Holly is a sister of Koen, who now lives with me. Her real name is Charming Coon's Holly Berry, and she's born on the 25th of December, 1996. That's right, a Christmas baby. She's a big girl with a mind of her own. She loves to sleep next to the computer when I'm working there, preferably with her head on the keyboard.
Catching flies and spiders is also high up on her list of fun things to do.
Both Koen and Holly came from the Charming Coon's cattery.
Niels' real name is Niels Inger de Twentenaar. He's a Norwegian Forest Cat, born on the 2nd of March, 1991.
Niels took quite a bit of time adjusting to my appartment, because he was leaving the home he had lived in for seven years. By now he has survived moving-shock quite well.
Niels is mostly quite content with sleeping, especially on a lap. Boxes, chairs, and the couch (see picture) will do nicely as well, though.
He still does a lot of 'chasing the toy' as well, though. If possible, in the middle of the night, while making lots of noise. Chasing a crumbled piece of paper appears to make the most amount of noise, and is therefore the favorit item to chase.
Koen's real name is Charming Coon's Firelight. He's a Maine Coon, born on the 25th of December, 1996. Yes, he is a Christmas baby. Unfortunately he passed away in November 1998 due to some clots in his urine tract.
At the time of the picture he wasn't overly interested in what was happening, which resulted in this less-than-flattering shot. It does show of his gorgeous and long tail, though.
Koen's favorite passtime is play with a small ball he has. When left alone with it for some time, he can easily destroy the house. His favorite is to play retriever, and fetch the ball whenever it is thrown.
One of his favorite sleeping places is shown in the picture. From this vantage point he can easily oversee me working on the computer, and still take a nap every now and then.
