07/12/13: In the last week I have had some very sad news, but then there was some good news. Simba recently developed a very bad infection, and the animal hospital was unable to save him. This is very bad news because he was only about two and a half years old and was a lovely boy. His family decided that brother Leo needed a new friend quickly, and have now given a home to lovely Zamora from Pechina. She is a very special, completely loveable little girl, also 2, and already her parents, and I hope Leo, love her. I am so sorry that Simba’s life was short but he was very loved and very happy in his home in Germany, and I am sure that he would now be happy for Zamora, and that his brother and best friend has a new friend to play with and to stop him from being lonely. Long life Leo and little Zamora.

06/03/12: Today I received another lovely photo of Simba and Leo in their new home!
15/02/12: You will hopefully all have seen the beautiful Lancelot on this blog and read his story, but one part of his life in Spain you have yet to know. Just after he was castrated as a young man, he managed to father 4 beautiful kittens with a nervous female at Montse’s who had yet to be sterilised! Of course this wasn’t planned, and a lot of rescue homes would have aborted the kittens, but Montse kept them, and Lancelot has 4 beautiful sons. None have quite his looks, and his red colouring only appears as hints in some of their coats but they are definitely his. Clarence and Flypi have longer hair, but not quite like their father’s, while Simba and Leo are more short haired. Their mother is a beautiful tabbie girl called Rani, and it seems that her genes are strong. I think however that Lancelot would be very proud of his now quite big boys. He has 4 strapping sons, who probably HAVE inherited some of the big Main Coon part of Lancelot’s genes!
All 4 are now re-homed in Germany. Leo and Simba travelled on the last transport in January, and were only about a week in their foster home before they were adopted, whilst Clarence and Flypi travelled to their forever home in December, in time for Christmas! Enjoy all the photos from Germany and some earlier ones of the boys in Spain. These handsome cats really are Montse’s babies!
First Flypi & Clarence, the BIG long-haired boys!
AND here are Leo & Simba, now called Toni & Basti!
AND finally some of their younger photos taken in Spain:
