Sunday Selfie: Baby Kitten Oreo

Oreo was trying to be cheeky and get out of doing a Sunday Selfie introduction two weeks in a row! Well, that just isn’t acceptable. So, we persevered and with a little bit of trickery we were successful.

Oreo is a shy little thing. She came to us with her sister Peaches who is so much more outgoing and becoming more and more a chatty kitty! Oreo will prefer to hide when we have strangers coming over and took a while to warm up to us. When she came to us she was so fluffy but you could still feel her bones under her skin – she was SO skinny.

Oreo was 1 kitten in a small litter of 3. One of her sisters was a bit of a fatty and was 800grams (Oreo and Peaches were less than half that!). So when it came time for them to choose foster homes they had to be split up (sadly). This way, we are sure that Oreo (and Peaches) both get plenty of food and don’t have to fight for it.

Slowly but surely, Oreo is gaining weight and confidence. She has her favourite treats (cooked chicken) and even enjoys lactose free yoghurt when we give it to her.

Today’s selfie was easy to take once we wore her out and got her to fall asleep.

What do you think – was it sneaky or brilliant?

Today we are focusing on one half of our newest dynamic duo. We have Peaches and Oreo. Today, Oreo did not want to participate. Oreo just wanted to snuggle or hide.

Peaches on the other hand was all about the camera. She knows which is her best side (every side!) and plays to it.

Some of the things we LOVE about her is she is just so friendly. From the very beginning she would purr so loudly whenever you picked her up (and she still does!).

She’s fast and will be the first one on your lap when you sit down. She knows where the prime real estate is in this house. Now that it’s also getting cooler in the Southern Hemisphere she loves to snuggle with dad – he’s so much warmer.

So today was especially difficult to pick just one selfie… so we are a going to bombard you with many!

Meet the Melbourne feline in the running to be crowned the world’s longest cat

Meet the Melbourne feline in the running to be crowned the world’s longest cat

 


First it was fame on Instagram, now Guinness World Records is calling – but to placid Melbourne house cat Omar, it’s all just another day in the office. Three-year-old maine coon Omar is reportedly in the running to become the longest cat in the world – a record currently held by a maine coon from the UK named Ludo who was measured at 118.33cm in 2015.

Owner Stephy Hirst, from Croydon in Melbourne, told the Maroondah Leader she started an Instagram account for her giant cat a couple of weeks ago and before long he had been featured on Cats of Instagram. And once you’ve been on Cats of Instagram which has more than 8 million followers, it appears the sky is the limit. Ms Hirst said she was contacted by Guinness World Records who said Omar could be the longest cat in the world. She has sent his measurements in for verification. At 120cm long and weighing 14kg, he’s already about three times the size of the average cat.

 

“(Omar) was tiny when we got him but then he just started growing and was 10kg at one year old,” Ms Hirst said. “We thought he might be (the longest cat in the world) but we hadn’t done anything about it because he might not be fully grown yet.” Omar eats a diet of kibble and raw kangaroo meat and enjoys naps on the couch or trampoline. He also lives with two Shetland Sheepdogs Penny and Rafi who he has long outgrown. The maine coon is one of the largest and oldest natural breeds of domestic cat in the world.

 

How big is your pet?
