As a cat enthusiast, I consider myself lucky to have met and interacted with numerous felines. Among the various breeds, I found the Cornish Rex particularly intriguing and distinct. These cats possess a dainty physique, a narrow face, and endearing bat-like ears that instantly draw one’s affection. The Cornish Rex breed is known for its affectionate, playful, and amiable disposition. With their slim body, unusually large ears, graceful frame, and slender tail, they resemble ballerinas. They maintain their kitten-like characteristics throughout most of their lives, making them ideal pets for homes where they receive plenty of attention and care. Pixel and Sophie, my beloved feline pets, are fortunate to be living in such a nurturing environment where they receive ample love and attention both at home and online.
Meet Pixel and Sophie, the adorable cat duo from Green Bay, Wisconsin that are taking the internet by storm. With their striking contrasting fur colors of black and white, these two feline friends have captured the hearts of many social media users with their charming and photogenic appearances. Their playful and silly behavior is a true testament to their breed as Cornish Rex cats. Trust us when we say that once you get to know Pixel and Sophie, you’ll find them irresistibly cute and entertaining.
Can you tell me about the inspiration behind your cat’s names? Well, when I was in the market for a Cornish Rex, my daughter, who was 4 years old at the time, wanted to name our new kitten “Pixie”. I had initially been on a waiting list for a female kitten, but when a male became available, I couldn’t resist and we changed the name to “Pixel”. After we brought Pixel home, we knew we wanted another Cornish Rex, so we waited and got our female kitten later. Once again, my daughter got to choose the name and she decided to call her “Sophie”.
In terms of their relationship, Pixel and Sophie have a good rapport with each other most of the time. However, some sibling rivalry does come into play when they both vie for my attention or a particular toy. Fortunately, they sort out their differences promptly, with Sophie often emerging as the winner. As for their personalities, Pixel is a playful and curious cat who loves being the center of attention. On the other hand, Sophie exudes a more relaxed demeanor and tends to be quieter. Nonetheless, she can be quite vocal when she wants me to hold and pet her.
Frankie, the Fluffy Rescue Kitty, Brings Comfort to Those in Need Do you know what Frankie’s favorite pastimes are? Well, one of his top picks is playing fetch. He can tirelessly run after his toy mice if someone keeps throwing them. Meanwhile, Sophie prefers a more relaxed activity – bird-watching from a sunny window. She seems to believe that she’d make an excellent hunter if given the chance! But what makes Frankie and Sophie truly special go beyond their hobbies or physical appearances. As their owner, I feel blessed to have such sweet and gentle cats. They bring immense comfort to my daughter who is on the autism spectrum. Unfortunately, no pictures or videos can fully capture how much they mean to us and the joy they bring into our lives.
I would like to express my gratitude to Alyson K., the proud owner of Pixel and Sophie, for graciously giving me permission to feature her adorable felines on Cattitude Daily. If you want to see more of these quirky cats, don’t forget to follow their social media accounts on Instagram and TikTok.
