0:01:020:01:05

Today, we're in Edinburgh to meet Lily and her pet cat.

0:01:100:01:14

Let's go and meet them. Come on!

0:01:140:01:16

-Hi, Lily.

-Hi, Rory.

0:01:210:01:23

-Hi, Mum.

-Hi, Rory.

0:01:230:01:25

And who is in here? This must be your cat.

0:01:250:01:29

-That's Brody.

-Brody is absolutely gorgeous.

0:01:290:01:32

-You must love him very much.

-Yes.

-What do you love about him the most?

0:01:320:01:37

He sleeps in my arms and he's so playful.

0:01:370:01:40

-He sleeps IN your arms? That's SO sweet, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:01:400:01:44

What a lovely cat. Now, do you know what sort of cat Brody is?

0:01:440:01:48

-He's a Ragdoll cat.

-Oh, of course he is, I thought so.

0:01:480:01:51

How can you tell that he's a Ragdoll?

0:01:510:01:53

Because he's very fluffy and he loves lots of cuddles.

0:01:530:01:57

Yes, he's got this long, long hair, a big bushy tail, and they're

0:01:570:02:01

very relaxed, so they're happier to be handled than other cats.

0:02:010:02:05

Loves a big cuddle, don't you? Yes, look at that lovely cuddle there.

0:02:050:02:09

It's very nice.

0:02:090:02:11

What else do all Ragdoll cats have?

0:02:110:02:13

-Blue eyes.

-Yes, big blue eyes.

0:02:130:02:17

Very nice indeed.

0:02:170:02:18

How old is Brody?

0:02:180:02:20

He's nearly one.

0:02:200:02:22

-Oh, so he's still very young.

-Yes.

0:02:220:02:24

He's very sweet-natured and very calm. That's nice.

0:02:240:02:27

And how do you get Brody's fur so soft?

0:02:270:02:30

I always brush him.

0:02:300:02:32

-Aw, do you? And keep all the muck out of that hair?

-Yeah.

0:02:320:02:36

Keep it nice and clean.

0:02:360:02:38

He looks fantastic. So, what are Brody's favourite things to do?

0:02:380:02:42

Looking out the window, playing with his toys, sleeping,

0:02:420:02:46

and using his scratching post.

0:02:460:02:48

-That is LOADS of things. Lots of cats love sleeping, don't they?

-Yeah.

0:02:480:02:52

Cats actually can sometimes sleep ALL day!

0:02:520:02:55

That's much more than you and I!

0:02:550:02:57

Ferne, can you give us some fun facts about our new feline friend?

0:02:570:03:01

'Of course, Rory!

0:03:010:03:03

'Ragdoll cats come in lots of different colours,

0:03:040:03:08

'like brown...

0:03:080:03:09

'white...

0:03:090:03:11

'and grey!

0:03:110:03:12

'Lots of Ragdoll kittens are born white

0:03:140:03:17

'and they get their colours as they start to grow up.

0:03:170:03:21

'Ragdoll cats tend to be very affectionate,

0:03:220:03:25

'and most of them love playtime and cuddles.

0:03:250:03:28

'Aww!'

0:03:280:03:29

Cats are amazing animals and, like most pets, need lots of love,

0:03:380:03:43

care and attention. How do you look after Brody?

0:03:430:03:46

I give him food, I give him water, I brush him

0:03:460:03:50

and I clean out his litter tray.

0:03:500:03:53

-So, you've got lots to do, then?

-Yeah.

0:03:530:03:55

What do we need to do first?

0:03:550:03:57

Clean out his litter tray, where he does the toilet.

0:03:570:04:00

Yes, I thought you were going to say that.

0:04:000:04:03

A bit of a stinky job but a very important one.

0:04:030:04:06

The cat won't go in a very dirty litter tray.

0:04:060:04:09

-What do we need to do first?

-First, we have to put on gloves.

0:04:090:04:12

Good idea. We should keep our hands nice and clean.

0:04:120:04:16

Right, gloves on.

0:04:210:04:22

-Now, I think we should take this lid off, shouldn't we?

-Yes.

-OK.

0:04:220:04:27

Get that out the way. Oh.

0:04:270:04:29

What are you doing?

0:04:290:04:32

-Oh, wow! That's where the scoop is?

-Yeah.

0:04:320:04:34

One of these bags, I'll pinch one of these.

0:04:340:04:37

Close that back up.

0:04:370:04:39

How often do you clean the litter tray?

0:04:390:04:41

Once a day but sometimes my mummy does it when I'm at school,

0:04:410:04:45

if there's anything in it.

0:04:450:04:47

That's a good idea, isn't it?

