A ginger cat who found a cat who looked just like him has now raised him like he was his own kitten and they’ve grown up looking identical.
Evin and Minnie have been inseparable ever since the day they met. Jessica Ryan is the proud mother of both of the kitties. Evin was a Christmas present from her boyfriend, who is a dairy farmer, he brought home the barn cat she fell in love with in 2014.
They then saw little Minnie when she was just a kitten and fell in love with him, he was a mini version of Evin (hence the name) and they found it so cute. Minnie moved into his new home and, to everybody’s relief, Evin completely adored him too. Minnie became Evin’s little side-kick and wouldn’t go anywhere without him.
It would be the cutest thing to see Minnie follow (literally) Evin in his paw-steps, walking behind him everywhere he went and copying him. In return for the admiration, Evin washed him and groomed him just like he was his own kitten, he gave him all the love and cuddles that he needed too.
Minnie was literally like Evin’s shrunken mini mirror reflection, following him everywhere even when Evin might want his privacy, he climbed into the bed with him – even when there wasn’t enough room and always tried to push himself so he too could do the adult things that Evin did.
I guess it is true that opposites attract in their case; Evin is a very laid back, chilled out and lovely cat whereas Minnie is completely wild and hyperactive, he runs around the house like a maniac. Minnie has to be played with just before bed so he actually sleeps.
The two cats are side by size all day, every day. Their similar coats make it look like they just merge together – creating complete friendship goals.
Evin has also taught Minnie all the tricks on how to the run house, such as jumping in an open suitcase in hope that mum will take you with her and always wait by the window just to make sure you’re there when mum pulls up in her car.
It has now been two whole years since the two ginger cats met each other and Minnie has grown up. They are still inseparable and it has become increasingly difficult to tell the two apart from each other.
