Jana and her cats Pluche, Jack & Daniel

Jana (23) lives in Outer in Belgium with her husband Kenneth and three cats. Sphynxes Jack and Daniel are brothers and follow each other everywhere. Kitten Pluche was saved by Jana from a life on the streets. She will tell their story here.

Nice, a Belgian candidate! What is it like to live in Outer?

It is lovely there. Close to the city, but still nice and quiet. Kenneth and I used to live in a flat with Jack and Daniel. But I’m so glad we moved. We now live in a real house with a garden and that’s much nicer. We moved here because we have more space, but we also moved for the cats. Now they can go outside every once in a while.

So they can play outside?

Yes, but not always. I am very afraid of losing them. That is why Jack and Daniel are only allowed in our fenced garden under supervision. And that is a real treat for them, because they lie sunbathing on the terrace for hours. Plush is still small, so he is not allowed outside yet. That will come later.

How old are your cats?

Jack and Daniel are brothers and the same age. They are now 1,5 years old. We are not sure how old Pluche is because we found her on the streets, but we estimate that he is about 3 months old now.

How nice, two brothers. They will get along fine, won’t they?

Well, actually all three of them get on very well together! Jack and Daniel do everything together – sleep, eat, play and get into mischief. They sometimes even go to the litter box and lay down in the cat tree together.

Plush has only been with us for a short time, but is already a part of the family. He had to stay in a separate room for 4 weeks because he was still so small and vulnerable – we really needed to strengthen him up. But he was immediately accepted when we introduced him to the cat brothers. Daniel has since taken care of him and is teaching him all the tricks of the cat’s trade. Very sweet, because Pluche did not have an easy start.

You found Pluche, right?

Yes, that is quite an extraordinary story. Our neighbour found a mother cat and four kittens one evening while she was renovating her house. All of them unfortunately died because they had been hit by a car. But next to mum was a small and skinny ball of wool meowing. That was our Pluche – only three weeks old and already alone in the world.

My husband and I fell in love immediately and decided to do everything for this little fellow. We rushed him to the vet the same evening and had him checked out. Fortunately, he was doing fine, but he needed very good care from that moment on. My husband and i got up every two hours to bottle-feed Pluche milk. But there is not much left of that little skinny kitten. He is now a big and happy jumping jack. And we can’t imagine life without him. He is so sweet and nice!

Pluche is also a real cuddler?

He is still a bit scared. But I think that is because he is still so small and has been through so much already. But at the end of the day, he always comes to cuddle with me.

Jack is introverted and very curious. He is far too busy for all that cuddling. Daniel, however, loves to lie on our laps and always wants to be stroked.

So they’re always close by?

Yes, actually. They can often be found in our bedroom or in one of their baskets. And when Kenneth and I are downstairs, they are lazing around in one of the hammocks or in the little house of their the Ragdoll 200. They all love it! And they can also scratch, climb and play in it. Handy, because they are still young and have a lot of energy.

Finally, why are your cats so cute?

I am a real cat person, so I love all cats. But of course I love my own cats the most! I love everything about them – they are all special and have their own character and will.

Jana has three young cats and was looking for a large scratching post with enough room for all of them. She is very happy with her choice: the Ragdoll 200 in the colour pepper [1]. Because it is big, stable and has many places for the cats to sleep. It is so beautifully made, it looks so good in her home.

DE LUIE REBEL

Katten slapen gemiddeld 16 uur per dag en doen dat vol overgave: er wordt gerekt, gestrekt en schaamteloos gegaapt. Heerlijk. De Luie Rebel is er wel héél goed in. Die laat rennen en spelen liever aan een ander over en ploft met gemak overal neer voor een overheerlijk dutje. Maar het liefst ligt deze Rebel in een lekker zacht mandje of hangmatje.

DE KRABBEL REBEL

Katten hebben van nature de behoefte om hun nagels te scherpen. Ze markeren daarmee hun territorium en worden er ontspannen en blij van. De Krabbel Rebel weet van geen ophouden als het om krabbelen gaat. Maak van je huis daarom een feestje voor deze Rebel en zet één (of meer) goede krabpalen neer.

DE OUTDOOR REBEL

Buitenkatten houden van hun vrijheid en van avontuur. Ze verstoppen zich vaak in struiken en houden de hele buurt in de gaten. Ze kunnen zich uren vermaken met rondvliegende insecten en nemen – als het even meezit – een echte muis voor je mee naar huis. De Outdoor Rebel komt thuis om gezellig met de baasjes te kroelen en rustig te eten. En stelt het op prijs als er een fijn plekje is om uit te rusten voor het volgende avontuur.

