{Our Felines are 8 Today!}

Hard to imagine that it is already 8 years ago today, that they got born... Meanwhile we lost Sacha, one of the girls who got hit by a car. Sad day. Also their Mamita Spicy, disappeared and we still think she got kidnapped. 
Such a bliss when all 5 of our rescued Spicy from Acapulco, Mexico, got born healthy...
Mamita Spicy was such a sweet cat-mommy!
Baby Sacha; the one that got killed by car on June 17, 2013...
Feisty Tiggy-Tiger, the tiny one...
Tiggy-Tiger
Tiggy-Tiger
Bandido with Mamita Spicy...
Spooky with his Chick-fil-A toy...
Yes, they ALL fit inside this oak magazine rack! They were so CLOSE...
Sacha loved to romp with her brothers Spooky and Bandido...
All 5 napping on top of a box...
Mamita came to treat them to a Milk-Shake...
All 5 at their human Mami's feet...
Bonding...
Napping together...
Their human Papi build them a play box...
Learning together...
7 weeks old and still enjoying Milk Shakes from Mamita + cuddles!
Almost 2 months old here and still hanging out together all the time!
All the girls in a basket...
Sacha (L) is being missed but all others are still happy and healthy.
Too bad we never found their Mamita Spicy back!

      Thank you very much; guess they had a happy day even though it rained in the morning. They all were so happy when we got home on Saturday morning 2:00 AM, from 6 days Arizona!
      Yes, those that we lost are in our heart forever and the ones we have are very much loved.

  5. Wat leuk dat je hele nest hebt kunnen houden en wat jammer dat de moeder is verdwenen. Dat blijft maar knagen wat er met haar gebeurt is he. Een kat door een aanrijding verliezen is zo vreselijk, het is mij twee keer overkomen, eentje leefde nog maar was verlamd aan zijn achterpoten en heb ik moeten laten inslapen en een andere was meteen dood, die had ik net een jaar daarvoor uit het asiel gehaald. Het zijn net kinderen, je blijft er maar mee bezig.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Ja het was een verrassing dat Spicy zwanger was maar met liefde hebben we ze allemaal geadopteerd. Haar plotselinge verdwijning is een raadsel wat erg veel verdriet heeft veroorzaakt. Ze hadden haar al willen meebrengen een jaar eerder maar toen had ze 3 kittens en kon het gewoon niet... Vanwege inenting tegen Rabies wat 3 maanden vóór invoer gebeurd moet zijn. Toen waren ze nog niet eens geboren! Het was zó'n mooi dier, zó sierlijk en slank en heel zijdig. Een van haar zoons heeft ook zo'n zijdig haar, meer dan de rest.
      Ja, onze eerste kat verloren we door aanrijding (té hard rijden!) voor Pieter's ogen... Nooit gestopt of wat dan ook; gewoon doorgereden. Er was niets aan haar te zien, alleen bloed uit haar mond, maar wel dood. De andere werd dood door de overbuurman, in een zak thuisgebracht. Ook nog eigenlijk mooi gaaf maar met één klap kennelijk dood. Onze eerste was ook pas 1-½ jaar oud; té jong.
      Ja, het zijn zeker net kinderen en je neemt ook volledige verantwoordelijkheid voor hun welzijn. Genieten jullie maar van Sofietje!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  6. Voor jullie mooi om te hebben zo'n grote katten familie, voor mij leuk om te zien.
    Manlief wil geen kat in huis en ik geen hond, dus dat is dan heel duidelijk.

    Geniet van de beestenboel en fijne dag,
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, op zo'n enorm landgoed als wij hebben hier is zo'n poezen-gezin erg goed op zijn plaats. Als je in een woning met kleine tuin leeft wordt het plaatje al heel anders en ook qua klimaat maakt het nogal wat uit.
      Zonder dieren kunnen wij beiden niet leven; ze geven zoveel liefde en zijn vaak loyaler dan sommige mensen.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  7. What adorable kittens. I'm also a cat lover, we had 2 "adopted" females who each gave birth to 5 kittens, 7 1/2 years ago. Some were adopted and we kept 3 of the kittens. Sadly both mothers have died, one in March last year and the other in February this year.

