Ocicat Land Rindr (Rindr)

We thank Denis Lepres of Ocicat Land, for allowing us to have this lovely girl.

Rindr finally arrived at Thor’s Oak in April 2021, at 6 months old. Her arrival was delayed by the twins, COVID and Brexit.

Rindr

Rindr’s namesake is a Jotun or maybe a Princess of the East.

She was made pregnant by Odin and bore Vali who avenged Baldr’s killing. Rindr is the personification of the hard, frozen rind of the Earth.

The original snow queen?

Beyla is named after Beyla (Old Norse: [ˈbœylɑ]) is one of Freyja’s servants along with her husband, Byggvir, in Norse mythology. Beyla is mentioned in stanzas 55, and 66, and the prose introduction to the Poetic Edda poem Lokasenna. Since this is the only mention of Beyla, scholars have turned to the etymology of Beyla’s name for additional information about her.[ However, the meaning of her name is unclear and her name has been proposed as related to “cow,” “bean,” or “bee.”  
 

On 22/04/2022 Beyla presented us with a litter of 6 kittens, 1 of which was a beautiful market Ocicat classic who we named Thorsoak Magni-Biornsson.

Our hope is that Magni will, as they say, “sire many strong sons and beautiful daughters”

From Germany

Grand Champion Ocicat Stars Queen’s Sol (Sól)

We thank Sylvia and Helmut Hoyk of Ocicat Stars, for allowing us to have this lovely girl.

Sól arrived at Thor’s Oak on November 26th November 2021

A Cinnamon Classic Tabby patterned addition to Thorsoak.

 

Sól is named after the Norse goddess of the sun.
During Ragnarok, which in Norse mythology is the end of the world, Sol will finally be swallowed by the wolf Skoll along with the sun, and the Earth will submerge into the waters.
Conversely, at Thorsoak we are hoping Sol is part of a continuing strengthening of the world of Ocicats

Lithe and powerful, yet very graceful.
