It is a hell of a job to take pictures from Gijs when he is awake, he's like a tornado! He wants to play with us all day. During his breaks he loves to be on our laps (or on his sheepskin), caressed by our poor scratched hands, which he answers with a loud purring. And we - his staff - just loooove this little guy!
His name is real Dutch although he has a French mother and a Egyptian Mau great grandmother. It should be pronounced as the english word 'GUYS', with a Dutch G (sounds as if you have a throat problem).
By the way: we are looking for a babysitter for three weeks in July...We have a lovely home - 20 min. drive from Amsterdam - a nice small cottage garden full of flowers and a huge natural park within a 2 minute walk from our backyard. And Gijs, of course....please contact me for more info!
