... It's been quite a while. Lina and I thought
you might like to see some new pictures of ArA.
She's all grown up now, and is the love of our
lives - a gorgeous animal, to say the least.
As you can see from the photos, she is now a
pet-owner, herself, having the company of two
betas. Only one is evident in the pictures,
but there are now two in separate tanks. They
were originally planned to be a temporary game
for her, as we thought she would quickly find
them a delectable treat. But it didn't take
long for her to claim them as her own, and she
now spends time every day lying by the tanks,
keeping them warm. She watches so closely as
they eat, and supervises their weekly tank-cleanings.
She drinks their water, preferring it over her
own charcoal-filtered water fountain, and the
fish seem to like her company, as well ... Calmly
eating their food at the top, within inches
of her tongue, lapping their water. It is really
the cutest thing. ArA has grown in so many ways.
She patiently agrees to manicures, pedicures,
and grooming. She asks so nicely for her daily
treats, and shows us her wild side occasionally,
jumping through her tunnel and tent in the living
room, running sideways with her back arched
(trying to scare us), and sometimes playfully
begging to be "chased" through the
rooms of the apartment. She has learned how
to get up onto the highest surfaces she can
find, where she can intently watch everything
in the room. And of course, she LOVES her naps.
Anyway, hoping you enjoy these photos. -Paul
Hi there, I thought I would send you some pictures
of the boys all grown up. They are such sweety
pies. Moonpie is such a cuddly little boy--likes
to sleep in my arms and purrs up a storm. He's
a talker too. Moonpie is my little swishy tail
boy. Likes to rub up against your legs and then
plops himself on your feet. They both love to
be with us--following us around the house--even
if it's to run upstairs to get something real
quick, they like to follow us. They are also
very devoted to each other. They like to wash
each others face--at the same time. It's funny
to watch. I definitely think I got the cream
of the crop :) Enjoy the pictures. - Cynthia,
Finding you and your babies has made my whole
family (sons, grandson, Jack) so very happy....Dana
is a character and we love to be in his presence....He
is smart, funny and playful (at all hours of
the night)..Golfing is his passion, I kid you
not....really great to hear him 'on the course'
at 4 AM, hitting his golf balls on the wood
floors....Grrrrr....He is everything I hoped
he would be and more....Fox deals with him well;
they are inseparable and Fox is tolerant of
Dana's antics.....What a pair...not hard on
the eyes either....Are there more beautiful
cats, perhaps, but I haven't found any...stay
Please don't feel as if you have to respond
to this email. You have enough to do with all
your babies. Just wanted you to know: We love
him, we love him, we love him!!!!!!!!!!!! He
is the most well adjusted little kitten. He
has brought so much joy and laughter into our
lives in such a very short time. At night now
around 9 or so he starts meowing to Jimmy. That
means I want to go to bed with you now!!! Off
the two go and he hops up on the bed next to
Jimmy's chest and goes off to sleep. I can't
believe what I am seeing!!!!!! He already knows
his name and if you call and ask where he is
he will come to you. I adore him and yes, he
knows it. We are so happy and blessed with him.
Doesn't she look adorable? I cant tell you how
much I love her. All my friends adore her too.
She is so spunky and chases Penelope all around
the house. I usually have a midnight snack...with
my string cheese...and she is all over me. You
should see her. I thank you so very much, with
out you I wouldn't have little Kiwi. I named
her that after your kitty. I will send you more
pictures as soon as I can get them from my camera.
I still don't know what I'm doing. Haha. Hope
your doing well.. -Love Sam-
Hi Joan -- Just wanted to let you know that
Flame Flame (new name Boomer) has adjusted very
well to his new home and his new friend (he
never lets Oscar out of his sight!). He was
even down the shore for Memorial Day weekend
(at our beach house, not on the beach). Here
are a few pix of him. He's gained some weight,
he's now 3 1/2 pounds and is very healthy.
We're just loving him!! Best regards, Linda
do you like our little boy??? He and Miki are
fast friends now and Miki has finally stopped
his plaintive mahrowling around the house looking
for his former lost friend... They play lots
and Miki keeps Beaudie's face clean... name
Beaudie Princepurr Kingsly...The kitty sleeps
with us... on the pillows over our heads each
night... you did a great job raising him as
he does not scratch our furniture but does go
to the four scratch objects, which are placed
around our home....he is a verrrry nice kitty
so sweet and very pretty too... thought you
would like a 16 week update... How is the pool
going... did it get to be complete before September???
We will not close ours until 3rd week in October...
I like to sit by poolside even if it is too
cold to go in... but with our recent weather,
we are still swimming.
Warm Regards, Barbara
Merry Christmas Joan and Ed,
Michael and I just wanted to thank you for giving
us the two most precious gifts that we have
been blessed with, Remi and Tortie Girl. We
just wanted to share our first family picture
with you and we are working on a new picture
that captures all four of us!
Take care and Godbless. We will stay in touch!!
Thank you, Ferith
How are you? Hope that you had a great summer
- seems like it went so quickly this year.
I wanted to send you a few updated pictures
of Pepper. She is such a joy to have around
the house - bringing her into our home has been
one of the best things that we have ever done.
She is so lovable and cozy - she loves to lay
with us - even Jeff or I lay on the sofa for
a bit, she is right there cuddled up next to
us. When I get home from work - she is always
there to greet me with her meows. She is very
vocal, very playful, but also knows when to
just relax with us. You can rest assured that
she is a very loved kitten - everyone who meets
her instantly falls in love! We can't help but
spoil her as much as we can.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello - and I hope
you are doing well. I'll continue to send updates
as she grows...
I just had to write you and tell you how happy
we are with our kitten. We named her Kiki, she
had her visit to the vet last week and everything
is good. She is growing up so fast, she is double
the size from when we first got her and more
beautiful everyday. She is so much fun, she
has the best personality, one minuet she is
purring and rubbing her face on mine and the
next she is running through the house like a
crazy girl. She sleeps on my pillow every night
and follows me through the house wherever I
go. I love her so much!! Thanks!!
How are the new kittens? I bet they are beautiful,
I think we are going to stay with just the one
for now, but if we ever decide to expand the
family we have your number.
Once I get some pictures printed I will send
Hania and Wayne
Just wanted to give you an update on how Missa
is doing. She's such a wonderful addition to
our family, and is so playful and loving. She
right away began to get along with our adult
male Persian (who's a tough customer, so that's
a good sign!), and my long-haired tabby, who
is so happy to finally have a play-mate! She
follows my six-year-old around like a puppy,
and loves to play with him. She even sleeps
on his bed!
I also wanted to know if you were expecting
any litters soon, as we are looking forward
to another little kitty to join our family.
Any flame-points on the way? Let me know, we'd
love another! Thanks!
Hope all is well.
I had told you I would send you some pictures
and just haven't gotten around to it. Barney
and Boomer are doing well. Barney is standing
up in the picture. Both unique personalities
but love each other very much and are inseparable.
Thank you for your beautiful kitties.
Just to let you know she has brought so much
joy to our home and is such a good little girl.
She is really a Daddy's girl I come home and
say Mercedes I am home and she comes out and
says ok, Ralf comes home she bounces around
his feet like daddy daddy its me look at me.
He had to be gone last week to Chicago and when
he came home late Thursday night she flew off
the couch to bounce around him - he eats this
all up. She had a nice first Christmas with
many gifts from family and friends but she likes
pens and paper best and only wants the pen you
are using. She is growing fast, you forget how
busy they are vs one that was 16 she can wear
you out in a day. Thank You again for letting
her come into our home. - Gail
Joan, I just had to write to tell you how much
we love our baby. He is just the sweetest little
baby boy. My parents came over and met him for
the first time and my mom said how is it that
you got another fantastic cat with such a great
personality. He already has run of the house,
which is a mini version of yours!! Haha. He
does not like the playhouse though, either does
Tiamo. He is so sweet with Sienna that when
I came in her room late last night to check
on her, they were sleeping so closely that his
paw was on her face!! I went to get the camera
but he must of heard me and followed me downstairs.
He sat right by the fridge, we cannot believe
this little guy, he begs more than a dog. We've
been calling him mangia, which I'm sure you
know means eat in Italian. Well, hope all is
well with you. We just absolutely love little
romeo, luciano, bobo bunny etc. We call this
kitten every name there is and he comes to them
all!! HaHa. Remember what I said about stopping
by ---- anytime. Thanks again and I will send
pictures soon. Take care, -Deb
Our baby has settled in and we are so happy
to have her with us.
She loves to play and to be with not only us,
but everyone who comes to visit. She sleeps
with us at night and greets us when we come
We decided to name her Princess because she
is going to be treated like one!
I am so happy you enjoyed the
card. You are a terrific breeder and we are
so fortunate to have found you!!!!!! I showed
my mom the picture of Jeremy and she went crazy.
I don;t know how this is going to play out,
my father doesn't really want the kitten but
my brother is going to talk to him. Will see.
I will be in touch in with you. -Kathy
Just thought you'd like to see how gorgeous
Lalita is and how happy she is with her boyfriend
We adore her!

Hi Joan, I was going to email
you tonight about Bella. She's got the run of
the house and loves it. She purrs when she gets
her fur combed. (my last cat fought every minute.)
She sleeps in my daughters bed every night.
She's a great kitten. She's home. Thanks, Jim
Thought you would enjoy some pix of Nikky..He's
into everything! Always exploring and sometimes
gets himself into trouble. He's wonderful. He's
happy, healthy and loving life.
We luv him to pieces..Hope this finds you and
Luv, Bev, Mom, Nikky
Hi Joan....Chanel Rose is the sweetest baby
doll in the whole world. Dolce loves her too
..... maybe just a little too much. He has a
habit of holding her in place with his big paws
and licking her head and face all over. She
seems to like it except when she is on her back
and he's licking her belly and her little tiny
face is smothered by his big furry body.....then
she whimpers 'cause it appears like she can't
breath and can't move. I really gotta watch
him....he's a little too rough when he plays
with her. Anyway, she's a good girl...I took
her to my ma's assisted living home and all
the old ladies loved her and made such a fuss.
I'm going to bring her up there every few weeks
so my mother can see how she's growing.
I wanted to ask you....Chanel is thirteen weeks
old now and should I bring her to the vet for
her last kitten shots? I forgot the protocol
for kittens since it's been so long since I
Take care. -Karen Rose
Dana was neutered last Friday and is none the
worse for the experience. He came home Friday
evening without skipping a beat (or a meal)......His
personality is amazing!!!! He is friendly, affectionate,
loves everyone, follows his people everywhere
(including the bathroom) and loves sitting in
sinks and shower stalls.....He fetches his mousies
and greets us in the morning by dropping one
between us.....What a cat....he is no longer
a kitty and the vet thinks he will be large
(he is as big as Fox) which is great!!! hope
all your kitties are well...we are off to London
this Saturday for 8 days and then will be home
for the balance.....maxine
Sorry it took so long to send you some pictures,
She is doing great and so playful and loving!!
We let our daughter name her and she picked
Winter Harmony, she said because that's when
she got her in the "winter"!!! And
it fits her perfectly!!
Bella is always carrying her (no walking necessary
for Winter)!! Winter sleeps with Bella, the
bond is amazing !! Thank you so much and we
are so happy with her!!
Daniella & Izabella
Thank you for understanding. I will let you
know how Sofie gets along with her new adopted
sister. She is really a sweetie----follows me
around the house, even when I am vacuuming!
You should really get yourself a website!!!
I think people will be amazed with your "cat
room" and how well taken care of your kittens
are. You will end up with a waiting list for

It's been a while since we corresponded. Siena
is doing fine. She started out very mellow but
has turned into somewhat of a rascal. She likes
to tease the dog and jump into the shower and
bath tub. She has quite the nose for good Thai
food but we just chase her away from the table.
She'll sleep with Mary or I but only at the
top of the pillow.
She has the same fetish as her sister for lying
across my keyboard and chasing the mouse cursor
on my Apple screen. Her growth has been steady
and she no longer looks like a kitten. The pictures
I've attached are 3 to 4 months old. She's much
I hope all is well with you.
Just thought I'd let you know that "Callalily"
(we thought we were going with Lily but we decided
she looks like a Callie so we went with Callalily
and call her Callie) is doing great. Her and
Cody have become best friends.
Callie has the more mischievous streak to her.
She follows Cody wherever he goes.
I attached a few pictures. -Mitch
Hi Joan, Lola aka "tortie girl" turns
one today! We thought you might like to see
a few pictures of her. She's petite and adorable.
She and Boscotti are great friends. We love
Sincerely, Karen and Bill Wirtz
It has been five months since I made the best
purchase of my life. Prior to purchasing Baby,
I completed a lot of research on kittens and
could not be happier with my choice of a Himalayan.
He has made my family so happy, we are all just
so in love with him. He quickly became a part
of our family. His personality and the love
he shows you is truly a gift. Baby was born
on March 17, 2010 he is now five months old.
Here is a recent photo of Baby in his favorite
spot, in our master bathroom sink.
Doris from South Jersey
Hi Joan!!! How are you and all
I wanted to let you know how wonderful Kallies
last baby girl is doing in my home. I decided
to name her Keely, which means beautiful
in Ireland. She is growing very strong as is
attached at the hip to my Pomeranian Barli.
They spend all day and all night together, sleeping
under my bed. I hear purring throughout the
night since Keely is so happy with Barli. They
play all the time, wrestling and chasing each
other. I never would have believed a dog and
cat could be this inseparable! When I go out
to run errands, they wait for me together in
the window as you can see in the picture.
My older cat Zip is just enjoying watching
them and they kind of leave her alone, which
she seems to not mind at all. Keely would much
rather play with Barli because she is young
and energetic I guess.
Thanks again for giving us this adorable new
member to our family! She is such a doll and
I just wanted you to know how well she has adjusted.
Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season,
The kittens are doing wonderful! They are loving
and playful and already act like they own the
place! We couldn't be happier with them, especially
that we got two! You are right, it is really
no more work than one cat and they have adjusted
so much faster. Thank you so much again for
breeding these beautiful babies!!
The Kisto Family
I wanted to send you a couple of photos - Coco
is settling in very well. Yesterday Coco and
Daisy got within 6 inches of each other, face
to face, with no hissing. I predict they will
be playing together soon. My son got very attached
to her and wanted to bring her back home with
us! My parents are very thrilled with their
new addition and Coco is such a sweet tempered,
loving little girl with a big purr.
Thanks for all your efforts and for the wonderful
work you do.
How are you? This is Maria and the Brooklyn
Boy. We gave him the name Corazon
which means heart in Spanish. He
is almost 9 months old now and he is so sweet,
tender and playful. We love him so much! He
became so fluffy and so beautiful!!! I cant
help caressing him most of the time when Im
home. Im surprised that hes so smart.
We dont need the alarm in the morning,
he knows his schedule and always makes us wake
up in time.
Im very grateful that I found your website
because your cats are amazing. Corazon became
a member of our family and we are so happy to
I attached some of his pictures to this letter,
please have a look!
Just wanted to let you know how great Mia is!
She's so playful and loves attention!! Her personality
is so cute. The first time I took her to the
vet they all loved her. The vet thought she
was so cute and took pictures of her to show
the staff who were not there that day! I had
to take her again on Thursday to get another
shot and they were all so excited to see her
again! Too funny! The vet asked for your website
because she said a lot of people call and ask
for good breeders. Just wanted to give you a
little update. I will send pictures of her when
she gets bigger so you can see her beautiful
points! Happy New Year!
just thought you might enjoy.
i take cosmo everywhere....he is the sweetest
most loving kitty ever....everyone loves him

Just wanted to give you an update on Amaretta
Angel- Ammy for short. She is extremely loving
and quite a piston in the morning. She is on
the move and all over the place. She is happy
and affectionate as you said she would be. Just
turned 5 months on 9/7 and is already 6 pounds.
A very healthy eater and as you can see quite
Beautiful. I love her dearly and feel blessed
to have her. Thank-you! She does not have a

We are so delighted with Pebbles and enjoy all
of her daily habits such as joining us at the

Thank you so much for our little kitty Dolce!
She is such a sweetie and she really brings
us so much joy.
When we adopted her 4 years ago on February
26th, 2008 we had no idea the amount of love
we could have for a kitten!
It is so funny to see all of the things she
gets into. We love every hair on her body! Especially
the hair between her toes (which we call NIKE
Again thank you so much for our little baby!
We love her!

Hello Joan! Happy Holidays to you!
Here are two pictures of Angelina Noel from
this summer. We have a Yacht that we spend most
of our summers on, we take Angelina with us.
She loves it! Angelina will be two years old
You have such beautiful, healthy kittens and
cats. Angelina is a true delight, so beautiful
and follows me everywhere (she loves my son
too). She is sweet, playful and loving! So much
that I am looking for a male kitten to spoil
as well. I am interested in either a male Seal
or Chocolate Point from Kozette.
Please keep me in mind. All the best. Janet
P.S. You can see her pure beauty, she is so
precious to even look at . . . loving her is
so easy to do. My husband says that I spoil
her more than him and the kids. He may be right.
Our little Cocoa bean at 18 months...
We love her every waking moment! Thank you again
for bringing her into our lives!!

My flamepoint kitten, Kringle (a.k.a. Little
Flame), will be one year old tomorrow, December
17, 2012. Kringle is beautiful, and he has a
wonderful spirit. He is a big boy with a very
healthy appetite; he weighs about ten pounds.
His favorite place to sleep is in his kitty
hammock. It is so much fun to watch my youngest
daughter and Kringle play "tag" with
each other. This will be our first Christmas
with Kringle, so I will enjoy watching his reactions
and curiosity to having a fresh tree in the
house, along with the lights and all of the
decorations. My entire family loves Kringle,
and I want to thank you from the bottom of my
heart for him. (I attached a couple of pictures
for you to see.)
I hope this message finds you and your family
well. I thought you might like to see some new
pictures of the cats. I can't believe it has
now been a year since I brought them home. They
are the most healthy, loving and beautiful cats.
Eleanor has quite a personality, and she is
so affectionate. As soon as I walk into a room,
she runs in front of me and lays on her back
for me to rub her belly! I have never seen anything
like it! Rigby is very attached to my daughter
and sleeps with her every night. We recently
also adopted a dog, Sadie, and her and Rigby
are the best of friends. When he's not with
my daughter, he's in Sadie's crate snuggled
up with her. Eleanor of course, is the queen
of the house!
I can't thank you enough for the care and love
you gave to the kitties. They are most definitely
a product of a happy home. Have a wonderful
Keith & Tracie
We just wanted to send along a note to let you
know what a blessing Bear and Brooke
have been to us. They are the absolute best
of friends to each other. They play and sleep
together and if one is around you know the other
isnt far behind. We hope you enjoy the
pictures. These are Koreys kittens July
2011 a tortie girl and seal point boy.
All the best,
Rich and Anne Sigg
Just sending you a note on our new kitten,
Mr. Snowball Fluffypants, (named by my daughter)
is doing great. He is an absolute joy to have
around the house! What an outgoing personality
this little kitten has. He greets all visitors
at the door and demands their attention (even
strangers!). He has the run of the house now
and enjoys following us wherever we go. At night
he also enjoys cat naps on my chest while I
lay on the couch and watch TV. My daughter enjoys
playing with him as he chases her around the
house while she pulls a mouse on a string. Lots
of cuddling, playing and purring...I would say
he is very happy at his new home. I will send
some photos in a few months as he grows.
Hi this is Melissa Kaplan, we purchased our
Mia from you in 2010.
I just wanted to let you know that Mia is the
most special family member. She is so loved
and as you can see in the picture her favorite
is my daughter Zoe.
Thank you for providing this joy to us. The
Hope all is well and you are enjoying Spring.
Furby is a real delight. He is growing by leaps
and bounds, and Barbara thinks he is already
Zoe's size. He was just 6 mos. and is a big
I really am amazed at how sweet and lovable
he is. Everyone loves him, and he makes himself
comfortable with anyone that visits. He is so
handsome with his snow white fur and flame points.
I am never bored, he is active, talkative, and
keeps me on the move.
I am thoroughly surprised on how much more social
and cuddly he is compared to my Shalimar. Shalimar
was more aloof and not as friendly.
Thank you so much for such an absolutely wonderful
Karen (Furby too!)
Hi Joan! I bought a beautiful Himalayan from
you named Bode or "Beaudie"
His litter mate was a cat you were going to
keep and name Kasper! I love my boy! Here are
two pics of him ... the first taken about 3
years ago and the one with the leopard pillow
behind him was taken 6 months ago (he is my
best friend) ..."Comes to me each morning
when I am in the kitchen doing chores... taps
me to come sit with him on the couch in the
living room for petting and combing" Glad
to see you are still breeding ... Bode's best
friend is Miki, another Sealpoint himalayan...now
15 years of age... someday I hope not too soon
I will be back for a new friend for Bode...
Here's another photo of Kona, our seal girl
from the June 10, 2012 litter. She is so sweet
and loving, she jumps up on our lap, gets as
close as she can to our face and then pushes
her head down into our neck.
Look at those eyes, ice like, amazing!
She lets me photograph her, she's a ham.
Our blue girl is camera shy, I never get good
photos of her.
Thor and Frodo....sleeping.
Such cute sweet kitties!! We love them so very,
Hope all is well. Thank you again for the two
best little sweet peas in the world. xo
We are thinking about naming the cute little
guy, O'Malley. He is adapting quickly and has
decided that he wants to sleep with us. He snuggles
up in the down comforter and looks totally at
I attached a pic for you that I took tonight
with my cell phone. I will upload some from
my camera soon.
He is adorable and has brought a lot of joy
to our home. Thanks for raising such a loving,
Just wanted to send you the latest photo of
All is well and we just love the little fella.
I just wanted to send you a quick message and
let you know that our precious Cannoli has been
a blessing to our family. I didn't know how
things would be having another cat in our house
and how we would transition into having a male
cat. He is so unique. He is huge. Weighing in
pounds. He has the largest paws ever.. He gets
along so well with our little dog and Bella,
our chocolate himalayan. He is so talkative.
He loves laying on his back. Too fun, I can't
believe he turns a year old today! We just Love
him so much!!
Just wanted to send you some pictures of him.
Thank you so much for choosing us to make our
home his forever home!!
After his bath. Not too happy!
It's my birthday!! I am 1 year old today!
Thought I'd send you a couple of recent pics
of Chloe! Love love LOVE her!! She's a beauty!
Can't wait for Krystal or Koko's next litter!!
See you soon, Janine and Annamarie
Just had to tell you how very much I LOVE Lalita...she

