Meet me and my family

For a long time I wanted to introduce myself and my family with pictures. Not just any pictures, but those taken with the Nikon V1, 1 Nikkor 18.5mm f/1.8, 50m f/1.4 C-Mount and 25mm f/1.4 C-Mount. Let’s begin with me, the admin of this blog. My name is Ivan.

This is my girlfriend Sanijela or Sani.

This is Čupa (pronounced like Choopa and means hairy), our male cat.

He and Macojka are brother and sister and I have taken them from my neighbour, who has half a dozen adult cats and a dozen kittens, and was happy to give them away.

This is Tufnica, or “small spot” in English. She slipped through the fence a week ago and I’ve been unable to find her since. 🙁

And this is our adult dog Džukac, which means mutt in English. I’ve found him on the street many months ago and took him in. He was already too old to get used to a new name and he responded immediately to “Džukac”. I saw no reason to force a nicer name onto a dog, which has many grey hairs on the back. You know what people say, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. 😉

    Please consider having your kitties fixed to stop the production of more kittens. Hope you find your puppy soon. And thank you for rescuing the adult dog off the street and giving him a home.

      I meant to have Macojka castrated, but she surprised us by getting in season far too early. At least judging by her physical size. She was very small when she started to go out looking for mates. After she nurtures this first litter, we will have her “fixed”, as you say. We’ve already talked to people who are looking to adopt the kittens. 🙂
      No thanks necessary, I love animals of all kinds, if I had the means I would adopt even more. Unfortunately I don’t.
