Schlafmütz (night cap, means “sleepyhead”) was born on 23rd September 2003. She gave birth to 5 kittens in 2004. Pastell, Farbexplosion, Izabelle, and 2 others which we gave away fast. Pastell vanished before he was a year old. It is likely, that he got shot or driven over by a car. But in my dreams he only found another family and produced kittens there and Miniputz is one of his offspring.
Schlafmütz was sterilized afterwards.
When she was young she was sleeping all the time, but nowadays she’s often outside. She doesn’t like puppies or kittens. She comes to get her food and sleeps often on the table in the living room, where I made a bed for her with a shawl that is impregnated with Nepeta. It’s a french product to attrack cats.
When she was younger she slept in my bed. Now little Dariusz (son of Miniputz) is sleeping there.
She likes to sit on the wooden roof at the bathroom, crying, so I got to rescue her. And she likes to get carried around.
Izabelle was driven over by a car in May 2008.
When she was a kitten we had tried to give her away. To a woman that had already a tomcat. That went totally wrong. The male cat didn’t like Izabelle and fought against her, she was scared and stayed outside and was crying. So I went there and took her back home. She never really got over that shock. First she wasn’t clean in the house, that went better, but then she stayed outside for days. We have 5 stables here and 2 towers and Izabelle often stayed in one of the towers. She was jealous on Farbexplosion, maybe because Farbexplosion had been allowed to stay with us. She was fighting with Farbexplosion.
That’s why I didn’t give any of Miniputz’s kittens to people that already had a cat.
Like the other kittens of Schlafmütz Farbexplosion was born on 22nd June 2004. She was a very shy kitten and still is quite shy, but nice. When she doesn’t like someone or something, she goes out to the woodstack and makes her home there. She doesn’t like Miniputz too much and she doesn’t like the Shih Tzu of the bosses when she tries to play with her.
She likes Rudi and Schlafmütz. As usuall I am her feedingslave, she rubs herself on the banister when she comes inside, and yells at me. Sometimes she sleeps next to Schlafmütz on a sofa or the living room table. Or she sleeps on a chair. She loves when Miniputz sleeps outside, but that happened only once till now.
