So little time to type while splitting my attention between two rambunctious Savannah kittens!
We picked up BK#2 - now Layla al-Hedima on Friday. She is adorable, and FAT! Total porker of a little kitten. though little might be the wrong term. She is 9 weeks old and 2.8lbs, which has her being a half pound heavier than Siada was at 10.5 weeks. Hedima means handmaiden (since Siada is the Princess), but with her little tank body, she might make a better body guard.
She is very friendly, but also jumpy. She poofs her tail when at everything, including when she is happy (something our F1 did regularly). She bounces rather than runs, and actually has a pretty stocky little bullddog body, rather than her cousin's sleek build. I think that once quarantine is over, they should love to race and romp (this baby seems to do nothing but hop around).
Actually, there is a good bit about her that reminds me of Nimar. She is hard as heck to catch (but still social, and is a purrmonster). Siada is all about stealth and opportune strikes, while this little bruiser just slams into everything.
I think we are in for a wild ride!
This post is to announce Bitty Kitton #2! Yes, Siada is getting a sibling (well, technically it is a cousin...). Siada is active and LOVES to play and cuddle, and she is very sad that the big cats at home want less than nothing to do with her antics. We have chosen a little marbled F3 Savannah, also from Select Exotics, that shares the same Serval Great-Grandfather with Siada. I so very much look forward to welcoming the new little girl next weekend!
