Do you want to meet Rusken

Christmas Eve the house was set up side down.
My two children was playing Santa Claus
and gave me a very special christmasgift.

Meet our new family member

Rusken


His name is Nordlændingens Hercules, but we are going to call him Rusken. Frida cat thinks he is a very funny guy and he thinks she is a very fury black thing. It was so scary when he came out of his box and he found his place under the couch.

Finally when we got him out from there, he stayed the rest of the evening/night in our bathroom so he could relax and settle down. And he loves his basket with a nice warm blanket.

Now it seems that Frida cat and Rusken is going to accept eachother. We just have to give them some time. And Rusken is very happy when someone wants to play with him. He loves hairbands.

So now you have met our new family member, and I guess you will see more of him on my blog.
And so far not so much sewing on me this Christmas. I guess you understand why.

Update: I already got a lot of questions what kind of cat Rusken is. He is an Abyssinian cat. You can read more about this breed here. I have had two abyssinian cats long time ago, and they are very very special cats. So I look forward to learn to know Rusken.

And perhaps you know understand the meaning of my blogname Abyquilt. It is a combination of ABY (abyssinian) and QUILT :)


Saying for today:

There are few things in life
more heartwarming
than to be welcomed by a cat.

Rusken is so beautiful! Maybe Frida won't like him so soon... Females doesn't aceept easily other cats, but in the end everything will be ok!

Hey May Britt! Your new little family member is a cutey ... and Freda cat is being very patient by the look of it. :0) I had often wondered how you'd decided on 'Abyquilt' for your blog name ... now it all becomes clear! Bet you're having fun hiding all your sewing supplies to your new 'baby' doesn't decide they're for playing with! May be bring you hours of entertainment and years of joy! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

Rusken is a lovely kitty. Ah, but my heart belongs to black cats.

Anne Marieke said...

What a beautiful cat and what a great present your children gave you.

Well done Frida for accepting Rusken.

Solveig said...

Helledussan så lekker! Regner med at disse to sjarmisene blir gode venner. Elsker katter og hadde alltid ei i hus helt til jeg begynte å jobbe offshore og ungene utflytta.
Ønsker deg ei fortsatt trivelig romjul og masse kos med pusene.

LeKaQuilt said...

Åååååså heldig du og Frida er! Virkelig sjarmerende liten fyr og jeg gleder meg til å bli kjent med Rusken :o)

Satu said...

Fenix (and Satu) are welcoming Rusken to the wild, WILD quilting world;) Hope you are becoming friends with Frida easily.

mandapanda said...
