Interviews With Cats: London Kitties Guinness and Pimms
Today's "Interviews With Cats" is all about Guinness and Pimms - two brothers catting it up in London. You may know them from a certain viral video featuring Guinness and a window washer outside their apartment...in any case you'll want to read on for a peek into their lives with mom Rina!
Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings:
Guinness: My name is Guinness. I'm 2 years old - born and bred in London. A true London cat! I have 3 sisters but I don't see them now.
Pimms: My name is Pimms. I'm still a baby; just 1 year old. I was born in Croydon.
Q: Is there a special story behind your name?
G: We have names based on popular alcoholic drinks in the UK & Ireland. I think that tells you enough about our mum.
Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?
G: It all started when I was 4 months old. A huge toy rope came down on the outside of my living room window. "What is this?" I thought - and then I was even more surprised: a big man came down on this rope and started making these pendulum swing-like movements with his hands. I was captivated.
I started copying his actions. But then he disappeared and I thought, "When will he be back?!" Luckily, he seems to come back about every ten weeks and we have become good friends!
P: This is really my brother's thing. I don't quite understand it yet. I am surprised at how excited my brother gets. I'm playing it cool. Just watching.

Q: What’s your favorite treat?
G: I'm like a true cat. I love fish, rather than meat. Especially dried tuna. Absolutely delish!
P: Just give me anything and I'll love it. And I'll still be hungry.
Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy:
G: Nothing. I'm a such a good boy.
P: I sometimes steal my brother's food & treats. Mum gets angry.
Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
G: When the humans go away, we stay at home. I hate it because I feel lonely.
P: I've yet to experience the humans away.
Q: Do you have a favorite pastime?
G & P: Mum time is the best. An afternoon nap on mum's lap. Perfection!
