Nature: A rosebud in my Mother’s garden. All ready to explode into a full-blown bloom. And the Sun gently caressing it…
Cats: One-Eye is one of the feral cats who live around my Mother’s abode. So far she’s survived 3 harsh winters, at least 3 litters, 2 cullings of the local feral feline population (by local vets because of an infectious disease), the local fox population, the odd hunter and the infection that took her eye when she was but a kitling. She is in the prime of her life, despite the maimed eye, and knows that when there are humans about there is food to be had. She does remain aloof though and may not be approached.
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.
