The A-litter

Our first litter was born December 25, 2005. This was at first not at all the pleasant experience we had hoped for. Poor Shaimina proved unable to give natural birth, but had to have a Caesarean section. After that, she became very ill, and could not care properly for her three kittens.

What followed is a long story. Shaimina recovered after some days, but she had no milk. Two of the kittens were placed at another cattery with kittens born some days earlier, (N) Rolvsrudskogen's. Thanks very much to Eva, Arve and beautiful (N) Rolvsrudskogen's Cindy for coming to our rescue in these dire straits.

After many days of hand-feeding, hope one day, desperation the next, the third kitten, Aragorn, crossed the rainbow bridge on January 15, 2006, only three weeks after his birth. We miss you so much.
The very last day it looked like there was silver in your colors. But the genetically skilled keep telling us that couldn't be.

The surviving two kittens, Alice and Atlas, came along well. Alice stayed with Cindy until an age of 11 weeks, Atlas is still there.
