Mid-April Already?

Hi everyone it’s Ruby! We can’t believe it’s mid-April already – spring is well and truly in the air. That means it’s warming up, the windows are open for window-whiffles and the odd fly that we can chase around the house, and we’re starting to shed our fur.

Here is Rose doing her fur seal impression. Scott says Rose’s fur is the most conspicuous in the house because it shows up on everything – particularly this red rug. Every week when he vacuums he fills the entire vacuum cleaner with our fur!

Oliver (pictured above) is obsessed with the little finches that leap about on the silver birches outside the window.

Anyway, time for some mad running about the house!

Ruby says Hmmm

Hi everyone it’s Ruby.

Three things displease me. First, we haven’t posted for a while. Second, I haven’t seen my boyfriend Teddy because he has been on holiday. Third, did you realise that the last 3 posts have been from my sister?

Plus Rose is bigger than me now. That’s four things then.

On the plus side my fur is looking particularly velvety.

Norty Ruby

Hi evfurrybody it’s Oliver. Scott thinks it’s funny that I always have the guilty face on even if it’s not me being norty.

We all know who the real culprit is, don’t we Rosie?

That’s right – it’s Ruby being NORTY!

She’s on the kitchen bench!

Get down Ruby before yoo get us all in trouble!

Nooo! Don’t drink from the tap!

My sisfur Ruby never listens.

The Re-Fur

Well hello there! This is Miss Rose.

The Suck Monster has been all over the house today so I think the least I can do is re-deposit some of my gorgeous white fur on the furniture, don’t you?


Buy the way – this was me on the same chair five months ago. Scott says I have grown into quite a young lady.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

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!

Miss Rose Reports

Well hello there! This is Miss Rose!

You know, I think my brother and sister have had too much blog-time recently. Yes, they have had some teeth out – but let’s not forget that I had a complete hystero-oophorectomy six weeks ago! Jeesh!

In addition, I’m pretty!

I’m mean I’m really, really, pretty.

Anyway, here is the beautiful Christmas scene in the living room. Take my advice: don’t eat needles from a Nordman Fir tree. Dis-gust-ing.

The tree looks very nice though. It freaked Ruby out – ha! Did you know that this is my first Christmas ever? Oliver and Ruby were here last Christmas but they never saw the tree – they were tiny kittens back then and they were living in the kitchen until they got used to being here.

Here are our Christmas stockings hanging on the mantelpiece! I hope I get a crinkle ball!

Ruby wants the complete works of Simone de Beauvoir.

Oliver wants world peace, or a new mousey. Perhaps both but he doesn’t want to appear greedy.

Here’s another pic of me.

And this is my standard 8×10 glossy. I can autograph this one for a small fee…
