We still have a problem with updating the pages. Changes do not succeed regading color and size on the written parts.
Also I spend time taking down the destroyed catrun parts that were smashed into bits and pieces during the hurricane. The old part works and has been closed towards the broken one. So I take it all down and prepare and clear the area for 2 new catruns we have ordered, to be added to the older part, and the parts that survived the hurricane. We do have a problem with 3-4 golden eagles ( a hatching couple and offspring. Passing my window as I`m writing. So the extended catrun must up in a hurry.
NB: The index page will not update colors or lager letters ( headlines). We try to find out why.Our computer is being used for work now. Updates only when it is free.
21 / 11 2015
NB : SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED TO THE CATS PHOTOS ON THEIR PAGES. The slide shows do not work. The pics are on the working page, but on the webside they are small, far apart and out of the page frame. So we`ll se what can be done. But we have changed the layout several times, so hopefully it will work after several updates. Sadly a lot of beautiful cat pics of our cats can at the moment not show themselves as theyt did earlier.
_NB: The letter A does work again,and all the other writings now seems
to work the right way again after the update.__

He still sleeps on my pillow each night, and into my head. Just like his brother. They change during the night, or I have one on each side. They have done that since 2 1/2 weeks old. Big springtime babies.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR DEAR ONES HAVING BIRTHDAYS DURING EASTER.
HIPP HIPP HURRAY GORGEOUS DEAR SWEETHEART AND SILVERPRINCESS
CH S* ZYGOT`S DEBBIE-DOSS NFO ns 09 24, 8 YEARS THE 28 TH OF MARCH. BEAUTIFUL DEAR SWEETHEART AND SILVERPRINCE ( KING) (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S ISAK NFO ns 09 24, 5 YEARS and OUR LOVELY FLOWER PRINCESS (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S FIORENZA NFO n 09 22, 6 YEARS.
They have all had their favorite snack. Debbie had her sardines, beef and hams + catsnack. Isak likes everything so he had it all from meat to fish and marckrell in tomato sauce :) + sardines. Fiorenza also likes most things, but she also loves meat a bit so she wants that. sadly the weather has not been that nice. Cold, grey and even snow. So pics can wait.
Our S-Litter has celebrated their first bithday. Sirius and Solrais having all their favorites. Solaris lots of everything ( different fish cooked and raw sushi style, meat and catsnack). Sirius had his huge plate of meat, but finally he also now has started to like steamed pollock with butter, and raw. And finally some freshly made mackrel and some catsnack. So he is very much like grandmother Debbie-Doss. Very choosy and it takes time for him to develope a taste for something new. Sadly Sirius has had a painful accidente, with a claw into his left eye. Hopefully he can be healed and that he will not loose his sight, but time will show. So planned pics of him will have to wait. But Solaris is a busy sweetheart, so I may take pics of him, if we have time on a nice day.
Our dear beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Fiorenza almost 6 years,outside with daddy Slode. They were playing and chasing eachother, some last sunbeams before it all became clouded.Fiorenza had been cuddeled while working, so she managed to get clay onto her fur, and then rolled around outside of course. But a wonderful sweetheart she is, now loosing her wintercoat. She`ll get more photos later on a sunny day.
Fiorenza under the cats " play" car :).
Fiorenza had to check out the food we daily give the seagulls, + crows and magpies.We feed the seagulls so that they guard and alarm (us) the cats if the eagles arrive. The birds get the rest of the cats food ( cut bones, fish/shellfish, rests of cat food etc)from inside,and old our old bread+ fruit+old cheese etc. So often the cats check if some of their favorite food has been thrown out. And often it seems MORE interesting outside, than on their own plates inside, where they always are ready for some new type of snack all day. Typical ):.
Old grapes + yesterdays meatbones makes an interesting mix for Fiorenza.
Beautiful N Myrtekransens Pelle Panther. Now neutered . 8.5 kilos and slim, loves to have his raw fish food prepared, and is ready to go on his easter holidays on the countryside to the cottage soon.Thank you so much Kristin and family for a lovely update on our gorgeous dearsweetheart, and for loving him so much. It is very sad that he has no offspring, but he is a beloved kitty boy, and that is the most important thing. HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL .
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Ophelia NFO n 09 at 3 years and 5 months.
This gorgeous pather princess has had her birthday celebrations a long time ago, but that was a dark rainy Novemer. So some sunshine pics of our black and white beauty. So that her colors and expression gets enoygh light. Ophelia is the daughter of our former hostcat (N) Myrtekransen`s Godiva NFO n 09 and IC S* Milda ma Tilde`s Speed Igor NFO n 22. Ophelia is very
special, and she is the adoptive baby of Calamity. And the " baby" sister of Nike, Kohinoor. They still wash and comfort her, and treat her like their baby. Ophelia was very very attached to her mother Godiva. So here she has conntinued to be a kitty baby. She is such a gorgeous looking wonderful ands kind panther princess. With a lovely typed head.
Our beautiful silver princess CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Byzants NFO
ns 09 24, 9 years + almost 1 month. Outside in the sun. Byzants came straight from her warm bed inside. But it is sunny today, and I wanted pics before she looses all her winter coat, now coming off in huge amounts. Byzants does not like to be outside. So she looked up all the time for eagles etc. But a wonderful sweetheart she is. I had her in a leash for pics, so that she did not run to the door all the time. She has her favorite warm bed inside + snack waiting :).
I also had Byzants and Slodes beautiful son (N) Myrtekransen`s
Isak NFO ns 09 24 out with me. But he just had his dipers taken off.
So he was very busy " marking " all over. And then to wash up a but.
Byzants and son Isak at almost 5 years
Isak is a large, very handsome and busy boy. 5 years by the end of March
Isak the boss,is loosing his winter coat just like his mother. A lovely male.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR BEAUTIFUL HURIEL DE LA FÔRET D`AMALION * BE
NFO n 09 23. Our wonderful winter princess is 4 years today. And celebrating.
Here with buddy Kohinoor 4 1/2 years, down at our little Moshi Moshi seafood "office bar" down at the dock with a view straight into the sea.
During most parts of the year the windows can be opened and fresh sea food prepared and eaten right on the spot.Today it is a sharp wind and it started to snow when we took pics. There are white tops on the waves outside the bay.So, pics in a hurry outside.Huriel and Kohinoor wanted to go back inside. From the window they can look over to the other island. Fishing boats pasing. So they can sit and dream about all the fish, shrimps and seafood coming their way. Some of the best seafood in the world. No wonder they know how to apppreciate it. It is also one of the great dive sites in Northern Europe. But that is more of an interest to us on 2 legs :) .Huriel and Kohinoor have allready had fresh pollock, some sardines with me,and are now waiting for Huriel`s birthday shrimps :)))) HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY kitty princess Huriel . So dear to us all. Amalie was next , but the wind became very freezy with large snowflakes.
Dear beautiful Huriel 4 years.
Dear beautiful Kohinoor 4 1/2 years ( the wind took off the cap)
Dear beautiful wonderful special sweetheart NO* Boote`s Amalie
Amadeus NFO w 63 7 years and wonderfully oddeyed. Being very busy at the little Mosi Mosi
seafood " office bar" on the dock. She must always investigate, and she wanted outside,
and she WANTS seafood fresh from the sea. With Amalie the wind became icing cold
and it started to snow. Then the battery ran out. So just a few of our very funny white princess.
Amalie can hear us peel shrimps through walls, and always turns up first for shrimps
/ crawfish/ crabs just like great grandmother Belinda +grandad Ariel. Climbing up our legs.She could also see the sardine snack boxes of course.So she`ll have some more shrimps with Huriel later .
sweetheart Kohinoor did not have her birthday pics because of the weather that day. So she
had some on Huriel`s birthday. Nesxt must be Ophelia. But she was sleeping with " mummy" Calamity.
We have had changing weather. So pics outside is not so easy.
Almost everyday the wind blows away chairs, tables etc.The summer kitchen
sink was blown into the wather, and must be dived for the coming summer.
So the cats do not like to go out for pics at the moment. Cold and
Beautiful Slode 7 years enjoying his sunbeams.
and some wind :)))
But it is cold so hopefully they keep some left :) . Here is Slodes son Isak. Having catnip roots.
Huge ones. So he became impossible to take pics of. He just rolled over on the ground all the time.
Yeah!!!!!! Lots of catnip roots, and then to cuddle a lot. Headbanging just like Slode.
And here comes daddy Slode 7 years, and he does just the same. Rolling over
on his head, playjumping to catch the catnip roots, chatting and then coming for lots
of cuddeling. They are super sweet. Isaks mother Byzants 9 years now, Slodes girlfriend, sleeps
inside. So her pics will come later. She loves catniproots as well, so large roots inside.
Slode with his roots, guarding them so that Isak does not take them all. They eat them aswell.
OHHH hurray, lots of roots for my birthday.
Slodes collar is almost off now, so he looks a bit punky.
* * HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR GORGEOUS DEAR SWEETHEARTS CH S* ZOGOT`S SLODE NFO 09 22 and NO* BOOTE`S AMALIE AMADEUS NFO W.
They are both 7 years to day, and celebrating. Slode has been down on the dock in the wonderful sun waiting for some fresh fish being prepared, and Amalie had shrimps and crawfish for breakfast.So they are still celebrating and have some more catsnack to come during the day. HIPP HIPP

* * HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR GORGEOUS B-LITTER ********
Our fantastic kittens born 26.06.2007 are 9 years today.
HAPPPPPY HAPPPPY BIRTDAY TO Bathseba, Bosporos, Branka, Bolshoi and our very own princess PRINCESS upper prrrrrincessss Byzants. HIPP HIPP HURRRRRRRAY !!!!
Our Super silver princess Byzats had several favoprite meals today. Crawfish freshly cooked on the dock straight up from our shores. And she had chicken in stock/ broth+ fresh fish of course. AND A LOT OF ATTENTION and CUDDLE :)))) from us, her mother Diana, her father Magni, her son Isak and grandaughter Nike.
So WE ALL WISH OUR DEAR SWEETHEARTS in the B-LITTER A WONDERFUL
BIRTHDAY. PURRRRRRRRRRRRS from mum and dad. Diana and Magni, and specially from sister Byzants, nephew Isak and grandniece Nike.
The seagulls were not at all happy today. Gathering in huge numbers chasing
the 3 eagles that arrived. First one arrived. That even "visited" me outside the opened window while sitting inside working on the computer ( I actually think it is the same one that knows me several years back now." She" is not affraid and comes at full speed if I call for "her" in a special sound. We think this might be the clever " Queen". The female is a bit larger than the male. And this one is very confidente.Not shy).It came over to check in on me, and to check our catrun as usual. Then it flew back across the bay, followed by 2 other eagles coming from the sloppe across the little road ( this is near the house where our cats play and hunt. The eagles often sit on post there also. Hidden in the heater. Then they flew up over the cliffs across, and all 3 were hunting in flight glides , circeling and " hanging" in the air above the bay. Being chased by huge schools of seagulls that filled the air acctually.One from the fish farm told me they had seen 4-5 eagles.It seems to be like we thought.An eagle family. They come every day now. And the seagulls go into large groups, while the hearons gather on the ground. The seagulls are so many that they cover the whole bay area.Quite a spectacle. It all happened very fast. And then it went back to normal. So if one does not know how to read the seagulls and birds, one will miss it. Svein-Erik was in his office right under down on the dock, and did not see the 3 eagles at all. He tought the sea gulls came for a fish feeding.
Beautiful super kind GIC (N) Selteteigen`s Magni NFO ns 24, at 11 1/2 years.
I took him out for some pics, but the wind came in on him from many directions, so his
fur went into a messy hairdo all the time. But he always looks super cool in his winter coat.
great catnip root
OPS the wind coming in from behind, not that fun :))) .
Magni loves to cuddle, and just wanted to run to me and stand by my feet all
the time. Then came the rain as well. So he got his catnip roots with him inside.
Both wind and a shower of rain, and a storm on it`s way.
Time to go back inside to his warm places.
Beautiful buddies Sirius NFO n 09 22 and Ne Me Quitte Pas NFO as 23 were outside playing
today. Haifa and Slode guarding. And guess what Ne Me Quitte Pas LOOOVES.Well, a large catnip root of course. And yes he eats them, all of it. And rolls around all over the rock he sits on.So he was very happy.Then they ran around playing and chatting. Wonderful sweethearts. Sirius has stopped drinking milk. He only wants raw meat all the time in stead :))).
Kolya did not have his birthday pics together with Kohinoor
on their 4 th birthday.But today we tried with grandmother Calamity`s
hat on .And a large catnip root. Then it started to rain. So just a few
funny pics of dear beautiful Kolya. The catnip root was great so he`ll
get it back inside.His sister and Ophelia is next I think.
Well, the eagles are visiting. Sadly my camera was stuck at first in the pc pic. converter, when one of them glided in front of our window and me, before landing on the small island a cross. I do not have a real zoom. So this says something about the size. Actually, looking like a person sitting on top of the large old pintrees in the old wildforest. The the bird and the wingspan is enourmous. So it lookes like a large dragon landing on the tree tops with it`s wingspan fully streched out. I thought it was was only one this time, but they both surrounded the house from the little hill top behind us, where they ofthen sit and hide in the heather before their glide hunting above us and the catrun. This is a typical favoured weather for the eagles. A clear sky and a nice updrift to glide on during their hunts. I could see that there were 2 from the pics. They often hunt together, but changing their positions and meet before they decide and come in an attack both of them. So a greeting from the 2 hunters, that sadly are dangerous / fatal to our dear ones.Impressive, wild and free, gliding over us proudly. Still. Guarding the activites in the house area and catruns.
(N) MYRTEKRANSEN WISH YOU ALL
******A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016******
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Our dear gorgeous CH (F) / S* Wonderwood`s Calamity Jane NFO n 09 23 will be 9 years. And she also has had her hat made, but she had no plans for snow pics today as a greeting to her dear breeder and old family at S* Wonderwoods in France. So the hat had to be hold on to her head a bit from behind. But she was more interested in tasting the snow and to go for a quick walk away from it all straight back inside. Calamity does nooooot like snow :))). But a wonderful super cool great looking princess she is. And very funny. Chatting all the way.
NO WAY !!!! The snow is cold and Calamity is on her way to jump down, and run inside to her warm places.
Happy NEW YEAR from Huriel de la Fôret d`Amalion BE* to her dear mummy Camargue and daddy Viking in Belgium.
And her best nose kisses and sweetest greetings to dear mum and dad on 2 legs, Francoise and Serge at Cattery De la Frôret d`Amalion in Belgium. Huriel has her little Hussar hat on. We do feel that this little princess would love a white horse for Christmas. She loves to watch Cinderella for Christmas :))) Then she runs all over the place chatting to me and to the music.In many stables I have been, cats love to sit on the horses back and cuddle. If we have "3 nuts for Cinderella on " or the Disney versions + Snow white with the dwarfs, she runs along with her friends , and " singalong" with buddy / adoptive mum Calamity. Calamity though being number 1 in intensity and " singing". So a happy new year from our dear beautiful Huriel on a freezing cold day in Norway.
No snow but freezing cold , and Huriel in need of a warm hat :))). This is fake fur of course since we are against the fur industry.
Some pics of Solaris and Sirius out playing while we had a break from rain/ or snow.
NB: We use enviormentallly friendly cat sand that does not harme the cats or nature, and can be recyceled. So our cats have " peachy pink "paws on their white parts.
A busy Solaris having fun climbing our pinetrees. A wonderful charmer !!!!!!!!!!!!
Brother Sirius always makes himself look a bit having been doing his own hairdoo. He LOOOVES to roll over all the time everywhere,
into everything while chatting. So, well as always, a bit the way he " likes it", and a wonderful charmer as well :))))).
A very busy Solaris
Solaris busy climbing while Sirius is busy underneath the tree, checking old clamshells.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR FANTASTIC A-LITTER .

Beautiful Sirius outside playing with Isak NFO ns 09 24 last week. But now I finally managed to download the pics.
Isak outside guarding and playing, and having lots of fresh catnip roots. He LOVES to eat them.
Jummy jummy. Isak has had a large catnip root.
New pics this afternoon, a bit dusky and but Isak had great fun with his half nephews Solrais and Sirius. Guarding them together whit greatgrandad Haifa and grandad Slode. Isak has just started to grow his lovely winter coat. Getting denser and his collar on its way.
Isak is our most busy boy. He is very active, and looks a bit funny being to large to climb up the tree before he speeds off around my legs.
Leaving me with a lot of unclear pics. Isak is tall, heavy,long and very muscular.
MR. Happyminded Busyboy Isak :))) .
Solaris had a great timing playing with the playstick made ffrom the catnip branch. He too loves to eat it.
Catnip fan Solaris
More fresh catnip please
Sirius was more interested in running all over playing with Isak.
Beautiful Solaris waiting for more catnip and observing busy Sirius and Isak
Isak was very busy, and busy guarding the birds. Seagulls and the herons complaining all the time. They have such screams.
But luckily no eagles today. Isak will be 5 years by the end of March.
Beautiful Slode almost 7 years hanging out on his favorite stone. Having had some catnip roots. Enjoying himself guarding his
son Isak and grandsons.
Here Slode on his stone and buddy Haifa on his beside him. Both guarding their grandsons and greatgrandsons.
Haifa had his catniproot also, so he was almost impossible to take pics of. He was headbanging on to his stone and rolled around on it as usual.
Leaving a very strange hairdo.
Beautiful Haifa will be 8 years, and looks very funny using the flash.
Our lovely boys Haifa NFO ns and Slode NFO n 09 22, guarding their great grandsons ( Haifa) and son + grandsons ( Slode).
from their 2 favorite stones. and having control of Svein-Erik preparing fresh pollack down on the dock. And having control on the bird life of cours.
Haifa looking very serious and very funny in his self styled catnip hairdo.
Beautiful Solaris NFO n 02 23 was super busy. Playing, running, climbing and chewing on bushes and branches. Then came the rain again, and of cours it became dark. So just a short trip.
Beautiful Sirius NFO n 09 22 being very busy playing. Then came the wind and then some rain.
So Ophelia may have to wait.She must use a leash.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR FANTASTIC K-LITTER and OUR FANTASTIC OPHELIA from MALENE`S O-LITTER.
Kolya and Kohinoor 4 YEARS on the 20 Th of November. And Ophelia 3 years on the 12 th of November.
HIPP HIPP HURRAY TO GORGEOUS (N) Myrtekransen`s Kaspar NFO n 23, (N) Myrtekransen`s Kohinoor NFO ns 03 23 and (N) Myrtekransen`s Kolya NFO n 09 23.
And also HIPP HIPP HURRAY TO OUR FANTASTIC HOST LITTER at MALENES. Our gorgeous O-Litter.
(N) Myrtekransen`s Orpheus NFO n, (N) Myrtekransen`s Opus NFO n, (N) Myrtekransen`s Olympia NFO n 23 and our own panther beauty and dear dear kindhearted sweetheart (N) Myrtekransen`s Ophelia NFO n 09.
Ophelia had of course a great day, having all her favorite snack, but most of all she had a great day with all her best buddies and adoptive mum Calamity. Her best buddies loves her, so she is like a baby sister to Nike, Kohinoor, Penelope and loves to play all over with buddy Huriel. Ophelia is off the pill, so she must be in a leash for pics outside. But the weather has not been so nice lately. So I+ ll try pics on a nice day. Ophelia is black, and looks better outside in daylight and the sun. Rather not with a flash inside. But OPHELIA is FANTASIC, she send off her best greetings to her old catfamily at Malenes, Malene, Rita and family. And to her mother Godiva and sister Olympia. She needs new pics soon.
Our gorgous siblings Kohinoor and Kolya had a great day, with their snack and a lot of cuddeling as usual. The weather has not been great, so pics later. But we wish our dear dear wonderful sweethearts all the best and love them so very very much.
I tried to take new pics of Belinda outside, but she did not like all the birds arriving, and wanted back inside. We feed the seagulls to make them guard the area when the eagles come. The seagulls scare away the eagles and chase them by their tail feathers. So when the seagulls see us they come straight away for a snack.
Later I will make pages for Ne Me Quitte Pas and the litter pages. But I fear that if I move his pics to a new side, they will disappear . So I have to find a way to put his grown up / and kitty pics safe.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY 3/11 2015.
GIC (N) BLOMSTERDALEN`S BELINDA NFO w 62
Our fantastic Belinda 11 years. I try to take pics outside. But she just runs to the catrun door, and wants to go back inside to her warm places. No wonder, it is colder now, and changing weather with sudden rain and clouds. Belinda is such a wonderful dear dear BEAUTIFUL sweetheart. Here with her Mummi scarf on that Svein-Erik bougt. She loves to put hear head into warm clotes like this, and walks around with what she has put on. So instead of a large pink ribbon, she looks pretty cool in her Mummi scarf from Finland.
Beautiful Belinda ( = Bella Linda. Named after Blomsterdalen`s daughter ) greets her dear old catfamily at (N) Blomsterdalen Norwegian Forest Cats.
She is still the queen ( sharing with Tabitha (2) and Calamity (3), in that order), and busy being so every day. And a super charmer as always, running at full speed, and climbing all over on 3 functional legs. With her forth stiff one maneuvering as a balancing leg. So she is living happily with an attitude and style of a fresh youngster still. Belinda prefers to take a short walk outside the house after sunset. If we are outside working with something. But mostly she loves to be busy inside in the cats climbing toys and cuddle a lot. Belinda LOVES attention. And a fish / shrimp snack.
No, cold and on it`s way to rain suddenly. Belinda wants to go back inside ASP.
Not even the catrun is interesting. She wants her catnap in her warm cat bed. And to check out some snack after all her
1-2-3 and Belinda jumps down, and runs inside :)))) .
11 YEARS , and very busy having fun. Belinda has had her plate of shrimps, grilled chicken and her tuna fish. AND A SHOWER. Sadly the weater was to grey and rainy for her trip to her table at the cats " Viennese" outdoor cafe, or pics. So pics on the first coming sunny day :)))) . But she had a great day, and LOOOOVED it as usual.
We LOVE HER SO VERY VERY MUCH OUR DEAR GRAND WHITE TORTIE.
ALSO THE WARMEST CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR DEAR GORGEOUS J-LITTER 4 YEARS TODAY.
HIPP HIPP HURRAY to JULIUS, JOSEPHINE, JAQUELINE, JELENA and JASPER. And our dearest Jolanda. WE hope they all had a fantastic day. Just like beautiful Julius.

