The four P Litter kittens will be eight weeks old tomorrow. On Monday, they’ll be off to The Vets for their first vaccinations.

These little guys are growing so quickly. As you can see, Pico already wants to go to work with me!

Nuri at four months old

We received this nice note from Nuri‘s family in Auckland yesterday:

Nuri, on the climbing post that Graeme built

Nuri, on the climbing post that Graeme built, 11 Aug 2017

Nuri continues to thrive and bring such joy to our family. Graeme was enthusiastic from the first day and quickly built a super tower for Nuri to play on. Nuri takes a full-force run at the tower and swings around the pole onto the bucket. He pulls and wrestles with the toys on the bungy cords and takes them to his ‘crow’s nest’ after the final capture. He loves to be high and his location is near my desk so he can keep an eye on me and the birds flying by.

It is great to hear the stories from the other kittens and we see many personality similarities. Nuri loves to greet Kimberley when she comes home from work and settles next to her on the sofa in the evenings. Alex has not had any problems with his allergies and Nuri loves to play ping pong ball games and hide and seek with him.

We often nick name him Nuri Nu-nu when he is especially adorable, and he definitely lives up to his Instagram name Furry Purry Nuri.

We took Nuri for his neuter operation yesterday, and the vet said he was a very good patient and charmed them all with his play, despite being woozy after the op.

Thank-you again for all your nurturing and care to bring such wonderful pets to so many families.

– Jan

It’s not often that I manage to get a photo where everyone is looking the same direction. So this one has to go on the blog.

The P Kittens are doing great, with access to half the house now. They turned seven weeks old today.

Here’s that Buka basket again – one of our most popular cat toys!

Believe it or not, there are FOUR six-week-old kittens from the P Litter with their mum Hoku in each of these photos. The two black/brown tabbies are pretty hard to see.

Ollie and Hoku welcome spring sunshine

Our cats love sunshine, of which we’ve had a little bit the past few days, coinciding with the rumoured start of spring.

They also love our Buka basket which, although it now is looking pretty rough, provides a range of interesting positions for a cat to try!

Ollie, pictured here with Hoku, is available for immediate adoption to a family with mild/no allergies. If you know someone who would like to meet him, please have them get in touch with us as soon as possible.

Does your cat love the clothes airer?

Clothers Airer

I thought you might like to see these pics of Gracie taken a couple of weeks ago. I remembered that you’d had photos of your girls on the clothes airer before and I just had to get a photo!

It didn’t really look at all comfortable… I just figured it must be a Siberian thing!

Yes, it seems to be a popular spot, for girls and boys! Continue reading

K Litter kittens are one year old

The four K Litter kittens turned one year old on 31 August. To mark the occasion, here’s a video from when they were just eleven weeks old.

This was a challenging litter in that the four kittens looked quite similar, although we could tell them apart after a while.

The kittens were named Katrina, Kiska, Ksenija (now called Lexi) and Kiko (the only male). Their parents were Grand Champion Cecilia (Cici) and Harley.

The delightful seal lynx point kitten Ollie is 17 weeks old and looking for his forever-home. He’s wonderfully affectionate, with us and with his mum Ksana as you can see in these photos.

The I Litter cats turned two years old on Friday the 25th of August, and Beth (originally Indigo) got a birthday “cake” made of kitty litter.

Glad she didn’t get closer to it until the candles were extinguished!
