Andrei and Alice were born feral and are from the same litter. They’ve always had a tight bond and look out for each other. It helped them survive being feral.
They still have that bond despite being pampered house pets.
A few other things we’ve noticed about them which may or may not be due to their life in the wild:
- They “bury” their uneaten food.
- They don’t mind water or getting wet very much. Andrei plays in water when given a chance.
- Andrei can’t figure out a water bowl. He slaps the water with his paws then sucks water off his toes.
- They have their own language consisting of combinations of normal cat vocalizations (chirps, peeps, meowing, etc). They only do this with each other and our other cats do not respond to it.
