Happy Tails: Meet Ruffles

Author’s Note: Thank you very much Miss Valeria for letting me ask questions about Ruffles. Pictures used with permission.

How old are they?
2 y/o

What is their name?
Ruffles

How did they come to live with you?
I was doing the usual when I looked out the window and saw something small moving under a truck. I went outside and saw it was a kitten, I tried to pet him but he was so scared. I left food outside and saw he was eating, kept doing that during the day.

Next day I went outside and I couldn’t find him anymore, I was very sad until I hear a meow. Went outside and he was already living in my patio, so since that day he let us live with him!.

How many pets do you have?
Only Ruffles, but the neighbor’s dogs come to visit every once in a while.

Do they all get along?
Oh no, the Labrador and the German Shepherd are scared of him

Does your cat have any unusual habits?
He has a dog house, he loves it. He doesn’t care if its meant to be for a dog. Don’t touch the house, NEVER!. And he loves to sleep, eat, watch cat TV, everything! On top of the house.

He also loves the rain. Doesn’t matter if it’s such a terrible weather, he loves to lay on the floor and get soaked.

What is their favorite thing to do?
Eat. Doesn’t matter if he ate 5 minutes ago, he will want food again and again and again.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thank you, Christina for taking the time to ask about my cat. And thank you everyone for reading.

Happy Tails: Meet Cheezle

Author’s Note: Many thanks to Miss Catherine for letting me ask her questions about her famous freckled feline. Pictures used with permission.

How old is Cheezle?

He will turn 16 Wednesday June 21.

 How did he come to live with you? 

Cheezle’s mother was a stray cat, and pregnant. My sister’s took her in and she took to me even though i wasn’t a cat person at the time. A few weeks later, we had kittens.
He lived at my parents house until 2011. That’s when I finally got a place I could have him. When he lived with them he had a dog brother and sister and a cat brother named Giovanni. He hates Giovanni!
 
How did he get those awesome freckles?
Orange cats can get freckles as they get older. This article explains it a little more http://www.catster.com/lifestyle/5-remarkable-facts-about-your-cats-nose-freckles
He just got more and more freckles, the older he got
 
He is so expressive, was it always like that?
I think Cheezle has always had an expressive face. Maybe more so now since I am constantly photographing him
When he was younger and lived with my parents he was an indoor outdoor cat. He loved eating rabbits. In the summer he could catch one every day. When he came to live with me, my parents said the rabbit population exploded!
He was keeping them in check
 
Does he have any furry brothers or sisters?
Right now he is the only pet. He doesn’t like other cats. I would love to get another cat but Cheezle won’t allow it. I don’t want to stress him out.
Yeah. He isn’t big on sharing
 
Anything else you want to share about Cheezle?
Well… He is very vocal. He does not have a normal meow, it’s more of a howl. Even though he looks angry all the time, he is actually a very sweet cat. He doesn’t bite or scratch and is quite social, at least with me. He hates when I leave him. He greets me everyday at the door when I get home from work.
