Kozy Kitten of the Day for May 24th


Name: Rudolph
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Domestic Shorthair, Cornish Rex
Home: Surrey, United Kingdom
Here is a picture of one of my rescue kittens, Rudolf. He is a Domestic Shorthair Cornish Rex cross, and along with his brother is full of mischief, as you can see when I snapped him in the top of my apple tree. I’m actually standing on a step ladder to take the photo. Both he and his brother Dasher are adorable little monkeys. Nothing is safe or sacred when they go on the rampage. They are all but inseparable and tend to sleep in a tangled heap together. It is so satisfying to have taken them from the little concrete ‘cell’ at the rescue centre.

Rudolf is in the foreground of the picture with his brother. His fur was a bit strange at first probably because of the Cornish Rex genes – they usually have curly fur. He looked like a Gremlin, but now his fur has settled down to a normal medium length texture. He is very affectionate, if I bend down and tap my knees he takes a running jump up for a cuddle.

His favourite game is a choice between chasing the laser pointer or sitting on my lap trying to eat my fingers! He also loves to chase flies around the house, and he doesn’t care what he knocks over to get them! He is also very clever, if I leave the food cupboard open he picks up the packet of cat treats and runs off with them, he also loves to play with the water from the tap in the kitchen sink. I love him very much!
