Vi er en familie på 3 mennesker og hittil 5 katter som bor på Lade i Trondheim.
Jeg, Christine, min samboer Bjarne og vår datter, Cecilie, født i 1998.
Jeg har hatt katter og en hund gjennom hele oppveksten min, og har hatt katter
sjøl i snart 20 år. Huskatter i de fleste av disse årene. Etter at min eldste
huskatt Misja døde i 2006, 15 år gammel, dro jeg på Trønderkattens utstilling i
2006. Der forelsket jeg meg fullstendig i Maine Coon’ene jeg så der.
Jeg bare måtte ha en Maine Coon, og etter en tids leting kom S*Lindevoll’s Kittsi i hus. En
stor takk til Solveig Iglebæk for en nydelig sortskilpaddetabbyfrøken med et
fantastisk gemytt.



På samme tid som jeg lette etter en Maine Coon, kom jeg over et kull med
sølvsomalier hos Tingerling’s i Halden. Der ble jeg helt betatt av lille Jessie James,
aka JJ her hjemme. En helt utrolig personlighet med et herlig humør.
Dessverre greide han å komme seg ut og bli påkjørt bare 9 mnd gammel, og vi
her hjemme var helt knust.

Snille og gode Mona Ulsund tilbød oss en ny gutt fra hennes neste kull, og vi fikk
til og med bestemme navnet sjøl. Så lenge navnet startet med en K da. Valget
falt på Karlos. En fantastisk somaligutt ble det, med den herlige personligheten
en somali har. Kosete, kjærlig, nysgjerrig og småfrekk, med en helt utrolig
sjarm.



Etter hvert startet jakten på en ny Maine Coon, fordi denne rasen fascinerte

meg, og jeg begynte å lære mer om den . Jeg ønsket meg veldig en svart gutt, og
fant den jeg ønsket meg hos Maja hos Mystic-Woods.com. Han ble vår Kaizer,
Mystic Wood’s Eternal Flame. Tusen takk til Maja for denne herlige gutten.

Stamnavnet Ladejarlen falt naturlig, siden vi bor på Lade, og jeg ønsket meg et
navn med litt historisk klang over seg. Ladejarlene hersket over Trøndelag i
vikingetiden og det finnes mange sagn og fortellinger om dem.

Oppdatering desember 2011: Etter dette har det kommet til flere Maine Cooner,
hos verdens beste forvert og venninne Harriet Marie Gjønvik bor Athene, Olivia og Loverboy.
Tusen takk til oppdretterne Nina Camilla Wilhelmsen ((N) Tabbytail’s), Trine Helskog ((N) Fragleberget’s)
og Berit Chruickshank ((N) Yowie’s) for tilliten de har vist meg.

English version

We are a family of three people and up to now five cats,
who live in Lade in Trondheim.
I, Christine, my common-law husband Bjarne and our daughter,
Cecilie, born in 1998.
I’ve had cats and a dog through all of my growing-up years,
and have been a cat-owner myself for almost 20 years.
Domestic cats during most of these years. When my oldest housecat, Misja,
had died in March 2006, 15 years old,
I went to a cat show right by where I live.
There I completely fell in love with the Maine Coons I saw there
– what a magnificent breed! I just had to get a Maine Coon,
and after a while of looking for one, S*Lindevoll’s Kittsi
became a part of our family.
Many thanks to Solveig Iglebæk for a beautiful black tortie tabby
girl with a wonderful personality.

At the same time as I was looking for a Maine Coon,
I got attracted to a litter of blacksilver Somalis at
Tingerling’s in Halden, Norway.
There I was enchanted by little Jessie James,
or JJ as his name got to be here.
A unique personality with a fantastic approach to life.
Unfortunately he slipped out one morning and got himself killed by a car,
only nine months old. We were devastated.

Lovely Mona at Tingerling’s offered us a new boy from her upcoming litter,
and we even got to decide his name ourselves.
As long as it started with a K, of course. Our choice became Karlos.
A totally gorgeous boy, with the wonderful personality of a Somali.
Cuddly, devoted, curious and a bit cheeky, with an incredible charm
that makes us forget his cheekiness.
Mona, thank you so much for this amazing boy!

After a while I started looking for a Maine Coon boy,
because this breed fascinated me as I started to learn more about it.
I really wanted a black Maine Coon boy, and I found the one I wanted
at Mystic Wood’s.
He really is our Kaizer, Mystic Wood’s Eternal Flame.
Lots of hugs and thanks to Maja for this beautiful boy.

My breeder’s name Ladejarlen fell quite naturally,
because we live in Lade and I wanted a name with historic
associations.
The Ladejarls (Earls) ruled this part of Norway in the Viking era,
and there are plenty of legends and stories about them.

Update December 2011: Since this was written, much has happened.
Three of my cats, Athene, Olivia and Loverboy, live with my good friend Harriet Marie Gjønvik
and have the perfect home there. Thank you so much to my breeder friends Nina Camilla Wilhelmsen
at (N) Tabbytail’s, Trine Helskog at (N) Fragleberget’s and Berit Chruickshank at (N) Yowie’s
for letting me buy their babies.
