Bertha proves it! I am a crazy catlady! A lots and lots pics

Last December my breederīs placement queen Lara gave birth to 5 beautifull bengal kittens and one of them stayed with her mum, two uncles and us me and my fiance. And I became officially The Crazy CatLady. At least my mother-in-law-to-be may think so. One cat is normal, two is for others company, third is a symptom and fourth is something serious . Now Bertha is 7 months old and just everybody loves her.

I must explain the concept "breederīs placement", it is difficult to explain to cat people from other countries, I donīt know if there are proper term in English to it. Most of breeders here have only few cats at home and they tend to keep their retired breeding cats as pets with them. Because they naturally need new queens many places promising girls (sometimes boys, if they find people crazy enough to have full males in their homes ) to trusted homes, where they also have their kittens. Sometimes queens do go to their breeders to have kittens too. My Lara is that kind of breederīs placement queen. And if anyone knows a proper term to that breederīs placement, please, educate me .And now her daughter Bertha is my first own queen-to-b. And I can go to the real point, showing you my princes, SiruCats Esperanza, Bertha.

First, some teasing pics of the whole litter.

You are no where near being a crazy cat lady. Anyone would open their home to a gorgeous queen-to-be like Bertha.

I think I'm in love... I thought your explanation of "placement queens" was very understandable. I actually think that is a very nice concept for breeding animals. ...and if you're a crazy-cat-lady with four...what am *I* with EIGHT? ...and I have had as many as a dozen!

I am happy with my four,so you must be douple happy with your eight

And I too think this concept is good. I have pretty girl for my own breeding and lots of good experience about cat labor, pregnancy, choosing sires and everything with help of an experienced breeder. I got a practical course of cat breeding, wonderful friend and trustworthy mentor. Practice is very common here with cats and dogs. Naturally, all cases wonīt go so rosy, but thatīs how it goes when people are misunderstanding each others.
