Testimonies from 2007
I got your phone message - I left you
one also but I'm uncertain you received
Clementine got here safely. She was
quiet all the way home. Once we got home
I sequestered her in my bedroom (with
litter box, food, water, cat condo,
scratching post & toys) and stayed with
her for 2 hours. Then I had to go to
work. When I got off work I cleaned her
litter box, fed her some wet food and
played with her. She is well socialized
and loves to be petted. She also likes
to be held. She's just a little shy
right now so I'm not seeing any ornery
behavior. Althought I'm hoping for some
soon! She is about as perfect a kitten
as I've ever seen. And she is absolutely
beautiful. I am thrilled with her. I'll
write again to let you know how she is
doing after she settles in a bit more.
is doing well. She is 3 pounds now
and lots of fun.
She loves to play and entertains us for hours.
adores her and loves playing with
her. She has such a sweet nature.
Lindsay and Michelle.
Sophie and McGreggor
just wanted to drop you a line and
let you know these beautiful
kittens are doing really well. they
were welcomed easily by the other
cats and they are just the best
kittens. i don't know what i ever
did without them. sophie is a great
girl, she likes to go off by herself
and then comes round regularly for
some lovin. she insists on your
complete attention, wants to be
petted with both hands. she
especially wants that tummy rubbed.
she is so pretty and elegant looking
and is a bit of a princess.
McGreggor is absolutely the sweetest
boy around. he's gentle and loving.
he would be a lap kitten if he
wasn't such a boy, he hands with the
other guy cats. he especially loves
AJ the main coon.
thank you so much for the great work
you do breeding the best.
Yoda arrived and he is very cute! I was
worried when you said he had an ugly
duckling stage but he is just what I was
hoping for...and he is very playful
and Yoda are adjusting to each other and
think Kibbi is going to enjoy having his
1/2 brother around. I'll
keep you posted on how they are
doing.....thanks again Mark
I have tried to send few pics of
Winston, but the computer is acting
up and won't do it...I will keep
re-sending...or just send you some
pics on regular mail for starters.
The little dude is doing
great...didn't get in trouble when I
was gone for 3 hours.
He has briefly met all
the dogs...but 3 big heads wanting
to sniff at the same time was enough
for one day. He did sleep on same
bed w/Mandy, who really doesn't care
about other creatures. + She did
live previously w/dominant cat.
Max wanted to lick Winston and full
body wash wasn't the best option for
him, but tolerated it well. The
problem w/Max is that he is very
loving and clumsy, he doesn't know
where the tongue ends and teeth
begins, also he is 94lbs.
Bruno was ok w/Winston when he
didn't move...Bruno goes for the
movement...therefore I will work
w/them over the next few weeks.
Bruno on long line and "too bad"
place close by.
Winston is very curious and all over
the place. He wants to be part of
everything, so he has been in the
pantry, dishwasher, closet,
bookcase... and he is eyeballing the
He seems to be very happy when he is
high up; back of the couch, top of
the cat tree, etc.
I am still waiting for him to
"crash". He sleeps his nights, but
doesn't nap too much during the day.
He is running 300 miles an hour. I
am actually thinking about collar
w/cow bell on it
A) to hear where he is B) to slow
I do have to say, he really is a
joy, such a good natured kitten.
Anyway, I will get some pics asap
one way or another.
We just brought her home a half hour
ago! She is absolutely precious!
She was very shy and quiet on the
drive home. When we arrived home we
opened the carrier and she remained
shy for about 30 seconds and then
she crawled out and started
She is fascinated with a
mirror we have in her safe room and
she is playing with all of her
toys. She resisted letting us pick
her up at first but as soon as you
scratch behind her ears she sinks
into a purring puddle in your arms.
She is wonderful! We have our other
cats in the next room and she made
the decision to introduce her
herself by pawing under the door.
We will wait another day or two
before making a supervised
introduction, but so far I think she
will handle herself just fine.
We will send pictures very soon.
Thank you so much for her!
Joann and Rich
FYI.... He took 9th AB kitten in one
ring today..... (61 total kittens)
Makunda of FrontPageKat
I'll send you the pics of "buzz" the
new fold, soon.... I think you'll
really like him..
Merlin and Angus
took a few shots of my favorite
turkeys yesterday, and thought you
would be able to see that Merlin has
indeed survived, and thrived! He’s
such a HULK! I don’t know how many
bytes or whatever you can get at
once, so will send just a couple at
you still have contact with the lady
who bred Angus? Do you think she’d
like to see how pretty he grew up to
be? If so, send me her email
address and I’ll send some to her…or
feel free to forward these.
just adore these little guys! I had
a little surgical procedure last
Friday, and have been in bed most of
the time since. As you can tell,
they stay right with me. Most of
the time, they’re at the foot of the
bed, as shown, but sometimes Merlin
comes up and lays down next to my
shoulder, and Angus drapes himself
across my legs. They are such sweet
you again for Merlin, and for
helping us find Angus. Our lives
have been SO enriched!
Thanks for the information and
no hurry to get back to us. We had
a very nice Thanksgiving. Glad you

he is such a dear boy if he would
just learn the word no. He is so
curious about everything that

point? The new food just seem to be
Thanks Again for giving us
For your information
we renamed Brooklyn a few weeks
after we got him because he ignored
that name. We renamed him "Sammy"
Just wanted to update you on Chase. He
is wonderful. It took about 10 days for
Simon to come around but now they play
all the time. Chase thinks he can do any
thing. He lays on top of Simon and just
blends into him. He went for his shots
on the 20th and all is well. Thanks so
much from me and Simon.

They take them where they want to play
and then play. Then they carry them back
and start all over again.
I also had a couple of questions;
Should I intervene and break up their

How much wet food should I let Fergus
have? They have Science Diet and the
Stuff you sent with them as dry food
down all the time. I have been giving
them 1/4 of a small can of pro plan
kitten food about 4 X a day. Fergus
would eat 1/2 can about every 2 hours if
I let him. He is quite the beggar!
Everytime I go into the kitchen he
meow's and meows for food.
Have a happy thanksgiving.
I bought them a can of turkey cat food

Both are fine and
adorable :) Janet
Hi and good morning,
We had a restful night. They were
both quite good. Fergus slept on my
legs for part of the night, I am not
sure where Tavey slept, I think in
her little bed. There is no snooze
alarm on a hungry kitten! We were up
and eating by 6:30.
Tavey LOVES to play in the shower;
she takes her toys in there and bats
them around. She and Fergus play on
opposite sides of the glass shower
doors. It is really funny to watch.
Fergus is the investigator. Tavey is
getting more adventurous this
morning. They are chasing each other
all over. They ate well this
morning. Each of them has sneezed a
few times but no other signs of any
Fergus wants love and lap time Tavey
wants to play!
They are great with each other. Once
during the night Fergus jumped off
our bed and onto Tavey as she
sauntered by-she hissed and batted
him. They sound like a heard of
elephants running around right now.
I am going to try to trim those
little claws today, they are very

rapidly. Thanks for such well

Well they arrived safe and sound.
They were right on time. Tavey has
been the shy one, Fergus-the
brave-came right out of the carrier,

Tavey took her time coming out. She
ate a little and the rolled and
snuggled on my lap. They are both
Fergus has already run around most
of the house, Tavey is still playing
in the bathroom where we let them
out of the carrier. I had a bed and
some toys, food and water and she is
still there! They are so sweet.
Yep she just ate. Fergus was a
pig, he ate and ate in the car.
Tavey ate a little bit of wet
food in the car from my hand.
Then just now she ate quite a
Thanks again for everything.
They are running around like
wild kittens. Little or no
adjustment time required.

Lindsay and Michelle
it’s Kasumi’s owner!
have a question about the microchips
that you use. Kasumi is (nearly)
ready for a one-month trip to France
for Christmas (she got her
vaccinations and all). The only
thing is that France asks for the
microchip ISO 11784, and I was
wondering if the AVID microchip that
she got implanted was this standard.
Did you have any problems with the
cats you send to Europe? I’ll also
try to get some information from the
She’s still very sweet and very
smart. With the winter coming, her
hair is thick and fluffy, and she’s
now nearly 9 lbs (I’ve attached a
picture of her, she loves to sleep
in boxes, in totally uncomfortable
). I think she’ll love to travel and
meet other animals. She spent a
week-end at one of my friends’ and
was quickly friend with her cat and
2 dogs. It should be fun!
Griffanie and Flame
I just wanted to give you an update on
Annie and Flame. Both are doing great,
Annie is a real sweetheart and is always
looking for attention. She cooperates
with brushing and nail clipping. She is
a real sweetheart.
Flame is a sweetheart too when she wants
to be. Right now all is good with her
and she is coming to be for attention,
but when i brush her, or epically when i
clip her nails, she gets mad and it can
take days till she comes looking for
attention. After a nail clipping she
will not come near me for days and if I
go to her, she runs away. After a few
days she is back to normal and looking

Here are 3 new
pictures of my babies in the new house.
They seem to
be doing fine, but are still not
sleeping with us much.
Jim, we think,
figured it out ... it is becaue we slept
upstairs at the old house and now, we
are sooooooooooo cute.
Thank you, Thank you!
Suzanne, here are
a couple pictures of Ciaran.
The eyes cleared
up very well and he is growing and doing
great. We all love him to death, he gets
very spoiled around here.

pictures show Daphne doing
her favorite past time,
watching the fish in the
fish tank. Thank you again
for the wonderful happiness
she brings to our family.
She is sooo rotten! It is great! I tease
her that she takes off running just to
get the dogs to chase after her so they
get in trouble.
Oh she likes him. She will go
into his room when he is home
and lay on his bed and 'talk' to
him until Chase comes and pets
her. He thinks she is pretty
special too. She is such a lovey

