Smack in the middle of the woods in our local park is this lovely chapel. It is a bit distorted in the picture, due to the lens I used, but I like it. It sort of shows surprised defiance. But I wonder… to whom ?
The close-up of Hrimnir’s head has its own story but I so much liked the texture of his pelt in this picture I just had to show it. Hrimnir had just returned from surgery (he had his *ahem*-ectomy) and was still dazed and woozy. It made for a restful pose.
Of course, he’s doing fine now.
Just to remind you, we have 9 main players in this game (besides some extras):
("wherewolf" crazy/sleepy cat) - black with a little bit of white, très couch-potato
Bean Sidhe WOAH-He’s-Big-!
(a.k.a. Banshee "wailing ghost" = mythical Irish ghost/typical outcry of any visitor) - white and orange tabby part Maine Coon, trying to grow larger than the kitchen counter is high
Hrimnir de WC-plonzer, Protteke
("Shrouded with Frost" = mythical Norse giant/the toilet-plunger/little fart) - white, grey and cream tabby part Norwegian Forestcat, slowly turning into a very solid bloke indeed
("Norse Goddess of love, beauty and fertility/Stomach on Legs") - female grey tabby gastropod, mommy of Isegrim, tries to convince us that she is eternally starving and needs to be fed NOW
("Grey Helmet/very busy critter") - iron grey with faint tabby markings, son of Freya, "dondersteen" could also be interpreted as "stone that falls very very hard" because as I'm typing this he's 5 years old and weighing 5.5 kilos...
("Stong Man" in Japanese/"Rotten One" or "Bad One") possibly half-brother of Gorgor, ginger shorthair tabby with white socks and breast, the most wild of the two youngsters and prone to attack when angry; known to ambush those bigger and fiercer than himself
A feral young tomcat who dwells in the House of Chaos solely for eats and sleeps. Faster than his shadow hence his name.
Chuck sNorris van Droomwereld
Chuck van Droomwereld ("of Dreamworld") is his pedigree name, the rest refers to a well-known martial arts actor and "snor" actually means moustache. This is a very silent Maine Coon with majestical whiskers who's never heard but quite well seen - fleeing at least. He should aspire more to be like his namesake !!
Chateau Beau van Spinnepoes aka Beauregard
"Castle Beauty of Purpuss" is his pedigree name but I like his new name better (regard means both looking and esteem). He's gorgeous and he knows it. He also has the cutest high-pitched mew which sounds strange coming from such a big beast. And he's still growing.
Grumpy Man, The Mistress, Bouncing Psycho, The Strong Woman of Flanders, The Lord of Toys, The Cleaning Scourge, The Man in White, and the occasional hapless visitor.
