Slate's "open eyes"

Slate is sleeping in this photo with his new blanket, and his real eyes can't be seen. However, he has a pair of oval shaped patterns above his real eyes that are always open, which might serve to ward off potential predators if he were in the wild.

We think Slate is mostly a Tabby/American Shortail mix, but when looking through some cat encyclopedias, he also has some traits of a Bengal tiger or cat, including a very long tail.

Gilligan sleeping

Gilligan also sleeps a lot, but less than Slate, and is rarely found in a deep sleep. He needs to go outside every day or else he creates big fusses and messes.

The slightest noises will wake Gilligan up, or at least cause him to open one eye a bit, while Slate often remains in a deep sleep.

Gilligan is an avid hunter, and has brought at least one bird back to the house. Both Gilligan and Slate show the natural cat instincts, but as kittens, Gilligan tended to play harder, more agressively, and bite a bit more than Slate.

Slate sleeping

Like most young cats, Slate sleeps about 14 hours a day. He's getting larger, but is not quite 1 year old yet. He doesn't go outside daily like Gilligan, but he's starting to get curious about the outdoors and always greets and sniffs Gilligan upon his return.
