Throwing it back to 3 on Thursday with 3 memes that I hope will make…
This week’s topic comes directly from Kym . . . 3 facts about Fred and George!
- Fred and George were born on August 31, 2021 so they are now almost 6 months old. I found the breeder in a Facebook group for Siamese cats in Massachusetts and they came to live with us on November 5, 2021. They were a little shy that first day but Mikey (who we now call the Cat Whisperer) got them to come out from hiding and they’ve been bounding through our house ever since.
- People ask (a lot) how we tell them who is who. At first, it was only by their collars. Fred wears red and George wears green. Now, though, I have learned other ways. George’s fur is significantly softer than Fred’s and that allows me to tell them apart in the dark . . . when they jump on the bed in the middle of the night, mostly. George is also quite a bit bigger than Fred. Their markings are pretty much identical but some people think George’s face mask goes up higher on his head than Fred’s. (I have trouble seeing this difference.) Their personalities are also quite different. Fred is always the first one to try anything new and he’s much more adventuresome. He’s also more cuddly. George is a bit more reserved and he takes a little longer to try new things.
- They both have terrible manners when it comes to food. They are extremely persistent in trying to take food from our plates or bowls and fending off two of them is a huge challenge. They’ve been like this all along and we don’t feed them from the table and, so far, have not been able to break them of this really annoying behavior. Right now our solution is to shut them in our bedroom when we eat dinner. I don’t like doing it but it’s better than having a cat trying to steal my pork chop, you know? This is really (at least so far) the only thing the do that truly bugs me, they are generally well behaved and well mannered.
And that’s the facts on Fred and George. I love them like crazy and I’m so glad we made the decision to make them part of our family. They are friendly and cuddly, they make me laugh with their antics, and they are a great addition to our lives.
