Oh Noes! Now my suitcase is going to be overweight... #Caturday #MastoCats #FediCats #JuliaKitten

Modern #cats have evolved their hearing to be hyper #kibble, #can-opener and #food-cupboard-door-opening sensitive…at least that is what the crack team of #JuliaKitten and #KittenJacques caretakers has observed.

Our cat #JuliaKitten is part shark.

She circles my office chair for five min before coming in for the kill… er, to climb onto my arm and 'make biscuits.'

Our #JuliaKitten is on an eat to rule campaign... Which means she eats at her own leisurely pace. #KittenJacques would happily hoover up what she leaves behind, but he doesn't need the extra calories.

Brown torbie cat looks to her left.

#KittenJacques and #JuliaKitten have never been that interested in royalty. But birds, now THAT'S INTERESTING!! πŸ€”

What? A little of #JuliaKitten's #Cattitude this fine #Caturday

Brown torbie stares down the camera.

Five years ago today @ottaross brought home our #JuliaKitten. She stole our hearts THEN and continues to do so NOW. #CatsOfMastodon #MastoCats #FediCats #Cats #Kittens

Brown torby kitten sleeps leaning up against a human on a dark grey couch. She has her paws crossed over her belly.

@KissAnne @That_One_Guy this is he same for our #JuliaKitten and #KittenJacques. She wants her own space and he just wants to groom her, I think. They are #frenemies now but used to sleep together as kittens.

A late morning snack. I sprout and plant "wheat berries" to give the cats a wheat-grass treat regularly. They seem to enjoy it.

Oats are probably more common as cat grass, but they're impossible to buy (cheaply) in less than 20kg bags. Wheat berries from the bulk-food shop are very cheap – $1 worth will last a year for cat purposes.

Cats are digesting and saving energy for their post-sundown tear around the house.

Our cat Julia rarely tolerates Jacques around her anymore, but the back door is the neutral zone where they'll press in together to watch the wildlife. Today it's birds.

They were snuggly as adolescents, but she was here first by a few weeks, and she seemed to resent him eventually getting bigger than her.

A beige cat and a torbie cat sit together at a glass door, with their back ends together, watching urban wildlife. Their tails switch back and forth occasionally entangling.

#JuliaKitten on this fine #Caturday after #StPatricksDay. She partied moderately which is why she looks so great this morning. #MastoCats #CatsOfMastododon

Brown torbie facing camera, lying with her body behind her and her right arm stretched out on a light beige carpet.

Our ball-o-fur Julia tries to get some shut-eye in a bright room.

#JuliaKitten's vibe this #Caturday is distain for hoomans, but she wishes all #CatsOfMastododon a lovely day.

Closeup of brown Torbie cat looking past the camera, with a look of distain... She is curled up and  leaning against a checked pillow on a couch. Cat lovers will recognize it as the "get lost" look.

Happy #Monday! #JuliaKitten wishes all her fellow #CatsOfMastododon (and hoomans) a pleasant day and a successful week. #MastoCats #MastocatMonday

This is the position that we in this house call "cat pants" as demonstrated by #JuliaKitten. If we were in the UK we'd have to call it "cat trousers" I guess. :)

During today's #breadmaking our cat #JuliaKitten came by for a visit. I crouched down to say hi and she moved into lap position hoping for a long snuggly stay.
That was a little beyond what my knees would offer, but I could hang out for a little while with her anyway.

Nice coincidence that it's #Caturday and it's also #JuliaKitten's fifth birthday. Here she is then, and now.

@JenXer she is lovely! #JuliaKitten chooses the laser pointer over food. I feel your pain. #CatsOfMastododon #purrsday #cats

Meanwhile, #JuliaKitten exchanges heat from my lap and contemplates the cat grass. #CatsOfMastododon #cats #MastoCats

#JuliaKitten is quite particular about when you can pet her. She'll let you stroke her fur, but has to wash vigorously afterwards. Not sure what that says about her cat staff. #MastoCats #CatsOfMastodon #Caturday

#JuliaKitten + #KittenJacques are two days in to their resolution to #loaf around and #snooze more. Pretty successful so far.

On this, the last #Caturday of 2022 #KittenJacques and #JuliaKitten send their sincerest wishes for a very special 2023. #MastoCats #CatsOfMastodon

@stux so very cute. Our #cats #JuliaKitten and #KittenJacques are fascinated by fire. Not sure if that's a good thing.πŸ€”

I’ve got my β€œcat pants” on this afternoon, which I think are called β€œcat slacks” in Britain. #JuliaKitten #MastoCats #Caturday

Looked at my β€œdevice” downloads folder (and yes, I envy you if you organize all your pics right away or at all), and I have what some would call β€œan inordinate number” of cat pics. As far as I’m concerned, you can’t have too many #catpics #CatsOfMastodon #JuliaKitten #KittenJacques

@samcox08 that's easy – here's our #JuliaKitten when she was just starting to stretch out a bit, tired after vigorous play…

It would be remiss of me not to share #JuliaKitten + #KittenJacques’ best wishes for an excellent #Caturday

You can tell that Julia was the first, and Jacques came after.

While she accepted him early on when they were both kittens, she had a month with us before he arrived, and still sees him as an interloper three (?) years later.

Anyway, that concludes our cat-personalities overview.

#catpics available of both - click hashtags: #Juliakitten or #kittenJacques.

Happy #caturday from #KittenJacques + #JuliaKitten who along with their human servants stand with #Ukraine

Thursday. Cat on the desk snoozing (#kittenJacques).

The other cat (#JuliaKitten) came flying up to climb into my arms as she has a habit of doing in the mornings.

She was just about to take position, when she noticed her nemesis on the desk. She froze for five seconds unsure what to do. Then she turned around and left, and went downstairs.

Happy #Caturday. #JuliaKitten turned 4 yesterday and she doesn’t look a day over 3 🐱 #Mastocats
