WCB # 106 - My Little Ray of Sunshine Sweet as Sugar

My dearest little flying squirrel of a cat - a behaviour inherited from her father Clemens -, creamier than cream, sweeter than sweet, cuter than cute, cuddlesome Eulalia, is actually turning 9 years old today!

Once again, how time flies, in a pretty scary non-pleasant way, it feels like only a few years since this little darling of a kitty saw the daylight in my study. Along with her four brothers and sisters. All cream. Quite the litter. She was then the third linear descendent from my own breeding. The first all crème de la crème-litter - and I was soo very happy!

Her paternal grandmother is Aurora, and just like her, she was a charmer and a poser from a very early age. Just as sweet as a sugar crumb and if not sweet enough to eat, sweet enough to cuddle to outright exhaustion…

She’s been one of the apples of my eye and a real showstopper through many a cat-shows over the years. She was one of the main reasons I became Second Best Shorthair breeder in Sweden 1998 and Best British Shorthair Breeder in Sweden in 1999. Lots of water under the bridge since then, after that things have sort of spiralled downwards - or rather I’d become *a bit* tired of the not-very-sportsman-like sport of cat showing…

Some months ago Eulalia was well and truly retired from the show-ring getting her neuter title of GIP - the second highest neuter-title in FIFe/Sweden - added to her title EC - the highest title in FIFe/Sweden - and a bit of icing on the cake.

Now she’s completely enjoying her well earned leisure as my very personal hairstylist - she nibbles very well indeed - and showing her racy flying catsquirrel-extraordinaire-qualities better than ever. Being the cuddly, cobby Tudor-cat - ie always having her little, short tail in an erect, and in her case, happy position - only she can be…

And yes, today she’s celebrating her birthday with getting new food-bowls plus summer-coaster (see pic on top), later we’ll have an intimate dinner just the two of us and then she’ll get some nice gourmet-kitty delight that she doesn’t have to share with anybody but her fantastic self.

She's of course also one of the gift-recievers of this amazing water bowl for garden use. Even if today's is a rather gloomy, rainy day and both humans and felines are much more inclined to snuggle up in the sofa than enjoying the garden-life. Eulalia though, being a little ray of sunshine as always!

Her new toy she happened to get the other day, by chance, when the handyman forget a little bag with screws. She was just so excited over that silly little thing and rolled around with that like a little hairball on speed, ears all back and a crazy, eager look on her furface. The best gifts are for free! Even though she won't be able to play with this particular toy under any other circumstances than supervisioned of course...

She is actually far too busy with getting her fur in the right festive condition, being cuddled and uttering little expectant, bleating meows to have the time posing for pictures on this special day. So unfortunately these are the best I could get. Anyway -

Happy 9th birthday, darling, and many more to come!!
