Eeeeeeeeeee ! Kitty !

this evening I made the round trip down to a village just outside Leicester to see another Norwegan Forest kitten. The breeder actually had about a dozen, all close in age, all happily in one kitten room. Several had already been reserved but none of them will be leaving for their new homes for another two-three weeks, when they've had their vaccinations (plus being microchipped, wormed etc). There was a pretty black and white available, but nearly all of my cats have been black, black and white or grey and white, so I wanted a change.

The breeder was friendly and chatty, and we spent ages there. Steve talked cat fancy and breeding, while Helen and I largely occupied ourselves with the kittens. Just one or two kittens to play with is great, but having a herd of them charging after a tuft of feathers on a stick was fab :). I eventually interrupted Steve to say that we ought to be going, and got down to business. I'd chatted to Firoza, the breeder, when arranging the visit, and I thought things would be OK, but I was still relieved when she said she'd be happy for me to have one of her babies. Responsible breeders do like to know their little darlings are going to be looked after properly. Mind you, being accompanied by a registered GCCF judge (Steve) is a good recommendation.

So I'm going to have a little red and white girl. Her pedigree name is Eucharis, but Firoza liked my choice of pet name - Iella - which is already up on the website. And here she is:

We'll be collecting her at the end of the month. Steve and Helen were planning to go to some art/ceramics show near Nottingham anyway that weekend, so we'll go there first, then down to Leicester to pick up Iella and bring her home.

I'm so excited.
Kitty !
Eeeeeeee !

Congratulations, Momma! She's absolutely beautiful! Darling little fuzzwhomp! You better keep us updated with photos!

How big are her parents and how big does the breeder expect her to get? Did you get to meet at least the momma kitty?

SO happy for you!

We met about three of the queens, including Mum. She's not that big a cat. However Dad, judging by the photos on the website, is a pretty impressive chap.
Iella is about the smallest of her litter, so she may stay a reasonable size like her mum. I like the idea of a biiig, furry cat, but one of more average size might be slightly more practical for me.

Aww, she's adorable! And she looks like she'll keep your lap warm come winter.

Iella is a good name. Smart, pretty, and a bit of spunk!

She's gorgeous! How do you say her name; Yella? Eye-ella?

I couldn't find her under either name on the site, but little Peony is just as adorable. What darlings!

I've only seen the name written, so I've always pronounced it as eye-ella.

The website doesn't work as well with Firefox unfortunately, and the kitten page in particular comes out jumbled. If you still have IE, it works fine in that. Go to the kittens page then follow the link for Ini and Hedera's flowers and plants litter. You can still do this in Firefox, you just have to pick out the link which is superimposed over pics where things are all sqashed together.

Iella was on there when I looked late last night.

Found her now on IE8! I love that they show the kittens at different stages.

Awww - she is totally adorable! I'm looking forward to meeting her in purrrson. :-)

She is beautiful, and such a star, she already knows how to pose. I do envy you.

I don't know if it's just Skogkatts, as those are the ones I've been looking at recently, but the kittens all seem to know how to pose. I've seen so many pics of kittens sitting with their head tilted cutely to one side. You could't *make* them pose any more adorable.

Adult cats can do it too but with them it's regal not cute, see my recent posting of Hobbes showing me he is now a grown up cat.

*faints due to kitten envy*

I can tell that little bewildered ball of fluff has some big paws to grow into!

Congratulations on your new baby :-).

Awww! Kitty! :-D

Hmmm...Diesel is going to look alarmingly large suddenly, isn't she? ;-)

Too cute!

Jasper jumped up at the computer and purred lots so I'm guessing he approves of your choice of cat colouring (that or would like to meet the new girl!)

*LAUGHS* I think it is possibly the latter!!

Lovely kitty!! So fluffy!
