Today, exactly two years ago, Frutsel came to live with us! Though I knew our house was a little small for three kitties, I just couldn't say no to her. My neighbor-friend had found her and the very moment I saw Frutsel I was in love. We placed a gazillion ads for 'kitten found' but no one claimed her.
After batting my eyelashes to Joris he too gave in and Frutsel became part of our little family. I tried to look up a translation for her name, the dictionary says 'Frills' :). Though our house indeed is a little too small for three kitties, especially with Frutsel used to living outside and sometimes getting really bored, I'm very happy with our decision to take her in for she has given us much joy and laughter ever since :)!
Since we don't know her birthday, we use today to celebrate. We had a little photoshoot in the bedroom, she usually isn't allowed there so she was all over the place (I really missed autofocus on my lens) and tonight the kitties are getting a special meal ;).
A couple of funny things about Frutsel (which I probably already told about a hundred times): She's missing her upper canines, this causes her to have a very funny expression now and then and her tongue easily sticks out of her mouth and sometimes stays out ;). Luckily she has enough teeth left to chew her food, since she's obsessed with it. Though the kitties all get the same amount of food, Frutsel is the only one who's a little too chubby, it makes her look adorable though. She has the highest meow I've ever heard on a (grown up) cat, which is very cute (unless she's giving her 6.00 am concert), and she lays down in the weirdest positions I've ever seen, sometimes I think she's doing yoga. We love her and hope to have her with us for many years to come!
