Fenn and Sudo. (Yes. I am nerd and Sudo is “my” kitty.)

      They are joined at the hip, figuratively. Everything that one does, the other has to do. Eating, sleeping, playing… everything. (Almost everything… They quickly learned that the litter box is one cat at a time only.)

      It’s almost like owning just one cat, just with double the poo.

        I genuinely believe a second cat is the greatest thing you can have for a cat (as long as they get along good). If you have the space I’d get a second box in the future.

          Depends on the cat. Surely true for a bonded pair like this, but I had one cat who for the remaining ~10 years of her life never got past the grudging acceptance stage when we adopted a second, then a third. That second cat reacted similarly when another cat joined the household years later.

        I have frequently complained that the cat doesn’t do anything useful except generate poo, and what can I do with that?

        My demands to get a job are met with disdain.

      We adopted a brother and sister cat and it’s well worth it in my opinion, they keep each other entertained. They also love each other more than I thought was possible lol.

    That’s how they get you, these… cats. Devils more like it. It’s all purring and mewing, and then Bam! one of them hits you with a head nudge. By then, it’s all over. Soon it’s the expensive food, and the water filters, and the fancy kitty litter. Before you know it, they are asking if their brother can crash on the couch. You know, just a for a few weeks. He’s got an idea, and it’s gonna be huge, like Facebook huge, but he just needs a little bit to get him off the ground. A year later you are laying in bed at 4 AM looking back on the choices you’ve made, wondering how it ever got to this point, and you feel a sharp pain in your gut. It’s one of those furry devils come to ask for more food, or to warn you about the spider it thinks it saw in the hallway, or to tell you that the vase above the TV is haunted. It doesn’t matter. You love them, anyway. You’re all theirs now. Under their spell. They call it love, but it’s spelled t-o-x-o-p-l-a-s-m-o-s-i-s.

    i recently also adopted a bonded pair and it’s such a good idea. the scaredy cat of the two settled in really fast since he’d be hiding and then see his niece walking around getting pet and purring (not being attacked by the terrible humans who stuck him in a box just the other day) and he’d poke his head out.

    plus, you’re always getting to walk into a room a find them cuddling adorably. it’s great!

    So damn cute I immediately sent this pic to my partner and ran into the other room to tell her to check her phone.

      Very close! The main difference is in thier “socks” or “mittens”. Sudo has the smaller socks, Fenn has the “knee highs”.

      Fenn has the massive appetite as well, so just shaking the food back is enough to identify him.

    Would Sudo do anything you said if you say his name first?

    Imagine:

    Sudo fetch

    Sudo close the door

    Sudo rm -rf /*

    Sudo poop in the toilet

      Fenn still likes to suckle when he is going to sleep… Mainly on his brother. After that, Sudo is usually drenched in slobber so both meanings work. :)
