Lumos: Do you ever feel guilty after being cranky? I was so cranky after I had my snip snip, I was growling and being a cranky pants. I even got locked in the bathroom and I attacked the bath mat and tore it to pieces! Then the next day, I felt guilty that I decided I better purr and look totally innocent. I'm sure I melted everyone's hearts. 🔊 For my purrs #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you like to think that you're classy? I definitely do! So much so that I like drinking tea for cats. It has catnip, lemon grass and basil. I'm so classy that I like drinking it out of tea cups. It also has to be poured from a tea pot! But it has to be cold tea because I'm a classy kitty that way. All that was missing was my bow tie! @teaforcats #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you sometimes think that you got away with something only to realise that you really didn't? Yesterday I let go of some 💨 and it was silent. I was so relieved because everyone was near me and they didn't hear! But then... Our air filter went into overdrive! And revealed that I had 💨 because I was the only one next to the air filter. It revealed everything! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also finally managed to do a #meerkatmondayforboss for our dear friend @boss_the_bengal. We miss you little guy ♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: How incredible is this portrait by the talented @penandpaperartistic ? Mummy and Daddy were so blown away when they saw it! Swipe ➡️ to see it. . We were so excited when we won a portrait from @kate_and_caesar giveaway! . And then Mummy realised that she wanted the portrait to capture our markings and our personalities and she didn't have a photo that did all that. @penandpaperartistic was so nice and captured it all for us from several photos. Thank you so much ♥️ . The 2 portraits are going to have a special place in both the @catexplorer.community office and at Daddy's work. . Thank you so much @penandpaperartistic and @kate_and_caesar ♥️ #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: How do you say goodnight to your humans? Every night before she goes to bed, Mummy gives Noxie and I a cuddle and says good night, sleep tight, love you and tells us to look after each other. We don't like that she's going to disappear for a few hours so we run away from her cuddles. Then... Just as she falls asleep... I run upstairs meowing my head off so that I can say good night. Most nights she comes out of the bedroom, gives me a cuddle and tucks me into bed. #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: What has been the longest time you've been away from someone you love? On this day, Lumos has his first messy explosion in the litter box and Mummy had to separate us and give him a mini bath. I was so worried about him, I was meowing at the door, checking if he was ok. Then when he finally got out I gave him a huge cuddle and groom to show him how much I love him. And then he groomed me! He never does that!! #throwback #cheekygymnastnoxie #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: What are your thoughts on rain? I normally don't like it, but if it is raining while we're exploring, I don't mind it! I just do a fluff and shake it off and keep going. There are too many things to see! Noxie hates it though. She jumps in her bag and curls up to avoid getting her fur wet. But at home, she loves playing in the water that comes out of the tap! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Don't humans look at the oddest things? Noxie: yeah! I just wanted to check out the goats in the neighbouring paddock but Daddy was looking at some cows. The goats were way more interesting! 😹 #cheekygymnastnoxie #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Aren't wand toys just fabulous?! Today I'm sharing my special 6 steps to wake up your humans in the middle of the night, you know at 1am when you just want to remind them you love them. All you need is a wand toy! 1. Use your paw to open the toy draw. 2. Pick a wand toy that is next to toys that make noise when they move. 3. Pull out the wand toy with your mouth. Make sure you make as much noise as possible. Extra points if you get all the toys tangled. 4. Use your mouth to drag the wand toy and its attached tangle to your humans room. Make sure the wand hits all the walls, furniture and skirting boards all the way. This will wake your humans. 5. When you get close to your humans room, meow with the toy in your mouth. This will make them get out of bed and come give you a cuddle. 6. Stand proudly and show off your handiwork. That's it, a way to wake up your humans and to be proud! #lumosisapaininthebuttattentionseeker #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Don't you think our humans eat in front of us to torture us?! Noxie: pffft I don't care! That birdy looks much tastier than pancakes! #cheekygymnastnoxie #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you understand the bath tub? Mummy was having a bath last night. To be honest, it doesn't bother me much when she does that. Noxie freaks out and has to keep checking on Mummy. What confuses me is where the water goes afterwards and the sound it makes as the water disappears. Afterwards, I spent a long time sitting in the bath, staring at the drain. I was so confused and curious 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: What has been your favourite memory of 2018? I have so many that I can't count them! Maybe travelling to Orange and staying on a farm... Or going to the Blue Mountains and meeting a horsey... Or going to the @greenlionroar.... Or going to the @sydneyveganmarket.... Or all the weekend trips! I don't know! We would also like to take a moment to remember the dear friends we have lost this year, including dear @boss_the_bengal. ♥️ We haven't mastered the kitty meerkat pose but we will keep trying so that we can keep the #meerkatmondayforboss tradition going. We're sending so much love to Boss' family. ♥️♥️♥️ . Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: I'm so proud of how far Lumos and Noxie have come this year. At the beginning of 2018 they had only worn their harnesses at home and we were struggling with clicker training. What a change 12 months have made! We'd like to say thank you to all of you for following our antics this year and we're so grateful for all of you. Here's to 2019 being full of friendship, fun, love and happiness ♥️♥️♥️ #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do your humans tell you that you're about to do something and then they do something completely different? That happened on this day. Mummy said that we were going out for a quick brunch, then to the park. But... We went out to brunch, that took a while because I wanted to explore. Then we went to a park which was fun. But the park had a beach! We're not used to waves yet. Then we went to a picnic with friends and we met a doggy! I thought it was going to be a quick trip so I didn't even groom my face properly! I wasn't prepared for so much attention and to see people. I told Mummy that it was like she went out to get the mail in her pjs and then bumped into heaps of people she knows! I'm so embarrassed! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you love chasing flies? The other day, I was running around chasing a fly. I was jumping everywhere, climbing furniture and running. I was super focused on the fly. And then... Before I knew it, I fell off the kitchen counter. The counter just ended where I needed it to be so I could get the fly! 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos & Noxie: Merry Christmas to all our lovely friends!🎄🎅🎁☃️ It's such a magical time! ♥️ We hope that you are all getting and giving lots of lovely toys, treats and cuddles. We're so very grateful for each of you! We celebrated our family Christmas yesterday and got all our presents! And Mummy & Daddy made us a carnival themed box castle! Swipe ➡️ to see it. It has a floor that has all these balls to play with and the top floor has our own Christmas tree. Then on the side there is a granny flat with a bubble wrap floor and a chimney for Santa. Lumos: How could we forget the catnip box! Noxie: Or the box with tissue paper! We spent all of yesterday playing in our box castle and with all our toys, it was so very fun! For a tour of our box castle and to see our toys, check out our IGTV. ♥️ #merryschristmas #cuddlebearlumos #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox
Lumos: Have you ever achieved anything that was a total fluke? I did last night! I really wanted to get into. Mummy and Daddy's bedroom but the door was closed. But I somehow got in! I was so excited! At first, I snuck around sniffing everything, shaking with excitement because I can never get in the bedroom. But then I got so excited and happy that I decided to tell Mummy and Daddy. I purred and drooled all over them and they said "Lumos! How did you get in here???" and then... They put me back outside the bedroom! #imstillonthenicelist ! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer 📸 @furrymunchkinsphotography
Lumos: Do you get distracted and forget where you are going? Yesterday, I though we weren't going outside so I sat on the kitchen bench. Then Mummy said "outside, outside, outside time!" I got so excited I started running without looking where I was going and.... I fell in the sink! And, everyone saw me fall! 