Thanks for everything,
am not sure if you remember me, but
we purchased our little Cielo from
you in 2003. It is hard to believe
that he will be 4 this January! I
am enclosing a picture of my curious
one and wish to thank you once again
for all the joy you have brought
into our lives with this lively
little boy. The other picture is of
our oldest boy, Osito. He will be 7
in November. He came to us from
Elusive Blue in 2001. Osito’s
father was Raleigh of Elusive Blue
and he was in the line of Elusive
Blue Conner of Turningleaf that was
Cielo’s father. It is a small
main reason for my note is to ask if
you would please notify me when you
have a retired cat coming up for
adoption. My son is currently in
Medical school at the University of
Louisville in Kentucky. He and his
fiancé would like to have a British
shorthair, but since she did not
grow up with cats, they feel that
one that is a little older rather
than a kitten will be easier to
adapt to. My son really is a pet
person and at some time would like
to have more than one cat and or dog
in his household, so we would want
to make sure that he chooses a cat
that likes people and other pets for
the future. He has also looked at
your Scottish Fold website and since
they tend to have the same adorable
personalities as a Brit, he may even
consider one of them. Of course,
his first choice would be Cielo’s
mother, Vina, his sister, Sonora or
his uncle Stormy. However,
depending on the timing and the cat,
I am sure he would consider any of
the others. They are all so
beautiful! He would love to have
one of mine, but I could not part
with either of them and without the
other one to keep each other
company, I am afraid my home would
be in danger of the aftermath of
do have a bit of sad information.
In July, we lost our 18 ½ year old
baby girl, Patches. She was a stray
that found her way to us and is
missed greatly by all of us. My
veterinarian keeps telling me that
my “boys” need another playmate, but
I am just not ready yet. I have
told my husband that I am keeping an
eye on your sight, as I have done
for the last 4 years, and when that
little face or even retired face
grabs my heart, I will be giving you
Thanks for you time, your wonderful
website and the purrrfect little
Cielo that we could not live
without! His road races and his
favorite hobby of stealing my hand
towels from the bathroom rack would
make for a dull household.
Thanks for your
advice, I will email you some
pictures and videos of him. He is
like a little hopping teddy bear
that attacks everything. He is also
quite the jumper! He is already
getting on our counters, and likes
to watch tv from high places like
the back of the couch. We found him
asleep on a placemat on the table
once too. He is so funny. Chris has
nicknamed him IP (Instant Purr)
because when you pick him up, or he
rubs on your legs when you are
walking he just breaks out into a
loud sudden purr. He is so cute.
Show in Harrisonburg, VA. This past
Saturday was a success! Our Casanova did
competing against two grands however one
Judge picked him as 3rd best cat in
premiership over the others, Said he had
excellent coat , eyes, expression,
weight,etc. He maid Three finals in all,
not bad for first show in premiership.
His Main competition came from Paddy
another one of your fine gents.
Hampton and Heather have both grown up
to be big, beautiful, and Sweet cats!
Thanks for sharing! Tried to get a
decent picture, But not much
What a great web site you have! Not to
mention the furry beauties.
Lionel < Casanova > is handsome boy and
he is getting BIG. Saturday is his first
show in premiership, may take some time
he does not have a lot of Completion,
however he handles beautifully and does
not mind the noise excitement, etc.
After growing up we decided that he is a
spotted tabby His face needs to get
fuller and I think it will.
Brie is great and
has grown a lot, we are very very
happy with her, thank you because
she is the most lovable kitten.

hi suzanne- Just
wanted to give you an update on
He's doing great and eating like a
horse!! He loves hanging out with us
and follows us around the house.
There's never a dull moment. We love
him so much! Thanks for all your
help. I'm still giving him the eye
meds and it really seems to be
working. I will keep you updated.
Marissa and Del
Hi Dr. Henne,
Here are a couple of pictures with
Orso(cream) and Leia(blue),
expressing different types of
An & Wayne
Angus and Merlin
I hope you had a good time – and
great results – at the races!
The camera is once again
cooperating…a little bit…the
focus is still a bit off, but
what the heck! Here are a
couple of shots I took a few
hours ago. The little devils
KNOW I want to take pictures of
them, especially together, so
naturally they avoid me whenever
they see the camera.
I wish you could see them side
by side to appreciate the size
difference! We’ve renamed him
about four times, but since
Merlin the Magnificat is his
registered name, guess he’s
stuck with it. The more
appropriate names include “The
Incredible Hulk” (he really is a
hulk), “Sasquatch” (his feet are
huge), “Bigfoot”, and
“Velcro” (when he charges up the
stairs, you hear his claws
shredding the Berber every step
of the way…and fast!). I’d
guess him to be about 15 pounds
or more…Angus is 9 or 10.
I’ll try to get better photos
soon…I’d really like to get his
posterior spread out over the
back of the sofa! Steve says
he’s about three axe-handles
wide, but he’s really NOT fat.
He’s just a Brit! Looking at
the latest pix of Burton on your
website, I can see a lot of him
in Merlin. Especially that kind
of frowning expression, whereas
Angus is so round- and
wide-eyed. Burton looks like
he’s about 18-20 pounds?
Must go. Hope you had a
satisfying weekend, but were
glad to get back to all your
babies. Thanks again for
I just finished looking at your
web pages -- like to to do that
occasionally to see your new babies
and everything – and I LOVE the new
look! I think I got the best laugh
I’ve had in months looking at the
big blue male on the letterhead!
That looks like one royally
ticked-off pussycat! I get such a
kick out of some of their facial
The new photos throughout are
priceless. If anyone is even
remotely interested in adopting, and
sees them, you’ve got sales! There
is one of a blue lying on its back
in what I call the “shameless hussy”
position on the computer
desk…exactly Merlin’s favorite
pose. Guess that shows they’re
relaxed and comfortable, huh? We
also really liked the one draped
over the front of the green machine!
I hope everything and everyone
are fine at your place.
boys are a continual source of
amusement and joy. One of these
days I’ll have to get some photos
out to you – Merlin is a
horse! Angus weighs much
less than you’d think by looking,
and Merlin much more. He really
shows his bulk lying on his side, or
viewed from the rear when in the
meatloaf position. Steve says he’s
about three axe handles wide. (He
does exaggerate!) I can’t lift him
anymore, but that’s not his fault,
and in fact he prefers not being
picked up. (I think he still
associates that with being taken to
the counter and medicated.)
Anyway, the boys have been so sweet
and comforting. I swear they can
read minds, pain levels, or
something. The days I have to be in
bed, I’ve always got company…but
they somehow know when I can’t stand
having them lie on me. Depending on
the severity, they cuddle into the
circle of an arm, against my side or
legs, or just near my feet…sometimes
draping a paw over me somewhere.
I’d swear they’re trying to soothe
me. What would life be like without
these little people sharing it? I
don’t ever want to find out.
So…thanks for sharing all the
little darlings on your web pages,
and especially, of course, for our
Suzanne & Steve,
Angus & Merlin
with Poodie and brother Harley
Here are some
pictures of Jasper when we first got him
still has a lot of energy, very
playful. At night and in the
mornings he likes to run what I
would refer to as “sprints.” He
runs from one end of the house to
the other several times with no
intended purpose. It’s pretty
funny. He’s starting to get really
big and has a ton of strength! His
favorite thing is to have his foot
pads rubbed. Everyone loves him!
Glacier Real Estate Finance
Good morning. I wanted to send you
some pics of my girl. She is
She has become very vocal, and very
demanding. She is adjusting to life
with 2 dogs well. (I adopted another
Cocker Spaniel, 2 weeks ago). My
husband calls our house 'The Zoo'.
Daphne is very loving, we are so
happy to have her in our 'Zoo'. She
has put on alot of weight, and is
not nearly shedding as much. The
second pic is not great, but it
shows her on the bed with the dog,
just like she belongs!
Thank you for entrusting her to us.
It was good to see you too. Chase is
wonderful. Simon growled and hissed at
him for the first 3 days but it didn't
seem to bother him too much. Simon is
better now but still won't play with
Chase. Chase is a mess. He sneaks up
behind Simon and reaches out and touches
him and then runs and hides. Simon acts
like he doesn't know who it was, he
looks around and Chase is gone. It's so
funny. Chase is eating good and he
hasn't had any problems at all. Thanks
again for this wonderful baby. I will
write back and keep you updated.
Bell and Smokie
Hope you are good
today. Bill and I are enjoying the
kittens!! Bella is "the queen"
eats like a pig. She is three weeks
older than Smokie, but quite a bit
larger. Is this normal?
I thought he
would be out-growing her by now. He
is a true sweetheart, loves early
morning time, head butts, chin and
belly rubs. He's not a picky eater,
much more of a
small bites type guy. I'll keep you
posted. Hope all is well.
venezuelan experiences have been a
progressing but we are still having
some problems with our other cat, he
is a himalayan, male 8 years old, he
looks calm but brie is very tense
and scared of him, we´ve been
kepping them separated, and when we
get them together we are around. I
think it is just a matter of time
till they get along very well.
We still don´t
let her out in the garden because we
are scared she will run away (it´s
not thet easy but our other cat has
done it many times), when we let her
out we are with her.
Today she was
sleeping more than normal, she was
kind of weird but i think it could
be a late reaction to the climate
she is eating
and going to the bathroom normally.
She loves to
be with people and is very calm and

and follows me. She is just a doll.
Thanks for all your help.
Monte weighs just
a shade over 9 lbs and sounds like
a horse when running through the
house. He is a beautiful cat and
full of love.
Boy----almost 11 months! Monty has been
a joy....so full of love and eager to
please. He comes much like a dog when
called and certainly knows the word NO
and what it means....

Thought you might
want to see Juliette's best friend.
Suzanne - Here are the latest
pictures of Bentely.
Max is now 4 lbs.
12.5 oz., (just a bit over 4 mos.
old) so growing well, I guess his
indulging in the adult cat food more
than the kitten food isn't hurting.
He and Newman are
finally friends, it is fun to
finally see them play together. Max
thinks Newmans bushy tail is a great
new toy.....Max is always trying to
snuggle up to Newman, I think he
misses his siblings. I am really
happy that Newman has taken to the
little speed demon so well.
Have enclosed a
few pictures so you can see his
progress, he is still loving and
think his coat is going to be
spotted like his picture?
Thank you for my
precious little gift.
Newman are finally becoming friends,
they have started playing
together....Max really likes playing
with Newman's big fluffy tail. He
is totally at home now, even got
himself locked in the coat closet
for about 2 hrs. yesterday....he
wasn't out playing and had to start
the hunt for him.....he just looked
at me when I opened the door "it's
about time you found me". He loves
the outdoors, playing with the
leaves and trying to catch the bugs!
He is as cute as
can be, just love him so much. He
now uses the big boy litter box, and
occasionally chows down on Newman's
food...I guess it won't hurt
him....he just has to chew a
little harder. I will let you know
what the vet. says and how much he
has gained....will send you some
pictures this weekend...you know
kittens, they end up in some funny
Sorry about the
delay in response. Hermione is doing
well, we love her so much. Every
morning when my husband showers she
greets him the bathroom. She and my
shih tzu are doing well. My shih tzu
just tolerates her. With this breed
of cat, is it normal to have
drainage from the eyes? I clean her
eyes everyday with some warm water.
I notice she drains more from the
left eye. When will her eyes turn
copper? Will they be that color all
the time? Is her breed a relative of
the Persian? Just asking b/c this is
what my vet said???
Everyone is so
surprised about her soft coat. She
always purrs in the morning. She
has just recently started purring
for me when I rub her stomach.
Again, we love her so much.

