We are a complete family once again! Our kittens went to their forever homes and we prepared to go bring our baby home. Our family is devoted and we want what is best for our kiddos, so one of us left Portland on Friday early afternoon and embarked to Warsaw, Poland, where Edyta would meet us on Sunday evening with Ekaterina! They both came home safe and sound yesterday evening. Ekaterina is beautiful, soft as silk, and such a lady! She is a cuddle bug and so sweet and brave!
Ekaterina's birth name is Beatrycze, both names very royal in our opinion; she sleeps, eats and plays, and eats and sleeps some more, all while purring! :) we are settling her in and it seems Valentina is eager to meet her! Valentina is very maternal to any and all breathing creatures! Ekaterina is very active when she is awake so having her hold still for a photo is proving to be challenging!
We started to write these news back on January 9th about our wobbling mamas, Xana and Valentina... and then life kept happening, growing in their tummies, and 8 beautiful babies were born! Xana's 4 toddlers are now 5 weeks old and Valentina's are 4 weeks and 4 days old! We couldn't be prouder of these girls for taking on motherhood with all their being!
On another note, we have teamed up with a wonderful and well-established cattery Koci Gaj from Poland and we are thrilled and eagerly awaiting the new addition to our family! Our family can't wait to go to Poland to bring her home! Thank you, Edyta, for such a gorgeous girl!

Our adventures continue...
A very quick update!
Loki continues to grow steadily. Xana and Valentina are right behind him. And Katiuska is growing exponentially! Our three beautiful girls are blossoming into gentle and playful ladies with very distinct and different personalities. Xana has grown into a little fur ball of sweetness! She comes to you to be brushed and loved on with BOTH hands (one hand will not do for her). Valentina races to the bathroom sink whenever she hears the water running. She still enjoys sticking her hands in their water bowl to wash herself. Katiuska is a little mischievous angel. She has long and beautiful dark eyelashes that project such an innocence look regardless of what she's up to with her siblings. She loves to run, jump, jump, jump, and run some more! Loki is developing lots of patience with this little one as Katiuska likes to run and jump on him!
Our family has grown! We brought Katiuska home from Eastern Europe two weeks ago and she has since fully integrated herself into the clan. It took her very little time to make this house her home. She has quickly grown in speed, weight and size. She's currently the fastest among the kittens and loves to jump hurdles over her siblings. She loves to play with everyone's tails and toes. She's too fast to capture a clear picture of her! Katiuska is the first to arrive and the last to finish at mealtimes. She loves to sleep without interruptions and will purr if woken up, so she chooses the bathroom under the window where the rays of sun fall on her on these hot summer days. She's darker now, whether from sunbathing or because she's a seal point, and more beautiful each day!
