-Hello! Welcome to My Pet And Me. I'm Ferne.

0:00:020:00:06

-We've just been walking lovely big D'Artagnan here.

-Isn't he gorgeous?

0:00:060:00:10

We like to make sure that all the animals get plenty of fresh air and

0:00:100:00:13

-exercise.

-And lots of water, too, don't forget.

0:00:130:00:15

That's true. Very, very important.

0:00:150:00:17

Lots of animals make excellent pets, and we love meeting you and yours.

We definitely do. And on that note,

0:01:110:01:14

Today, I'm in Derby to meet sisters Charis and Manita and their pet cat.

0:01:160:01:21

I just love cats. Come on.

0:01:210:01:24

-Hello!

-Hello.

-Hello.

0:01:340:01:36

You must be Charis and Manita.

0:01:360:01:38

-Yeah.

-Hi, Ferne.

-Lovely to meet you.

0:01:380:01:41

-And you must be Mum. Hi.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:01:410:01:43

Now, I heard that you have a really special cat

0:01:430:01:46

-that I would just love to meet.

-Yeah.

-Can we go see her?

0:01:460:01:50

-Yeah. Come in.

-Thank you.

0:01:500:01:51

So, girls, this is your cat.

0:01:570:01:59

-Yeah.

-She's beautiful.

0:01:590:02:01

-What's her name?

-Olives.

-Olives.

-That's a fantastic name.

0:02:010:02:05

What type of cat is Olives?

0:02:050:02:07

BOTH: A Siamese.

0:02:070:02:08

-That's a very special type of cat, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:02:080:02:12

-What's something special about Olives?

-She loves cuddles.

0:02:120:02:16

-She looks very cuddly, doesn't she?

-Yeah. Yeah.

0:02:160:02:19

She's so cute. Siamese cats are very affectionate,

0:02:190:02:23

and they love to curl up and have a cuddle.

0:02:230:02:26

They also love company and you can often see them following

0:02:260:02:29

you around the house. They're very cheeky.

0:02:290:02:32

What else is special about Olives?

0:02:320:02:34

She's got blue eyes.

0:02:340:02:36

And they are beautiful blue eyes, aren't they?

0:02:360:02:38

-Yeah.

-All Siamese cats have blue eyes, just like Olives.

0:02:380:02:41

And they're stunning. So how old is she?

0:02:410:02:45

-Seven.

-That's still quite young, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:02:450:02:48

Hello, Olives. So, so soft.

0:02:480:02:52

What is Olives's favourite thing to do?

0:02:520:02:55

-Curl up and watch us play.

-Does she sit and watch you play? Is she nosy?

0:02:550:02:59

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-Cos Siamese cats are very intelligent.

0:02:590:03:04

Does Olives sleep a lot?

0:03:040:03:05

-Yeah. Yeah.

-Some cats can sleep most of the day,

0:03:050:03:09

which is a lot longer than us, isn't it?

0:03:090:03:11

They love having a good sleep.

0:03:110:03:14

Rory, can you tell us some more facts

0:03:140:03:16

about our purr-fect new friend here?

0:03:160:03:19

Yes, of course, Ferne.

0:03:190:03:21

One - Siamese cats tend to have darker fur on their ears, faces,

0:03:210:03:26

tails and legs.

0:03:260:03:28

And this is called pointed.

0:03:280:03:30

Two - young Siamese cats are mainly white in colour

0:03:310:03:36

and their pointed fur only gets darker as they get older.

0:03:360:03:40

-Three - Siamese cats love to talk, especially to their owners.

-Meow!

0:03:410:03:46

And when they want your attention, they make a very loud yowl.

0:03:460:03:50

Yooowwweeow!

0:03:500:03:53

Four - the Siamese breed is known to be very playful and some like to run

0:03:530:03:58

around like they're kittens!

0:03:580:04:00

Five - Siamese cats tend to be great jumpers and love heights,

0:04:010:04:06

so they can often be found sitting up high on things.

0:04:060:04:10

Cats can make great pets,

0:04:190:04:21

but, just like all pets, they need lots of love,

0:04:210:04:24

-care and attention, don't they, girls?

-Yeah.

0:04:240:04:27

So what do we need to do to look after Olives?

0:04:270:04:30

Feed her, give her water, clean her litter tray and play with her.

0:04:300:04:35

-That's a long list, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-Can I help you out today?

0:04:350:04:39

-Yeah.

