3 weeks:

So what has happened with the kittens the last week? Their world has indeed got bigger since they got their own playpen in the kitchen. It's great fun to watch them in their first attempts to play with each other. For the time being Georges is the one who's most interested in getting all the milk he can, Rockall has been around and explored what sorrounds the penpal, while Viking is more into practising for the Championship in "Mr. Charming". They're all sooooo wonderful!!!!

I love his white tale tip, and I think he's an extremely strong and promising male!

Vikingbanken is a fishing bank west of Bergen and east of the Shetland Islands, outside the Norwegian Trench.

She's a very, very social and charming girl already, and she loves it when I come to say hello.

Rockall is an uninhabited remote granite islet in the North Atlantic Ocean situated at the following rough distances from the closest large islands: 430 km (270 miles) north-west of Ireland, 460 km (290 miles) west of Great Britain and 700 km (440 miles) south of Iceland. It is within the United Kingdom's exclusive economic zone. The nearest permanently inhabited place is the island of North Uist in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, 370 km (230 miles) to the east. The Rockall Bank is situated around this area. (Wikipedia)






Georges- NFO n 09

Male - Weight 3 weeks: 525 grammes

Georges is my elegant and very, very promising male. I love the way he's "dressed", wearing a tuxedo as he does.

Georges Bank is a large elevated area of the sea floor between Cape Cod, Massachusetts (USA), and Cape Sable Island, Nova Scotia (Canada). It separates the Gulf of Maine from the Atlantic Ocean. The origin of its name is obscure. The 1610 Velasco map, prepared for King James I of England, used the name "S. Georges Banck", a common practice when the name of the English patron saint, St. George, was sprinkled around the English-colonized world. By the 1850s, it was known as simply as Georges Bank.

This is the fishing bank where my father spent a lot of time when he went sea scallop fishing and also fishing flounders in the late fifties and the early sixties. I often heard this name mentioned through my childhood.
