Pedro is a loving cat, he knows he is in charge, he struts his stuff and always has the first serving of food, the kittens look up to him - he is one top cat. In human form he would be Al Pacino. He runs the neighbourhood gangs and the cats wait for him at the end of our path to come to play. We have had Pedro since he was a tiny kitten, Nathan went to buy a chest of drawers one day and the seller put the cat into the deal. Pedros' mama died when he was born and he lived with 2 puppies so when he first saw Polly he was petrified but thankfully due to the amount of mirrors I have he quickly learnt that he was a cat. He comes into our room in the morning and flicks the blind to wake us up, he is very feisty and if you walk past him and don't say hello he will swipe you to remind you of his presence. He is always hungry, bourbons are his favourite and he will take one out of your hand if your not careful. Pedro the dude.
And last but I am sure will not be the last is Petal. Petal is wonderful. Loves attention, loves cuddles and loves food. Petal was a girl but is now a boy, again the name has stuck and I think he kinda likes it. He has absolutely no concept of personal space and if you are sat down he will be up in your face trying to kiss you and sit on your shoulders and rub himself against you. Petal is obsessed with Nathan, I mean obsessed. He will not leave him alone to the point that we actually have to put him out sometimes because it all gets a bit much. Nathan cannot watch tv or sit at the computer or eat his dinner, we have to shut the bedroom door at night because Petal is so persistent in his wooing. Petal will also eat anything and everything that is left lying around, salad, veg, chips, crisps, biscuits, curry, noodles ANYTHING.
He eats so fast that his teeth bang on the plates and I don't know how he doesn't choke, he talks none stop, really heart felt long mmmeeeeeeoooowwwwwws. You feel like you have to answer after all the effort that has gone into his sentence which he then will answer to with just as much enthusiasm. And it goes on. Petal as a human? I think I will go with Russell Brand.
