They love to sleep together in cold weather. They curl up in their little bed and start purring (Bubu starts snoring) and they keep each other warm.
Bubu gets petted while sleeping and is completely adorable. He is such a cuddly cat. Loves all the attention he can get.
Our four cats love to sleep, as all cats do. What we think sets them apart though, is their preference for sleeping together, particularly in colder weather. Here are a few photos. Aren’t they adorable?
Warmer, sunny weather is finally here and our medieval cats can’t wait to spend time outside, lounging about in the garden or the yard, climbing trees, rooftops — all the fun things they love to do! Whereas before they begged to come inside and sleep, now they won’t even hear of it. They’re outside, romping about.
Here’s Sasha in a tree.
Here’s the tree that Sasha was climbing (it’s in the background).
Bubu looks over his domain (the garden).
Tira loves to relax just about anywhere. Here, she’s doing it in the garden.
Bubu loves to sit underneath our MINI.
Bubu loves to play with sticks. He wraps his huge, sharp claws around them and starts chewing them up. He’s going to grow into a big tabby, I can tell.
The wooden house you see in the background of this last photo is their home. I’ll have more on that in a future post.
It is a well-known fact that kittens (even larger ones) love to playfight. They tumble around and over each other all day long, jumping on each other, frolicking, squeaking, filling our hearts with joy. Bubu and Tira are no different. They’re siblings and they’ve been together since birth. What makes this playfighting extra special is their special relationship and their origins.
They were found with their mother in Bucharest on the streets and were taken into a vet’s office to be cared for and put up for adoption. They were small, malnourished and fearful of people. They spent the first four or five months of their life in the vet’s office, in a room at the back, in a cage, without seeing sunlight, without running outside, without their mother. Nobody wanted them. Looking at them now, few people could understand how such beautiful kittens could be left unadopted, living in a crate for months. We certainly couldn’t understand it.
When we saw them, we fell in love with them right away, and when we found out that the vet couldn’t afford to keep them any more, because no one wanted them, we decided to adopt them on the spot and brought them to our home in the medieval city of Medias, where they live on a beautiful estate and can roam freely wherever they like, inside or outside the house.
So you see, that’s what makes them and their playfighting so special. They’ve literally been together since birth and love each other very much. We loved seeing them blossom from the shy, scared little kittens they were when we adopted them into the beautiful, loving, emotionally well-rounded creatures they are now, and we are so glad that we could offer them the chance to become Medieval Cats!
Here we will write of the adventures of four wise cats — Sasha, Zuzu, Tira and Bubu — who live in the medieval city of Medias, in the heart of Transilvania, Romania.
