11 weeks old + Pepsi

Today it is 1 w since 1 Pepsi moved in to us, and it has been a joy since day 1.
She is so happy go lucky - fit perfectly in to our group of friendly cats.

I have always had a special love for solid black torties, but it has been some time since we had one in our home.  The last tortie we breed moved to US- and really - I wished I could clone her, so we could have one at our home as well.
So then we decidet to go look for a new tortie again.
It had to be a nice girl of course, but with a new pedigree for us. There were some beautiful torties here and there, but either it was the pedigree or their were silver. Silver is beautiful, but it is not the right thing for our cattery.
I had spottet Pepsi at her breeders HP many times, at so many times I tought maybe I should email her.
But one day, may weeks later I did that - and now she is with us. We are so greatful that little Pepsi could move in to us knowing so many wanted her.
THANK YOU, Linda ,for the wonderful little babygirl.

Pepsi is a little love bug, and it is easy to love her - even all the cats said that.
She snuggle up with everyone, and Ziva has adopted her as her new baby. That was not a surprise , Ziva loves all babies, regardless where they comes from.

And if any breeders are concerned about viruses and so, well she has been at the Vet and made many health tests before she moved to us. Then stayed some time with Carolynn. Carolynn picked Pepsi up herself, and come to her breeders home ,were everything was lovely. Pepsi comes from a clean home and only lived with healthy cats.
Our homebreed kittens got their first ( nasal) vaccine in the age of 6 and 9 w.

Last weekend we decidet that little Ray should move to Carolynn some weeks earlier than planned.
He is our little picky boy, so he need a kitchen that is open more regulary than here. ( I am working alot in periods)
His Daddy Tiger adopted him right away, and he can play also with Ziva's siamese boys who is still at Carolynn's home.
I miss little Ray, he is still a little by size, but he has a big heart of gold.

The other sibligs are  home making alot of naughtiness.
They are now running freely around in the first floor and loves it.
Cookie loves playing With the babies and Jesse too.

We have put back our exellent gate in the kitchen, so all the kittenfood is safe from always hungry dogs ;-)

Think it is good that Pepsi joined us, because now they can snuggle two and two , so Daisy don't
need to split herself ;-)

And the two most naughty siblings sticks together :

And now the 11 w pics :

Tiger and Dotty's babies are now 10 w old

Another week, and already 1 week older.
Not long until they shall meet their father for the first time. But there is no rush for them to travel to daddy yet, since their siamese "brothers" is getting ready for their new homes soon. One of them got its rabies vaccine yesterday, and the other has booked an apointment at the Vet for his neutering in end of this month.

Today is Carolynn visiting us again, and the siamese tvins will join us as well. It is good for them to get used to driving car and I really don't mind having them on a night-visit , because I miss them.

We have had some really cold Winter days here - almost minus 20 in the mornings, and now is the temperatures on the + side again, so all the snow is smelting. Typical South-Norwegian Winter.  I am counting down for Spring ;-)

The oriental babies thrives in the smallest livingroom, but we have sometimes visit of some of them in the biggest livingroom.
As long as Dotty is with us, we have to keep the livingrooms appart, since she is still not 100% safe on the dogs. But that is not a problem for the kittens, then they are visiting the dogs instead.
Cookie is always gentle, but Jesse tries his very best. I am always close by when he is with the babies. He has still not understand his size difference compeared to them , and all he want is to play,kiss and couddle.
Both my dogs are so friendly and loving, so with lots of supervision, of course they can be a little together. The more love the better.

10 w Pictures


And look , all 6 together.

Not much News to write about this week, but just waint until next weekend. I got a beautiful little surprise. :-)

9+12 w - Bye bye siamese babies.

In just few days the kittens are 9 and 12 weeks old.
I am just updating a few days  before this time, because I will be working this weekend.
It takes alot of time to make pictures of 8 wild kittens who has better things to do, than sitting still, so I want to have the few hours  daytime with the dogs this weekend instead. And then there is lot of snuggle time for the babies when I come home from work, since I never go to bed early.

