Show brag

HEAD: ex strong prophile ex.wedge. Nice length of the triangle. Almost straight sidelines. Sharp profile, could have more height om forehead.

EYES: beautiful deep blue. Nice shape and size, ex deep blue colour.

EARS: ex size, medium low set. Very classic earsetting and size.

COAT: ex. clear points, soft silky and close lying. Really fully developed points to for his age. Ex.lilac colour.

TAIL: ex.long, tapering. Could be a bit more tapeurs, a bit thick on base.

CONDITION: super showcondition. Lovely condition, very sweet and gentle.

GENERAL IMPRESSION: Lovely. Young boy who still needs time to develop.

Tjabo as three months old kitten (now he is about four times bigger :))

His proud owner Agneta is very happy, and so are we! šŸ™‚

Congratulations and many thanks to Agneta for showing Tjabo!

Antoine in LuleƄ

One of the lilac point boys, our little Antoine, was the first to move. He went with his new matte Agneta and her son Josef, who came to get him, all the way to LuleƄ (800km from Stockholm)!

Being our most talkative kitten (the lilac ones are real talkers), he had a lot of opinions during the travel, but after Uppsala he complained only when Agneta was changing the speed.

On their way to LuleĆ„, they spent one night at her friend’s place, where Antoine promptly discovered everything there was to be discovered. The next day he arrived to his new home where he met Frasse (Frostuddens Frans Albert), a blue point 4-year old Siamese neuter guy. After a day or two of introduction, everything worked out fine for them, and look how the things are now! (Thank you Agneta for sending us pictures of your little darlings!)

Frasse is a real friend; he caught a mouse (a real one!) as a present for Antoine and is trying to get him to follow outside, but Antoine is too young for that.

Antoine talks when he wants something and when he visits the litter box, likes to lie in his matte‘s lap and is social with visitors. At first he sits still and observes them when they arrive, then he goes forward and greets them and socialize. He even falls asleep in their arms sometimes.

Antoine’s pet name has not been decided yet, he is called mostly Tjabo or KomKom for now.

Here is a picture of Antoine taken on August 27th.

He looks a lot like Jossan when she was small, but I think he will have more space between his ears, and they will be more open in the base. But the nose, eyes, chin, the whole face and the body lengths are exactly like his mom’s.

Twelve weeks (the next step – world domination)

Within next six days all of the kittens, except for Albert that is staying with us, are moving to their new homes.

Antoine is on his way to LuleƄ now (about 800km from here, traveling by car). His matte called us twice today and we know how the little one is doing.

He is our most talkative kitten, and I guess that there is a lot to talk about on such a long trip… they are spending the night at a family friend’s place and will arrive to LuleĆ„ tomorrow. Antoine is researching the car and his room (including the curtains) thoroughly and it is going quite well for him. It was very hard to separate from Antoine and there are five more kittens to leave! The feelings are mixed.

We are very proud of our little furry ā€˜babiesā€™ and hope that they will live many healthy and happy years with their new families.

The next step ā€“ world domination:
