Ruby and Pandora
This week's featured felines are two fluffy fur siblings who love each other furry much!
Here are some photos of my 10-month-old Exotic Shorthair Pandora, and my 3-year-old, Ruby. They are out-of-control cuteness!
Ruby was rescued by Animal Haven shelter in New York, and I adopted her at 10-weeks! She was the last kitten left on a Friday night. She is adorable, has a smiley face, white mittens and socks, and a giant floofy tail!! She loves Maru the cat and is obsessed with cardboard boxes. You can follow her on Twitter at @IamRubythecat.
Pandora got caught snoozin'!
I lived on my own with Ruby for two years until my boyfriend and I got engaged last year, and moved in together. We decided to get another cat because Roo was lonely, and found Pandora through a breeder in Long Island. We picked her up on New Year's Day!
She is the friendliest kitten in the world, loves people, and loves to "talk"! She is very loud, and Ruby is very quiet (never meows). They love each other and are inseparable! We are crazy about them and Pandora was the perfect addition to our little family.
Special thanks to Aya for sharing her gorgeous girls with us this week! She also wanted to make sure that I gave a shout-out to Animal Haven in New York City for all of the amazing work they do!