Do you think she
is happy? LOL!
Maggie has been
doing well-- she has put on a nice
amount of weight and her fur has
been growing in densely.
trying to find a cat treat for her
and have tried "Pounce", but she
does not like that brand whatsoever.
a particular brand that she might
prefer? Right now she's overly fond
of "Petromalt" for hairballs (she
comes sprinting when she sees the
tube), but that's not quite a treat.
Also, has Maggie ever been sensitive
to certain foods? She has recently
succeeded in commandeering some
cream that was meant for tea, and
seemed to have some lower digestive
problems. I'm aware
are lactose intolerant, but this
seemed a bit different.
Here are several
links to new pictures of her-- I'm
sure you'll agree that she is
getting prettier every week!
We decided to name her
She's been running all over the
house and playing with us a lot, she
is so cute, not shy at all.
We've been paying a lot of
attention and brie just loves it.
She is also a fast learner, she
already knows she can't go upstairs.
We were kind of worried because
she wouldn't eat, not canned food,
not dried food, but this morning she
went into her cage that was open and
started eating the food that you had
put inside, which is the name of

wonderful!!! He traveled without
any problems we talked to him most
of the way until he got bored
hearing us and went to sleep. It
took us 7 hours because of the
weather. You were right he needed
no quiet room. He was busy
exploring and wanting attention from
the time we got home. We went to
our vet yesterday to introduce
Brooklyn to them and she was very
impressed with your procedures and
paper work. She also said that this
was unusual with her past experience
with cat breeders. We just can't
thank you enough for such a
wonderful cat and experience. We
love him dearly.
We will be getting
you some pictures soon.
Thanks again, Donna

great and they bring so much joy to
us. Thank you!!!
Tipu Sultan Khan
How are you? Tipu is doing
fine although I wanted to
ask you how much should he
be eating in a day I want to
make sure he is eating
enough. How fast does he
grow as far as weight and
stuff. Is it normal for him
to sleep a whole lot?
I am also sending you a

Thought I'd send you a couple more
pictures of KiKi, (calico), & Zoey,
(blue). They are growing up to be
gorgeous cats. KiKi weighed in at 9
lbs. at her checkup a few weeks ago,
& I'm sure Zoey isn't far behind,
(but she's not due to see the vet
again until December)
I forgot to compliment you in my
last letter on your redesigned
site. I enjoy seeing "our girls"
featured on some of your pages. We
did have to put one of our bulldogs
down last April, (Molly the one on
the right), but that picture still
brings a smile to our faces - seeing
them all pose together! I still
can't believe we actually got them
to sit still long enough to do
that! I also especially like the
testimonials that include your
original pictures, (as tiny
kittens), along with the new
owner's recent ones, so thought I'd
include KiKi & Zoey's baby pictures
too. (I'm sending 4 pictures in
all) It's amazing to see how they
change in a few months!
I was really excited to see you've
included a silver tabby in your
breeding program. Robocats has some
wonderful looking cats. Their
markings are gorgeous. Are you
planning on getting a female also?
When I first started looking for
a British kitten, I was hoping to
get a silver tabby. If you do start
breeding them, I may be tempted to
add another Ouachita kitten to the
Take care & I'll continue to keep
you updated on the girls!
I just wanted to
give you a short update on Maggie.
She's been doing very well and I
would say she likes her new home. We
have found that Brit Shorthairs are
indeed very easy to train: she will
not go on the same "forbidden"
surfaces (like the stove!) twice and
behaves wonderfully. She also likes
to talk when she wants to play and
grumbles if she can't capture the
toy she's stalking.
We have received
the packet you sent (that was
fast!). We'll send you more pictures
of her in a few weeks.

wonderful and a delight.
Leda arrived at my
home. She is tired. She keeps quiet in
the corner of the room. She is so cute.
I am pleased.
Hi Dr. Henne,
We just wanted to give you an update on
April and of course show you her cute
new photos (taken today!). She is a
pleasure! When we get home she meets us
at the door and will follow us around
the apartment until she feels we have
given her an adequate amount of
attention-- which of course we are happy
to do!! She loves sitting on our desk
chairs or by the window watching all the
birds (we have a lot of trees outside
our window!). We have her on an indoor
cat dry food (science diet) and she has
kept a great weight - and we just keep
her daily amount of food out all day and
let her munch! She seems to like that.
And although she has a water bowl by her
food, we realized she much prefers to
drink her water out of this huge metal
bowl (one of my old mixing bowls) we had
used one weekend that we were away! So
now we leave both water bowls out - just
in case! We really love her and could
not have asked for a better friend!!
Thanks again for all your help with her!
We will keep you updated!!

They went to
the vet today to get a shot. She
also trimmed their claws. So now I
know how to do it. Charlie is so
laid back that he did not even meow
for his shot. All of the staff kept
saying that they are beautiful.
We are so glad we
happy to have each other.
great fun to watch them as
playmates. They run around and
wrestle each other and chase each
other. The kids just love them and
to play with them. They sleep
together alot too.
They are truely wonderful pets and
everything you said they would be.
I'm sorry I haven't written sooner about
Piper and Cessna, the sisters we bought
from you back in December 2006. I wanted
to update you on how they are doing.
First of all, they have adjusted to our
family very, very well. They
are so sweet and gentle. Cessna is
definitely more adventuresome.
We intended for them both to be indoor
cats, and they are, but Cessna has a
yearning to go outside with the dogs.
She goes out with them
every morning, does her "business" and
then comes back in with them.
I think that she thinks she is a dog! It
is so funny. She doesn't want to go
outside unless her buddies are out
there, and when they come in, she comes
in. She has grown to be a wonderful cat,
though she was the runt, she has really
come into her own size-wise.
She tends to be more aloof, but not to
the point of timidness or
Piper is my sweetheart. She follows me
where every I go in the house and keeps
me company when I do laundry. She curls
up in my lap daily when I finally have
10 minutes to sit and read.
When I get a chance and find my digital
camera, I will be sure to e- mail them
to you. Cats, I am finding, are not easy
to photograph, but just so you know -
they both look wonderful!
Thank you, Suzanne. We are grateful to
have Piper and Cessna.
The Welborn Family
Wellington is doing fine. He has been
a pleasure to have as a pet. He has a
great personality & has binded well with
the whole family, grandchildren
included. He & our golden retreiver have
become the best of friends, play
together, & frequently sleep together.
The first thing most of our friends ask
when visiting is, where is Wellington?
Needless to say he is very spoiled & now
considers the house his private kingdom.
Well it’s been a LONG time, but
finally wanted to get back w/you in
regards to the kitten I purchased
from you. We did finally name him,
Charlie Murphy, and he’s a true joy
to own (actually he owns us….).
Murphy has one of the most unique
personalities I’ve ever come across
in a cat. He’s his own man, that’s
for sure! Not one day goes by that
he’s not up to something – he’s too
smart for his own good at times and
for sure, always does it HIS way!
I’ve attached a few pics for your
Hi, I was
planning on writing later. Max is
wonderful. Of course before we
left Atlanta I had to hold him, then
he hid under the front seat of the
car all the way home. When we got
home I kept him in my large master
bath for about 5 hrs. so he wouldn't
feel so overwelmed...got him to the
point where I could pet him...and
his lttle motor started purring. He
started eating and drinking and
using the litter box, so I opened
his space to include my bedroom. He
would do a quick sniff of me but
walk away and explore his new
space. He slept under my bed all
night, no crying at all.
he started warming up to me when I
sat on the floor...he was looking
for some affection. He would come
to me and rub up against me, allow
me to caress him and play with him.
He became much more relaxed as the
day went on, wanting to be by me(\\\\\)
those little marks are Max emailing
you! He did jump up on my bed last
night, but chose to sleep under the

so comfortable with me this morning,

of growling...Newman is so layed
back and definately not agressive,
they are having the occasional stare
down but no definate contact yet. I
don't think he knows what to make of
th little speed demon. They are
keeping a small distance between
them, I think they will be fine.
Max went up and
down the stairs for the first time,
as he came running down the steps
and approaching the last 2 steps,
Newman was waiting for him at the
bottom...eye to eye and had to put
on the breaks and make a quick
reverse turn...it was pretty funny.
He is having a
ball running around my lower level
and investigating every square
inch...not to mention discovering
many new toys to entertain himself
He is so soft and
desires affection and now approaches
me all the time...I guess he knows I
am his love source and affection. I
am really enjoying just spending the
day, watching him play and becoming
more comfortable with his new home.
I will keep you
updated on how he is doing and of
course send pics. Thank you so much
for this precious little
I just wanted to send a quick update to
you on little Sanchez. He is absolutely
adorable, and full
personality! He has already begun
exploring around the house and is making
friends with our resident cat with ease.
I'm sure that they will become the best
of friends once they get settled in.
Here's a nice photo that my husband took
of him this morning - what a ham!
Brought this little man
home from the airport yesterday.
He is very well adjusted.
Steve is not impressed at all.

in coordinating shipping - and for
providing us with such a wonderful and
well-socialized little kitty!

problems this spring, which was good. We

while and show it to others who may be

fabulous cats they are!

He is doing very well. He is becoming
increasingly more mischievous and
playful. We often find him climbing, or
at least trying to climb, over and on
top of everything, including us. He is
very curious about his new surroundings.
And, of course, he is very affectionate.
He has his very own area with plenty of
toys. Overall, therefore, he seems to be
adjusting quite well. He is drinking
and eating regularly. He seems to be
afraid of water, however, and is timid
when approaching his water dish at
times. He seems very healthy, too. His
ears appear to be bothering him less. We
have noticed that his eyes get very
watery and crusty when he sleeps,
though. We will be going to the vet
soon, just to get acquainted. I'll be
sure to let you know how he progresses
throughout the next couple weeks.
I had to send you these, she gets
more personality and more gorgeous
by the day!
Well I thought I'd wait the week
(that is tomorrow!) but can't wait
to update you on our Ashley, what a
joy she is, you have done such an
amazing job with her. She is full
of fun, loves all her toys, Da Bird
being the favourite, is independant
and a total joy to have around. You
would'nt know she has claws she is
She is a pickty eater and only
gobbles down her food when I mix in
the wet canned food, she is not too
crazy about the dry food and will
have a token mouthful once shes
eaten all the wet food. I tried
her on kitten treats but she does
not care for those. I would like
her to only eat the dry food but do
not want to do anything that might
upset her happy little life.
Her eyes were never really a problem
but have cleared up completely. She
still sneezes occationally and I am
almost finished the medicine.
Can you tell me which shampoo I
should buy and how often do you
suggest I bath her.
I bought the scoop free litter box
but so far she thinks its another
toy to play with. Maybe she is too
young what do you think?
It has been a few weeks since I wrote to
My first question has to be that Ashley
seems to make an attempt at miaowing but
does not succeed at all. We are not
sure if this is a problem or not as it
is quite disconcerting when on the odd
occasion she has got into a filing
cabinet, the dishwasher or a cupboard
and has not been able to get out, she
cannot make any sounds so we dont know
where she is. She does not like to
wear her collar and sometimes when I put
it on her teeth get stuck in it so I
dont let her wear it unless I can watch
Please let me know if this is normal for
her age. In all other respects she is
absolutely fine with super sensitive
There is good news! she is simply
divine still sweet, affectionate,
playful and extremely inquisitive
she really is a special little girl who
delivers endless joy.
I look forward to hearing from you
regarding her not miaowing.
I'm forwarding a bunch of pictures of
the babies. They are so much fun!
Fig has really become quite the loverboy
and olive is very curious. They love to
eat and Fig ends up hogging a lot of
Olive's food. I'm going to start calling
him Fig the Pig. They have started
sleeping with me and follow me from room
to room. The love to be picked up and
held and they both purr very loud!
They are growing like weeds - Fig
especially. Let me know if you want me
to send pics for your site.
Maggie is doing
extremely well. She's already
adapted to her new home (it actually
took her about ten minutes) and is
eating and drinking healthily. She
had a small poo-poo accident, but
nothing major. She also talks quite
a bit when she wants attention, and
already has an array of "toys".
She's learning quickly what's
acceptable and what isn't,
particularly to not follow us out
into the bedroom. Otherwise, she's
quite dog-like and likes to follow
us around all day. She has also
found how much fun it is to unroll
the toilet paper all the way around
the place, but has been good at
learning it's a no-no. I can safely
say she's been very happy,
particularly sampling different
kinds of food (don't worry, we're
informed as to what cats shouldn't

probably due to anxiety and the

I was going to contain her to one room,

over the house and has used her litter

I thought it time to give you an
update on Wellington who co-habitates
with the Coulons here in New
I was raised with cats, the house
never being without at least one,
but I can't remember ever having a
cat that I enjoy quite as much as
Wellington. He has become the focal
point of the family, a position in
which he appears very comfortable.
He has a great personality, always
willing to have a free head rub,
always happy, always getting into
something. When bored, he attacks
Lacy, our golden retreiver, jumping
on her back & hanging on for
dear-life. Lacy has learned to
tolerate these sneek attacks &
actually allows Wellington to sleep
with her on occasions.

