Cats III

1. October 2007

The page  "Cats II"  has been very large. So now we are extending with a new page "Cats III" which starts on the 1st of October 2007. 

Here is Minus lying at the fence yawning. 

 


Much has happened since we got the two small kittens on the 1st of May 2005. Here you can see how they have changed during the 2 1/2 years. 

15. December 2007

Arrgh, it has been so long since I have posted new pictures of the cats. I have been working at my "Scrap booking freebies" most of the time, so I haven't really had time to maintain this page. But anyhow, both cats are well. They have been fighting with other cats a lot all through the fall, with subsequently visits to the vet. So far they have only suffered from minor scratches, luckily no serious wounds. At the end we had to remove their food when we are away from the house, to prevent other cats from going into the house and eating their food. Too bad it has to be this way, but it was necessary.  



Here is Jugi in the garden. Finally a day with sunshine and blue sky. If you look carefully, you can see parts  of the new daffodils, which are already on the way. 
Felix did not want to be photographed today, so here is some snowberries from the garden instead. 

8. February 2008

The two "kittens" are still going strong, and they are looking forward to playing in the garden during springtime. 

Felix has been fighting a lot with other cats during winter, and even Minus had to go to the vet once after a fight.

Unfortunately we have still have problems with stray cats going into our house. They pee in the house, and eat our cat food, so since Christmas the cat food is now put aside, while we are out. Hope that the cats will eventually learn to "defend" their house and prevent other cats from coming in.


8. March 2008 

Here above is the crazy cat - Minus - and below his more clever brother Felix. They are sitting on the top of a cherry three, which has been cut down. We tried to take a picture of them together, but it is really difficult.

3. May

The neighbor is outside working, and the cats are listening to what he is doing. Finally I succeeded in taking a picture of them together! Looking forward to my husband is coming home in a few days, he is much better taking photographs than me!

So here is my picture for my "May desktop wallpaper" - cute isn't it ?? Go to the "Friday freebie" page to download. 

Minus is lurking behind the fence. Minus has his own little nest in the bushes in the garden, where he likes to take a nap.

Minus is resting on the terrace. He is really too big now (even though a lot of it is fur) - he weighs 8,2 kilo! His brother is more slim and only weighs 6,9 kilo. 

Felix found this basket besides the laundry, and took a nap....
Minus and Felix on the terrace. Felix got into a fight with a stray cat some weeks ago, and had to go to the vet AGAIN! The wound was looking particularly nasty this time, so he had to get yet another shot of antibiotics.

29. May 2008

The cats are waiting for their new "look-out-shelves" to be built, and in the meantime they use our garden bench to keep proper lookout.
The shelves are finished, and already in use! There are four different shelves in different heights on both sides of the fence. Really nice for cats who likes to be "op top of things". 

12. June 2008

So here is the guy that 10 years ago didn't really like cats, and was a bit afraid of their claws! 


Svenning, this time carrying Minus around in the garden. No doubt that here is one guy really loving his two cats! 

Minus on the lawn with a lilac flower.            Felix keeping lookout on one of the new shelves. 
20. September 2008

I can't believe that it has several months since my last post, so here are some September photos of Minus and Felix. They are both still going strong, as you can see. Below you can see Felix sitting on one of the shelves Svenning has made for the cats, they really love sitting there watching the whole garden. The next picture is Minus keeping lookout on a rainy day, you can see he is all wet at his back.
 


23. January 2009

It has been so long since I last posted a picture of one of the cats, the freebies seems to take all my time, and I forget all the rest of the pages - LOL. But here is a new picture at last. Svenning took the picture of Minus in the garden a few days ago, he is sooooo cute isn't he???

31. January 2009

Felix got a nasty abscess on his left back side after a fight with another cat approx. a week ago. So of course we had to go to the vet AGAIN, and they removed the inflammation and put in a drain tube. Today the drain tube has been removed and Felix is feeling good again. Hopefully he will stop fighting and relax for a little while, making our vet bills a bit cheaper!  

26. April 2009

It has been so long since I last posted some pictures of the cats, but here are some brand new ones. Above Felix is keeping lookout for birds and mice in the garden. The cats really enjoy the nice spring weather. A few weeks ago my sister was visiting from Sweden, and  both cats slept with her in the bed - LOL. They are so loving and sweet, and I am sure they could recognize my sister from her last visit.

26. April 2009

Felix and Minus enjoys a sunny spring day outside in the garden. Felix is sharpening his claws on the bird house pole. 

26. April 2009

Felix is looking for birds and butterflies. Minus is sitting on one of the shelves we made last year, the yellow stuff behind him is a forsythia bush.

7. May 2009

So of course I had to try http://www.photofunia.com with pictures of the cats too - LOL, so here they are both of them. 

10. May 2009

Felix has been fighting again, so I have to take him to the vet tomorrow. He has a nasty wound and a boil on his belly, and I guess he need some antibiotics. 

16. May 2009

So just 3 days after our last visit to the vet, Minus got sick as well, so once again we had to visit the vet. Minus had a large boil on his back - so obviously he has been fighting like his brother too. Hopefully both cats will keep a low profile for a while, otherwise it will be a very expensive month - LOL. Svenning took this picture today, isn't it lovely? I think I can nearly smell the flowers.........

2. June 2009

Svenning took this picture of Minus with his new camera, doesn't he look cute? Weather has been warm and sunny and most nights he sleeps outside, but now and then he comes in to have a snack or two - LOL. 