    1. Dearest Sami,
      So we both share the same love for these loyal and sweet furbabies! How sad for loosing both mothers by death, well, it is in a way more acceptable than having one just disappear... The unknown is heart breaking.
      Sending you hugs,

    1. Beste Willy,
      Ja, inderdaad erg aaibaar en ook heel lief spul. We genieten er elke dag van en ze zijn erg happy hier. Ja, er zijn er al 3 aangereden hier, eentje uit het asiel die we maar een maand of drie hadden. En de ontvoerde moeder poes, dat was heel verdrietig want ze was oh zo lief.
      Fijne Paasperiode nog en liefs,

  11. Meine liebe Mariette,
    es ist immer schlimm, wenn man ein Tier verliert. Aber es ist wirklich schön, dass so viele
    bei ihren menschlichen Eltern sind.
    Du hast ganz wunderschöne fotos eingestellt. Katzenkinder sind immer besonders süß.
    Leider bleiben sie nicht immer klein.
    Einen schönen Resttag wünscht dir

    1. Liebe Irmi,
      Ja, schlimm ist es schon um ein liebes Tier zu verlieren. Nur mit dem Wissen das sie es bei uns gut hatten und noch haben; das hilft.
      Oh, diese wunderschöne Zeit wo es solche spielende und kleine Katzenkinder sind geht oh so schnell vorbei. Es blieben uns nur noch die Bilder.
      Auch noch weiter eine schöne Karwoche und alles Liebe.
      Mariette

  12. Oh where has Spicy been I wonder. I always thought that cats remember to come back home especially if they have kittens. Maybe she was really kidnapped? I feel sorry that they aren't complete now. How nice that they grew up together used to cuddling esch other even after 8 years :)

    1. Dearest Mari,
      We can only keep wondering about Spicy, she never came back and we placed her photo in the Newspaper, had pamphlets everywhere with her photo and reward being offered. All in vain and it really caused us a lot of grief.
      Yes, seeing them still being together that is very special, they only lost one of their sisters but she had six happy years at least.
      Hugs to you,
      Mariette

      Thank you and yes, they definitely were darling as little kitties; one could eat them alive!
      They all are quite happy here and live very independently, with their cat-sitter while we're gone and that works perfect.
      Happy week to you as well.

  14. They are all so beautiful. I'm a bit of a crazy cat lady, myself, married to a crazy cat gentleman (is there such a thing??). He always says, "What difference does one more make?" I'm so sorry to hear about Sacha, and how stunning was Mamita Spicy. I do think she got kidnapped, too. Someone must have fallen in love w/her gorgeous face. Can't blame them.

    The pictures were just wonderful, Mariette.

    Thank you for sharing your feline family with us.

    Big bisous, ma chère,
    M-T

  17. Ach liebe Mariette, es ist so traurig, wenn wir unsere geliebten Tiere verlieren -
    leider sind wir oft machtlos und müssen loslassen, was wir lieben -
    sie war eine wunderschöne Mama -
    ich kann dich gut verstehen, als unsere 1. Katze damals im Wohnzimmer lag, überfahren
    von einem Rüpel... es tat so weh - sehr lange hab ich gebraucht, um dies zu verarbeiten -
    ich drück dich -

    liebe Grüße - Ruth

    1. Liebe Ruth,
      Es stimmt das wir oft loslassen sollen da wir wirklich machtlos da stehen.
      Ja genau, uns ere 1. Katze wurde auch so von einem Rüpel überfahren, nie angehalten, einfach futsch und Pieter sah es! Es dauert lange ja weil man ja richtig trauert und eben noch mehr wenn wir sie so verlieren müssen.
      Es ist fein um so gleichdenkende, Tierliebend Freundinnen im Blog zu treffen.
      Ganz liebe Grüsse,