Sadly we also had a memory day, lighting candels at the garve of Maximus, that was suddenly taken from us, hit by a car on this the very same stary evening the 3/11-2014. Luckily we found him, still wearing his up and go diper. So we know in fact at what time with in the hour he died on the 3 of November last year. And there fore we placed canle lights on his grave also today to rememer this great silver tiger male and gorgeous cat.
But HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE
FANTASTICALLY BEAUTIFUL JULIUS at 4 Years.
Thank you Anne and family for loving him so much.
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Ne Me Quitte Pas NFO as 23, at 2 years and 3 months. Having a great time with us
buddy Kolya, grandad Haifa, Slode and his 2 half nephews Sirius and Solaris.
Beautiful (N) Solaris NFO n 02 23. 6 1/2 months. Having a great time playing and waiting for his seafood, fresh crayfish.
Solaris having fun trying to catch and eat the straws I play with
The beautiful brothers (N) Myrtekransen`s Sirius NFO n 09 22 and beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Solaris NFO n 09 23 outside to play and to have
freshly made crayfish for a snack.
Sirius looks so much more like Calamity Jane`s mother`s lines and more like half grandaunt Nike ( Hieronymus /half aunt Penelope) and Solaris much more like Haifa and aunt Kohinoor / or our A-litter. Very funny. They are starting to get their new fur now as well. Sirius with more and longer fur at the moment, and Solaris more like our A-Litter and Kohinoor in type. But just gorgeous both of them. And such lovely kind boys.
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Sirius NFO n 098 22. Finally he had more time than usual, so some pics more of him.
Solaris is almost always in the mood for photos, but this time he was looking at the crayfish and had less time. Sirius was sunbathing.
Great grandad Haifa with grandson Solaris. Having a great time in the sunny afternoon and by some fresh fish on its way direct in one
sudden catch out of the sea. ( NB. The mackrel was taken care of immedeately and suffered as little as possible.
We love to dive among fish , so to us if we are fishing at all, it is mportant of make a super quick sudden end with as little suffer ( non at all) as possible).
Daddy Kolya checking his sons Sirius and Solaris favorite food. Fresh mackrel newly fished right from our dock.
Solaris is the one that is the most interested. And he can not wait ........... .
OUR WONDERFUL dear sweetheart (N) Myrtekransen`s Ne Me Quitte Pas NFO as 23 . He became 2 years in July.
Hehas had his breeding male checke, and dated Huriel shortly since she was false pregnant. But Huriel may be on her way into a heat again.
So we`ll see. And so is Tabitha. He can date Nike, Tabitha, Calamity Jane, Huriel,Joy Miller and Amalie+ Penelope. So we do at the moment think a bit.
This happy bird had one of Svein-Eriks lost catch, a great looking mackrel :))) .
Grandad Slode guarding grandchildren Sirius and Solaris while sunbathing
Solaris busy walking around with his " catch" , a great chunk of fresh mackrel.

We hope they all had a wonderful day with a lot of cuddeling and favorite snacks.
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Nike NFO ns 09 23 at 3 years and in a summer coat.Not so fun to be in the leash I found. It was almost to small for her. But she thought it ok after a while. And a gorgeous long,large and wonderful girl she is.
New pics of beautiful Nike in a leash outside. But the computer has been busy at work, and is being updated. So download and to update with pics are at the moment a tricky jobb. Nike had a lot of cuddle on her birthday by us her mummy Calamity, daddy Isak, grandmum Byzants , great grandmother Diana+ great grandfather Magni,and her buddies. So she had a great day. With a lot of her favorite food. Steamed chicken, meat and fresh mackrel. She is just so lovely and such a dear sweetheart
Beautiful Solaris a wonderful busy kitty boy playing with Isak and daddy Kolya up and down the tree.
Fresh mackrel NOW please
Haifa guarding his great grandsons together with Isak in his summer coat, and grandad Slode + daddy Kolya. They were so busy all over and also had a great fish meal aswell. So a very nice afternoon for the boys.
Haifa was also so busy cuddeling and headbanging into the fishtable, that he ended up with a funny hairdo as usual
As one can see some updates. Having had very much work to do as usuall this summer. Pics had to wait. And new pics of (N) Myrtekransen`s Ne Me Quitte Pas NFO as 23, now 2 years will also come.
ALSO HIPP HIPP HURRAY TO OUR GORGEOUS E-LITTER.

We wish all these wonderful lovely sweethearts all the best, and hope they all
had a wonderful birthday on the 13 th of August.
Our dear teddybear tiger girl (N) Myrtekransen`s Mouna NFO n 23, 3 years 25 th of July, had no time for taking pics among the wildflowers I picked for Diana. She just wanted to play with me and mummy Tabitha in the background and cuddle. Being a baby tiger teddybear.
On her birthday, I was working night and day. So no pics. But here is our beloved M-Litter girl Mouna. We have not dared to let her outside after we lost Maximus in November. She is a heavy lovely girl. 6 kilos +.
(N) Myrtekransen`S Solaris NFO n 02 23
(N) Myrtekransen`s Sirius NFO n 09 22
Sirius NFO n 02 23 and Solaris NFO n 09 22 are beautiful great charmers.
Taking after different lines in their pedigree. Solaris looks more like grandmother Aurora`s sister Anastasia or great grandad Haifa ( aunt Kohinoor) while Sirius looks mabye more like grandad Hieronymus ( after Calamitys mother Satis) ( or also great grand uncle Ariel). It is so funny. And Solaris looks at the moment like a porcupine. Having a lot of new guard hairs coming all over his body.
Beautiful DK Elikington`s Joy Miller NFO ns 02, is taking a huge interest in the 2 boys. Treating them as her babies at the moment. Super sweet.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR BEAUTIFUL CH (N) STJERNEN`S DIANA NFO n 09 24.
Diana was 10 years on the 22 of August. She had her favorites of cours and lots of cuddeling. So meat, fish, cat snack, grilled chicken and tunafish.She only prefers staying inside now. But I had her out in the catrun with her buddies, beloved Magni and her daughter Byzants. Diana has not quite recovered from her fear of being outside after she was scared away many years ago. And she fears the eagles we know. She gets very aware even if the seagulls fly over us and chat above. So this year I just let her feel safe and protected inside the house. That is the way she wants it now. She is such a beloved kind sweetheart. SO HIPP HIPP HURRRRAY DEAR DEAR DIANA. Diana sends off her loveliest purrrrrs to her dear breeder Anita Skofteby ( Jonhanesen) and all her offspring, grand children and great grandchildren.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR LOVELY SWEETHEART GIC (N) SELTETEIGEN`S MAGNI NFO ns 24.
Magni had lots of mackrel the following days, so he was super happy.
He`ll get new pics. Because my camera shut down in the strong light after these 4 pics. And a sweetheart he is.
Magni is 11 years today 8/8 and celebrating with Svein-Erik barbecuing down at the dock. Magni is also waiting for Svein-Erik to fish his favorite meal.Fresh mackrel prepared raw shushi style. Magni has had mackrel served sveral days now and looooves it.
He is so dear kind and sweet. I took some pics, but I `m so busy. And Svein-Erik must show me his PC reprograming, where to find the new pics.
ANYWAY HIPP HIPP HURRAY DEAR DEAR BEAUTIFUL MAGNI, on your beautiful sunny summerday. Love you soooo much.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR FANTASTIC M-LITTER 3 YEARS TODAY THE 25 th of JULY. And to OUR GORGEOUS Q-KITTEN.
THE VERY BEST WISHES TO GORGEOUS SILVER TIGER (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S MAXIMILIAN NFO ns 23, our own GORGEOUS TEDDY BEAR PRINCESS GIRL (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S MOUNA NFO n 23 and to our WONDERFUL and SWEETHEARTED SPECIAL BLUEBOY and SILVER TIGER
(N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S NE ME QUITTE PAS NFO as 23. And of course it is sad to think that last summer our great silvertiger Maximus enjoyed himself basking in the sun on his birthday planning all his dates. So lots of sweet memories to keep about him in our hearts.
We know they all had a great day. Mouna and Ne Me Quitte Pas were planned taken pics of outside ( Mouna in a leash), but because of the eagles trying to attack Solaris and me at midday, I did not want to take them out after that. Mouna has spent her day with different snacks and is at the moment enjoying herself in the fish hall, where it is nice dry and warm at the moment because of some kilns that are fiering. She seems to be on her way into heat as well. Hopefully not right now. We wish to see what happens to Huriel. Or she,Penelope, Ophelia,Nike or Kohinoor is next in plans. She has been a cuddeling big chatty kitty teddy bear all day as usual. And knowing Maximilian and his dear family, it has been the same way. Ne Me Quitte Pas the same snacks, but has been around my feet chatting , playing with his half nephews and a trip outside after dark with buddy Kolya. Lots of hipp hurray and purrrrs from mummies Tabitha and Debbie-Doss,daddy Gregorius, grandad Haifa and great great grand mother Belinda. Half sister and half brother Penelope and NMP `s half sister and brother Kohinoor and Kolya..
Also we MUST NOT FORGET HUGE CONGRATS and HIPP HIPP HURRAY TO OUR GORGEOUS D-LITTER on the 17 th of JULY.
We all wish WONDERFUL (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S DYRE NFO ns 24 and WONDERFUL (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S DAVID NFO ns 09 25 THE VERY BEST. And hope they both had a great day. Mummy Byzants, grandmother Diana, grandad Magni half brother Isak and halfgrand niece Nike sends off their warmest purrrrs and proud greetings to the lovely boys. HIPP HIPP HURRAY !!!!! .
Beautiful Solaris 17 weeks and just as gorgeous as his brother. Solaris loves to sleep on your body as well, and to take the whole pillow from side to side.
Solaris is first in everything and must always check out what we have on the plate and what I do for work. He is so playful and lovely.
( And yes, we think he has more of Haifa`s look than his brother. That may look more like our A-litter or Hieronymus. A slight difference. But Haifa had also very special eyes as a kitten. Lovely ).
Here the seagulls started to flock and scream, so something was wrong.
This is the favorite stones of Juventus. That he used to sunbask on.
So suddenly the eagles came in a direct attack, and no more pics today.
That is how fast it goes. 1 quiet glide. And when they are two, like this dark and older experienced ones, that is dangerous.
I just had a horrible experience with the eagles again. We have not seen them so much here now due to some work on the electric wires using helicopters. But the other week I was driving and passed the place I used to take a walk, where I took pics of them hunting sheep/ lambs, coming towards me and an other lady behind me. It was flying in a very strange way and close towards the ground with seagulls chasing it by the the tail feathers. In its claws it had a dark colored cat. Most likely dead, and almost the size of the bird itself. So quite a chock in 80 km pr. hour. I could not do anything, it was on it`s way up in the air towards its camera protected nest in the mountain area.
So today from out of nowhere on the other side. They must have seen the activites with Sirius and Fiorenza earlier and waited.
Because suddenly in just a glide,they came in an attack straight towards Solaris jumping on and off the small rock and me sitting on the ground taking the pics. I had to just grab him, and see to that they did not come towards me.
We also had what we think might have been a sudden attack on Ne Me Quitte Pas just a couple of weeks ago. He was outside with us, but went ashort trip up on the field. He had marks after a grip along the spine / back and was affraid. But he healed fine with no inner damage. So this still a threat to animals here. We feed the seagulls, and luckily they actually alarmed me and also activly attacked the eagles that took off upwards over our house in an other direction. These were the older ones, the parents.
On the pics they were leaving, and it all happened so fast that I did not know if I had them into the photos. Here one can see one of the seagulls chasing them.
The eagles came back the day after, both checking in on us us from the small hill top.Then they took off towards its other place.
This is 3 weeks after the eagle attack on Ne Me Quitte pas.This are the wounds along the spine on his back. He is no longer tender or swollen around the back and abdomen. His wounds are healing and without infection now. And he plays and eats and is otherwise in a great shape recovering. So to those that think that that this is an invention, not real. Well, Juventus was threated at the vets for the same deep wounds right before we lost him. We also have pictures of Juventus wounds on his throat / neck somewhere, because of the suspicion of an eagle attack at the time ( and then we all started to wonder). His was though even much deeper ,and around his throath + neck+ top of head, inces from being fatal. But he healed very well, and was otherwise happy and all fine. So he had his new breeding male health check and was ready to date Calamity Jane, waiting for her heat .This was right after Ariel had been fataly attacked. And we started to look out suspecting eagles. We have found and kept parts of Jolanda, from up on the fields of the small hillside. Her fur ( her colors easy to identify being classic tabby cold in tone with white ), some of her teeth/jaw, and in an other place part of a scull. Hieronymus had several times a very tender abdomen, and then fur falling off. He reacted to Svein-Erik spreading his arms while taking on his dark coat. That may have recemeled large dark wings to him (?). And we could not understand why.
So this is no joke. Sadly ..... .
This is a grip with 4 punctures ( a smaler less deep above the others to the right) And this was an attack right behind / to the side of us. Like with Jolanda. On a sunny clear day with a mild wind.Sadly I heared Jolanda though. And Ariel had the same punctures of the skinn , but around his neck. Ne Me Quitte Pas has been very lucky. And we must keep them so close that we can see them now if outside. The seagulls always warn us by the way. So we feed them everyday.
Beautiful Sirius. 17 weeks and a busy kitty boy that loves to play, and he loves fresh meat of all sorts. So the 24 hours milky days are long gone finally. But he sleeps around our necks and around our heads still and loves to be cuddeled a lot.
Wonderful sweetheart. Summer greeting from kitty boy Sirius.
Proud mummy Fiorenza guarding. Back on the pill after being kept inside after Jolandas tragic eagle incidente 2012. So she enjoys the sun and her sweet sons playing with us outside. Svein-Erik does not at all want her neutered, and I happily agree. Though we now know it means bottle feeding, if a new litter arrive later. So she will be kept fertile for as long as we can. Regarding the use of the pill with adviced breaks from it. Dear sweetheart.
A very very sad day.
Sadly BEAUTIFUL LARGE GORGEOUS (N) Myrtekransen`s Pelle Panther
was neuterted today. Without having any offspring. This is soooo sad. He is wonderful. Well over 8 kilos at 2 years as a slim fertile male.
With the fantastic unique lines after Hieronymus and Tabitha. He has a wonderful life with his family, but I still regrett letting him go of course.
We tried with Huriel. Planned with Amalie, that did not run until suddenly a short period after nearly 2 years off the pill. And we have hoped that he could have had a couple of litters outside the cattery since we only have few litters and Huriel + Amalie did not come into heat again , or into heat at the most possible times. Our other girls are related. But we were starting to thinking of Ophelia now.
SO SORRY to those that may have looked at him for their girl now. His dear family that has made so much effort to keep him fertile for a limited period, could not keep him as a fertile male anymore. He is a after all a dear family cat.
He is neutered today. We are so sad and sorry Pelle that we did not manage to get your date to you in time. So some tears for that nutering .But we wish you all the luck as a great lovely relaxed neutered family boy.
(N) Myrtekransens Ambrosius NFO e 09 23 sends us his summer card greetings from his relaxed and sunny holiday with his dear family.
So (N) Myrtekransen WISH YOU ALL A WONDERFUL SUMMER TIME.
With the lovely images sent us from " catmum" Jane, of a happy minded Ambrosius . The Lion King, or more likely a cool tiger due to his mackrel tabby markings. He `s at the moment enjoying his life by the sea as a beloved BIG kitty boy in Southern Norway. :)))))) This is just great. He is gooooorgeous. We LOOOOOVE cream NFOs. Thanks a lot Jane. It is wonderful to see him having such a great time with you all. Mummy Belinda is up next for pics mabye. But in her funny summer hairdo.
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Ambrosius NFO e 09 23, 8 1/2 years.
Ambrosius having a great time on his holiday. Being called the King of Hafsund. That fits him very well we think. After all both our families have been in this area for holidays over generations now. And my aunt and uncle met Ambrosius in his leash on his way to the cottage some years ago. They have always had NFO`s , and now a blue tortie British Shorthair.So it is pretty cool that Ambrosius is " The Lion King" of the area. Our own Ludvig was the king in this area for many years.All our cats have always taken their holidays here. All the way back to my grand mother and grand fathers cats ..... :) Coming by boat the first years since the II World War. So we wish beautiful cream lion Ambrosius and his family, A GREAT TIME and A WONDERFUL SUMMER HOLIDAY. PURRRS from
his mummy "Queen" Belinda. That earlier has been spending her summer holidays to the left a cross the bay, and also further out towards the sea on the right side.
Having a great time hanging out with the guys barbecuing. He is living as as a beloved neutered boy in Telemark.Svein-Erik just visited him, and finally remembered to take some snap shots with the mobile phone (sadly the pics are not that clear).He loves his family,his best friend the Irish Setter and the garden territory. And he loves visiting his new buddy, the neighbors little dog . He looks like he is in a relaxed summer style and mood. He is so BEAUTIFUL and LOVELY. Thank you so much to Pernille, Jenny Kristine, Jane & Bent. And off cours his guardian friend/ adoptive mum , the Irish Setter lady. She is very proteciv of him, treats him like her own baby :)))). Thank you all, for loving him so much. WOW !!!!!!! HE IS A FANTASTIC VERY LARGE CREME NFO!!!!!! His mother Belinda at 10 years and 8 months sends off her warmest purrrrs to her dear beautiful son in Telemark. And so do his niece Fiorenza, his grand nephews Gregorius,Sirius and Solaris. And great grand nieces Amalie, Mouna, and Ophelia and great grand nephew Ne Me Quitte Pas. And mabye at the moment a great grand niece/nephew in the tummy of our Huriel. They all send off all their purrs :))).
There may be more pics on it`s way :)))) .

