Ruben The Cat

REMEMBERING LOVE & YOGA

This week in 2021 I wandered to Exwick and moved in with Ashton, Adam and their cat Timmy. 3 years later Ashton and Adam have become parents, Timmy and I remain cuddly, childless eunuchs.

Love, Ruben x πŸˆβ€β¬›

Gorgeous Ruben and Bryan of course you always put a smile on my face. Luv you both to bits. 🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸΎπŸΎβ€οΈβ€οΈ

How sweet Ruben. I’m glad you are still friends with Timmy and now he has a mini-human like you do at home to have new adventures with. This was a wonderful story of love and friendship. ❀️🐈‍⬛

Congratulations to your human friends Ruben! Now Timmy will have a mini-human in his life like you do!

Do you miss your wandering days, Ruben?

You popped in to try out our sofa on your way through Exwick that day, before I knew how famous your travels were! Glad you are staying more close to home these days.

My word young man how many more mini human πŸ’• hearts are you going to break πŸ’” and not just the mini humans, adults are forever having their hearts broken πŸ’” by you beautiful felines and 🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸˆ‍⬛,you have no idea just how much you work your magic on us and we fall for you time and time again and come back for more heartache ❀️, so please consider your humble human friends the next time you decide to wander off on your travels, please don't break any more hearts ❀️ because we all love you xxx 🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸˆ‍⬛❀️❀️❀️

Sir Rubes I do hope this taught you a lesson - humans hearts are liable to break very easily. Please make sure you go to YOUR home at night as you now have mini human of your own to look after as well as the adults. Pressure ???? What pressure ??? Lots of luv Ruben and Bryan 🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸΎπŸΎβ€οΈβ€οΈ

I bet you anything those pretty babies got a kitty of their own after your inspired visit!

Its great to have fun memories!

Oh Ruben, yes that was another broken heart in your wake! Thank goodness you’ve retired (mostly) since your humans got you your own little mini-human to play with

Ruben, you were a bugger then and, I suspect, you always will be a bugger 😼. But you're a cat, and that's what cats do (play up their humans, and cause them endless anxiety, I mean . . .)

Ruben you are a heartbreaker. I am glad you are staying with your designated bi-peds a bit more consistently now.

Oh Ruben! Such adventures !

Love and hugs to you Ruben you are a very handsome guy

lovely memories ruben xxxx

You heartbreaker

bless you Ruben you sure have been on some journeys leaving thousands broken hearted when you go home xxxxx

You’re a tease Ruben ❀️

I hope you are a reformed heartbreaker now that you have your own small girl to look after.

❀️🐈‍⬛

Oh Reuben! X

PILLOW TALK

Rumour has it that the uncle-human is looking for love. As a proponent of all forms of affection, I snuggled the uncle-human into a coma, then moved onto this lovely pillow.

Ruben... I have being doing some online archaeological digging.. I'll just leave this here....your eminence.

You're such an affectionate cat Ruben,. You did good.xx

You are a true love bug Ruben. Your uncle-human has passed out due to your awesome affection, so enjoy your pillow time. ❀️🐈‍⬛

Ruben you are so caring ❀

So caring and thoughtful aren’t you Ruben.

You look very cozy Ruben x

You both look comfortable Ruben love and hugs!

So sweet of you, Ruben!

You are so thoughtful Ruben ♥️x

I'd love to cuddle you if I saw you, I think you're a lovely pussycat. I love cuddling black pussycats, they're so sweet! All pussycats are sweet, but I particularly love black ones.

That’s lovely Ruben! You show them how it’s done!

Ever thoughtful and caring about us hoomans eh, Sir Rubes?

The curious parallel world that sprang into existence when cats discovered "plenty of fish"...

You are such a thoughtful and kind Kat, Ruben ! ♥️🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍⬛♥️

Good on you Ruben, keep spreading the love!

Oh Ruben you are just so thoughtful 😘

Such an innocent you are.

How sweet you are Ruben.

Oh Ruben you really do know how to turn on the charm and work your magic on everyone and then take advantage of it, who can blame you for snuggling up on a cold damp and miserable summer's day, make the most of it I say!!!!

Give him love Ruben!

Ruben. Being on your own can be lonely but my three cats help me.

cant beat a good snuggle ruben xxxx

Sharon Garner reminds me of little un xxx

So, two bunnies moved in. The humans have named them Zuki and Puki; Bryan and I call them Lunch and Dinner. Only joking! At the very least, it would be rude to eat someone you live with, and I don't think I could do it to the mini-human.

Fuzzy toys!

They’re very handsome bunnies Ruben! Now you and Bryan must not fiddle with the latch on their Run when no one is looking - and remember that the mini- human has enough love for two cats plus two bunnies! Besides you want her to be happy don’t you?

Dear Sir Rubes and Bryan. Your new friends look so cute. And you will certainly get ‘brownie’ points from your mini human for living side by side with them. Lots of luv Ruben and Bryan 🐈‍β¬›πŸˆ‍β¬›πŸΎπŸΎβ€οΈβ€οΈ

Hope the Mini Human enjoys her growing critter family! You and Bryan enjoy your new companions!! ♥️😊🐈‍β¬›πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸˆ‍⬛♥️

Well thats just rude! They may be additional fur family but you'll always be Top Cat, Sir Rubes.

Some more gorgeous friends for you Ruben πŸ’•

So adorable! Ruben can't wait to see you lying in there with the rabbits! You and Bryan have two new friends to play nice with!

Beautiful bunnies. I'm so pleased you can prevent yourself seeing lunch/dinner when you look at them.

I hope you will be good and look after those cute bunnies 🐰🐰Ruben.

I'm sure that your new ' friends " will keep you highly entertained and you just might learn a thing or two from them, but I think they are definitely off the menu after all you don't want to upset the mini hooman!!!πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡x

Aww they are cute love and hugs to all of you

Well they are handsome pair Evie will be busy Ruben, with you and Bryan and Zuki and Puki.

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!
