Hallelujah!! One of Kalahari’s testicles turned up! I don’t know if this is a harbinger of good news or not, but it encouraged me to give him a little more time, so I canceled his neuter surgery today. We’ll see how it goes. In the mean time he’s becoming a seriously handsome dude! A HUNK. A Babe Magnet!! Kalahari Falcon now weighs in at about 9.5 lbs and is a Big Boy, as shaded silvers go. He out weighs his dad now by 2.5 lbs! … AND his personality is just to DIE FOR! He is an incredibly sweet boy … even if I often suspect that he may have a Labrador hidden somewhere in his pedigree when he acts like a clumsy, wet puppy. In any case, that’s the news on Kalahari. Here he is, hot off the press, photos taken this morning:
Spring is here! The kitties and I are enjoying the nice weather to the max. Both pregnant girls are doing very nicely so far, and are allowed in the enclosure to enjoy the sun. I know that many breeders will confine or even cage their queens leading up to delivery. I don’t know how right or wrong this may be. Probably it’s simply a matter of peace of mind for the breeder. For me, my peace of mind is greater if I feel that they are enjoying life as befits their species. I also believe that the exercise and fresh air is beneficial. Closer to delivery I keep a careful eye on them.
More photos from today. These are of Sequoia who is turning into a beauty. SHE’S FADING!! … I think? … but very pretty. At five months, she is as big as Sirocco, so I think she’s going to be fairly good sized. A very solid little girl!
