Pet’s are a huge part of our social media, we love to see what they’re up too, whether it’s for the cute factor or to laugh at the silly things they do.
You’ll never see mesmerizing emerald eyes quite like this feline duo on instagram, with the pair growing to an amazing 22k followers.
These are gorgeous “American Type” Russian Blue Cats, Xafi and Auri, who have beautiful silver fur, big green eyes and the best personalities.
Xafi is a year older than Auri but they look like they were born at the same time as they are nearly identical.
Their owners are UK-based Annaken and Tim and have worked out a way to tell them apart.
The couple explained:
“Auri has a rounder face, wider ears, and slightly darker fur. Xafi has a more angular face with slightly taller ears. Their “Meow” is also distinctly different as is the way they both move and act. Auri also looks a lot more muscular and toned even though they are exactly the same weight: 3.5kg”
Although they look similar, their personalities are worlds apart as Xafi is more affectionate compared to mischievous Auri is also called “Klepto-Cat” as she likes to steal anything in her sight.
Anneken, their owner, explained:
“Xafi is human-oriented where Auri is independent. Auri is athletic where Xafi is clumsy. Xafi is loudly demanding when wanting cuddles whereas Auri asks in a very gentle and quiet way to get a fuss. But both are just the most loving and sweet girls I’ve ever known”
“It took me quite a while to develop the skills to photograph cats. Capturing photos of the two together is very challenging. We use treats and toys to try and get them to pose and look into the camera. I do less and less of those types of photos now – I prefer capturing them in their natural environment now just doing their cat-things”
