My Cat Lynxie - Most beutiful cat in the world

19th July 2011
11 am
I had a deal with the owner of a cat that I will take her cat because she can´t care for it anymore. But after she said I could have it I have not heard from her since. I was going to get it the day after I come back from Gothla, which was yesterday. Last chance to be on my way to fetch the cat was at 11. Because it is a 2 hour drive to the cat, and I had booked the plane and everyting for the cat and I that evening. Still no answer from the owner, so I give up. I look for cats on the internet and find a few kittens I like.

12 am
I talk to the owner of Main Coon kittens whom I can buy from the same day if I want.

15 pm
I drive to look at the kittens and fall hard for the girl they have. She looks So much like a lynx! Se is a bit shy but curious. I cant resist, so I have to get her!

We arrive back to the apartment in Oslo. Lynxie has only mjaued a few times during the car ride. We let her out from the cage in the apartment, and she runs straight under the bed and stays there until we lure her out again because we have to go to the airport. She shows no interest in food or sandbox.

We put her inside the cage with some food to go to the airport. She is calm and looks to be sleeping half the time. She mjaus a few times, but seems to be ok when I say her name and try to calm her.

We arrive to her new home. I show her the sandbox straight away, and she goes off to explore the house. She hides under a bed again and stays there until I get her from there and show her the sandbox again. She must be having to use the sandbox! She hasnt been since we got her! She explores the livingroom a bit but gets scared of her own reflexion in a mirrot and hides under the sofa.

23 pm
Lynxie is still under the sofa. We figure she feels safe there and let her stay there. Maybe she will eat and use the sandbox at night while we are sleeping.

7 am
I wake up and Lynxie is stil under the sofa. Doesn´t seem to have used the sandbox nor ate any food. I get worried and take her out from under the couch and take her to the bedroom and close the door. She gets her own little hiding place, and I place her food and sandbox in the bedroom. This makes her feel much comfortable and when she sees no dangers she goes straight to the food to eat. I am so relievied! After that she uses the sandbox! :D

8 am
Lynxie is playing with her toys!

9 am
Lynxie sleeps next to us in bed.

11 am
Lynxie did not allow anyone to pet her before. She had stayed two days in the apartment where we picked her up, and they hadn´t had any luck with petting her, she had only stayed under the sofa and didnt let anyone touch her. But now she is purring and I get my first cuddles!

12 am
Lynxie learns not to walk on the computer keyboard. She is loving her new toys I got from Leicester! :D

21st of July

23 pm
After one and a half day with intensive playing and eating and sleeping in the bedroom, she suddenly decides to explore the rest of the apartment. She was most scared of the sounds from the stairs, but now she walked straight to the stairs, livingroom and kitchen. I was amazed and happy! :D Soon we can move the litter box and food out of the bedroom. In the time she spent in the bedroom we had seen her wild side as well. she will make an excellent hunter, she jumped from one wall to another in there!

  1. your cat it really nice.
    i'm glad she likes the new toys. :D

  2. Yes she is so cute I cant believe it! And smart too! :D She liked most of the things. But sctually the mouse island- The one with 3 mouses on she didnt pay any attention to. I think I can just throw it away. Her favorite one is the stick with a mouse in the and of the thread. You know witch i mean? She broke it already...Have to get another one.

  3. Beautiful Cat!! Spending quality play time together now will give her a better chance to learn to travel well. Keep opening her world.
    I've found that the best kitty toy is a ball of tin foil, packed hard and too big to swallow. Cats can keep the ball rollin' or you can flick it off for the chase. I've even had kittens pick it up like a dog and come back for more! Good luck!

  4. Tin foil, really?
    I am getting to know my kitten better now. She is shy, but has a wild side to her. Just like me. I have never trained a kitten to do anything before, so I hope I will succees in training her to be calm inside the cage for travelling, and maybe even just me carrying her wherever we go. Thank for tips! :D