Happy Thanksgiving and we just wanted to update
you on our wonderful new baby.
He is growing up beautifully and is a curious
little imp. He gets along with Lulu our cat
and delights in chasing our mini Labradoodle
Every day is made more enjoyable watching him
explore and learn new ways to make us love him
Just a short note to wish you and your husband
a warm and wonderful holiday season. Here are
a couple of pictures of Fiona (seal pointe)
and Francine (blue pointe). They are both doing
so well - happy and healthy. We are truly blessed.

Hi Joan -
It's been just over a week since we brought
Baby Kozey home. Her new name is Lady George,
but we call her Gigi. She has settled into a
nice routine. She is a good eater, and literally
plays for hours before collapsing next to Stella.
Attached is a picture. She is incredibly sweet
- she loves to snuggle in with AJ and I under
the covers, purring away. It took a few days,
but she and Lady James (Puff) are playing together
nicely. They sound like a herd of elephants
running up and down the stairs. They don't sleep
together yet, but I'm sure that's coming as
well. Having dealt with other breeders in the
past, I can't say enough good things about you
and the kittens you're raising.
Thanks so much, Joan!
Jennifer and AJ
I just wanted to thank you again for our lovely
Julius. He is a bundle of joy. He loves to be
brushed and pampered! Here is his 1st birthday
O'Malley is 1 today. So hard to believe. He
is such a sweet, beautiful boy who adds joy
to our lives daily.
We can't believe Luke and Leia are almost 10
months old. They are getting so big and are
the loves of our lives!
These photos were taken in May when the kittens
were 8 months old. They are bigger and fluffier
now!! They have distinct meows so we know exactly
who's talking when we are in different rooms.
Their personalities are so different and so
big. Luke continues to be a love bug. Sleeping
all night on our heads and loves to be held.
But he's getting heavy, haha. Leia, has become
an independent beauty AND she wants everyone
to know how beautiful she is when she sits high
on her condo or the back of a big chair we have.
With a little squeak meow she says, "Look
at me!" Under her puffy, fluffy fur she
is tiny and has picked up the name, "Baby
The two play fiercely together, running around
like lunatics every night from 10:30 PM to midnight
until they pass out in bed with Kevin and I.
Snuggling tight. Purring loudly. And often sleeping
on their backs with their paws in the air. Hysterical!!!
Thank you for helping bring Luke and Leia to
And this is their cousin Josetta as well!!
We called this photo shoot "Josie and
the Pussy Cats"
Tina & Kevin Mc Kearney
Thought you would appreciate a picture of our
precious baby...still a kitten at 3!
Passing along a few photos of the girls. They
are now two and just too cute for words. Very
loving. Our seal girl is HUGE. Heather McCarty
Look how gorgeous my little boy Lucky is! We
love him beyond words! He is always Hima"layin"
around! Haha..hope all is well with you!
Hi Joan - It's Kathleen O'Donnell. First of
all I have to say thank you, thank you, thank
you for the most amazing kitten in the world!!!!
This little girl of ours (Princess Fiona or
FiFi for short!) actually seems
too good to be true!!!! She is such a huge part
of our family and just so loved and adored by
everyone of us. She is always right in the center
of the action no matter what we are doing, she
never, ever prefers to hide off by herself-
she just wants to be wherever we are. She also
loves to lay on the toilet (I make her a comfy
bed with the towels) and she hangs out with
me when I take a bath!!!! To say I'm in love
with her is an understatement!!!
I was hoping you could suggest a product - or
what you use on your cats- for cleaning out
under her eyes? She is so good about letting
me do it, but the wipes I'm using don't seem
to be working too well and sometimes the food
gets yucky under there when she eats a certain
brand of wet food she loves.
Thanks again Joan ~ your cats really are something
How are you? Hope all is well. I know its
been awhile, but I wanted to share a picture
of our beautiful Sami with you and show you
how great she is.
Her and Reyna play like sisters, we love it.
Sami is still the talker and we wouldnt
have it any other way and health wise, she is
great as well.
Its amazing how the time goes and that
weve had Sami for a little over two (2)
years now. There isnt a person who doesnt
come into our home without complimenting how
beautiful she is, so of course I tell them of
Anyway, didnt want to keep you long just
wanted to give a quick update on Sami and send
Have a Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday season.
All the best,
They are doing sooo well!!! She is beautiful
and into everything, on the table trying to
join our meals and so purry but not as affectionate
He is really handsome now, fur is in and he
is getting sooo big, think he weighs more than
Lulu. He is the complete package of affection
They are nuts together chasing, jumping, playing,
grooming each other ...but most of all I am
so happy we got two to keep each other company!!!
We have bathed them, clipped them, and I groom
them daily. Andie will be starting allergy shots
because she is sooo allergic and her asthma
flares up, but of course I find them on her
bed snuggling daily while she does her homework!
We are all in love with them...
Hope all is well with you and your family.
I just wanted to send you a picture of Luna,
who turns two soon. She and Delilah are doing
great (Kozette's babies). The household lost
2 kitties this past year, so having them has
made this difficult time a little easier to
Delilah is sweet and loves to talk. Luna is
the happiest cat I've ever met. She's always
purring and loves to snuggle.
Enjoy this holiday season!
How are you?? I just wanted to let you know
that my love "Zoe" will be 4 years
old next month (on March 24th).
I can't believe it. It does not seem that long
ago when I came to your house and picked her
I want to thank you again for the sweetest
and very loving cat. I love Zoe so much.
How are your mother cats and kittens doing?.
I have not seen any new kittens on your website
since Sept. 2014. I can't help myself, I look
every day at your website to see the beautiful
kittens. I see that you have a couple of new
If you are ever down here again, please call
me and come and see Zoe and me.
Hi Joan, We celebrated Buddy's 9th birthday
on Wednesday .... We had lost our first chihuahua
after 15 years this past year 2014: (after months
we noticed that Buddy was acting strange and
his behavior wasn't the same, how strange that
a pet can feel a loss like we can)... It was
very hard for us to get another puppy, with
the kids as well upset we went and got another
little one. Enclosed you will see both of them
by the fire this past week... They're always
playing together like if they knew each other...
Buddy's getting back to himself slowly.... Hope
you like the pics...... Joanne
We are so in love with our Sofi. I've attached
a recent picture- isn't she beautiful? She looks
a lot like her dad, Kona, and has a big fluffy
plume of a tail.
She is a wonderful little girl, very loving
and fun. She is smart, always coming when she's
called, although she's rarely left behind. You
were so right, she always wants to be with us.
She and Mimi, our other cat, are getting along
Thank you so much for her. I hope you and all
of the other kitties are doing well.
ps. always checking the website for new babies.
We adopted our precious Sebastian 12 years
ago and he is an absolute joy in every way.
I wanted to attach some pictures of him because
I stumbled across your website the other day
and I was struck by how much he looks like his
We have recently lost our dog, who Sebastian
grew up with, and we were thinking about adopting
a kitten friend for him. Do you have any litters
Thanks and I hope you enjoy the pics of our
Good morning, Joan,
It's Ellen here from Clifton Park, NY. Mark
and I purchased Robie from you back in December.
He was one of Kassandra's kittens from her litter
born September 22, 2014.
We just wanted to tell you what a wonderful
boy he is! He LOVES all the other cats, and
is just about the sweetest kitty in the world.
He is a purring factory and loves to play and
play until he falls asleep from exhaustion!
We could not be more pleased.
I just wanted you to know how much we love
him, and how he has enhanced our lives as well
as the lives of our other kitties. The transition
in bringing him home was easy, because of his
beautiful disposition. I hope all is well with
you-- I saw some more beautiful babies from
your recent litters..if only we had room for
one more! We are good at six, for now.
Take care and enjoy your spring!
Mark and Ellen
Clifton Park, NY
Here is Olive and she is soo smart, intuitive
and adorable. Great companion love her so much.
She has a sister Emily, the dear heart chinchilla
sliver Persian that I spoke about. We have had
Emily for two weeks so we are adjusting but
they do love each other already.
Well it has been one year, so today, May 14
it is Merlin's birthday!! The son of Kuddles
and Kassandra, whom I picked up last August
1, 2014, has grown up to be a wonderful addition
to my home! Along with Rupert and Nimue, my
female, he has blended in seamlessly! He is
robust, mischievous, sweet, obedient, adventurous,
clever, intelligent, full of constant energy,
and loves me dearly! His maturity at such a
young age is remarkable as well as his unusual
disposition which I have to say is quite charming!
He respects and loves my 17 year old Nimue and
sleeps near her at night. He is so playful with
three-year old Rupert and they are incredible
buddies. They are playing constantly and Rupert
even licks his head!
I had him neutered after seven months old and
he acted like nothing happened, since he was
raring to go when I brought him home!
He is currently 10 lbs. and is fully grown.
I have included some photographs of him and
his two friends. I have been extremely pleased
with Merlin and am grateful that I found your
cattery. I remembered that you said that Kuddles
was 14 when he sired Merlin but I was unsure
of how old Kassandra was at the time
of her litter that produced Merlin. Was she
four years old? I know that Kuddles was to be
neutered the next week after I picked up Merlin,
so I am assuming that Merlin is from the last
litter Kuddles sired.
Merlin is incredible!
Thank you again for having such a wonderful
cattery and such wonderful cats!!
Hoboken, New Jersey
Happy New Year to you and your family! Hope
all is well with you and all of the beautiful
kitties. Kona is coming up on a year old and
is doing great. She has calmed down quite a
bit, but still loves to be in the center of
everything. I have been teaching her to "talk"
and it's pretty funny. If I meow at her, she
meows right back, and we carry on a "conversation"
back and forth. She won't do it with anyone
else but me though!
My oldest cat is not doing well at all, lots
of congestion and coughing even though her lungs
are clear and heart seems ok. I am so sad to
see her this way, but do realize that she is
almost 18. On the other hand she still seems
happy and is eating well, so maybe this will
Love seeing all of the new kittens on your
web page, makes me want a few more (!!)
Just wanted to give you an update on the kittens.
Lele is the blue point. He is big, his paws
are huge! He plays non stop. His favorite relaxing
position is flat on his back with legs spread.
He follows mom everywhere. Usually with his
favorite toy in his mouth. His fur is so thick
and beautiful. He loves being held, having his
Loki is the seal. He is the most social cat
I've ever seen. He's a bit smaller in size.
Just as playful. But he's not too happy being
held compared to Lele who could be held all
day long and love it. Loki also follows mom
every where...his fur is also beautiful and
Both kittens were neutered on November 10th.
They are playing and eating well. Using the
litter box with no problems. Being as social
as ever. My mom just loves these cats..she is
Thank you Joan!
we are celebrating Peppermint's first birthday.
He is such a joy for Steve and I. Pepper and
Pebbles (who is now 3) are great friends and
play together nicely. Peppermint has a beautiful
coat and a gorgeous tail. He keeps us entertained
with his fun personality and manages to be the
center of attention whenever we have company.
Thank you for the two best kitties. They are
both so healthy and loving. Pepper enjoys his
belly rubs and Pebbles enjoys being petted each
Thank you again for breeding the most precious
kittens. Happy New Year to you and all your
Steve and Thelma Weeks
Here is an update on your Sealpoint Male that
I purchased from you! He's amazing and getting
big. The greatest personality and has completely
bonded with our Brussels Griffon, Leila! So
I hope you had a great Christmas. This was our
first year without a tree - Gigi girl simply
wouldn't allow it to happen. I have never seen
a cat get into more things that she shouldn't
- one of her nicknames is trouble with a capital
G. She certainly enjoyed her first Christmas
- she was definitely spoiled. Since today is
her first birthday, I thought I'd share a few
pictures. She is a beautiful cat, but don't
let the sweet face fool you. Like I said, she's
nothing but trouble. But in the best possible
way. Unless it's 3am and she's intentionally
knocking things down around the house or torturing
poor Puff. One of her favorite games is to wait
until Puff is falling asleep and then jump on
her to wake her up. They get along really well,
as much as Puff would like to deny it. Gigi
is a real character. Still loves to snuggle
under the blankets with us and our pug everyday
and is generally underfoot wherever we are in
the house. I hope all is well with you and all
of those gorgeous creatures you are lucky enough
to share your home with.
Wishing you all the best this new year-
Jennifer and AJ
Merry Christmas, Joan. Just a quick note to
say our kitty is a super sweet, beautiful boy.
We love him.
Hi Joan I wanted to let you know that Willow
is doing so well and we love having her part
of our family.
Thank you, Donna Grazia.
Ps she and Dakota are true buddies!!
Just sending a picture of Jax and Cocoa at 7
months old. Can't tell you how much joy these
two precious babies bring us. If I didn't know
better, I would swear they are dogs in a cat's
Jax is really starting to develop some color
all through his coat and Cocoa well the chocolate
colors are getting darker.They are very healthy
and very loved by us all.
Hope all is well with you and all your kitties.
I will send a picture when they are 1 year old.
Take care -- Emma--
Life has been very busy but I just wanted you
to see what a handsome devil our boy has become.
My husband swears he has never seen any of our
pets with such a remarkable personality as our
morning Ms. Joan,
I hope this email finds you well. I wanted
to get your opinion as a breeder on adding a
kitten to ones home. Kevin and I are so
in love with Cotton (the bluepoint male) that
you sold us. When we purchased him we thought
of buying two kittens but thought it would be