2 busy boys having a great time being guarded by daddy Kolya, mummy Fiorenza, grandads Slode and Haifa and best buddy Ne Me Quitte Pas :)))).
Buddy , half uncle and daddy Kolya`s best friend . Ne Me Quitte Pas.
News under : PLANS
It seems that Huriel de la Fôret d`Amalion NFO n 09 23 expects her first kitten/ kittens with CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Gregorius NFO ns. As his last litter. Around the 26- 27 of July.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR TWO FANTASTIC GIRLS CALAMITY and TABITHA .
BEAUTIFUL CH (F) /S* WONDERWOODS CALAMITY JANE NFO n 09 23 ,8 YEARS TODAY
AND BEAUTIFUL TABITHA D`HAAKONA CH* NFO n 24, 5 YEARS TODAY.
I tried to take them out in a leash. Our old cat Ludvigs larger dog leash actually.That was not Calamity`s plan. She called all the time for " her" babies. So that was straight back into bed. Tabitha on the other hand loved it , and was very good at it. Even after all these years with no training in a leash.
Calamity and Tabitha
Calamity had nooooo time for this. Where are the babies, Nike, Penelope, Kohinoor and Ophelia.
There is Solaris . Calamity cleaning again. And Sirius coming for milk.
Solaris loves the attention, but Sirius only comes for milk all the time.
Screaming for a new bottle of milk :)))). Still.
MIIIIILK , NOW !!!!!!!
Tabitha having a great time, and walked around. And she wanted to jump up and into the fields behind the house of cours, but I had to go inside.
So a few more pics from the catrun.
Tabitha inside the catrun, and sadly with less collar at the moment.
But both Calamity and Tabitha and the others are on their way to their
They have stared the day with all their different snacks of course. 2 types of meat, fish and cat snack. Later Calamity must have her shrimps, and Tabitha
some chicken. We love them so very very much, and we`ll hope they have a wonderful day. Though not outside. Calamity and Tabitha are at the moment off the pill. But Calamity has a great time being busy being a great grand mother to Sirius and Solaris, so she sleeps in our bed with her daughter Nike and grandaughter Penelope+Kohinoor nad adoptive daughter Ophelia. They all take care of the kittens and at the same time behave as Calamity`s kittens as a " litter". So lots of sounds chatting and purring all over. Just like Calamity loves it. Fiorenza looks very proud, but they have taken over the baby sitting. Tabitha has had a heat, but the male was in his diper. She has had her collar eaten off. But she is just wonderful and enjoys her birthday with her daughters and friends. She has taken a great part in the interest of the kittens as well, but is now relaxing a bit after her heat.
I have a pretty busy day today. So just some new pics of Calamity and Tabitha in summer coats.
BEAUTIFUL SIRIUS NFO n 09 22. 12 weeks. Busy outside in the changing weather, waiting for the sun and some action. And a bottle of milk :))) .
Stil a bit cold and windy, with clouds. So Sirius had only a little sun, but fun.
BEAUTIFUL SOLARIS NFO n 02 23. Almost 12 weeks .Having a little bit of sun while outside on a stroll. Wondering about fishing :)))) .
BUT Tabitha has had a very sweet greeting from her wonderful daughter
(N) Myrtekransen`s Pernille NFO n 23. Living in Oslo.
Here is the gorgeous dear Pernille 2 years and 1 month.
Thank you so much Theresa and family for loving her so much and for such a sweet summer greeting on mummy Tabithas` birthday. SHE IS JUST WONDERFUL.

Finally the computer has a short break from working projects. So some brief updates :)))).
HIPP HIPP HURRAY TO OUR GORGEOUS P-LITTER. 2 Years yesterday on the 23 of May.
OUR BEST WISHES TO OUR DEAR BEAUTIES (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S PANTHERA PETRA, (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S PELLE PANTHER, (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S PERNILLE, (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S PAVEL and OUR VERY OWN DEAR TIGER PRINCESS PENELOPE. We hope they all had a great day.
Mummy Tabitha and all of their family send off their warmest purrrrrrs.
Our own wonderful tiger girl Penelope had all our Rhododendrons flowering on her day, and she had all her different dishes and snacks. She is very busy at the moment with the kittens Sirius and Solaris. She has nearly taken them over. But now she is a bit more relaxed and enjoyed playing with her buddies on her birth day. SO HIPP HIPP HURRAY TO OUR GORGEOUS P-LITTER. All the best of wishes to them all from all of us.
Penelope outside in a leash, not at all fun :)))) .
Some inside at first because it rained again, and she had her catnip roots to enjoy.
She is GORGEOUS, and knows it :). This is what she thinks of taking pics :)).
They are two wonderful and active boys. Solaris loves meat, both use the kitty litter tray, but Sirius only wants his bottles of milk. Drinking it in his very own way. Getting milk all over himself all the time. They are so sweet.
Beautiful Sirius. 8 weeks having milk all over himself all day.
So he often has a sticky and funny hairdo. But such a sweet heart.
Beautiful Solaris. 8 weeks. He loves only meat at the moment.
So milk is not his only food. And he is such a sweet heart.
Solaris had no time for profile pics as usual,so he needed to be held quickly and to have some of all his forhead fur pulled back a bit. But that was not
at all what he had in his mind. Rather to play with the toy I had :))).
VI HAR 2 NYDELIGE SKOGKATTUNGER på 8 uker nå. Mulig interesse.
Dette er dessverre Fiorenzas siste kull. Hun har ikke nok melkekjertler ( grunnet melkekjertel infeksjon m. operasjon v. siste kull 2011 ( hun ble den gang grundig undersøkt i alle organer og generelt / ønsket for kull senere av veterinær.Dessverre viser det seg nå, at hun ikke mulighet til å gi nok mors melk, og over tid, til sine kattunger. Så hun steriliseres etter kattungene er avvendt. Dette er siste avkom etter vår CH (N) Myrtekransens` Aurora. Eneste etter kombinasjonen Aurora og CH* Zygot`s Slode. Så vemodig dette. Hun har ikke vært ute siden datter Jolanda ble tatt av ørn, så nå skal hun få gå ut litt under oppsyn da. Som lykkelig kastrat :))).
WE HAVE 2 BEAUTIFUL Norwegian Forest Cat KITTENS
There is an interest but it is undecided wich one. So feel free to contact.
Sadly this will be the last litter of our dear beautiful Fiorenza. She will be neutered after the kittens are ready to move.Since we now know that she has no milk for her kittens ( due to a milk spray infection 2011, she had an operation taking away the infected mammary glads). The veterinarians wished to save her for later litters ( she charmed them a lot :) ). So she was then thouroughly checked all over at the clinic, and the veterinareans did not want her neutered then). But we now now she only has milk for the first 2 1/2 weeks, mostly only for 1 kitten. Luckily she only had 2 beautiful kittens that are being bottle fed at the moment.So this is sadly her last kittens before being neutered.

OUR WONDERFUL SPRINGTIME LITTER IS 7 WEEKS NOW. Being very busy playing. Or cuddeling. And they come after us all the time, and sleep around our heads in bed. Super sweet.
Fiorenza has no more milk so they both have bottle milk still. But they run to mummy for comfort and try to sip milk of cours. Fiorenza is a fantastic mother, so they get all the love and care they need , though not milk.Food is not interesting yet. But they have started to use the cat litter.
They have taken their first bath / great wash today. Sirius has his own way of drinking from the milk bottle, making him full of fatty and sticky kitty milk in his collar and around his cheek/wiskers. And they both enjoy playing in the kitty cat litter tray with the terra cotta cat sand. So Solaris was peachy/pinkish all over his white parts. AND finally at least Solaris has started to enjoy meat, not only milk. Hopefully Sirius will copy kitty him soon :)))).
Beautiful SIRIUS 7 weeks.
Beautiful SOLARIS 7 weeks
Beautiful CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Gregorius NFO ns 5 years.
It is a lovely sunny day today, so I tried to take some pics of him outside.
But he was so busy spraing all the bushes around. Tabitha has come into heat inside the catrun, so he was not at all interested or relaxed.
He just wanted back inside. I tried also in the catrun, but he only put himself as close as possible to Tabitha and chatting towards her and staring.
Then I tried inside, but that was with the same result. No time for pics, just longing back to Tabitha. But some I got of him, sadly loosing all his wintercoat now, and inside he must use a diper. But he is gorgeous :))).
Where is Tabitha ....... . There is Tabitha. He loooves her :)))).
And at the moment we are thinking if we`ll make a new (last litter)
/ redo the combination with them or let daughter Mouna or Penelope date.
They gave gorgeous large kittens. We miss Maximus a lot.
Gregorius SOOOO busy, and then straigt back to Tabitha inside.
Beautiful Sirius 6 weeks now

So only on weekends off , and very late. But Gregorius had all his snacks ( He likes it all. Fish, meat , chicken and cat food :))) . He is very lovsick at the moment and just the most wonderful boy as always. We tried this winter to remate Tabitha and Gregorius ( together with Fiorenza) after the loss of Maximus. But she did not take, then we tried his daugther Mouna and Isak. But the dates may have been to short. So mabye we try Gregorius and Tabitha again, Huriel or Nike ( but she is also in love with his son NMQ, soooo ... ). So at the moment he is quite a laidies friend. And he is a beloved boy to all the girls and every ones buddy it seems.

OUR GORGEOUS WONDERFUL DEAR SWEETHEART
HURIEL DE LA FÔRET D`AMALION * BE NFO n 09 23
sends off her sunniest springtime greetings from herself and all of us here.
To her parents Camargue and Viking , and her dear family Francoise and Serge at Chatterie de la Foret d`Amalion in Vallonia,Belgium.
Sadly all her dates with Pelle Panther, Maximus, Gregorius, and Isak have until now not succeeded. Kolya loves her so , but had a date sooo . We adore her, and we know that one day Huriel will have FANTASTIC NFO babies. So until then. We care for her all day, keep her safe and LOOOOVE her. Purrrrs from Huriel. Here she went onto the kitty sett table.Looking smashing as always. And this is the house charmer. She is one of Svein-Eriks favorites. I love them all, Huriel is very special to me, but Svein-Erik also has his..... So a snap shoot greeting to mum and dad in Belgium. On 2 and 4 legs.
Beautiful SIRIUS 4 WEEKS 660 grams, still growing teeth and chewing on our fingers and everything.
Beautiful SOLARIS 4 weeks and 496 grams also still growing teeth and
chewing on all our fingers. AND he is a super social charmer like his dad. Funny, he is born half a day after his brother, but he is always first into everything.We have now finally received by post boxes of a better milk ( KMR) thanks to Johhny at Stargate Pet Shop in Oslo. So the kittens love that rich milk now.Fiorenza has not enough milk for them both, as suspected.I try to bottle feed them both, so that they share the precious milk from mummy Fiorenza a bit more.
But now Solaris keeps a constant weight and is gaining weight much better.
Lovely Solaris he was almost on his way into a purrring sleep
taking pics. He came right out of mummy Fiorenza`s warm belly before this.
I tried for pics of them both, then mummy Fiorenza wanted to come also.
AND she loves the attention and rolling on the kitchen table so much,
that she rolled all over it with her two babies. That became a happy and fun event for them,but the pics are a " mess". So a few but sweet of a very proud mum and her 2 sweethearts. The sweethearts of us all at the moment.
The household is all about them and Fiorenza and her friends + family.
So behind the closed kitchen door are Penelope the constant boduguard,daddy Kolya, Calamity, Kohinoor, Nike,Magni, Ophelia,Huriel, Mouna, Tabitha, Slode, even Belinda and Ne Me Quitte Pas.
If a sound, they line up outside. It is just marvelous to see the social behavior and care. BUT it is impossible to have them all over inside when taking kitty pics.
A very proud Fiorenza, but the only calm pic of her was this.
She went into a playful happy kitty play frolic mood. Rolling around and chatting, messing up all the textiles.
ALL photos unclear :))))) .
Sirius and Solaris

Fiorenza and halfaunt Penelope
Fiorenza and aunty Kohinoor+Magni
beautiful halfaunt Penelope and soon to be a dad ,halfbrother Kolya
daddy Kolya waiting for his super charmers on their way
But the flash is not fun at all.
We are waiting and camping in my studio. Fiorenza has decided that my working studio is her prefered place of giving birth. So at the moment we are all there. With 3 large bags of all her kittens equipment ready for her and the babies. So we have put in easter lights and bright easter red striped tulips, + a bed on the floor for the one of us on guard. Though , the cats have found it to be their new place also. Soooooooooooo ....... spring time babies on their way.
We are now at delivery time :)))) . And she has all the signs. Less sleep for us at the moment.
Fiorenza loves my working place and has decided. This is the place .
Yes we are putting up a camp in the area for beautiful Fiorenza and her babies.
Penelope is ready
OH YES !!! WE HAVE 3 BAGS READY PACKED for Fiorenza and her babies.
And a brand new cradle.
Wonderful Nike is ready as well. Being Fiorenzas buddy.
Fiorenza has this thing that she loves to drink from a glas. That goes back to her great grand mother S* LenLass Isabella at least. She used to drink of a glas at (N) Blomsterdalen.
And we have been told that this is the case even now, at NO* Mimesbrunnen, on the lines after our Belinda. Isabellas daughter.
Oh !!! Here is an other buddy. Ne Me Quitte Pas in his Up and Go diper from Libro
Aunt Kohinoor checking out !!!!
Kohinoor and Ophelia waiting
And here comes Mouna
Grandad Slode is waiting
Fiorenza having her own water glas
And so it goes at the moment :)))) ............... .
WE EXPECT KITTENS AROUND THE 23 th OF MARCH.
And we start to wait for Fiorenza and Kolyas beautiful kittens on the 21 th of March.
Fiorenza has a small tummy, and it is more full on her right side. So we think mabye 3 kittens. They have started to become very active now, and kick a lot in her tummy.
Finally some new pics of our dear beautiful Byzants in the lovely weather. 8 years now, born in 2007 as our second litter, and outside for a stroll with Debbie and Haifa.
Also Fiorenza has been outside in the reconstructed catrun part.
Enjoing the sun and some fun while waiting for the babies.
Fiorenza is pregnant but also playful and busy. She is not large so this is a small litter we think.
Finally the old " dogrun " catrun has been repared, and is now in full use. With their favorite sun chairs waithing for warmer days or stary nights. Shelfs and climbing pillars will be made later. And then the other catrun will be rebuilt and then later added 2 new ones. AND THEN IT IS ALL WELL :) .
So then I can also start to finnish the newest catrun down stairs. Made this summer. I was just going to put on the chicken wire on the roof in November and finnish it with shelfs and inside the small cathouses. But then we lost Maximus with all the search for him for weeks, and then came the snow and of course the horrible hurricanes that destroyed parts of the up stairs area. And that has been worked on until now. The hurricanes did no damaged to this catrun. So now it can bee finnished also. with a catflap into the down stairs fish halls and their places there. So looks like springtime is on it`s way.
Parts of the catrun have now been reconstructed, and will be attached to the old dogrun when it has a new roof and shelfs etc. the coming week. And then I can build new ones that can be attached to both the reconstructed part and the dogrun.Sadly the 2 new catruns we had ordered turened out to be like the old dog run, that we do not want more of. So we must order 2 new ones of a different type, more like the ones that are to the left inn the picture. But slowly the cats get their outdoor place up stairs back. It has been a huge and horrible job in terrible weather all winter. There is much left.But up it goes :)))) .
Our proud dear beautiful Tabitha D`Haakona CH* in the new reconstructed catrun part with her 2 lovely daughers Penelope and Mouna.
Penelope. The tiger princess
Tabitha and Penelope
Mouna and Penelope
Mouna the " teddy bear"
Beautiful Tabitha enjoing sun beams and some climbing
Lovely lovely girls Tabitha and Mouna
Beautiful Tabitha, but sadly the flash went off in on one of the pics.
Beautiful gorgeous tiger girl (N) Myrtekransen`s Penelope NFO n 09 23. 1 year
and 10 months .Here outside with me in a leash for some nice pics. She is Tabitha and Hieronymus tigerbaby.Hieronymus favorite mabye,.She used to always sleep in his tummy area like a baby. And after that she is the "baby" of grandmother of Calamity. Tabitha and Penelope both wish to rule ( much more than halfsister Mouna, she is laid back). So a real tiger princess. Penelope is an active girl, so to be in a leash for the first time was NO FUN. But then she actually walked rather nicely in it. She looks very grumpy, but that is in fact her cool looks. Very tigerish like her dad and then some from her beautiful mum. And with a great fur quality. Anway just some new pics of this lovely beauty. This is the sister of (N) Myrtekransen`s Pelle Panther.
Grandad Haifa looking after his tiger princess grandaughter.
Our beautiful super charmer (N) Myrtekransen`s Kolya NFO n 03 23
He will soon be a dad to his first kittens together with (N) Myrtekransen`s Fiorenza NFO n 09 22. The kittens will be expected and waited for from the 21 of March.
Kolya is losing his winter coat now, specially around the diper area. But some is left for pics in the nice weather with the eagle hunting above us. It was gliding over being hunted by the seagulls. But Kolya was within my arms reach. So we managed in a hurry. Finally a clear day with sun :)))).
Kolya`s wonderful halfbrother and buddy Ne Me Quitte Pas loves to be outside with me when I work on the
catrun. He goes around my legs and hed bang my hands. Here I also took his grandad Haifa with him for a stroll in , around and about in the heather and juniper. So I had them both rolling around , investigating and playing in my break. They are so very very sweet.
Ne Me Quitte Pas checking out grandad Haifa and playing a cool bluesilver tiger :))) .
While taking pics and fixing the catrun, one of the eagles glided over all the time from all angles, but the seagulls pick it in the tail feathers. sadly my camera did not get clear pics but we could see them being busy all over. As usual.
Our dear beautiful silver _PRINCESS x PRINCESS___ CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Byzants
8 years. On her birthday the weather was not so nice I think, and the last time we
were going out for pics, then came a helicopter above us, so Byzants wanted back inside.
But today was lovely and she has been enjoying the sunbeams while Haifa was guarding and
charming her. Very sweet and a gorgeous special princess she is.
Beautiful NO* AMALIE AMADEUS NFO w 6 years . Our gorgeous dear dear special white girl ( masking a tortie like her mum or a red with white like her sister. She is such a wonderful girl, very alike grandad Ariel in her temper also. But she also has a wonderful mum and dad, so she may take after them all. She has celebrated many times now, and had a new large handful of shrimps againon Friday. Just as crazy about shrimps as Ariel was. HIPP HIPP HURRRRRRAY Sweetheart.
Sadly she has not gone into heat at all. She is very beautiful. To be in a leash was no fun at all.
She was in a hunting mood, and the seagulls and crows took all her attention, leaving me with almost only 1 possition towards the right. Her ears has once been snapped at by eagles we think.Some years ago I just managed to bring her home from the field across the house on a hunt, with the eagle right aboove her head. Her earmarks looks like a grip actually. But she survived to all luck. This was before we understood the severity, the amount and type of eagles here.
We expect kittens around about the 23 of March between :
(N) Myrtekransen`s Fiorenza NFO n 09 22 and (N) Myrtekransens`s Kolya NFO n 03 23
( Fiorenza has been kept inside the catrun and house since we lost her daughter Jolanda outside in 2013. So no recent outdoor pics of her. But new soon since her collar has started to come back after her date with Kolya :))) ).
Our dear lovely Fiorenza almost 5 years having a great time with a huge new catnip root that
she LOOOOOVES and eats of. I took some pics last evening in the working room she loves to be in at the moment. 1 with a flash but the rest without. The collar is on its way back, but also she loves being only inside now. So new pics when she wants to enjoy the catrun, now that sunnier days are a head.
Here she can smell a large catnip root coming up.
Jummi jummi, a great snack for Fiorenza.
Earlier outdoor pics are on her side.
Kolya the charming chatty beautiful dad.
Fiorenza our last fertile offspring after our dear CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Aurora. And this is CH S* Zygot`s Slodes daughter. She has a small tummy now so this looks like mabye 3 beautiful spring time kittens on their way. Kolya is the son of our dear CH S* Zygot`S Debbie-Doss and our dear CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Hieronymus ( son of our CH (F) S* Wonderwood`s Calamity Jane and DK Elkington`s Haifa Wonder). Since his sister lost her 2 kittens during birth in the storm, we let her rest a bit, and dated her brother Kolya with the last offspring from our A-Litter lines between Belinda and Sisik in 2007.
* * * * * *
We are uncertain of this, but we may expect a kitten /s between CH (F) S* Wonderwood`s Calamity Jane NFO n 09 23 and CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Gregorius NFO ns. If so around the 6 th of April.They may have been succeeding 1 time on a very short evening date. It seemed like always ( on the side, on her back etc.). But she hissed at him once. We have tried before with Maximus and Gregorius, but it has not succeeded. And she is getting busy again. Soooo....
Calamity has fooled us many times over a couple of years though, so that is not clear yet :))). She has been difficult to date laying over on her side and even on her back, or been running around all over. And then she plays pregnant for a couple of months. This might be her last litter. She will be 8 years now, so time for her to have a relaxed neuter life off the pill as well. It has taken some time in between litters because of her advanced dating style :)))). Other than that we would have liked 1 more litter but we also think about her and the use of the pill in between kittens. So we felt this was kind of her last chance this year. And we hope for her kitten/ s. If not we may think about Penelope, her granddaughter. Or Huriel.
Sadly it seems like Huriel is not pregnant. So we may let (N) Myrtekransen`s Mouna NFO n 23 and (N) Myrtekransen`s Isak NFO ns 09 24 date. ( Or we may change to Penelope or Ohelia for Isak, if Isak and Mouna do not succced). But Mouna first since she is the only fertile from the M-litter.
And then we find future new males later for Huriel, Penelope, Kohinoor, Ophelia . Gregorius and Isak will be neutered now so that they can live happily as relaxed neuterd boys. Nike may later date Ne Me Quitte Pas. And Amalie has several options but she has not had a heat for much over a year since she was taken off the pill sadly. And only one heat earlier.So now we just have to wait and see. We can not have many litters ,so further plans will be for later.The cats have very short dating periods now. That may not be successful, but we have to wait in case changes will be done. But hopefully we will have a couple of " small " litters. And then we`ll see for next year.
HIPP HIPP HURRAY TO OUR WONDERFUL B-LITTER THAT CELEBRATED THEIR 8 th BIRTHDAY ON THE 26 th of FEBRUARY. We WISH ALL THE DEAR BEAUTIES CH (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S BATSHEBA, IC (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S BRANKA, CH (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S BOLSHOI, CH (?)

