After we returned from our vacation in Tunisia we had to paint our house on the second and the third floor. For that we rented scaffolding. After we were done, the cats were allowed outside again and our Baba wanted to be a “builder” and climbed on the scaffolding.
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 special day at our place. we have to celebrate three birthdays/
First of all, we have Lady Zayra of the three Turnips (Zayra). She became 11 years old today.
Secondly (and third) we have the two sisters Vaskebjorns Fleur du Cap and Vaskebjorns Svannah P. Both became two years old today/ Especially Savannah is a surprise as she is suffering from Tetralogy of Fallot and was not supposed to get old. This was discovered when we had a heartscan with 9 weeks for her because our vet heard a heart murmur. At the moment she is trying to set the record 😉
Today is a day of remembrance. Exactly a year ago Amerrykoons SimplyRed passed away. We only had him for a very short time due to his sickness but he nevertheless left a everlasting impression. We will never forget him.
In February 2011 when we were in Berlin we went to a little gallery to see if we could get something special. They were selling glass objects and we saw a little glass flask. We Unfortunatelydid not buy it then because we wanted to look to other things to. In October we were also in Berlin and went to the gallery again and now we decided to buy the little flask. As it was still there it had to be destiny.
As you might have guessed. The content of this flask is Amerrykoons SimplyRed
Well the Rangsdorf show weekend is over. It was a long but a good weekend. First of all the show was a good one. It is not to big and not to small. We decided to go only on Saturday and Sunday and leave the Friday as is. After the long drive we think it’s better to give the cat some time to get accustomed to his temporary home. On Saturday we had Steven Savant, Linda Kay Ashley, Lisette de Landtsheer, Harley DeVilbiss and Pascal Remy as judges. On Sunday we had the same judges except for Harley DeVilbiss. Instead of Harley we had Jean-Marc Lagarde.
All judges judged our Poly on both days and we also got compliments on him. The best compliment came from Harley who said that Baba would have a good chance in the standard Maine Coon ring. And that’s obviously our (long term) purpose.
The advantage of the show in Rangsdorf is that when the show day is over you can have a little walk outside and have a look on the Weihnachtsmarkt. Friday was a bit empty, but the Saturday was really crowded.
By the way, what we noticed is that there is a relatively large number of Bengals at the show. It looks like Bengals are progressing towards the next Hype.
