Meet Loetje

Loetje



Our very good friends from The Netherlands, Katja, Fafnir and Snuitje have "adopted" a new kitty. Here is what Auntie Katja wrote:

The picture shows Loetje (formerly known as Kareltje) whom I had neutered last friday. He was given 'a clean bill of health' by the vet (FIV/FeLV tested and negative !), had him vaccinated also because I hoped he would accept 'shelter' inside when it gets colder again (in a few months)....... Well, that went differently as planned: the night before and after his operation I had him locked in in the bathroom, but the next day I put him outside again (it's beautiful weather) and he refused to leave, sat the whole day meowing in front of my window.... Of course I fed and petted him, but left him outside during the night. The same the next day and the day after. He only left the garden for a few short walks and in the night he slept under/in a car because tuesday his coat was full of engine oil again...so yesterday after work I let him in again and he stayed the night. He is lying in my lap at the moment :) Faffie doesn't mind much but Snuitje is very scared of him...so I feel a bit guilty towards her. But I have the feeling it's going ro work out okay. Though I don't plan to leave them together when I'm not there yet: today I had the day off, but tomorrow when I leave for work he has to stay outside for the day.


We are purraying that Loetje gets to become a permanent member of their family!

  1. Good luck to Loetje! He looks like a very nice kitty, and I think he has already chosen where he wants to live. Your friends are nice to help him out.

    Loetje is lying in my lap as I'm writing this, but it's going to be more difficult than I thought. He has attacked Snuitje twice now. Because she is so scared she tries to run, but I guess this is the worst she could do, he then just jumps on her and they fight.... And all the growling and crying scares Faffie so much that after the fights (of course I rescue Snuitje, but maybe I shouldn't interfere) he just growls, hisses and screams at Loetje too, and even Snuitje and Faffie are scared of eachother just after the fights... :-(

  12. Loetje has already decided he's an indoor cat. Hope the rest of the furries decide that too.
