As already mentioned yesterday, we have some news.
As you all know we have two ladies pregnant being Charlotte and Layla. We already bought all the stuff needed for delivering kittens and also we bought a new webcam and a new delivery box.
And now the unfortunate part. Both are now not pregnant. They were or fooling us ore the kittens were resorbed. In both cases the result is the same …… no kittens.
Although we think it is a pity, as both ladies are beauties and the kittens obviously would have been very handsome 😉 there is also an upside effect.
We can enter for the show in Rangsdorf, Germany for the Christmas show :-).
Yesterday we went for a short drive to Frankfurt to have a peek at a possible new lady for our cattery. It took us about 4 hours (including coffee break) so we arrived around one.
We were lucky and were able to park our car on the spot of the disgruntled neighbour 😉
After a short introduction it was time for a delightful lunch. After that it we had time to look at “our” lady and talk a little with Martina and Stefan.After that it was time for cake 😉
Martina baked one herself and it looked like ….
We had to make a close-up of the cake as we already ate half before we thought of taking a picture ;-).
We took a lot of pictures and you all are obviously very curious and therefore now a couple of pictures.
At the end of the day, when we were preparing to drive back home our “new” lady was also preparing. As you can see in the last picture she decided to sit in Anneke’s basket so we could take her with us immediately. Unfortunately Martina did not agree and therefore we now have to wait until November 12. Martina and Stefan will bring her that day 😉
We have added a new page to our weblog. As you can see in the menu bar we now have a menu item called kittens and its very worthwhile checking that page 😉
We got some new pictures of the new poly lady we are going to see in two weeks time. We are very curious and excited 😉
Well also Layla got into heat and well Red Ice thought he had to do his duty. He said “well that is what you bought me for” 🙂
So with any luck our Layla is also pregnant and that can result in Poly kittens.
So again .. keep on checking and we keep you posted 😉
pregnant, thats the question.
Although we can not see anything yet, Charlotte is behaving completely different. She is sleeping where she never slept before. She is eating canned food and normally she used to be in a completely different room then the canned food. So the signs are there 😉
So everyone get your calendar out and mark November 20th, because that is her due date.
If you check back on a regular basis, we keep you informed about our Charlotte
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 😉
It already has been a long time since our last litter (over a year ago) and therefore we are planning a litter now. The lucky one will be Layla, our very beautiful poly lady. Her last litter was a success and we think this one will to, as the father will be our Aswad (same as last litter).
Layla does not get the pil anymore and now we are waiting until she gets into heat, preferably before we go in vacation 😉
