11 weeks and one day: We've had a great Christmas, and tomorrow the kittens are going to the vet for the first time. Time for moving to their own families is getting closer and closer. Rockall is going to live in Norway, and Viking will live on the continent of Europe. I will write more about their new families when they are ready to move.


Georges we have decided to keep in Norway. We haven't decided yet if he's going to live with us or in a host family. He has such great qualities, and I think he'll become a wonderful breeding male. I will not be able to use him myself since he's related to my own females, but there are lots of other NFO princesses that would like to meet him, I hope. Through my years of breeding I've been very grateful to those who has let their males meet my girls. Sometimes it's been very hard to find the perfect match, cause some breeders "own" their lines, and there have been lots of negative answers, which is perfectly ok. Anyway, I believe in cooperation, and now I think it's my turn to have a stud available for others. I plan that Georges will have ca 5 litters before I neuter him. Then I also have a plan to buy a new male for my own girls in the year to come.

Male - Weight 11 weeks and 1 day: 1835 grammes

I love his white tale tip, and I think he's an extremely strong and promising male! He has a wonderful straight profile and a strong chin. His lenghts are great all over, and I think he's becoming more and more stunning.

Rockall - NFO n 09 24


Female - Weight 11 weeks and 1 day: 1638 grammes

She's a very, very social and charming girl already, and she loves it when I come to say hello. What I really love a lot about her is that she has the greatest sense of humour, and she's very playful. I know that her family will love her a lot. She will get a new name when she moves, and she already has got many nicknames from me. Occasionally I call her "Komlå", "Rocka", "Krølle", "Tullå" eller "Tullemor".

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 11 weeks and 1 day: 1976 grammes

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

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.