😹😹😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: Do you spy on everyone while being in incognito mode? I love it! That's why I love my backpack, I can curl up in it and then spy on everyone through the windows. Lumos: I may be an attention seeker, but I love doing that too! And if there is a smell we like, or something we want to see, we stand up and poke our heads out or lean on Mummy and Daddy's shoulders. Lumos & Noxie's Mummy: We often get asked how we walk through crowds with Lumos & Noxie, so thought we would share this video from our visit to the @sydneyveganmarket. When we are in crowds, we always only go to a crowded space (like in this video) for a couple of minutes and then take breaks in quieter places. We also do our best to stay away from music and loud sounds as we imagine Lumos and Noxie don't enjoy it and Noxie really hates guitar music too. At these markets, we walked around and then went to a quiet spot to let the kitties jump out and stretch their legs. We also used this as a chance for them to eat and drink. #cheekygymnastnoxie #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you sometimes get nightmares when you sleep? I had one last night 🙀 I got so scared and woke up. I couldn't find Noxie for a cuddle, so I ran upstairs and did my scared meow till Mummy and Daddy ran out of the bedroom. They gave me a lovely cuddle and tucked me into my bed. It was so nice. ♥️ Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: This happens to Lumos every few weeks. Does this happen to any other kitties? My heart catches in my throat everytime I hear that meow. 🙀♥️ #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: What are you asking Santa Paws to bring you? Noxie: I would like some toy mouseys! And a few boxes would be nice too! Lumos: I want more wand toys! They would be so fun! Noxie: But what I really want?! To go exploring on a farm again. Lumos: Yes and to a pub too! Where I can go say hi to all the toddlers again. #christmas #cuddlebearlumos #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer 📸 @furrymunchkinsphotography
Lumos: I have a super important question! What Hogwarts house are you in? I like to think I'm in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart. I'm courageous and determined, especially when it comes to food. Mummy is in Hufflepuff, because she's loyal and occasionally patient. But she wants to be in Ravenclaw where wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure. She's slowly accepting her Hufflepuffianism though. Daddy and Noxie are in Ravenclaw together because they're so smart and clever. I have no idea why Mummy is wearing a Gryffindor dress, maybe it's because I can't wear one? #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer 📸 @furrymunchkinsphotography
Lumos: Are you graceful? I'm not at all! The trick is to pretend that nothing happened and all is good. 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? When we met Santa, we told him how we asked Mummy to add some extra food and toys into our shopping cart for kitties in need. We're going to donate them via @giveadogabonekeepkittyhappy Christmas appeal. The toys and food will bring some Christmas cheer to kitties who are in rescues or shelters. If you're not in Sydney, you can get involved in #operationsantapaws and donate some toys and food to your local rescue or shelter. It's a nice thing to know that we can bring some extra cheer to these kitties and doggies holiday season. 🎄🎅🎁☃️ #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer 📸 @furrymunchkinsphotography

Lumos: Do your humans take hours to wake up and feed you? Today I'm sharing the next lesson in #lumosisapaininthebuttattentionseeker program. 10 fail safe ways to wake your humans up if they sleep with the door closed. 1. Wake up 1 hour before they do. Do a little bit of meowga. 2. Walk up to their door. Meow quietly. Do this for 10 minutes. 3. Meow louder. Start scratching at their door. Do this for 10 minutes. 4. Take a break for 5 minutes. Your vocal chords will need a break and you need to lull your humans into a false sense of relief to fall back asleep. 5. Start purring loudly and meow super loud for 10 minutes. 6. Start scratching the door again. Take a break from the meowing. 7. If you have siblings, bring them in now. Ask your sibling to try and reach under the door. Make sure both of you are meowing now. 8. Keep meowing, reaching under the door, and scratching the door till your human wakes up. 9. Once you hear movement in the room make sure you meow even louder and pitifully. 10. Once your human comes out of the room, purr loudly, rub yourself all over their legs so they trip (this will wake them up properly) and climb on their shoulders and head so that they hurry up and give you food! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do your humans ignore you for hours while looking at their phone? Here is the next lesson in my #lumosisapaininthebuttattentionseeker program - 6 fail-safe steps to get your humans attention while they're on their phone. 1. Sit next to them. Meow pitifully. Start purring. 2. Make your way to their lap. Extra points if you can swish your tail in their face. 3. Head butt the phone. Keep purring. 4. Use your head and paws to get them to pat you. 5. They may still be distracted. Walk all over them. Keep purring. Swish your tail all over them. Show them your butt. 6. This is that moment, the one you have been working hard for. Bite the phone. Extra points if you can hit a button. That's it my friends. Easy as that! Note: You might need some practice biting the phone, so do this while it is lying about. Use your paw to try and turn it on. Try to find the best points to bite to hit a button. Special points if you can crack the screen! #lumosisapaininthebuttattentionseeker #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Fellow Kitties, I'm talking to you! Do you feel like your humans never pay enough attention to you? I'm formulating a special program to help you get their attention! I'm calling it the "Lumos is a Pain in the Butt Attention Seeker". Today I'm sharing my steps to get your humans attention when they are on the computer. 