Gemma is visiting Baikal

Gemma had started her heat saturday morning the 8th of october and we quickly made the arrangement for Gemma to visit Baikal during the following day. We started our journey to Ibbenbüren, Germany sunday morning at 7 o’clock. We made few stops but the traffic was heavy so we did not arrive until 15.30 at Gaby’s.

Gemma was very timed following the long journey in the car and so she was not in the best of moods. Baikal did however find her interesting and was very patiently with her. He was the true gentleman as he in the beginning left her alone but all the time stayed close by. Gradually, Gemma started to relax and show some interest in Baikal. By the end of the day they had started to show real interest in each other. The mating has had a very promising start and we hope to be able to pick Gemma up on the following sunday.

It was great to finally meet Gaby after all the mail corespondency that we have had in order to arrange the mating of Gemma. Gaby has a lot of experience with breeding golden kitten, and have at the moment the most gorgeous three golden kittens from Bailkal. Among many thing we talked a lot of the golden color and how to judge the very young kittens. I learned a lot from Gaby about breeding, the golden color and what to be aware of when the kittens come.

I know Gemma is in good hands with Gaby. The family and I do however already miss her and finds it odd that she does not come running when entering the house or keeps us company during the daily routines.
