Lolo Monday/Lolo Lundi

Some of you were wondering about my origins, so I thought I would use this Lolo Monday to show you my fur family. I am an Oriental Lilac Tabby Point Siamese and my birth name was Emanuel van der Nessermolen because I was born in Holland - where my fur family still lives. This is me when I was a baby.

Here are a couple of pictures of my FurMom, Amanda. I look a lot like my my FurMom (except FurMom doesn't have the Oriental features I have which I must have gotten from my Dad, but I don't know what he looks like):

FurMom lives with my sister Engel (below on the left) and my uncle Daniel (below on the right) in Amsterdam.

As you can see, Engel (below right) doesn't look too much like me (she's a Chocolate Point Siamese), but Daniel (on the left below), who is an Oriental Seal Point Siamese, does have the long Oriental bones...he is very long, indeed!

I don't see my family at all, but because their beans also have a house in the Czech Republic, my bean Mom sees them when they come to stay in the summer. I always know whenever FurMom, Engel and Daniel are near because bean Mom will come home covered with their fur and smelling faintly of my kittenhood.

"Smelling faintly of kittenhood" sounds terribly nostalgic, Lautrec!

A ll your relatives are beautiful!

What a cute baby you were, Lolo! Your mom is so pretty and you look so much like her. It was fun to see your family. What a gorgeous brood you belong to! Of course, you're gorgeous yourself so it all make sense. :)

Oh what a cute kitten photo! It's so nice to see pictures of your family but it's not fair that you can't see them when your Mummy visits. xxx
