Hello my friends, Spot here!
I hope you’re all well? I’m sorry we’ve not been able to write our blog for a week or two, but most of you will know that our mummy and daddy went away and left us with a cat sitter! Now, the cat sitter was very nice, but she didn’t let me use my laptop, so I wasn’t able to let you have all the latest news! But we were quite good despite all of that so my mummy and daddy were pleased when they got home. They said they had a nice holiday in London and Paris, but did miss us very much
But all that’s old news now! Our other big news is that our new half-sister has been born! You can see a pic of her on our Facebook page She’s our half sister because she has the same daddy as us, Harley, but a different mummy, Flirtini. Here’s a photo of Flirtini taken yesterday:
Our new girl was born on 19 April, so she’s still very young and vulnerable at the moment She’s going to be called Tobysden Tsarena Anastasia, or Annie for short. “Tobysden” is our breeder prefix, so all cats bred by Sue our breeder have this at the beginning of their name. “Tsarena Anastasia” comes from the last Russian Tsar family – Anastasia was one of the emperor Nicholas II’s daughters. I will let you into a little secret here – the correct name for the daughter of a Tsar is Tsarevna but there’s a limit to the amount of characters you’re able to use when registering a pedigree cat with GCCF: Tobysden Tsarevna Anastasia would have 27 characters (including spaces) but the maximum is 26! So we had to drop the ‘v’. I bet none of you would have noticed if I’d not said though?
So my mummy and daddy went to see Annie yesterday, and while they were at Sue’s house, they also met some other wonderful cats, including Lucy. Lucy is also our half sister, she has the same mother (Pandora) but a different father (Sultan). Sultan is also the father of Flirtini! Lucy is now 4 months old, and I’m sure you’ll agree with me that she’s absolutely stunning!
Sue also has 2 snow Queens – Skye and Flora who are both lovely too, here they are:
We have more lovely pics from the visit yesterday, we might share some more in future! My mummy and daddy will also be going back to see Annie soon and will no doubt take some more then too!
Take care my friends!
Love from Spot