1. Sit on the floor beside them. Look up to them with puss in boots eyes. Meow pitifully. 2. Purr loudly. Jump on the table and walk in between your human and the computer. This works better if they can't reach the keyboard. Appreciate the distracted pats. 3. Move to the side so they can reach the keyboard. Swish your tail so that it keeps hitting them in the face. This is a good opportunity to sniff the stuff that humans seem to have on the table. 4. Sit on something your human needs like their notebook. Watch them angrily. Make sure you're still purring. 5. This is the desperate moment. Keep purring and looking at them angrily. Swish your tail slightly, in a dignified manner. Then reach out and hit your human with your paw. Special points if you can bite them! That's it my friends! My fail-safe way to get our humans attention while they're on the computer. Let me know if you give it a go or have another method! 😻 #lumosisapaininthebuttattentionseeker #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Oh My Goodness!! Did you know that Daddy filmed the first time I climbed a tree? I've been rewatching this video to learn from it. I think next time I need to ask Daddy to let go of the leash so I can jump properly! And when I'm up in a tree, I'll definitely give that proud look again! And I'll refuse to jump down again (swipe ➡️ to see me refuse). #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Don't you think I'm too cute to be be mad at? I hope so! Yesterday I was in the courtyard with Mummy and she was having lunch and a fly landed on her leg. I did my butt wiggle and jumped at the fly, but in the process I left some pretty deep scratches on Mummy's leg. I'm lucky she loves me! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you sometimes get scared in your favourite places? I love being in our courtyard. It's one of my favourite places, particularly because of the weed mat! I normally meow and meow to ask to go out there. Yesterday I did that and Mummy relented. We went out and I was so excited. But then, I noticed a movement over our fence. I sat and stared at it for ages and then I got so scared that I ran to the door and asked Mummy to go inside. Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: The neighbour's tree has grown slightly and now we can see it over the fence. Lumos is still terrified of it. 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer

#Repost @theadventuresoflumosandnox with @get_repost ・・・ Noxie: Come on Lumos! Let's see what's behind the kitty litter! 😹 Lumos & Noxie's Mummy: A while ago we asked for some help about kitty litter. Thank you to everyone who helped us and we wanted to share our experience with you. We were using crystal cat litter with a litter liner bag. We found that we were going through a ridiculous amount of litter and little Lumos would tear the bags to shreds everytime he used them (he's a tad special). 😹 🐈 We have now transitioned to the @rufusandcoco @weekittycatlitter. I like that it is corn litter, environmentally friendly, clumps well, is easy to clean and we're using a lot less compared to the crystals. I'm also loving that for the first time ever Lumos is covering his business!😺 We have also stopped using litter liners. 🐈 We did the maths and realised that we used to spend 8.5 times the amount of money on cat litter in a month, so this is saving us a huge amount of money! We used to go through 48kg of crystal litter a month and now we only use 9kg of corn litter. Clearly we were doing something wrong!! 🙀 🙀 🙀 🙀 We were excited to find out that @weekittycatlitter is also sold in the US and Canada. It's not just for Aussie kitties. 🐈 We also often get asked what we do for the kitties litter while we're out and about. This Tupperware container is Lumos and Noxie's portable litter tray. We keep it in the car and open it up once we get back to the car and also take doggy bags with us just in case. 🐈 #notanad #cuddlebearlumos #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox

Lumos: I have a confession to make, I feel a bit shy and embarrassed! On the weekend I met some lovely kitties and I was a tad mean! @hellopistachio & @munchkin.on.a.mission were so friendly that they came and cuddled next to my backpack, even though I refused to come out of it. @tomonhajime and I have the same backpack so we're backpack buddies! We started the afternoon with a lovely picnic in the park. Mummy was telling everyone how silly I was so I decided it was a time for a walk, jumped out of my backpack, went exploring and was antisocial. Then I dragged Daddy on a walk too 😹 I learnt all about Pistachio, Benatar, Eubie & Evan and all about their exploring and siblings and all their training. It was so cool to hear about other Catexplorers! It got a little hot