Life continues to be fun here at „Hotel Cat“! They are growing like weeds. Benny is close to 5 kg now. Leoni seems to stay tiny kitty and weighs about 3.8 kg, but that may change. British Shorthairs apparently grow until they are 3 yrs old I’ve been reading. That should be interesting to watch.
We have discovered Benny to be a really scared fellow when it comes to strangers in the house. Sometimes we go outdoors together – being carried, of course – but he is not fond of the noises and always happy to be back in the safety of the house.
On the other hand, Leoni is not disturbed by strangers. She just continues to be herself and just like Stella-The-Cat used to do it she will be around when someone is in the house. She could miss out on something. That little girl is quite a busy one if I may say so. Benny tends to rest much more and Leoni is his personal fitness trainer.
More and more their characters are becoming more evident. Benny is the cuddler while Leoni doesn’t need too much body contact. She tolerates it though when we need to cuddle her. 🙂 Boy, can she „talk“ though. Looking for her brother can be quite the noisy undertaking. Benny likes to talk as well, but not as noisy as his sister.
Here are some pictures of the last few weeks of our little Brits.