2. June 2009 

Minus is keeping lookout for dogs passing the road..... 

28. August 2009

It has been so long since I posted some pictures of the cats, so here is Felix lying on one of the shelves
in the garden. Summer has been both sunny and rainy this year, but the cats seems to have enjoyed every bit of it anyhow. They like to stay out all night and sleep under the bushes, only coming inside the house to get some food now and then.

28. August 2009

Svenning and Minus is playing with a piece of grass. They can play for hours together, and usually Minus goes inside the house and calls for Svenning to come out and play with him - LOL.

BTW I forgot to tell you about this site http://www.simonscat.com/. It is really funny (be sure to watch the movies, if you are a cat lover like me - LOL). 

28. August 2009

Minus is hiding under a tree because of the rainy weather. He is so busy keeping lookout for those birds, even when it is pouring down. We have had a hawk visiting our garden lately, and it chased several minor birds against our windows and killed them. So after a short while the cats found out that the big bang on the windows meant that there were birds outside and they eagerly rushed to the door to get "part of the action" - LOL. 

28. August 2009

Finally a nice picture of Felix. He usually doesn't like to be taken pictures of, but Svenning caught him off guard for just a second, and took this picture.

28. August 2009

Both cats are keeping lookout. The surely love those shelves we made for them, a perfect spot to overlook the garden.....

10. October 2009

Autumn in just around the corner. Falling leaves and Halloween. Luckily we have our own black Halloween cats to spook around the house. This is Felix having a nap outside in the garden.........

10. October 2009

This picture was taken just seconds before the cats run off to hunt a black bird in the garden.......... 

22. May 2010

It has been ages since I posted some new pictures, but here are some new shots Svenning took today. 

The cats are doing very well, they caught both a mouse and a bird last week and chased the mouse under my washing machine and made such a fuzz, that I had to get up at 06.00 in the morning to get rid of it. Minus attacked a roll of toilet paper as well, and managed to spread it all over the bathroom, while I was having a shower. Felix had his first visit to the vet this year (he had a sore paw, probably from a fight with another cat), but he was okay after having some antibiotics. They have had an occasional flea too, so they have been treated for that as well. Felix is really skinny this summer, as he he is keeping busy chasing other cats away and hunting for birds and mice. Minus is a bit more lazy, and he also eats almost anything that comes his way (including the stuff caught by Felix), so he is not exactly skinny - LOL. Just now both Minus and Felix are enjoying the nice summer weather. In the pictures above Minus is playing with a grass straw, and Felix is keeping lookout.
 

22. May 2010

It is nice just to relax in the garden, and even though they sometimes fight, these two brothers are usually good friends.

22. May 2010

After a long winter the grass is now growing like crazy, and Felix enjoys having a nap in the garden.

22. May 2010

Minus like to stay in the shadow to keep cool in the summer time.
 
22. May 2010

Please don't disturb me by taking photos - I am keeping lookout for birds in the garden!

22. May 2010

Felix and Svenning are playing with some twigs. 

23. May 2010 

Felix was just awake after taking a nap, when Svenning caught him just in the right moment showing all those dangerous teeth. It looks so funny when cats are yawning, they get this totally crazy look in their face.

23. May 2010 

Felix is hiding between the bushes looking out for birds. 

30. May 2010 

Minus is looking at Svenning, who took this photo with his 400 mm Leica telelens.

24. June 2010. 

Minus is now fully grown, and he is finally "The king of the street". Okay, some might think that he is fat, but my husband says that he is just a "Danish muscle cat" - LOL.
 

24. June 2010. 

Felix is relaxing after dinner. Both cats like to have a nap at the terrace during summertime. 

5. July 2010

A very simple animation made with two pictures of Minus yawning. 

27. November 2010

The first snow arrived on 24th of November this year, and here is Felix playing in the snow.

27. November 2010

Felix was not too happy about getting cold paws. So soon after this picture was taken, he was back inside the house stretching out on the floor in front of the wood burning stove! 

1. July 2011

It has been ages since I last posted some photos of the cats, so here is the first one I took a few days ago. Both cats are doing fine and are enjoying the summer.


1. July 2011

This is Felix relaxing in the garden. He loves to keep lookout on his little shelf under the tree.

1. July 2011

I got this small tent at the pet shop when buying catfood, and Felix immediately wanted to try it out in the garden. How about that, a cat on camping - LOL.

keeping sharp lookout for intruders in the garden. He is so cute, isn't he?

1. July 2011

Felix is having a nap on his shelf, but I disturbed him by taking this picture. He usually turns his head away from the camera, as he hates to be photograped.

8. August 2011

What a sad day indeed. Yesterday our cat Felix was suddenly feeling ill and having trouble breathing. It turned out that he had caught a deadly virus, and after having visited the vet, we had to put him asleep. Such a devastating day for all of us. Luckily we still have Minus left, we were just not prepared for such a chock. Above is one of the last photos of Felix.

26. february 2012

It has been a while since I have posted pictures of the cats, and I still can't think about Felix without getting tears in my eyes. He was such a dear friend, and I still miss him a lot.

Fortunately Minus is doing fine on his own, and we just spoil him silly. Here he is on the first day of spring in the garden, watching me planting grape hyacinths and mini daffodils. He prefers to be outside, so I am sure he is looking forward to spring, just a much as I do.
