consists of mother (Solveig)
and daughter (Linda). We got our
cattery name approved in march -10 and we got our first choice. When
I was a kid my father used to call me Linda Virrivinda and it
my mothers idea to use that for our cattery. I liked it and we were
lucky to get it. We primarily focus on breeding exotic shorthairs
but it is not impossible that we might keep some persians too.
august -12 our first litter was born. Five lovely little kittens, one
persian and four exotic.
My name is Linda
and I live in a
town called Boden, about 930 km north of Stockholm. I share my
appartment with two exotics, one persian and a ragdoll. I´ve
always liked animals and almost always had them around me, dogs, a
guniea pig, rabbits and fishs. I even had some mantis but that was not
really my thing. Now I have found my animal and it is cats.
shows are something both
me and my mum are very interested in. We usually attend some every
year. Unfortunatly we don´t have as many shows up here as in
south of Sweden and the distances are long, but that dosen´t
us. It´s mostly in the spring and summer time we have the
possibility to show our cats.
am a trained detal
technician and worked as that for five years in Gällivare, a
town about 100 km north of the arctic circle. Now I work as a oto
tecnician (not sure if that is the correct english name) at Sunderby
Sjukhus, I make ear moulds to people who wear hearing aids.
name is Solveig
Öhman and Linda is
my daughter. We have a big common interest: cats.
since I was a child I
have had some animals.
we had children we had
a German Shepherd,
Zenta, who was wonderful. Sometimes I belived she knew what I was
thinking. When we got Linda she became an exellent "baby sitter". When
we were walking in the forrest she always kept an eye on her, if she
went to far away Zenta herded her back to us. Zenta got cancer and left
us at an age of 8 years.
Except dogs we also had rabbits, a guinea pig, fishs and some other
family consists of, not
only of Linda and her cats, but also my husband Jan and our son Henrik
and three exotics (Cookie, Ballerina and Safir). Me and my husband
lives in a
house in Södra Svartbyn, about 5 km outside Boden. The cats
indoor cats but we have put net around our porch so they can go
I work at a prescool nearby our home.
In 1995 we bought our first persian cat, Kompis. The kids joke and say
that we replaced them with cats when they moved out. This because we
got Kompis when Linda left home to study in Umeå and Alfred
it was time for Henrik to study in Umeå