0:04:470:04:49

We use this scoop to scoop out the poo and we put it in this bag.

0:04:490:04:54

There's one there.

0:04:540:04:56

-Any more?

-No.

-Doesn't look like it.

0:05:010:05:04

If there's wet, we have to empty it all out and replace it.

0:05:050:05:09

-All of it?

-Yeah.

-OK, that looks nice and dry.

0:05:090:05:12

We don't have to change the litter today, do we?

0:05:120:05:15

Right, let me tie this up.

0:05:150:05:17

Put more litter in, so it's nice and fresh.

0:05:200:05:23

That looks good, doesn't it? There we go.

0:05:230:05:26

Now let's even all this out now.

0:05:260:05:29

-Great!

-Put the lid back on.

-Good thinking.

0:05:310:05:35

All done. Brody's going to be happy,

0:05:370:05:39

he's got a nice, clean, fresh litter tray.

0:05:390:05:42

We need to feed him, Rory.

0:05:420:05:44

OK, let's get these gloves off and wash our hands.

0:05:440:05:48

Most cats like to eat a variety of food.

0:06:130:06:15

Some have wet food, some have dry food, and some have both.

0:06:150:06:19

What does Brody like to eat?

0:06:190:06:20

He likes dry biscuits and wet food pouches,

0:06:200:06:24

and he gets treats sometimes, when he's good.

0:06:240:06:27

-Oh, lovely! Only when he's good, though?

-Yeah.

0:06:270:06:30

-Where do you keep the food in the house?

-I keep his dry biscuits

0:06:300:06:34

in the cupboard and I keep wet food pouches

0:06:340:06:37

in the fridge if they've been opened.

0:06:370:06:41

Yes, that's a very good idea.

0:06:410:06:43

Keep open wet food pouches in the fridge, so they won't go off.

0:06:430:06:46

How much do you feed Brody?

0:06:460:06:48

I give him one food pouch a day

0:06:480:06:50

and dry biscuits - but he doesn't eat them all at once.

0:06:500:06:55

-Okey doke. Shall we give him some now, then?

-Yes.

-Right.

0:06:550:06:59

-OK, and now the wet food?

-Yes.

0:07:050:07:08

-Don't want to waste any, do we?

-No.

0:07:160:07:19

There we go.

0:07:190:07:21

Cats only eat a small amount of food at a time.

0:07:210:07:23

They may eat all their wet food and just a little dry.

0:07:230:07:27

Don't worry, they'll come back and nibble it later.

0:07:270:07:30

-I see something else here. A very fancy thing, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:07:300:07:34

What's this all about?

0:07:340:07:35

-Brody likes running water. It's like a mini waterfall.

-It is, isn't it?!

0:07:350:07:40

Now, a lot of cats like to drink running water.

0:07:400:07:43

Some cats even go to the tap to drink it. This device is very clever,

0:07:430:07:47

cos it's got running water from here that dribbles down,

0:07:470:07:50

so Brody can get some nice, fresh running water. What a very lucky cat!

0:07:500:07:55

-Brody is such a cuddly, lovely cat, isn't he?

-Yes.

0:08:100:08:14

Oh, he's loving these cuddles.

0:08:140:08:16

If Brody could do anything,

0:08:160:08:18

what do you think he would do?

0:08:180:08:20

DRUMROLL

0:08:200:08:22

If my pet could do anything, he would jump on rooftops...

0:08:240:08:30

and jump from house to house.

0:08:300:08:32

He would go in someone else's house...

0:08:320:08:35

..and take another cat's food and water.

0:08:370:08:41

And, then, he would go back up on the rooftops and do a somersault.

0:08:410:08:45

And at the end he would dress in a kilt and play the bagpipes.

0:08:480:08:52

Brody's a very lucky cat. Today he's getting a special treat.

0:08:550:08:59

He's getting his claws clipped

0:08:590:09:01

and he's going to be groomed at the parlour.

0:09:010:09:04

Rory, please can you help me put Brody in his carry-case?

0:09:040:09:08

-Yeah, for sure. You got it there?

-Yes.

0:09:080:09:10

You open it up and I'll put Brody in.

0:09:100:09:13

Here we go.

0:09:130:09:14

There we go, Brody.

0:09:160:09:17

He looks nice and safe in there, doesn't he?

0:09:170:09:20

I like to give him a toy, so he's not scared.

0:09:200:09:24

OK, you pop that in.

0:09:240:09:25

There we go.

0:09:280:09:29

-OK, good to go!

-Come on.

0:09:320:09:34

-Hi, Jack.

-Hi, Rory. Hi, Lily.

