My name is Ann-Kristin and for those of you that don’t know I am Marc’s sister. For those of you that speak German you can also read Zelda’s posts on “Katzenworld Deutschland“. But don’t worry there will be English versions on here. 🙂
Our little darling Zelda moved in on the 17th November 2014. At just nine weeks she was a fluffy bundle and actually too small to leave her family. Unluckily for her she was abandoned by her mother and so needed to be re-homed. Even though I’ve always wanted a cat, I’ve never had the chance.
But one day I heard about this cute kitten who needed a new home and tried everything to persuade my partner to take her in. This involved a long weekend full of arguments and tearful, begging requests. Eventually, a resolute “No“ became a “Yes“. We used what was left of the weekend to make our home safe for a kitten.
The following morning Zelda’s “God mother“, Christina, helped me with last minute shopping for kitten items before collecting Zelda. The kitten was so tiny and pretty with her white whiskers and her cute melancholic eyes. My friend Katharina was waiting for me at our home to help me with all the stuff. She is, of course, another of Zeldas many aunts. At home Zelda took some time to come out of the cat carrier and we watched how she explored her new home. It was not long before Zelda drew closer to me and started to purring loudly. She even began to react to my voice and her name.
In the evening when my partner came home from work his first question was “where is the kitten?“ At that moment she came out next to the sofa and he fell in love with her. And Zelda likes her new „daddy“ just as much and was soon lying on his lap and purring.
Zelda settled in so quickly and she loves to play with us, as much she loves to sleep next to our heads. But she is not shy about waking us up with her soft paws on our cheeks early in the morning.
Sometimes she can be a little brat.
A brat we nonetheless love.
