Meet Chewy and Roux. We as humans know how special a sibling bond can be. For some of us, the sibling bond is by blood, but for others the bond is by choice. In Chewy and Roux’s case, they are brothers by choice. Both starting out in different places, they ended up in a home with two amazing parents who love and spoil them daily!
Chewy is a gray and white, 6 year old cat who absolutely loves attention. Chewy has been with his family since day one. Chewy’s parents had took in a pregnant mother cat, and within no time she had her litter of kittens. Chewy and all of his brothers and sister’s were so adorable, but his owners knew they could not keep all of them. They found the mother and all his brothers and sisters great homes with friends and family. But when it was time to part with Chewy, they just couldn’t do it. They became too attached to give him up. Roux, the orange three year old tabby, found his home a little different. Roux started his life out in a Petco in Indiana. One day, his soon to be owners had strolled through Petco just wanting to “look” at the kittens. But lets get real, well all know how that story ends, there is no such thing as “just look”. 45 min after locking eyes with Roux, they had signed papers and brought him to his new home.
Chewy is the smartest most mischievous little guy ever! Chewy knows what he wants and how to get it. He will sit for hours just staring and observing the world around him. For instance, on the weekends, his humans like to sleep in, however Chewy’s belly does not. When Chewy is hungry he will do whatever it takes to wake them up so he can be fed. He starts by attacking their feet, then will bite his Papa’s elbow, or his personal favorite is getting on the headboard and canon-ball dive onto them to wake them up. If you can’t tell by now, Chewy loves attention and food. He will do absolutely anything to get either of these things. If he has to knock something over, he will do it. If he has to get into things he’s not suppose to be in, he will do it! He wants attention from anyone and everyone. If you aren’t paying attention to him somehow, someway, he is not happy! He also loves his belly rubbed. He will plop over onto his side right in front of you just so he can get a belly rub.
Roux on the other hand is very shy and not very trusting of most people. However he loves his brother and owners, and whole heartedly trusts the three of them. He is especially attached to his mom the most though. When he’s in trouble or when unfamiliar people come along, he will hide behind her. He is definitely a 1-2 person cat, but his family accepts it and love him to bits. Roux absolutely loves to cuddle, but his all time favorite thing in the world is to go for walks. His humans will put on his harness and leash, and will take him for walks in their backyard. While exploring the back yard, he will prance around and bite at all the grass.
With both cats having two completely different personalities, who would have ever thought they would be so close. Chewy and Roux are attached at the hip. The love they have for each other has no boundaries. They are not brothers by blood, but they sure act like they’ve known each other all their lives. During the winter season, you will always find Chewy and Roux cuddled up together in some of the cutest spots.
Chewy and Roux have a Petzi Treat Cam and absolutely love it! Chewy loves to stick his paw where the treats are dispensed and try to paw out more. Their owners also love it because they both have a long commute every morning and night, and they love the ability to see their babies and make sure the are okay.
Chewy and Roux humans have an unconditional love for them. When asked about what they loved most about being a pet parent, this was their response,”They are not only my babies they are our family. Words cannot describe the happiness and love that they bring into our home. I love sharing my cats with the world. They truly are a joy in our lives. I’m so blessed to have found the most perfect “sons”! They have really taught me to love the little things in life and that at the end of the day you come home to those that unconditionally love you the most! I live for my husband and for my fur-babies”. Chewy and Roux have such great humans that truly love them.