-Hi.

0:09:460:09:48

What's Brody getting done today?

0:09:480:09:50

He's getting his nails done.

0:09:500:09:52

So, we clip his nails and then give him a brush.

0:09:520:09:56

Come on. Oh.

0:09:560:09:58

There we go.

0:09:580:09:59

He's a bit wriggly today, isn't he?

0:10:020:10:05

Like that.

0:10:070:10:08

Because Brody's an indoor cat, it's important for him

0:10:100:10:13

to get his claws clipped every four-to-six weeks.

0:10:130:10:16

So, we'll take about a third off

0:10:160:10:18

-and that'll stop him getting stuck in the carpet.

-OK.

-Do you know

0:10:180:10:22

-how many claws Brody has?

-He has five on each paw at the front,

0:10:220:10:26

and four on each paw at the back.

0:10:260:10:28

-That's right, so 18 in total. That's a lot of claws, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:10:280:10:32

There you are. All nice and short.

0:10:320:10:34

Very good.

0:10:340:10:36

We've clipped the claws, is it time for some brushing now?

0:10:360:10:40

-Do you want to do some brushing?

-Yes.

0:10:400:10:42

It's important to brush him, so his hair doesn't mat.

0:10:420:10:46

Gently brush the way the hair grows.

0:10:460:10:48

I'll get him with a comb for taking all the undercoat away,

0:10:480:10:51

so it stays nice and clean, and nice and soft.

0:10:510:10:54

The hair he's shedding comes off in the comb

0:10:540:10:57

-and stops fur balls.

-Sometimes Brody gets fur balls.

0:10:570:11:01

That's when they get fur in their mouth

0:11:010:11:04

-and then they make a funny noise.

-Do they?

-Yeah.

0:11:040:11:08

-Is that because they're coughing it up?

-Yeah.

0:11:080:11:11

That's why it's very important to brush him with this nice comb.

0:11:110:11:15

You can see there all the hair that's come out. Look at all that.

0:11:150:11:19

-That's Brody just about done now.

-Great, let's get his box.

0:11:190:11:23

-Here you go, Brody.

-One, two, three!

0:11:250:11:27

Good boy, well done.

0:11:270:11:29

Perfect! Thanks very much, Jack.

0:11:310:11:33

-You're very welcome.

-See you later.

-See you later, goodbye.

-Bye.

0:11:330:11:37

-Brody has been a very good cat today, hasn't he?

-Yeah.

-Yes.

0:11:390:11:42

-I think he deserves a bit of playtime, don't you?

-Yes.

0:11:420:11:46

-This is my little brother, Fraser.

-Hi, Fraser.

-Hi, Rory.

0:11:460:11:50

-Are you ready to play with Brody?

-Yes.

0:11:500:11:53

-Lily, are you ready?

-Yes.

-OK.

0:11:530:11:55

Right, Brody. Right, Brody.

0:11:550:11:57

You have a go, see if Brody'll come.

0:11:590:12:02

-He's got it in his mouth.

-Hee-hee!

-Ah!

0:12:040:12:06

Oh, a paw on it!

0:12:060:12:09

-Oh!

-Ha-ha-ha!

0:12:090:12:11

-Oh! He got it!

-Oh, he's got it completely!

0:12:130:12:17

There!

0:12:170:12:18

-Brody, well done.

-He took it away!

0:12:180:12:22

Well, guys, thank you very much for letting me meet Brody.

0:12:220:12:25

I've had a wonderful day and he is a brilliant cat.

0:12:250:12:29

-BOTH:

-Thanks, Rory!

-My Pet And Me!

0:12:370:12:39

-Hi, Ferne.

-Oh, hi, Rory.

-Hi, Holly. Hi, Berry.

0:12:390:12:43

I'm trying to make their beds, but they're not being very helpful.

0:12:430:12:47

-I can see that.

-You look happy, what have you been up to?

0:12:470:12:51

I'm very happy, I had a great time with my new friends.

0:12:510:12:54

-It was so much fun!

-That's lovely!

-Aw. Pets are brilliant,

0:12:540:12:58

but, remember, you shouldn't touch an animal unless the owner says it's OK.

0:12:580:13:02

But two pets you can play with are ours. Go onto the CBeebies website

0:13:020:13:06

and play the My Pet And Me Game.

0:13:060:13:08

Thanks for spending time with us. We hope you've had fun.

0:13:080:13:12

Rory visits Lily and her cat Brody. Together, they clean out her litter tray and feed her, before having lots of cuddles. Later, they head to the cat-grooming parlour so that Brody can get her nails clipped and have a brush too.