best to start out with one kitten. We really
regret not purchasing one of his siblings. His
brother, the little blue and white Persian male
was so adorable, every time I look at the picture
on your website of the two of them together
it makes me wish we purchased two. The topic
if adding an additional kitten to our home has
come up several times. I wanted to get your
How do you think Cotton will react to an additional
As I mentioned we have contemplated adding one
but are hesitant. Cotton is such a dream kitten
that we would hate for him to dislike the new
kitten and his personality change. This is our
only reason for not purchasing one at this point.
On the two days that we both work outside of
the home, he is waiting by the door for us when
we get home. I like to think it is because he
misses his mommy, but I would hate to think
it is because he is lonely/bored during the
day. Your thoughts on this?
Would you have any kittens coming up soon?
Any of the Persians like his litter? My husband
loves the blue point coloring but I think he
would probably ideally like a different color.
He loved the blue and white Persian coloring
of his brother.
I apologize for the delay. Enclosed are a few
of my favorite pictures of Cotton. I have loads
of videos of him if you ever would like to see
him in action.
We are delighted that Oscar is a part of our
family! My only concern is that he loves Noelle
more than me!
I have attached a photo of him for you, he
certainly has made himself at home.
All the best,
Happy holidays from Seattle!
Hope all is well with you and the kitties.
Thought you'd like to see a picture of little
Xiao Mei - here she is playing with her house-mate
The kitty cube masks Zelda's size somewhat,
but they are getting along fine. Xiao Mei is
such a sweet and outgoing kitty! It's obvious
she was raised well, with lots of love.
She goes in for her rabies shot at the end
of this month.
Hope you are doing well. Looks like you have
many adorable kittens currently- love the seal
boys- but I guess I am partial now.??
Been about a year since we picked up Benny-
thought I'd check in. He is a very special boy.
We think he thinks he is a dog. He is sweeter
than sweet and beautiful too!
Thanks again. Have a happy, healthy Christmas
and New Year!
Melanie & Alexa
Just wanted to thank you for our beautiful Himalayan
girl. We love her so much...We named her Sasha
and she changes everyday. She is lovable, funny,
and loves to be carried around like a baby...she
is 5.5 lbs. Sasha is such a great cat! She is
so sweet, playful, vocal...everything in one
package. We just love watching her colors change.
We say she is like a box of chocolates...LOL.
Looking forward to seeing you when we are
ready to give her a playmate... Have a fantastic
Holiday and thanks again for this beauty!
Diane, Rob, & Sasha
How are you doing? I'm sure just fine with all
your kitties. You had asked me at one time to
send you a picture of Zoe when she was full
Well, she's just about a year now (her first
birthday is right around the corner, 7/2). Here's
a pretty good photo of her. She loves - I should
have capped that for emphasis - LOVES her toys.
She brings them into my bed at all hours always
eager to play. She's quite a character. She
loves her Bailey (my other kit-kat), too. They
really are inseparable. I love her so much -
as I told you, I knew in my heart when I found
your website that I was meant to get a kitty
Bellissima Elisa and I send you our best wishes
for this New Year! May peace, joy and abundance
fill your kind heart and warm home always.
Here is a picture of Bella before she put her
winter coat on. Enjoy! Amore mio is so giving
and smart, truly a joy to live with at any given
Elisas new passion is a game made out
of silk paper and soft ribbons. A ribbon slowly
moves around or under a pile of wrinkled silk
paper until Bella jumps, paddles and lays on
After her restful nap, Elisa likes to be rocked
in my arms. There Bella may put her delicate
nose against the end of my long one, and offers
me a gentle wet kiss while staring intensely
in my eyes. My heart melted many times and I
loved those moments unconditionally!
Your website is so inspiring. One can breathe
love only. Thank you for your dedicated work
of love and the many gifts you generously offer
to all of us.
I hope you are well. Wanted to give you an update
on how Lucy is doing. She is growing by leaps
and bounds, having put on 1 lb. already!
She is quite the character as you said, very
bright, fast and determined. She and Lily are
not best friends yet and I have been taking
their introduction accordingly as Lily is a
bit overwhelmed by the force of Lucy's playfulness.
Lucy is very lovable, sweet and healthy and
follows me around like a puppy. She was quite
the star at the vet's office when we went for
her checkup and shot.
All the best
Hope all is well at the cattery. Lily and Oliver
at 1 year old. Such adorable companions, wherever
you see one you see the other.
Lily is the mischievous one and Oliver always
her look out.
I can't tell you how much I love my little
guys, as a single woman they are great companions
and snuggle bugs.
Thank you Joan...
Hi Joan, Buddy turned 10 yesterday
on the 25th we are so happy to have him, he
is such a good cat. Our first Himalayan lived
only to be 9 years old, so we were kind of glad
this year went by and he's still in good shape....
Just wanted to send you an updated pic.... Talk
to you soon. Joanne
It was so nice chatting with you yesterday.
I have attached a few pictures of Martini to
see what a beautiful kitty that we are so fortunate
to have living in our home.
When I see him sleeping on the bed in the supine
position, I tell Bob he will not be looking
to be adopted by another family. He is the light
of my day. The sweetest, kindest cat I have
With that, my girlfriend Terese would be a
wonderful parent to one of your kittens. As
stated her Himalayan passed away recently and
she would love another Himalayan. I can tell
you with complete honesty, any kitten that made
her home with Terese would be spoiled, coddled,
loved, happy and secure for many years.
Thanks so much Joan and I am so glad that you
are doing well. I hope to be the mother to another
one your cats in the future, maybe one of Martini's
It's Bernadette Nejman wanted to send you a
pic of Khloe with her Easter bunny friends!
She is 2 & 1/2 now! She is a pleasure to
I see her mother Khloe is retired.
She is just as beautiful as her mother!
I'm not sure if you remember me, but my husband
Wes and I were clients of yours back in 2006.
We bought one of Kallie's kittens, a blue point
Himalayan - who we absolutely adore. Her name
is Jessica (I've
attached photos as she's grown) and she has
been the love of my life. I have shared with
my fellow cat loving friends the great experience
we had with you. I was so impressed in your
cattery and Jessica has grown into a loving
and wonderful kitty. At the time we came to
you, we had just lost our first Persian kitty,
Samantha after 18 years and you were so understanding.
Jess has been a perfect addition to our family.
Unfortunately, Heather our other adult Persian
when we brought Jess home is beginning to decline
(she's just about to turn 19). We've spoken
to our vet and we know the time will be growing
near, which as you know can be so difficult.
Wes and I would like to talk to you about kitten
options as I know the season for new litters
will be coming up.
I'll give you a call this week as I'd love
to hear how things have been going on your end.
Look forward in talking with you soon.
I thought I would send you an updated picture
of Bella. She is so wonderful. I can not believe
what a great personality she has. Even as I
write this, she is sitting here with me "helping".
We are definitely interested in another kitty.
We are set on having another female and the
chocolate color would be really nice, but of
course the blue would be fine as well. How does
the transition usually go in adding a new kitty?
Bella did great with my mom's dog, Bonita. They
are really cute together. Hope you are enjoying
your summer and that gorgeous pool!!!
Hi Joan: Do you recognize this cat?? She is
Lola and her boyfriend! I thought you would
enjoy seeing them together-they really love
each other. She has given Hitchcock a new lease
on life!! Hope all is well with you and you're
enjoying this amazing weather! Judy Levy
Hi Joan, I just wanted to touch base with you
and let you know that our new kitten (who we
named Gemma) is doing great! She is the sweetest
little girl, and we have quite the bond! She
is very happy and is always playing or hanging
out with us. We love her so much that we may
want to get another kitten at some point (thinking
of a seal point possibly) to add to our family.
I hope you and your family are doing great,
and thank you again for this wonderful kitten!
I've attached some pictures of her.
Best regards, Lisa Spivey
Hope this e-mail finds you well. I was looking
for you on facebook but was delighted to have
stumbled upon your website. I was so fortunate
to have found you in 2004 when my brother and
I met you and added Cosette to our family.
Despite her being a 'Father's Day' gift for
my husband (red bow around her neck and presented
in a shoe box), she is MY little shadow. You
were right--she follows me all over the house
and comes down when I come home from a stressful
day at work.
She has brought an enormous amount of unconditional
love to our hearts. She continues to also worship
our other little love, Jules, our tuxedo cat.
They both tolerate me when I dress them up on
occasion and look adorable! I often think of
you and smile, as I am so grateful for my fluffy
ball of love, Cosette.
PS-check out their Christmas debut!
Happy New Year, Joan! I hope the
holidays treated you well. Just wanted to share
a few pictures of our Gigi. She will be two
tomorrow and has grown into a big, beautiful
girl. She is still a sweet girl who loves everyone.
She is a bit of a troublemaker with our other
cat and our dog, but you can't get mad at such
a cute face! Everyone mentions her personality
and how social she is. You truly are breeding
the best cats.
Best - Jennifer and AJ
Happy Mother's Day to you and Annie's mom.
Annie Noel is doing great. She is the love of
our lives. She loves to play fetch with her
ball-she is too much. Annie is so awesome and
My cousin Barbara asked me one day if my dad,
her uncle loves Annie. I told her that you don't
even know. I love her so much, too.
She is eating good and loves to play. The only
thing is she doesn't like to be brushed. We
are working on it. She is a beautiful girl and
we are so thankful for her. Aileen
Below are photos to share in your gallery.
Alexander Zane & Angelina Noel (three years
difference in age) parents are Karistakats -
Kozette & Kuddles.
Alexander is our 3 year old male Chocolate
point he is perfect and so stunning (its
nice to see him as a kitten & young adult).
He has his moms color, his dads
Angelina has her dads color & coat
and her moms personality. Angelina is
equally stunning, loving, beautiful and quite
the princess. She struts her stuff with her
beautiful tail flowing gracefully in the air.
She growls at her brother when she wants to
play and she flies through the air to sneak
attack him. Its cute as he weighs 2 more
pounds than her. They are the perfect brother
Thank you so much for being the very best at
raising such perfect Himalayans.
I will be connecting with you in the future.
Katness is stunningly gorgeous and either Kuddles
or Kimba (when hes of age) could possibly
create impressive kittens.
I hope all is well with Kozette as I dont
see her mentioned anymore. I love her &
Kuddles' kittens as she is such a loving mother
and is a beautiful female Chocolate Point. Janet
I thought you might enjoy this photo of Kipling
- just like his big sister Sofiya, he loves
Kip is sweet as can be and as you can see,
getting more handsome by the day. He and Sofi
are inseparable, playing together constantly
and trading off for the highest spot on the
cat tree for naps.
And, Mimi is now very grateful for a little
peace and quiet.
Hope all is well with you and the kitties.
Good Morning Joan,
I took this picture of Rocco over the weekend.
I wanted to share it with you because he's so
stinking cute!! We are really loving him here
he's so funny to watch him being curious.
The ladies at the vet go crazy for him. As soon
as we get there they all want to hold him.
Thank you so much for letting us adopt this
sweet boy. He is such a joy!
Good morning Joan,
Just wanted to circle around with you and share
how our little doll (Riley) is doing. She is
Smart, playful, eating well and growing, she
is very loving. Whenever touched or picked up,
"her motor" turns on with the sweetest
purr. Remarkably, she and Paige (our 3 year
old Persian) are best friends already!!! I cannot
believe it all happened so soon. Riley idolizes
Paige following her all around and encouraging
her to play
which they do daily.
Below are some pics... thanks again for the
Les and Rose
Greg and I can't believe Cocoa is 5 years old
today!! She has just been such a joy in our
lives and a good little traveler, on the airplane
when we go to Florida for 4 months. No drugs
just a lot of meowing until we get to the airport
and then not a peep on the plane. In front of
me under the seat just content! Thank you for
bringing her into our lives and here are some
Hope all is well and have a great summer.
Lisa and Greg Blair
Im not sure if you remember me or not,
my husband Jeff and I had gotten our wonderful
cat, Pepper, from you about 7 years ago. We
have since had a child, and moved out of state.
Im contacting you because our daughter,
who absolutely adores Pepper (as you can see
by the photos below) has asked if we could get
a kitten. She would like one, but she also would
like Pepper to have a companion while we are
all away at school and work.
My questions are:
||Pepper is 7 and has been the
only cat for quite a while, how would she
react to a new kitten in the house?
||Is there a certain breed we
should be looking at (would another Himalayan
||Since Pepper is a female,
should we be looking for a male or female?
We are just in the initial stages of thinking
about this and I wanted to get your expert
advice before we proceed.
Thank you so much! I hope this message finds
you doing well, and I look forward to hearing
I have been meaning to write you.
I just want to tell you how much we all love
Felix. He has an amazing personality! We actually
took him for a week long boat trip this summer
because we didn't want to leave him and also
because we knew he
would be great. He adapted to the boat quickly.
He's very sociable with everyone who comes through
our front door.
I give you all the credit to his upbringing.
You really do a magnificent job with your babies.
I frequently browse your website to see the
new kitties that you have. I'm sure you will
see us in the future.
Thank you for our Felix!
I hope all is well.
Daphne is so sweet, I'm so grateful for her!
She's so cuddly and playful and is my shadow!
Thank you so much!
Happy Halloween, attaching a few photos of our
2 girls from your May/June 2012 litters. Fresh

