Here’s another of the birthday cats who turned five years old yesterday. Remy was originally named Barney and is one of our very few ginger kittens.
Remy still loves going outside in his harness and lead – sometimes just for a wander around the house and garden, sometimes out for a walk around the neighbourhood. It’s not uncommon for passers-by to comment on how beautiful he is or how how unusual it is to see a man walking a cat. 🙂
He is such a lap cat – if either of us sit down in the lounge, especially with a blanket over the lap, he’s curling up in no time. We love it.
He always sleeps on the bed at night, usually by our legs – but during the colder months either of us may get a polite tap on the forehead during the night which means ‘I want to come under the blankets’. We lift them up by our head and in he comes!
He’ll signal it’s playtime by leading one of us to the closet where his toys are, and one his favourite is a simple ball of foil he can chase.
He greets us enthusiastically at the door whenever we come home, looking for cuddles.
Remy was an adorable kitten too, as you can see from the photo below.