which is about 200 miles from our
He had no troubles and sat in his
little pet bed which we placed on
the console between the seats of the
truck. Once we were at the show he
was very outgoing and had no trouble
at all making friends with the
spectators. In most cases he was
the one to make contact. We started
leash training as soon as we made
friends after we received him from
you and he is starting to get the
hang of it.
we were at the show, he stayed in my
chair and was the perfect
gentleman. Everybody was quite
impressed with him and could not get
over his behavior. I took a lot of
pictures with him interacting with
the spectators. I will be sending
you a disc with pictures of the show
and of Sebastian.
far as my wife and I are concerned,
he is the best kitty cat in the
world. He is a little bundle of
energy and is smart as can be. We
are having a wonderful experience
you might like to see Lucy at 18
months. She's 7 pounds of energy
She wakes up in a new world every
day and is pretty much in charge of

tired of her antics and take a swipe
at her. We're loving having her

Olive and Fig arrived safe and sound.
They are doing great and adjusting to
the new digs quickly. Olive is so social
and follows me everywhere I go. She is
such a sweetheart and loves to be
stroked. Her little motor is so cute.
Fig is taking a little longer to adjust
but is sweet as can be when I get my
hands on him. He really gets into the
chin and neck rubs.
They started using the litter box
immediately and have been good eaters
too. I am so happy they are finally here

sending them on their way. It really

much. He is already eating
well....my type of guy!
I'll keep you
posted on his progress
Also, Joey eats
like he never has eaten before????
I always leave dry food out - but
when I give him a little can kitten
food - he is a terror! I think he
will eat our dog's food if he
could!!! Is this normal??? I'm
worried maybe he has worms etc....I
will take him anyway to our vet -
but my other kitten eats well - but
not like this. I wonder if I should
feed him 3 times a day -especially
since he is so little???
He is such a
character - I love it. The most
inquisitive and curious thing
ever...trouble is his middle name
right now. He's adorable.
Thanks Suzanne. I
greatly appreciate your insight and
help. I always leave dry out and
they each have their own bowls of
food. I've never seen such an
appetite...but since we love food
ourselves - I appreciate his gusto
(I was kind of worried - seemed very
abnormal)! I just don't want him to
overdue it. But like you said, he
will soon feel more secure and
understand that he will be fed
regularly and that he doesn't have
to over due this each time. He was
even better with the dog food this

We had a good trip home, no

hit among the residents! I might

amazing what little it takes to

person. I'm sure many miss their
pets. My grandmother really enjoyed
our visit. Isabella is a sweet

Ouachita Mocha Bean "Bean" and
Ouachita CashthisCoin "Georgie"
Sorry to be so long updating you, but it's been a little crazy around here.
It took about a week, but we finally settled on a name for our little Tortie.
She was registered as Ouachita Mocha Bean, Bean for short. It was her
color, it reminded me of coffee when the cream had just been poured. She
seems to have adjusted to it pretty well.
As for her personality, she is everything you promised. From day
one, she has let everyone hold and pet her. I opened her kennel, showed her
the litter box and food and she was off making friends and exploring. She
never hid or was the least bit timid. She has also helped Georgie open
up. They sleep most nights in bed with me, Bean up close and Georgie at the
foot of the
bed. The nights they aren't with me they are busy racing around the house
playing all night long. There have been a couple of times my mother has had
to close her door because they get so roudy. Three or four times Georgie
has even let me hold her for a couple of minutes. She has also displayed
signs of nurturing with Bean and anytime the front door is open they can
both be found sitting side by side watching whatever is out there...birds,
people, bugs. Bean is a real joy to have and as you can see from the
pictures even Braeden, the baby (11 mos), is able to play with her.
In spite of having 2 cats already, my mother has fallen in love with #37,
the Cream Classic Tabby and White. Could you let me know how much you are
asking for him. I don't know that I can swing another one, but for her I'll
give it some thought.
Thanks again for Bean. We just love her.
The new baby is here safe and sound
and she is so adorable. Our first
meeting went very well. She was
very friendly, doing everything she
could to get our attention and
wanting us to pet her and even hold
her. I think she is going to be
perfect. She has already met the
vet and now she is meeting Georgie.
The vet went fine, but she keeps
growling at Georgie.
I thought Georgie was going to be
the one that would be upset, but she
is handling it very well.
Suzanne, I can not thank you enough
for this gift. I really do think
that she is going to be a perfect
fit with my gang. I haven't told
any of the grandkids yet. They are
coming tomorrow night and we decided
to surprise them. I'll let you know
how that goes.
I haven't come up with a name yet,
but am working on it. I want to see
her out and about a little before
deciding, but as soon as I have
something I'll let you know so we
can get her registered.
Thank you again. She is just

They get along great together & are an absolute riot to watch when they
play! We enjoy them both so much!
just wanted to share pictures of
Paddy from the banquet in June for
him winning 2nd Best of Breed in the
Southern Region. I hope you like
I just wanted
to share the news with everyone that
I just found by mistake and was
totally unaware of. I just learned
that Paddy is
CFA's 2006-2007 "2nd Best of Breed"
British Shorthair in Premier!
Here are some updated
pictures of Fergus. He
is such a love and is
getting to be such a big
boy. He has so much
years old today and is feisty as
ever! Hope all is well,
things are great
with buckley! i attached a picture
of him for you. he loves to nap in
our steeler helmet! we are so happy
to have him here. he is the most
playful and lovable kitten i have
ever seen. he keeps us company at
all times. he loves the shower and
he jumps in the tub everytime
someone gets a bath. we love him so
much and we are so grateful for all
of your help with our silver too. i
took them both to vet yesterday to
get tested and for buckleys shot.
they are both in perfect health.
thankyou so much again. buckley is
everything we wanted.
"Just a Minute....
And I will Pose!"
joining the Karpowica Family
wanted t let you know that Mac
arrived safe and sound and he is
resting comfortably from his trip.
He will be staying in Mom’s bedroom
as we slowly introduce him to
Charlie and Cobbie although Cobbie
has already struck up a friendship
with him and they started playing
together almost immediately.
Thank you so much ! Everyone at the
airport made a fuss over him, even
the pilot. We even exchanged emails
with a few people who wanted your
name as they loved his eyes and
coloring. Most people here in
Rochester aren’t familiar with the
British shorthairs, so when they do
see them, they really stand out.
We’ll send pictures soon!

What did you
Hello Dr. Henne,
It’s been awhile….
Leia(blue) is doing okay, but we
have to keep cleaning her right ear
at least twice a week, we think that
we should start her on the tresaderm
once in awhile to get her ear all
Could you send us some and also let
us know how often we should treat
her and the duration? And also how
we should go about paying you
(check, credit card, etc…)..
Please read the email stream below
for the history on Leia.
I’ve also attached here a picture of
Leia and Orso. It’s misleading
because Orso(cream) it’s ~11lbs vs
Leia(blue) ~9bls but she looks much
bigger than him in the picture
so we are excited
that april is turning 1 year old in just
a few days...but we wanted to know if
there was anything we could get for
her as a birthday treat (like fresh
fish??) that would also be safe.
we promise to send you a picture of the
birthday girl on her big day.
thanks for all the advise. we are SO
happy with our girl.

We absolutely love
our kitty, Cheerio that we got last
December! He loves Tennessee. We have,
however, run into a dilemma. Our
youngest child, Gabriel, was diagnosed
with being sensitized to the cat
allergen. He is allergic to Cheerio.
Since Gabriel has a minor history of
wheezing, the physician is recommending
that we find a new home for Cheerio
because this allergy increases Gabriel's
risk for bronchial hyperresponsiveness
and asthma. Though not officially
diagnosed with a cat allergy our
Daughter has reactive airway disease, a
precursor to asthma. Finding a new home
for Cheerio is something that we do not
want to do if possible, but will do so
I was wondering if you had any
recommendations for people in this
situation regarding living with cats.
Second, if we need to find a new home
for him, would you please help us find
I cannot tell you how sad this makes us.
Cheerio instantly became part of our
family and the thought of him not
beingable to have a cat in the home is
literally devastating to me, a lifelong

Dutchess is doing wonderfully. She
likes my husbands law office (in
We find her sleeping in banker boxes
along side client files. ha ha!
She likes to play
alot. She drinks alot of water. Her
and Muffin get along just fine. She
comes running when we call her name.
She has many toys but
favors the ones you put in her
crate. I have taken her outside on a
leash when I walk Muffin. She
doesn't seem to mind. She used to
sleep underneath the bed, now she sleeps
up on the bed all night. She wakes
me up at 5:30 am daily, wanting
fresh food. She doesn't eat very
much hard food.
Dutchess will be home alone for a
week b/c we are traveling to Paris.
I have a pet sitter coming in
3 times a day. I hope she does not
get too lonely. She also is getting
big fast. You should see peoples
reactions when they see her...they
say they have never seen a kitten so
beautiful. We love her. Thanks
Suzanne. I will send updated
pictures later on today.
Lance, Terrie, Muffin and Dusty
Dutchess arrived safely. Thanks for
the food, crate, blanket and toys.
She is absolutely adorable. She
immediately began eating and used
her little box as soon as we arrived
home. She gave Muffin, our poodle, a
big hiss, so that may take some
time. I will send you some pictures
once she decides that it is okay to
be out of her crate.
You are the top of a line

purchase a kitten through you!!!

