Meet Fancy and Benny aka The Tardis Toms

Fancy (tabby and white) and Benny (black) are called The Talons of Weng Chai Ang and also @The_Tardis_Toms. They live with @MrsOblivious.

You travel in time. Sometimes you’re young, sometimes you’re old(er). Did you always live with your family, or were you a rescue?

 We have always lived with our family, since we were six weeks old, a little young but we did ok, and got thoroughly spoilt.  We came from a farm.  NOTE: farm cats are big hunters.

Explain your Time Traveling and the idea behind Weng Chai Ang.

We travel with Dr Who, a Time Lord from Gallifrey, keeping the Earth safe from aliens.  The Talons of Weng-Chiang is a Dr Who episode when we travel to Victorian London.  It's got a giant rat in it, which particularly appealed to us.

How do you get along with each other?

We used to quite happily snuggle up together but this has evolved to *tolerance*.  Fancy is in charge, but he is easy going so puts up with a lot before he feels the need to assert authority.  He is firm but fair.

Are you snugglers or an indiffricats?

Fancy is definitely a snuggler, Benny likes to be close to Mrs O, but is not a lap cat.

What is your favorite form of mischief?

Benny: Scratching the sofa or licking cheese, Fancy likes to climb the curtains (breaking the hooks), knocking food out of the cupboard or sitting on Mrs O's hair when she is asleep.

Do you have a mischief incident that is still talked about with your family?

Benny brought in a pigeon when the family went away, ate it in the bathroom leaving feathers EVERYWHERE!  Fancy also knocked a candle holder and vase out of the bathroom window cracking the basin, bath and tiles.  Needed new bathroom suite.  Fancy also got a joint of beef and some bacon out of the fridge when the door wasn't properly closed, unfortunately (for him) Mrs O caught him in the act before he could start eating it.

Tell me about an Awww moment that made your mom melt.

Basically most of the time!  Fancy sliding down the banister was particularly cute. Fancy also sat in a pot in the garden once that had a Canna in.  The leaves went round his head and his face looked like the centre of a sunflower.  She so wished she had the camera, and Fancy LOVES posing.  Also when we first went out Benny ran up to her and put his paws up on her leg and meowed in excitement.  He would run in to Mr O and jump on his chest and rub all round his face, they called it him doing his Mr Snuffleupagis.

 What are your favorite foods and toys?

Benny likes *raw meat* such as birds and mice, although both  he and Fancy are also v particular to any fish Mrs O may be having for tea, and both have a weakness for prawns.  Benny prefers dry food, if pushed his favourite pouch food is Felix.  ALL food is Fancy's favourite. 

We have some Catnip pillows from St Kitts Herbery (check their website) in Cornwall.  They are REALLY strong and we get really nipped out big time!  Fancy also has a bed called The Tower of Power.  The bed sometimes leans and it becomes The Leaning Tower of Fancy.  Also we have Da Bird fishing rod with feathers.  We like chasing it but Benny finds the concept of play confusing, and usually just ends up running round the garden like a headless pigeon (sorry, we ate that, we mean chicken).

What is your birth dates, or your Gotcha Day dates?

Our birthday is 6 April 2008
When did you join Twitter and what clubs do you belong to?

Think it was June or July 2011, we are #wlf and proud.  Benny is married to Boots, sister of @bapistan  and Fancy has a girlfriend, Kate at @moon_cat
