repawt” by Oliver

Hi evfurrybody it’s Oliver here! We have missed yoo! I am sending yoo my August repawt from the top of the bookcase in Mark’s study.

As yoo can see I am all grown up now – did yoo know that Ruby and I will be two years old soon? I am a little on the husky side so I am on a bit of a diet at the moment.

I think Scott has a smudge on this lens.

What would my repawt be wifowt a pitcher of my paw? Tee hee! If yoo look closely yoo can see I have a yooneek identifying mark on my left paw – it’s a tiny patch of white fur that I have had since I was a kitten!

We are all very well here. I still enjoy sleeping, and playing wif my sisfurs, and lounging abowt and lying upside down.

Here is Ruby on the window sill, looking at berds owtside and keeping an eye on the neighbourhood.

Be careful yoo don’t fall owt the window Ruby! It’s OK, she knows what she is doing. Ruby is long and sleek and lean and she is a very byootiful and smart lady. She does the thinking for all of us! Tee hee!

Here is Miss Rose come to say hello. Rosie is almost fully grown now too. She has probably already told you abowt her successes at the cat shows. She now has two Premier Certificates. Next week she is going wif Scott to the Chester show. All she needs in one more Premier certificate to gain a Premier Champion title! We are crossing our paws for her.

You can see that Rosie’s “mask” is nicely developed now – that’s the dark area arownd her face. The rest of her “points” (the dark areas on her paws and tail) are also very nice. In November she is going to GCCF Supreme Show all the way over in Birmingham – it is the big annual national show for cats – just like the Crufts Show is for dogs.

Here she is practising some of her poses!

We hope that everybody in the Cat Blogosphere is happy and well – we send you our love and our purrs!
