Cataleya and Tinka
Left in the apartment, but quickly freed
In the course of an apartment evacuation, two cats were discovered: Cataleya and Tinka. At first glance, the two cats seemed to be healthy. However, the two animals were probably not alone for too long in the dirty and filthy apartment.
Cataleyaa Carthusian cat and Tinka, a black and white cat, were given a wonderful new forever home: Gut Aiderbichl Maria Schmolln. Administrator Rosi was happy about the two new arrivals. Unfortunately, the health check revealed that Tinka was suffering from FIP, wateraccumulations in the abdomen and also had problems with the hips showed. Unfortunately, Tinka could not enjoy her new home and her many friends for long and passed away. Cataleya misses her friend, but is already making new friends with the many conspecifics and the keepers.
Cataleya, a carthusian cat, is a feast for the eyes in terms of character and appearance
Cataleya means "Orchid." The Carthusian cat is one of the oldest bred pedigree cats, which was already mentioned in the Middle Ages. The original long-haired cats mated with short-haired cats and at some point the breed spread in France. In the course of time, the Carthusian cat no longer had long hair, but it became shorter and shorter, until the typical gray short-haired cat of today was created.
The Carthusian cat is calm and gentle in character and seeks closeness to humans. She is cuddly, loves to be stroked and loves her life with pleasure. The extremely peace-loving Carthusian cat gets along excellently with other animal co-inhabitants in a household, she meets friendly and patiently children too.
How is Cataleya doing in Maria Schmolln?
Cataleya is medium sized, has a round head with full cheeks and a small, narrow muzzle. The medium sized ears sit close together on her head and nothing escapes her.
Like every cat, Cataleya loves to be outdoors, but she also likes the cat house in Maria Schmolln. As an outdoor cat, she can easily keep herself busy and she virtually celebrates her walks across the meadows at Gut Aiderbichl Maria Schmolln. She is calm and serene and does not necessarily need to be entertained. At the age of seven, Cataleya loves to lie on the lap of a keeper or, if there is no keeper around, she loves to lie on the warm wooden bench in front of the house and let herself be pampered by the sun's rays.
Even though Cataleya, as a carthusian, has a very thick, short coat, she doesn't take any more grooming than any other cat. The plush fur should be brushed regularly, because Cataleya just enjoys it so much.