cuts" thanks to Sam at "The Main Lion"

I hope you are well! Your new kittens on your
site are gorgeous. Congratulations once again
for your 2016 award! Clicquot is adorable, amazing
to my daughter Sydney and our entire family.
She is happy and healthy and loves retrieving
toys. She is most attentive to our daughter
and tries to hide in her bedroom at bedtime
so she can spend the night with her! She's adorable
and we're all so very happy together. You make
fantastic kitties! Here is our certificate of
spay as promised.
Danielle, Marc and Sydney Kalman
We are LOVING our kitten. She's got the best
personality and is so beautiful. I can't even
get over how loved she is. My kids each called
her their best friend today.
With Christmas coming, we were thinking about
maybe getting another. Do you by chance have
any more kittens or any on the way?
Hope you are well-
Just showing off handsome Naveed. Oh, is he
the sweetest thing going.
Misako and he cuddle together and sleep up against
each other all the time in the Gallery and at
They are Milford's biggest hit and known far
and wide around this town.
If I had a nickel for every person that comes
in on Saturdays to the Gallery just to visit
Misako and Naveed, David and I could fly to
the Caribbean for a week all expenses paid.
Naveed is now 7 months old. If he was born at
the end of April (I think the 28th) should he
be neutered at 8 or 9 months old? Older? I'm
in no hurry just thinking about it.
The two of them are so special to us.
Hope this finds you well.
In appreciation~ Marcia
Hi Joan: OH my gosh! I've been looking
for your email all over the place and
happen to stumble upon it today. How
have you been? Its been years.
Just to let you know, NICHOLAS is doing
AWESOME. He will be celebrating his
9th Birthday on 12/24
He is the most lovable, precious kitty
ever. He lives with my mom being she
is retired and she spends a lot of time
with him. He is so attached to her.
I wish you could see how he responds
to my mother. She actually calls him
by name and he gets up from wherever
he is and comes to her, sits with her.
I will send you pix. Nicholas has the
BEST life. His stocking is hung, filled
with treats and toys.
Picking up balloons for him tomorrow
as his birthday and Christmas are a
I just love this kitty to pieces! He
is a happy, healthy boy and is loving
WISHING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY A MERRY
CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR
This is Monica, my husband Tony and
I purchased a Seal Point Himalayan kitten
from you a little over a year ago.
ended up naming him Meeko
after the curious raccoon in the Pocahontas
and it sure does suit
We often walk into our bathroom to see
he has knocked over our small garbage
can and rummaged through it to see if
there was anything good in there to
play with. Too funny. He is very playful
and loves to hunt pretend mice and feathers.
He is a pretty independent kitty, he
likes to be close to us at all times
but not necessarily right in your lap.
He sleeps at the end of the bed every
night and as soon as he hears a peep
hes right in our arms ready for
his morning cuddles (the only time he
allows us to cuddle him lol) I cant
thank you enough for bringing him into
We dont have any kids yet and
he is our baby. I tell Tony all the
time that I knew I would love him before
we got him but I had no idea I would
love him THIS much. He brings both of
us so much happiness.
I put a picture of him amongst some
Christmas presents below. He grew up
to be a very handsome boy. I also wanted
to let you know that he has some short
video clips up on YouTube if you would
like to take a look at them. If you
go to www.youtube.com
and type in the search bar that
freaky meeky the channel will
Anyway, thank you again! We looooooove
him so very much.
Monica & Tony
Just wanted to say hope you had a nice
Christmas and Happy New Year.
Annie Noel is doing great. She is such
In the morning she lays next to me and
She is so awesome and perfect.
We love her more and more each day.
Thank you and take care.
I hope you are doing well!
Can't believe it's already been two
years since we got the Bluepoint Himalayan
from you and fell in love with him!!
No idea where the time
has gone, but just wanted to drop you
a note to let you know Meeko is doing
very well and is the most loved/spoiled
cat ever! He's super social (follows
me everywhere), incredibly curious,
affectionate and even has a spot in
bed that he sleeps next to me every
Thought you might enjoy some photos
from the past year... I just love this
little guy so much - thanks again for
Happy holidays to you!
Ashley and Meeko
Finnigan is the son of Mr. Kuddles & Kiwi.
He looks just like his mom whom my daughter
still remembers. Finnigan just turned 12 on
January 28th. He is absolutely spoiled &
the love of all our lives. My children are both
away at college & every night I send them
a new/good night picture of Finny. I think they
miss him more then anyone else. When they leave
they hate saying goodbye & when they return
its always a happy reunion. My kids think I'm
a "crazy cat lady" & I totally
agree. I'm obsessed with him as is my husband
who was never a big cat fan. It looks like your
still breeding & selling kittens??? My kids
would love a new kitten to keep Finny company
but he is King of the house so I'm afraid it
would upset him & change his personality.
I don't want to upset him. Would love your opinion.
Thank you & look forward to hearing from
Just wanted to let you know Sophie is doing
wonderful. She is such a happy little girl!!!
We just love her so much!! She yells so adorably
to be picked up and loves to snuggle.
The girls are doing wonderfully with her and
Sophie sure does love them. I wanted to send
this picture of her.
She loves her new bed we bought her and I thought
it was so cute! Thank you Joan for such a wonderful,
loving and sweet kitty!!
I stopped by my parents home on Sunday
to visit and see their new kitten Moxie".
She is absolutely adorable! They are so happy
to have her in the family.
Here are some pictures we took. Thank you again
for all of your support, you have truly helped
to make a huge impact on my parents lives
with this kitten. We will keep in touch, and
I am sure my wife Tina and I will be reaching
out to you in the future to get another kitten
of our own.
I just want to send you a picture of our chocolate
girl Coco. She is growing up fast, and brings
me such joy and love everyday! Best, Mimi
Hello Joan, Guess who turned 11 yesterday!!!!
Yes Buddy, this is him Christmas 2016 and yesterday
watching the birds on the chair which he loves
to do everyday.. I can't believe how time flys
by... Like always he's such a good boy ... Til
next year have a great summer and rest of the
year........ Love Joanne and Buddy 2017
Just wanted to send a photo of Kendall.
He is absolutely the sweetest kitten. Heading
on 8 months now, extremely a mommy 's boy.
I want you to know I Love him very, very much.
He is obsessed with my face, lips. In my arms
around dinner time taking a nap, and is always
laying on his back.
I could squeeze him I Love him that much.
Thank you for giving him a very loving home.
Danny and I want to thank you for giving us
the best gifts that compliment our family. All
of our children are treated like royalty with
unconditional love and support. All of them
get along so well and love each other. Delilah
is the protector, Gracie is the nurturing caregiver,
Adonis is the rambunctious brother and Noah
is the baby of the house. Feel free to use any
of the pictures on your website.
Love, Matt and Danny
Happy Spring..just wanted to give you a update
on the kitten.
Finley and Sasha are getting along just fine
now, it went exactly as you said it would.
He is the sweetest little boy. We wanted to
thank you again for bringing them into our world.
This is Regina and Tom. I just wanted to let
you know that the kitten is doing absolutely
wonderful! She is getting along great with my
Persian better than I ever expected. From day
one she seemed to be 100% comfortable here and
we could not be happier with her! I just want
to thank you again for everything. I attached
some pictures for you to see her.
I hope this email finds you well.
With Olivers birthday being yesterday,
thought it was time for an update! He is doing
great and such a love. My husband does feel
slighted as he is definitely a mamas boy
at least for now. He does this delightful
chirp vocal we were hoping he wouldnt
outgrow it he didnt. I can mimic
the sound perfectly and when I do it he comes
running. He loves being under the covers, but
has stopped sleeping on the bed with the warmer
weather and prefers his numerous window seats
in the house.
We absolutely adore him and are so glad that
he is happy, healthy and doting (at least on
me!). Thank you again! This is a picture taken
on Fathers day he loves the box
my husbands shoe gift came in (and yes,
the hat is photoshopd in, lol)
All the best, Judy
I hope this finds you well.
I was contemplating getting a second cat so
Leo would have a friend. Might you have any
kittens available? Perhaps we might catch up
by phone? I hope you're doing well.
A picture of Leo is attached. He is very handsome!!!
Beautiful coat. He has been a really wonderful
Good morning Joan. This is Richard
Gorba. I just wanted to share Sir Biscuit 6
month pics (dob 11-4-2016). He is a perfect
kitty. Everything you said he would be.
Greg and I can't believe it has been 6 years
since we brought home Cocoa. Today is her birthday
and we love and adore every minute with her.
She still thinks she is a kitten????
Lisa and Greg Blair
Hope everything is going well for you. Can't
believe my baby is 1 already! We just love him.
He is sooooo sweet! His tail is so fluffy
How do you wean your kittens off of kitten
