A-litter 10 weeks old

A-kullet her er fylt 10 uker nå, og planene for dem er stort sett klare  –  plans for the A-litter are ready. Alaric, Asha og Arianne er alle reserverte og flytter om to-tre uker til sine respektive familier. Arya og Aegon blir i oppdrettet for evaluering til videre avl. Arya skal bo her hos oss, mens Aegon etter hvert får flytte til enten et fôrhjem eller bo hos andre i familien. Når han blir fertil er det en fordel å bo unna mor og søster.

Hip Results for the Girls

Hip X-ray results are now ready for our girls: We check all cats for Hip Dysplasia before breeding.   PawPeds HD Health programme, Dr Per Eksell. Olenna: Normal (L), Normal (R) Suki: Normal (L), Normal (R)   It means the two young girls are ready for their HCM echocardiography in February. Depending on the results, we will start to plan possible matings in 2015. For our beautiful India the results are not good, unfortunately. India has moderate HD, 2-2, and cannot be used for breeding. She will hopefully become a very happy neutered pet later and be allowed to stay more outdoors, hunt and climb trees.

Summer is over

Summer is over Now the autumn winds and rains have arrived on the northwest coast, and it is time to return home. We have been in the countryside since late June, and have had a warm and relaxing summer. The three young cats have had two houses to roam, and we have seen many visitors during summer. The small ones have grown a lot, but are still kittens at heart, chasing each other and finding every opportunity to do mischief. The three neuter cats have been allowed to run free outside, and for the first time we have been presented with hunt trophies! There are apparently small mice in the woods here after all. Summer started and ended with shows, and we are happy with the results: Ski in June, Smaalenene: Suki got an excellent judgment and was Ex 1 out of 2 cats in group 4. Olenna had her debut in the show ring and got an excellent judgement with Ex1. Not bad for a low-clone cat with complete inbreeding 6,54 %! Ålesund in September, Sunnmørskatten: Suki was just over 7 months and in class 11 Junior. She again had excellent judgements both days, and was up for nominations which she lost to typed India’s niece on Saturday and a beautiful Norwegian Forest boy on Sunday. India got CACIB both days and cannot be shown again in Norway until she has a CACIB from a different country.
