It is no longer a mystery that Freyja always bears "red" boys and "tortoiseshell" girls. Our genetics-minded son explained that she has the RED gene on her X chromosome. (We should have known.) Fonn's kittens will be unpredictable!
Kittens will live in MN, NJ, FL and AK!
Fyrste is loved and held by "Vikings" for four days!
(9/2018) The Norsk Hostfest of Minot, ND, is the largest annual Scandinavian festival in North America. An email of enquiry resulted in seven-month-old Fyrste being invited for the four days of the September 2018 Hostfest, with BJ along to make sure that people understood just how very NORWEGIAN he is! (See History and Legends on Home Page.) Fyrste melted into the arms of admirers from children to armed and helmeted "Vikings." He thrived on the attention while BJ reconnected with friends and family. The bonus was having a booth near to that of BJ's favorite HS teacher, Carolyn Sanderson Heller, lover of music and students.

'Tis I, I humbly reply. "
