Acadia coons Endless Gascoine (aka Endy)

Hello everyone,

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.

Birthday present

Hello everyone,

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 😉

Dirty dirty boy

Hello everyone,

Ice is now really at home over here. He knows the daily routine and is not afraid of the other cats and he even got used to the dogs.

But he also likes to play outside and that shows 😉

You can hardly call him red/white. He is more something like red/grey as he loves to roll in the sand 😉

Amerrykoons SimplyRed of Vaskebjorns

Hello everyone.

Today we received the print of Red. He passed away exactly two months ago and we decided to get a huge print of him to hang in our livingroom.

We were already a long time looking for something on the backside of our cupboard and the result is really overwhelming.

Red is home again

Hello everyone,

Yesterday our beloved Red came home again. He was cremated on the 19th at 12:20 (local time). He is now reunited with all of our beloved cats that passed away before him.

We are still looking for a special urn for him.

Show preparations for Rangsdorf

Hello everyone,

The preparations for the TICA show in Rangsdorf (close to Berlin Germany) are at full speed. We take three cats to the show and they are all poly.

The lucky cats are : Vaskebjorns Babangida P (Baba), Vaskebjorns Layla P (Layla) and Amerrykoons SimplyRed P (Red).

The cats have had their baths already. Furthermore we also are backing 2 “prinsjesbroden” 🙂

Both of them are in the oven at the moment and need about 80 minutes. And everyone present at the show can have a taste 🙂

Hi everyone,

It is an active day today. Two posts in one evening 😉

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 😉

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 :-).

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

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

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

  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.

we took a lot of pictures so i only insert a link here. The pictures of the first day you can find on http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Album=K7YWXGSE.

The second day you can find on http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Album=TVCTWNLF

And take care, there are a lot of pictures 😉

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.

Hi everyone,

This morning Red decided to take a rest in the catswheel. If you take a close look you can see his nice big feet 😉

He is doing very well given the fact that he is in our house for a short time. He is now preparing for the Cats and Tulips show this weekend.

We will of course keep you updated on how he is doing, so stay tuned in.
