Merry Christmas :-)

We have decorated our kitchen for Christmas now,and little raindeers are lighten up outside.
The cold weather is still there, and as I am writing there is  minus 21 degrees outside.
But we have also alot of snow now,and as long we have it warmth inside, it is very beautiful.

Our tortie has sattle in now together with our other cats.
Totally 6 days,and she became good friends with the others.
So it is peace between all the cats,and everyone have so much fun together.
Ida is her best friend,but Dinky and Milla is also very fun to chase after.
She is a very creative and funny girl, and she loves to steal!! Food, bling-bling, socks, everything she finds.

There is nothing much that is happing in our cattery right now,but at Spring times we hope for some early plans to come true.
I will be visiting little Diva too after Christmas,and hope to get some nice pictures of her.
She has grown alot,and her mommy has said she is "growing out of her shoes" :-)
That is a good sign, she will probably be a very big girl,as both her parents too.
More about plans and pictures later in 2013.

We have made a Christmas card this year as well.
And this year both Milla and Ida tried on our little Santa dress.
They are not big fan of clothes,but for a short while it was ok, and enough time to make funny pictures.

One of them you can see to the left in this page, another on the top,and here is the card:

Now I will be working alot before Christmas,but in the week between  Christmas and New Year we will spend some of the days together with Tiger,Bico and their family.
We are looking very much forward to that.

While we have a breeding break, you can look at my precious grandchildren in Argentina again.
This is the smallest babies again, and they are getting more and more beautiful for every new week.
I am very proud of them and wish the distance was not so big between us.

Cold but cosy

It is silent her and COLD!!!

The cold news first - King Winter has arrived and we have had sevreal of days with low temperatures. Today it was 20 minus degrees outside,and the weatherman said it may be like this at least for the 2 next weeks.Brrrrrr!
But I must admit we have it cosy inside too :-)

Millas 2 boys moved to their homes this weekend.
Rebels new family lives a long drive from us,but it was very nice to meet them.
When Rebel arrived in his new home, their other oriental boy was a bit jelouse. But their little dog was thrilled to have a new familymember.
It will get better soon. Rebel loves his new home and family.
So Friday was our last time with him.
I wish him all the best, our big spotted little leopard.
He was neutred before he left,and his super mommy was watching all the time he was sleeping.
After a good sleep he did not notice he was neutred and it was run and fun the rest of the day.

On Sunday my heartbreaker moved. But lucky for me, I can go kiss him whenever I want.
He will have his foreverhome together with bigbrother-Tiger. Tiger need also a catfriend,and since Tiger lives in the best home I know of, it was easy to know where "Bico" also shall live.
Tiger was so happy when they came home and had HIM with them. He did welcome back his little brother with a big kiss.
Actually I will go kiss them both on Thursday,so I have not much time to miss him.

On Sunday our funny new girl also came home to us. She has been in quarenteen home with Tiger,to make alot of health checks and tests. Everything was super! We did not doubt it,but just to be sure.
Aliyah, or Ozzie what is the plan she will be called here, who just comes if we call her Daisy.... is a funny girl.
She is THE tortie, with a great personality. She is a very helpful girl, who loves to steel our food or help us wrapping in Christmasgifts.
She sleeps with me in my bed at nighttime,and it is ok for my other cats to share the bed with her.
Not bestfriends yet,but they get along great. I am so proud of my cats. And poud if Aliyah too. She is soon 6 month old, so "be close friends" takes normally a bit more time for a young fertile lady,than if she arrives with us as a baby.
She is so outgoing,purring and naughty and VERY talkactive :-)

At some extra beautiful news in the end.
My beloved grandchildren again. From the youngest litter this time,as the breeder has not found time to make new pictures of all of them yet. But don't worry. I will show them too.

This blueticket boy is a dream, he is amazing. I hope Maria decide to keep him.

And the only siamese in the litter,I love his head :

And their beautiful sister :

Naughty tortie!!

It is not a secret that I love torties. The more colourful the better!
Last weekend me and my good friend and cooperator in my breeding programme drove many many km to the boarder between Germany and CZ - a very nice town  - Dresden.
It was a long trip. First we had to take the boat to Denmark - and then our highway trip started.
Actually almost 1500  km - ONE way - they say catpeople can be crazy, I have a feeling there might be some truth in those words :D

The trip down felt like few hours, I think it felt a bit longer for my friend and her sister.
Because I took a pill on the boat to not get boat-sick....... I am in nature a person with a lovly sleeping-heart, but with the pill I slept almost 10h at once.....

