Ada and Alfred, 5 months

We got the latest picture of Ada and Alfred from their beloved matte. They are so pretty! Ada is blue (darker) and Alfred is a lilac point Siamese (lighter in color).

I suspected since they were three weeks old that Alfred was not lilac, but chocolate, and later I settled for caramel lilac, since his color was slightly different (warmer)  than his two lilac brothers’ and Leroy’s and Jossan’s lilac color, but I registered him as lilac. I am still not quite sure what his exact color is, in 1-2 years one can be certain if he is caramel lilac or “just” lilac.

Caramel color modifier was not registered in Sweden earlier, not for Siamese (but it is registered in England, for example, and the cats we imported from England that were caramel lilac/caramel blue got registered as lilac/blue in Sweden). Caramel modifier makes the diluted colors like blue and lilac a bit warmer in tone. Also, the fur gets a special metallic sheen, at blue based caramels. A chocolate or seal point Siamese that is a carrier of caramel modifier looks the same as the one who is not; caramel is not visible on undiluted colors.

I melt when I see Jossan’s babies pictures, they are our little furry babies also, and I am delighted to see them growing and hear that they are so much loved and taken care of.

We also got news about Ash (Archimedes). He weighs 3kg! A big guy! He was so tiny when he got sick, but he struggled like a lion and ate like he was the biggest feline on Earth after he recovered. Now he is one big and fluffy Siamese kitten, that is almost as big as his 3,8kg heavy Cornish Rex friend Misty.

Visit to the humans owned by Archimedes and Misty

Three days ago we were so happy to visit Archimedes and Misty and their owners.
Those are two very happy and loved cats. Archimedes, pet name Ash, is so big now, we could not believe our eyes when we saw him! He is almost as big as Jossan and looks a lot like her. From some angles you can see that his head is larger and his proportions are typical for tomcats. Also, he has better shape of ears and a bit rounder eyes than Jossan, but from the pictures I took, if I did not know it was him, I’d think it was his mom!
Misty has the softest fur I have ever felt on a cat (she is a Cornish Rex) and is very mild and loving in nature. Ash is quite active and cute as he’s always been, completely comfortable around people; he is one little purring and playing machine. He greets everyone, as he greeted us, but I also think that he did recognize us. He showed us a lot of love, but at the same time he seemed very happy and content with his humans and Misty.
Look how nice they have it there!