to drop a note on Elizabeth.
She is doing wonderful. We
celebrated her 1st birthday this
week. The boys and I took
her to PetSmart for a new
collar, toy and a small can of

we got home and she had her

been great for the boys.
One person commented that if she
didn't look like a cat you would
think she was a dog. She
still enjoys riding in the car.
The girls at the bank and
cleaners are disappointed if she
is not with me. The
weather has permitted her to be
outside with us. Stacy and
the boys hit golf balls in the
afternoons and she chases them
all over the yard.
If we are watering patio plants,
she is slapping at the water.
She loves to run from the
backdoor all the way to the
the steps to the top. She
will sometimes take the slide
down. We love to watch her
chasing after a bug or bird.
Elizabeth also has learned our
bedtime routine. Every
night after we read, she looks
for me to pick her up and Lee
Pearson gives her a kiss and
then she snuggles with BJ under
his covers. After they go
to sleep she gets up.
She is just
great. I have attached a

in to see the cats every several
days. I hope the site is back up
Emma is doing wonderfully. She is my
little furry daughter.
I will write soon.
At this rate, at 6 months old, I guess she's really
going to be a BIG girl. I've actually cut down just a little bit on the dry
food, just a little less than 1/2 cup twice a day and 1/3 canned twice a
day. She seems to be okay with this.
She's only affectionate with me when the lights are out and I'm in bed, then
she's all over me, or in the kitchen when she's ready to eat. Other than
that she always runs when you approach her, especially other people and she
doesn't like to be held. She's very playful, though...we have various games
she likes to play...hide and seek, swinging in the basket and she loves to
go in the car. All I have to do is show her her carrier and she jumps in as
lies down. Very good in the car.
Fergie was 6 months on the 5th
of April and yesterday she weighed 8.3 lbs. Is this too much? Can you give me
some sort of guide line for feeding her? This is what I give her: Every morning
6 am about 1/2 cup dry Iam's Kitten Food and 1/3 of a small can Iam's Kitten
Food. Same in the afternoon about 6. Should I be giving her less and will her
flabby belly go
away if I cut down? She's pretty active, but maybe too much food......
Things are great. She loves going in the
car. I take her when I run errands or
go to Starbucks to get coffee. She sits
in the window and takes it all in.
Yesterday she went with us when we went
to a friends house to help in the yard.
She sat in the sun in the back window
and played with her mouse. Then we went
to eat breakfast. She used the little
litter box she came with, and although
she had litter everywhere, I was glad
that she used it.
Hope your and your gang is doing well.
Fitz and Clicquot "Klee Co"
Sorry it has taken so long to get
back to you with a name. Anyway,
after great debate we have decided
to call our new little girl Cliquot.
In case your French is not great
the pronounciation is “Klee Co”.
Fitz is an absolute delight. He has
lost all of his Kitten fur and is
into everything. However, he
is carried around so much I’m not
sure if he will remember how to
Lastly, would you please provide the
earliest date that you would be
comfortable letting Cliquot go so we
can make travel arrangements. We
are planning on flying to Little
Rock to pick her up as we are not
comfortable with her being shipped.

Just wanted to let you know that
Paddy had a one year check-up
and Doctor Gates thought he
looked great (teeth and all) and
he weighs in at 11 pounds all
muscle..not a bit of fat on him.
Paddy has now taken to a raw
diet..no can food for him
Do you want
the newsletter or my Oxyfresh
website? (check for Rebecca's link
on the link Page)
got an email from
Julie Hanson who has
two of your kittens
who are about
Paddy's age and I
explained to her on
what to do..believe
it or not Paddy has
no problems with his
teeth at all...as I
am always looking at
everyone's teeth. It
seems my red Maine
Coon suffer more
with gingivitis then
any other color.
Anyway..I told Julie
what to order and
how to use it and
she did and I told
her to be patient,
but be diligent with

Did I tell
you that I just found out that Paddy
is the 28th Best British Shorthair
in TICA in the Mid Atlantic and that
is just from one show and he beat
out the 3rd Best British Shorthair
- I just wanted to let you know how
well Paddy did this weekend at the
cat show at High Point, NC. He made
4 out of 6 finals and he got 3rd
Best Allbreed Cat in Premiership,
4th Best Allbreed Cat in
Premiership, 9th Best Allbreed Cat
in Premiership, and 10th Best
Allbreed Cat in Premiership.
Now we are taking
3 months off from showing and then we
are going to run him for a Regional Win
starting in May.
Just let you know Pebbles is doing good
with us. He just turned 1 year old few
days ago. I attached some of the
pictures we took in this week. :)

