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 we do not have a specific subject for our blog. There are a number of things we want to mention anyway.
We start of with the good news. As already mentioned we got the last room in the show hotel in Rangsdorf and are going with two cats. Baba and Red Ice have the honor to enter. So one poly and one non-poly.
There is a bit of not so good news to. The lady we saw some time ago and were considering as an addition to our cattery is not coming to live with us. There were some very good reasons for that, but we will not put them publicly on the internet.
Furthermore, we already mentioned that Charlotte is not pregnant. That did not stop her from adopting some “kittens”. She has now two kittens. One is our Kitty and the other one is Kaneeltje.As you can see on the picture she is very dedicated.

The last subject is our Savanna. She is still running around, despite of her condition. And she also is a bit spoiled ;-). She lookes really good though, even with her lazy relaxed ears ;-).
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 😉

The wicker basket took a minute more Moncha thought it was a nice place to rest 😉
Tomorrow we have some more news so check back tomorrow.
As you all might know our cats got there new “apartments” on the wall. We also had to promise that they get a “boulevard” to walk around (at 2.10 meters). Unfortunately we had to order all kind of parts to build it. As the big scratch poles to build the cats boulevard are not ready yet (we still have to wait a week) the cats will have to be patient.
Savanna did not want to wait though and already started walking around 😉
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.
It has been a while since our last post and times are exciting as the title already says.
To start of with , we have a lot of birds in our front yard and our little Savanna loves to look at them. She sits in the window a big part of the day and hey, when you get tired there is of course no reason to go sit somewhere else as you can see on this picture.

Secondly, we finally got the message from our scratch pole supplier that the new schratch poles are on the way. We ordered 3 new ones on the show in Salzburg. As soon as the get in they get a couple of extra layers of “bullet proof” paint. You know cats can destroy almost everything if they want ;-), so it’s better to be prepared. We already told the cats that the new poles are in the mail and they are sooooo excited. Unfortunately it takes a week for the paint to dry so the cats need to be patient ;-). For the time being the will have to do with the “old” ones.

But last and certainly not least Charlotte and Baba have been naughty a couple of days ago. So with a bit of luck Charlotte might be pregnant.
