Cloud’s adventures in Adelaide

Cloud (Ozspots Venus) is one of the sweetest cats I’ve ever met, bright-eyed and bold and curious. She’s also fully grown now – and at a year and a half old she’s had a couple’ve heat cycles already. She’s not a very loud caller, but she clearly knows what she wants, and what she wants is a tomcat. Right now please.

Unfortunately George (Ozspots Pennyroyal) isn’t showing any interest as yet. He’s still growing (he still hasn’t completely grown into his paws, and he’s almost 6 kg now!) and he’s still too much of a kitten to know what to do with a calling queen. He knows something’s going on, but not exactly what to do about it. Cloud was getting quite frustrated with him. Hopefully he’ll work it out by next spring; all the advice we’ve had has been that slow maturing boys often make the best stud cats.

In the meantime, though, Cloud really needed some attention, so we’ve sent her on a little adventure to meet a gentleman by the name of Ozspots Golden Eagle. On Wednesday morning, we got up especially early (even before the chickens, or the neighbour’s rooster) so we could take our beloved Cloud  to the airport. She’s off to Adelaide for a few weeks to visit Golden Eagle there. She’s having her first date today, and I think it’s going well so far.

With any luck, by the end of Feb she’ll be happy and satisfied, back home with kittens on the way.

updates

I’ve been terrible about putting up any news, but it’s been a slow year. Our kittens have grown up into sweet natured, playful, friendly cats. Cloud (Venus) has learned to open doors, although not the external doors or the door to the pantry! George (Pennyroyal) taught Cloud and our little rescue cat, Prism, how to use the cat flap in the new house. Everyone has been pretty chilled.

We’ve missed a few shows, unfortunately, due to both coming down with the flu. Twice in one year! That’ll teach me for not getting flu shots. So on that front, there’s no news at all.

Cloud is now old enough to think about kittens, and we’re hoping for a litter in early 2016. We should see some tawny (black spotted) and black silver babies, and maybe some other colours too – we’re not sure yet if Cloud carries the genes for chocolate or for dilute colour, but it’s likely that she does. If so, we might see chocolate, chocolate silver, lilac, lilac silver, or even blue or blue silver kittens as well. Watch this space.

George has been ill the last couple’ve weeks, but he’s recovering well and the vets are happy with his progress. We’re keeping a close eye on him, but he seems completely relaxed and happy to be home.

Relaxing

Ozspots Venus

Our beautiful girl arrived a couple’ve weeks before Christmas, and she’s the sweetest, most adorable kitty ever in the history of kitties. I may be biased, it’s true. Venus started purring at us before we even got her home, and was trying to rub her face on us through the pet carrier in the car on the way back from the airport.

Since then she’s explored the house, the cat run, and (on leash) the garden, discovered the fascination of watching chickens through the window, and met dozens of our friends who wanted to come and see her – and purred at all of them. We’ve discovered that she absolutely loves playing with people’s hair, but she’s such a gentle cutie that she always does it with her claws sheathed.

All in all, we absolutely adore her. She is a credit to Nola and to the OzCatz breeding lines.We’re looking forward to meeting her future paramour, Ozspots Pennyroyal, who’ll be arriving in a few weeks.

Welcome to the Sunchaser Ocicats website! We’re not quite open for business yet, but we’re looking forward to the arrival of our first Queen, Ozspots Venus (currently almost 8 weeks old, and still with her mother), and our first Stud.
