New additions to the cat furniture

Hello everyone,

Besides the fact that we are still looking for a Philippe Starck “cat basket” we saw some nice things today at the cat show in Hellevoetsluis. We saw one wicker cat basket and one made from carpet (produced in Canada we were told).

we already had one of the carpet “baskets” but that one was completely worn down by the cats. Unfortunately it was one the favorite of our “patient” Savanna. It took just 5 seconds before she claimed her position ;-). As you can see it is very relaxing judging her ears ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi everyone,

It is an active day today. Two posts in one evening ๐Ÿ˜‰

As already mentioned a couple of posts ago, we were at the TICA show in Hellevoetsluis and coincidentally there was also a photographer (Michiel Lebbink of www.poezels.nl).

He took a couple of pictures of our Red and we were very pleased with the result ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hellevoetsluis TICA show, 12 rings

Hi everyone,

Last weekend we had a show in the Netherlands. For this time we decided to stay close to home ;-). Just 133 km.

We drove over on Friday, so it would be more relaxed on Saterday. We could enter on Saterday between 8 and 9, which is a decent time :-).

Thereย  were 6 poly coons at the first day of the show.ย  and the results were :

ย  Red Layla Baba
Bobbie Tullo 1 2
Edith Mary Smith 2
Alexey Schuckin 3 2
Lisette de Landtsheer 1 3

Jean Marc Lagarde 1 3

On the second there were only 4ย poly coons and the results were the following :

ย  Red Layla Baba
Bobbie Tullo 2 1
Edith Mary Smith 3 2
Alexey Schuckin 1 3 2
Lisette de Landtsheer 2 1 3
Edith Mary Smith 3 2
Jean Marc Lagarde 1 2 3

All in all we were really satisfied with the results.

Bathing Time for our Maine Coons

Hello everyone,

Today was the day to give our Maine Coons a sponge bath. This weekend Layla, Baba and Red have a show. This time it is not that far as we only have to drive to Hellevoetsluis, which is about 140 km.

But, as already said, when you go to show you have to give the cats a bath and the three of them really like that ;-).

First in row was Baba, second was Red and finally Layla.

They all got the usual treatment and that means 5 different “shampoos” to get them as clean as possible. First you degrease the cat without water, then you rinse the cat and degrease him with water. Then you get the woolite and after that a lot of water. When that is done we get a conditioner and flush that out again and finally you take a special shampoo which differs per cat (color). And last but certainly not least you put the cat under the shower until all soap is gone and that takes 10-15 minutes. After that you only need a lot of towels and a livingroom heated up to 23C(elcius).

At the moment the three of them are very relaxed and are sleeping somewhere.