Here are new pictures of Winston &
Colombo, Winston is huge!!
We have switched them to Eukenubauh
Adult Indoor Cat Food for Less Active
Cats since Winston especially has a
tummy on him, hopefully he'll lose a
pound or two with this food. They are so
funny at times, Winston loves to drink
out of the bathroom sink faucet but has
a unique way of doing so, he sits down
in the sink and puts his paw under the
stream of water and then licks the water
it comes off his paw. Other times he
will actually just stick his head under
the faucet and just lets the water pour
over his head then shakes Shis head like
a dog would to get the water off and
water goes flying everywhere! I actually
think he would walk into our stall
shower if we'd let him. Columbo on the
other hand doesn't guard cat at the back
door because that is where we feed the
outside cats (he can see them thru the
glass door) and he does not like them
and will talk and howl at them.
Hope everything is going well with you
and your family. Take care,
Pamela S. Pivinski
My name is Robert (Bob) Wells. And, as you can see from the e-mail below, my
wife and I purchased Winston II from you some time ago, in August of 2004.
Winston has grown into a very handsome young man and we are very proud to be his
"parents". He is about 14 lbs. now and until the week of March 1st was in good
health. He has had all of his shots and we feed him IAMs pouches daily which he
loves. We also give him dry food which he only rarely eats.
On 3-1-07 we left town for vacation. Winston stayed in the home with "Grandma,
Esther" and we thought all was well. Winston and my Mother-in-law, Esther are
good "buddies" and Esther has been staying with us and feeding Winston in our
home since Jan. of this year. During the day Esther is the only one home and
they get along very well.
About 3-4 days into our vacation Esther began to tell us Winston was drinking
lots of water and was urinating frequently. This continued until we got home on
3-11. This past Tuesday, we took Winston to our Vet. The Vet said Winston had a
BUN of 51. The Vet prescribed a diet change, to KD and amoxicillin (in case
Winston had a urinary infection). We began the amonicillin yesterday (twice
daily). Today, Winston is somewhat lethargic and seems thirsty (we are giving
him water via a syringe every hour or so). He is not urinating as much nor as
often. He has refused to eat any of the new KD food so we have begun to feed him
his old IAMs food again. We hope to begin to mix in the new food in with the old
IAMs slowly. After eating some of his old food this evening, he threw up. He has
thrown up in the past but not on a regular basis; this is the first time he has
thrown up since we left on 3-1.
Can you help us with the issues described above? Are there any traits which his
Mother, Father or siblings may have exhibited that could shed some light on this
Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated...we love Winston and only want
to see him healthy and happy!
Thank you for your time.
Good to hear
is doing fine. She and Lazelle now have run of the house while I am
gone during the day and although Lazelle still hisses at her when Soren gets
too close, they manage to scurry off in opposite directions. I don’t know
who is using which litter box. I catch lazelle in both, but have only
seen Soren use her own. They are both sleeping in bed with me now
which brings me great comfort. Soren is much more playful than Lazelle and
gets more of my attention, which I think Lazelle is jealous of, but when I
encourage her to join in and she just doesn’t want to partake. Such totally
different personalities! The remind me of the aunts who raised me!
Lazelle is like the one we had to endure although she had a nasty
temperament and Soren is like the one we all adored (although Lazelle is
named after that one!)
I love Soren more and more every day. She is the PERFECT cat for my
giving you an update on
and Lazelle are getting along
somewhat better (knock on wood!)
Whenever I am home, they both
have free access to the whole
house and I now keep Soren in my
bedroom with the door closed
when I am gone. They both
are very cautious around each
other and Lazelle still hisses
when they are too close, but the
other night they both were lying
on my bed, (about 3 feet apart)
and although Lazelle was
growling a tad under her breath,
it was the first time they had
been that close without major
disapproval from the
other. Lazelle sleeps on the bed
with me and Soren sleeps in her
bed on the floor next to mine.
developed a slight cold so when
I took her to the vets, it was a
heck of a time getting her
there. She would not go
into the carrier (the hard
plastic type with a wire gate on
the front) and managed to
scratch me so badly, I thought
she had torn my earring out of
my ear. I later discovered
that it was only a scratch that
bled somewhat heavily until I
could get it under control.
eventually put her into a
cardboard carrier box that
loaded from the top, with her
blankie and a toy and although
she was still reluctant, at
least I got her in there.
All the girls at the vet's had
never seen a BSH and thought she
was exquisite (which of course,
is a given!). When they
took her out to examine her, she
apparently LEAPED out of the box
and scurried around a great
deal. I had her nails
trimmed and they gave me some
orangey liquid meds to give to
her which have already helped
tremendously. I mix it
with some moist fishy tasting
food as she would not take it
seems to want to use Soren's
litter box when I am around and
I try to discourage it, but
can't watch her constantly.
Is this normal and is it OK?
Also...just to let you know, my
neighbor (who doesn't even like
cats) really loves Soren.
Says she is the prettiest cat
she has ever seen. I tell
her (Soren) every day that is
she is the most beautiful thing
in my life. She doesn't
seem to like to be held (did she
when you had her?), so I just am
constantly petting her and
scratching her behind her ears
and under her chin which she
can't get enough of.
again for allowing me to be her
new mom! I love her
Soren is more beautiful than I could
imagine! I promise to love,
honor and cherish her till death do
us part! And thank you for the
Welcome package, that was so
thoughtful of you.
She is understandably timid, but on
Saturday night I just gave her her
own space in the hotel room.
She spent a lot of the time on the
seat of a chair that was under a
table. I sang to her softly
and moved slowly from the bed
towards her with some toys and
eventually she came down to play.
I let her sniff me out and she
warmed up as soon as I started
scratching her behind her ears.
When I went back to the bed, she
jumped up and we played some more.
The first thing I did when I got
back home was to put my cat
(Lazelle) in a bedroom and closed
her in. Then I brought Soren
in and put her in an enclosed area
in my furnished basement. Got
her bed all set up, pulled out all
the new toys, set out her food and
water and litter box. At one
point she got out and although I
managed to block it off so she
couldn’t get upstairs, she found a
good hiding place that took me a
while to find her. My water
heater and heat/ac unit are in a
little room all by themselves and it
has an area that is only accessible
by little creatures and that is
where I found her. I just sat
by that opening, singing to her and
playing with couple of toys she
could see and hear and eventually
she came out. We played for sometime
and before I went to bed, I checked
on her and all seemed well.
Lazelle knows there is someone else
in the house, that’s for sure!
She was sniffing me and was on guard
to see who might come through the
bedroom door as I lay there reading
last night. She has access to
the area in which Soren is being
kept so I imagine she will go down
and sniff at the door while I am
The cat show was a real eye opening
experience! And Kathy is
great; I don’t know how she does it!
All the cats I saw were amazing and
I might see what all it involves to
enter Soren in the upcoming KC show
Thanks again for everything. I
will be sure and send you updates as
find several pictures of the
kittens. They are doing well. The
boys received two vaccines last
month; the girl is due in April.
They are beautiful and have great
personalities. My family and I enjoy
them very much. I can not thank you
enough for them.
Here is Bentley relaxing on the couch.
Suzanne, wanted to drop you a
line and let you know how Aengus
is doing and include a couple
recent pictures. As you can see
he is really growing and
developing that classic "Brit"
look. He is very healthy,
extremely smart and has taken
over the house as his domain. He
constantly checks on all of us
as he likes to know where each
of us is at all times.
He seems to want to make sure we
are all present and accounted
for. He sleeps in our bed and
doesn't even budge all night and
seems very content just to be
with us wherever we are. He is
really the perfect pet. No muss
no fuss and a pleasure to have
around. Thanks for wonderful
Steve, Bonnie and Hope
Aengus is doing great. He now
"owns" the house including
sleeping at the head of our bed.
He is very happy, active and
playful. He has been pretty good
about scratching things and is
learning what he can scratch and
what he can't. Bonnnie gave him
a bath and trimmed his nails on
Sunday and he did pretty good.
He is also growing very fast and
has lost alot of his kitten look
All in all,
things are working out great. I
am on the road right now but
will take some pic's in a few
weeks and send them to you.
JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW ANNIE AND
FLAME ARE DOING WELL.
ANNIE IS VERY SOCIAL AND LOVES TO BE
PETTED, SHE SLEEPS BESIDE MY PILLOW
EVERYNIGHT. IF ONE OF THE DOGS COME
TOWARD HER SHE JUST HISS'S AND OFF THEY
GO. ANNIE IS UP ON THE VANITY WITH ME
EVERY MORNING WHEN I'M SAVING AND
GETTING READY FOR WORK. SHE LOVES TO BAT
THE WATER IF YOU LEAVE IT RUNNING AND
THEN WHEN YOU TURN IT OFF, SHE WANTS TO
LICK THE WATER OFF THE FAUCET.
FLAME IS STARING TO REALLY COME OUT OF
HER SHELL. SHE AND OUR OTHER CAT TOMMY
ACTUALLY PLAY TOGETHER. SOME NIGHTS I
WAKE UP AND SHE IS NEXT TO ME WITH ANNIE
IN BED. FLAME CRAVES ATTENTION, SHE
COMES RUNNING AS SOON AS I SIT DOWN. SHE
IS NOT ONE FOR BEING HELD, BUT PUT HER
ON YOUR LAP AND PET HER AND RUB HER NECK
AND BOY DOES PURR. SHE IS MORE
TIMID WITH THE DOGS. IF ONE GOES TOWARDS
HER SHE RUNS UNDER THE BED.
SO, THEY ARE BOTH DOING GREAT AND
EVERYONE THAT VISITS JUST LOVES THEM.
JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE, HAVE
A GREAT DAY AND TALK AGAIN SOON.
CH Sunami Red Flame Chaser
Sorry to not have responded to you
earlier. I brought her to the vet last
Saturday just to be sure that everything
was ok. She took a urine sample (that
was ok) and checked her anal glands, but
she didn't find anything abnormal. She
just put Kasumi on antibiotics and gave
me a syringe and a small container to
pick up the next discharge (if any
happens). Kasumi was a bit traumatized
by the thermometer, but she quickly
forgot and explored the whole room (I
picked her up three times from the vet's
sink and twice for the cupboards).
Everybody was saying that she has
gorgeous and that her hair was so soft,
she was purring like crazy!
Since then, she hasn't has any
discharge, and she's doing well. I also
give her Laxatone as hairball treatment
once a week, so it may be that. We also
changed her dry food (at the beginning
we gave her Iams, but now we give her
Science's Hill). Could it have been a
problem of diet?
Thank you so much to check up on her
Hello again !
Well this morning she had no discharge
whatsoever, just as usual. We will
continue observing her carefully for a
while, and we'll talk about it during
her next checkup (we wanted to bring her
in for a routine checkup soon anyway).
And about her being less energetic,
forget about it ! Maybe yesterday she
sensed that we were worried and became
less playful, because this morning, she
is as explosive as ever. Just out of
curiosity, what meds would you have sent
? Could it have been her anal glands
acting up (we read some stuff on it on
the internet, but we don't have a DVM
;-) ? Maybe her diet is missing
something, she is currently on iams.
We noticed she is progressively losing
her tabby, and her eyes now have a
wonderful deep color to them. Do you
know about what age she will have her
definite looks ?
I would have sent a
drug called Rondizole and put her on it
for 21 days. I also would have
added laxatone for hairballs twice per
week for the next month then routinely.
Loosing her teeth will also make her not
feel well. Suzanne
Everything is going well with Kasumi,
she is now an adorable young kitten. We
finally managed to take some good
pictures of her, have a look ! We are a
little worried because this morning she
had a pinkish/brownish, very stinky
discharge from her behind. Right now her
anus is a little moist with apparently
the same substance. However her
digestive functions seem ok (she eats,
drinks normally, urinates and defecates
regularly, and her stool have normal
consistency). She is slightly less
energetic than usual, but it may just be
her growing up. Do you think this is
cause for alarm ? We will bring her to
the vet tomorrow morning if things don't
Everything is going well with Kasumi,
she is now an adorable young kitten. We
finally managed to take some good
picturesof her, have a look ! We are a
little worried because this morning she
had a pinkish/brownish, very stinky
her behind. Right now her anus is a
little moist with apparently the same
substance. However her digestive
functions seem ok (she eats, drinks
normally, urinates and defecates
regularly, and her stool have normal
consistency). She is slightly less
energetic than usual, but it may just be
her growing up. Do you think this is
cause for alarm ? We will bring her to
the vet tomorrow morning if things don't
Ok, so we've put
our Kasumi on antibiotics, hopefully it
will also clear her
left eye (she closes it from times to
times, but stops doing so when we brush
it with a clean moist towel) ?
Other than that
she is a very lovely animal and
exceedingly smart ! She was a little
afraid of the bumps in the car, but as
soon as she was home she explored
everywhere, showing us nooks and
crannies we did not even suspect existed
in our apartment. Her personality is
incredible, she is extremely playful but
also sometimes simply she keeps purring
on our knees. She does not mind spending
time alone when we are working, she just
comes to check us out when we come back,
and then, on to her games !
Like you said she
is very much into electronics (see the
photo, and how she is assisting me in
writing this e-mail properly !), but a
paper catalog will also do just fine for
her to rest on... We had absolutely no
problem whatsoever for her "education",
she found her litter right of the bat,
and the few rules we laid down for her
are now almost completely assimilated
(she does not try to go where we tell
her not to any longer). We believe she
likes us, and for sure we like her very

Hello, this is Kris
Butler from Pontotoc, Mississippi. I
bought a British Shorthair kitten
from you a few months back. The
kitten (Maximus) is doing well.
He is for sure part of the family.
He is sitting right by me now
I have sent you an updated picture!
I have been
trying to get on your website
for several days and it doesn't
respond. Just thought you might
ringworm is completely cleared
up now and she has fur growing
back on her paw. I got the
prescription filled that my vet
here wrote but Noel wouldn't
have anything to do with it
since it was orange flavored. If
she should get it again I would
rather purchase it from you
since she took yours readily.
She is doing wonderful. Growing
like a weed and becoming more
and more social every day. We
are still considering a playmate
for her so don't be surprised if
we don't contact you concerning
kittens in the future. I will
send pictures as soon as we can
get her to sit still long enough
for a good one.
for all your help.
Talk to you
We recently purchased Noel from you
and are just in love with her. She
adds hours of pleasure to our day
and we are having so much fun with
I have always had at least one cat
(except for the 3 months after my 13
year old Persian died) so I am
absolutely in heaven. I just saw
your new retiree and wanted to see
how much you are selling her for.
Noel would love to have a sister.
Let me know all the details and get
back with me as soon as possible.
Thanks for our precious Noel and I
look forward to hearing from you
Just a quick
update. Noel is doing fine. She explores
all the time and is very playful!
Our alarm can be retired because she is
up in bed at 5:30 sharp every AM. Just
wants to be near us and gives a little
nudge. She loves to be around us
and follows from room to room. Of course
everything is on her terms but very
affectionate. Take care…….
Just wanted to
let you know how well Liberty is
doing. She has really warmed
up to me and seems to love her
new home. I have completely
fallen in love with her. I
took her to the Vet and she checked
out well. Has a little bit of
a cold from her flight from Little
Rock, but not bad enough for
treatment. She sleeps at
my feet on the bed with me every
night, she even comes out from under
the bed when I call her. I
have nicknamed her Libby. She
understands no when I say no to her
when she is thinking about getting
on the kitchen counter.
Having never had
an indoor pet before, I am surprised
at how much company she is - now I
wonder how I ever lived without her!
I will send
pictures of her soon.
Lionel behaved beautifully in his first

