Great boy Ruben. You are a wonderful boy

That's a cat with real presence.

You are absolutely rocking being a day care kitty Ruben. Keep up the good work! 🐈‍⬛❀️

News has travelled about the great work you do with Evie! Now additional small hoomans want to bask in your pawsomeness and learn from you

Hey Sir Ruben, wow you always amaze me from your wanderlust to babysitter. What a super cat you are. Looks like you are doing an awesome job! Mimi-hoomans looking very happy. 😽😻 Stay safe and happy Ruben and family. Love from across the pond.

Oh Ruben - so today you have not one but two mini-humans to look after! You’ve SO got this! In retirement the role of Playcentre Supervisor is perfect for you.

Hey Ruben two mini humans to babysit what a star you are.

Well look at you care kitty lots of patience needed enjoy xx

You are amazing Ruben lovely to see you 😍 ❀

No end to your talents Ruben you have looked after on your travels uni students, care home residents and people at Wonford hospital! Now specialising in child daycare. You are one amazing cat!!😻😻

Oh Ruben, I don't know who is having the most fun, you look so content with those two mini humans and they look quite happy as well, mind you I notice you are firmly positioned in the middle of them, is this in order to act as mediator just in case?? I must say that the role really suits you xxx🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸ˜½πŸ˜½πŸ˜½

Oh Ruben, you are so good at this. Well Done x

Happy Valentines Day @followers! Today is the day many human relationships find themselves tested.

During my wander years I stumbled upon many households where a man-human, and occasional lady-human have fallen short on this day that has become a significant cultural, religious and commercial celebration of love for you bipeds. We cats however, no better than to set ourselves up for such silliness and folly. Instead, we celebrate love everyday with our cuddles, purrs and occasional 'gift' in the form of a dead (but not always) animal.

You're welcome,

Love Ruben x πŸˆβ€β¬›πŸ’˜

So very true Ruben. In Finland this day is known ad Friendship day. And friendship is also a kind of love. And is so much more including than Valentines day. As Joan Armatrading sings: There is more than one kind of love.

Happy Valentine’s Day Ruben Bryan , and family. xx

Happy Valentine’s πŸ’Œ Day!

Enjoy your day sweetie, lots of love.

Happy Valentines Day Bryan & Ruben. Hope you get lots of cuddles and treats 🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸΎπŸΎβ€οΈβ€οΈ

Happy Valentines Day to you all ❀

We have all the love we need here. Dusty and I agree, why wait until 1 day of the year to tell someone you love them?

Happy Valentine's Day all!

Love and hugs to all of you have a nice Valentine's Day!

“Hi Folks - I’m babysitting the mini human while the big humans get our teas ready. Hope they don’t mix them up!”

Good to see you Ruben. My son used to play with his hair when he was tired - like Evie is doing. Good day to be indoors - the weather is awful and so cold. I am sure snuggles could be on the cards. Luv to you Ruben and Bryan ❀️❀️🐾🐾🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍⬛

Hello Sir Ruben and family. Little Evie is growing so fast. She precious.

It's not the best disguise but as a robe I feel a lovely deep red would suit you best whilst also looking appropriately regal

Of course, handsome! 😍

Ahh Ruben The Cat 🐈‍⬛ channeling your inner Dougal viva Magic Roundabout X

Yes you do Sir Rubes, yes you do! 🫑 🐾🐾xx

You sure do Ruben!

Definitely!

Most certainly!

Looking well in your robe dear Ruben. Makes you look like Royalty. As some one says it should be purple. xxx

Sharon Garner 😹😹😹xxx

Tbh I think it would suit you better with a touch of ermine around the colour and possible a deep purple

It's OK Ruben - it's just your humans trying to show you some love . . . Grin and bear it - for their sakes 😹😹😹

Most definitely Ruben

You don't need any help to look gorgeous Ruben

Of course!

Are you hiding from mini human? Good job! She will never suspect!

I’m guessing this was placed on you by the mini human? In which case, I’d just put up with it until she goes to bed.

Absolutely Ruben.🐈🐾🐾❀

You look cute Ruben 😍

Lovely to see Ruben as adorable as always lovely photo of you you look.so handsome in your robe ❀

Keeping you warm

You absolutely do and wasn’t it nice your humans gave you a blankie. I bet you’re warm now. ❀️🐈‍⬛

you look very cute ruben xxxx

It looks like a napkin draped over you, Sir Rubes.

Wandering Ruben

If you live in Exeter there’s a fairly good chance that at some point, I will follow you home and move in with you. I’m an extremely friendly cat that despite appearances has a loving home. Every now and again I get itchy feet and wander off on adventures. I have been collected from over 100 different addresses in Exeter since 2016. A children's home, 2 hospitals, 2 primary schools, 3 care homes, several private residents of all ages, colour and creed. I do not discriminate, I love everybody!
