Our Speshull Day!


Hi evfurrybody it’s Oliver and Ruby! We hope yoo are all well in the Cat Blogosphere. Scott has let us get on the compyooter today cos it’s our speshull day – today Ruby and I turn TWO YEARS OLD! These are our offishal birfday pawtraits. Above yoo can see Ruby on the left and I am on the right.

Here is my individual pawtrait. Scott says I am a very handsome mancat. I still don’t have a gerlfriend though, ‘cos Scott won’t let me. Anyway, two sisfurs is enough women in my life! For my pawtrait I was aiming to look ‘angelic’, which means I am a good boy (and I am a good boy ‘cos Scott says so – he says I am a sweet boy and I am a polite gentleman and I bring mousies and I am a very good bruvfur to my sisfurs).

Here is Ruby’s pawtrait. She said she was going for ‘intense’. That’s her alright!

Ruby also wanted a second pitcher next to the books she has been reading. Yoo see, Ruby has been helping Scott read all twelve novels on the Man Booker Prize 2012 longlist. She would like yoo to know that disagrees wif the judges shortlist of the five novels that came out a week or so ago. She prefers the books she is next to in the pitcher, which include The Teleportation Accident, Communion Town and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. Those are the books she gave the ‘bitey of approval’ to. She also paid a lot of attention when Scott was reading these books and completely ignored Scott when he read Narcopolis (which made the official shortlist even though Ruby hated it).

Of course, when Rosie saw the camera she just had to get in on the action even thought it’s NOT her birfday! Here she is wif me.

Here she is by herself.

She also insisted on a ‘moody close-up’ for her portfolio cos she says she wants to be a supermodel cat and do advertising work and editorials.

This is as close as Scott got to getting all three of us in the frame at once.

Yoo know, we are very lucky cats cos we have a speshull home and lots of good foods like choona to eat and we have humans who love us. So for our birfday we decided we didn’t need speshull presents.  Instead we have a noo Sponsor Sisfur! Her name is Paige. Paige is a very sweet gerl but she has very speshull needs cos she was in an accident so she is having trouble finding a forever home. She is looked after by the lovely people at Freshfields Animal Rescue in Formby. That is why we have made her our Sponsor Sisfur. Yoo can read more abowt Paige here. We also made a donation of food and toys to the RSPCA in Halewood.

Anyway – we are looking forward to having a great day! If you want to see us when we little kittens yoo can look here!

The Pawtrait Outtakes

Oliver: Let’s put the bitey on this chair.

Oliver: In fact I think I’ll put the claw on this tassel instead.

Ruby: You can keep the tassel, I’m going for these…

Ruby: I think I’ll put the claw on this blind cord.

Ruby: ….and the bitey.

Ruby: Or maybe I’ll go for the other one.

Scott: Can you two just hold still for one second!!

Oliver: Um…OK.

Ruby: What shall we do now?

Oliver: I don’t know about yoo Ruby but I’m tired.

Ruby: Yeah me too – out of the way Oliver, I was here first!

Oliver and Ruby’s Pawtrait

Hello, Ruby here!

Scott is very pleased that I managed to stay still long enough to have my picture taken with Oliver. He now has a photo of the two of us that he can put in a frame.

We look very elegant in this picture but what is really going on? We will show you some outtakes tomorrow!

My furst offishal pawtrait

Hi evfurrybody! Oliver here! This is my furst offishal pawtrait that Scott took of me. He says I am getting more handsome by the day.

He tried to also get one of me and Ruby together. I was very patient but as yoo can see, Ruby either looked skerred…

…or blurry.

He says he needs to buy a faster lens, but that sounds expensive.
