Nightmare's are born in our sleeping-room - for our peace of mind:-) !
"Siesta" ... Geordie with
and a few babies on our bed.
For the mothers there is a roomy baby box for raising their
babies during their first month (made from untreated natural wood -
see photo on the right) which measures: length: 39.37 inches (1.00
metre)/depth: 23 inches (0.60 metre)/height: 15 inches (0.40 metre).
box for the first four
weeks of life. If my cats have babies, I'm sitting
many hours together with them in this box - so
the babies will be very people oriented.
Playpen for one week
(between the fourth and fifth
week of life)
the fourth week the babies can climb
independently out of the baby box. At this point of time we place them
self-made playpen. Here they can play, climb and to be

the rest of the house, except the children´s bedrooms and our
they chase after the
adult cats and of course the dog. Running up and down the stairs of our
two storey house gives them plenty of exercise! Unfortunately the few
they go to their new homes are always much too short!
babies are doubly inoculated and treated
regularly, preventively against endoparasites/ectoparasites, before
leave us at the age of 14 to 16 weeks. An earlier seperation from their
mother could cause irreparable damage- concerning the social behavior
and immune system - in a young cat and is

adult cats have the use a roomy cat-balcony. In the morning at
o'clock the sparrows stir in their nest under the roof and 78 inches
(two metre) below there are the Sparrow's Nightmares, hoping in
vain that one of the feathered "friends" will join them! :-))). By
evening they will made plentiful "spoil" in the form of
moths and other crawly creatures - also a hunting success.