On Monday both the siamese boys will be leaving me :-(
They are 12 w old, and got the first Vet appointment in Kristiansand the same day.
Nicholas is bringing them safe by the train in the early morning, before he is on his way to his school.
Carolynn will be meeting them, and then it is time for her home to get a little happy gray hairs :D
But I will for sure miss them, dearly.
They are so sweet and funny and loving, so they will both forever have a huge pawprint in my heart. Some kittens are just extra special , and those two boys are that kind of kittens.
Only one thing to say , lucky future owners.

(Mommy Ziva will continue to help Dotty with her babies and the siamese babies will get alot of love,attention and learning from Tiger,Ainur and CO - we never ship them out to new owners 12 w old. )

12 weeks old :

Yesterday the kittens, and the dogs got a huge box of the postman.
It was alot of wetfood, but there were snacks and toys in it too.
The new kitten playpen became very popular.

The dogs got a huge pk with Buffalo ears and was very greatful.
Fantasy loves dogtreats and understood it right away when I opened it, and she came down from my bedroom in a second.

The orientals 9 weeks old :

Our Christian is still looking for his forever home. We got alot of inquires but it hasn't been the right one yet.

If you consider an oriental cat from us :

Do you know the breed? They are special, actually the best ;-) They are active,playful,naughty,helpful,talkactive,funny and charming and loving. They stick to the family and their friends often like glue.
We want our kittens to have another cat friend in the household, preferly an active type.
Kept indoors or outdoors in safe enviroments if the temperatures are nice.
Beeing a part of the family.

Christian is a happy purring boy with amazing clean pattern, if you would like a little mini-leopard ;-)

8 + 11 w old - we will keep a special boy.

Winter - has been gray outside all week. Gray will it also be in the weekend, so it is not easy to make pics of the kittens at all.
Do I miss the sun? Yes!
This week the quality of the pics are terrible.
Thankfully they are all beautiful in real.

The kittens has been in the smallest livingroom for a week now, and they love it.

They are getting to know my other females little by little. And Cookie of course, she is visiting them often.
Jesse has to wait some more weeks, because I am afraid of his weight. Jesse think he has the same size as the kittens tough ;-) Fantasy and White Cover is snuggling with him all the time, so he get the chance to kiss cats when he wants.

The fireplace is active all the time I am home from work, and noone complains ;-)

There has been a big change this week.
We have decidet to keep little Ray in our breeding program instead of Georgia.
It has been lots of thinking back and forth, because Geogia has always been my favorite nr 2. She is everything her sister Golden Wishes isn't. She is super elegant.
Their sister Daisy is probably the most flashy right now.

But we love little Ray, he has amazing spots, is a very elegant little boy and he has a beautiful profile.
We don't know if their daddy want to mate another girl in the future, maybe we have to wait another new 5 years? A little joke, but you never knows, it are the cats who decide the rules in the end. And Tiger has his own special rules.
And if their daddy will have a longer break, his son can actually be used for all of girls, beside his sister of course.

I love all the kittens in this litter, and I am so happy for them.
Rays profile below.

Together with their beautiful mommy :

4 of them will continue in different breeding programmes, and 2 will have wonderful pet homes.
There has not been decidet yet where Christian will move, so you are free to contact us if you think you have the right home for him.
Beautiful Amber has a very good home waiting for her in Bergen.

Here they are 8 weeks old :


And the siamese brothers , my two favorite siamese kittens :-))
11 weeks old - I can't understand where the time went by.
They will soon move to Carolynn, and not long after that they are gone to their new homes.
Awful to think about, I mean that they will soon leave me. I will miss them dearly.

As last week, Saturday is not lucky with his pic. But it is not easy to have a brother who is always nice on pictures either.
Saturday got a special elegance like his mother has, and he has super super short coat. And he is wonderful irritating super naughty! My climbing monky,
Sunday has in my opinion a bit long coat, but many blue siamese struggle with that. He is for the most of the time very polite and sweet and knows better how to behave :-) And did you know he will get a special brother in his new home? A St.Bernard!! He will have ALOT of new brother.

Yep, this was all for now.
New update in a week or so.