In Desden we had some few hours to spend before some very nice people did meet us. Petra and Martin, the breeders of our newest treasure.
The weather was not the hottest, so it was not a long meeting. But a very nice one.
And with them little Aliyah came too.

We had with us a big cage with enough room for a bed and a toilet,and she have almost the same sleeping heart as me, so the long trip back home...... still 1500km!!! went without any problem.
We had some breaks where she eat some food and went on sightsing in the car, happy and purring and could not decide of she wanted to kiss the people in the front seats or me in the back.

Our little colourfull sweetheart is extremly colourful, and for tortie-holics she is purrrrrfect.
Both me and Carolynn love her colour.
But when it comes to photographing, she will be a "hard nut to crack". It is late Autumn and not the best weather to make good and naturally pictures of her. And because of her funny big red spot in  her face, it is even more difficult.
But shame on them who gives up :-)  I am sure by the Spring with some luck we can get nice outdoor pictures of her.

Since she came home she has been living with Carolynn. She has done her health checks with the Vetrinarian actually today, and her health is 100% good.
She will soon move home to me and my cats.
In Carolynn's home she is taken well care of - humans,a little dog and the most patient and friendly cat in the world - our Tiger:

First she shall grow up,then we can plan her future in the our cattery. .
Aliyah is in co-ownership together with Carolynn, and we are both looking forward to much fun together.
In the future the boys will live with Carolynn and the girls will live with me. Then we can have 100% controll and have much joy each. The boys will sometimes also visit us for a day or two, for socialization and for matings.

Aliyah will have a new home-name. And to make my son very happy, we have decidet to call her Ozzie here at home. With a little twist in the spelling,it is a bit more girly. He loves Ozzy Osbourne.
And our Ozzie loves to talk and sing,so we think it is a good name for her :-)

I am writing and writing, but maby it is time to introduce our little girl with pictures?
All pics are made by Carolynn - thank you!!

Ozzie is a big girl,she is super elegant all over, with an amazing profile.
If I compear her to my cats,she has Fayette's body and tail and Idas head.
Her coat is also supershort.

Thank you so so much , dear Petra and Martin for letting us have her.
We love her dearly!

My beloved grandchildren and some home-news.

About 1.5 years ago, a little charming siamese boy moved from us to Argentina.
He became a very spoiled boy in no time. For me he will allways be the little bluepointed charmer,but he is now a grown up man.
Some weeks ago he became daddy to lots of beautiful babies, in 2 different litters.
They are all so beautiful and I am so happy for his human mommy, and I am  proud "grandma"!

I wished I lived much closer now,so I could go kiss them many times a day.

These are from the oldest litter. 2 naughty tortie girls and their brother. First one is the boy.

And here are the youngest. 1 girl and 2 boys. The girl  is the one in the middle.

I wish you all the best with all these wonderful babies, Maria!
Give their beautiful mothers a big kiss from me and tell them that they are doing a great work.

For Maria's cattery :

This was my frist secret :-)

My second secret arrived safely in Norway yesterday.
She is a blacktortie oriental girl with a big personality.She will be co-owned with my very good friend Carolynn. More about her soon.

I have at least one more secret,but 2 secrets in one day is really enough, right? :-)

While we was picking up our new girl, Millas babies has been visiting their big brother, Tiger.
I did not want to leave them home "alone" with less humans around them.
He do as usual a great job.
His smaller siblings loves him to peaces!

Diva has now left for her new permanent home in Stavanger. She will have a family with children,other cats and a dog. I am so happy she found just the perfect home and they love her so much.

Rebel Kisser will also move to Stavanger,but not yet. It is nice for both me and for Milla that they do not leave everyone at the same time. Rebel Kisser will also have lots of children in different ages to play with, another oriental cat and and dog.
In the meanwhile, I can make some more pictures of him soon.

Little "Bico" will not move longer than to Tigers home. We will not decide his destiny yet,because we love him so much. And Tiger need a friend too, so what is better than a little brother?

The trio is growing

We have some exiting news we want to tell you about.......soon:-)

I can say A about one of the little secrets, because they will soon get published by the owner. And the word is like love in my heart : Kitten-Grandchildren!!!! They are so so beautiful, just wait until you see them. Actually I wish I could just take with me a big bag and take all of them with me home:-)

But now, the happy trio!
About our little kittens,who are not so little anymore.
We have found wonderful homes for 2 of them,and probably the third one as well. I am crossing fingers that it will be his home.
It is so fun with their names. They really live up to them all 3.

