Django loves Juno. But does Juno love Django? (Don’t miss the cat-fight in slo-mo!)

Django just wants to hug Juno. He even snuck a kiss this morning! But watch what happens next…

Black cat Juno is a clever eight-year-old cat, thoughtful and generally gentle and very cool (but sometimes a little nervous). She has lived with us for a year and a half.

Django is a two-year-old ginger cat whom we adopted from the RSPCA a couple of months ago. As they described him to us, he’s a “total smooch”, who kisses and hugs and licks everyone and everything.

Django adores Juno and makes the most incredible sound when she’s in the room, or occasionally when he’s just thinking about her and wondering where she is. They’re impossible to describe, but I’ll try and get a good recording of them and post it here soon.

However, Juno hisses and whacks Django if he comes within about a foot and a half (45 cm) of her.

Still, though, she misses him when he’s not around and she seeks him out as often as she tries to get away from him. But she likes to keep her distance.

Django is the most playful adult cat we’ve ever met. He still behaves like a kitten, climbing and running and play-fighting and generally being hyperactive, until the afternoon, when he sleeps on the couch for a few hours. He tries to get as close to Juno as he can and we’re pretty sure he just wants to hug and kiss her like crazy. He’s irrepressible and will gradually edge up, to her, almost imperceptibly in small degrees. He might roll over or stretch every now and then, just casually, but every time getting an inch closer to her. And, in between, he’ll just sit and gaze upon her adoringly. She looks the other way, or else gives him THAT look, which says, “I see what you’re doing.”

Eventually he might lose control of his emotions and just go for her, sometimes with his special sound, his “name” for her, which is usually cut short by what happens next… as seen in this video, first at normal speed and then in slow motion.

Django likes to sit with his wee paws under the rug

Django likes to sit with his wee paws under the rug.

He also likes to play-fight with the rug, with any rug, in a most unruly yet entertaining manner.  But when he settles down and puts his little white socked paws under it as if to keep them warm it’s adorable, just like pretty much everything he does, really.