AND HUGE CONGRATS FROM MUMMY DIANA and DADDY MAGNI.
LOTS OF PURRRS TO THEM ALL. Byzants will son have her new pics , if she will go out on a sunny day :)))).
* * * * * * *
HAPPY BIRTDAY DEAR BEAUTIFUL HURIEL DE LA FÔRET D`AMALION * BE.
She is 3 years now and celebrated her birthday on the 1 of March with a lot of favorite snacks.Tuna, shrimps and catsnack. She is just adorable and so very beautiful.We have celebrated Byzants, Slode and Amalie also.
So she had in fact many days with tasty catsnack. She can not go out though,but in a leash is ok when we finally had some sunbeams. But since I feed the seagulls they came at once above us and wanted their food. That was a bit too interesting for Huriel. She`d rahter go by herself. She has not been in a leash since I brought her from Belgium to Bergen. But being off the pill and so , that is not possible at this moment. Lovely she is, our beautiful dear dear sweetheart. Sadly it seems that she did not take this time. So we`ll see if Calamity carries for sure. Otherwise Huriel will date Gregorius again when in heat. Or wait for an offspring mabye.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALSO CH S* * ZYGOT`S SLODE.
He became 6 years together with (N) BOOTE`S AMALIE AMADEUS NFO w on the 28
th of February. Here is only pics of our happyminded gorgeous dear Slode since he can be outside with me in the clear weather. No rain, storm or snow. But clear with clouds and some sunbeams.He is surch a dear wonderful super
charmer and losing his winterfur a bit now. So sweet, and looking forward to be a granddad again very soon :)))
HAPPY BIRTH DAY ALSO TO OUR 2 OTHER BEAUTIES.
CH (N) MYRTEKRANSEN`S BYZANTS 8 YEARS on the 26 th of February
and (N) BOOTE`S AMALIE AMADEUS 6 YEARS on the 28 th of February.
Our dear lovely beaties all celebrated over several days. With their different favorite food and snack. Fish, meat of different sorts, shrimps and cat milk.
So we think they all liked that. Mabye I `ll get pics of Byzants outside in nice weather, Nad Amalie also in a leash in nice weather. I`m working on the catrun still. So mabye there later on. But any way .
HIPP HIPP HIPP HURRRRRRRAY TO BYZANTS 8 YEARS, SLODE 6 YEARS, AMALIE 6 YEARS and HURIEL 3 YEARS.
ALL OF THEM GORGEOUS DEAR LOVELY SWEETHEARTS.
Our very very handsome silverboy (N) Myrtekransen`s Isak NFO ns 09 24 will be 4 years on the 29 /3.
Here outside with me for a short walk in the nice weather. Cold but sunny and no wind.
He is such a wonderful, and lovesick sweetheart. Always by your feet, standing on his 2 hind legs and chats and cuddle with his head. A very sweet ,dear and beautiful funny boy.
We may again plan also for him now. He only has one beautiful litter. So we hope for more kittens after him shortly as well. Ophelia, Mouna, Penelope ( Huriel, depending on her plans), Amalie , Tabitha or Kohinoor. But we`ll see. At the moment many of our plans have changed the last couple of years. Where he has been planned for offspring combinations with Maximus. So ...
Isak has a straight nice profile that does not show with all his for in the forehead. So I pulled it back a bit :)))) .
Sadly Tabitha went into heat again. That means that we do not expecxt her kittens in February. She must have been false pregnant. They dated only for a short period to avoid a large litter.
But we might expect kittens around The 23 of March between
(N) Myrtekransens Fiorenza NFO n 09 22
(N) Myrtekransen`s Kolya NFO n 09 23
Fiorenza having her cat nip root and Kolya out for a short walk with me
Fiorenza has been off the pill and inside since we lost Jolanda. So no outdoor pics of her now.
Our super charmer lovely (N) Myrtekransen`s Kolya outside with me for a short photo session. But the weather is so unpredictable, and it started to rain again. So I took him in side. But some of this sweetheart. Kolya may be a father to (N) Myrtekransens` Fiorenzas second litter . Around the 23 of March ( 65 days). So he is very proud.
And of course there was a second storm . This is an old house for drying up nets, futher out on a famous fishing spot on the islands.
This came and took the rest of the old catrun roof smashing it into bits towards the rocky wall. But it is all being cleared now, and a new one on it`s way + using the oldest catrun with a new roof of chicken wire all over for the wind to pas trough. And then the 2 new catruns attached likewise ( sadly the 2 dogruns we had ordered were the wrong type ( like our old dogrun) , so new ones must be bought. But hey will come. No roof this time only chicken wire and small houses inside that will let the wind pas if we ever see this kind of weather again..
Sadly we have said good bye to our dear dear fantastic silver tiger (N) Myrtekransen`s Maximus. Our silver star has suddenly been taken away from us. Thank you so much to those that finally found him for us.
Maximus was buried with his newborn half sibling sisters Rosa and Rosita.
He had been missing since he did not come when called for on the evening-night of the 3-4 of November 2014. So he has been searched for days, evenings and nights since then. We knew when he did not arrive at once as usual when called for, that something was very wrong. He only took short strolls around the house when dark and quiet, and no eagles. And this was a quitet stary evening.
After all our search he was finally found this Friday 16 th of January by two small puddles out for a walk with the owner. He was still wearing his dipers, so the fish farmer here knew at once that it was our missing Maximus. He had been sudden and fataly hit by a car. And was found near by the side of the road where we had searched many times. But then he must have been hidden by thin layers of snow.We are so glad to have been told were to find him after all this time, and Svein-Erik brought him home, where he was prepared and put to his final rest behind his favorite bench surrounded by lights, lots of sparkles, a small mini Christmas tree and primulas.This is such a great loss. Maximus did not become a father. He dated several times, and was planned for in many years to come. But the girls did not yet conceive and were difficult daters. Maximus lived a wonderful life, just like he wanted it. And such a dear beloved boy .But all to short, and we are left with a deep sorrow and miss him so very very much. Our huge powerful kitty boy, still a big baby, that we almost did not dare to let outside the catrun for more than a short while.
TWINKLE TWINKLE BRIGHT GREAT STAR. Some times twinkle a bit towards us where we are. Missing you forever our deartest dearest most beautiful tigerboy...........
Long, large (N) Myrtekransen`s Pelle Panther NFO n 23 ( has just ca 2 white hairs on his tail tip geno 09 23). He is now towards 8 kilos and a muscular slim male.
Here with his beloved family. And we all hope so very much that he can be a father AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Sadly it did not work with Huriel the first time. And Fiorenza goes much to sudden into heat, and during our hurricane period of course. But HE IS SIMPLY THE MOST GORGEOUS FANTASTIC LARGE TIGER BOY. Thank you so much Kristin and family for loving him so much, and for the lovely pics of him with his 2 legged princess.
We may expect kittens after our 2 gorgeous sweethearts
(N) Myrtekransen`s Fiorenza NFO n 09 22 and (N) Myrtekransen`s Kolya NFO n o9 23.
After having been waiting a couple of years. Due to other matings planned. Fiorenza has gone into heat. And they may date now. Estimated arrival of the kittens will in that case be around 22 -23 -24 of March.
Fiorenza will be 5 years and no one of her offspring in breeding. Many were sold as pets and we lost our Jolanda. And Kolya has no offspring yet. So good luck.
Part of this combination will be like our wonderful J-Litter. And then with CH S* Zygots Debbie-Doss added to the pedigree as a grandmother.
New pics of Fiorenza will come. But Kolya has a tendensy to eat off her collar. He did last time she had a heat a short while ago and he was wearing dipers. So she is halfway back into collar condition :))) . Fiorenza and Huriel are the love of his life. So he`s happy :)))).

We have had great expectations and looked so forward to the litter of Kohinoor and Gregorius. Then came the hurricane, with no warmth, no light, things being trashed agains the walls outside and the wind " banging" hard towards the walls and windows of the house. Finally Kohinoor went into labour on her 66 day from her second dating day. It all took a while. And sadly the gestational sac bursted and the first kitten went back inside. So after a while we managed to get her out , but sadly she died during the morning. Her sister had had her gestational sac bursted inside the womb during this and we did not manage to get her into life when she was born entangeled with her first sister on her way out. It is all very sad and a tradegy to us and those that had waited and longed so very much for a kitten in this litter. The first born kitten , little beautiful Rosa, died in her loving mothers paws. Having been loved so very much for the short while she were among us. It has been heart breaking to see how loving and caring Kohinoor has been. Calling out for us all to come to her cradle see the beautiful daughter, being full of milk and washing her so proudly. We are all so very very sad. The kittens were 2 fantastically promissing and beautiful silver girls with white breasts and white paws. NFO ns 09 22/23 ( pattern like Kohinoor or mabye classic tabby). So a great loss. Looking a bit like their grandad Hieronymus and their uncle Goya when they were born. Luckily Kohinoor is in super fine shape, and her recovery is now fully restored. Though she misses her daughters.
We will let our dear gorgeous Kohinoor relax a bit. She can not go back on the pill. But she has succsessfully given birth, though the kittens did not survive. So we`ll make plans for her again later.
* * * * * *
We have been badly "hit" by the hurricane "Nina". It has trashed
the new large part of the catrun (60 kvm. +), and made it into bits and pieces. And pushed and smashed the walls. Moving the catrun like a bulldozer meters and into the montain side.
Luckily the old part upstairs in the " Gattostrada" is untouched. So we can close that one ASP, towards the damaged part. The new large one down stairs, made this summer stands straight and is fine. But we need to close of the newer large new part up strairs so that the cats can go outside into the catrun again. Also the newcomer / offspring of the golden eagle couple has understood that the catrun is now open. And hunts over all day from all angles. Even coming directly towards me. So this is at the moment a disaster area.
We lost all electricity for several days, leving us with 8-9 degrees inside the house, no light, no comunication, telephone or internett.
At the moment we just have to look at the damages, and plan to build a new part of the catrun again where it all now looks like a disasterous scene.
* * * * * * * * *
Here are a lot of pictures of the large "newcomer", the third eagle.
There is probably a forth. Having been 2 siblings. Most likely the third one we have seen flying around our house. It seems to be 1 of the 2 offsprings that we have seen being testflying this summer with their parents near by. This one or the sibling was seen with parents earlier in November last year. Not so long time ago we could see the two darker parents hunting above us, and with a third behind them. As one can see this is a much younger golden eagle, having large white spots under and over it`s wings. So a youngster that we have not seen before until this late autumn. It has learnt to hunt like it`s parents though. And comes directly at me at full speed looking down on me even with the seagulls snapping at it`s tail feathers. I had to wave and shout ÆÆÆÆÆHHHHH! before it broke of obove my head. Standing right outside our house. Those pics are only unclear pics of sky and the pinetrees + my arm. It comes in sudden glides from all angles, before it lands, waits and take a new detour.Last week they saw Svein-Erik coming back from the shop, and then took off from the island in front of us,in a glide towards him at the door.
It hunts back and forth around our house, above the broken catrun, waiting on the clifs or tops to jump of and glide towards us. It passes our kitchen window, bathroom window to look in at us. We feed the seagulls to help us, but the eagles are only chased away for a short while. And if they are 3, all the birds fly away. They know all to well, that they might some day get lucky once more.If a sudden mistake happens.When he/she hunts as a threesome together with the parents one can clearly understand the effect of that hunt. When one is more than enough to succseed. It has also started to hunt at the break of sunrise now, knowing our routines if we work late.
Since I do not have a zoom, this shows that it is actually right above, in front
and checking out in glides, circles and dives around and towards me. Passing again and again in front of the house.

Here is Kohinoor surrounded by her family and friends. Kittens daddy Gregorius, grandad Haifa, grandmother Calamity,Tabitha,Magni,Mouna,Kolya, Huriel, Penelope, Ophelia, Slode etc. And all is at it`s place. And of course grandmother Calamity Jane is ready in the newborn baby kitty basket cradle.When the kittens are about 3 weeks, a new larger childbed will replace it with more space, food and a kitty toilet.
Grandmother CH (F) / S *Wonderwood`s Calamity Jane
has moved in and is fully prepared :)))). As always.
We are waiting for (N) Myrtekransen`s Kohinoor`s first babies
with CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Gregorius. Here Kohinoor sends off her greetings for a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015. But was all the time interupted by a very playful Huriel on the table or under it.Kohinoor has a larger belly now, not to large, so we`ll see.
GOOD LUCK dear beautiful Kohinoor.
And here is her friend the busy princess Huriel.
Sending off greetings as well.
But she was super busy all over. Up, down, around and playing all over. She is wonderful. And hopefully she will also have babies the coming years. But she did not take after here dates in 2014.
She is having great fuhn though :)))))) .
I tried to calm her down with grooming, but that lasted 1/2 second
and off she went all around again, chatting.
Yes something looks more fun on the floor. Fiorenza lurking.
Playing with christmas Indian gifts from my sister and parents , and the comb. Making her hairdo a bit fuzzy rolling around.
Happy New Year from beautiful Huriel
(N) MYRTEKRANSEN WISHES YOU ALL
A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015.
A New Year Greeting from a hike by foot to the top of 1 of the 7 Bergen mountains. Ca. 390 meters above sea level.Rather fresh and windy,with snow on it`s way. And Hurtigruta coming in from the northern parts of Norway

* * * * * * .
(N) Myrtekransen`s Maximilian NFO ns 2 1/2 years and a slim 7.5 kg boy. Neutered.Here he is visiting AnneMa`s daughter Maren in Oslo. He loves that since she lives with her student buddies, and he gets a lot of even more attention.He`s been visiting since he was a kitten and loves to be pampered.
Thank you again dear AnneMa and Maren for super sweets photos of your dear lovely boy Max. This time without his son Ask. Max is a proud father to 11 wonderful NFO offsprings before he was neutered. So he lives with Ask.
We also have to congratulate our beautiful and lovely
(N) Myrtekransen`s Ophelia NFO n 09
She celebrated her second birthday at 2 years on The 12 of November.
WE ALSO CONGRATULATE OLYMPIA, ORPHEUS and OPUS.
HUGE CONGRATS TO ALL OUR DEAR WONDERFUL BEAUTIES IN THE O-LITTER. Sadly I was a bit busy, and the computer at work. So greetings are a bit delayed with the K and O litters.
This was our host litter at MALENE`S on Askøy, Bergen.
We wish them all ALL THE BEST.
Ophelia herself had a great day with her buddies.Sadly I did not dare to take outdoor pics of her because of the eagles. She is such a beauty, and a
wonderful dear sweetheart to us all. HIPP HIPP HURRAY!!!!!. Ophelia likes almost everything, but she had her favorite grilled chicken in addition to other snack. She likes that much more. Not so much shrimps or fish. But best of all is to play with her friends and to be the " baby" of Calamity.
Love her so much.
Ophelia is extremely photogenic , but has no interest in being it at all.
Sad to say, I only managed these few. Then she just wanted to play " off " the table. And of cours this was a rugged carpet bought just for her paws to strech on. Ophelia loves to put her paws back and forth onto these , so I was happy with just a few before she " took" off with her carpet down to the floor with her best buddies.Such a sweethearted kind graceful panther. Just like coming from the fairtales. She always jumps on my / our bodies at night. Washing our hands and arms before curling up with Calamity, Nike and Penelope. Can You imagine how sweet that is :))). Beautiful beautiful Ophelia !!!!!
Fantastic panther girl Ophelia on her new cat carpet.And of cours she share the 3 cat beds that were bought for the O and K litters.But the funny part is that the two other beds had to be ordered from Ophelias birthplace, Askøy. Mean time they share the one fury cat bed, and Ophelia has been given a cat rugg to paw all ower until more fury cat beds comes over from her home town Askøy:))))).
SUPER COOL PANTHER OPHELIA
Ophelia`s new cat rugg is so popular, that we have to get at least 2 more. :))))
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Maximilian NFO ns 23
and here with his beautiful son NO* Mimesbrunnen`s ASK NFO n.
Maximilian is a great dad. Still a slim neuter and 7.5 kilos. He is very busy
trying to get the food that Ask gets. That is not neuter food :))). Ask is growing into to a gorgeous young male. Now 5.5 kilos at 11 months.
Thank you dear AnneMa for a lovely greeting from our beautiful dear boy Maximilian and his gorgeous grandson Ask. Sooooooooooooo ....sweet .

NFO n 03 23 celebrated their third birthday on The 20 th of November.
They had all the snack they like the best and lots of cuddeling of cours.
On their birthday I could not take them outside, but I`ll taken these inside instead. Now it is dark early in the day, and the eagle is back several times a day from dawn until sunset. Hunting above our house and it`s surroundings.
The sheep has been taken in from their fields, so now it is very close and hunting aggressively in this area. It has no fear of me or us at all.
So inside pics for Kolya, and Kohinoor.
Here they have had their new kitty bed. Warm and fury, and a small " stinky" pillow, filled up with catmint. Kolya was much to busy with the new
catnip toy, and Kohinoor was busy with Amalie in the background, wishing for both the new catbed and the new green catnip pillow.
But they both say hello to their brother in Bergen. HELLO and HAPPY BIRTHDAY beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Kasper NFO n 22.
HIPP HIPP HURRAY KASPER , KOLYA and sister KOHINOOR.
Beautiful Kohinoor Beautiful Kolya
Kolya was very busy and managed to get fireweed seeds + branches all over his head and into one eye, so it came on to the photos, but he is a lovely super charmer.
Kolya busy , so almost all pics are unclear. And I managed to take one
of myself with the dried fireweed branch.
Kolya loves his new fury bed.
Here comes silver princess Kohinoor, much much to busy having control of
Amalie, that wanted to jump into the bed and take over the catnip toy :))).
So just a few of Kohinoor, she just jumped out of the bed to check Amalie.
She is such a wonderful female. And as charming as her brother of cours.
Needless to say. Our huge problem is back. All day !!!!!

