When it comes to food, again they are quite different. Simba will eat just about anything, but not miss finickity pants. Yes I know, human food is for humans and cat food is for cats, but just occasionally we offer a tiny treat, (hmm could this be why Libby is so "bonny"?). Anyway some things Libby will have
, fresh meat as long as it doesn't have any fat and is cut into dainty pieces, some fresh fish but not all and don't even think about anything like cream. Simba begs every morning for a tiny spoon of yoghurt, Miss Libby just raises her tail and turns away in disgust. Simba will take on anything as this picture shows.
Finally there is the morning ritual. Simba waits until he hears me speak and then he leaps onto the bed, comes up onto my pillow, nudges me in the chin, (this is a very "aby" habit - they love being head to head with you), and snuggles under my arm turning upside down and stretching out in great pleasure. Sadly Miss Libby generally arrives at about 4am and she isn't interested in whether I'm awake or not. She has the world's loudest purr and she creeps her way up to my face to plant a wet cat kiss on my cheek. I think her expectation is, yet again, that I should leap out of bed and feed her. I usually gently push her away from my face and she curls up in the crook of my legs, purrs loudly for another ten minutes or so and then we both go back to sleep. I'm sure she goes to sleep thinking, "I'll have this human well trained soon."
As these stories unfold you'll learn more of their different personalities. Why we call Miss Libby the bag cat and who loves to play and which one is the water cat. Stay tuned.
