Meowsday C.6

Meet the lovely Sarah from The Purr Diaries and her two cats:

What are your cat's name?:
Bosco who is 6 years old and Oliver who is almost 1

Why did you pick that name out?:
Bosco is named after a song called 'Hey Bosco' by my favourite Australian band Jebediah, and Oliver is named after a wonderful cat I had as a child who never came home one day :o(

Bosco: Bos, Bossy Boots, Boscorelli
Oliver: Ollie, Wally, Tiny, Pumpkin Pie

How you met:
Bosco was adopted at 6 weeks old from a friend of a friends whose cat had had kittens and desperately needed homes for them. And Oliver was rescued from the RSPCA last June. I try to support shelters and shelter cats as much as I can - I sell art in my Etsy store and donate proceeds to CatProtection Society and I volunteer at the RSPCA's Cat Legacy House.

Special characteristics (features that make them unique:striped tail, white paws, etc...):
Bosco and Oliver look quite similar which was unintentional! We were hoping to get a black or ginger kitten when adopting Oliver but he chose us so we didn't have a choice! They are both tabby and white - Bosco brown tabby and Oliver gray tabby. Two very special characteristics are that neither of them are normal sized cats! Bosco is very big (but not at all overweight!) at 7kgs and Oliver is tiny for his age at only 4kgs!

Adorable things they love to do (loves catnip, hides in dryer, etc...):
Bosco loves playing chase! It has been his thing since he was little! He also refuses to drink out of a cat bowl! Or any bowl for that matter. He will only ever drink out of a freshly poured glass! I also mix a little bit of water in with his wet food to make sure he always gets enough.
Oliver is still a kitten so is a bundle of fun! He loves catnip, loves the laser pointer (a little too much - he gets over excited so we have to limit it!) and sleeps in bed with me every night. He is also very vocal and follows me around the house. He is always in the same room I'm in.

And anything else you would like to include:
To hear more about my two boys come on over to The PurrDiaries! We also have a Facebook page! 
My cats are so inspiring to me so they are always the focus of my art. You can see Bosco and Oliver inspired art in my Etsy store and I also have a new Facebook page for that too  :o)

How cute are they? I know I will be visiting her Etsy real soon!