Sadly Kohinoor went into heat on the evening 6/11.
So she had a false pregnancy. Luckily her infection has not returned at least.
* * * *
These photos were taken on a short stroll when she seemed pregnant
Poor Kohinoor, of course the rain came suddenly.
So just a quick stroll and some new photos of her in her lovely "on its way" wintercoat. And then back inside.
And we had a short visit of one of Svein-Eriks super cool " project" boats.
It is of course called New Watercat Artic Pilot, and came in all new on it`s first trip directly from Finland before reaching it`s final destination on Svalbard. Guarding the shores in the rough seas there, further up north.
Great looking boat and a cool water _cat_ boat :))) . Good luck sailing the shores of Svalbard.
My thoughts are WHAT a boat to take open ocean free dives from :)))) .
Gorgeous large (N) Myrtekransen`s Ludevico NFO n 09 23 ( white tail tip) almost 3 years. Sadly neutered. He is the beautifiul son of our beauties Tabitha d`Haakona *CH and CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Hieronymus.
But he is having a great time as a neuter with his new buddy Milo the Pyrenee dog in Førde. Thank you dear Hilde and family for loving him so much. He looks great.
And here is Ludevico`s active sister Penelope. 1 1/2 years.
From our second and same combination as Ludevico and our L-Litter.
Penelope is very active. So many pics were just bodyparts or fur. She was
playing with Ne Me Quitte Pas. And they were teased by the magpies.
A busy tiger girl
Sister and brother. Wonderful offsprings after Hieronymus and
Tabitha. Penelope has more of Tabithas lighter color shade. But
they are both so beautiful.
Beautiful Slode 5 years 8 months. Enjoying being outside to play and
go for a stroll with Penelope, Ne Me Quitte Pas and Haifa. I only managed photos of Slode and Penelope. The others were busy all over and into bushes.
An autumn storm along the coast. With huge waves, a stired up ocean and seafoam up in the air.Here we are on our way back from the city center after having been at the fish market in Bergen. Looking at lots of plentiful fantastic fish and shellfish.This time they even had a porbeagle that unfortunately had just been caught in this area. As a bycatch. They are not allowed being fished, so only sold if they are caught as bycatch.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR GORGEOUS N-LITTER 2 YEARS TODAY.
HIPP HIPP HURRAY !!!!!! To beautiful NOIR, beautiful NIKOLAY, beautiful NATALIA and our own dear beautiful NIKE. Mummy Calamity Jane and daddy Isak wish them all the best for their birthday.
Our own special princess princess PRINCESS Nike, will have her shrimps, and then some. But she LOOOOVES shrimps. She is such a lovely silver princess, and she still might get a sip from Calamity along with buddy Ophelia. So best wishes to all the beauties. We love them so much.
Beautiful silver princess Nike 2 years today and so LOOOOVELY. She has had shrimps and will have some more. But today it is grey and rainy, and with mosquito attacks all the time. We had to run from them, and then came the rain. So pics on another sunny day. But she is such a beauty and later planned for Ne Me Quitte Pas in the future. Love her soooooo very much ..... Isak and Calamity are so proud.
Rain and mosquitos, we better hide in a hurry.
Early this morning an other sail ship passed the bay on it`s way to Bergen. A lovely shilouette. It is always nice with sail ships
This is the fantastic daughter IT* Orme sulla Neve Venere NFO n 09 after our dear offspring (N) Myrtekransens Hektor. Thank you so much Fabiana and Andrea at cattery IT* Orme sulla Neve Italy,for a wonderful summer greeting from "our" gorgeous " grandchild ",your beauty Venere living in beautiful Piemonte in Italy.
Calamity and Haifa are so proud.
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Hektor NFO n 09 22 now neutered.
He is enjoying his neutered life in beautiful Italy as a very dear familycat. He has given wonderful offspring with his beautiful girl friends PennyLane and Regina.We were on our way to book one of them, but had to wait sadly. So now Hektor is having a great and relaxed time as a neutered being pampered all day. He has the look of Calamity, while Hieronymus looked more like Goya mabye , and Helene also like Haifa a lot. So he is just wonderful. Thank you so much Fabiana and Andrea for a super summer greeting from our lovely dear boy Hektor. Mum and dad, Calamity and Haifa + half sister Nike and half brother Gregorius send off lots of purrrrs to Hektor and his beautiful daughter Venere.
The Club Med. Five -masted sail ship passing our bay and window. One of the largest sailing cruise ships in the world. Too large for " our Emerald Bay " tough.
The rosehips. Autumn fruits of roses. Svein- Erik brought them because he knows I love them. And a new under wather camera test. My freediving watch is a bit out of order at the moment. Showing only time spent. I`am not " allowed " to freedive alone too deep. In the Red Sea I was below a scuba diver group. Waving at them from about - 20-25 m. Upwards. With the crocodile fish at the bottom level that I visited ( we have old pics of that. Freediving for 2 weeks). Long time ago. But my new camera can not pas - 12 m. of depth. Since it also is a camera for pics above the surface.Now I was bellow 10 + m. in a place with its dephts taken from earlier freedives. When the watch was working. The camera only goes down to 12 meters. I need a reapair of it.And to keep to places known to be no more than 10 m under surface. But deeper down I met a large cod that was interested in me. Great fun.I thought I had been taking pics of it. Turns out there are only pics of the shadow and a deeper level. I also hoped to find the funny crabs I saw earlier this summer. Sitting on their favorite places in between the rocks. And even seahorses.... But well some pics of more fish, and it was busy today with strong currents arriving. Great though. This time I had my frog fins on. But I need to find more of my lead for the belt, since my up drift is too strong, so that I have to work hard to get down. But that is an important balance though. More pics from freediving mifgt come,until the predicted bad weather arrives by the end of the week :)))) . And of cours Ne Me Quitte Pas and buddy Kolya were very interested in the plastic diver below air torpedo.
Camera test. It is much colder now. So shoes and a hood were needed. It was low tide at the moment. With a current coming in and a lot of smaller micro organisms beside small fish, what looked like schools of sprat swiming around me and a small cod etc. So the camera works.It has several functions for under wather photos. Some gave too dark pics below 4 meters on a micro function. But the action function took more light into the camera, and that gave pics of beautiful small and busy fish. Refreshing !!!.
The weather forecast predicted nice wearther yesterday.So I took a couple of hours rowing on a boat trip out into the open ocean. The Nort Sea . And here are some pics also of my other " friends ". The wild sheep. Having fixed the squeaky sound of the row lock, they came to greet me. Very sweet with lots of BHÆÆÆÆÆÆ sounds. They had a nice time jumping all over the rocks in the nice sun. Eating heather it seems. They are so beautiful. Hopefully the eagle/s have not taken to many of their lovely lambs. One of the golden eagles flew right over me yesterday, while sitting by Svein-Eriks office cabin for a coffe before starting to row. It lowerded towards me, gliding very close above my head. Looking down while tilting its head. Sadly my camera was on load.It was clearly hunting. Looking straight into my eyes. But a seagull came after it`s long tail fethers, so it took off. We had put the cats inside.It was easy to see that it was the golden eagle.And it had probably been hunting the area of the wild sheep behind us first as usual. The lambs are larger now, and many has been taken closer to home. So now it turns up here again. And seems to know me well. We have seen documentaries about the speices from Norway, Austria, France, Scotland ( Norwegian golden eagles brought over), Germany the Himalayas and Mongolia. So the behavior is the same it seems. In this area it hunts for sheep, hare, mabye young deers ( that has been seen other palces?) , the otters and birds .So I went out in our rowing boat for a trip. Hoping to get photos also of the eagle that uses this straits as a fly way. But I only met the wild sheeps, seagulls and the herons that seems to have come back a bit this summer. They inhabit the bay again, so we see ( and hear) them all day. The golden eagle took many, but now some are back.The herons follow me on trips as well as the seagulls. That is so nice. AND I have discovered that the camera Svein-Erik gave me actually can take underphoto pics down to 12 meters below surface. So I tested it a bit. Some of the wather pics are just my hand put right below surface in shallow wathers. AND it worked. So now I`m going to take a dive for more underwather photos since the water is nice and clear :))).
Here are some sweet " friends" of mine. The fantastic wild sheep enjoying the sun.
Kohinoor so wonderful. She will be 4 years in November. So she is off the pill, and can not go out for pics.
But she is so sweet.
Cool cool COOOOL tiger kitty princess Penelope. She is just gorgeous also.
And of cours our fantastic Huriel. Penelope`s friend.
Our white princess Amalie loves herbs mint and rosemary it seems :))). She is so beautiful and special.
Waiting for heat.
Beautiful Huriel always chats and wants to cuddle a lot.
Amalie has had close contact with the eagle. At first we thought Joy had made her first cut in the ear. But now after we found out about the eagle, and the way her wounds are made and placed, that is more similar to an eagle. Also I chaught Amalie running after me in the forest above the cliffs , and the eagle gliding over her. So I rushed to her and carried her home with me. But that was an horrific experience. That was at the same time as with Juventus. At that time we did not know what kind of an eagkle it was. We were told that the white tip eagle was the most common. So she has been very lucky.
The ( sea) gate way to the North Sea and the secret " Emerald Bay" :)))).
This time I took the rowing boat in the opposite direction. And rowed at a nice speed 20 -30 minutes or so, from our place. That is out towards and into the North Sea. On my way I found a strange place, it looked like steps of stone coming out of the sea with small fish swiming around it. Leading to a " closed" "entrance door" into the rocks. Just like " Narnia" or " Harry Potter", or the Norwegain "trolls". Or like I`ve seen other places. Closed doorways into castles.Very funny how nature by geologi has made shapes to fill our fantasy. Just great. But beside fish and ocean,this is wild sheep ( viking sheep)country. I met a smal flock eating by the shore, but our boat squeaks a bit at the moment in the row-lock area . So when I came in too close to take pics they turned their way. Usually they come to greet and look. They are such fantastic marvelous animals, so very beautiful,and this is their place. So then I`ll wait for next time and took off out towards the North Sea. One can always hope to se a whale :)))) . But the the weather changed a bit, thunder sounds coming from the Bergen area. So I went back in shore, and found the beautiful " Emerald bay". Afantastic shell sand bay with crystal clear wathers, where we have been many times to dive and swim. This beautiful bay is enclosed by stones and rocks. That is why our small rowing boat gets in here. And it is sooooooo.... beautiful. That will be my next freedive. Planned for a nice sunny day. But for today, it is back home to the cats, and Svein-Erik has brought fresh mussels for spagetthi cozze al bianco. Purrrrrrrfect :). Tomorrow the weather cast has predicted a lovely sunny day in the west. THAT... means rowing out into the open ocean of the North Sea. Freediving there and in the " Emerald Bay".
The cats will have sea food :))).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR BEAUTIFUL SWEETHEART CH (N) STJERNEN`S DIANA NFO n 09 24. HIPP HIPP HURRAY gorgeous DIANA is 9 years today. We love her so very very much. She has had some of her snack for breakfast, but will also have shrimps and fish now after my update. And she`ll have a large fresh catnip root to eat and sniff on. She LOOOOOVES that.
I took Diana for a walk with her daughter today in the lovely autumn sun.
Diana does not like to go out so much any more. She prefer to feel safe at home in her favorite places. But she has had great fun, and guards her daughter Byzants like a baby. So she was more busy with that than pics. As one can see, her " baby princess princess daughter came running after mum " calling " like a kitty baby and chatting all the time. Very funny and sweet
So a lot of pics of Byzants, and some of beautiful Diana being very busy as a " mum" . But she is just wonderful and super kind. A dear dear princess :))).
Sadly we were " attacked" by swarms of mosquitos in the face and areound our eyes, so we had to run back. But some nice pics of them though.
Some more pics of Diana with her friends.
On the second trip even buddy Debbie-Doss came along to celebrate.
A chatty Debbie-Doss enjoying playing a bit with Diana, Byzants and me.
hmmmm some fish for me later ?????
Mummy Diana waiting for her " baby princess" Byzants. Chatting all the time.
There you are my " little" " kitty princess". Now we can go for a walk.
Diana on guard.
Mum Diana and her daughter in the fields behind the house.
Beautiful Diana my dear sweet heart. She can also chatt a lot, but mostly inside from her favorite places. She has a summer coat now.
Yeah there is mum Diana. Daddy Magni is inside.
Diana was also very busy eating gras, branches and heater. So a lot of funny pics of her eating her green outdoor snack.
Diana landing on a new stone to guard from.
A super busy mum and also so cuddely and purrrrring. But guarding her
relaxed daughter and me.
Silver princess daughter CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Byzants NFO ns 09 24. 7 1/2 years old. Relaxing, chatting , purring and charming her mother.
And washing her super long and bushy snowshoes.

And yes SHE IS JUST WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful sweetheart CH S* Zygot`s Debbie Doss NFO ns 09 24 6 1/2 years. Enjoying sunbeams on her new bench.
And then comes her super charming lovely son Kolya for attention aswell.
Hmmmm ... Debbie thinks , yes I made him :)))) .
Of cours our wonderful and funny Gregorius arrives to test the bench, headbanging into the camera and turns over on his back. So he enjoys the new cat bench.
Gregorius headbanging his head and cheek, while rolling over cuddeling and chatting.
He takes the whole bench.
Mister cool !!!! looking at his father Haifa on the ground.
And here comes Gregorius son Maximus. He also needs the whole bench to strech out.
Maximus enjoing the bench
Maximus needs the whole bench for himself and streches out relaxed and happy about it.
HIPP HIPP HURRAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR SWEET LOVELY GIC (N) SELTETEIGEN `S MAGNI NFO ns 24. He is 10 years now. And celebrated his birthday with us on the 8 th of August. He had a great Magni day and had a lot of his different snack inside and outside with us. Sadly we did not get fresh herring or mackerel, only canned versions of mackerel and tuna. But he had an other favorite as well. Magni LOVES my crepes/pancakes. With lots of egg yolks, vanilla and butter. So he had that and was outside "helping" on the dock and playing with his buddies. We have had such warm weather lately, that all his fur started to come off in huge amounts, on his way to his short summer coat.But he has stopped now with colder days this last week. So some pics of a very busy Magni on his birthday. He was to busy for pics. He only wanted to play with his buddies, check if we had put some new food on the plates, and checking out what we did. Chatting ALLLLLL the time :)))). He is the sweetest most wonderful kind kitty boy. We love him so much.He is so very dear to us.
Beautiful dear teddy tiger girl Mouna. HIPP HIPP HURRAY to our tiger teddy bear girl. She celebrated of cours with her brother, so that is further down the page. But she had no pics on the day. I only managed Maximus.But no pics outside this time. She was sleepy inside. On Magni`s birthday she was to busy playing with half brother Ne Me Quitte Pas, and then went to sleep in the shadow under Svein-Erik`s office cabin.
But anyway here is an other favored place. In bed, she loves that. And to sleep on top of you. She thinks that she is a tiny little baby kitten.But she is a HEAVY girl. So when she jumps on you to cuddle and put her mouth to hang on to your arm skinn like a kitten while trotting, that is somthing that you just have to get used to. Mouna is like a teddybear tiger big baby. She is just fantastic. Often both Mouna and mummy Tabitha lay side by side on top of me. That IS heavy with 2 purring large girls that headbang, trotts with powerful paws, and make lovebites and kitty nose kisses. Just wonderful. And then usually half sister tiger girl Penelope arrives as well ................ . Pluss Pluss.
A wonderful sleepy Mouna, but she woke up for pics.She has some very funny positions. And can lay on her back with her legs relaxed straight out and her front paws beside her ears,and her lovely tummy up in the air. She is so sweet.
Cool gorgeous Mouna and her cool gorgeous father Gregorius
Gregorius 4 years and 3 months had a great time playing with shells and wanting to cuddle, but then the mosquitos came in large schools. Around our eyes and ears, so then it was time to go inside. But he is a lovely and proud father to his offspring Mouna, Maximilian, Maximus and Ne Me Quitte Pas. And HE IS LOOOOOOVELY.
This is various parts of the bay. A great place to row and to freedive. It even has shell sand many places making the wather look almost light green and wonderful to dive into.
Other parts offer walldives with drop offs and one can sometimes find oneself in the midst of schools of mackerels, or herring, and many times several pollacks or cod. . And of cours one can meet crabs ( I just saw a couple of crabs mate in the green bay), lobster, shells and other ocean inhabitants. Also sharks and some times dolphins. So a great place for sea lovers.
Actually down in the old fishhall we have the old shark hooks on the wall. They used them to hold up the large fish body for preparation.They were used when they caught porbeagle, thresher shark, greenland shark etc. We do not use them of cours, since we support the banning of shark fin fishing. But it says something about the size of the sharks they chaught along these shores. The sharks may pass :)))outside in the sea.Smaler and larger ones. This summer people were scared of a joke about great white sharks arriving these shores outside Bergen. That was not the case, but earlier observations and catches of mackerel sharks, blue sharks, grey sharks are very well known. We have friends that have friends working at the university with marin biologi. They do not dare to swim here if on a visit hi hi :) . We still do though..... But we also have had plans many years now of chumming,to see if somthing may appear out in the open ocean. But not in our small rowing boat :)))) .
The Tall Ship Race 2014 passing our bay on a warm foggy day. Leaving Bergen after great celebrations at the port of Bergen.
What an event.
Bergen celebrated in a great way this weekend. That was on the birthday of Mouna and Maximus. They were cared very well for at home, and we took a small trip to the city centre to visit this great event. The city was closed for cars, so one could walk everywhere.And we even met a very cool cat out on his patrol ( WE NOW KNOW THAT HE IS A WELL KNOWN CELEBRITY and his name is LARS TARZAN. He is much loved and " owns " his part of Bryggen. I met him at his best buddies place. Sleeping among lots of gem stones, before he goes back to his mum as usual). That knows his way around and into The Rosenkrantz Hotel. He is famous for having learned when to visit the buffet at lunchtime :)))). So the friendly staff brings him back outside after having been visiting. Supersweet. So a warm Bergen city full of ships, sailors, " pirates", " vikings" , people from all over the world. Enjoying ships, all kinds of sea food , music and a stroll in this beautiful city. Wonderful and recomened of cours. Sorry about some unclear pics. My camera was put on to a wrong program and without flash.
Here is a link to where one can follow Staatsraad Lehmkuhl , The Ship, on it`s way into the port of Bergen. The crew is singing. They pass my old bathing place on the side of the tip of Nordnes in Bergen. From where I used to swim along the shores of Vågen. When we lived in the city center. And I even had a studio with my dear friend, on the docks where the ship stays. With an exciting view. And of cours Svein-Erik has been spending nights at " Bjørnehiet" on board and on the deck of The Staatsraad. So a lovely event in any way :)))) .Great.
Just skip the add on the link. But a sweet video it is , from Bergens Tidende BT 2014 :))) .
Hør Staatsraaden synge Tall Ship Race Bergen 2014
And of cours we have a great delight in buing our fish at Strandkaien fish AS
when we are in the Bergen city center . But nowadays we are also very much impressed by the new fish market in Bergen. Great sea food. Super fresh !!!!! pics willl come.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR M - LITTER 2 YEARS on the 25 th of July. Huge congrats to the wonderful dear tiger beauties Maximilian, Mouna and Maximus. We know Maximus and Mouna had a lovely day with their snacks. And Maximilian also.
And HIPP HIPP HURRAY and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY also to our gorgeous Q- Litter bluesilver tiger boy NE ME Quitte Pas . He became 1 year yesterday on the 28 th of July. So he had his favorite snack and a joint celebration with his halfsiblings Mouna and Maximus. Together they have had lots of cuddeling all day as well. Dear and wonderful all of them.
Beautiful Maximus out for a walk first busy all over and then he wants to play and cuddle. Mouna will also have her pics ASP. But she was sleepy in the shadow.
Big baby still. And SUPER COOL.
Our beautiful mister "strange", he is super social. He comes to stand with his head into your feet and is like a bodypart sometimes. But then his halfsiblings are the same as well. Kolya , Kohinoor ,Mouna and Maximus . He is connected to them both, so he is like all of them together. + mummy Debbie and daddy Gregorius.Supersweet.Best budddies are everyone, but specially Kolya, Maximus, Kohinoor, Penelope and of cours grand dad Haifa.
CH S* Zygot`s Slode 5 1/2 years needed to take some new photos to send to his wonderful grand child and greatgrand children in Sweden and children and grand children in Norway. Here he proudly sends them all a summer greeting hoping for some fish for dinner :))). He is just the sweetest cat, and gorgeous. He is always with us, but usually go to sleep under the boat or in the cathouses + bushes. So this time I finally had the camera ready just for him, since it is clouded and he wants to play.
Seafood please !!!!!
Isak is just one lovely and active boy. Also so very social, happy minded and chatty like his mother Byzants and daddy Slode. He is in his summer coat now, and in his diper haircut. Super cool and just lovely.Here he is helping to fix the rowingboat.
Slodes son Isak also wants seafood.
Isak has taken his bath once, so here he is looking at me freediving. That he could not understand :))) .
(N) MYRTEKRANSEN WISHES YOU ALL
A WONDERFUL SUMMER
The cattery has taken a short holiday at home in this wonderful weather in the westhern part of Norway. We are freediving from our own dock, and around the bay / ocean area. Waiting for the Tall Ship Race to enter Bergen. This is one of the best dive sites in Norway/ Scandinavia/ Northern Europe. So very beautiful with a great sight in clear wather with shell sand , gorgeous colors and such fresh salty wather. Sadly our old Canon underwather camera, only takes paper photos.Otherwise we would have been sharing pics. But Svein-Erik plans for a new camera to show the beautiful world underneath this northern sea.
We have both been freediving since many many years back. In Norway many places. South and west coast.Italy ( Tuscan coast .Maremma/Giglio) and Egypt ( Sinai Peninsula). These days we enjoy to dive with only our bathing suits on in our own famous dive area :)))). Usually this wathers are quite cold and will require our wetsuits 3 mm. for the summer/ atumn and my thicker 7 mm. Mares Antartica for wintertime , then with lead belts on..... . So this is just super :))) . The film The Big Blue is great, and the books of Carlos Eyles are super to learn about freediving.
+ some diving books on the techniques.
My freedinving mask, and testing my old Apenist watch.It needs to be used a bit. We have several fins, but these normal ones concerning length and put right on to the feets, are great for short dives.
1-2-3,and ready to go !!!!!!!!. First into the wather.Of cours in freediving you need to be in the wather to start the MDR reflex, dipping your face. Relaxing and focus on breath before breaking the surface downwards,+ get rid of the snorkel.Unless you wish to stay close to the surface. So hello fish, crabs, shells etc. Here we come for a short visit.
Svein -Erik gave me this beautiful old Norwegian flat oyster that he found.I put it back into our bay, but I took pics for my work.
Right beside the end of the concrete dock, our blue silvertiger prince Ne Me Quitte pas was busy playing in the fireweed like as if he was a panda bear in a bamboo forest. He was realy working hard " paws on", building himself a shady " little nest". Making lots of sounds with branches cracking and him wrestling with the plants. And then lurking at the freediving with his halfbrother Kolya. He was busy back and forth between Ne me Quitte pas and the dock,looking into the bucket with the oyster and seaweed.
Beautiful silver tiger princess and one of the sweet bosses, Kohinoor. Always around checking and caring for everyone. She has full controll like grandad Haifa and is just the sweetest thing.Kohinoor is now 3 years 7 months and wonderful. Here she has a full belly and a dirty nose from her hunt in the gras.She has just had a " fresh " meal for herself.
Proud beautiful sister Kohinoor and beautiful super charmer brotherKolya relaxing in the heat.
Both are 3 years and 7 months now.

