I've had some enquiries about the small black and white tornado that is Ruby the kitten - so I thought I'd bring you up to date.
We don't know exactly when Ruby was born, seeing as she was found as a stray, so we can only guesstimate but as it's likely she was born late September 2013, she's not coming up to 6 months old. And she's a like a firework to have around - always fizzing with energy, running and pouncing on anything that moves. She loves jumping on my toes, giving them tiny bites or attacking them with claws that are like needles - and sometimes she tries to climb up my legs from behind.
So it's been a great relief to be able to open the door and let her out into the garden to run around, chase Charlie - or be chased by him - and run off some of that excess energy. He's specially enjoyed that this week as he has had his paw ripped in a fight - or on a nail - and has been limping rather badly. Luckily a trip to the vet and the antibiotics have a done the trick and he's been pouncing on her- leaping out of the shrubbery and chasing her around for hours.
But Ruby has decided that she doesn't need him since she discovered trees. She is quite a climber and just
loves to scramble up as high as she can go. At the moment she's only trying out the bushes - the magnolia in this case - but she has ambitions for the apple trees as soon as she gets her confidence.
She is also growing like crazy - still very slim and sleek but with long legs that make her look surprisingly tall.
I've included a photo of her next to Charlie so that you can see the comparison in size - but of course he has a much longer and thicker coat so he looks huge next to her.
