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.

Hi Kerry,
I’m also attaching a few recent photos of Ohanzee (aka Shadow). He is doing very well (funny as all get out too) and has his first annual physical in November. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I look forward to hearing back from you!

Hi Kerry,
It’s been a little over three years since you sent Orion to me and I wanted to give you an update. He’s gotten so big and his pattern is amazing just like his dad Shadow. He’s been my best buddy since he arrived when I lived in Pennsylvania. Since then he traveled with me to grad school in Indiana then down to Texas where we finally settled. He’s very much a lap cat and follows me around the house. If he’s not sleeping, he’s purring on someone’s lap. Thanks for sending me such a great friend!

Here is a picture of Sophie, she was born 4-15-14 and we picked her up in Dickinson on June 26. She is doing great. We get a great many compliments on how beautiful she is. Of course we think she is very pretty. Even people that say they are not cat people tell us she is very pretty. Just wanted to let you know she is doing well and we love her very much.

A week later, we ‘re just delighted with Rumple. Here she is holding down an unfinished bowl– Lisa’s a potter. She’s thriving and had grown an inch in9 days!  I’d still like to get a brother kitty to go along and need to put in a deposit in case there is any chance.  Hope you and Marian are well.

Updated pictures at 8 mo.&7.5mo . Whisper @ 8# and Luna @ 7#. Whisper wants his belly rubbed every evening and cries at 9:00pm until i put him in my lap upside down and put him to sleep. Luna & Whisper both have daddy Shadow’s green eyes. Both are very healthy and very active, sometimes crazy active. That’s normal. We are again so thankful to you both and your family for bringing such lovely additions into our lives. With the help of Fancy, Yakity Yak, Shadow and God of course.
Hope & love

I thought I would let you know that Leo is doing great 🙂
He’s a very affectionate little guy (kisses and purrs a lot, & licks noses and eyes!), and is very active!
He’s becoming very handsome, too 🙂
Will email you more photos later!
Thanks for our baby!