Isak is the boss now with Haifa. And Penelope was a tricky one to day. Just

Here the very busy teasy Nike had to take a break as well. After playing with her friend Penelope, and having had a snack from Kohinoor.

Belinda and Diana outside also. Belinda just runs up and down the basement and prefer afternoon walks. Diana loves to have controll from her shelves inside together with her their lazy daughter SUPER PRINCESS PRINCESS XXXX Byzants. So as soon as they decide, I `ll take some pics :)))) .
Tabitha outside the catrun. Having catnip plants and guarding her daughters Mouna and Penelope , + her adoptive daughter Nike. All our plants have dried up while I was away, but the catnip bushes are growing :))) .
Tabitha with her friend Calamity. They have shared litters and are born on the same day.
Calamity adopted Tabitha right away when she moved to us as a kitten. Now Calamity keep Tabithas daughter with Hieronimus like her own, and Calamity is the grand mother, so she keeps Nike, Penelope and Ophelia as her babies. They all take a sip now and then.
Even Mouna is babylike still, but she is more mummy Tabithas girl. But sleeps with them all.
Wonderful gorgeous long and tall " Tiger teddy " queen Calamity now 7 years. She is just fantastic, and a bit sleepy in the sudden heat at first. Then she got the catnip plant and root. She is losing her fur every day now. Getting summer short.

Yummy, catnip flowers
6 years now, beautiful beautiful funny sunbeam lover Joy is with me looking at small fishes nesting in the seaweed. So sweet !!!!!!!
Hello hello little fishes
Beautiful Joy 6 years now, enjoying her sunbeams. I had washed her, because the lovely white part of her coat gets so greyish when she rolls over all the time. So she became almost dry, but right after she was rolling around on the sandy places again :)))). She loves that. Almost dry on some pics, and then dry but rolling over into sand and pebles the next. But a very beautiful tortie she is. AND A GREAT SUN LOVER. So snacks and summer sunbeams for beautiful Joy to celebrate her 6 th birthday.
Beautiful Nike 1 year and 10 months, and beautiful Penelope 1 year and 1 month. Outside with Svein-Erik + me, Kohinoor, Gregorius relaxing in the bushes, and Haifa + Debbie guarding/ playing. Nikes grandad Slode also always comes with us, but he was in the shadows under a bush. They had a wonderful time outside. With Nike`s mother Calamity staring intensly from inside the catrun :))) at her daughter and 2 grandchildren Penelope and Kohinoor. With Huriel and Ophelia beside her. They are like siblings and do everything together. But only some can come out, so today Nike had a lovely time ,already in her short summer coat like her dad Isak and mum Calamity. She had a great time rolling over in the gras and among pebbles, so her hairdo was full of sand and branches. But a lovely summer girl :))) . Grand mother Byzants has not lost her full coat, so mabye she is next for photos.
Kohinoor beautiful as always. She lookes very much like grandad Haifa. Though a girl
Nike and Haifa. And Debbie guarding all the time. And being cuddely and chatty as always.

Here they are visiting AnneMa and Hasi`s daughter Maren in Oslo, while they were on a holiday. She is often a " cat/kitty sitter", so Max knows his way around in her flat. Thank you for lovely pics Maren and AnneMa, and for loving them so much.
Half siblings having a great time with us in the sun. Debbies 3 kittens Kolya 3 1/ 2 years, Ne Me Quitte Pas 11 months and the only daughter Kohinoor 3 1/2 years. They love to play together and Kohinoor, Kolya and grandad Haifa at 6 years,loves to play with and raise youngsther Ne Me Quitte Pas. Debbie was outside herself, guarding from the shadows. Kolya and Kohinoor are offspring after Debbie and Hieronymus, and Ne Me Quitte Pas after Debbie and Gregorius. So grandad Haifa is grandfather to them all. And loves to guard and play. daddy Gregorius is more lazy, leaving the upbringing to siblings and grandad.Haifa is always with them and us. Here he is busy helping Kolya+Kohinoor raising Ne Me Q Pas. Ne Me Quitte Pas is trying to lurke and wrestle with everyone. Such a big baby. And just as chatty as his half siblings Kolya and Kohinoor.
Kolya often have the looks of Hieronymus, but with a different head, and he also resembles the father of Debbie. So he is a lovely mix. With gorgeous tufs coming from both mummy Debbie and daddy Hieronymus.
Kohinoor having full control on Ne Me Quitte Pas while relaxing in the shadow.
Busy Ne Me Q Pas, and Haifa taking a break from wrestwling with his grandson.
When Haifa thinks " game over", he sets himself on top of Ne Me Q Pas. And takes a break, while Ne Me Q Pas follows and wait to play more. Having a great time. With Kolya Ne Me Q Pas is more like an adventurer, following up on everything he does. Chatting. Kohinoor loves to wash him and to play. It is so sweet. Debbie mostly greets with nose kisses, greets, guards and chatts.
Ne Me Quitte Pas following cool grandad Haifa. Beautiful sweetheart Kolya in his summer / and Libro dipers coat ( our males in dipers get a shorter cut where the dipers are placed) watching seagulls.

Beautiful Pelle Panther, beautiful Panthera Petra,beautiful Pernille, beautiful Pavel and our own beautiful Penelope.
Lots of purrrrs and kitty kisses from mummy Tabitha, Penelope and halfsiblings Maximus + Mouna, and of cours from grandmum Calamity and grandad Haifa. Sadly daddy Hieronymus sends his best wishes from behind the cats rainbow. But his babies are such a great gift from him.
Beautiful Penelope at near 1 year. She is on the pill, but almost went into a small heat, so no new outside pics for her on her birthday. But a great day in the catrun with her buddies. Having both stewed and grilled chicken, some meat, and in the evening some shrimps. And lots of cuddeling. A great and busy Penelope day :))). She is just fantastic. We love her so much.
Her gorgeous large brother Pelle had a wonderful day also we know. And it looks very much like he is going to be a dad in July :)))))))))))) . HURRRRRRAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HAPPY BIRTH DAY TO OUR BEAUTIFUL H-LITTER. 4 Years today 18/5.
Huge Congrats from us in Norway to Helene in Denmark and Hektor in Italy.
Sadly our dear Hieronymus is only in our dearest memories. But he was gorgeous. We hope that Helene and Hektor have a fantastic day in Denmark and Italy.
Here are some greetings for them from mummy Calamity Jane and daddy Haifa, and niece Penelope and half grand nephew + grand niece Ne Me Quitte pas + Ophelia.
We hope that mummy Calamity at 7 years will be a mother again this year.
But she sends off her warmest purrs and greetings to beautiful daughter Helene and son Hektor.
Happy Birthday Helene, and Hektor. And our dear Hieronymus.
We miss him ( Jolanda and Juventus + Ariel) horribly
Haifa is very busy all over raising grand children Ne Me Quitte pas and Penelope.
Helene and Hektor may be a grand aunt and a granduncle this summer, we suspect that Huriel de la Fôret d`Amalion BE *expects her first litter with Helene and Hektor`s nephew (N)Myrtekransen`s Pelle Panther NFO n 23.
Niece Penelope sends of some purrring greetings from Norway to aunt Helene in Denmark and uncle Hektor in Italy.
My last pictures of daddy Hieronymus last late September 2013
Fantastic daddy Hieronymus above . Luckily we still have his tiger daughter Penelope, silverprincess Kohinoor and super charmer Kolya.
After all we have his offspring. And lovely memories of a great and wonderful tigerboy. But also now always being very affraid of them being out of sight / arms reach. Hopefully this may never happen again. It was a great loss. Him and his daughter ( and Ariel +Juventus his friends). Pure nature can be very dangerous, so it is important to learn how to live with it.
Lovely Magni almost 10 years having a great time with his best friends.
Haifa raising Ne Me Quitte pas, and Magni looking. They love to play with him. And Haifa loves to play and wrestle with his grandson.
Ophelia and Penelope
Beautiful Ophelia has found a nice spot to lurk on Ne Me Quitte pas and Penelope. Her best buddies.
Ne Me Quitte Pas NFO as 23 almost 10 months. 5 kilos. Here with grandad Haifa NFO ns
Son of Gregorius NFO ns.
Haifas grandaughter Ophelia NFO n 09, after daughter Godiva NFO n 09.
* * * * * *
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Penelope NFO n 09 23 ( this is Pelle Panther`s sister)at 11 months playing outside with grandad DK Elkington`s Haifa Wonder NFO ns now 6 years. They had a great time in the lovely sun.
Penelope has her daddy Hieronymus eyes, but is already broader in type like Haifa and mother Tabitha. Hieronymus was large but longer and higher in type after his mother and half of his father side. So very strange to se his tiger princess develope, with his beautiful tiger gaze as a dear reminder. I can play with them outside, if very careful, and I have to check all the time up in the air. As do her guardian grandfather Haifa. But he loves to come and play and is very protective of his grand children,very sweet. They must share his scent or someting. He knows.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR WONDERFUL G-LITTER. 4 years on The 5 th of May.
We wish Godiva, Gasparian, Goya, Gauthier and our own lovely Gregorius all the best.
And hope they had lovely birthdays.
* * * * * *
Gregorius celebrated his day being very busy and love sick. We have some girls that went into heat, and Maximus tried to date Calamity again. But we may change to Gregorius next time.
So he had his treats which are cat snack mousse, minced meat, sardines and some fish in stock.
And he his just gorgeous this black smoke prince. A proud dad to Maximus, Mouna and Ne Me Quitte Pas. Here he is with me and buddy Kolya for a tea break on a favorite spot on the dock. Rolling over in gras and sand ;) making himself look very " pretty" full of it all.
Beautiful blue silver tiger boy Ne Me Quitte Pas NFO as 23. 9 1/2 months.Having a great time in the sun during my coffee break. Being super sweet playing and chatting.
Our dear beautiful Huriel has just come back from The Møre coast and her romantic date with Pelle Panther NFO n 23.
And Huriel has a new dear friend in Pelles best buddy/ sister Frøya(she calls him her brother. So sweet). Huriel enjoyed a lot sleeping in Frøyas bed,being a Miss Kitty princess with her new friend Frøya.Pelle Panther on the other hand was about 6,5 kilos some time a go. Now mabye more, but he is only 11 months. So a large tiger boy for Huriel`s date. His vet is also a breeder, has remarked many times that he is a very large NFO boy for his age. And by size first thought to be a Main Coon. She knows cat.II very well from shows and her practise:) . So we all hope for large beauties in July.
Huriel is very busy with her boyfriend Pelle. Here the 2 lovers are having a romantic meal together. So very sweet.Pelle to the left, Huriel to the right. Here he is 11 months old. Huriel is 2 years and 2 months now. She used to care for and play with him as a kitten last summer/ autumn 2013 . Now she is having a great romance with him. And it all seems very successful We need to start collecting names on R-. Pelles sister Penelope is by the way one of her favorite friends.
Huriel may even send a greeting back home to Belgium. Her parents ( on 4 and 2 legs may be grand parents this summer). I have an other wonderful pic of Huriel being cuddeled by her new friend Frøya. But I want clarification before letting it on to the pages. It is so sweet 2 " princesses".
Thank you so much to the Eid family,for taking such great care of our beautiful Huriel on her romantic visit.
Pelle is a large youngster on large paws . 6.5 kilos some time a go said the owner. Now he`s 11 months. And growing.
Beatuiful black panther NO* Mimesbrunnen`s Ask NFO n has a great time being taken well care of by his beautiful father (N) Myrtekransen`s Maximilian NFO ns 23 ( now a proud neutered dad to his son Ask and siblings and the (N) Mardolls litter). Ask lives with AnneMa and Hansi at Hurum / Drammen. He was prebooked, and will live as daddy`s boy and a family boy with AnneMa and Hansi. Also for show breeding later.
He has been to the vets for a visit, and thought to be as large and heavy as his dad. So they said a lot of nice things about him. CONGRATULATIONS ANNEMA and HANSI , with a great offspring after your ( our) dear boy Maximilian. Thanks to beautiful IC (N) Alneskatten`s Devi Delight and Janne at NO* Mimesbrunnen. Best wishes for daddy Maximilian and son Ask for many many years to come. We are so happy that Maximilian has given such wonderful offspring in the east.

Beautiful Ne Me Quitte Pas NFO as 23 almost 9 months. Here he is on his favorite upper shelf in my working room being busy " working". He always comes to look, cuddle, chat a lot, play a bit and then take a cat nap.
And then came half sister Mouna. This is her favorite place while I work as well. And wants excactly the same treatment. To cuddle, chat, look,play a bit and take a cat nap beisde her half brother. They share the same dad Gregorius, that by the way also likes the same place and treament :) .... Obviously a family thing hi hi hi. Usually Mouna goes round my legs and throw her self on the ground while chatting, and Ne Me Quitte Pas streches his wole body up my legs waving his paws for attention. If Huriel , Calamity , Ophelia, Fiorenza and Nike also come a long, then there is a lot of paw waving,playing and attention seeking behavior on the shelves. So they keep me company :) .
Beautiful blue silverboy (N) Myrtekransen`s Ne Me Quitte Pas NFO as 23 . 8 months.
Son of CH S* Zygot`s Debbie-Doss and CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Gregorius.
He wishes EVERYONE a HAPPY EASTER !!!!!!!!!!
Daddy Gregorius was sleepning bed, but son Quitte Pas was very much awake and ready to send an easter greeting.
I took beautiful black smoke daddy CH (N) Myrtekransens`Gregorius NFO ns for a walk also. He will soon be 4 years. And is a proud dad to his offspring.He was head banging into everything, rolling over in the small heather and juniper bushes, and on the rocks. So his hairdo became full of branches, plants, mos and dew.Chatting all the way and eating heather tips. Just wanted to cuddle a lot. He is losing his winter coat as well, so collar and such are almost gone now. And super sweet. Sometimes he looks so much like halfbrother Hieronymus. But in black smoke and with a slight difference. Just lovely.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR HAIFA !!!!
Our dear dear sweet beautiful teddy bear is 6 years today on the 10 of April.
We wish him all the best. He has had his breakfast snack. And later today it will be his favorite. Grilled chicken and meat. And a lot of cuddling. He is such a wonderful boy and very dear to us. We tried some pics , but it was a bit windy, and he just chased leafs and played at full speed. But cool and playful as always. He proudly sends off his greetings to all his lovely offspring and grand children.
Haifa had catnip roots, so he forgot his tongue and looks very funny.
Here is Haifa with his grandson Kolya. I took them both out to play in the sun. They were enjoing themselves a lot. And both loves attention, and they are so sweet. Kolya is losing all his collar and winter fur now
* * * * *
Gorgeous (N) Myrtekransen`s Pelle Panther NFO n 23 ( geno n 09 23. Has just very few white hairs on his tail tip).
Here he is 9 months and very large and beautiful already. We hope for one of our girls to go into heat now, for his litter here at (N) Myrtekransen.He is a wonderful family cat , that has been kept as an external male for us, and for a friend of the owner. They can not have kittens now, therefore we are open to a new solution for this large fantastic boy after our dear Hieronymus and Tabitha. Sadly Huriel went quickly into heat, and also ended it very fast. Not being able to keep her heat for the flight / travel. So we are thinking. He is much to beautiful to not have offspring. He was by the vets concidered to be a large Maine Coon by his size on his visit , and the vet said " she could not belive his age" ,because he was so large for his age. So a wonderful large youngster he is.
Some late afternoon photos today. And a very quick layout.
I will try to get Tabitha`s page back into normal.
Tabitha and her 2 daughters Mouna and Penelope + adoptive daughter Kohinoor are waiting for the barbeque outdoor season to start for real. Meanwhile catnip roots are very popular. Here is Mouna 1 year and 8 + months.
With halfsister Penelope 10 1/2 months
Mouna with beautiful mum Tabitha. She will be 4 years in June
( I do not know why her page does not come up now.
But I `ll find out). Tabitha gets bored with takings pics, but loves catnip and
to cuddle a lot.
Tabitha looking at the birds outside, but also wants the catnip root.
Catnip roots are soooo YUMMY
Beautiful Kohinoor also wanted to cuddle and have catnip roots.
But she was so busy looking at the birds outside.
Kohinoor is 2 1/2 years.
Kohinoor and Penelope sharing a catnip root
A very happy Kohinoor
Action outside the cat run.
And then came Penelope again.
Beautiful mum Tabitha finishing her photo session
Walking the silver tiger
Tabitha and Gregorius son Maximus. A very large boy at 1 year and 8 months.He is the brother of Mouna , and Maximilian in Drammen/ Hurum.
He is a fertile male. We had hoped Calamity expected with him in around 3 of April. But she came back into heat earlier. But gorgeous he is. A kind heavy silver tiger boy. He is as large as he looks on the pics. And muscular, heavy boned and powerfult bulit but slim. Getting more and more broad,now on his way into summer coat :) .
Beautiful Maximus and beautiful cool grandad Haifa. Haifa will be 6 years on the 10 of April.
Our cool beautiful heavy silver smoke teaddy bear. AND the BOSS.
We are testing out my " sheep" like hairdo as a photo bait :) . It works in fact. And attracts attention towards Sven-Erik and me bird watching.But here I have my large red working dress back on. It works better with the dark blue outdoor dress I use for walks. And NB: this is of cour not useful as a normal presentation of oneself :))) .
Svein-Erik can not do the "sheep hairdo", he is not sheep like. So then it is only me as photo bait :) .
So last week we had the eagle/ s coming every day, several times a day. We had a very nice weather here in the west, so it even appeared on my walks down to my " new " friends ( the lamas now back outside again), and I myself was also looking for wild sheep / sheep all the way on my trip. The wild sheep / and sheep in this area are giving birth to lambs now. But they have large areas to feed and move on during the day. Then suddenly I also could see that the eagle pair hunts together,collaborating , part and meet up again in the bay. They know where the herds of sheep are, and take flight directions straight to them and then circle above , looking down, gliding and narrowing There are 3 different places. And the eagles partet to each " air gate" with airflows and drifts ( one mountain valley and one long narrow strait) and on on two sides. Hunting and gliding over the sheep herds. Up and down and around.Then the next herd ahead, and then over our bay and our house. Looking down at us. Both Svein-Erik and me . When I was out on my walk, one of them came towards me at full speed,since I talked to it. It made a huge turn circling above, and then came straight at me with folded wings in an air dive. Last time it did that it came and breaked off hanging in front of me ( then I managed closer pics before it was to low and on its way back up), and S-E behind me. This time I had to say OHHHHHHH !!! and wave. Sadly those pics are just blue sky and some electric wires because of my arms waving. A lady was walking behind me beside her bicycle, so it took off up in the air. But it followed all the way back home to meet its friend/ partner that took the other way over all the sheep fields by the strait. So I was in no need to see the falconry show with eagles that I was invited to see on an old castle near Graz in Austria. We have the same, and more then enough.
Then they meet here. And we saw them many times, and when detected by the seagulls. It is such a noise and action. The eagle that followed me, chased a wild goose over the hill top above the bay. It screamed but manage to fly into safety on the little island. So plenty of action. And that is why we can not let the cats outside the house without guarding. On the 1 of april I also found some part remains of Jolanda. Very very sad. Some fur and tiny bones. We will burry them. It was just up the hill. And found by luck now befor the gras grows. I have surched there many times since autumn 2013.The rest of her is probably part of an eagles body now. Very strange. But the eagles have scattered different animal body parts all over this area. Probaly also further south along their " gate ways in the air". The marked bird I found was a homing pigeon. The owner was notified by their organization ( via UIB/ Museum of Stavanger -). We always have monoculars and camera on stand by. I have asked for a new camera :))). My " ROUGH" camera can not focus very well on action photos in nature outdoors. At the moment this is the situation. But we take precautions for cat safety. From where I sit now, on the computer. The eagles often pass our window even. Cross the bay, take off from our roof, lursk behind the hill. Once the whole belly , caudal/butt, legs , wingspan, color, fur, eyes ,head could be seen within and arms reach in the window frame. In an upwards turn following a hunt flight dive down towards our part of the bay ( that was the White-tailed Eagle ). The Golden Eagles are those that are a pair. So if you look down only a second, you may miss this. This is how qick and quiet it is. We have lost many opportunites of great photos while working. But .......... .
At least we know how very close the come near to us. These pics are from several days, locations and both of the 2 Golden Eagles in each direction. The one with all the seagulls is when they are chasing the eagle into the pinetree forest. It was sitting there for a long time while they were flying over making a lot of noise.

