Nog's Brother Egg

Nog's brother Egg is still looking for his forever home. He is a very cheeky chap and we met him when we went to collect Nog. If you think you can offer this adorable cheeky chap a place to scamp and loads of love please contact Claire on 01775 841078 or see Egg on the Overear American Curl website.

Even though Nog has only been with us for a short time we have learnt what a super and lovely breed the American Curl is and when we met his brother Egg he was just as sweet as Nog and very playful and cuddly. Every home deserves an Egglet!

We think we are very lucky to have a Noglet in our home :-)

Nog Update

Well Nog has been here for just over 2 weeks and it seems like he has always been here. He has met my mum and dad and he definitely has a new fan! My dad thinks he is a "Great little fella"

At the moment I am trying to write this with Nog's help! Well it is his blog I suppose he wants editorial rights :-)

Nog has made a partner in mischief with Mojo, the photo below was taken on Saturday morning after a morning of fun and loads of mischief!

Nog has a squeak and when he wants something he squeaks! He also squeaks when he sees me first thing in the morning and whenever I enter a room Nog is in. It is very sweet. Nog also loves to purr, he even purrs in his sleep which is funny but a little bit odd, but then that's Nog!

On Saturday night Nog showed us how good he is at climbing curtains, which got a frown off Andy. I said "Mojo must have shown him that!" Andy wasn't convinced LOL

So Nog is settling in well and he definitely brings a bit of Nog fun to our home everyday...

So how did Nog come to join our family. It started a couple of years ago when I first saw Claire at a show with Disney. Disney did brilliantly at the shows and I was fascinated by her sweet look and nature. Disney then had her first litter and we saw the kittens at a TICA show, I really wanted one but unfortunately it was when Kahlan was poorly and the timing just seemed wrong.

Then last year I contacted Claire about the possibility of adopting our first American Curl. I was initially hoping for a girl but then Nog came a long and his sweet face stole my heart. I contacted Claire and arranged to visit to meet Nog and the rest of the gang but I couldn't wait and I emailed Claire to see if we could adopt Nog and Claire said yes :-)

So last Saturday we went to Claire and Stefan's there we met Nog and his lovely family. We then brought Nog home and this photo was taken his first night here.

Now a week later it seems like he has always been here! He has captured my heart and for our first introduction to the American Curl breed he is a fantastic ambassador!

Nog loves to purr and he has a big purr! We are used to big purrs with the Siberians but Nog does love to show off his purr! And his character is brilliant, he loves a cuddle and to play. He has made friends with Fudge, well he headbutts Fudge and he has made friends with Mojo. They play and run around and just get up to kitten mischief!

This is one of Mojo and Nog on the sofa this morning after some play fighting, it was time for a wash and a sleep.

Nog is already showing off his intelligence as he has learnt how to make the worm toy wiggle, he puts his paw on it and pulls the tail. It is great to watch and it is definitely his favourite toy.

I am so happy to have Nog, or Noggy or Nogs or even Noglet he knows all his names. These past few months have been up and down and we have had sad news recently with the passing of Calix and Mercury. But Nog has helped in his own little way and he loves to be carried around which was one of Kahlan's favourite pastimes too.

I am hoping to keep this blog updated with Nog news and if you think you would like to be owned by an American Curl please visit Claire's website as Nog's brother Egg is still looking for his forever home and when we met him and having had Nog for a week they really are a truly lovely breed.

Thank you Claire and Stefan for letting Nog join our home :-)
