The Girls on our labels.
To the left are 3 girls who are very dear to our hearts.
First there is Lace the brown who passed away at 13 years 2 months and 5 days and was from a litter of 4 she was the only girl and had 2 brown brothers and 1 black brother, Red, Toby and Stanley. Then our black and white girl Fleur who is 10 on April 4th 2016 – in some countries they are called Landseer after the painter Edwin Landseer as he use to love painting them she is from a litter of 7 , Blaze, Gastone, Macy, Gretel LLoyd, and Gretel (who is now in Germany) and last but certainly not least is our Abbey who is 10 and is from a litter of 3, Basil and Clive. All the girls have been mums although not often and are now grandmothers or great aunts.
Mitzy one of our rescue girls
The office supervisor
Mitzy was rescued from the Rangiriri bridge about 4 years ago. I stopped at the traffic light and she came out of the bushes and sat and looked at me as if to say “Well I have been waiting for you how come it took you so long?” so needless to say I pulled over let other traffic passed raced across the road to discover her meandering back into the bush to her litter of 3 kittens and the rest as they say is history her babies Monty , Possum and Arthur went on to loving homes but she stayed here with us and now supervises everything we do with utmost care and is often found asleep on our bed or sitting on a shelf above my desk as i work. No one wanted her and I am glad as she has chosen to own me – I can’t remember being owned by a cat quite like her ever.
