Happy neuter life and new plans

Our sweetheart Penny will not be used in breeding.
She have had some heavy calls and should really have been mated - but she will not let any boy come near her.

Since the calling are so heavy and Penny is a very slim girl, I will not be gambling with her at all.
I will not sit with a superskinny cat because of heavy callings who maby gets pyometra and then will be laying on the operation table very sick - that is my worst nightmare because Penny is our sunshine.

When Penny is not calling she is snuggling with everyone,also the boys - maby she just don't want to have her own babies? 2 siblings are in breeding in other catteries,so the lines can be brought back later .

Instead we will mate Pennys halfsister Fayette, who have the same elegance and personality- God forbid a little more naughty:-)

A picture of two very naughty girls in the end, who are having fun in the November-sun :-)

Alot of beautiful cats were in hard competition. In my eyes the competition was especially hard in the Youngster class 6-9 month.All of them were worth the tittle.

He is a very beautiful cat and very much alike his sister.
At Saturday he was Nominated and we were crossing fingers hard for him.

At Sunday we were waiting and still crossing fingers, and he won!!!
So now he got the tittle World Winner 2011.

HUGE congratulation to the breeders Yvonne and Wilhelm at S*Cross-Bow Crest and his owner Anna Gerbert at S*Limericks.

Autum on the porch

I love the Autum if it is sunny outside,and today it was one of those days.
First today I want to share pictures of Fayette. She is developing to be a extremly elegant girl and her eyes are dark sharp green.

Milla became friends with the others in only 4 days and I think she love her new life here in Norway. She is getting more beautiful every day.

The most difficult choice of my life:-(

The couple of last days have been really like my worst nightmare.
Our funny,charming and sweet oriental girl, Sushi broke her leg Easter 2011. At the age of 7 month old.
I want allways to give my cats a chance if it’s possible, and it also depend on the cat and the prognosis.
But Sushi is such a brave girl with a strong personality.
She got a heavy fixarator in her foot,and the healing prosess did start.
The recovery took almost 3 month.
The first weeks she was living in my bedroom,and later she moved down with the others.
Especially her half sister, Pearl was her best comfort in all the period.

When she was fully recovered again I was so happy for her. We all were.
A couple of days ago, Sushi and the rest of our girls was racing in the livingroom and had a real fun time.
They do that,every evening.
But sudden Sushi was limping, and yes, the same foot was broken again:-(
I have spoken with some of my closest friends,and there is so many different opinions.
But I needet all those opinions, and are very greatful to have such good friends close to me.
The only thing I did decide there and then, was that Sushi shall not have a new operation with maby even a longer recovery period.
Cats are the masters of hiding their pain,and I can just imagne what she was going trough after the first operation.
Even with pain medicaments.
One round is worth it, but not 2 – for me – thinking of all the pain for her.
When 1 of 3 possibilities was not an option, I am standing back with either amputation of her bad leg, or put her to sleep.
I have search the internet for all the info I could get,and are back to 50/50, of everything I have been reading about it.
My heart wants one thing,and my head says something else.
I have also been spoken with the Vet who helped Sushi the first time.
Her best advide was a new operation. But no no no!!! I do not want Sushi to go trough it one more time.
An amputation is less expensive, but there is both positive and negative sides with that too. And we talked for a long time.
It is better for an animal to loose a back leg,then a front leg,since the weight point of the body is over 60% on the front legs.
But some animals can feel fantoom pain,some cats will develop a forever sadness.
And of course everything can go very well.
Every operation is a risk, no operation is 100% safe,and Sushi seems to be born under an unlucky star.
It is not often a leg will be re-broken like this, but the upper back leg is a heavy bone to heal.
I have spoken again with some of my friends,even watched videos of 3 legged cats on youtube.
They seems all so happy.
But it feels very wrong for me. To loose an ear or both,the tail, or a toe, even all the teeth, that is one thing,but to loose a leg?
I know when Sushi broke her leg the firs time, we did not have time to think. We had to act. Then it was trying to save the leg,but if the operation went wrong on the table, please amputate.
At the same time, I am wondering if an amputation is the best for an animal or the best thing to do for the owner.
Noone want to be sepparated with the one we love,somethimes we think and act with our hearts and somethimes with our heads.
Somethimes with both.
Because of this happening, Pearl will not move out as a happy neuter yet.

I am back home.
My last visit with the dentist and Sushi was with me.
Sushi has been snuggle in my lap,she was purring and watched me carefully with hope in her eyes. But hoping for what?
A hope to grow old with me,the only human mommy she have ever known, or the hope of let the pain go away?
But maby I did make the right choice?
The Vet told me,even I knew, that cats lives right now, they do not think of the future. They don’t know what we are planning for them.
Sushi did not know I was taking her with me to the hospital to let her pain go, forever.

I hope Sushi will be reborn in a healthy body someday so I can have her back in my arms and kiss her, telling her how much I love her.
I hope she understood I wanted to best for her,and not the best for me.
I hope she is a happy angel,who can watch over all her friends,and even get some new friends in heaven.
I hope she had a happy life here with me,even it was too short.
Breeding is ups and downs,but this time it is the regular person, not the breeder in me who is writing and has made the final choice.