food to strictly adult food?
The vet told me to gradually do it. Is that
how you do it?
I figured you would enjoy some pictures of
Take care, Ginny
Hello, hope all is well!
Ciao is doing just great. He is the sweetest
boy and his birthday is quickly approaching!
I have attached a few pictures of him. He is
a riot. I call him my little abominable snowman
because he is a little monster!
He really completes our life. He makes me so
happy. I cannot thank you enough for him and
what you do as a reputable, experienced breeder.
I have attached some fun pics of him!
Ciao turned 10 months old on March 26th and
we just got him fixed on 4/4/17. Hoping we can
finish up final paperwork with you (purebred
paperwork). I have attached the receipt from
All is well at the Sheehan/Gibbons home! We
wanted you to know that after the pull and tug
of multiple envisioned sobriquets--e.g., Picasso
Santiago Ramon y Cahal, Don Quixote de la Mancha,
and Valentino Ignacio de Villanova--the kitten
himself solved the challenge of what his name
should be by clearly recognizing and answering
to "Valentino." I guess it's fitting:
I think we got the great word from you that
he was available in February sometime around
A sweeter cat could not exist. What a fabulous,
loving, trusting personality our little one
has. He had his first shot and has two more
coming soon. We think he might be pushing 4
pounds now, the little bruiser.
So grateful to you for all the attentive care
you give your kittens, raising them to be such
wonderful family members for all of us.
BartholoMEW is growing up fast. He is happy
and healthy. He eats (boy does he eat). He loves
the other furry friends here. His fave is the
other male cat (Norton) they chase each other
all the time and play hide and seek. Trixie
the other female has not warmed to the kitten
yet, but each day its better.
She is more skittish around him (and everyone)
but shes coming around.
The small pomeranians took an instant liking
to Bart. Our shepard mix just loves him too,
but since hes over 50 lbs I wont
let them play unsupervised. Again, hes
on my lap helping me type this
told me he misses you!
Thank you for giving us this little piece of
joy back into our lives - I also sent a couple
Don't know if you remember me. I bought a precious
Himi from you (white F) 2 yrs ago. Just wanted
to touch base with you & let you know Sugar-pie
is the most adorable/lovable kitty I've had.
She's cute as can be. Her fur & tail are
amazing, tail & ears are lilac. My groomer
said she's never seen such thick fur. I have
to get her shaved a couple times a year, due
to huge matting.
My other Himi (F), Charlie, is now 10 1/2, not
aging well, spends most of her time napping
& hissing at Sugar's antics. Sugar loves
Charlie & gives her a lot of slurpy baths.
They are a funny twosome!
I wish I had room, I'd love to have another
Himi from you. I'm presently involved with building
a small house in southern NJ. Maybe when I get
into my new "diggs" I'll have room
for another Joan-baby, that's assuming you haven't
retired! Hope all is well with you.
Hope you are great. Georgina is doing well
and is a little fire cracker. Had her at the
vet today for a vaccine and she is now 3.6 lbs.
She just keeps us laughing non-stop and has
zero fear of anything.
I just had to send you this picture of the
two of them as I caught the snapshot just out
of luck the other day. I call it our "Sears"
family portrait. It is as if they are posing
for a magazine.
They play together and she pretty much harasses
him but they both are sleeping under my bed
together at the moment. She won't leave Hugo
out of her sight. It really is quite adorable.
Have a great rest of week and let me know when
you may be expecting your next litter. My mom
would love to have a kitten from one of your
Hi Joan: The kids are watching
TV in the family room. They attack each other,
they play, and run up and down the stairs. They
are still exploring, but becoming more and more
comfortable in their surroundings. We just love
them. They are so adorable, very affectionate.
Thank you for being such a loving and caring
breeder. It truly makes a difference in their
getting acclimated to a new environment because
as we know cats traditionally are not the best
at doing that.
Just wanted to let you know that our baby Bella
is the sweetest little girl and the most loved
cat in the world!!!
Elisa and I hope you are all well and enjoy
this summer greatly.
We wanted to send you love from Paris. Elisa
turned 14 this year!! Her health is excellent.
If you ever have time, I would love to know
what you think her life expectancy is.
Below are pictures of Elisa. We send you our
heartfelt gratitude with a warm smile because
we love being together!
Thank you for holding so much love in your
heart for all the animals you took care of.
Good Evening Joan,
I hope this greeting finds you well.
eleven years ago, I purchased two doll faced
Himmies from you and happy to say they are both
thriving and the love of my life and my daughter.
Mine is the older sister, Jolee; my daughter's
We have always had cats, and must say that
far and away, this is the most loving, beautiful
cat I have adopted. She is a joy and a love
bug. I also have two sweet ShihTzus and they
are the epitome of what love should be in this
Having said all of this, I am thinking of adopting
another Himmie. I have visited your website
on and off and know another addition into my
family would be welcome, loved and adored. Do
you have any ready for adoption? I have a blue
point doll face, very white and would like to
adopt a similar one.
All the best!
I hope this finds you and your family well.
OMalley is doing fine. It has been a
little over 4 years since he joined our family.
He sleeps in my work chair every chance he gets.
Such a beautiful, sweet boy. He and our 2 year
old black lab, Sailor playfully chase each other
through our house...fun to watch.
I hope this photo brightens your day to know
one your babies is having a grand time. We love
Mayvic Luby McCloskey
Merry Christmas from the Prisner Family. Our
Theo and Cleo are so wonderful and loving....
we could not ask for more. Each have their own
personalities and we love them so much. They
have curly fur on their bellies! Little Cleo
is letting me hold her now and we adore her
Happy New Year 2018,
Anne and Jeff
Just sharing a pic of our babies!
Theyre inseparable and we love them both
Hi Joan: They are 6 months old and growing so
fast. We love them so much. Leo is still a crybaby
and very lovable, our Kate is the alpha and
very lovable but much more independent. She
is also bigger in size and he gravitates to
her, loves to sit on top of her. She allows
it for a short time then finds another spot.
They are so adorable.
They found the sink and love hanging in it..
Leopold - crazy eyes - he really is quite beautiful.
Our sweet Kate.
Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving,
Rosalie & Anthony Perinelli
Wanted to send you a quick pic of your
boy to let you know he is adjusting
just fine and is getting along so well
with Winnie. Two peas in a pod and they
are always together.
Couldnt be happier.
Thank you so much!
A pic of Misty Easter
morning. She is really growing already.
She is a sweetie girl. She is happy
and healthy. Plays all the time and
we just love her so much.
Hope you and Ed had a nice holiday.
As she grows, I will send more pics.
Hope all your babies are doing well.
We are just in love with Toby. He just
has a wonderful personality and fit
right into our household like he had
been here all along.
You obviously spent a lot of time with
him because he is no problem to groom.
We have also cut his nails and again
no problem so I am sure you worked with
He loves to harass the other cat in
the house but she still remains aloof.
Toby and dog has hit it off pretty well.
They quite often sleep back to back.
Toby loves to attack him and he does
not mind at all. If Toby gets too close
to his face, he just moves away. Also
on occasion the dog has been known to
take the toy that Toby is playing with.
At some point I will send a picture.
They have become best friends, Chloe
Joan, I have been wanting to email you
for about 12 years and Im finally
getting around to it.
My husband and I adopted and are proud
parents to 2 of the wonderful cats at
your cattery. Our girl, Sophia was born
5/19/04 and is the apple of her dads
eye. Actually, she is obsessed with
my husband Andy. Sophias cat parents
are Mr. Kuddles and Kozette. Our son
is Sammy, he was born 2/01/05 and is
really a momma's boy. His cat parents
are Mr. Kuddles and Kallie.
We cannot express how much we love our
babies and what incredible cats they
have always been. Never a bother and
give back so much love. They are really
people cats, they hate if we are ever
away from them. Thankfully, that rarely
happens since we work from home and
are always together.
They have always used their boxes and
like your instructions we feed them
wet food and always have out dry food.
Health wise they are doing great.
Ive attached photos so you can
see what amazing cats they have become.
They are so loved and cherished.
Thank you for all your work in providing
these gifts to us.
-Averil and Andy
Here it is another year with the love
of our lives...every day is just a bundle
of fun. Still acting like a kitten after
7 years! Thank you...
Greg and Lisa Blair
I cant tell you enough how great
having Bartholemew is!
He is the most mellow kitty Ive
ever had. He LOVES being groomed and
loves his feline AND canine
brothers and sisters.
I have bird feeders outside our window
and he loves watching them through the
glass. Call it cat TV.
Bart is a love and I just want to thank
you for raising these cats with integrity
and love. Eventually I will get another
kitty from you!