I would send you an update.
last email we discussed
working with Georgie with
treats....well, I got a wide
selection to try and would
you believe that no matter
how they are offered she
won't eat a single one.
I didn't mix them or even
offer them at the same time,
but I had no luck with any
one of them. I've never seen
anything like it.
made progress in other areas
in that she will now jump up
on the chair I'm in and will
let me pet her.
However, she won't lay down
on my lap nor will she let
me hold her. If I move
too fast or she thinks that
I'm going to pick her up she
jumps off. She will
also sit for long periods of
time letting me brush her,
but as with the petting I
can't hold her or move
suddenly. She loves to
sleep on her "tree" and runs
through the house like she
owns it. She even
comes to the back door to
meet me when she hears the
garage door. With all
this you would think she
would let me approach her,
hold her, or even pet her if
she is laying down and I
pass by, but that's just not
won't come out and sit or be
around any of the
family. She only darts
through the room. As
long as no one is in her
path or close by, she will
go to her food and water,
but then it's right back to
a hiding place.
Everyone keeps trying, but
my granddaughter Peyton is
the one that is getting
frustrated. She is
dying to pet Georgie.
She's almost three and when
Georgie runs past and she
can't touch her she plops
down on the sofa and lets
out this hugh sigh and
says "oh man!" It's
cute to hear her, but you
feel bad for her at the same
time because she wants it so
badly. Guess we'll just
have to wait and see what
to have some new pictures
the next time so you can see
how Georgie's grown
since she got here.
you have a wonderful and
Sorry to be
so long getting back to you.
Georgie seems to be settling in
okay. Within a few days
she started coming out and
sitting on the furniture in the
room with us, but the slightest
move made her jump and run.
She doesn't run off quite so
easily now, but she still won't
let us come toward her, she has
to come to us and proximity is
limited. We can't pet her yet
unless she initiates it.
It starts with her tail and
within a minute of two we can
pet her from her neck to her
tail. She doesn't quite
trust us around her face.
If we move too quickly she
scoots away and will check
things out from a distance
before she gets near you again.
Forget picking her up. The
few times we tried, and we were
careful, she literally ripped
into us. When the family
was together she darted through
the room and a couple of
times sat at a distance and
check everything out for a
minute or two. I play with
her everyday getting her to
chase things and such, and I've
tried to give her treats,
but she won't come to me. I'm
sure I'm headed in the right
direction, but do wonder if she
will ever bond. I don't expect
her to be picked up or held or
in someone's lap all the time,
but it would be nice on
occasion. Any suggestions
would be welcomed.
a couple of pictures of Georgie.
I thought you might want to see
if she's changed any.
She's definitely beautiful.
Everyone that's been able to see
First I should
tell you that she got dubbed
Georgie. We tried hard to come
up with something that tied to her
registered name and ended up doing a
kind of six degrees of separation.
You know... from Cash and coin to
Dollar, Penny, Dime, Quarter to
George Washington, whose pictured on
the dollar and the quarter, to
Georgie. It was kind of a
fluke, but we think it worked out
come out of the kennel, but went
immediately under the sofa and hid.
After a while she started peeking
out and even sneaked out several
times to explore a little ,but she
was really nervous and even started
meowing a bit. I spent time off and
on during the evening talking to her
and trying to coax her over to me.
I did get her to play a little,
chasing one of the toys.
This morning she
was still under the sofa and
wouldn't come to me, but I was able
to coax her into the kennel pretty
easily so she could go to the vet.
She did fine and everyone there just
loved her. I don't think any
of them had actually seen a BS other
than in a picture. Dr.
Driscoll removed a suture that
had poked through. Said that
it wasn't uncommon, nothing to worry
about, and that she was very healthy
and was looking forward to taking
care of her.
She's back under
the sofa this afternoon, but she's
sleeping peacefully. I'm
hoping that by this evening
she'll explore a little more. For
now I've limited her access to the
main floor, but once she is a little
more secure I'll open the rest of
the house to her.

Here's a couple
of photos of my two sleepy cats.
I continue to be amazed at the
silvery beauty of Max's fur.
Doesn't Leo look happy sleeping on
the rug? They both enjoy
watching me work at the potter's
wheel, as well as watching while I
do handbuilding.....plus the
basement is one big place for a hide
and seek game for them.
They are actually about the same
size and weight, but their shape is
quite different. I think Leo
will end up being much bigger than
Max as he seems to be bigger boned.
At any rate, they both have
wonderful personalities, are
beautiful, loving (when they feel
like it) and just a joy to have.
Just a quick
is fitting in just great.
He is a wonderful cat, friendly,
loving, even talks a little.
Everyday the three of them are
getting along better and better.
This morning he watched me trim
pots, then later when I was in
my recliner he jumped up into my
lap, rolled over on his back,
and let me pat him. His
eyes seem to run a little, so
I've been using a wet wash cloth
to wipe them a couple of times a
Cold!!!! oh my
goodness...the house was 48 this
morning! I'm surprised I
couldn't see my breath.
It's warmer now of course, since
the fires are going. I
guress someone turned down the
thermostat? It's a good
thing he came when he did.
Thank you so much for giving me
the opportunity to adopt such a
some pictures shortly...first I
need to vacuum real good since
he plops down anywhere and seems
to be a magnet to dust!
Here's some recent pictures
of your two cats and my old
boy. The three of them
are getting along pretty
well but they do have sort
of a pecking order.
Shadow backs down to Max,
Max is intimidated a little
by Leo, and Leo runs from
pleases him to no end.
Lately I have caught Shadow
giving Leo a gentle lick
though (cleaning his face),
so I think he really likes
him .... just likes the fact
that a cat runs from him.
Max and Leo spend a lot of
time playing together and
running around and both of
them enjoy being my studio
A week ago I began to find a
bunch of little
sticks...twigs really, and
wondered where they were
coming from and assumed they
came in with the fire wood.
Then one day I went to the
basement to do some work and
both Max and Leo followed
along but when we got to the
wheel, Leo jumped up on the
shelves where I put my pots,
got to the highest one,
stepped on one pot that was
drying upside down, reached
up to the timber just under
the first floor and picked
some twigs from a bird nest
I had stuck up there.
Then he jumped down, ran up
the stairs and across the
floor, then returned to get
Today when we got back from
being out, Leo jumped up in
my lap anxious to get
patted, then took a long nap
there. Did you
notice the cover on the book
- which blocked me?
They are wonderful cats.
Right now when Shadow or Max
has the chance they growl.
Black Leo doesn't seem to
mind too much....he's very
curious and ready to explore
more of the house. I
think once they can sniff
each other...when the other
isn't looking..they will
begin to get along. I
hope Shadow is motherly with
Leo like he is with Max.
He would have been a great
mother cat. Black Leo
is so loving....he curled up
in Sylvia's arm while she
was in her bed and just
layed there purring and

temperature was below zero by

great.She is a love. She is the best
thing to come along in a quite some
time.She is very active and so I
have not had a chance to take a
picture.She has adapted to our
routine quite well.She developed
some crystals in her urine and so my
vet has put her on Hill’s SD in
hopes that it will clear up the
situation. How I discovered this is
that she was urinating in the kitty
beds and on the carpet. My vet is
rechecking her urine next Monday.
Her new diet must be working because
had an accident in over a week.

telling you this.

Stephen and Teresa
She's all love, very forgiving, bundles of energy and
takes no one seriously at all ... I absolutely love her. I took her to my
vet today along with Tigger, her other roommate. They're quite a pair and
kiss each other all the time; however, she even manages to wear him out too
with all her energy.
She's quite the entertainer and our home is cat heaven or Disneyland for
cats. She's thrilled with the three story custom scratching post and
carpeted open stairs. She's been playing all day and into the evening, and
then sleeping all night in bed with us.
Thank you so much ... she's absolutely perfect!
Bernard, Jeff, Tigger & Rosie!
Rosie's doing wonderful ... she's driving us crazy!
However, we still love her dearly; she's constantly playing and running
around the house nonstop! We believe that she's on the move 20 hours a
day and rest for maybe 4 hours ... if we're lucky! She's driven Tigger
(our Tabby) to the brink of alcoholism. He tried bitting her last
night at because he had just had enough; unfortunately for him he bit off
more than he could chew because she swatted him in the face and just
keep on going!
She's relentless and we love her. She's definitely
in her terrible two's! I'll send you some pictures soon!

Higgins and Hodge
Suzanne, just a note to tell you that
they are doing great! Higgins is better every day. Much less
skittish and allows you to pet him and pick him up without running away
as he did in the beginning. We were out of town a lot the end of
February, so had someone come over once or twice a day to check on
them…didn’t want to board them. They seem glad to have us back.
They sleep with us most nights and are
surprisingly good. We have nights where they want to play too
much, so need to close the door, but mostly works out well. They
love playing with each other and like the dog a lot too. It has
finally gotten warm enough here to have the windows open, and it is a
whole new world for them to sit in the sill and watch through the
Funny that they are so quiet.
Rarely meow, but do make sort of snuffling noises when they want
something. We are very pleased and have taken a thousand pictures
Hope all is well with you. Must
be beautiful down there this time of year.
Suzanne, I wanted to let you know that
Higgins is a lot better. He used to be much harder to pick up and
would run away all the time. He spent a lot of time under the couch.
I think he is about 5 weeks behind Hodge in
interacting well with humans and the dog. He is just now jumping on
the bed in the morning to lie down between us. In addition, he nuzzles
the dog now, and purrs around her. These are things Hodge has been
doing for at least a month.
Neither of them meow unless they are in
trouble. Hodge got stuck in the fridge one day as I closed him up
without seeing him. He meowed like crazy to get out. Hodge makes
little moist snorty noises, and now Higgins has just started doing that too.
He also purrs more.
Their eye and noise discharge is
unremarkable. I put some of the ointment on their faces, under the
eyes and around the nose about every other day, but no big deal.
They are about 4 months now and seem to be
gaining well. Higgins is still a little bigger than Hodge, but you
can’t tell from the wrestling who is bigger, as they both go at it.
About every week or so, Higgins will spend
a while sucking on Hodge’s belly. They seem to enjoy it, as both are
purring, but worry about Hodge getting skin sores. I separate them
after a bit, as Higgins can be pretty pushy in nuzzling Hodge. Clearly
a calming thing for Higgins.
We are very pleased and find them so
beautiful. The plumber who came yesterday couldn’t get over how pretty
they were. Anyway, hope you are well. One of my vets, Robin
Goodyear, may be contacting you. She was interested in getting a black
Kaye M. Smith
Suzanne, they are doing great….close to
4 pounds each. Their tails are longer and their fur is less ‘two-level’ and
more uniform. Higgins’ stripes and spots are much more pronounced and he is
a little darker all over. His fur is thicker, not as soft at Hodge’s, but
really soft and rich. They are starting to get that under the chin
jowliness, looking more chubby. Both have gold eyes and I can’t really tell
that Hodge’s are more gold then Higgins.
No meows unless
they get scared, like getting lost in
the basement. Hodge does make a little
squeaky sound when he can’t find
Higgins. Hodge also growls when they
Hodge is very easy
to pick up and will come when you call
him. Higgins seems to know his name and
will look at you when you talk to him,
but still skittish in getting picked up.
He reminds me of a two year old that
really doesn’t know what he wants, as
once I get him, he loves to be held and
have his belly and chin rubbed.
I wipe out their
eyes and around their noses every day
with a warm washcloth and sort of wipe
them down all over. Still some
discharge, but reduced. An occasional
sneeze, but they are really fine. They
seem to like the daily attention and
then spend forever cleaning up
afterward. I have also gotten them used
to being brushed a little.
The dog is fine
and Hodge seems to think she is
harmless. Higgins is more careful.
My husband enjoys
playing with them and the laser pointer,
as they will chase it forever.
We are really
pleased. I can see the future of two
lovely companions for us and the
dog….just need one more dog and we will
be up to the legal animal limit in our
little town! Inka is just 3 and these
guys are babies, so really nice to have
three healthy young ones for a change.
We had the arthritic geriatric lab and
the diabetic cat before, so these three
are a breeze to take care of!
Hope all is good
with you…saw some ice down there in your
area. We have been lucky so far this
year. Thanks again!
Good evening. I hope all is going well. Frosty is
He is growing an aweful lot; he weighs eight pounds and almost looks like a full
I believe all his adult teeth are in now and he enjoys me assisting him in
brushing them. Our vet gave us feline tooth paste and a "fingertip" tooth brush.
He loves to chew the brush and allows me to move it all around his teeth. They
really stand out when he smiles.
He seems to snore when he sleeps now. If I remember correctly, you mentioned
once that the Brits are "nassely". He seems okay and doesn't gasp as he breaths;
is "snore" normal?
He still sleeps with us at night and kneeds as he goes to sleep; I hope that
lasts forever! Once I take more pictures, I'll send more your way.
Take care. v/r Della
Wellington is amazing. I left him
have about 2 or 3 hours down time to chill. Then when I looked in on him he
darted out of the "cat room" & has literally taken over the house. He met the
dog & quickly established the rules of the relationship. He met the kids
& played & ran about with them till about 2200 when I made him go to bed. He was
up bright & early this morning, saw the kids off to school & is now supervising
a crew putting up an awning on the back patio.

