Happy spoiled neuter to be

Tiger is now 6.5 years old, and has a had quite a journey.
He was born together with 5 other siblings, but everything that could get wrong happened.
Some amazing Sacred Birman breeders opened up their home and hearts.
It was his only chance to survive while we struggled to save his precious mother.

A mircacle happened, actually two. Both mother and son made it, thankfully to wonderful people around them both.

Tiger  moved home again to me ( Veena) when he was some weeks old, and was reunited with his mother.
Later he moved to Carolynn and her family to have a permanent loving home.

Tiger became an adult, and we were so exited and full of plans and dreams for our breeding programme.
But Tiger had other plans .... he was apparently waiting for the right girl.
With some suprelorin chips  we held our hope up, between every time he became fertile again.
We offered him sevreal of females, but nope.
Until one day the right one suddenly walked in trough the door :D

9 weeks later his first ( and only) litter was born.
9 kittens, 6 survived.

Tiger had a new suprelorin chip,  and is now fertile again as I am writing.
We don't know if he would be interested if we did give him a female for mating, but at this present we don't have any girl for him.
Therfor we have decidet to get him neutred, so he can have a pampered good life away from all the hormones.

We have his daughter Stella in our breeding programme, and another daughter, Georgia in our friends breeding programme.
They have again each daughter who will hopefully be a part of the future breeding programmes.

Thank you Tiger for the beautiful litter you gave us.
Thank you for all the years before, babysitting many other kittens ,even 2 feral kittens.
And all the best for you, our special special boy, when you soon will be a happy neuter boy.
We love you to the moon and back.

Monday, August 20th is the neuter day.

Summerbabies - thank you Ziva !

 The matings with Mario in Spring gave us result some weeks ago.
And we love every single one of them .
We mated Stella and Pepsi , and Ziva.  The only mating we heard from upstairs was from the oriental girls. We were so unsure about Ziva for sevreal of weeks. But it turned out she probably hadn't matet at all.
We heard roomers after, that relatives of the boy doesn't like siamese girls :D
Anyway, that doesn't matter . We have lot's of other plans for Ziva later. At the moment, she has not time for any boyfriend, because she is working .....

While we were waiting for Stellas babies , the week before was extremly long.
Because Stella was huge as a house and heavy.  She is herself from a big litter, so I was so sure she had 6 or more in her belly. Therfor of course I asumed the birth wanted to start early.
But no ! Day 68!
Carolynn was with her, while I had my last working day before I had 2 w with holiday from work.
2 beautiful babies were born when I came home.
It was a very difficult birth. The girl came with her back first, so Carolynn manage to get the baby in the right birth position , but it was very painful for Stella.
Then the boy got his head stuck and Carolynn had to screw him gently out.
Both kittens came out alive with no damages , and we avoidet C-section.

I came home from my work that Friday, shortly after both were born.
Stella with Ziva by her side - Ziva was taking care of the kittens - licked them dry.

I sat there waiting for more kittens to come for many hours that evening.
But then I understood the rest of her huge sized belly was food - alot of food.
The babies were hungry, but Stella was not interested - she was confused and in pain.

So it was nothing else to do, than bottlefeed the babies, and hope Stella came in better toughts.
Stella didn't, insted she tried to adopt Fantasy,Mocha ,Cookie and Jesse.

The days went by, and we were waiting for Pepsi to give birth to her babies as well.
Both Pepsi and Ziva took so good care of Stellas twins.

Around 5 days after the birth, i noticed the babies did not want to have goat milk. Hmmm ! They didn't seem sick in any way.
Guess, what? Ziva had started to produce milk. My heart just smeltet. Ziva is  such a sweet and loving cat , has always taken care of all babies since she moved in here, but never produced milk before.

The day after  , Pepsi started with her contractions, and who wanted to help her  as well ?

After the birth was over - I had two very happy and proud mommies in the kitchen. One gave birth, the other adopted. Nature is full of love and surprises.

Ziva and Pepsi are taking so good care of all the babies together.

The babies are now 3 and 4 weeks old , and it is about time to update my blog.

We have 2 girls and 3 boys in the litters.

Meet Mario

Here is one of the boys who will mate some of our girls during this Spring/Summer.

This boy is co owned with Dee and Connie at San-Toi's Cattery in California.

Mario is a couddle bug of an oriental boy.
He reminds me alot of Ziva actually. And when you are a fertile boy and reminds me of her, you are sure a big couddle sweetheart. In other words , an amazing temperament , not seen that often when you are filled with hormones . He is gentle to other boys and girls, no matter ages or if they are fertile or neutred. And he don't spray!!

Our plans is to mate Mario with Stella, Pepsi and Ziva.   So when the matings are done, we can start to cross our fingers and paws :-)

Mario is an elegant boy with a very nice eye shape.
He has a very interesting head with large well placed ears. Actually he reminds alot of Ainur. Ainur is more extreme in his type.
So yes, we are looking very forward to these matings.

Mario has company of Ziva and Pepsi at the moment. Hopefully Pepsi will soon start to call, and Ziva of course too. But I thought  Ziva was the best new  friendship to get in a new home and Cattery since she is always so sweet to everyone  new.

Snow snow snow - it never ends.

Few weeks ago it came ALOT of snow in my place. Almost 1 meter in two days.
I like a little snow, but this is a bit too much.
The dogs loves it, tough - pics taken before the heavy snowfall.

The cats have more various interests regarding this cold season ....

Snow-watching :

Hiding-away-from-the-snow :

One cat - our fluffy Curl actually find the snow interesting :

But it is also nice to snuggle by the fireplace :

And guess what? After some very cold days - down to almost minus 20 night time , the weather has change. Tomorrow the weatherman said it will come more snow!!

Well, we are counting weeks , and Spring will arrive some day, hopefully :-))

And during the Spring we have plans for some of our cats. Exiting plans.