I have been crying all day and I know I will regret the rest of my life for my dessision.
This time I made the dessision with my head,and my heart is forever bleeding.
Rest in Peace, our wonderful brave girl, Sushi. of August 2010 – of August 2011.
Your life became too short,but I will never regret that I kept you as a kitten. You gave me so much in all thinkable positive ways.
I did let your pain go,and I hope you can forgive me since I also took your life away from you.
You will forever stay alive in my heart, and in every tear drop.
Heaven has brough another angel home.

Fayette 18 weeks

Our sweetheart,Fayette is still hanging around us :-)
I love her more and more each  day goes by,both on her inside and outside.

Because of very sad circumstances,Fayette will stay with us.
I will be forever greatful to the breeder who suppose to have her in short time. It was hers suggestion.
We will anyway cooperate in future.

Here are a couple of pictures taken today :

A little update of many things

At the moment it is very silent in our Cattery.
One of Major and Maidens babies has left to her fosterhome,where she will be living until her owner is ready to take her home.
The best home a future happy neuter could have.
Siouxsie Sioux will be living in Hungary with a very good friend of mine. She is study on the Vetrinarian School down there. Her sister have 2 cats from me in the past,and her mother has also 1 cat from me.
Siouxsie Sioux will be living with 2 very sweet orientals.
It became so silent when she left. Because she is a clone of her sweet father,and talks and purrs all the time.

Her sister Fayette will be staying here a little longer,but sometimes in the end of the Summer she will also move abroad.
She love beeing a single child,and get alot of attention from all her babysitters:-)
Both the girls has developed a very nice elegance and got wonderful green eyes. I am very pleased with them,and both got super temper.
Fayette has become more and more alike her halfsister Penny in her attitued,even the same voice.

"Sushi", pedigree name (N)Attack's Devils Daughter broke her foot end of Easter. It was a nasty break but she has been such a brave girl for sevreal of weeks. But she was lucky after all. Her break up could be fixed with a fixarator, so she did not need to be put in a cage with totally no movements for 6 weeks. She have been able to walk on her food all the time.
This would not been possible without one suuuuuuuper vetrinarian at Sørlandets Dyreklinkk , Kristin and her team. We are forever  greatful for all the help.
Sushi had the fixarator on her foot for 10 weeks. This breed is very caring for eachother,but her closest friend of them all is her halfsister Pearl.
This Monday 4th of July she was fully recovered!!

At the breeding front we will see what happens. Our SYS boy, Leo has been mated 2 of the girls here. We don't know if he is ready to make babies yes, he is only 1 year old.
In next week he will be put on the Suplerion Chip,so he will be temporary neutred. We have made that dessision because he stress alot and have no time to coudle.
If we will not have babies after him this year,we will have later.

Our gentle and sweet boys, Omar and Disco will arrive with us in end of Summer,so we will have some exiting combinations this Winther if the cats agrees with my plans.

We are also waiting for 3 more PRA tests,and hopfully we know in end of next week. Crossing fingers :-) The result will be published later on my page and  Pawpeds .

And a new wonderful creature will hopfully move in to us later this year as well.
All I can say, it is a girl. When and from who, will be kept as a secret until my dreams comes true :-)

This was a little update for this time.
Have a wonderful Summer everyone.

Kittens 12 weeks

On Sunday the babies are 12 weeks old. Both the girls has developed very harmonic personalities. They are very similar to Maidens litter last year,so I am very pleased with them. Outgoing,naughty and very courius.
And finally the eye colour is getting stronger and stronger,and GREEN. I love their eye colour very much.
Siouxie is the big charmer in the litter,and she talk and talk and are so sweet. She want to be with us everywhere and love to help out. I know a charmer like that,and that is her father, Major.
And she simply adore plushed toys. Big or small,no difference, they can be carry around and grrrrrrr,noone dear to steel them from her:-)
Fayette is the typey model, so elegant, she looks like a black shiny porcelain statue. She have a little more stubborn personality, and know very well what she loves and what she dislike. I belive she will be  very much alike her mother in both type and personality. A wannabe tortie, but I love them :-)

11 weeks on Sunday

Another week has gone, and our sweethearts are 1 week older. It is getting closer and closer for their  moving out day, and that feels a little sad. At least I have the whole June and half part of July  with them.
Today I tried to make some pictures outside. We have sun and lovly weather,but it is a little windy.
The light in the pictures is the result of a very pink iglo bed and the sun. They have not change in to chocolate silvers :-)

The eye colour has started to change now. In doors they have a very nice green colour,but I have not caught it on my camera yet.

Maiden loves her babies very much,and is a super mommy. She was a super mommy on her earlier litter as well,but since she have only 2 babies this time,she have so much more energy to enjoy them all the time. Even if they are only 2,they have manage to give her alot of grey hairs:-) She still think sometimes they should listen more to her,sometimes she think also they don't know to walk properly. Strict but very loving. Her babies do not listen so much to any of her advices,but that's another story :-)

And yes, here is some of todays pictures :
