Give it a good scratch for me Ruben

Happy International Cat Day Ruben and Bryan.However I have been led to believe that every day is Cat Day xx

Go on, admit it Ruben, you're a true cat so it's the box it comes in you're really excited about not the scratching post 😻🐈‍⬛

" I desperately need another scratching post to ignore "

When there are multiple scratch posts but you like to scratch the stair carpet!

Or is this just cover story while plotting his ride to another exploration destination! πŸ˜‚

Oh i feel your frustration Ruben. How dare they keep an Icon waiting though! Enjoy it when it arrives. ❀

Has it arrived yet Ruben? 😺

'I can't wait, I can't wait, hurry, hurry'

He needs to hurry up and get it to you Ruben! Lol

I hope he didn't ring the bell and leg it before one of your hooms could get to the door 😻

What they made you wait, that will not do! Our boys have two but would rather scratch the gate and fence outside the rascals.

That is very exciting and you will also have a great box to use as well 😁

Neighbourhood watch 🐾🐈‍⬛

Have fun Ruben and Bryan! SO I guess Ruben are you are staying home a few days then!!!!😻😽

Can't get over all these photos of you - in your own home, rather than someone else's Ruben . . . 😹😹😹😹

Can't wait to see your new acquisition!😽♥️🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸˆ‍⬛♥️

Ruben out on paw patrol again, I bet the delivery driver is literally a whisker away! 😍🐈‍⬛ Xx

Perhaps your itch will be cured Ruben.

Hope the new scratching post isn't a bribe to keep you from straying. Enjoy your new pressie and make sure you share it with Bryan xx

Happy International Cat day to you stunning and gorgeous Ruben and all babies out there god bless hugs β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸˆπŸˆπŸˆπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Hurry driver before the sofa gets used instead! πŸ˜΅πŸ™€πŸ™€ xx

You must post pictures soon with your new furniture!

Dream scratching post? That'll be mum's new sofa arriving then...

Hurry please

Ruben The Cat

CAT-NANNY AND THE BLAZE OF SAINT CYRES

Yesterday afternoon around 4:30pm, a huge fire broke out on farmland near our home burning through 20 acres of wheat. Some concerned Rubenites feared for my safety knowing my penchant for 'getting involved'. Although the billowing smoke filled the skies over casa del Ruben, I was somewhat unaware as I was busy looking after the mini-human. She has become far more tolerable of late. Her grabbing is transitioning to stroking and she is able to operate gadgets that I can kill with my murder mittens.

Love, Ruben J. Cat, Esq. x πŸˆβ€β¬›

I usually come back at you with something witty. .. but oh jeeze that's way to cute.. a relationship being formed .. He's being so careful with her ... gorgeous boy Rubes.

When we raised our tiny humans we taught them the importance of being kind to their sister, Raptor. The youngest came home from school and cried saying that other children told him a cat could not be his sister. How wrong they were!

Ohhh Ruben you are so sweet and gentle with the little furless human πŸ–€β€

I'm not sure how old you are, Ruben, but it's great to see that you're still alert and interested - like a kitten, or Evie!

Always.. ALWAYS love your posts. Amazing little family... what a tolerant kitty and amazing how resilient cats are. Mini humans at heart.... We have two beautiful black cats born on my bed. My children we fortunate enough to experience their birth. My son in his first year of primary and daughter starting foundation.. I rang the school that day to say they will be in late... 2009... they are still with us... a little more grumpy and needy but, Jynx is my cat husband and Midnight my beautiful fickle Jynx sibling... My son is also called Reuben (spelt differently however the original reason I joined your group... for giggles).. who would have thought that even now I still enjoy and smile at such adventures πŸ˜€ Keep posting... love them and always brightens up my day!! From one cat/family lover to another.

Ah dear Ruben it’s lovely how you and baby human Evie are learning to play together. You are teaching her to be gentle with you so well and are being very patient. She is becoming cuter and cuter every day. By the way hope Bryan is well - haven’t seen him in a little while. Luv to you and Bryan and your humans. Thank goodness you were safe from the fire. !! ❀️❀️😺😺

Good job you were too preoccupied to notice the fire! You were far better off at home teaching your mini-human how to cooperate πŸ˜‰ Stay safe Ruben and Co! X

I am glad you were inside Ruben and all of you are ok and you and mini hooman are doing good together love and hugs to you

Aww poor Ruben he was so worried about all the smoke he called the fur brigade! πŸš’πŸˆ‍⬛ PS we miss you please visit Exeter again soon! 😁 Xx

Hi Ruben. You do have such good table manners - sorry to see Bryan didn’t join you. I always think there is something nice about eating outside, and now you have a big garden to explore in and get up to mischief, that’s if you are not too full to move. Your baby human is looking very content - take it you still doing your share of baby sitting. Luv to you and Bryan. ❀️❀️😺😺

Black Cats are splendid this is 14 year old Leo my Boy.

My Catsie definitely matters to me. He was indispensable and very magically empathetic when my husband died last year.

Marmite agrees with you Ruben 😻

Yes we do, says Harvey from San Antonio

Even us Black & White ones!! 🐾

My sweet Bubba and little Ruby dominating him.

Most definitely. This is my black cat 🐈‍⬛️ Darth Vader. Loves everything and everybody never meets stranger !!!! Most of all I love him to no end he's my furbaby!!!

Yes, they do. All cat lives matter

My Polly would have agreed completely,she would knock things over if you ignored her for too long. Xx

My little Monkey says 'Hi'.

Yes Ruben, they do and you are an amazing specimen of Kitty Blackness!🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸˆ‍⬛♥️♥️♥️

To right they do I've got a black cat he is so lovely x

my little girls black shes a beauty just like you Ruben and Bryan xxx

They definitely do 100%, beautiful creatures xx

The amount of ridiculously amazing black cats on here! In love 😍😍😍

We have 2 very beautiful black cats. Love a black cat.

Gorgeous.. My Cat is a Tabby…. He had a Wonderful ‘Girlfriend’ I called ‘Blackberry’… She used to come to the garden everyday to play, but haven’t seen her for agesπŸ₯². Miss this ‘Sweet’ , as does My Cat 🐈‍⬛ x

Lucky is his name

Hi I've always had black and white or all black cats love them funny cheeky cute pies cats πŸ˜˜πŸ˜€

They all matter BUT black cats are the "undercats" unfortunately. You wave the banner and make black cats extra attractive with all you do sharing your adventures, I hope people see your page and know how awesome mini house panthers are!!

Ruben, you have just reminded me of my dream lastnight. In it I looked out the window and counted at least 18 black cats in my garden... what DOES this mean I wonder???

Black cats are beautiful luv xxx

Most definitely. You and Bryan are a case in point. 100% gorgeous and a great advert for all black cats. Lots of luv to you and your humans including baby Evie. ❀️❀️😺😺

Have a good day adorable and gorgeous Ruben hugs πŸ’•πŸˆβ€οΈπŸ˜˜πŸ’–

This is the best thing I’ve ever seen!!!! Xxxx

Ruben: Exeter’s wandering cat

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 40 different addresses in Exeter since 2016. A children's home, hospital, 2 primary schools, 3 care homes, several private residents of all ages, colour and creed. I do not discriminate, I love everybody!
