Tolstoy & Friends

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Over Christmas, Tolstoy and our really scared girl Tippy made some moves towards friendship - they were enjoying a spell with daughter while she studied for exams. Here's the evidence


Then, today as the weather was so cold and scary he decided the best place to be was snuggling with his sister. Either on the top of the gas fire





or snuggled in the underneath portion of their basket





An exhausting day was had by all!

WOW!!!! Those are some gorgeous cats!!!! What breed are they?

(I`m so clueless when it comes to purebred cats...)

Bonding over spelling... seems as good a reason as any!!!

Tippy (our black and white tuxedo kitty) is a beautiful, if slightly scatty, DSH rescue kitty. She's a lot older than Tolstoy, so it's lovely that she's taken to him, she's scared of everything else in life

Lily and Tolstoy are Singapuras. They are half-brother and sister (same Dad, different Mums).

The kitties thank you for your lovely comment

Don't they look comfy! Most of the time they snuggle nicely together, but sometimes, Lily just wants the entire downstairs of their bed to herself and boots him out. The whole thing rocks wildly for a second while she makes her point and then Tolstoy usually beats a retreat and heads for the top of the fire

But....as with the basket they have their moments on there too. Sometimes there is a full scale battle for supremacy going on up there - Tolstoy usually wins that one because he keeps biting her back leg and then he'll get his paw behind her and literally hook her off the fire onto the floor. Children!

When they are quiet together they're adorable. When they're on a bushy-tailed run through the house playing together they can be pretty scary . It doesn't matter whether you're in the way, any person is just a piece of furniture to be jumped over as part of the chase!

Its so ODD that Singapore doesn't have Singapura breeders (or at least they're not commonly known of) The last time I heard, they had to ship three over from overseas for exhibition at The Singapore Zoo But from what I've heard, they ARE very nice cats to have... Tolstoy and Lily look like two sweet luvbugs

It's a winner.

They are - these are the first snuggle kitties we've ever had and it's beautiful to see.

They really are something else - but then I guess your familiar with many of the traits having Bengals. Boundless energy and tons of mischief

It is isn't it! They are lovely cats to have, mischievous, energetic but very lovable. Just don't get too attached to ornaments, we've learned the hard way. Any remaining ornaments are not held down with blu-tack.

Lucky us, we get that chance every single night. We are usually four in a row because the two kitties occupy the middle three quarters of the bed snuggling up together like this.

You're so right Stephanie - it's amazing that Tippy has found it possible to trust another kitty. Slowly and surely does it! Tolly still goes up and gives her the odd bop on the head though if he's feeling rascalish, but she doesn't seem to mind.

Thank you for enjoying Lily and Tolly's awwwwww moments too - they are such a sweet pair.
