    Introducing Ruby and Lulu

    I know I have been catastrophically slow in properly introducing Ruby and Lulu. They have not quite been with us a year, but itís not terribly far off it.

    We took my Mum to the open day at a local shelter at the end of August last year because she thought she might like another cat. She didnít get one, but we ended up with two. Ruby and Lulu are sisters and were together in the cage. At the time we saw them, Lulu was being forcibly washed by Ruby Ė it drew quite a crowd. They were 10 months old and had come from a house where things had got out of control. The owners quickly found themselves with 13 cats and rising. Ruby and Lulu were six months when the shelter took all the cats and Ruby was found to be already pregnant. She had two little kittens, which had since been adopted, and the shelter was looking to home Ruby and Lulu together because they were so bonded. So instead of getting one little friend for Oscar, we got two.

    They were 2.6 and 2.7 kilos when we adopted them and they are now just over 3, so they are not very big cats although Lulu looks a lot bigger with all that fluff.

    However, I know you want to see some pictures ...

    Lulu is a medium-haired kitty with an amazing tail


    She loves sinks


    and I get more photos of her than Ruby because she stays still for longer

    Aww, you got some really good pics of them, they're both gorgeous! Such a sweet expression on their faces, and beautiful coats.

    "Funny" to see how different length their coat is, since they are sisters. I take it either mom or dad was a longhaired one. Hope to see them here more frequently, and hear what they're up to.

    Hi Ruby and Luly, you sure are pretty girls. I'm so glad they now have a good home and that they were adopted together. Separating them would have been cruel so good for you. Thanks for posting pics and I look forward to more pics of them in the future.

    What, no greys? Just kidding! They are both absolutely gorgeous and you are to be commended for adopting these precious fursibbies. They would probably have been miserable without each other. Orangies are awesome! You are all very lucky.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    They are gorgeous! Yes, Pinot is a little miffed she hasn't made their acquaintance until now, I don't know if she's speaking to her UK Auntie at the moment.... She'll get over it...

    Lovely kitties, so glad they're together and with you! Congratulations!