Maggie and Max
They are both doing well. Maggie took a
little longer to adjust here than Max
but her size really didn't hold her bac
like I thought it would. It took a while
to get her over the eye thing and I
guess cold virus she had picked up so I
tried not to put her under anymore
stress than I needed to. She is still a
little short legged girl but she is
fattening up. Max makes about three of
her. She has met the boxer and at first
was a little taken back. She went up one
side of me and down the other, caught me
off guard and the boxer only came up to
the door window! Ha Ha. But she has
taken to her better these days and last
night laid in her bed. So all is well
here. Now they are all flying around
here, its a hoot! Later
Zoey is quite at
home now. She & KiKi are great pals &
spend a lot of time playing together.

jump on your lap to get attention.

out with the dogs. I'm sending a couple
pictures that I took this weekend.

excited as it was the first day show of
China Cat Fanciers' 6th Cat show in
Beijing.The show hall was filled up with
cat fanciers and our beautiful exhibits.
Compared with our
previous shows, our 6th one was
definitely not a big one. But, there are
new elements which were incorporated
with this show.
It was the third
time for having the same show venue,
Golden Resources Shopping mall, which
has over 68,000 square meters and is
located in the downtown area. The
location is one of the landmarks in
Beijing, and also considered as the
biggest shopping mall in Asia.
The show was a
2-ring show with our 2 judges, Pam
Delabar and Kathy Black, and our special
guest, Bob Zenda also took part in the
Pam was one of the
2 judges of our first show which was
held in early March 2004. Time flies, no
one would expect a new club could be
able to hold its 6th show within 2 years
of time. I think God has been taking
good care of the club and let it grow so
well with his full effort. Pam would be
the best witness for the development
history of pedigreed cats in mainland
China. Both Pam and Kathy spent plenty
of time in judging each exhibits
meticulously, the audience were so
involved with their explanation and
presentation of each breeds and breed
standards accordingly. Honestly, most of
the cat fanciers are still not very
familiar with the CFA system, hence we
requested the judges to spend extra
effort for achieving this. Both judges'
presentation were marvelous, please
accept our salute again!
The club has
designed attractive poster and show
brochure for the event. Thank you to the
photographer, Larry Johnson, for
granting us the copyright for using the
image of GC NW Heida I Luv Rock'N Roll
of Do'ver. Elvis is now residing in
Beijing and owned by one of our club
members, and carries his mission in
promoting the pedigreed cats in the
country. He was benched at the show as
"For Exhibition only" and demonstrating
his ideal beauty of the breed to the cat
In order to
broaden the awareness of the pubic, the
club had interviews with mass media. One
of the Beijing TV stations had
interviews with Pam and the club's
president in the afternoon and the
documentary was on air at 9:30 pm on the
same day. 2 television monitors were
transmitting the show process during the
whole event, and cattery commercials and
event reviews were being run during show
breaks. Maybe, breeders would be
familiar with cattery ads from show
catalogues or yearbooks or almanac, but
they would wonder what "cattery
commercial" is? In fact, the club's
members are so creative and they helped
breeders to design the cattery
introduction with footages, as well as
pictures and different sound effects.
Each commercial was around 1 min in
duration, and 20 spots were for the rate
of around US$50. The club was not trying
to make showing cat or breeding cat to
be commercial, it is merely one of their
tactics for promoting our animals via
some video aids, so "why not"?
exhibitors from different provinces in
mainland China, as well as Hong Kong,
Malaysia and Philippines. In fact, the
show was an International one.
The highest score
kitten in show was a black and white
male Persian, namely D' Eden Lover's
Prince William, and the highest score
cat in championship was GC Kisan's
Kilohana Keloa of Green Tea, a Flame
point male Himalayan.
Though there was
only one entry in the premiership,
everyone was so admired the beauty of
this chestnut spotted tabby OSH, namely
Chperson Brown Charlie.
The title of the
highest score HHP in show belonged to
the 9.3 years old neutered male, namely
Yuyan, a red mackerel tabby and white
The show was a
very enjoyable one, see below links for

Advisor of China Cat Fanciers
The girls are
absolutely gorgeous! Katy, of course, is
totally outgoing and affectionate.
Chessie is more reserved – so far. Both
are so sweet and playful with wonderful
velvety fur and beautiful faces and
We enjoyed meeting
Kathy and Kristen and really appreciate
them bringing the girls to Alexandria.
They are so nice, and all the cats they
brought to the show were just beautiful.
We had a very
quiet, calm trip home. The girls were
very relaxed and slept most of the way.
Neither was interested in the food,
water, or litter box we had available
during the 200 mile drive. When we
arrived home, Katy was out of her
carrier immediately. Chessie was out of
hers within about a minute. They
explored the entire perimeter of the
kitchen/ breakfast room, and within just
a short time were playing. I will send
pictures soon. Katy was really panting
after playing with the great feather you
sent in the kitten care package. Is this
normal for cats with shorter noses?
They love all the toys. The cat tree we
got a few days ago is a big hit. It is
so entertaining to watch them together.
My husband actually said I was right to
get two cats. I love being right –
especially since I get to have both of
these precious girls.
I already have the
appointment with my vet set for Monday,
so they will continue to receive
excellent care. I will be in touch soon.
Thank you for these wonderful additions
to our family.
Here's a few new pictures of Max. He
likes going into boxes and somehow is
able to crawl in and then turn around
and come out. He is so flexible. And of
course, he enjoys napping on the cat
helps me in the basement when I work on
my pottery and it takes longer to get
things done (not a bad thing) because we
have to stop and butt heads and I have
to pat him and tell him how pretty he
is....and he loves it.
Have a great day,
handsome, but vain too.
He is doing great! Attached are a couple
of pictures of him.
He has "run" of
the house now, but stays with us in
whichever room we're in. He sleeps
through the night with us and still uses
me as he kneads himself to sleep. I love
The girl eats a lot! She's the best
cuddle buddy I've had in a long time. I
had no idea this breed of cat is so
loving, I've been doing some reading up
on them. At some point, I will probably
want to adopt another one. She's more
than I could have ever imagined or
expected. Thanks for giving me the
opportunity to have her. I hope your new
year is off to a good start. I'll send
more updates as time goes one!
He's great. He's extremely playful and
contrary to the breed's reputation, is
very vocal. He sleeps on the bed next to
me most nights and races with me every
day after work down the hall way of my
apartment building. All my friends love
him. He's getting really big already.
I'll send some of the 15 billion
pictures I've taken of him when I get a
chance. How big is normal at his age? I
think he's over 4 lbs already. I took
him to the vet the day after he arrived
and the whole office was gushing over
him. His eyes are alrady a coppery
color. How long before their eye color
is fully developed?
As far as grooming is concerned, what do
I need to do? I've clipped his claws
once but I'm so worried about clipping
them too high that I just clip the tips.
Should I comb or brush him? Do I need to
ever bathe him in any way?
He accidentally jumped into a clean
toilet one morning when I think he
thought the cover was down. It was
pretty funny. I fished him out and dried
him off but he wasn't very happy!
Anyway! I'm very happy with him and
whatever it is that you did to socialize
him worked great. He falls asleep on my
lap or stomach-chest all the time. He
has no fear of people at all and comes
running anytime I call hi or come home.
Terk is doing very well - her eye is all
cleared up, she's growing like a weed,
she's almost due for her second feline
leukemia booster, and our other two cats
have welcomed her to the family! We
couldn't be happier! As a matter of
fact, she's helping us type this email
right now. She's a real techie! We're
giving all three cats toothpaste - they
love the flavor, and it's supposed to be
good for their teeth. Of course, we'll
still get everyone's teeth cleaned
yearly. She loves tunnels and hiding
places, so we've built little places
with pillows and large sheets of paper
where she can hide and stalk us.

Sorry we never got this off to before
Christmas - we've been quite busy as we are
in the yard in Seattle (been here since
September) and we are nearly finished,
should be leaving for warmer waters in Feb.
We are heading to the Med for the summer.
Bella is as lovely as ever though she has
been in a wee bit of a sticky situation
She excaped outside and went for a walk on
her own - into freshly laid epoxy on our
transom. She walked all through it! We tried
to get as much as we could off her paws
while it was still wet - we didn't do very
well - the next day it was hard as concrete
and the poor thing - well you can imagine!!
Anyway we had an appointment at the Vets to
get all her jabs up to date as we are
heading to the Med and they require that the
Rabies shot is less than 6 months old when
she arrvies. Anyway she also needed a new
frequency micro chip. They tried to get the
chip in and it didn't work and she screamed
poor thing - you know the size of the needle
- I felt quite faint after the event and she
poor thing would have been very upset.
Anyway we booked her in for the next day to
do it again while she was sedated.
They gave her the chip and tried to cut out
the epoxy glue - they did a great job, she's
able to walk quite nicely now though she is
down in the dumps.
So that's her big news of late.
Hope you had a great Xmas and we wish you
and your family a wonderful New Year

Hi Suzanne...just couldn't resist
sending you this photo of Ella taken
just yesterday, January 7th.
She has grown so much and is just
beautiful...she has rounded out
nicely just like she's supposed to
and her fur is thick and full and
sooooooo soft. This photo also
shows her gorgeous eye color!
In response to your earlier question
of whether or not our tree survived
the holidays with two kittens in the
house, we chose to not put one up
this year for obvious reasons.
We decorated a very small live tree
out in the garage on Christmas Eve
and brought it up just for Christmas
Day and put it way up high on the
entertainment center so the kittens
would not play with it. That
worked well for this holiday and
they were safe and we were stress
free regarding tree issues!
Happy New Year to you and yours...
Ella is a love;
she's grown to 9 pounds and is round
as a little teddy bear.
Everyone who sees her falls in love
with her, and they especially like
to touch that thick fur! I had
her in to see the vet last week and
the issue with her tooth has
resolved itself! Dr. Izo said
she didn't see any need to do a
thing with it.
photos of Ella and her brother (aka
Snowshoe-mix rescue kitty.
were taken just last week.
I hope all is
well down your way...I still
frequent your website to look at
all the new kittens and read the
testimonies of their parents...they
are all so beautiful; I wish I could
have one of every color!
Thanks again for
thinking of Lisa...you've touched my
Hi Dr. Henne,
Hard to believe that the La Rue
brothers will have been with me for
a year in January. They have been a
joy. Jack and Joseph want to wish
their Father Burton and Mothers both
Autumn and Flame a Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year. Hope to send
some pictures soon. Thank-you for
breeding such wonderful cats. Have a
wonderful and safe holiday. Barbara
