12 w very soon.

When there is just 2 kittens among the adults, we don't notice them in the same way.
They learned very early to use te toilet, and after that ,we didn't need to have a toilet in every room they went. There has only been one big kitten toilet in the kitchen, just for them , and no accident outside it.
When they got to the age where they climbed over the last kitten-fence they became sofa couddlers on fulltime.
They love it there, either it is to wrestle with eachoter, with the other adults, or the dogs. And they love to crawl up in our lap.
The only place they haven't been in, is my bedroom, because they are more naughty late at nights :-) When the night comes, me and the dogs are hiding in the bedroom, to get our beautysleep.

They are both very funny and sweet kittens. The boy has a very special place in both my and my sons heart, It is always the boys ;-))
The girl is very charming too, and she as a special love for both the dogs. Reminds me a bit of Fantasy, so she might think she is half part dog and half part cat.



We are not 100% sure of where they will move yet, if the girl will move , we hope especially for her,it will be to a home with a gentle dog. If the boy will move to a pet home, it will most likly be to Stella and Ray's litter brother.

And yes, they finally had their names. We decide to give them names after blue party drinks.

Let me introduce you to :
Attack's  Bitter Blue - the boy :




 And his sister :

Our youngsters are growing up to beautiful ladies.

It has been a while since I have been updating about Pepsi and Stella.
Pepsi is now 8 month old and Stella is 7 month old.
Since Pepsi arrived she joined the litter after Tiger and Dotty.
We decidet to keep Stella back then, and they became best friends in few days.

Stella has big relatives, and noone think she is still a kitten,  because she is growing and growing.
She has still her beautiful green eyes and her lovley spots.
Sometimes she talkes a bit, but most of the time she is a silent and very friendly girl.

Pepsi is getting more and more red colouring in her fur and she has still her beautiful shiny green eyes.
We were actually a bit worry about her a period, because she was just arms and legs, so thin, so she has been checked by our city Vets from top to toe with a bloodsample as well.
They found out she is complitly healthy, she has just so much energi and are high and low like a duracell bunny with an apetite like a horse!
She is high on legs and very elegant, and such a sweety.

They make a great team - it's a joy to have them.








Stella who looks so much like her daddy ( and grandma). Noone is perfect, but I love her so much.



Lol. The bone was discovered after the pictures were taken,



And Pepsi - looks a bit evil and naughy for sure. She is not evil at all, but  naughty - yes!

The blueberries are now 9 w old

I have been so buisy that it has been over a month since I made some new pics of our little twins.
But they are doing very well.
Prefering the milkbar, so we have a huge work convincing them that solid cat food is tasty. No litters are the same, some are food addicted from 4 w, others have all the time in the world.
The boy is a better eater, but his sister is slowly getting there too. She prefers our food, but not all are good for a furball to eat.
It doesn't help that there is plenty of willing aunties in the house, and Fantasy has even start her own milkbar, because she can't help it , she is so in love with them.


Fantasy!! This is not your baby!




The finder is the winner ( and the keeper) ..... I don't care, he loves me too!



Baby boy : I should be clean by now ?




"Little" Auntie Stella ( soon 7 month) loves the babies too. Treat them rough like toys combine with lots of love. But they love her.



Both Fantasy and Stella are grandchildren of our beloved angel, Milla. Milla had always plenty of love for all babies born in this home - it is so wonderful to see that this love and caring has been passed on to the 2.generation as well.


Mommy Ziva get one of her babies sometimes :-))



So as you can see, there is plenty of love in this house - the babies get spoiled and kissed by 2 and 4-legged all the time.

I made some new pics of them the other day.
In real they are very much alike eachother, but the girl as a bit rounder eyes.
1 month ago the girl was the photogenic one, this time it the boy.

The boy :





The girl :





I don't know when the next update will come, because I have chosen this year,like last, to not have any Summer Holiday before August. But hopefully another update in July, and then with some names. We can't  call them "The Blueberries" forever ;-)

Ainur has been here some weeks, and finally some of the girls started to call. He has mated them, so time will tell, if the suprelorin chip is out of his system. Maybe we will have some new kittens to spoil and love this Autumn.

Spring babies

It has been a while since the last update - but really nothing special has happened, that is related to the cattery beside our plans, waiting and longing for new familymembers.


3 weeks ago Ziva and Charlie became proud parents again for some beautiful babies.
She was bigger than last time, so I was so sure they wanted to see the daylight a bit earlier than last time.

So we waited and waited......




But no kittens came , not until between day 68/69 again.
Both Daisy and Stella was good suporters until she was ready.





1 boy and 1 girl came, and then Ziva had a longer break, but not as long as last time.
When the birth started again, a big girl was stillborn, and right after a tiny little boy.
Very sad about the dead girl, but we are always greatful when we can avoid C-section. ( I have only had 2 in in total since 2003)

The birth was over, and Ziva was so proud of her new little family.


The first week went by, they were still 3 babies, but the last born tiny boy did not want to gain any weight at all, it had been still since he was born, even both me and Ziva helped him.
So after this week we decidet to put him to sleep. It was not an easy dessision, because he was so full of life.

So therfor there is just 2 babies - the two firstborn - strong and happy.

They lived their first week on the floor, in my bedroom. Week 2, Ziva decidet again my bed was the puuuuurrrrrfect place to stay.
I had no other choice then to move the birth cage - a catmothers rule is the only rule... :D




Today they moved down to the kitchen  - and I found out it was time to make a presentation of the beautiful babies.
This time we have 2 bluepointed babies. They have the same charm as their bigger brothers  - "Saturday and Sunday"  - so I know they will be just pure joy..... and a handful.