3 and 4 years today and yesterday !!!!!!!!!
We wish beautiful Istanbul, Izmir and our own dear dear Isak the very best for their birthdays that was yesterday, I have switched the dates. But our fantastic boy had a great day with lots of treats, he likes all kinds of food. And loves attention and to be cuddeled. So he had a great day and evening yesterday. With a beautiful stray evening to enjoy without the egale. Here a few of our beautiful dear happy minded boy. He was very busy looking after Penelope , head baning into bushes and rolling around all over So almost impossible to get him into focus.But lovely he is.
And then we wish Felix, Fresia, Fawn and our own Fiorenza a SUPER DAY. Great with lots of fun.
Beautiful special Fiorenza started by midnight,
having a mousse snack.
She can not go outside. She has been off the pill.
And she is as charming as ever. Here she is in one of her favorite places initially sleepy but given a catnip root to enjoy. She eats on them and gets very happy and excited :))). She LOOOVES catnip. I have picekd her a large cat nip root to play with and enjoy. She is our
only offspring fertile after Aurora. So a bit special.
She is suuuper tiger like her mother, and funny like both dad Slode and mum. She is a cool mix of both.
HAPPY BIRTH DAY BEAUTIFUL DEAR DEAR LOVELY
CH S* ZYGOT`S DEBBIE-DOSS NFO ns 09 24
Our fantastic sweetheart is 6 years today. And she has had some treats for breakfast, mousse and snacks. Then she will have some more of her specialities. Kippers etc. Debbie has a very special taste in food. So she doesn`t care for the pollock in stock the others had. Debbie is a fertile breeding queen, that is the proud beautiful mother to our Kohinoor, Kolya and Ne Me Quitte Pas. She is so sweet and kind, with a lovely lovely personality. All her kittens have also very special personalites. AND WHAT A SUPER SUPER LOOK . We love her so very very much. So HIPP HIPP HURRAY DEBBIE queen of hearts :))) .
Debbie does not like to be outside, she was there when Jolanda was taken by the eagle. And had a great sorrow for a long time. Jolanda was an adoptive daughter from when she had kittens together with Fiorenza. But slowly she likes to play outside for a short while evenings. But when I am with her outside, she relaxes and play. Not far from me, so that was easy to take close pics and guard her. She looked up all the time. And did not want to come up the little hill to play in the little juniper " forest". But that is fine. And lovely she is :))) in the early spring sunlight.

_____ AT THE MOMENT AVAILABLE ____
Well I have been out on an excursion to the " eagles nest " on the other side. A new place across the bay where the eagles take off from towards us.
That was giving even more new information. A lot of new skeletons. And sadly 3 + of them skulls from otters. So now we know also what happened to at least 1 of the the otters that came to seek refugee in our cat houses, and wanted to move inside the cat runs. At the time of Ariels tragic death in late autumn 2012. I even found parts of sheeps wool in the forest at the " summit".
This is the beauty of it all. Fantastic mountain shapes diving directly into the cresting bay.
This is a lovely freshwather lake behind the near forest and into the near forest. Where the deers, hare , woodcocks , owls and other wildlife live. And where our cats love to go.
A victim. I could just follow the electric instalation piles.
And under and around of them was as suspected due to sightings of hunt dives, a lot of
rests of animals. Smaller ones.
This is one of the otter skeletons. There were several.
Earlier in the bay we had at least 4, the wildlife experts told us.
Well here at least 4 of them are dead and eaten. Only bones left.
Ohh dear my deer. This fantastic deer eneded here. With its horns into the tree. I changed it for photos.
We had once a whole family coming to eat blue and red berries by our house. A male, a female and a babydeer.
This we think is to large for the eagles, and it is not allowed to hunt and shoot here. So ...
Some wool from a sheep.
Our two young banditts at work. They are rarely clear together clear in 1 pic at the time.

SO WE HAVE AT LEAST __2__ LARGE GROWN UP EAGLES .....
Here Svein-Erik came back from Bergen, having his shopping bags with him, and by that Haifa ran out the door quickly between his feet while being down in the basement. I was in the phone above them with AnneMa. But somehow I felt earlier by all the activites from my view,that the ravens, the crows and the pica picas were a bit " funny" near to our house. Waiting.So I had my little camera ready in case. Then suddenly THEY took off from the other side. Straight towards the house, taking a turn after having had a direction towards the island with the old wild forest . She/He/They often hide inside. Then I took photos. But that was from the window, and they were in a hunt dive towards Haifa by the door. So I just had to run, with my heart jumping wildly. The camera, I forgot. When I came out they were hunting towards us, passing, and took off in an other direction when I ran upstairs. This is how qick it is. And no doubt. They hunt. I have many photos of the clouds because a hunt glide strike goes so very fast. I`ll try to get the multiple action function on, so that the camera just goes off into many pics after each other. Because these will come back hunting again. I have not yet decided to wear one of Svein-Eriks Gecko Gear speedboat helmets, or to fuzz my hair even more to look like a wild sheep. Because I may that way attract them, AND get a good close up if they think that am a real wild sheep. I have almost no zoom, so I need to be right under.They both really look down on me and into my eyes with their heads tilting back and forth, before they " dive". That dive might be estimated to 150 km an hour. So I may have to begg S-E for a camera with a qick zoom. Since it is me they come after always. S-E is tall with no fuzzyy curly hair at all. He does not look like a wild sheep !!! . But I look more like the wild sheep version on 2 legs :))) . So my job this.
Our cats on the other hand must NOT AT ALL be outside. Not even their shadow.
So until next time. News is that there are two. In addition to the White Tail Eagle. Makes at least 3. No wonder there are sheep and animal boones all over the cliff hang . This all went so fast.
If one did not look out for it, and be placed like this.It would really go unnoticed.
On the last pic, they have decided for a direct direction towards us. One can see the turn, and then I had to run. Fast to Haifa and S-E ... . Haifa was put inside, but they came and they passed us , and went off further ahead.
This is all within seconds. Haifa knew them, he ran to the outdoor cat house and ran to me as soon as he saw me coming for him. So this is how dangerous it is.

WISH THEM ALL THE BEST. Our computer has been updated, so we have to get used to the new version. And that was on Byzants day.
HIPP HIPP HURRAY TO OUR DEAR GORGEOUS ONES: BATHSEBA, BOLSHOI, BRANKA, BOSPOROS and our own DEAR DEAR BYZANTS. She has treats the ways she likes it. Often every day, and many times a day. After all, SHE IS A " REAL SILVER PRINCESS+ PRINCESS...." :)))).So Byzants had a wonderful day, and inside in the bad weather,having treats and much love. That we know is purrfect for her. But mabye she will like to take photos outside now, with a milder climat on its way. AND WE WISH THEM ALL WONDERFUL DAYS AHEAD.
* * * * *
AND even more lovely pics of our fantastic offspring Pelle at 9 months. Having a great time with his beloved Eid family on Møre, and being taken all over for all " his holidays ". So he is a beloved boy as well. On these pics he is 9 months.
AND GORGEOUS. + busy like his sister. Thank you so much dear Kristin, for really doing some har work taking photos. We do know the speed of his tiger sister Penelope. Pelle looks even more like daddy Hieronymus then her. But they are such great versions of their to fantastic parents and family. WOW HE IS SUPER !!!!!!!!!!! .
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Penelope NFO n 09 23. 9 Months and so beautiful.
I took only her and grandad Haifa out with me for some day time photos. She was of cours very playful, fast and allover. So I could just take her + the guarding Haifa. We had to run around up the hill and into bushes.
I had to be quick, because it did not take long before the first raven came over "telling" that the cats were our. Then came the next ..... . The raven and a crow are still outside the office window calling from the top of an electric wire. But lovely photos and some running around the bushes we managed :))) .
She has her fathers eyes, but now looks also so much like her uncle Tibor, and her mum as well. Or even her great great grandfather on Haifas side. She looked like a copy of Hieronymus when born and little. Being his favorite baby, though he loved them all. They were like Ariel and his grand daughter Amalie together. But now she looks like so many of her ancestors. Very funny and developing of cours.She is still like Hieronymus, but more broad in a way, with his type and eyes, and she is long but looks like a young boy.She is gorgeous anyway.
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen Ophelia NFO n 09 1 year and 3 months.
I took Ophelia outside with Magni also. Because they love to sleep by the heater, the collars have started to go off now with warmer weather. So I have to hurry for pics of them, before it all comes off.
But she is so wonderful. And I wished for a few outdoor photos of her lovely expression. But it was rather obvious that the eagle was near by. The raven couple came over us all the time, and then they went back and forth to the little island in the bay. That place is like an old forest with dense vegetation and very old trees. The eagle often stays there before take offs. So the ravens looked like they were " telling " that we were out again. So I had to break and take Ophelia and Magni back inside the catrun. I can not take risks. But a few of our black beauty as well. But at least Ophelia looks up, and knows the ravens actions. Now we wait for the eagle/s to turn up mabye. ........... .
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Pelle Panther NFO n 23 (n 09 23. Has just a very very few white hairs on his tail tip so feno n 23 and genotype n 09 23).8 months and large and heavy. His veterinarian , quote owner " Did not beleive her ears " when told he was only 8 months, and thought he was a Main Coon. He is well over 5 kilos for some time now.So he`ll also be a large boy , like his father Hieronymus and and mother Tabitha. His sister Penelope is also a large girl allready.
He looks FANTASTIC. And OHHHHH we see so much of his dear beautiful father
Hieronymus in him. We will try to make a combination before he will be neutred
this spring. He is a dear beloved family boy.
That will be with NO* Boote`s Amalie Amadeus NFO w 63 ( odd eyed)
or beauty from Belgium , Huriel de la Fôret d`Amalion BE*
Her Pelle is with his beautiful best friend Frøya. They are just wonderful :)))
Thank you so much dear Kristin for such lovely pics on busy days, and for loving our dear Pelle so much.
8 months on pics ( ?)
Pelle with his "best buddy sweet sweet princess Frøya". Wonderful.

Medio February when I came back from work over the Alps:
Busy days the half part of the cattery has been at work, and took the camera out on a trip over the Alps :))))
But today when I was back home, talking to breeder Janne at
NO* MIMESBRUNNEN,THEN WE SUDEDDENLY AGAIN HAD 2 EAGLES coming in ( Golden Eagle/Aquila chrysaetos) + ( Haliaeetus albicilla /White tailed Eagle).
Both of them circling our house, roof and both of us.Above me, and later also Svein-Erik. Hunting in circles above us. Looking down passing us. Luckily Janne suggested sports function for photos of them . They are so difficult to get photos of we know for some time now. We only have dotts, behinds and traces in the snow from hunting landings.So now finally after over 1 1/2 years of photo hunting, I managed to frame one of them ( Aquila chrysaetos) into these unclear photos. Without a zoom. Then one can understand how large and close in fact. We were checked out as prey we guess :) . It is now clear that we have both of the largest eagles in Norway hunting around above our house. With their friends the ravens and crows following. Waiting for what they will catch. ALL OUR CATS WAS of course inside. But here one can see why we can not take outdoor photos of the cats any more :(((((( . Then they arrive at once.
On its way towards me and Svein-Erik behind me outside.
Preparing an air dive .
Checking out if there are someone to hunt and take away.
I look like a sheeps head from above, so I might ought to use a helmet mabye hi hi hi ;))) .
Checking in on me, looking down.
Diving in front of me. Taking off , returning for a new dive.
Passing over the small top beside the Gattostrada.
Taking a new turn. And looking right at me.
The crows gather and wait .............. .
Here is from an other afternoon now in late February.At early dusk. It ( She)came in over us (with the rawens) in one fast glide flight, sitting on the roof and behind on our little hill top. That she often lurks take off from. And then after having been sitting by the catrun a while with the ravens and crows chatting and waiting, took off to the other side with them,to glide very low over the tree tops there. There there are hare and mice aswell.The ravens and crows seems to " tell" on the cats to the eagle that the cats are here ( they looked from inside their catrun). Then it went hunting in sircles and dives on its last attemts before the arriving darkness. One could hear them from across the bay, chatting to the eagle. With a lot of birdsounds.This is how we have seen it here often to search for our cats. At this hour it is very dangerous and difficult to see. And if it has an good air flow. It can sitt still observing for a long time and take off very silently. Like a huge dark shadow and hang almost still in the air above the house, us and the cats for a long time. Looking down. Once I stood under " her" talking to her. She just came closer in on me tilting her head from side to side looking direct at me. This was right after Ariel. I " asked" her to move. Obviously that did not work with this proud queen. Here one can understand a bit about her wingspan. If She sits on the electric wire instalation top, her wings streched fully out, covers the whole horizontal wood beam top of it. In a hunt dive flight we saw her with wings spread straight out to fly and dive to the side and straight down below. There she took a small pray with her. Those pics of her touch and go landing place I took last February and is further down the this side. And shows her size and hunt abilities in the traces left in the snow.
So finally some unclear shots of one of them, it all goes so fast. But no longer only pics of wings, feet and bloddy prey marks in the snow.
They come all the time now
A couple of days after I took the pics of the eagle coming towards me after my return from over the Alps.It came back of course. Over the tree tops hunting. So I follwed. But it tok off in a rather difficult direction for me to run around in. So instead I took a look where it was before that. And I do not need to comment I think. This part of the forest was full of bones under the trees all the way along the cliffs and into the forest part, so I followed and found a place to store pray. No wonder it checks me out. My fuzzy hair may from above look like one of it`s favorite pray. Wild Sheep.
Lots of bones and skulls were found. From different animals sadly. The view from its / their bone nest, is directly towards our house.

Beautiful super cool silverboy
(N)Myrtekransen`s Isak NFO ns 09 24.
A beautiful very proud grandfather to the FANTASTIC (N) MARDOLLS KITTENS.
He is such a sweet and funny charmer, and very chatty as
well. Here he is getting some fresh air without his diper on.
But it is such a freezing day with a real icing bite in the wind.
Isak mostly closed his eyes or turned away from the wind. And Tabitha, Kohinoor and Huriel as well.
So they just packed them selves together. And no action.
Isak looking at his view. But a bit to cold
Beautiful Tabitha, she just wanted back inside to a warm bed.
Beautiful Kohinoor wanted to come outside, but then she found out how cold it was. So that focused at all. And the birds were outside the catrun. She was with Jolanda, when we lost her. So a bit veary now, of the seagulls and the sounds of the crows.
But here she can see a very small and beautiful bird with its beautiful red breast. I ran inside to find some nice bread for him / her. And that was so interesting.
Then her lovely friend Huriel came to play and look at the bird.
The catrun works very well. It can be very windy though.Still some more to do. And later the now oldest catrun part leading to it will be rebuilt as well.
I plan for a new extesion later this year. More like a triangle towards the yard. That also can be connected to the small fence now out of use. And with a small tilted roof on to protect from rain and to let the wind pas. But for now. The old dog catrun is built into the 2 newer parts that are connected to the other catruns in the old Gattostrada. So they can run around and around the dogrun and go in and out to look at each other. With little plastic houses to sleep in . Nice and dry. So infact we have several catruns put together. And that is great during day time, when the eagle may appear. I now plan for the one down stairs as well. Then they can go in and out of the halls down stairs.
Halvsisters Mouna ( left)1 1/2 year and 5.4 kilos and Penelope (right) 7 months love to sleep belly up if we look at a movie. This is on my lap. Mum Tabitha also often comes up and Calamity of cours. Then they all lay side by side. Even Haifa tries to have his belly up side by side with his offsprings ( or alone)on his favorite sheep fleece ( The favorite fleeces of Haifa changes. But any one I wear, or if on his own in the sofa beside Svein-Erik is wonderful. But at the moment Haifas` favorite is this blue silvery one. That his granddaughters now have taken. Both my lap and his favorite fleece.
Huriel out on climbing actions in the catrun
Here with Maximus that had his dipers on, but the last pics with it of. They are so used to it now.
There are some carpentring and fixing up to do
after the horrible storm( s ) we had . In fact I was up in the air holding on to the wooden pillars, while the walls bent in at the same time. It sounded like an old wooden sailing ship being in a full storm , bending at 3 places.Quite an experience. That is also why I now have added long super heavy iron pillars horizontally at the bottom that runs all the way connecting heavily between the catruns.It does not look cat run fancy at all.But here in our place, IT WORKS :))) And I made some attached hatches at the bottom of the pillars. That keeps the pillars and roof a bit down to earth. Since it all is like a great sail in a way.So it keeps us from being an old sail ship cast out into the wild Northern Sea at a full storm again. So to all of you that have NFO`s . This is what it might be like in Western Norway. Not at all very cat show like :)).
But it stands at least, a bit more croocked though,works and most important . It keeps the eagle away. And also it is such a delightful special magic place on mild and star bright nights :)). And super fine on normal weathery days in the west.
Maximus and Huriel loves catrun fixing.
So they follow happily.
Maximus is a proud uncle at
the moment. But now he wants to
have girlfriends also :).
Still growing. Our large sweet teddy bear.

Mouna and Penelope "working" .
Here Penelope and the last pictures I took of our beloved Hieronymus.
Right before I left for my work in Austria. She looked so very much like her dad from the days she was born. With slight hints also coming from Tabitha.
But she was his favorite baby in the litter, and even let her try to nipple a bit :). So agreat great loss. But luckily we have Penelope. And also Jolandas` mother Fiorenza. Mouna her gorgeous halfsister, is of cours super cool, and her mothers daughter. She is a very much my cat, but very funny and chatty. She is determined and happy minded.
And like a fantastic female version of our old Ludvig.
Mouna is a female teddy bear .
Penelope and Ne Me Quitte Pas playing with Mouna
Fiorenza a great charmer as always. And talks to you in her sweet voice ,
just like her mother Aurora.
Kolya is very much in love with Fiorenza . All the time...
you wish blæææ. Fiorenza thinks he is stupid
Huriel on a favorite spot for a few seconds. Then she was all over speeding with her buddy Penelope, and Kolyas` grandad Haifa can feel the action behind him
Fiorenza cool as always
Fiorenza and her friend and earlier "mother in law " Calamity
Calamity has busy days playing with the speedy Penelope and
Ne Me Quitte Pas. And is stil a mother to the 2 larger " babies" Nike and Ophelia.And she is busy having control over everything we do.
She runs and chats, and sleeps up on us with her friends. This is the large cat playroom up stairs. were she is very busy. Back and fort with toys from one room to the other. Calling and footballing.
Calamity in control of the my working laptop. No wonder it gets lots functional hick ups. At the moment stuck in on 1 window.Here she is listening to early spanish baroque music. She loves it when we wistle. The she sings and sings . LOUDLY. Calamity and Mouna is great fun with some Disney movies, Mozart, The Little Mole and some Abba/ Benny Andersons Orkester. Then they chat and sing along.
Here she has the chair on her own. Usually she must lay down with tummy up on the lap, on top of the sheep flee. Sometimes with both Tabitha and Mouna at the same time. So I have to sitt in funny manners to write.
A normal day inside when stormy and rainy.
It is playing and checking inside and outside , into the catruns, sometimes they look back inside from the outside in the cat run, to run back inside again. In case of more action, or some snack.
So dark dark outside. And the horrible eagle at daytime.
But inside they have great fun " working" / = playing+ spying all over. This is just one of their places. But if we are in a room . They always follow.
Fiorenza is awfully busy chatting and charming. And waits for her steamed chicken brewing on the stove in the cats working room.
So here they have full control over all our actions in this house part :).
Now also from through the windows sitting outside in the new catrun extension. So often they sit an look at each other on each side of the window. Very funny.
And they are just such great company
Here is a large kettle boiling slowly. Full of delicious cat snack.

Thank you for a lovely greeting ,and for loving her so much. She likes attention, and this is one of the ways she knows to get it. SUPER sweet.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MALENE`s GORGEOUS M-Litter, our host litter that was born on Askøy. We hope they all had a great and fun day.
And wish Orpheus, Opus, Olympia and our Ophelia all the best.
Though here in the West, we have had stormy, cold,dark, grey and rainy days and evenings. But one can have fun still.
Our beautiful gorgeous and dear (N) Myrtekransen`s Ophelia has been testing the almost finnished cat run extesion, and found it great even on windy and rainy days. Though a bit windy and dark for good pics. But she also has a new cat climbing " tree " inside, that she loved to see me put together. It was so popular that we`ll have to get one more one the other end of the sofa. It is deep wine reed, so Ophelia jumpt right into the bed box part, and found it to be a great color for her. And today she had her special treats. Tuna, steamed meat and some raw fish. She is such a lovely girl. And with such a lovely temper. Very much like Elena, or her father Speed Igor as well, and Haifa of cours. Pics are not good. Clouded and grey, and a wind coming our way.
But here is the lovely beautiful Ophelia. 1 year to day. Helping out.
Ophelia was outside with her friends, and bellow is the very busy
Penelope, that she loves to play with and " bring up". And they share Calamity`s attention. Ophelia, Nike and Penelope still are allowed to sip together like siblings now and then.
So though a year, she is still Calamity`s adoptive " baby".
Penelope is here there and everywhere. Helping "cleaning up ", bits and pieces in the catrun.
Fiorenza waiting for a jump over the others. Being bored in the rain.

