Wikipedia and Nebbelung

Post  Anke Zekveld on Sun Oct 28, 2007 4:39 am

Have you also noticed that the Nebelung is only mentioned in the Dutch, English en Svedish Wikipedia? In Swedish there is just one line telling you …… study Computer translation: The Nebelung is one semi longhair variant of the cat Russian blue. This cat race is not recognized by the SVERAK and is not yet in Sweden. But this short text is found as the 4th link at the Google in Sweden when you ask for Nebelung.

Swedish http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebelung
English http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebelung
Dutch http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebelung

It could be also interesting for you to add the Nebelung to the German, French, Polish, Russian or what ever Wikipedia. It’s another way to get our breed in the spotlights. flower

Adding a text and photos to the Wikipedia is fairly easy. (Even I can do it lol!, but it takes some time ) And if you like the pink thing on the right in the English, Dutch and Swedish you just copy the html-text, and put at the top of your text.

Regards,

This a computer translation of the text in Dutch. I like the emphasis on the breed in the Netherlands, The relationship with the Russian blue and the Nebelung(if you only read about Cora her start of the breed the point of the Russian Blue being close is missed) Character and added a few links.

If I can help you with getting the photos on the wikipedia just tell.


The Nebelung are a characteristic and elegant cat race, which seems come with its mysterious appearance this way from a fairytale. The name Nebelung (German for fog being) is appropriate well at this cat with its coat that reminds of dew on a summer dawn.

Origin

The American foundation of this cat race has been laid by the cats Siegfried (1984) and Brunhilde (1985). Cora Cobb, the owner of Siegfried and Brunhilde, was very under the impression of her beautiful blue/grey cats. Siegfried and Brunhilde looked like a Russian Blue but with al semi-long coat. To find out if it was possible to start a new breed with these cats Cora got in touch with the geneticist of the American Cat Association Tica. This geneticist, dr. Solveig Pfleuger, told that the race was defined bests as Semi- long Russian Blue. Supported by dr. Pfleuger Cora Cobb wrote the breeding standard according to the blue Russian, but with a difference; its length.
In the race standard of the TICA, the first association which recognized the Nebelung, you can find the next description of the breed. The goal of the Nebelung breeding program is to produce a blue cat with the same type as those imported from Russia in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and to combine this type with a thick shimmering coat of medium length. The body and tail are long, the ears large in proportion to the head and the eyes range in color from yellowish green to green. Size is medium and the body well muscled. The coat is medium long on the body, longer on the tail, with lighter colored guard hairs. The overall appearance is long, sturdy and well muscled.

The Nebelung in the Netherlands
The Nebelung is a rather new race, of which some breeders can be found in the Netherlands. In the Netherlands is are, just like in the United States, beside cats which descend of the American first Nebelung, also Nebelungen from Russia (which mostly descend of the Russian blue) and Nebelungen who are descendant of Russian blue, but bred in the Netherland. The Russian Blue is the only race that is allowed to be used for breeding Nebelung, and kittens of these matings should only be used for Nebelung breedings. At present the Nebelung are recognized by the Tica, WCF, the independent cat associations in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany.

Character
The Nebelung are a lively, playful, affectionate, good-natured and intelligent cat. In spite of that it is an active cat is, is can live very well indoors. The Nebelung prefere their own family and keep often a distance to strangers. It is, however, a cat which gladly has company of people or of an other car.

GRRRRR, Bernard, Have you seen the changes the wiki editor made on the pictures at your page on the french wiki. affraid GGRRRR Evil or Very Mad

He/ she has no sence of beauty. All the pictures on the right and very small. Fighting with a "editor" doesn't work, but I did change one horizontal picture for a vertical picture. Then its a bit bigger and one doesn't need his glasses to see the cat.

Hi Bernard,

I do like the result as well, but loved the pink thing Very Happy
I noticed the links within the Wikipedia have been made. At the cat breed page you also find the Nebelung now!!! cheers

I was just thinking a two minor things.
French is not only spoken in France. So it could be good to tell that the breed is also "available" in Canada. To help Ann-Marie a bit.

I think I missed the Germany as breeding country.

I will look at the English one again. I’ll modify the text as you liked the Dutch text best. But at the moment I’m writing an article for a Dutch Russian blue/ Nebelung society about genetics etc. and have the flu….
