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.
Today is a very sad day. This morning at 10.30 AM Dynamicats Banshee passed away at the age of 13 years and 9 months.
This grand lady was born February 10, 1998 out of “Frolicoon Rebel without a Cause” and “Dynamicats Love Unlimited”. For the past 3 years she was having problems with her lungs and was therefore on antibiotics all the time. Very slowly her health decreased over time and this weekend she did not want to eat and drink anymore. As a result of this we decided that it was time for her to pass the rainbow bridge. She can now spend all her days doing what she loved to do most and that is sunbathing. She loved to sit in the sun and simply do nothing.
As our Banshee is already very very old we decided to make a post here with 4 generations of cats. All 4 generations are living with us in our home.
The 4 cats in the line up are :
Dynamicats Banshee, born February 10 1998 and therefore 13 years and 7 months old,
Vaskebjorns Feme, born July 20 2002 and therefore 9 years and 2 months old,
Vaskebjorns Layla P, born December 1 2007 and she is 3 years and 10 months old,
and finally Vaskebjorns Babangida P, born January 14 2010 and he is therefore 1 years and 8 months old.
As already said, Banshee is very old and you can see that in everything. She sleeps all day and you have to bring her her food. She can not be bothered anymore by walking over to the food and she likes to eat undisturbed by other cats. When a cat (or dog) are nearing their end we have a saying that says “Christmas is far away” and in Banshee’s case Christmas is very far away.
Today was a beautifull day. The sun is shining and if you stay out of the wind, even the temperature is great. So we decided to make our tasks outside the house as fast as possible. We had to buy some stuff, because we painted our entrance. The only problem was that we could not find what we were looking for. When we returned home the cats said that we could have saved some time and have it their way in the first place 🙂
Their way, in this case, was that we opened the doors. And then the cats could go play outside. They are enjoy it very much. Some are running around, while other take a little nap in the afternoon sun.
Banshee decided that is was time for a nap. She is 13 years old, so she is entitled to her sleep and as you can see on the picture, she loves it.

Baba, our lazy Maine Coon male thought it better, just sitting on the BBQ. At that spot you can see a lot without running around.

And finally our two rascals. Blau maus and Savannah have a lot of things to do. The two “ladies” are always into something. They are as naughty as you can get a Maine Coon.
Both love being outside and preferably as far away from inside the house as they can get.