Ready to " help" her mops dog friend with her first mops puppies. Yes, cool panther princess Godiva of course. And Malene and her family have somewhat sleepless nights now and then. Because of (N) Myrtekransen`s Olympia NFO n 23 ( nick named Makrellen), Godivas daughter. Ophelia`s sister. While Ophelia is so sweet, quietly busy and well behaved.Olympia loves to wake up very late, and chase feet or do some climbing in between clothes in the closet. She is raised by her busy panther mum no doubt. Here Malene told me she had been doing all her actions all over, and then appears in bed afterwards sweet as can be, ready to cuddle.
And she looks pretty gorgeous though at 8 months
Godiva waiting for the mops puppies. Daughter Olympia sooo sweet , after raiding.

It might be that it mainly is partly visiting during late autumn and winter. Hopefully.

Tea and coffe time, and then work :).
Now about snowshoes :) . This is our CH (N) Myrtekransen`s Byzants.
She has fury snowshoe feet. With long long hairs coming out between and under her paws. This pics may not show how long and much, since I took the pics while holding her. Not the right angles to show them.But it`ll do until S-E has time for pics. The thing is that this has become more in lenght and abundance, now that she prefers to live her princess life mostly inside going back and forth between her favorite places to relax and to charme. It is not because of trotting a lot on snow we know.
But very fury she is :) .
The bysy baby sitters. Tabitha the mother, Calamity the grandmother and half sister Jolanda. All very dedicated and with the kittens in between them.
Jolanda is still being washed by Calamity and Tabitha her adoptive mother. And Jonada washes both grand mother Calamity and Tabitha. And Tabitha washes them back again. Her daughter Mouna and son Maximus will not visit. Haifa likes to sit on the "bench" above. He always loves his grand children, and lokes to watch them.

(NB. Since Hieronymus page as a grown up male keeps on disappering every now and then. I have made him a second , HIERONYMUS MALE. Hopefully it will keep staying with his grown up pics from now on. His other page is as a kitten and youngster page mostly. And his soon three years old now, and had many pics taken as a mature male. So a new page for him then. Collecting and finding grown up pics of him.)

Magni always comes towards me to cuddle. So he is usually around my legs, and loves to be carried from place to place.
3 good friends. Magni near 9, Haifa at 5, and Maximus 9 months.
Like grandad Haifa, and parts of his grandmother Elenas family, he loves climbing trees. So either Haifa runs up first to impress, or Maximus.

The cats have been safely home while we have been at sea down the west coast to the south coast of Norway, bringing back home a boat to the owners. It was a rough crossing with storm in 3 different types of waves. So the boats owners were very impressed. They would not have done the crossing in this stormy weather. So quite an adventure on silvery wather " mountains". Svein-Erik was the captain and skipper of "his" "ship" of course,and I was the crew again:).
At the docks in Bergen ready to go.
What a harbour. And what a place to have a
small gallery :) or a small fish restaurant :).
Bergen from the wather front again, and a weather
bulding up. So here we go on our way to the North Sea.
Last view of Bergen harbour, and out _in_ to the ocean.
Even seeing a couple of harbour porpoise on the way to "Sletta" Banks.
This is the area of the Sletta Banks. And it is not the horizon. Rather the top of a wave on its way buliding up.
Lots of waves in several sizes from all around at " Sletta".
Warnings over the radio about boats in distress,
and rough seas.
So then we kind of knew how the crossing would turn out. With Jærens Reef still to come further south.
Yes!!! A newly built viking ship in Haugesund.
And then towards and around Jæren`s Reef, with plenty of
huge waves. And a bit of nose diving into the wave valleys leaving no view but the wave itself and salty wather all over, then surfing on the wather mountain tops, and being chased from behind by " growing" waves at full speed. Quite an experience. But this is the rough seas of The North Sea.
So a bit of nose diving pics into the wave valley, and sidewaves enclosing the boat.
My rough camera crashing into the steering panel
On tops, surfing and waves bulding up :).
At Lista and Lindesnes the waves turned into large broad
surfing waves that all the time came and grew up from behind, looking like older tsunami waves just rolling in so that was about keeping on the top, controling speed to keep up and away from being chaught.
Kristiansand South Norway. And the boat`s home and owner. A stormy 10 hours speed boat crossing is over.
The boats own dock, house and home.
Now ready for the summer season :).
Looking out for bandits
They even have fish in Kristiansand aswell.
The Captain on his way to some nice food.
Captain`s (and his crew `s) choice in Kristiansand.
Back to Bergen, by air.Cats waiting.
We could almost feel Jolanda waiting.
Looking for a telephone to use her clewer paws on in order to give direct orders of instant return:).
She was very happy about our homecoming.
* * * *
A quick up date.Since there has been one more birthday, and very busy:).
We have just found wonderful e-mail greetings from our two dear beautiful youngsters.
Beautiful (N) Myrtekransen`s Nikolay NFO ns 23

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR SWEET FUNNY GORGEOUS
DK* ELKINGTON`S HAIFA WONDER NFO ns
He is 5 years today the 10 Th of April
He is out with me and Amalie for a walk and to play.
And he`s waiting for Svein-Erik to bring home his
grilled chicken snack.
Love him so much, he is such a wonderful dear boy and a great charmer. :). Very much like our old Ludvig in type.
* * * * *
Maximus 8 1/2 months very athletic and 5.6 kilos, has taken a sweet friendly interest in Diana at 7 years and nearly 8 months, so they went out together with me to have fun and play. Enjoying the springtime.
Diana is very affectionate towards Maimus and likes him a lot.
So that is so sweet, and they nose kiss all the time and Maximus chats to her :) and she is protective of him.
Lovely sweet funny Slode also had to come along and guard, but mostly playing and chatting of course. He is just SUPER also.
Diana has found her old
soft and safe spot, that includes the sunbeams.
And we all and Diana heard a high screaming note from a large bird`s voice on the other hill side that she did not like, and really reacted to it, murmured deeply and was totally focused. It might have been the eagle. So precations were taken then. I was ready to act all the time, but luckily we just had a very nice trip this time. And I brought them all safely back home. Where Svein-Erik was celebrating the arrival of spring by fireing wood and preparing the barbeque :).
Maximus fooling around and being guarded by us all.
Beautiful Diana realy enjoying to be outside together.
She`ll be 8 years in August, so she knows this area very well.
A quick up date, since we and I have no time for computers this days.

We are so happy about this fantastic and lovely Debbie.
Here she is outside for a walk with her pregnant daughter Kohinoor. And she has been inspecting her birthday gift that I have worked on since before easter started.Lovely weather, so that means outdoor activites :).
A new extesion of the old catrun, having bulit in the old metal cat run into a new larger one. So that they can go in, out and around it. And the plans are to place a small flower hose as a transparente " wind house shelter". And mabye a bit later a last extension that will pas my work place windows. So busy weeks and this is a new start then. Not finished for Debbie, Fiorenza and Isaks birtdays. But its` first part will soon be ready :).
Debbie`s daughter Kohinoor. AND OUR dear dear funny boy Isak inspecting from inside the catrun. Wondering about how it will be.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET SWEET ISAK :).

Springtime is near, so a short field trip.
But in a hurry the cats needed to get inside. The enormous eagle came over the hill on the other side. We alarmed our cats to run in under juniperbushes and towards the house at fullspeed. They knew .Intuitively they underestood our warnings.Went into hiding
,and headed home and into the bushes.We`re so proud of them.
The eagle was hunting above, and no chances to be taken.They need to be guarded during daytime outside.Little trips can turn into action.Hopefully the eagle will be gone forever one day.

I was outside to take some pics of Ophelia today, it was a bit cold so a wool cap was needed. Calamity was so fascinated and stared ad me when I came back inside, until I put it on herself . The she laied still for a long time and loved it, and almost fell a sleep.
She is so sweet.
I tried to take some pics of a very busy beautiful Ophelia 4 months. She was all over of course. So the portrait function was too slow for her. And it was a freezing cold wind. So very short and quick.
Mostly unclear action pics of this little investigator then.
So I`ll se if anyone can be used. Or new wil be taken. And mabye with one of her busy friends. But then it`ll be speedy.
But running, playing and training was great it seems :).

****HIPP HIPP HURRAY*******

Little Ophelia outside with her friends.
A bit windy, but they all had fun back and fort in the catruns.
Here she is with protecting friend Kohinoor.
Ophelia is the great grand daughter of Aurora and Fiorenza is
the daughter of Aurora with Slode.
Fiorenza, Auroras and Slodes daughter again.
And of course Aurora`s great grandson Maximus after her daughter Elenas and Haifas litter. So Maximus and Ophelia are cousins after siblings Gregorius and Godiva our host queen :).
The young MR. Silvertiger himself. Jumps all over, full of power. 5.3 kilos at 7 months.
Our up stairs weight does not go passed that. So I had to go down in the dark with a head lamp to connect the fish weight. It confirmed that he is a bit over 5.3 kilos on the lowest level.

HIPP HIPP HURRAY
The cats have had many birthdays the last days, but the computer has been to work and has had back ups again.
So no up dates until now :).
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR DEAR GORGEOUS HURIEL, AMALIE and SLODE :). Love them so much.
Slode and Amalie have celebrated their birthdays on the

Huriel celebrated her day on the 1 of March, but she enjoyed both Byzants, amlie and Slode`s like her own, so she had many great days :)))).
Beautiful wonderful sweet sweet Slode 4 years now.
And he had great fun on his own birthday and today celebrating
Huriel`s 1 year. Gorgeous he is. Wonderful wonderful.
Slode and our beautiful Amalie share the same birthday on the 28 th of February. Dear lovely Amalie started early. Eating lots of large shrimps on Byzantz birthday the 26 th of February.
She is such a beautiful sweetheart.
Wonderful lovely Amalie 4 years now. She has been celebrating all week. With both different snacks and sleeping ON the arm every night as usual.
Amalie is just wonderful, and such a happy minded sweet kitty girl.
BUT On THIS PHOTODAY IT IS HURIEL`s DAY
Wonderful dear Huriel celebrating her first birthday as a one year old. Such a wonderful charmer also.Having lots of fun and being very active of course.
With all her best friends.
Beautiful Huriel started with tuna, and then steamed fish in stock and butter for supper.And some chicken in between.
So that was to her taste we think :).
AND then she played and played.
Huriels most devoted one is Kolya, he is so very very much in LOVE.
Beautiful Kolya is just one of a kind.So sweet, and always near Huriel.
Kolya trying to impress Huriel, and me. Chatting all the time.

Huriel and Gregorius guarding.
Yes Huriel at full speed up wards to impress Jolanda and Gregorius.
Jolanda and Gregorius are impressed
But time to go inside. Behind the tree, the eagle just passed us in a " SWISH" over the roof. Just like that, fast and silent. I just managed to get a distant photo when I tured away from one of the cats.
This was the second time we`we seen it today.
Out in Svein-Erik `s speed boat we met it by the entrance to the bay. But then we had no camera. So I went for a walk to see if I could catch it on a photo, but nothing. Until we were outside playing. Hopefully it will not stay.

The new camera has many new fun functions.
So testing if it is possible to " catch" Maximus in at least one pic as a normal youngster. He looks crazy always, because he`s so fast and powerful. So the cameras that we have can not capture his lovely looks that fast. I have now understood that the camera must be put on " activ speed" possition to hope for a near normal pic,and that I need more of a fishing rod rather tan a small much to short bamboo play stick. He was simply all over. With dad Gregorius guarding and buddy Slode "not at all helping"- rahter taking Maximus off on a super speedy fun run beond my hopes of photos. So a little bit of all of them. Maximus, daddy Gregorius, best play buddy Slode, and Jolanda trying to impress by advanced climbing in a very very complexe tree of branches:).
Daddy Gregorius guarding, he`ll soon be a daddy again to Kohinoors babies. So he`s a busy male.
And some fun tests of the camera
Yes a tiger has been seen. A silvery one. Maximus.
Still winter in Norway and Bergen
And a sunny day to go on an eagle and dolphin safari :)
at 45 knots...
Our bay behind us and an eagle mountain wall without eagles
The bay entrence towards Bergen
The other way around and Shetland "6 " hours away with our speed in Svein-Eriks water jet fast rescue working boat
The horinzon of the North Sea. Shetland next. Some day at least.....
Back home and sunset in the bay, looking for the eagles, otters or even the old typed viking ( Vild) sheeps that live here.
Svein-Erik had two eagles pasing abowe his window, after a couple of swans.
The bay bathing in sunset light by the gateway to Bergen
And one of the loveliest ways to se Bergen in the evening,is not by car, but by entering shores of the the city in this cool advanced specially designed speed boat made by Svein-Erik with his cross country team. Belonging to the offical part of Norway.
And ready for our super sunset trip to Bergen.
Bergen in the early evening. Fantastic as always
A wonderful sunset trip among rocky isles and with snow white mountains as a backdrop towards Bergen. " Fløyen" with its Funicular climbing the mountain slopes,
can be seen on the other side.
And of cours this coat of arms is very important .
To enter Bergen by boat at sea with a cat in its crest :).
Beautiful Bergen day time. The famous Hanseatic warf
Norways proud World Heritage place at UNESCO Centre.
Always wonderful to take a walk in this very beautiful city.
The old capital of Norway
Boths sides of the famous Fishmarket in Bergen.
Famous for it`s sea food.
back home the cats are in their different play rooms
Ready to "help" decorate with flowers on the wall. And more.
Busy up and down ladders, galleries, shelfs, tables and chairs.
Jolanda always ready for a " helping paw". Nike has placed herself like a princess of the light :).
Nike lightbathing, the others up, down and all around.
Maximus in a quitet moment looking at all the action
Haifa loves to be in the working/ cats playroom with grand daugther Ophelia. She has many new places to get to know.
Mouna and Kohinoor, two very busy friends
Cats with their projects and Jolanda coming up the ladder to look INTO the camera, or most likely try to take it as usual. She had then taken a screwdriver, tape, flowers , + the end of the light.
Lyckily the floors in the working room is in concrete, and they used to drive inn with forklifts and small trucks here ( hence floor marks still). So they can take all the action going on at " work".
So this large room is yet an other cool play room to them: If added the music they like,then we have action :). Afterwards they relax in all the shelfs they have, the chairs and their large
specially made rustique wooden catwalk table.
I still have some more flowers to put up and strings of light.
So they look forward to my next attempt very soon. And their Wiener Walzer music.
We still have " swords" of ice, but no snow in the bay.

Godiva has had her second color judgement,
and is again judged NFO n 09.

And all kittens are without silver as first thought.

Beautiful kitty princess Ophelia, has adopded really well, and has been truly adopted by our cats as a kitty maskot.
Ophelia has been allowed outside in the catrun, ans is very impressed with the cool Nike, Mouna and Maximus. Or the older ones. Nike had to show off a bit of course and Mouna was all over the place.
Ophelia is charmingly white on the tip of her dark nosetip and has a smal black tiny black spot on her white chin :) .
Just some snapshots before the light disappares. Then it is time for some " work" in the evening after a short break :).
The gorgeous O-Litter has been very busy today.

Huge CONGRATULATIONS to Malene and (N) Stølsgarden, with a gorgeous litter due to such great cooperation. And to Milda ma Tilde, beautiful Speed Igor`s breeder in Sweden and the kittens " grandmother" on two legs :).
(N) Myrtekransen`s Orpheus NFO ns will live quite near daddy Speed Igor in the (N) Stølsgarden area, so that is nice. Ophelia was wished for to the same family also, but she is our dear little lookalike girl after Godiva and grandmother Elena,and of course in great combination with gorgeous Speed Igor and our Haifa on the lines as well.
Opus will leave a bit later for Northern Norway, and be a show and breeding male in the North. Olympia is Malene`s brother Lars first Norwegain Forest Cat, and will share the house with her mother Godiva, that is now Ritas cat full time. So they all stay within the family.And Malene herself will wait for one of Godivas grand children for herself a bit later. Most likely after Olympia, but she`s free to choose anyone :).
(N) Myrtekransen`s Ophelia says hello.
Ophelia has become integrated and has new friends, they all floc around her for a warm welcoming.
To half grandaunt Fiorenza it is more important to keep calm in her place in the chair.
O-Litter busy at the vets 12 weeks
Ophelia and Olympia
Opus, Olympia and Orpheus visited the office as well, and did some little mess.
We now might prepare for our two 2013 plans.
* * *
Calamity and Kohinoor are off the pill.
Kohinoor had a reaction to the pill, and was adiviced to date.
Not to put her back on the pill for the show and her last cert for CH.
* * *
Calamity is very fit and we need to neuter some boys now. So we hope for an important classic combination between Calamity and Gregorius if they can manage this time when she runs. We hope for gorgeous kittens in springtime.
If they succed, that is it until early 2014. If not, we`ll make changes in combinations.
Malenes gorgeous and busy KITTENS now will start to move during the weekend.
_ All Malene`s kittens in our Host -Litter on Askøy are booked_
They have parted the transfer wire to the camera, so they can not be imported to the computer. And Malene also have been having an important period that sadly includes a funeral of a dear family member.
So pics of the gorgous O-Litter can not be transfered at the moment. But we`ll se if mobile pics get through.
Mean time nature pics since I `m out with my camera looking for the eagle.
And as background for an up coming working project
We still have snow coming and going, sunny or clouded. Calamity is wondering a bit about that. Tabitha care just a little bit.
My second " field" trip with my camera, looking for the eagle and testing camera functions.
The eagle had been out flying and walking around a bit in a different place I found on an other mountain top.I took pics of the tip of the wings again and it`s foot prints where it had been walking around among the juniper bushes looking for something. Making a little detour before taking off from the ground. Our area inhabitants, the raven couple that lives on the little sumit across the bay, was out guarding or waiting for some " left overs". They are always present when the eagle is out flying.So the eagle was right near or underneath them I think. Having had it`s meal, and then relaxing in a tree. Impossible for me to find anyway. It seems that the eagle prefer the electric wire instalations as part of its outlook place.
The ravens, overlooking the eagles actions in the forest bellow in front of me. They have lived here for many years.
The eagle has landed again, and taken a walk among the bushes. Here are feather tip prints and foot prints and it`s "route".
Many tracks meeting during trekking over a couple of days. Cat, big bird, mouse, hare and human.
This super boat that Svein-Erik brougt from Oslo, would have been cool for Ariel to have sunbathed in. Like in his yellow Ikea sunchair.An Ariel style boat :) .
A fantastic specially designed fast rescue boat designed by Birger Kullmann, made in cooperation with Svein-Erik at his work.
It`s just great, like a floating pice of art design,and at the moment our boat to use, fit for the rough seas of the North Sea.
And to get fish for the cats of course :).
* * * *
Yesterday I almost managed to get my camera ready in position for shots on the huge eagle.
I wanted some early afternoon winter landscape pics, and I had my camera in my pocket.
When suddenly the huge eagle appared again in the corner of my eye.
But it was sitting on top on the instalations of the electric wires. So quietly, before in a silent jump, streching out its huge wingspan 2 m +. Streching over more than half of this large cross beam. Like a gliding plane went for a sudden touch and go dive after a a poor rodent on the ground below.
So I went up on the top and found evidence at least, knowing where it was.Then it had taken the pray with it up into the trees . The mouse, had been taken so quick and easely with one eagles claw. It barely touched the ground with the tips of the enormous wings, the claws and tail tip.
So now I`ll hunt every day with my camera, it will be back we know.
No cats out alone during daylight at the moment. After the tragic incidente with our dear Ariel. Jolanda`s neck marks, losing her collar around them + Hieronymus having been attacked around the waiste and hips.We have talked to the vet, and been adviced to further contact an ornithologist they recomend,and the regional Wildlife Appeal Board again. So extra careful at the moment.
The touch and go scene and my footprint at the lower and to the right, and my print has enlarged due to my movement. So this say a lot about the sice. Feather marks on each side of the snow hidden bush, and its tail by my foot print. The claw mark to the right is were the little mouse was killed before it took off. The feather marks from the tip of the wing is when it was contracting the wings forward to take off. Is larger than the sice of my hand.
Poor little unlucky mouse.
My glowe is a unisize large one, larger than my hand, so this is
This is what wild nature is like, and we are aware of it.
The eagle has no fear of us. On the third day of Christmas, it was gliding on a soft wind right above my head, just looking down at me turning its head, and kept on looking for a hare or a mouse below.Hovering proud from right above when I asked it to leave the area. A real Queen or King with an attitude this one, that seems to think that this is its kingdom. But hopefully it will move.
It has no fear of a car or large vehicle sounds. But one day Il`l get its pic presented on the pages.
