If you didn’t already know then these photographs will prove that Charley and Billie are sisters. I often find them in synchronised poses and so cannot resist taking shots. However, they’re not from the same litter, but half-sisters having the same father and born at different times. Even though they have their own unique characters, they do seem connected and Charley – the elder of the two – will treat Billie as her kitten, often bringing her home live birds and rodents. It is quite funny to watch Billie trailing Charley around the house and garden and I can almost hear Charley saying

Leave me alone, Billie. You’re cramping my style!

I’ve also started to encounter synchronisation between the cats and dog.


Take note of how both Charley and Lány’s front legs are crossed in sleep!
