NFO n 24

Birthweight 152 grams

GSD IV Normal.

Tested FIV/FELV/FIP Negativ

Owner : Christine Allaman and Cattery D`Haakona, Geneva in Switzerland

Historically known as Byzantium and Constantinople.

The Golden city by the straits of Bosphorus, situated on two continents ,Europe and the Near East.

Since we might believe that the vikings brought with them cats to Norway, that might have mated the Norwegian wild cats, and by that being part the NFOs heritage.

It is rather a fairytale tribute to a part of it`s origin mabye.

And a enigmatic beautiful very old mysterious city. A cool name for such a very very cool cat.


Istanbul is in a way named after his mother Byzants, but in it`s  renamed and very masculine form.

Istanbul out with daddy Slode in the dusky rain. Slode loves his boys very much, and often plays with them , wash a lot and care.

Here he made the photos almost impossible, because he was impressing his son Istanbul, with chatting and climbing all over, even up the " wall" and  into  the plants in the background.

Super sweet and very funny, but with a lot of unclear photos of both daddy Slode and his active son.

On top of that Slodes grandson, and Istanbuls close relative, Juventus, came a long as well. They turned the table by jumping back and forth in the end ...........
