Siberian cat Caesar at 11 months old with baby Julian, 26 Aug 2013
We receive so many wonderful photos of our kittens in their new homes, that sometimes I fall behind on sharing them with you. But, better late than never, I have just posted some lovely photos of Caesar (ex Baxter) who lives in Otago. His mum, Jessica wrote to us last year:
Caesar is doing well! He still thinks he’s the baby of the house, though, so I think it was a bit confusing for him when our baby arrived, and he no longer had exclusive rights to my lap in the evenings from 7pm onwards.
He is an outdoor/indoor cat since we moved into this house, which came equipped with a cat door. When he comes in, he bursts through the door and announces his arrival loudly with happy meows and headbutts. At dusk Caesar comes in for the night, and we lock his door.
He’s very much a dog-like cat! If we run into each other outside on our way for a walk, he will follow us around the neighbourhood. He also goes over to the elementary school (which our son attends) daily and has gotten to know the kids there, who have named him Snowy. Inside, Caesar follows us around the house from room to room. He like to be where the action is!

A pile of cats on top of the 2m scratching post
So I was passing by the doorway to the living room, and spotted this mountain of fur on the little platform near the top of our 2-metre tall scratching post.
Getting a photo at night is tricky, especially if you want to avoid red-eyed cats, so this was the best I could do.
From left to right: Farley (with the white feet), Fitzy (that’s his head in the middle) and their mum Cici, whose ear you can see at right. The kittens are almost as big as their mum now.
I just have to smile every time I watch this video of the F Litter kittens. They have amazing energy and agility. What a team!
Update: At the 39-second mark of the video, you can see two kittens ‘fighting’ in the background while the others play with the ball. So maybe this is actually more like ice hockey than soccer.

We’ve just posted some new photos of Fitzy, as he tries out several sleeping positions in the Buka basket.
Our friend Cailin has nicknamed him “Pudding”, because he goes all boneless when you pick him up.

Our friend Cailin from Waterlily Siberians in Vancouver has been visiting us. She loves photographing cats, so has taken hundreds of photos of the F Litter kittens. Now comes the big job of sorting through them and putting the best ones online – starting with this one of Farley.