on April 5, Zephyr, the son of Katness
and Kimba, turned one year old!! Here
he is! As you can imagine, I am pleased
beyond belief! He is not only gorgeous,
but he has a remarkable, outstanding
personality that echoes my dear departed
Merlins! He is the nephew of Merlin
since Zephyrs grandfather was
Kuddles. Merlin has been gone one year
on March 30 and just six days later
Zephyr was born. His personality is
just like Merlins!!!
Amazingly you can breed personalities
along good lines and your cats have
an incredible lineage! Merlin lives
on in Zephyr and I was curious if the
personalities would be similar when
I purchased Zephyr and now I know that
wonderful personalities DO carry on
from generation to generation if you
have parents with distinctive, desirable
He is at home with my Arthur and Rupert,
my two other Himalayans and they are
a fantastic family of beauty and pleasure
for me, all different, and all beautiful.
As I said before and I will say again,
I have been around cats since I was
a baby and have had many as pets, but
none of them have had quite the marvelous
personalities and beauty that your doll
face Himalayans exhibit!!
Thank you for once again for bringing
joy to me and my home!!
Joan, happy Mothers Day!
I hope you are well.
I thought you might like
to see how big and beautiful the kittens
have grown. They are such loves. These
pics represent their personalities well
too Chai is very mellow, a little
shy, but very loving when he chooses.
Bean is a wild child and the alpha.
He runs and plays and instigates most
of the mischief. Hes very cuddly
Both kittens were over
6 pounds at their last vet visit two
weeks ago. They are very healthy and
I love seeing the pictures of new kittens
on your site, and I hope the blue lynx
point male has a home quickly, because
otherwise I will be tempted to bring
him home with me! Best, Tricia
Just wanted to say hi and send you a
funny picture of Toby.
He is doing well. He eats soooo much!!!
Hope you are well.
I love him so much. He follows me all
over the house and just wants all my
I just wanted to let you
know that Rocky turned 10 in August
and Pebbles will be 10 on Christmas
Eve. They have brought so much joy to
our lives, I cannot begin to tell you.
So I just wanted to take a moment to
thank you for bringing them into this
world. I love them so much and I wanted
you to know that they are indeed cherished
Ive enclosed a picture
of Rocky on the patio bench and Pebbles
in her catnip plant so you can see what
they look like now.
Best regards, Susan Gallagher
Here is Lila at 6 mos! She is my doll...so
loving and always at my side! Have not
left her for more than two hours.
Every morning she goes on the bed for
her nap..then I run out for errands.
Hope you are well and
the new kitties!
How are you doing? For
a long time now I've wanted to send
you some pictures of Casper and Zorro.
See below how pretty those little guys
became. They are almost 1 year old now
and were so happy with them. They
love to play and we love to spend time
We fixed them both about 3 months ago
(I will send you copy of the papers).
They recovered quickly from the surgery
and both are doing well.
Thanks a lot for bringing these two
guys into our life!!
All the best.
Just wanted to check in
with you to let you know the little
guy is the absolute love of our lives.
He's a lovable nonstop ball of energy
who has quickly become king of the castle.
He's inseparable from our other two
cats too. We just can't thank you enough
for allowing us to adopt this perfect
little boy! We absolutely adore him!
Hope that all is well

Hi, Joan -
Just wanted to tell you again how much
we love our Parmesan. Hes just
the best boy, so sweet and social, and
everyone adores him. Here are some recent
pics for you.
Hope all is well,
We bought Toby from you
last December and are just so delighted
with him!! He is just the cutest most
likeable guy! He is always making us
laugh with his antics climbing
up to the top of his cat trees or racing
back and forth through the house. He
is also quite the supervisor. Nothing
goes on around here without Toby checking
He was castrated in early
July 10 months old and everything
went well. My vet says to feed a low
ash food to avoid problems that male
castrated cats often have. Do you have
any recommendations? We are pretty close
to switching to adult food with him
as he will be a year old in August.
We are thinking about
buying another kitten from you. Do you
think you would have kittens ready to
go in December that have not been spoken
for? The ones available now on your
website I think would be ready in the
fall and that is an extremely busy time
for us so I would like to avoid that
if I could. Also as Toby is a male,
would we be better off with a male or
female? We are still just thinking about
this but wanted to get a feel for your
I have enclosed a picture
of Toby with Buddy which was taken in
March. They are the best of friends
as you can see. (The picture is not
staged - that is how I find them all
Thanks again for Toby,
Misako and Naveed are going to be in
the August issue of Delaware Today magazine
in a full page feature in an article
about "Animals that go to work."
The article focuses on the three counties
in DE. Misako and Naveed are representing
Sussex county. There will be a dog in
a gourmet wine shop from Wilmington
representing New Castle County, a security
cat in Dover representing Kent county.
The magazine called me saying they heard
about my two cats from a lot of people
who have visited Gallery 37. They are
the biggest hit in my gallery and in
Milford. They are on Facebook and on
Instagram!! They had a two hour photo
shoot last week. I saw some of the out
I just wanted to share
this with you and show you how beautiful
they are and exceptional fur babies
that I love so much! Naveed is bigger
than Misako now. Misako is very petite
and a pretty girl. They equally follow
me everywhere I go. No privacy in this
household anywhere! They have such personalities
that are awesome!

