My name is MajorTess Leevie. I have lived with my new owner for two weeks, but I was so scared of her dogs. Despites the fact that Linda told me that they are easy going and sweet dogs. For two weeks I lived upstairs to scared to go down. So Linda took me home and when I arrived at my parental home, I was so excited! Everything was familiar to me and I made friends with Mambo and Brutus. Besides that I love to sleep on Linda’s lap. She cuddles me a lot. Gerrit and Linda didn’t want for me to move again so I can live with them as a pet. And yes they have enough cats already (I heard them say), but I made them change their mind with my good looks and sweet nature;-). My parents are Mia and Major. So if you want to know more about my background you can take a look at their pedigree.
MajorTess Mambo born on the 4th of October 2009
My name is MajorTess Mambo. My parents are Millie and Brutus. According to Linda I am already a big boy and very cuddly. This because I don’t have any brothers or sisters. But you must know that I miss having them. But gladly Linda and Gerrit play with me a lot and now I am very close with Leevie and my daddy Brutus. And when I am a bit older hopefully the other cats will play with me too. Since Linda and Gerrit have a lot of cats to play with. Linda didn’t apply for my pedigree, but if you are curious you can take a look at the pedigrees of my parents Millie and Brutus. I have taken over Brutus job by now. So my daddy can enjoy his retirement;-). More about me you can read in Linda her diary.
My name is Royal Dutch Mia. I came to live with Gerrit and Linda on the 30th of August 2008. I am a poly lady on all four paws. I am very sweet and love cuddles. Furthermore I like to chat and certainly when I want attention or something to eat. I am normally not this “oversized”. At this picture I was carrying 6 kittens!
My name is StarnStripes' Macy. On the 15th of September 2007 I arrived in Holland. I came all the way from Wisconsin USA. What a long journey! So I was a bit tired on my first day. I have a semi longhaired coat, a fluffy tail (like a rabbit) and big poly feet. I love cuddles and playing. The other cats accepted me very quick. But that's because I am so sweet. And I can appear out of nowhere and suddenly jump on you lap. Yes I do like cuddles from people. I am well socialized. And I love it here!
My name is Arduinna C Millie. On the 23rd of June 2007 I was brought to Linda and Gerrit in Holland. I came all the way from France. I am slim, shorthaired, long tailed and have very nice spots. I love to cuddle and play. And when I hear Gerrit coming home, I will give him a nice welcome! Lately my behaviour changed. Know I will sleep on every lap that is available! Linda is so happy about that. She loves me very much and now I will sleep at her lap a lot. I wished I did that sooner. Since I love people.
May 28, 2010 I also took an early retirement. I had a spontaneous uterine infection and had to go to the veterinarian. And when I arrived there, the vet let me stay…. And when I woke up, my tummy was a bit flat and empty……. But I must admit that I felt a lot better afterwards. Now I live as a pet and of course I can stay with Gerrit and Linda.
My name is MajorTess Maya. I am the daughter of Squirrel and Brutus. I am a bit strange. When people try to cuddle me, I run away or I dive. I decide when I want some cuddles or not. But when I start to purr people know that I want them to cuddle me. Sometimes I even jump on their lap. My ‘owners’ will look very surprised, because I don’t do that often. I also like it when people chase after me and in the mean time talking to me. I will talk back to them. And of course I like to play with people or my kittens. Not long ago I got to retire too. My last pregnancy (litter of 27th of November 2009) didn’t go well. The vet had to do a c-section and I got spayed also. I know that it was better for my health, but I do love raising kittens.
My name is Bobcatlegend Major No. 1. I am a real cuddly cat and a chatterbox. I love attention. But I am also a bit jealous. I lay beside Linda’s bed at night. And when I see Magnum or Muchi jumping on her bed, I jump after them. I want all the attention for myself. And when they don’t leave, I even bite them (softly) in their legs. I find that very amusing. But I also love them. I play with them and we sleep against one another. But I don’t like all the cats in this house. And that is due to the fact that I am a stud. This makes me a bit more dominant and they don’t like my smell either. And I spray a lot too. But since Linda gives me a little pill each day, it is under control. It makes me more relaxed. But furthermore I may not complain. I have at least two cat friends and I may sleep on Linda’s bed.
My name is Starnstripes Philosopher Brutus. I am a big boy although it is hard to see at this picture. The reason that I don’t like people taken pictures of me is that terrible light. I will close my eyes on almost every picture. I am a scary cat. And it took me a long time to let Linda into my life. But I am fond of her ever since. I love her cuddling me and playing with me. I call her often for some attention. I do like the females in the house. But Linda only let them stay with me when it is planned. That is so mean! I tried to make friends with the other cats who are spayed/neutered, but they don’t like me. I smell different since I am a stud. And when I walk in the house freely I will spray against everything that is on my way. So that is not possible anymore. Yes the life of a stud isn’t easy, but by way of compensation Linda gives me a lot of love every day.
I have to fill you in that I have been spayed in October 2009. Finally I can retire! Linda hopes that I will make friends with her other cats, but I don’t want to for now. Besides the females aren’t nice to me anymore. When I try to step out of my room, the will chase me back in… Hopefully this will go better in time. But for now I am happy that I have my son Mambo and Leevie to play and cuddle with.
