Chimay, December 2003
- and Zuri, January 2004
have been to see both of Sarantoya's kittens. In December we visited Ujiji Chimay
and a week ago we went to see Uzuri.
Chimay looks quite a lot like
but her coat is more fluffy, and she is lighter. She had been neutered
recently, and even ear-marked, and both her ears were still quite green.
She and the burmese Marron are very good friends. Marron seems to be the
dominant cat, but it doesn't bother Chimay, and they get along very well.
Also Zuri has got a mate. Three months ago a 3 months old Russian Blue
kitten, Kamp's Beladdis usually called Addis, moved in with Zuri and Yrsa.
Zuri was interested in the kitten at once, but Addis was scared for a
while. However they quickly made friends. Zuri seems to be a very social
minded cat like his grandmother Lilit.
He is incredibly playful, and like Sarantoya he grumbles when he doesn't
have his way. He was neutered shortly before Addis moved in, and then the
male cheeks he had got at that time disappeared again. Fortunately he has
kept his muscular and harmonic figure; in fact he takes after his granddad
Elvis when it comes to the body type. There is also likeness to his father,
for instance the small ears, and the expression is quite his own. His coat
is quite different from Chimay's, but is neither like any of the parents
coat. It is dark, but very blue, rather close-lying and very, very
lustrous. It is very easy to see his muscles move under the coat.
Most important is that both Chimay and
Zuri are very well, and that their owners are happy about them.
We took photos of both cats, and besides
we got some photos of the owners, and there will be more photos in the
gallery when we get time.