DE INDOOR REBEL

Sommige katten blijven liever binnen. Of het baasje wil dit graag. Indoor Rebels vinden het heerlijk om naar buiten te kijken – naar al het spannends wat zich daar afspeelt. Je maakt deze katten blij door het binnen net zo spannend te maken als buiten. Prikkel hun instincten met speeltjes en krabmeubels waar ze lekker in kunnen klimmen, want dan blijven ze gelukkig en gezond.

THE LAZY REBEL

Cats sleep up to 16 hours a day with full commitment: lots of stretching and shameless yawning… Mhmm, delicious. The lazy Rebel masters this trait like no other and prefers to leave the running and playing to someone else. This lazy napper is able to lie down anywhere to take a well-deserved rest, but they prefer a nice and soft hammock or basket.

THE SCRATCHING REBEL

Cats naturally have the need to sharpen their nails. This way they mark their territory. It also makes them relaxed and happy. The scratching Rebel will never stop when it comes to this. Transform your house into a “scratching paradise” for this Rebel and supply it with one or several good cat trees.

THE OUTDOOR REBEL

Outdoor cats love adventure and freedom. They often hide in bushes to keep an eye on their surroundings. They can entertain themselves for hours with bugs flying around and they might even take home a real mouse for you! The outdoor Rebel will come home to cuddle with its owner and to eat peacefully. This adventurer would appreciate it if there is a nice spot in your house to rest before the next adventure.

THE INDOOR REBEL

Some cats prefer to stay inside, this can also be a decision made by the owner. Indoor Rebels enjoy watching the outside world – and everything exciting that happens there. You can make these cats happy by making the indoor world just as exciting as the outdoor world. Stimulate their senses with toys and cat furniture in which they can climb. This way they remain healthy and happy.

DER FAULE REBELL

Katzen schlafen durchschnittlich 16 Stunden pro Tag und tun dies voller Hingabe. Sie strecken sich, dehnen sich und gähnen unverhohlen. Herrlich! Der faule Rebell ist sehr gut darin. Er überlässt das Toben und Spielen am liebsten jemand anderem und macht stattdessen lieber ein kleines Nickerchen. Am liebsten bevorzugt dieser Schläfer ein weiches Sofa oder ein gepolsterte Liegefläche.

DER KRATZENDE REBELL

Katzen haben von Natur aus das Bedürfnis, ihre Nägel zu schärfen. Damit markieren sie zum einen ihr Territorium und verhindern zum anderen, dass die Nägel zu lang werden und einwachsen. Kratzen, wetzen und schärfen macht sie entspannt und glücklich. Der Kratz-Rebell kennt dann auch kein Halten mehr, wenn es ums Wetzen und Kratzen geht. Mach dein Zuhause also zu einer Partyzone für diesen Rebellen und stelle einen (oder mehrere) gute Kratzbäume mit viel Wetzmöglichkeiten auf.

DER OUTDOOR-REBELL

Freigängerkatzen lieben die Freiheit und das Abenteuer. Oft verstecken sie sich im Gebüsch und behalten die ganze Nachbarschaft im Auge. Sie können sich stundenlang mit fliegenden Insekten vergnügen, streunen herum und bringen im schlimmsten Fall eine Maus als Geschenk mit nach Hause. Der Outdoor-Rebell kommt nur nach Hause, um mit den Besitzern eventuell zu kuscheln und sich sein Fressen servieren zu lassen. Und er schätzt es über alle Maßen, wenn er einen schönen, gemütlichen Platz am liebsten auf einem Kratzbaum zum Ausruhen für das nächste Abenteuer angeboten bekommt.

DER INDOOR-REBELL

Einige Katzen sind reine Indoor-Rebellen. Entweder, weil sie es vorziehen in einem warmen und gefahrlosen Zuhause zu leben oder weil der Besitzer dies so möchte. Indoor-Rebellen lieben es nach draußen zu schauen – und das aufregende Leben draußen aus sicherer Entfernung zu beobachten. Diese Katzen sind glücklich, wenn man drinnen die gleichen Abenteuer simuliert, die sie draußen beobachten können. Stimuliere deren Instinkte mit Spielzeug und Kratzmöbeln, in denen sie herumklettern und toben können, damit sie gesund, agil und glücklich bleiben.
