Maihaugen´s Greta Jasmine
tortie & white (f 09)
Her immune system is extra ordinairy good! Also her teeth and gums are
A fact that is very important to us, as it is not to be taken for granted
She even is FIP resistant!
COI only 2,07% and Polaris only 6,96%
Our grand and great
Because of the
frightening development, considering the health and extreme line breeding
these days in the NFO scene,
we started to panic a bit. To continue breeding our way, we are forced
to keep our familiar lines for our breeding and get some fresh (old) blood.
So we don´t run out of breeding cats in a few years.
Some of our breeding queens are getting of age soon...
And i simply refuse to breed with extreme line breed (in my eyes inbreed)
cats, or with cats whos health is in question!
Because we don´t know how long we can continue breeding with our
Prima, we wanted to keep
a girl from her next litter.
But when i saw Prima´s great-grandchild Greta Jasmine - or more
the look of Prima´s eyes in this little creature ;o)
i just fell in love...
And how angry i was, because our Bangerang!
is her father - so i could never use her for my males...
When i told this to her breeder, she simply responded: "So you just
need another male..."
Hmmm, and so the puzzle was solved! she was right!
I would need another male (new gene pole) anyway, in order to continue
my breeding for the next years.
Prima is irreplaceable as a cat of course, but Snoesje will take her place
as a breeding queen and there is no better way,
because Snoesje has Prima´s expression and also her temper!!!!
Her father Bangerang! is an extremely kind, tolerant and easy going BIIIIG
fellow with THE NFO expression!!!
Also she is Bubbas´
grandchild and has inherited his wonderful ears!
Next to that you find our Tinkerbell,
Smykke and Prima´s
beautiful mother: Fairytale
in her pedigree...
In the 6th generation you even find our old lady Feline!
So its our walk of fame ;o)
Crowned by the fact that a part of Loona´s
mothers line is to find in Snoesje´s mother- Dunja´s pedigree!!!!
Dunja is a clown, very sweet and very robust-healthy!!!
So to us, Snoesje is like winning the lottery, because we lost Lonna´s
I still think it´s a shame that we had to neuter our super healthy
and beautiful Lonna...
Enough of the lines
- How she got to her name?
In Germany they call cats in this colour: "Törtchen" (sweet
little pie) and in Dutch, this is a "Soesje",
if you mix in a Snoetje (snout - because of her little white snout ;o)
- you get a "Snoesje" ;o)
And a Snoesje is in Dutch a very sweet little girl... it gets funny if
you know that our Snoesje is just a tornado brat ;o) -
just like her great grandma - Prima ;o))))))
Prima means: "fine" and if Prima does something forbidden, you
call out loud: PRIMA!!! -
just as funny as to call out loud SNOESJE!!!! if she does something forbidden
We have something with names ;o)
She came into the
groop with much self confidence and she´s playing, playing and playing
Bubbas fell in love with her, seems he knows she´s his grandchild
- no wonder - she inherited much from him!
He will take good care of her, just like he always does with his offsprings.
Snoesje doesn´t like that idea, yet - but that will change and they
will get good friends -
no one can resist Bubbas´charmes ;o)
And her Prima-eyes... soooo wonderful!!!!!!
We are very curious
how this little girl will develop!
To us, she is something veeeeeeeeeeery special!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
she´s totally at home here and you can not imagine how much we laugh
about her! Simply crying tears from laughing!!!
She´s a real tornado and fooling around like a clown all the time,
but on the other hand just oh sooo sweet!!!
Very social with all our other cats and with her charmes she gets everyone
to just love her!
Even our old Feline can have a lot from her ;o)
If you call her, she comes running like a dag!
She needs to be with us in all we do (exapt taking pictures ;o)
We enjoy her soooo much ;o)
grown up: Tindra
Her second litter:
