Okemos is growing way too fast!!!! He has been such a joy and a little love!  Mamas boy who plays hard and crashes just as quick. Loves his belly rubs, snuggling and showing off his pseudo toy kills.  Goes in this wkend for last round of distemper and rabies shots.  Last weight 3.5 pounds!!! Ps.  Picture taking tonight.

Gained one pound in two wks and I was the best cat ever to get my distemper shot.  No reaction whatsoever and everyone loves me and wants to hold me.  Oh and they think my name is pretty cool too!  In four wks I go back for my final series of shots.  Having fun with tissue paper and Mr Revenge Rover.

Hi Kerry and Thyra

This is Gina, wife of Lee, who got a male kitten from you guys last week. We
have decided to name the kitten Nathan. Thank you so much for raising such a
sweet, lovable and pretty kitten. Both of my resident cat and dog have taken
a liking to him dearly in a matter of week. I hope you will enjoy the photos
of Nathan with my pets together since they stick together always like bees
hovering around honey. Please don’t mind me attaching so many photos to one
email since it’s hard to rule out which ones I don’t want to include! Let me
know if you have received my email since you’ve got more than one email
address. =]

OP-Okemos-Oct-22-2017-American-Shorthair-silver-tabby-kitten-sleeping-on round-scratching-padUpdate: Hi Thyra!  I hope you are feeling better!  I wanted to let you know that I have not forgotten about you.  I will send you an email with an update hopefully tomorrow night.
All is good here and the boys are slowly learning to accept each other.  Pictures to come soon too (probably too many).
The little guys name is (first name) Okemos (s is silent) & (middle name) Tocho.  I will explain the meanings shortly.
I didn’t want you to worry about how things are going.
Lots of love happening in this home and couldn’t be happier.   Thank you again! I so grateful and appreciative!

We have a kitten. 😺he is very active and in good shape after the flight.

We made it home with Tommy,  what a sweetie. Slept in my wife’s arms and in her lap a lot of the way home.
Settled right in to his room and used the litter box right away.
He is now playing with a little mouse. Thank You so much!

OP-Dakota-NY-American-shorthair-silver-tabby-catHello Kerry,
It has been more than a couple of years since we received Dakota at LGA here in NY. I’ve always meant to write to update you on how Dakota is doing, but it’s been hard to get a decent picture. Cats are hard to photograph well! I finally got one that I think is acceptable.  We cannot say enough about Dakota! She is very friendly and she likes to meow when she has something for us to do.  She has grown into a beautiful well-mannered adult cat. What a blessing she has been to our home. Rest assured she is doing well, and is living a well-loved and happy life.  Thank you!  Best regards,  K.M.

Brent & Thyra, I sure love my little kitten. We call her Mazie and my husband has taught her to fetch a certain toy that she likes and she jumps out of his lap and then brings it back to his lap, but it takes her a few minutes to set it on his lap for him to throw it again.  A real sweetheart.  Thank you so much


Kerry, I wanted to give an update of our cat, Sebastian, who will be 8 years old on March 15th of 2016, though one would never know he was that old as he still acts and plays like a kitten. It seems a bit surreal to think that Sebastian has been with us for almost 8 years. In those 8 years I have moved 7 times to 3 cities and 2 states and of course Sebastian has come with on every single move. As you can see in the pictures we didn’t have another cat to keep Sebastian company so he attached himself to the dog, and now Sebastian baths the dog daily. Thank you for the giving us our boy and I apologize that it has taken me so long to write with an update but Sebastian is healthy, young at heart and king of the castle.
