Roux and St Claude, a Cool Set of Cat Twins

As a postcard and cat lover, I love when I can combine these two passions. Meet Roux and St Claude, a lovely set of feline twins that is part of the Amazing Acro-Cats, a traveling troupe of the Rock Cats Rescue, a 501c3 organization.

Roux and St Claude look so much alike that I can't tell them apart. Well, they ARE twins, after all. I have been told that Roux is slightly bigger and has a tiny dent in his tail. I saw them in person before I knew this and could not tell them apart. Their birthday is September 30, 2017. As you might have guessed by their names, they were born in Louisiana.

They usually train together because they are inseparable. Their signature trick is pictured on this postcard, but they do other things as well. If you're wondering who is who on the card, that I do know. Roux is always pushing while St Claude enjoys the ride.

Here is a fun fact: These cool cats are already movie stars. They starred in a Lowe's commercial and got to shred blinds.

I purchased this postcard from their shop and sent it (written and stamped) to a cat lover in the Netherlands. Here is the reply I got:

“Hello Alexandra, thank you very much for your nice postcard - featuring adorable Acrocats Roux and St. Claude, which arrived today ! ... :-)
 I was fond of your interesting description of these two very special cats, since i am madly in love with all feline darlings, and just cannot imagine a life without them, meoww .....
All best wishes to you and all your loved ones, be they 2- or 4-legged,
and warm greetings."

My pictures were taken with an inexpensive, moderately intelligent phone, so they're not the best quality. The postcards you get from the store are professionally done. The unwritten backside looks cool too. (pointy finger)↓↓
