For my part, We have one Turkish Van, and 2 DSH (Molly is silver tabby, mixed breed, Paige is torti with no kind of pedigree.)
Long time, no chat.
We are long overdue for a good one. We kinda' got messed up by Rita, but we and our "Evacucats" are all home now enjoying the beautiful weather.
Do you have any new photos of Ghibli you can share with us? Only fair!
Molly is indeed a character. Her full name is GC ALEDO GALADRIEL OF CARAVANSERAI, "Molly" as her house-name. Ann thinks "Molly" fits her better than her fancy "show-off-purebred" name. Of course being a "Swimming Cat" now in the Brown family we think that "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" is really a much better match.
(I typed "The Unspeakable Molly Brown" just then, in error. Obviously a Freudian slip.)
You will have noticed that Molly's registered name, Galadriel, comes from The Lord of the Rings
, as does our Hobbit Sam's handle. This betrays that they have the same Dad, GC WISHNWHISKER LORD-OF-THE-RINGS, DM. Molly's mom is GC CARAVANSERAI TALICO-OF-BORG, DM.
Molly does have a bit more color than her step-brother, Samwise, on her shoulder, face, and a charming "Mark of Allah" on her derriere. Of course the Turkish Van breed standard approves up to 20% of color contrasting the white, and she is well within that.
Here, for your delectation and amusement, are five photos of Molly:One
Obviously Molly was not the fabulous show cat that Sam, or GC, GP CARAVANSERAI SAMWISE, was, but hating every second in the ring she finally granded and we were able to bring her to her new home on the beach, just in time to evacuate because of Rita just two days later. She did real well in her travels, and we are so proud of her, Samwise and Miss Kitty.
BTW, I don't know whether we showed you Sam's new fancy photos. If not, here they are:One
And just for fun, here is "Busted
," Sam and Molly caught in the act of upsetting their toy box. A few moments later their toys were spread all around the house.
My apologies to our other gentle readers for my lengthy post, but we had a lot of nostalgia to relive, and only a Turkish Van lover can understand that there is no limit to the tales to be told.
Now let us see Ghibli's latest.
All the very best, from Jim, Ann, Samwise, Molly and Miss Kitty, on a Texas beach
(Sorry, Miss Kitty
. Here you are.)
