Charlie and Tom have been with us more than a year now and they are still alive, which for us is something of a record in cat husbandry!
The day I decided to surprise my family by bringing home two half dead and seriously infected cats was December 21st, 2012. As you know, when we got them we were told it was brother and sister and I think being treated like a girl in his formative weeks has had a long lasting effect on Tom, or is it Tomette?
His fur is much finer and smoother than Charlie’s, he’s weaker with less muscle but weighs roughly the same as Charlie thanks to his pinky-pinky wobbling belly, has a squeakier voice, is less adventurous, more emotional and he likes to keep warm by sleeping on top of the Yamaha Aventage which gives off just the right amount of heat to keep a cat warm!
It has been either side of -10C for a while now, currently -12C, and these differences between the cats are noticeable.
