I love cats. I am a proud crazy cat lady, and I have no shame in admitting that. And cats are such pretty creatures as well. And here are two cats that definitely show the beauty of the feline. These cat siblings Xafi and Auri are Russian Blue cats. This cat breed is known for its brilliant green eyes and silvery grey coats. Naturally, these two gorgeous cats are the stars of any photos. While they’re elegant, they also have a silly side to them too. The bonded siblings regularly stick their tongues out either at the camera or each other.
Even though Xafi and Auri are sisters by blood, the two kitties are different ages. Xafi was born in 2016 in the spring, with Auri following later that fall. When the pair were younger, they were easier to tell apart, however, now that they’re grown it’s a little harder to tell them apart since they’re the same size. It has definitely been a bit of a challenge to their Instagram fans – although their human parents, Anneken and Tim, can always tell them apart. The two have subtle differences, with Anneken and Tim noting, “Auri has a rounder face, wider ears and darker fur. Xafi has a more angular face with slightly taller ears.”
Besides their physical differences, both cats have very distinct personalities. Xafi loves to cuddle and sit on laps, while Auri is nicknamed the “Klepto-Cat” because she likes to steal items and run away – in addition, she loves shredding toilet paper and “attack blankets and cat beds.”
