Today exactly 20 years ago a little miracle happened. On that day our first Maine Coon was born at the cattery of Ina and IJsbrand Gjaltema. This little red boy stole our heart straight away. He did not like showing a lot, but loved his task as couch potato ;-).
Unfortunately he is not among us anymore, he died December 27, 2007 but he will be in our heart forever.
Today exactly 10 years ago our Feme was born out of Dynamicats Banshee and Bonfires Cookie Monster.
In her younger days she did very well on shows and most likely she still would go well, certainly given her age. Unfortunately she only had 1 litter, but fortunately we kept her daughter Vaskebjorns Layla P. 😉
She is already sitting behind the door to receive all the birthday cards.
Yesterday was Anneke’s birthday. She got presents from the dogs, the cats and me of course. Charlotte decided that she wanted to give an extra birthday gift. After all the time we were waiting she decided to get into heat. We decided to bring her upstairs to meet Aswad, the father to be. Unfortunately nothing happened because Aswad thought she was to big. (Charlotte is almost 9 kilo) and therefore we brought her down again.
Then it happened again, Charlotte was walking around calling for a male and Red Ice decided that it was his turn. He is a bit young (9 months) but both he and Charlotte did not really mind 😉
In the meantime he did his trick a couple of times and he is not finished yet 😉
For us the waiting starts now. In 4 weeks we can see if Red Ice did his job well 😉