so we went to @publichousepetersham to get out of the sun. Did you know they have a resident kitty called Gizmo? Mummy went up to say Hi to him. Noxie and I spent most of the day in our backpacks being a little cranky, but after everyone left, we decided to explore the pub. In the past we would have been even crankier so we think we're slowly getting better at being around kitties. Maybe one day we'll be friends ♥️ #catexplorerpicnic #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Did you know that just because you don't reach a goal the first time around, it doesn't mean you won't manage it eventually? I'm very clumsy and sometimes I struggle with climbing. When we went to the park I decided I wanted to climb this tree. I tried once and got to the trunk but then fell. Then the second time, then the third. Then on the forth go, I got up! It was the best tree ever - the first tree I've ever climbed.♥️🌲 Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: It's no secret, Lumos isn't the smartest cookie. But he has so much perseverance. He couldn't climb on top of the fridge, so he kept trying till he could. He couldn't do a spin with his clicker training, so he tried ever day till he got it and now it's super easy for him. And then, he couldn't climb this tree, so he tried hard, again and again and he did it! I'm so proud of him and he inspires me to keep trying even if it doesn't work out the first, second, third, fourth or how many times I fall.😻 #inspiring #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Wow! Yesterday we went to the #catexplorerpicnic and met some amazing kitties - Eubie from @tomonhajime , Pistachio from @hellopistachio and Benatar from @munchkin.on.a.mission and we also met @furrymunchkinsphotography. ♥️ Everyone was so friendly, Eubie looks like she is from a painting, Pistachio is so very friendly (Daddy calls him the chilliest cat he has ever met) and Benatar has such an adorable cuddly personality. Meanwhile Noxie and I can be a bit cranky. Maybe one day we'll get better with being around other kitties. We've come a long way since our kitty days though, we used to growl a lot more! ♥️ We'll share more photos and stories over the next few days. Thank you to everyone for being so lovely to us despite our crankiness 😻 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: OMG! I had so much fun at @sydneyveganmarket ! Mummy dragged us there so she could try yummy food like this Mac & Cheese from @southernsoulsydney. But oh my! I got so much attention! Thank you to all the lovely people who came up to us and said hello and gave me a pat. It was so nice to meet so many kind people who were willing to learn about how we explore. But most of all I loved the pats and attention! Perhaps between Noxie, @adventurecat_felix , and me there needs to be a Cats of SVM account as well as @dogsofsvm ! 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Don't you just love holidays? I love holidays when we go away! When we went to Canberra, Noxie and I got the zoomsies in the middle of the night and ran around everywhere! We used Daddy as a launching pad for our jumps. Then I got really excited and happy to be able to cuddle him so I purred and drooled all over him. He sneezed a lot the next day because he is allergic to my saliva, but he still loves me 😻 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Yo! Who drank half my beer?! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: That moment when you get excited that the waiter is bringing out your yummy food, then realise it's for the next table! We had fun at @greenlionroar , though next time Lumos would probably prefer that we get a table away from the kitchen as his little nose was in overdrive due to all the yummy smells! For humans we recommend trying the Eggplant Parmigiana and the Aussie Burger! The desserts look amazing too, so we'll have to try them next time. #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Don't you just love being welcome at places? We had brunch at @paperboyconcord and they didn't even bat an eyelid at Noxie and I! I even jumped out of my backpack and took Mummy exploring while she was trying to order her Granola! 😹 #rude For other kitties, they have an awesome garden wall to walk on and their window sills are fun to walk on. We even surprised some of their other customers who were watching us from the window (swipe ➡️ to see) 😹 Mummy said her Granola and Bounty Shake were amazing and Daddy loved his baked eggs and mocha. The best bit? They're super close to heaps of parks so we can have brunch and go to parks too! 😻 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer #notanad