-So what is the first thing we need to do?

-Feed her.

0:04:390:04:42

That sounds good. And how often do you feed Olives?

0:04:420:04:46

-Morning and night-time.

-That's great.

0:04:460:04:48

And this is a measured amount of food for her, isn't it?

0:04:480:04:52

-Yeah.

-We have to be careful we don't give her too much.

0:04:520:04:55

Most cats like to eat small amounts of food at a time, but don't worry,

0:04:550:04:59

they'll always come back for a little nibble later.

0:04:590:05:02

-Is that what Olives does?

-Yeah.

0:05:020:05:04

-What type of food does Olives eat?

-Dry cat food.

0:05:040:05:07

Do you think that's tasty?

0:05:070:05:09

Some cats eat dry food, some eat wet food, and some even eat both.

0:05:090:05:13

But Olives is a fan of the dry food.

0:05:130:05:16

That's a perfect amount.

0:05:180:05:20

-Your mum measured that out for you this morning, didn't she?

-Yeah.

0:05:200:05:24

What else do we need to do for Olives?

0:05:240:05:26

-Give her water.

-That's really important.

0:05:260:05:29

Cats need to have access to lots of fresh water every day.

0:05:290:05:33

-They love a good drink, don't they?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:05:330:05:36

-Shall I pour some into her water bowl?

-Yeah.

0:05:360:05:39

You tell me when I've done enough.

0:05:390:05:41

-That's enough.

-Yeah?

0:05:430:05:44

-Yeah.

-Perfect.

0:05:440:05:46

-So, shall we put this down?

-Yeah.

0:05:460:05:48

And what do we need to do next?

0:05:480:05:50

-Clean her litter tray.

-That sounds good.

0:05:500:05:53

So this is your litter tray.

0:06:040:06:06

It's great. A litter tray is where a pet cat goes to the toilet.

0:06:060:06:10

And cats are very clean animals.

0:06:100:06:13

They won't really use a litter tray unless it's cleaned regularly.

0:06:130:06:16

-Isn't that right?

-Yeah.

0:06:160:06:18

-Look, Ferne, she's not used it.

-I know! It's fantastic.

0:06:180:06:22

Thank you, Olives, no messy job for us. But if you do need to clean a

0:06:220:06:26

litter tray it's really important that you...

0:06:260:06:29

-Wash your hands.

-Exactly. Olives is one lucky cat.

0:06:290:06:32

She's got a nice clean litter tray.

0:06:320:06:34

She's got fresh food and fresh water. Low-five.

0:06:340:06:38

It's feeding time for Olives,

0:06:400:06:42

and she's coming downstairs for a nibble of her food.

0:06:420:06:46

Oh, she seems to be enjoying that.

0:06:500:06:52

Looks tasty.

0:06:520:06:54

Where is she off to now?

0:06:590:07:01

It must be playtime.

0:07:030:07:05

What's she doing under those chairs?

0:07:060:07:10

Oh, she's decided to come up for some lovely cuddles instead.

0:07:100:07:15

Oh, she loves a good tickle.

0:07:150:07:18

Well, she's been fed and cuddled and looks like a very happy cat.

0:07:240:07:29

Time for Olives to head back upstairs for a lovely snooze.

0:07:290:07:33

Oh, so, this is Olives's scratching post. It's great.

0:07:340:07:39

It's really important that pet cats have a scratching post

0:07:390:07:43

cos it keeps their claws in shape and it's also great for exercise.

0:07:430:07:47

-Charis, where do you think Olives is now?

-Sitting in the sun.

0:07:470:07:50

Oh, lucky cat!

0:07:500:07:51

-KIDS:

-My Pet And Me!

0:08:000:08:04

Some cats like Olives just love cuddles.

0:08:060:08:09

Charis, if Olives could do absolutely anything in the world,

0:08:090:08:13

what would she do?

0:08:130:08:14

If my pet could do anything...

0:08:170:08:19

she would fly on an aeroplane to France.

0:08:190:08:23

And then she would climb on top of the Eiffel Tower.

0:08:250:08:30

Then she would come back down.

0:08:300:08:34

She would be wearing a pink dress.

0:08:340:08:37

And carrying a nice velvet bag.

0:08:380:08:41

Olives is a really lucky cat to have the two of you to take care of her,

0:08:470:08:52

-isn't she?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-And cats like Olives just love playtime.