The girl - very bossy and talkactive, but so sweet at the same time :




The boy - the softy of those two, at least now. With such a bossy sister he might have no other choice :D




And together.






PURE CFA siamese litter.

The proud parents again.

Daisy has moved to Finland   - and Georgia to USA.
I will miss them dearly - but both got wonderful new homes. Good luck ladies!






******************************************************************


This was all for now,
It has been some very hot Summer days here in South Norway - so beside working , we are chilling the best we can.




The dogs arranged a Beach Party together with their neighbour dog. With almost 30 degrees it was a good idea!

2 neutred studs,plans + last pics of the OSH siblings together.

During the last weeks alot has happened here in our Cattery.

Gabriel our beautiful white boy has been neutred and after Carolynn did a real screaning - we found a good forever home for him.
He has now two ( also neutred of course) girlfriends. A sphynx and a bambino. We wish him all the best in his new forever home
We will  continue his lines with his two white daughters.




We decidet also to neuter Leo, since there never came any kittens from him. And when he was neutred we found the answer of why he never produced any babies.  There was extra thickness in his spermatic cord making him infertile.
Leo is such a beautiful and sweet boy, but he will now have his foreverhome with our friends who has had him as a host cat all the time.




When it comes to the classic pattern, we have thankfully another beautiful boy who can produce babies.
Jarda!
He has now mated Fantasy, so we are crossing fingers!!
Jarda lives together with Leo, so I have not seen him as much as Carolynn. But after having Jarda on visit, I am amazing of his wonderful clear and clean pattern, and his elegance!! Wow - when we strech him, he never ends!
So we are very courious of what the future will look like for future offspring. Other than that, he is nonstop-purring boy - just as we want our studs to be like.





Ziva has also been mated with Charlie again. With only two kittens and two kittens that was often found in Dotty's milkbar - Ziva was not worn out.

So if everything goes well, and if both our girls gets pregnant - we will see new babies during Spring.
We are cossing fingers, 2 mothers are always the best option for this breed - since they love company and sharing babies.


Earlier this week did also Dotty move to her final destination - her new home - decidet a long time ago - before Tiger fell totally in love with her ;-)
Her babies are well  taken care of by Ziva,Fantasy,Cover and Sparkling - so lot's of love and caring.
Even from our dogs .





The blue siamese boy after Ziva and Charlie was the first baby to leave us - and he is doing great with his new lovely family . He gets spoiled and have people to snuggle with 24/7 and love his St.Bernard brother.
The seal siamese baby was the second to leave us - and he did also walk inside his new home with his tail in the air and charmed everyone. Loved his new parents and feline family - took them by charm - and he has alot of that!

We are so happy and proud when babies are moving to a new home is a peace of cake.

Here is the last pics of the OSH siblings together under my roof.

Amber - the kitten in the litter with the most beautiful eyes and a never-ending tail.Her look is naughty and her look is not lying :D One of her speciality is to kill my fake plants and is chewing on my books if I don't pay her most of the attention.   She will during April move to Bergen and live with a siamese girl - future very spoiled girls - I have a strong feeling of that:



Christian - he was so much alike his daddy when he was around 2 weeks old - but he has developed into another lookalike relative - if you can remember a boy we called "Stitch" - a son after Jimmy and Ozzie. Christian will be a huge boy. He has a Vet appointment very soon, and not so long after that he will move to Stavanger to be the charming Prince. He is a very lovable purring boy.



Ray : Little Ray will not be moving longer than back to his daddy Tiger. He has been checked by our Vet - he is still little and need more time to grow.  He is no  longer a picky eater we see changes from day to day.  When he has an optimal size he will be moving to his forever home.  He has a special place in everyone hearts - so noone minds having him around  a little longer.



And then to the 3 last girls - who will be seen at the show bench later on. At least Daisy and Georgia.

Daisy -  Daisy will move to Dotty's breeder in Finland and continue in her breeding programme.
She will get a huge kitten - she is elegant filled with muscles - but we hope she will stop growing some day :D  Daisy is also the naughty kind - and she has a special bond with Cookie - our female GSD. She is also very helping around the kitchen. Making food and tasting after - she is not picky :D She got very satisfied after we told her that her new mommy is an exellent chief hi hi.



Golden Wishes - our keeper girl.  When she was born I knew she has to stay - regardless what she would developed in to.  But she developed in to a beautiful girl.
Not perfect - who is? But she has my favorite colour,my favorite pattern and she looks so much like daddy when he was a baby.
And after all these weeks - she has become besties with both my dogs. A huge pluss - because it is so important that my cats get along well with them. This girl eats with Cookie and wrestle with Jesse. She has the same conection to the dogs as Fantasy has - it is a joy to watch.


At last - Georgia - This girl I had plans for a long time to keep - but we change our mind a few weeks ago. I don't run down all the catshows - but this girl is also very beautiful, and she deserved to be shown - if she likes it in time.
She is very elegant and beautiful.





It has been a real joy to also follow this litter week from week.
Getting to know them and see all their great qualities.
I love the whole litters eye colour - it has developed so nicly. And I love their pattern.
All of them are a bunch of sofa-snugglers so nothing to say about their temperament either.
I wish all of them who shall move to their new homes soon all the best.
I will kiss and couddle them some more days - before they will be moving back to daddy Tiger.
Thankfully Golden Wishes will move home quickly again - after her Vet stuff has been done.


After the pics was taken - it was good with a little siesta in the sun -all of them beside Ray who  had eating plans after - so he rushed fast in to the kitchen .
Pepsi snuggled up insted in the crowd.