It's Deborah and Jay again
- we just noticed that it is Jeremy's
second birthday already. We've attached
a couple of recent photos of him, he
has turned out to be one of the best
cats we have ever had. He is still as
playful and affectionate as ever (if
a bit annoying early in the morning)
- and has been a fine healthy boy.
We see from your website
that you may have some new kittens coming
soon, and were wondering if any of them
might be available for later in the
summer. Emily, our "senior"
cat is still with us - she will be twenty
in July - and having another playmate
seems to have done wonders for her.
So we are seriously thinking about adding
a fourth to keep everyone happy: and
we wanted to start with Karistakats,
since we have had such good luck so
Can you please let us
know what you may have for sale coming
Deborah and Jay
Good evening, Joan. I hope you had a
I have no words to describe how much
I (we) love this guy. We named him Kashmir
and are calling him Kash. Hes
the sweetest angel. He allows me to
brush him, clean his eyes and hold him.
He sleeps curled in my hair and doesnt
move all night. I feel like I won the
lottery. I cant believe his sweet
disposition and how happy he appears
to be. I struggled on the way home,
I cried because I felt like I ripped
him from his family. But thankfully,
he appears to be very happy. I love
him with all my heart. Hes helping
me to heal.
Hes got one hell of a personality;
not to mention that hes stunningly
gorgeous. He screams when you go into
the bathroom and shut the door. He loves
the dog (go figure). Hes content
just chilling and watches the TV intently.
He gently rubs my face with his paws
(I think he mistakes me for you - but
Ill take it). He purrs the instant
you look at him. Hes just amazing.
I love everything about him.
Thank you for allowing us to have this
precious little baby. He is so very

Just wanted to send you a picture of
our dear Snowball. He brings a lot of
joy to our Family. He has gotten so
big and he is so so sweet and loving
and he rules here. We will be sending
you his neutering paperwork.
Hope you have a wonderful Holiday.
Hope you like the pic!

Things are going well here.
Flossie is so good we
cannot believe it. I dont know
if we can attribute it to your training
or her personality or a combination.
She has clawed nothing around the house
except her scratching posts. She loves
the big cats, and they love her.
Today she got to use her
new hammock. She wants to be wherever
we are. She cries when Walt goes out
the front dooreven when Im
still in the house!
Benny seems to be enchanted
with her. We are so happy about that.
She loves on him. Annabelle is getting
there but is a little jealous. We are
glad she is feisty. She and Benny were
playing last night. She holds her own
very well with him. They were hysterical
to watch. She can find nooks and crannies
where he cannot get to her because he
is so big. Once he gives up, she comes
out and waits until he sees her, then
runs again. He is mesmerized with her.
Annabelle is good with her but gets
nervous if Flossie comes toward her
at a high rate of speed! We are so thrilled
Hope all is well there
Hi Joan & Gang!
Merry Christmas!!!! We
enjoyed Violet's 1st Christmas! We have
a lot of family over Christmas night
and everyone who already didn't meet
Violet, got to meet her for the first
time. EVERYONE is in love! We had to
make sure nobody was smuggling her out
of the house when they depart!!! Violet
is a GEM! She continues to cuddle with
each of us-she just fills our hearts
with joy! She loves to sleep on us and
we all welcome her kitty snuggles!
Hope all is well for you!
I have never been late sending Christmas
cards but this season got away so my
Christmas cards are officially late.
Thank you!! You have blessed us! You
did an AMAZING job with Violet!! We
appreciate you, your knowledge, your
Enjoy this cute picture
we captured of Violet Belle
Heidi, Ron, Veronica & Violet
just wanted to send you a couple pictures
to show you what a beautiful boy he
is turning out to be. We are all just
enchanted by him. (My mother in law,
who is visiting for the holidays, has
been caught pulling him around the house
on a towel, like a sled - which he loves!)
We all agree we got very lucky with
this little guy. He is everything we
hoped for: sweet, affectionate, funny
and a wonderful companion. I am delighted
to find him sleeping on my head every
morning. We really appreciate how well
you raised him.
I thought you would want to hear how
well he has settled in.
hope you are well and that all the mommas,
dads, and babies are too!
I thought you might enjoy
some pictures of Maui now that he is
6 months old. He is such a sweet boy.
The boys love him so much.
We experienced a loss of our Seal Point
Himalayan, Romeo, a few months ago.
He was diagnosed with intestinal cancer
and a mass was pressing on his esophagus.
The boys and I were devastated and I'm
sure Maui misses him too.
I wanted to reach out to see if you
were going to be having any more kittens,
males, around the holidays as I would
Hope to hear from you soon!
Here is our darling two-year-old
relaxing in one of his cat towers as
we sit nearby in our upstairs family
room watching the news or reading, depending
on the spouse. This is an evening event.
the morning Valentino has this routine:
First is a lengthy groom,
which includes (but of course is not
limited to) a roll-over Beethoven
in which our sweetheart rolls overwith
or without proddingso I can do
additional combing under his arms, all
around his britches, and even along
his feet (he sticks them out for me
Then we go downstairs
for breakfast. V and I have this understanding
(he is not a fast eater): I give him
his first course, take a seat at the
breakfast table, and drink coffee and
do business or read news UNTIL...I get
a tap-tap on my leg from you-know-who,
which means I need to get up and serve
the cats second course. We do
four courses in all. Is this cutie indulged
or WHAT?! Is he amazing or WHAT?
Thank you for bringing
this darling into our lives, Joan. I
think of you oftenwith a smile
of appreciation and gratitude.
Ive been hesitant
to write you because you said to wait
a week before introducing Winston to
Mario. The day we brought him home,
Mario stuck his paw under the door and
Winston mewed until we eventually opened
it. Winston immediately started rubbing
against Mario, slept on top of Mario,
batted his toys at Mario, and doesnt
give Mario a moments peace. He
never gives up and just overflows with
curiosity and joy.
We could not possibly have found a more
perfect addition to our family. He is
also noticeably smarter than any cat
I have ever had. He picks up on things
so quickly including how to work
my iPad and watching him cheer
up Mario has brought me to tears.
Today we had company and Little Winston
immediately came to introduce himself
and then sat in the room the entire
time our guests were here. At one point,
he brought a toy as a gift.
He sleeps on my pillow
and purrs and we, quite literally, could
not love him more. He is eating, doing
all his business in the litter box,
and has already outsmarted all our cat
Thank you for such a beautiful and well
am sure you are so busy with new babies
in Spring. We are saying everyday, how
blessed we are with our sweet Penelope.
You really are so special to us for
all you have done with your care and
love to make Penelope such a wonderful
addition to our family! We are so lucky
and cannot believe it! She puts a smile
on our faces everyday no matter how
hard of a day we have all had.
She really thinks she is one of us and
continues to shower us with sweetness,
playfulness, intelligence everyday.
She just celebrated her 6 month birthday
(will send photos). We had a party for
her, she is getting so big and beautiful!
A joy in our life!
Every day my daughter says "Mama
can you believe what a cute and special
kitten we have?" The hide and go
seek we play has evolved to tag! She
actually will chase me and put her legs
around my leg when she finds me and
then I chase her and it goes on and
on! She also loves sitting on my lap
while I work at my desk and sometimes
sits on the computer. She really is
unique and I have never had such a sweet
and docile kitten before. I rush home
from work and cannot wait to see her!
Thank you so much.
Hope you have a good rest of your Sunday!
Kindest regards from all of us, Vicki
Joan, I hope this email finds you well.
I thought you would enjoy this magnificent
picture my husband took of Grendel.
He has grown into a very handsome young
man. He has made himself right at home
in our family, and we feel lucky to
have found him: he's playful, and fun,
and sociable and affectionate.
My son, who was initially so down about
getting another cat, has become particularly
close to him.
I hope things are well with all of your
Best, Julie Green
ya, Im not sure I ever emailed
an update, but I thought maybe it would
be fun to show you how this sweet kitty
has grown. He grew very attached to
our pitbull, then very attached to an
exotic bicolour shorthair we got shortly
after getting him.
We named him Jasky, and I feel a little
guilty admitting he is the best cat
Ive ever owned. Sweet, caring,
cuddly, and funnier than any cat Ive
ever met. Does ridiculous things like
runs on smooth wood without thinking
of slowing down and skids into walls
(not very hard of course, he just gets
really hyper and doesnt seem to
remember the floor is smooth and his
paws are slippery!) and jumps into open
garbage cans while Im changing
He is absolutely fastidious about cleaning
himself, and actually cleans our exotic
shorthair who doesnt ever clean
himself. Sometimes he cleans us, too.
Hes also very smart, he learns
from his mistakes, learns dog
behavior from the dog, teaches it to
our exotic, knows what door leads to
food, knows what humans to beg, and
he even knows how to trick us when someone
has already fed him.
Anyway, enough about this
funny kitty. Here are some pictures
you can see, he really likes sticking
his tongue out. Cracks me
upevery time. Let me know if you would
like to see more pictures too.... I
have 1000s of them.
We went on holiday once and had to house
them both in a fancy cat hotel, and
when we came back theowners were BEGGING
us not to take Jasky back. They had
nicknamed him loverboy and said he was
in the top 5 sweetest cats they had
He is my best friend and who I look
forward to seeing all day. The funniest
personality of any kitty Ive ever
I think he is a lot like his aunt, the
one that greeted me when we went to
get Jasky, who would not stop purring
and bonking my hand for attention.
Jasky is the same way, even with complete
strangers. People cant believe
a cat can be this friendly or this social!
as much as I love him, as you can see,
his little brother/bestie Noctis loves
him even more.
Whenever Jasky has an appointment at
the vet or to be groomed, Noctis gets
visibly depressed. He is terribly attached
Thank you so much again
for the wonderful cat.
And finally, here some fan art of Jasky
I have gotten from friends and strangers.
Today is Flossies 2nd birthday!
She is in Florida still (waiting for the COVID
numbers to slow down at home).
We are ever grateful to you for this sweet,
albeit feisty, kitty. Here she is right now
helping me with my puzzle.
I hope you are well and everything is good
with your kitties.
Kathy and Walt
Schnitzels eye color changed and he
is simply stunning! He is an amazing cat.
He is so warm and friendly. He follows me
around everywhere. He doesnt hide very
much because he likes to be around us all
He is so calm and chill. I hate to say it
but he might be my best cat yet!
He gets along well with the kids and is such
a happy boy. He is a complete delight.
We love him so much!
Xiao Mei is 5 years old and
she is such a delightful little girl.
She is very loved and spoiled!
Hope all is well with you and your family
(both cats and people!)

18 in April!
