My beautiful 14 1/2 year old girl Appliqué has been diagnosed with diabetes. She had lost weight and was drinking and using the litter tray a lot, so I took her to the vet to be checked out.

So now - she has a daily injection of insulin in the morning and at night. I must admit I was worried about having to give a cat an injection, but as the needle is so fine, she doesn't seem to notice it.

It took a little while to get the dose right, but it probably is now and already she is looking and most likely feeling, very much better.

Westrikatt Kess AKA Gateaux

Wednesday was a very sad day, as my beautiful Gateaux passed away.

All who knew him, will remember his fantastic manner and every cat or kitten we have ever had, held him in the highest esteem.

He was a 'Mummy's Boy' and had an indulged and happy life here and was both an ambassador and legend in our wonderful breed. He was a few weeks short of his 17th birthday.

3/3/2003 - 11/12/2019


May 2019

Gateaux is now 16 years and 3 months old. Sadly he has kidney disease and has lost a lot of weight.

However, he is on a fantastic, newish, life long drug, to control and extend his life and he is really doing well.

Gat is a happy, contented old boy and much loved by us all.

8th and 9th Sept 2018

Tilly and Sweetie attended their first International cat show, held at a venue near Coventry. It was a big experience for them both as Sweetie had only been with me a week and was still settling in. Luckily Tilly was happy to have a new friend to play with and they both settled down well together in the hotel we stayed in.

The cats did exceptionally well and Sweetie was BIV, nominated for best in show both days and Tilly got her adult certificates and was nominated on one of the days

It was a super introduction to showing and like me, their breeders were very proud of them.

We are very pleased to welcome Old Possum's Tillicoultry (Tilly) to the Nordligdrom Cattery. This young lady is 16 weeks old and still making herself known to the other cats living here.

I first spoke to Judith in January 2017, about having a female kitten from her and we were waiting for the right one to come along. She very kindly brought her from Scotland to London by train and we are hugely grateful to her for entrusting Tilly to us.