Lumos: What do you mean Daddy? There aren't any tuna treats at @treat.dreams ? What about me? #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Who is your best buddy? Mine is my Daddy! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Do you have a special friend? This is my special friend Mr Ducky. He doesn't make much noise, stays still and doesn't make unexpected movements. I like him. #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Do you help your humans get fit? #throwback to when I help Mummy get in shape for Mummy and Daddy's wedding. I think I did a great job! Don't you? 😻 @healthtolast maybe I can join your team now! 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Where did your name come from? I was named after the "Lumos" spell in Harry Potter. Mummy has been listening to the Harry Potter audio books again. It confuses me so much. Everytime they try to turn on a light, they say "lumos" so I run to the speaker because I think they are calling me! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Sometimes I see a birdy and I just want to jump out and get it! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Do you meow a lot when it is dinner time? I do, not much has changed since this day! 🔊 For little Lumos' meows Apologies for the quality video, but feel this is too cute not to share! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer #throwbackthursday
Lumos: Did you know that Halloween isn't that big in Australia, like it is around the world? 👻 So much so Mummy wasn't going to take a Halloween photo of us this year, but we begged her to because all our friends around the world are! We convinced her when we reminded her that it would mean she can eat the pumpkins afterwards. You see, Mummy loves pumpkin but Daddy hates it so we rarely have it at home. We told Daddy that we had to have it for our photo and now he has to eat it. #sucker #allforthegram #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer #halloween
Lumos: Don't you just hate it when your humans tease you?? When anyone touches the keys, I think it's "outside, outside, outside" time - my favourite time ever! But Mummy teased me today! She picked up the keys. I heard them from upstairs and came scrambling down the stairs and then... She just put the keys in the draw! How is that fair?!?! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Aren't treats the best? I hate getting my claws trimmed, but it means treats!! So it's not too bad! Noxie: I think everyone needs to see up my nose! Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: I ended up with so much Lumos drool on my hands during the making of this video 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #treats
Lumos: Isn't tuna the best thing ever?! Noxie: Yes! It's the best picnic meal ever! Lumos: Don't eat it all Noxie!! 🔊 For "I want tuna" meows ♥️ #cuddlebearlumos #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #toungeouttuesday #tunatuesday
Lumos: I'm the bravest kitty, so I always lead the way when we're exploring. Noxie: Isn't he silly? I always get Lumos to test the waters for me first to check if it is safe! #cuddlebearlumos #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Have you tried the magic of tiled floors? Most of our home has carpet on the floor. It's pretty fun because it's like a huge scratching floor for us. We have a little bit of tiling in our kitchen and yesterday I discovered such a fun game! Mummy and Daddy use cloth bags for the groceries. Every week when they put the groceries away, Noxie and I play in them. But yesterday I accidentally pushed one onto the tiles and off I went sliding! It was so fun! I was sliding everywhere! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer #throwbackthursday

We've been tagged by a few friends to share 10 facts about us. Sorry we're a tad late to this party! 😹 1. We're actual siblings from the same litter. We're pretty different though! 2. Lumos loves eating food, so much so that his nickname was #fatchunky . Noxie doesn't care about food much. 3. Noxie is perfectly happy playing with toys by herself. Lumos needs someone to play with him. 4. Noxie loves all forms of toy mouseys. Lumos loves wand toys. 5. Noxie usually does the cheeky and naughty things, but positions herself in a manner that it looks like Lumos did it. However, Mummy and Daddy have picked up on this trick! 6. Noxie loves exploring country areas, she loves farms, orchards and anywhere without many people. Lumos loves being the center of attention and would happily explore a busy cafe. 7. Noxie loves being a shoulder cat, while Lumos hasn't quite figured out that concept yet. Lumos has learnt how to sit on command though! 8. Lumos loves waking Mummy and Daddy up every morning with his high pitched meows and scratches at the door. Noxie prefers to say good night with a deep meow and dropping a bed time toy at the door. 9. Lumos likes to explore with Daddy, while Noxie likes to explore with Mummy. 10. Lumos loves people and cuddles, which is why his hashtag is #cuddlebearlumos . Noxie is shyer but can do some amazing gymnastics (hence #cheekygymnastnoxie ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We'd love to hear about all our amazing friends, feel free to join in ♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #catxplorer #10factsaboutme #theadventuresoflumosandnox
