Gizzy Quilt Slide Show

Ruby, Diesel, Roscoe, Freya, and Ziggy

We all love our Gizzy quilts - and they flew a long way - all the way to New Zealand. We are a family of 4 Maine Coons living with big sister Ruby who keeps us all in line. We don't have a blog yet (Mum's too busy, but we are working on it ...). It's been winter here, so having the quilts to snuggle up in has been wonderful. And having them on the chairs stops visitors getting covered in cat furs when they sit down! We all think Millie's mum is just so clever and we have ordered the Halloween Gizzy - hope we got in first! The photos show the quilts separately, and us modelling them, so you can see how well they match our furs. Without further ado - introducing:

Ruby - I'm the oldest (8 years). I had a beautiful ginger brother but he went to the bridge when I was only 2, so mum who loves gingers and saw some Maine Coons at a cat show was smitten, so that's how Diesel got to join the family.

Diesel - I'm 6 1/2 years old and a BIG boy - around 9 kg which is about 20 lbs. Maine Coons were still quite rare in New Zealand when Mum got me, but she was so impressed with my looks and my lovely nature, she couldn't resist getting one (or three!) more.

I'm Roscoe (silver grey tabby), and that's my sister Freya (red-shaded silver) below. We're 6 years old. Freya says sorry for the photo of her on the quilt - but she is shy, and it was hard getting her to pose. You can see me and the baby of the family, Ziggy, looking in through the glass doors.

Hi, I'm Ziggy, and I've just turned 2. I have a lot of growing to do (Maine Coons don't fully mature until 3 to 4 years of age) but I don't think I'll end up quite as big as Diesel. That doesn't stop me trying to rassle him all the time though. He's a very tolerant big brother; if he's had enough he just sits on me!

Thank you Millie's mum. We think our quilts are just wonderful.
