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.

Oh, hello.

Oh, hello.

Pimms: My name is Pimms. I'm still a baby; just 1 year old. I was born in Croydon.

Oh, hello!

Oh, hello!

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. 

Clearly, mum likes to party!

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. 

The viral video that started it all....

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.

Gimme dat dried tuna!!!

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. 

MINE!!!

MINE!!!

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. 

At least we have each other...

At least we have each other...

Q: Do you have a favorite pastime?

G & P: Mum time is the best. An afternoon nap on mum's lap. Perfection!

This is not mum's lap but we suppose it'll do.