Lumos: You know what is amazing? Socks! I love them! I pull them off the washing line, all the time! And then I hide them everywhere! Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: Matching socks have become a luxury in our household now 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Guess what??? I'm really excited! Mummy just told me that we're going to the @catxplorer picnic in Sydney on the 24th November! I would love to see you there. ♥️ Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: If you're in Sydney, and would like to meet up with humans who explore with their kitties, feel free to come along. Details are in the link in our bio. #catxplorerpicnic #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Are your humans silly? Daddy is my favourite human to explore with! He carries me, walks with me and when I want to, he runs with me. We run on concrete, on grass, on sand and even uneven ground. The other day Daddy was walking by himself from his car to his office on flat ground. And then...he rolled his ankle! Isn't that silly? Of all the places to do it! 😹 Disclaimer: an acorn may have been involved! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: How can magpies look so delicious and be so scary at the same time? 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: I met a sheep and he kept saying "bhaaaaa" to me! I thought he was laughing at me so I got mad and hissed at it. But then Mummy told me that he was just hungry because it was his dinner time. I understand, I get super hangry and vocal at dinner time too! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer . . . We were challenged by @munros_adventures to show our #outstandingeyes . We'd like to challenge @luckyboy_dustybuster and @kate_and_caesar ♥️
Lumos: Sometimes the only thing to do is to flop in the flowers and look regal. #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Can you see the end of your nose? Today I was having fun in the courtyard, playing with my favourite weed mat. Then... I could see something on my nose! I could see it, but I couldn't get it off. I was jumping around trying to find it! And Noxie and Mummy just stood there laughing at me! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Do you like playing with bees? I love catching them! But for some reason Mummy and Daddy keep saying "Lumos stop!" when I do. I don't really understand... Aren't bees friends that we play with? 😻 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: What is something cheeky that you do? When we were in Orange, I snuck out the front door at night! But when I got outside I froze in shock - I couldn't believe I had managed it! Then I couldn't figure out what to do! Then Daddy came out and caught me, so I puffed up my tail and started running out but he caught me! I shouldn't have stopped to think what to do 😹 #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: What do you think of chickens? I love eating chicken! But boy, real chickens are super scary! They make funny noises, walk funny and look funny! But Mummy told me that because they don't look like me, doesn't mean they're scary. So I tried to be friends with them. I got used to these chickens at our Air BnB but I was a tad scared of the chickens at @heiferstationwines , they were fluffier! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Sometimes Lumos needs a cuddle because chickens are scary, scary creatures. 😹 #notatoughguyanymore #chickenaboutchickens . #theadventuresoflumosandnox #cuddlebearlumos #catxplorer
Lumos: Wow! Noxie & I had an amazing extended weekend! We went to Orange with Mummy and Daddy to celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary. I saw cherry blossoms for the very first time. They're really pretty but I wasn't allowed to eat any of them! What's the point of them being pretty if I can't eat them? We also got swooped on by a magpie. They're a little scary! Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: I used to go to Orange fairly often as a child. For our non-Aussie friends, Orange is a regional area in central New South Wales (the state we live in). It's amazing to see how Orange has evolved into a foodie and wine region. But what blew me away was how cat friendly it is. Every cafe, restaurant, winery, orchard and park we visited was cat friendly and everyone was so lovely to us. We've typically struggle to find cat friendly locations and it was so nice to have everyone being so open about us visiting with Lumos and Noxie. We had an amazing time. If you're thinking of visiting Orange, we highly recommend it. Lumos and Noxie will be sharing a few memories, experiences & antics from our trip over the next coming days. In the meantime we will be sleeping well as they are so knackered from exploring! ♥️ #notanad #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catxplorer
Lumos: Don't you find that sometimes it's super hard to train your humans? Daddy and I have been working on improving his unloading the dishwasher technique. But he isn't making much progress! I've had to up my training with him! Now I have to peer over the edge and actually look into the dishwasher. I also swipe at him if he is unloading it incorrectly! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #toungeouttuesday