Our little precios "Bico" will soon move to his big brother, Tiger. There he will stay for a while,to keep him company. His forever home as a happy pet will probably be in England some time next year. Hope Tigers family can let her go in time, it was a terrible dessision for me with this absolutly heartbreaker.
He had to fight some extra when he was a little baby, so he is my very special little one. Actually not so little,but he will allways be my baby.
He is for sure a human-kitten, who can not get enough of humans,and he loves to sit on the shoulder to get the best view:-)

This will be the last pictures of him from our home,because,but I will for sure show you pictures also when he moves to Tiger.

And then it is little Diva. Diva will stay in our breeding programme but will not live in our home.
It is not often I use host-homes for the girls,but  this feels very right and safe.
Her new home will have cat-friends,a dog and children,beside a sweet human-mommy as well.

And at last, Rebel Kisser, the biggest kitten in this litter. He is a charmer who really love action, the more the better. He make funny sounds when he eat something good or if the toy is extra fun.
He is not the big talker in the litter,but it looks like it on the pictures:-)

And just a bonus picture at last. You can almost hear "Bico" purring out of the screan :-)

7 w old

We have had some wonderful days here, with Tiger on visit
And as I hoped and expected, he just fit directly in with the others. Since he still are a baby in Millas eyes, he was one of her babies of course.

Tiger seems to have a great time together with his feline family again, and he has been a great big brother and naughty babysitter.
It felt empty after he went home again.

The babies are growing up too quickly. And while Tiger was here,they got more space to run in.
But their mommy was calling from the bigger livingroom,so they learned very quick to climb over.
Since there was no pee-accident,they have now both the kithen and 2 livingrooms to run in.

The happily trio are just so adorable that they almost break my granny-heart.
I really do not want anyone of them to move out.
Of course again it is one of the boys who are my little extra one,and I have not quite decidet where he shall live. I should soon do it, if not I might forget to sell him:-)

Our little Bico-baby is ...... well, I really do not know yet. Think he will end of as lilac spottet. If I have doubts when he is 11 w old, I will get a DNA test.
He is the absolutly most outgoing little one, who loves everyone,and could for sure just jump in any purse and go happy home with them.A talker too. He is also my special one.

His brother is a little wrestler who get more and more clear spotts every day. He is also a little purring kisser,who loves to snuggle.

At last,their sister. She is a little smaller than her brothers,because she has not decidet if she want to eat solid food  or hang in mommys milkbar. If she could chose,she would chose the last option:-)
She eat some wetfood,so we hope it is a matter of time before she eat just everything like her brothers.
She also loves to talk, and she is a sofa-cat and shoulder cat. She would be happy if she could be carried around all day,like little princess sometimes demands:-)

The boys stick together all the time,and I think Diva is happy for that,because she is a little lady,and want to be treat like one too:-) She loves her brothers when they has got rid of some of their "macho" energy:-)

A bonus picture of Ida. She has grown up to be a very delightful young lady. She has allways her happy personality but her extremly naughty kitten-days, then are just half like they were.
She has become so grown up with this litter,and she loves Millas babies very much.
So when it is time for her babies sometimes next year,hopefully, she will be a great mommy.

5 weeks old

The babies were 5 w old last Friday,but I simply forgot to update our blog.
The little kitten-run was just  placed in the kitchen to be taken away again:-) Diva is a little climber and a very good one too!
So now they have 3 toilets and the whole kitchen. Diva thinks actually she is ready to have the whole house now....
Creative and naughty :-)
It's for sure a very fun litter, 3 totally different personalities.
Diva is the wannabe-tortie,courius and run her own rules when she is up to something.
Rebel Kisser is the sweetheart who loves to kiss and couddle.
Little Bico is thinking alot,loves food and are very sweet.
And now I am not sure of his colour again. Think I have the perfect name for him, tough:-)

We did take some pictures,but the kittens and their fantastic willing to sing has not change much from their 4 w:-)
I am wondering if they will continue to sing on their 6 w pictures too?

News also this week, is that their half-brother, Tiger is visiting us.
His other human-family are spending their Autumn-holiday in England.
He lost his siamese-brother earlier this Autumn,so he was more than welcome to come on visit.
He is so sweet and social, so all my other cats think it's ok for him to stay here. I think Ida want him to stay more than 10 days :-) He came on Sunday and she has found her new best friend. Ida has a special thing for boys - they are so much funnier to play with.
I did visit him not so long ago, but it is together with his mommy I can see how big he has became.
So high on legs, long body and his fantastic silky fur.

I am wondering to change some mating plans too,but I am not sure yet.
