The litter

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

Maybe you are all wondering what actually happened to the kittens? Well let me tell you!

Arawn lives with a very loving girl here in Stockholm making her life a lot more.. Interesting. He hasn’t changed names yet but we will see if she find something more fitting for him! He will be kept as a stud for S*Anshara somali and might become a dad in a few years.

Here he is, around 14 weeks old out on our balcony.

Aeval buried herself deep in my heart and she got to stay here with us. She will hopefully, if my dear partner can be convinced, have a litter of her own someday. (He complained he could not sleep with kittens everywhere.)

Amaethon stole the heart of a couple from Åland, and now lives in Mariehamn with another somali boy called Ozzy. They are making the life of Ritva and Ralf almost too much to bear. Amaethon has a new name, and is now called Diesel. He is very talkative and purrs like a little tractor.

Ai also still lives in Stockholm, he is now a big city cat and lived in the middle of central Stockholm together with another somali-girl called Pixie, and 2 dogs called Suzi and Laika. He is being incredibly spoiled and really loves to play with Pixie and Suzi. He also got a new name and is now called Francis.

I want to thank all my buyers and it all feels really good. They really found the perfect home for themselves!

They are growing and starting to be more and more active. Aeval is the most active one, crawling around on all fours, tho very unstable, and exploring the little box they live in.

Some eyes-open photoes!

1 week old Somali kittens.

Yesterday the litter turned 1 week. They almost doubled in size but still look a lot like they did at birth, just bigger.

Arawn

Aeval – The one who gaigned most weight. She is now 2nd biggest in the litter even tho she was born the smallest!

Amaethon – Biggest in the litter! He is also the first one who has opened both eyes today. But it wont show on the picture.

Ai – Smallest in the litter. But after we saw a vet because of problems with one of Sarias udders that Ai decided was his own, he has gaigned a lot of weight and is catching up to the others.

They are growing well and we are just waiiting for them all to open their eyes so we can see some more action in the living box!

Kitten invasion!

So, no updates in a while huh? Well, here is an update for you!

Yesterday around 16:00 Saria gave birth to 4 lively kittens. I will present them to you, and also try to keep updating the blog so you can follow their first 12-14 weeks of life here.

First out was Arawn. He was giving his mother a hard time at first, but finally came out and was well taken care of by mummy. For my own part didn’t have to do much else but sit there and take some photos and keep Saria company.

Arawn, a few hours old. Fawn Somali boy.

After that came Aeval, smallest of the litter, blue Somali girl.

Third out was Amaethon. He decided he wanted to come out behind first, and was having a wee bit of problems coming out since Aeval‘s placenta was stuck behind him. Fawn Somali boy. He was also born as the biggest in the litter of 4, 113 grams!

Last we got a little surprise. I was almost starting to believe she was done, then poof, there was a 4th getting cleaned by mother cat. Ai, fawn Somali boy. (might be a girl, Ain in that case)

All the names are taken from the various Celtic Mythologies around the world. Arawn was the Welsh god of the underworld, Aeval was the Fairy Queen of Munster among the Celts of Ireland. Amaethon a Welsh god of agriculture and Ai a Irish Poet God.

I’ll also share some pictures of the whole litter, some kittens and their mother.

I’ll try and update the blog continuously so you can see them growing and finally finding home for themselves.

Saria!

Har fått nya bilder på Saria, tyvärr verkar inte parningen tagit, så vi får vänta ännu längre på kattungar, och på att få hem Saria.

Usch saknar denna sötnosen så otroligt!

Det är tyst och lungt utan Saria

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

Saria, min lilla blåa somali är på herrbesök. Eller ja, hon är hemma hos sin uppfödare för att paras, och för att sedan föra sin kull där. Hon åkte redan i mitten på december, och vi saknar henne otroligt mycket här hemma.

Jag tänkte visa lite bilder som är lånade av S*Anshara, Sarias uppfödare, och visa denna underbara kisse som nu också skall ha ungar i vår är det tänkt.

Vi hoppas att parningen skall gå bra och att det inte blir för söta ungar. Vet inte hur jag skall kunna stå emot om Saria får en vilt eller fawn somali hane efter sig. Vi har inte plats för fler! Men nog vill jag ha en till alltid. Skulle vara så underbart med en lite söt somaliunge springandes runt här och liva upp stämmningen.

Men matte och husse har såklart fortfarande katter hemma. Zelda och Bertík förgyller fortfarande våra liv. Men jag saknar ändå Saria, för hon är en del av denna familjen.
