Is a fantastic movie, but that is not what I want to write about today. Nope, today I want to write about my own sweet Vita who's named after the well known British aristocratic gardener/writer/poet Vita Sackville-West (can we spell Sissinghurst?). My Vita lives up to her name as she is just as aristocratic and ladylike as her namesake, from the tip of her upturned nose right up to the tip of her very luxurious and fashionable tail. Vita's nickname is (among others) Miss Lola With Her Feathered Boa (Miss Lola met haar stola) as she manipulates her scrumptious tail just as seductively as those gorgeous courtesans in bygone ages with their feathered boa's or beautiful fans.
Little boy Volodja already falling victim to Vita's gorgeous tail.
And Vita seduced quite a few males of the feline persuasion in her time. Her first red hot lover was Gizmo, a bit of a toyboy as he was younger than Vita. Well, as a fashionable Maine Coon you have to keep up with the times, don't you?
Vita and Gizmo are the proud parents of 5 bouncing baby girls: Dolly, Molly, Polly, Holly and Jolly.
Here's a pic of baby Polly Pumpkin, and of course, if you are a regular visitor here then you already are acquainted with the delectable Dolly Daisy who is one the supervisors at Bliss.
A few years passed and then Vita found another lover, a gorgeous brown tabby Maine Coon male called Squeek. He was called that because of the sound he made when he tried to say something. It was very amusing to hear such a very macho male cat emit such a silly sound. With Squeek Vita got 4 gorgeous babies, 2 boys and 2 girls.
From left to right: miss Bombalurina, sir Pouncival, mr Mistoffelees and miss Jellylorum.
This is drop dead gorgeous sir Pouncival (Pouncer) when he grew up and became quite the lady killer. Isn't he the handsomest Maine Coon boy you've ever seen? And small wonder with such a beautiful and seductive mother as our Vita.
If there's one thing that Vita greatly enjoys in her life it's kittens! She loves them all, regardless whether they are hers or somebody else's. I've very seldom met a feline who is such a great mother as my Vita. Here she is snuggling up with some adorable Russian Blue babies.
And here she's giving Teuntje a wash while his Mum Surprise looks on from outside in the garden.
A few years later Vita got married for the third time, this time to Sammy, a very large and sweet Maine Coon boy.
They are the proud parents of 4 Maine Coon girls and one boy. Aren't they cute?
Here's a close up of two of the girls: Honey B and Blossom. Totally adorable, don't you think?
And if you are a regular visitor, then you have seen Blossom and her other sister Badger before.
Here they are looking after a darling baby boy. A great fondness of babies and looking after them most certainly runs in the family!
But although Vita loves babies, she also likes a lot of other things as well. With her namesake Vita Sackville-West she shares a love of books.
Vita also has a great fondness of catnip and here she is sampling the catnip together with her daughter Dolly.
Grooming is high on her list of priorities too as Vita wants to maintain her image of the most gorgeous and fashionable Maine Coon in town.
And my Vita is bella, very bella and she's having her 12th birthday today. So happy birthday my sweet girl, you're the best!
I've had computer problems for a week and have been unable to either blog or comment. Luckily everything is OK now.

The cat by magic comes
Through slits of doors or air
To shadow through the rooms
And stalk what is not there.
And thrust outside the night,
With old and formal shout
In frightful guise she fights
The demons all about.
Then soft in sunny days,
Lulled in the leaves she goes.
No face of fiend dismays
Her vunerable repose.
