TT #5: Freyja

Thirteen things about Freyja
(see previous post)

Freyja

  • Freyja is named after the Norse goddess of love and fertility who was famous for her great beauty. The cat was sacred to her, she drove in a chariot drawn by cats.
  • Her name means “Lady”.
  • She was born on July 4th. That's an educated guess.
  • Her fur has several colours: white, creme, salmon pink and various shades of grey.
  • She was left behind in a cardboard box. Luckily she was found in time and brought to the pet shelter.
  • The vet, pet shelter and I all think she is a full breed Balinese, but we can't be sure.
  • She has a kink in her tail. This probably happened when she was still in the womb. It doesn’t cause her any pain or inconvenience.
  • She eats Royal Canin Babycat (until she is 4 months old, then she'll switch over to Royal Canin Kitten).
  • She has blue eyes and it looks like they are going to stay thay way.
  • She is our fifth kitten, the last one was Ukkie (born 1996). Our other cats were older when we got them.
  • She weighs approximately 780 grams.
  • She is almost 20 cm tall (front, from paw to point of ear).
  • She is very curious and playful.

  37. she is sooo cute - i remember when my mum bought home astro (our latest kitty) he was ssoooo small now he is huge (7.8kg last week). and smudge (other kitty) who is now nearly 9 years old and still a kitten at heart (she is only about 4kgs). the fun that cats bring is that they decide who they like and what they will do. so if she is a balinese - then she may just live up to her name. thx for stopping by again.

  42. Thanks for your prayers and sympathy and thanks too for your happy greetings. I'll be back by Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday.
    My sister-in-law was finally put to rest. Cremation took place yesterday. It was a very painful moment for all of us as she was loved by the family. However, when one loves someone, she/he must also learn how to let go.
    I'll be back Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday. As of now, my head seems to be floating on air. I can't seem to find my brains anywhere yet.

  43. Oooooh, Freyja is gorgeous, you are so lucky.
    You are right, though, that kittens (and I think cats in general) make great anti-depressants.
    Have a wonderful week. Enjoy the kitty cuddles.
    Take care, MEow
