Hi this is Debbie who bought "Gracie" yesterday....she's doing great! Slept thru her first night all night....the hissing is minimal with the dog, almost none now with the big cat who is great with her.... Everyone loves her and my boyfriend who was not a cat lover thinks she's great and as I figured, she has really has taken to Shawn!
We named the baby Himalayan "Kayla" (for no particular reason). Within 48 hours of her arrival, she learned her name, picked a favorite toy, a favorite chair, and wrapped us all completely around her paw. She is eating kitten food, and she scarfs it down like a miniature horse. We've taken tons of pictures (and some video of her on her new cat furniture). Thank you so much for letting us have her. She is a joy.
Hello Marie, Little "Princess" has really turned into a live wire. We are enjoying her immensely. She is very affectionate. I am taking her Tuesday for her shot. Hope all is well with you and keep in touch.
Mocha has been with us just about two months now and she has grown into being a member of the family. I took her to the vet for her second set of shots and he said that Mocha couldn't be healthier. Everyone we meet can't believe what a "precious kitten" we have. Mocha loves to play rough and then she cuddles up for hours purring. Thank you for raising such a beautiful kitten for us.

Sorry I haven't written to you sooner. We are enjoying our kitten soooo much and he is just the cutest little guy! We named him Khu-Fu. He is just so smart and so observant and we've never had any problems with him. He has always gone in his potty and is real quiet at night. But come morning, he's ready to go! I just wanted you to know how happy we are with Khu-Fu and to thank you for giving him a wonderful beginning. We can tell he was loved!
Salem is doing wonderfully! He has made friends with Sandy and Sandy is his big brother. They sleep together in the cat tiger bed and Salem gives Sandy a run for his money. He's so funny! We have all fallen in love with him.
We love our new kitty, Aliyah! she is so adorable and full of endless energy. She stands her ground with our other cat Jasmin, and is a real talker and lap kitty!!
Thank God for folks like you who want to continue the Traditionals!! As a veterinary tech, it breaks my heart to see these poor creatures who come in to the hospital all the time with allergies, asthma, anesthetic reactions, etc, and I just want to strangle the people who allow the cruelty to continue.
I love Zeph to pieces, and favor the looks and vitality of the more-muscular, beefy Appleheads much more-- they are the Siamese cats of my childhood, the first cat breed that I learned of when I was small.
Thank you again for keeping Tradition alive and well...
Thank you so much! You made our mom so very happy. After you left tonight the kitten sat in mom's lap for a long time, explored a little, and sat right next to Mom at dinner then fell asleep. Her little motor was purring as mom rubber her. What an adorable baby kitty! It was truly love at first sight.
Thank you again,
Gary and Dorothy
The little kitty is doing fine. This morning the kitten was all over me, once I opened the bathroom door, the kitten started rubbing up against me and talking at the top of its lungs, it then followed me wherever I went in the house it would not leave me alone, whenever I went into another area of the house the kitten would run to me at full speed, talking at the same time. I thought at first it would be scared, but for some reason the kitten took to my wife. The kitten to come out from behind the sink and went right up to my wife and sat in her lap.

You certainly didn't exaggerate about the sweetness of your kittens, I couldn't be more pleased. He jumps and bounds around like a little wind-up toy such that I find myself laughing out loud at his antics. I must say that the bonding has begun. When I leave his sight he has a little kitty fit. I can't express the pleasure I receive when he crawls into my lap or up onto my chest when I'm seated in my recliner and he stretches out and takes a nap. He has a really nice little motor (purr) and it starts up at the drop of a hat. He is eating, drinking, and using the litter box fine. I must thank you for returning the joy of a cat to my home. He is currently at my feet untying my shoe laces as I type. Again, thank you Marie for a great little kitten.
This morning Jasmine got a little surprise. She jumped into the shower with me. She was not at all pleased with the experience. Of course, after she was appropriately wet, I helped her out. That Jasmine, what a little rascal she is! Obiwan gets more stunning everyday. By the way, I have noticed that they don't shed which is highly unusual. Is this just a kitten thing? I used to have to brush down my clothes and furniture everyday with Mittens. With these two, I see no shedding. Is that going to change?
"My traditional Himalayans do not shed as much as the others and very little when they are kittens. Next year there may be a little, but not much."
Sam wanted to send you his latest photo and to say hello to his parents and siblings. He said to tell you he is doing well and growing like a weed. He likes Tennessee OK but the climate took a little getting used to. He has literally taken over the house as his personal domain and any one who comes to visit falls in love with him. He will send more photos as he grows bigger.
I thought I would let you know how things were going with the kitten. In a word, she is wonderful, just what I hoped for. She is affectionate and playful, loves to cuddle and sleep in my lap. When I enter the house, she comes running and often will respond to my voice when I call her. She's never missed the litter box (whew!), even as we've expanded her territory from one room to the whole house.
She and the dog are still getting used to each other. She hisses at the dog (a 65 pound retriever who was raised with cats) after which I swear the dog looks quizzically at me and my husband as if to say, "is this cat for real?" My children and grandchildren enjoy her too, right along with the dog. Monday was my oldest daughter's birthday and we had a family party at my house. After opening gifts, my daughter dangled one of the curly bows in front of the kitten who entertained us all by 'attacking' the bow and her tail for about 15 minutes, nonstop.
I should've written sooner--I've thought of it many times. I am attaching a picture of Seamus who is the little baby we got from you a year ago (for some reason, he wanted to be in the bucket so I took the picture of him in there!). We love him to death! HE is the best boy--he loves to ride in the truck, goes camping in our RV with us and loves the dog and birds. He is so sweet. I am so glad I found you.
Anyway, I hope all is well there. I have recommended you to many people.
Zoie and I are at the computer now sending you mail. She is a lovely kitten and really sweet just as you said. She has been talking to me all morning. Zoie has been brushed, is eating, and has used the litter box.
She is such a friendly kitten from the first we saw each other last night at the Airport. You must give your kittens much love and attention.
Love and kisses from Mona and Zoie.
I'm writing to tell you how much Matt and I love having Bisley. He became a part of the family instantly; he even sleeps with Clancy, our dog, occasionally. Truly, he's everything we wanted in a cat, and oh so very beautiful. We've taken some pictures, and promise to send them to you once they are developed.
We hope you are doing well.
Meow from Bisley!
Tanya and Matt
Wanted to drop you a line and give you a little info about my wonderful 6 month old flame point Himalayan kitten, who I happened to name Dante'. When I named him, I wanted a name associated with his "flame point" nature. And naturally, Dante's Inferno came to mind and boy oh boy does he fit the bill! He is so wonderfully playful and makes me laugh constantly! We play hide and seek on a very regular basis. On the other hand, he is extremely sweet and loves to be held. That is the exact type of kitty I wanted!
