Carmen is from the same litter as Cajza. Carmen is also mother to our second
litter, Sunnygirl's B-litter, and to our fourth
litter, Sunnygirl's D-litter.
Carmen knows how to enjoy life. She will find the most
comfortable places to rest and will make sure she has them to herself. She
is a nice little lady that does not move unnecessarily or get into
situations where she will get dirty.
One of the favourite positions is to be carried around
on my arm. If we had one of those walking reins for babies Carmen would
enjoy to be carried in it. By sitting there she can observe what happens
without any effort and at the same time she can get caressed by me which she
Carmen also enjoys to rest in my arms like a small
baby when I am working with my PC or read documents. She demands to get
constantly petted. My work is though not so effective with her in my arms.
Sometimes she is satisfied with lying close to me on the table and then it
is a bit easier to work.
she is not allowed to sit on my arm she enjoys to rest on a sheepskin in an
armchair. It is both nice to lie on and there is a special feeling to the
nose and paws that she enjoys. She will almost go into trance when she steps
on the sheepskin. If nothing else is available she will rest in the best
cat-bed we have.
Carmens special moment with me is to come early in the
morning and get into my bed and rest on my arm. There she will sleep for a
couple of hours if we have time. She wakes me on and off to get petted.
Carmen purrs just as her sister Cajza but not as loud.
Her "talk" is also with a much more silent voice. If there is some other
noise in the room you can hardly hear her.
When the other cats start to play she will mostly sit
and watch them. Sometimes she will also participate for a short while in the
play. Compared with the other cats she is not as playful as them.
Carmen has also a thick and long fur coat, even if it
is not as thick as Cajza's. Like Cajza she enjoys to get help to comb
through the fur coat. Even in the summer she carries this big fur coat and
if the weather is hot she will try to find cool places to rest. Sometimes
she lies on her back with all the legs in the air to allow some cooling of
When Sunnyboy gives her special attention she will
tell him very definitely that she is not interested with a loud hiss. Of
course the reaction is totally different if she is in her period then it is
almost so that Sunnyboy need to find some protection from her. Carmen has
mated with Sunnyboy and on the 9th of February 2006 she gave birth to our
second litter consisting of 5 kittens (S*Sunnygirl's
B-litter). Her second litter (S*Sunnygirl's
D-litter), this time also with Sunnyboy, she got on the 27th of February
2007. Also this time 5 kittens.
