Kittens born

2018-05-29 11:43

May 16th 2018,  Mirumkitty Lucrecia gave birth to one single kitten.  It is a little boy and his name will be NO*Glassrosens Ru Paul    This will be Luzi´s last litter as our plan is to neuter and re-home her when Ru haas left for his new home :)

May 29th 2018, White Queen gave birth to 6 kittens    All kittens are blue bicolor.  Since they were born just a few hours ago we have still not checked the sex.  If there is a nice female in the litter we will keep her and probably neuter and re-home WQ together with her mother Luzi since they are so very close.  Now they are sharing the kittens from both litters and all are staying in one birth box :)  Update on sex will be done at our Kittens page :)

Some results from Norak Catshow

2018-05-09 14:16

We have brought home Amunet and Mary, and they will be staying with us now. They have been in a temporary home for a few weeks since we had a problem with Emlio wanting to mate the kittens.   Emilio will go back to Germany to his breeder this weekend, since both we and Cattery Raggedly Yours now have mated the females we wanted to use him for.  We are expecting two litters from Emilio, and Elisabeth has mated one female.  Now we just have to wait and see what will come :)  

At the Norak Cat Show last weekend we were a rather big group of fosterfamilies and breeders with cats from us participating.  We brought the following cats:  Here´s Johnny, Bloody Mary, Amunet and Yara.  We also brought Dina as breeder male and Cecilie´s persian cat Maki.  With new owners McQueen (class 12), Elliot (class 10). Serratia (class 11) - Elliot, Amunet, Johnny, Serratia and McQueen all got nominated.  McQueen was BIV in class 12 and got 2 votes in the panel but lost since Donatella (extra judge) preferred the other kitten.  Maki was also nominated.  Dino became best breeding male.

 


Jack Skellington has moved in

2018-04-10 16:40

A couple of days ago our new boy from NO*Whimsical´s Cattery in Oslo moved in with us.  NO*Whimsical´s Jack Skellington is son of NO*Glassrosens River Song and our german import male DE Wanderduene Dino.  Dino´s last litter before he was put on another suprelorin chip late last autum.  Jack will, together with Here´s Johnny, be one of our breeding males in the years to come.  

We are now expecting kittens from HU Mirumkitty Lucrezia and DE Emilio de la Buena Estrella.  Kittens are due in the middle of May.  It is possible that Emilio also have mated White Queen, but it is a bit early to say.  If WQ is not pregnant with Emilio we might have other plans for her :)  Will update about this a bit later.

Visiting the Scandinavian Winner Show 2018 in Gothenburg

2018-04-02 21:31

Saturday March 31st we drove down to Gothenburg to meet breeder friends and visit the SWS 2018.  We did not bring any cats, but just walked around meeting people, and looked at some of the ragdoll judgements :)  Only 3 ragdolls was nominated to Best in Show - all from the same judge.  

While attending the show we got a message from Ambra that Anuket was doing great at the FIFe show in Cluny, France.  She was EX1, BIV and NOM for the BIS.  Later in the afternoon she informed us that she became Best in Show and best kitten/youngster at the show.  Such great results at Anuket´s very first show - just a few days past 4 months.  

We spent the evening with some breeder friends, eating and having fun.  Next morning we drove back to Fredrikstad and the other cats :)  Later in the afternoon Ambra told us that Anuket had the same results at the show this day and became BIS and Best kitten and youngster again :)  

 


All the kittens has moved to new homes :)

2018-03-30 18:46

All the kittens has now moved to their new homes :)  Amunet has moved to Halden to Liss and Valentina, and for a while Mary has joined them too.  We will try to move Liss´s cats a bit back and forth so they can get used to the ones living her, and this will make it easier for us when we need "catsitters".  Amunet will have a playmate in Mary, and they are already good friends :)  Amunets sister Anuket has moved to France to Cattery Ragalaxy and our very good friend Ambra and her husband Pierre Oliver :)  Amun-Ra stays with Michelle and Ketil and will live there together with Epica.  Epica will have 2 more litters for Glassrosens, and Amun-Ra will be neutered in a while. 

Johnny has moved to a fosterfamily in Moss, and will be one of our future studs together with NO*Whimsical Jack Skellington.  Jack is son in Glassrosens River Song and Dino - and the plan is that he shall live here in Fredrikstad with me.  

Gina is starting to gain weight now after the kittens and the neuterering, and we will be looking for a new home for her when she is fully recovered.  Best solution will be a home where she can be an only cat, and since she loves to be outside she need a home with a secured cat-run.  She is also a small Houdini and need the catsrun to be totally closed.  If you think you can offer her a perfect home please send us a few words to my mailadress:  berit.huseby@gmail.com :)  Gina in the picture below.

 

 

 

 

 


Gina is neutered

2018-02-23 20:36

 On Monday (Febuary 19th) we noticed Gina was not herself, after a long week we have finally been allowed to take Gina home from the clinic today, unfortunately now neutered - but her health is the most important   She is not completely out of the woods yet, but we believe she will be fine in a little while

Goodbye Lana

2018-01-24 11:38

It has been a sad few days in our cattery, on Friday 19.01.18 NO*Glassrosens Lana Del Rey became very suddenly ill, over the days it escalated quickly and the vets could not really figure out what it was. Yesterday, the 23rd it became much worse and her host mother took her again in to the vets, while we didn't get a definitive diagnosis it was most likely something neurological - probably more than one neurological issue. How this happened we do not know, she have never been sick before. It was clear that Lana was in a lot of pain, even with morphine treatment her host mother felt her pain to be unbearable, so she made the decision to let Lana go, something we completely support.   Lana was a truly beautiful young girl and she will be very missed, but we are glad she does not have to suffer any more

Mim has left for her new home <3

2018-01-11 16:30

Today I delivered Madam Mim to her new home in Halden.  She is fully recovered after the illness.  It was hard to send her away, but I hope she will be very happy in her new home :)

We have decided to keep Bloody Mary from the Halloween litter in the cattery.  Baba Yaga is going to Sweden to Liselotte Wendel and will be a breeding queen in Liselottes cattery Wendeltassen.  Here´s Johnny is now available as a breeder for a small cattery, since we have decided that we want to keep Amun-Ra from Epica´s litter and not Johnny.  Mostly because Amun-Ra can be used for most of our females - except for those kept after Dino.  As it seems at the moment both Anuket and Amunet are spoken for.  Amunet is under evaluation for show/breed.

In Valentina´s litter we have a reservation for Marant and Pucci.  Lacroix is booked, and we have offered Armani for pet - expecting answer in a day or two.  McQueen is still under evaluation for show/breed.

Bloody Mary - Our keeper from Gina and Dino :)

 


Mim will stay for now

2017-11-25 11:30

Mimi is still not completely healed after her vaccine reaction, so we have decided together with Synne who was supposed to be her host mother, that they will take Yara instead   This seems like the best solution, as Mim was supposed to have moved to them a few weeks ago, and we now do not see her moving any time soon. Also we needed a place for Yara and she will be perfect for Synne and family   Mim needs time to heal, and she can do that here with her mother and her friends
