Norsejenta Barbro Thorsdatter

Norsejenta Barbro Thorsdatter

This is Norsejenta Barbro Thorsdatter. She is a black silver mackeral torbie Norwegian Forest Cat. She will spend her life being known as Tutta. She started out in her life as kitten #1. She was the first born from this litter. She is usually the first. Her brother, Bjorn and her were the first to eat solid food. She was the first to climb out of the kitten box. If there is a kitten out running around the house it will be Tutta most of the time. Tutta is also a purr machine. She has the sweetest face. Her registered name is Norsejenta (the cattery name) Barbro Thorsdatter. Barbro Thorsdatter was my Great Great Grandmother that emigrated from Nord Aurdal Valdres Norway to Winneshiek County Iowa in 1867. She was a widow with six children with her. Her husband died in 1865. Her second husband was on the same ship as she and her children were. I do not know if they planned to get married before they left Norway, if it was decided on the ship, or in America. She was my grandmother Amanda's grandmother, Grandma Amanda said she was a very nice, loving, and sweet woman. Just like Tutta sweet and adventurous. I discovered her family tree online a few days before the kittens were born. I also found a fourth cousin from Norway that compiled and posted the family tree. It seemed like the right name for her because this is Norsejenta's catterys B litter and she is Norskipoints Thor's daughter.

Tutta will be going to an awesome home. With a very cat loving mom, and Moonshine a cat, and her baby brother Bjorn. Tutta is the nickname of Norwegian golfer Suzann Pettersen, who Tutta's(the kitty) mom admires. I think it is a perfect name.
