What silly names for cats! I much prefer their usual names Skall and Quin. Well these two are brother and sister, they came as a set, like Bubbles and Sway but younger. My people say they are the most ‘aloof’ (whatever that means) because they have had a good life from a very young age. Skall is the silver Tabby and Quin is the white odd eyed cat. They are both 9 years old now, and don’t really show their age much.
These two like me the least! I can understand with Quin, she is partially blind so perhaps a bigger happy barking doggy would be scary. Skall on the other hand is the monster cat. He is the ‘top dog’ of the house. A mean lean fighting machine, he has been known to escape the house, walk across the road, find their cat and beat it up in it’s own garden, to return happily and go to sleep in his basket.
He sits on top of the kitchen cabinets and stares at you. It is a little bit creepy if I am honest. Them big golden eyes all scary and big. He is a fussy eater too! I love food ALL the time, but he decides that one day he doesn’t want chicken and wont eat his food. He wants fish instead, and he wont eat anything till you get him that fish. I think that is a little rude, the people are nice giving us tasty things, we should love them for it. Not turn our little posh noses up and walk away.
Quin likes to sit in one of them snood thing and hiss at anything that goes past (especially me).
(She also looks a bit like a demon in some photo’s)
I like Bubbles better he is nicer to me.

These were the only two cats we have had from kittens and by gum you can tell they aren’t rescues. They are the King and Queen of our own little house, and they do let you know. Skall has more than once got out of the house and beat up neighbors cats, so we made the decision to make them all house cats who go out on a lead in the garden every now and then.
Quin … well she is just Quin. Loves a bum scratch and a chin tickle, and is never frightened of fireworks or lightening. She likes to play with the shapes and shadows whilst sitting in the window. It must be to do with the fact she can’t hear the noises properly, seeing as everyone else is scared.
Quin and Skall we love you even if you seem to just about tolerate us.