0:08:520:08:56

So I had an idea. How about we make her a nice feather toy?

0:08:560:09:00

-Yeah!

-Yeah!

-Do you think she'll like it?

0:09:000:09:02

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-OK. Here you go, Manita.

0:09:020:09:06

Charis.

0:09:060:09:08

-What do you think she's doing now?

-She's...

-Probably under the bed.

0:09:090:09:13

Yeah?

0:09:130:09:15

Charis, yours looks beautiful. So does yours, Manita.

0:09:150:09:19

These are going to be the most colourful cat toys.

0:09:210:09:24

-Do you think Olives has a favourite colour?

-Purr-ple.

0:09:250:09:30

-Purrrrrr-ple.

-Purrrrrr-rple.

-Purrrrrr-ple.

0:09:300:09:35

Do you think that's all cats' favourite colour?

0:09:350:09:38

-Yeah.

-Probably.

0:09:380:09:39

Shall we make the stick nice and pretty next?

0:09:410:09:44

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:09:440:09:45

So she's got the ball and the ribbon to play with.

0:09:450:09:48

So Olives can play with two things.

0:09:480:09:51

Yes. Because cats love trying to catch things, don't they?

0:09:510:09:55

-Yeah.

-So, should we stick some toy feathers on?

0:09:550:09:59

-Yeah.

-Should we?

-Yeah.

0:09:590:10:02

What colour feathers should I choose?

0:10:020:10:06

Look.

0:10:060:10:07

Olives is going to love this.

0:10:070:10:09

This is fun.

0:10:090:10:11

It is fun making cat toys.

0:10:120:10:15

But remember not to use anything too small that they could swallow.

0:10:150:10:19

All finished. These look fantastic.

0:10:190:10:22

Good job, girls. Do you think Olives is going to like them?

0:10:220:10:25

-Yeah.

-Shall we go find her and show her?

-Yeah.

-OK. Olives!

0:10:250:10:29

Look what we made!

0:10:290:10:31

Do you think she likes it when we've got lots of colours floating around

0:10:370:10:41

in her face?

0:10:410:10:43

It's really important that when you're playing with your cat

0:10:430:10:46

you don't make them cross or annoy them.

0:10:460:10:48

They'll usually let you know that they've had enough by walking away.

0:10:480:10:52

Come on, Olives, look at your toys.

0:10:520:10:53

Come on.

0:10:560:10:58

-Do you think she likes these colours, girls?

-Yes.

0:10:580:11:01

-I think she does.

-It's got a bit of purr-ple.

0:11:010:11:05

It's got a lot of purr-ple in here.

0:11:050:11:09

It's important to make time to play with your cat

0:11:090:11:12

to keep them entertained and happy, and afterwards, when they are done,

0:11:120:11:16

you can always give them a nice cuddle.

0:11:160:11:19

-I love Olives.

-I love Olives, too. She's gorgeous.

0:11:190:11:23

-Oh, look, she's come over here.

-Yeah.

0:11:240:11:28

I think she likes the ribbons the best.

0:11:380:11:40

GIRLS LAUGH

0:11:420:11:44

I think you're right, Charis.

0:11:450:11:47

She's enjoying playing with that green ribbon.

0:11:470:11:51

I think she loves that, doesn't she, Charis?

0:11:560:11:59

Yes. She's tired after all that playing.

0:11:590:12:03

She is. I've just loved meeting you and Olives.

0:12:030:12:06

She's such a beautiful cat.

0:12:060:12:08

Thank you very much.

0:12:080:12:09

BOTH: Thanks, Ferne.

0:12:090:12:12

-KIDS:

-My Pet And Me!

0:12:180:12:22

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:12:220:12:24

-Hiya, Hector.

-How was your day?

-It was fantastic.

0:12:240:12:27

I had such a good time with my friends. It was really fun.

0:12:270:12:31

Oh, great. Well, as you can see,

0:12:310:12:32

I've been catching up on some serious cuddle time with Hector.

0:12:320:12:35

I can see that. And he's loving it.

0:12:350:12:37

Pets are great, but remember,

0:12:370:12:39

you shouldn't touch an animal unless the owner says it's OK first.

0:12:390:12:41

Two pets you definitely can play with, though, are ours.

0:12:410:12:44

Go to the CBeebies website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:12:440:12:47

What a fantastic time we had.

0:12:470:12:49

We just love meeting you and your pets.

0:12:490:12:51
