We live together with two cats: Zarin Lilit and Sarantoya Hesseldal. They are both Russian Blues.
Lilit was born at Sari Kulha's in Finland on December 11th 1997. Her mother is Sagolands Kapris, and her father is Cattleyas Emi No Fujikun. See Lilit's pedigree.
We had made a reservation for
a female kitten from this precise litter already before it was born. There was one female
only - and by the way also only one male - but it didn't matter, when it was just our
Lilit who was born.
Lilit had a bad habit when she was younger:
She loved to play on the banisters of the upper floor. Also our first cat,
Bitsjka, played a lot on the banisters, but she was so elegant, and we
never worried that something would happen. Lilit was different. It always
seemed that she hadn't got the balance and was going to fall down, but it
must have been part of the game, and she always managed.
Sarantoya is the baby of the
house, born Christmas Eve 2001. Because Lilit was not going to have more kittens
Sarantoya came to be the last kitten Lilit gave birth to. The name of her father is
Rathcke's Chlopiec Elf, but he is called Elvis. Elvis sired this litter only, before he
is the most talkative of our cats, or maybe you should say whining. When
there is something she wants she just whines, and most often she has her
way. We use to joke about that she had to stay with us, nobody
else would be able to love her because she is so noisy. She is the high jumper of the house, and
she practises this event daily.
Those who were...
Our very first cat was a
Russian Blue as well: Bitsjkova af Graenselandet, called Bitsjka. She was born in Aabenraa
in Denmark on January 4th 1986. Her mother was Marchinka af Land og Folk, and her father
was Wadim. See Bitsjka's pedigree. Wadim was the
father of only this litter, and Marchinka had only two litters, so Bitsjka and her sisters
and brothers were rather unique, but Bitsjka was the only one who got
Bitsjka was a cat with an exceptionally strong personality. The first cat in a family will probably always be something special, but Bitsjka would always have been something special. It was a great grief to us when she died only 11 years old in January 1997.
Ofelia was born on June 30th 1987 in our very first litter. Her mother was
Bitsjkova af Graenselandet and her father Matrjoschka's Dombanos. See Ofelia's pedigree.
Djingiz was the son of our Ofelia,
and he was born in her first and only litter on June 17th 1989. His father
was Igor Las
Islas. See Djingiz' pedigree.
He loved to
eat, but it
quickly showed, when he ate too much, so we tried to restrict his food. It
wasn't easy, he was very quick when it came to stealing the food of the other
