Hope all is well!
Just wanted to give you an update on our girl Eleven (formerly Kendra). She just had a birthday and she is doing great. In great health, and happy as can be. She has an absolutely wonderful temperament; such a great addition to our family.
Thank you so much for all you do!
-Crystal & Family
The owner of Sleek Cats Cattery is a very reputable breeder who has devoted her entire life to this amazing breed. Although I do not have one of her cats, I was introduced to her by a mutual friend, who currently has 3 of her cats; all of whom are perfectly healthy.
When I got into breeding a different breed of exotic cats, I quickly discovered the lack of pertinent information available to breeders, or those of whom are interested in entering the field. First and foremost, let it be known that any ethical breeder makes little to no money off of their cats. The operational costs are astronomical - far more than most people can even comprehend.
Donna immediately stepped in and offered my best friend and I hours of her time, free of charge. Not only did she send us emails filled with pages of useful information, links and book recommendations, but she spent countless hours on the phone with us, educating us about breeding as well as sphynx cats and the hairless genes.
When our second litter of kittens arrived, we had a baby experience toxicity since it was behind the still born kitten in the litter. Our vet could offer no immediate advice, yet Donna told us exactly what we should do to help save the baby - and it worked. The vet was amazed by not only her knowledge and expertise, but also her quick thinking, proactive suggestions.
Throughout the last 2 years we have seen several different vets, and not one gave us 1/8 the advice and suggestions that Donna has.
For all of the naysayers, I think it would be best to speak to this woman first hand. She is caring, loving and devotes every ounce of her life and soul to these cats. Breeding is one of the most emotionally draining, time consuming, heart-wrenching things that I have ever done. This is definitely not an occupation for the weak of heart! I can't begin to express the blood, sweat and tears that go in to breeding. Without Donna's knowledgable advice, I have no doubt in my mind that we would have lost our runt. She went above and beyond, making herself available to us around the clock.
Breeding is not for the faint at heart. The months of sleepless nights, getting up every 90 minutes to put eye drops in the kittens eyes; bottle feeding, burping, bathing, nails, etc.
Donna DiGiovanni is truly an amazing individual who loves each and every one of her animals. She doesn't skimp out on anything or try to cut corners. She's brutally honest and cares about all of her "babies" well beings, even long after they go to their forever homes.
Hi Donna, my name is Stephanie I adopted a beautiful little kitten from you 3.5 years ago. His name was Elf but I renamed him Alf and call him Alfie! I just wanted to let you know he is a wonderful creature and more than I could have ever asked for in a pet. He is my soulmate and I truly believe he was put on this earth to be in my life. He follows me around constantly and sleeps on me every night. He's my best friend. Thought I might share some recent photos with you :)
just wanted to tell you happy thanksgiving to your and your family.. as i get ready for our dinner, i reflect back on all ... i have lost my entire family except for my son... i have so many wonderful memories of my loved ones to be so thankful for..i also thank God for you, you are truely a special person that not only has changed my life in so many wonderful ways, but so many others also.. there is a special place in heaven for you beautiful lady.. enjoy your holiday
Hope you are doing well! Im just following up on how is the kitten doing! I'm so excited that in two weeks and a half a will be with her. I have everything ready for her. Thank you for this great opportunity Donna I'm grateful to have found you, you take care of those baby's with love and dedication.
I woke up this morning with Max cuddled in the crease of my neck, under my chin. He has changed my life for the better with his quirky little ways. He makes Ben and I laugh every day with the crazy things he does. He is so healthy and happy and I want to thank you one more time for giving me the best gift ever. He means the entire world to me and I am so lucky that he is mine. You are an amazing breeder and so supportive. Thank you, Donna. You really are so special to me.
whatever it costs to keep them happy... I don't care. People think I am CRAZY... we don't run ac in our entire house (only our bedroom and Cody's) because I don't want them to come down with upper respitory infections... I get up several times during the night to cover them... I run 4 beds with 4 heating blankets ALL season... my electric bill is crazy but you know what.. I don't care how high it is... as long as these babies are happy and healthy that is all I care about
Brenda from R.I has 4 Peterbald cats from us
WOW! he is stunning and absolutely gorgeous the most beautiful baby ever.. He has grown to be so damn handsome, its unbelievable how beautiful all of your babies, queens and studs are. You have the cattery with the most well rounded color, genetics, grace and beauty. I've never seen a cattery with as much success as yours it shows that you not only know what your doing in the care of your animals but the genetics and science of it all for trying to improve the breed as a whole with as much success as possible. if we didn't have breeders like you this wonderful unique breed would not exist and be successful thank you Donna for what you do and how great you do it.
Jessica from Louisiana
I want to thank you from the very bottom of my heart for Dmitry. He has become an amazing companion and source of much needed constant, unconditional comfort and love in the wake of a back injury that has taken a toll on me.
I have never experienced a creature like him. He's not quite a cat nor a dog, nor a monkey, nor a human but an amazing combination of all of these! Everyone who meets him is astounded at his friendly and outgoing personality.
(Cheryl now has adopted two of our babies. And D'metry now has a baby brother)
Yoda is, without question, the greatest cat We've ever owned or even encountered!!
Getting along amazing with his brother Simon. Perfect litter box and eating. Healthy and growing.
I'll send some pictures. He is darkening up and still eating like a porker!!
-Rob (Rob now has two of our babies)
Thanks so much for caring and really giving us a fair chance at comparing them. We have decided to change to the light colored one. I want to thank you for being a great, trustworthy, helpful and caring person and also thinking far ahead and all of the outcomes it really shows your experience and love for breeding. We couldn't have asked for a better person to bless our lives. I knew I searched long and hard for a reason and it all lead to you and your cattery. I am forever great full Donna truly. Jessica and Kirk from Louisiana
Wanted to send you a quick update, Margo is a beauty, she is an amazing cat and we love her to death, her personality is amazing.
I'm really grateful to you for her : )
Yoda is being super good and giving out loving to everybody.
His big brother Simon is sniffing around, but, no hisses from anyone.
Eating, drinking, peeing, snuggling,playing. Everything is perfect!!
Absolutely the best kitten I've ever seen.
I'll keep you in the loop with any questions or concerns.
I know it must be tough letting them go. But, don't worry about this one. He is going to livea blessed life.
Just wanted to check in with you and let you know so far everything with Callie is going great! we absolutely adore her! I am so amazed by how much easier a kitten is then a dog. She has never gone to the bathroom anywhere other than her litter box, and she always uses her scratching poll and has never scratched furniture. Still sleeps through the night too! Her cold has gone away after we gave her what you told us to and she has been fine ever since. She is very very loving and so sweet :) She does however have an obsession with bacon haha Everytime it is cooked she goes crazy and tries her hardest to get ahold of some( don't worry I would never give her any). Is that normal? I've never really been around a lot of cats so i've never really seen them be interested in human food. Anyways, just wanted to thank you and tell you how much we love her! If I wasn't pregnant i would be defiantly looking into getting another kitten :)
Hope all is well with you!
Samantha , and CJ
The girls are great, I've waited on spaying because isis (fawn) is so small but I'm beginning to think she's just a tiny kitty. She's such a little peanut and a very big princess. They both have such strong personalities. Luna is such a love and follows me around like a dog and always wants to cuddle and be pat. Isis is very proud and is the queen of the house. Their interactions are priceless and I can't thank you enough for letting these little ladies into my life. I will give this vet a call as we're just very skeptical of using anyone you wouldn't suggest. I'd attach some pictures but I am on my moms computer right now. Don't worry I'll have some in soon and don't worry they'll be sure to get big hugs and kisses! thanks so much

Love you! you have changed my entire life! (has 2 of our babies)
Hi Donna, We celebrated MM?s first birthday. We gave her shredded chicken with some plain yogurt as frosting. She loved it. A special treat. She had a great time. I have a few photos for you. She is all grown up now. She is a full 8 pounds and full of energy. She still acts like a kitten. She runs all over the house, loves to play fetch, and loves to attack things that move under covers. She is so sweet and loving. Hope all is well with you. You have amazing kitties!!!Tracy in California
Bandit is doing awesome shes such a sweetheart and a trouble maker but its all innocent fun. Shes a wicked cuddle bug and looooooves to play in water anytime she hears the faucet go she runs to it and just stares at the water going down the drain, its the funniest thing. She also follows me EVERYWHERE i go and has to always sleep next to me. If i walk into another room she will cry because she doesnt see me, its the only time i hear her make any noise, shes very quite.
We are living back in Western Mass but when we where living out in the Boston area there where other pets in the house and i feel that shes a bit lonely now so i was considering swinging by the shelter but im worried about getting another pet and having them not get along, i just feel bad leaving her when i go to work even though my family is beyond in love with her and come play with her when im at work. Shes got quite the following.
I cant thank you enough for bringing her into my life and all your help and advice prior to getting her. Best thing to ever happen in my life.
ill have to get a pic of her with her eyes fully open as well for you, her eyes are amazing!
did that other kitten end up looking like bandit? i know you where interested to see how she was going to develop.
sorry for the long email but im just beyond super happy to have her in my life and like i said i cant thank you enough! : (has 2 of our babies)
i know u probably hear this all the time.. but this is the truth.. this baby is soo special.. he has brought so much joy into my life in such a short period of time and captivated all that have come in contact with him. love him so damn much, can't wait to see what he does next
"as i have sd before, i have never had a cat with this much personality, intellegence, and the characteristics of a little human.. he is loved so much and i truely feel blesssed that u intrusted one of your babies to me.. thank u"

I own two lovely Bengals both of which are approximately 12 years old.......if they ever leave this world I would want one of your cats.....

Hi Donna just wanted to let you know how we are doing. Things here couldn't be better. My husband has decided to name the kitty fluffy. And the name seems to fit her well. She is settling in very well. She is exploring and getting comfortable. She is eating, drinking and going potty just like a good kitty should. She loves to snuggle. Life just couldn't be better!! I want to thank you so very much for everything you have done for us. Thank you again!!! Michelle (Groton, Conn.)
Michelle, Jason, Wyatt and baby Sophie
Thank you Donna,
This has been quite an experience. You are an amazing person...I am so blessed to have gone through this and now the time is coming for these baby girls to come live with me and they will be in my life for the next 15-20 years. Its these moments right now that I will look back on and remember how excited and nervous I was and remember seeing them for the first time. I'm taking time to be in the moment because I know these are moments I will look back on. Thank you for being such a wonderful person and raising such amazing kitties.

Sleekats Ethel and Sleekats Lucy at 11 wks. of age
Hello from Philly-
The boys are doing just fine! They saw their first snow while they sat very cheerfully on the heater.
The battle is on in the house as to who gets to sleep with the boys! I won; I purchased a new electric blanket. They love me best now! I didn?t realize it but the blankets comes with automatic shut-off after 10 hours so I just leave it on when I leave for work in the morning.
The boys are so important that I finally got my husband to put heat in their bathroom! You would have laughed-it was never a concern until they took over the house and there wasn?t a reason to keep them in the extra bedroom with the litter box. Phil realized it and presto the installer arrived and the boys have the warmest bathroom in the house. It only took 12 years.
I?m hoping to get you photos soon. They have matured! You?ll love the connection they have with the dogs. Since I travel on the weekends it?s very hard for the pets but hey seemed to figure it out. I have caught Dobby and Avrum sleeping tucked in with the older of the two labs. The dog will entertain Dobby by allowing him to swing on her tail. We are very luckily.
I can?t thank you enough for these special boys!
Take care and congratulations on the new babies!
Devra (has 2 of our babies)
Sometimes I wish I could be my cat for one rainy day! I love my bald little man.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that Maru is doing fantastic...she has settled in nicely to her surroundings and has now taken to hiding in rooms and when you walk down the dark hallway, she jumps out and pounces on your feet and scares the crap out of us!! We just love her to pieces and she is such a joy to have in the house. She is our little princess and she is spoiled rotten. She has even taught Ed how to FETCH!!! I told him it should be the other way around!! Ed will roll her favorite ball across the floor for her to chase but if it goes on the tile floor in the kitchen, she does not want to go get it because the floor is cold so she sits right at the edge of the hardwoods that meet the kitchen tile, looks at him with her little girl eyes and MEOW's pitifully and he jumps right up and gets the ball for her. I swear I saw her smile the other day with a look that said "I have him right where I want him"!!
She has all 3 of us wrapped around her little paw.. she sees Cody as her playmate as he always plays with her, I am her cuddler and snuggler buddy when she is tired or wants love and Ed is her food source/fetch buddy! When Ed makes her food, he heats the chicken up a little in the microwave because he does not think she should have to eat it cold from the fridge (as you can tell she is not too spoiled) so now every time she hears the microwave ding... she thinks its time to eat!!! She hears that ding and I don't care what room she is in... she comes barreling into the kitchen and sits in front of the counter that the microwave sits on and waits! It is too funny!!
I have attached a picture we took of her last night and I think it is especially cute of her. She is beautiful, happy and healthy and we could not ask for more!!
Will be sending many more pics over time so that you can see her grow!
Brenda (has 4 of our babies)
Thought I would send along an updated photo. These photos make her look so big but she is still so little. She is doing AWESOME! I love her so much. I thought you would get a kick out of hearing about our morning routine; as she is in a little ball near my neck she wakes up purring and then she nibbles on my ear ever so gently and touches my face with her paw. She is just the sweetest little girl. I ended up getting another litter box to transition her to the bathroom and she seems to be using both so that is good. She loves to play and then take a little nap when she is done. Everything is going so well.
Hope all is well with you!
Lynn (has 2 of our babies)
Thanks so much for the update, you don't know how much I love to hear how he is doing (I will read this email many, many times!) I'm so glad he is doing so well, he is perfect!!! Good luck on transitioning the babies to drinking out of the bowl, and good luck with cattery visits this weekend. I will talk to you soon, can't believe he's almost 7 weeks!!!!!!
HI Donna! how are things? I hope things are well! I just wanted to say hi! and send you some pictures of my Baby! He is doing awesome! I love him so much I couldn't picture my life without him! He is always talking to me and sitting on my shoulder! he is super spoiled = )
Becky & Nakita
Our little girl is at the vet getting spay as we speak! She is due to be picked up this evening. I will send you the proof this weekend. I know we're doing a good thing for her but both Dan and I were so sad this morning. It's like watching our girl go off to school for the first time. We're such proud parents and she really is a bundle of joy who brings us much happiness. I only hope she is as happy with us as we are with her. One day I hope to bring some more lil kitties into our happy home. Here's to a great weekend! Hope all is well with you and yours.
We hope the best for all of us in this beginning of the year!
Here everyone is very well....the girls continue to grow up and to be the best kitten ever seen in all the world!!! I am completely in love with them...:0))
Michael is working very hard with a so nice person in Salem who works for him to sale his cd in US....I will send you a link if you want to hear some of his music
and now some pictures of the kitty.....
Many LOVE from all of us!!! Blessings from the Heart!!

Hi Donna, just wanted to let you know Charles Darwin is a happy camping purring machine of mischief. :> He's doing really well, gets along with the dog, kids, crazy house. He's eating, litterbox, playing, sleeping, etc. all with great enthusiasm.
Just wanted to give you a little update.
The girls are very fine...just some pictures for you to see how sweet they are....
Hope the best for you there!!
Warm Blessings from Geneva!!
Fanny and co (has 2 of our babies)
Well, Miles aka Waldo, is doing absolutely great! He is the best cat that I have EVER had! He meows a lot...and closes his eyes in contentment when you touch him. I even managed to take care of quite a few blackheads while he was sleeping.
He searches me out to sleep on me...and yes, he does like the heating pad! He is very very happy and if he could talk, he would thank you for sending him to live with me.
I cannot tell you how wonderful he is. He never growls or shows any aggression.
But, I wanted to tell you that each day just brings us closer to him and him to us and he is a love to have around the house!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Deb in New hampshire (has 2 of our babies)
Hi Donna! How are you? How are all of you babies? Mine are doing great! I still have them on the same diet of chicken breast and health extensions.I contacted my friend about this cat found in Brooklyn and she said she would ask her cat's breeders if they knew anything of it. I also forwarded the e-mail to see if the pics would be of any help, but no luck so far. He is actually very beautiful and I feel sorry for him! Oliver and Morris are doing good. They're really big now. I'm so happy to see their faces when I come home. Oliver (the hairless one) wears a sweater every day and apparently he doesn't like it. He keeps taking it off, putting it in the toilet, and shitting on it! Can you believe it?! He has some nerve & I think Morris is the one helping him get out of it! Morris doesn't wear a sweater because he's pretty furry, but it's a very nice feel and it doesn't bother me at all. He actually keeps Oliver warm by hugging him. I can see the difference in the personalities of the hair coated vs. the bald kitties. I'm trying to keep Oliver off the kitchen counters, which he could care less about - even when I spray him it has no effect since he seems to love water anyway. He just opens his mouth up when he sees the spray bottle. Usually that's the first warning and if I catch him again I give him a time out in the bathroom. Do you know that he anticipates that he will get a time out and races to the bathroom and slams the door! They crack me up every time. Morris doesn't dare jump on counters in front of me but that is the difference between the hair coated and the bald kitties. I guess they hate the feeling of water on their fur much more. I know as soon as I go to sleep they are doing full inspection inside the kitchen cabinets and all over the counters. They even managed to open a box of angelhair pasta and they had a PASTA PARTY. Or one time I woke up and I saw Oliver sitting in front of the door with a toothpick hanging out the corner of his mouth like a cowboy. Toothpicks were EVERYWHERE! So now I know to keep all these things out of reach. They really love each other. I can't imagine one without the other. My husband was complaining the other day that he wakes up and the cats wake up at the same time and run to the toilet before him and make him wait & that Morris HAS TO go first, then Oliver, then him! I will e-mail you some pictures of them when I get home and have access to my personal computer. xoxoxoxox Take care! :)

Hi Donna and happy holidays!
Impy is registered as "Sleekats the Immortal" .
He's doing great and just had his 3rd birthday a couple months ago. We recently moved down to North Carolina where my fiance is stationed with the air force and he definitely likes the warmer weather! Back in April he got into some ribbon and had to have 4ft surgically removed but made a full recovery. He still tries to get into trouble but we bought child-proof locks for the cabinets and drawers. Everyone he comes across loves him though. He likes riding in the car and loves going through drive-throughs so people give him treats and love. Even post-surgery when I'd go in to visit him, the receptionists up front would have him out and cuddling with them in the lobby.

Just a quick hello to let you know Reese was
spayed on Monday. She's just fine.When I picked
her up ,they brought her into the room she put
her paws around my neck and hugged me.
She is such a love.
I'm not very good at scanning and attaching.
My daughter isn't here to help me, so I'll have
to mail you proof of spaying.
How are things? I just wanted to let you know that I entered Ilaeira into Cat Fancy Magazine's annual beautiful cats contest, and guess what. She won first place!!! Her photo will be featured in the November issue. We also get 3 40-lb bags of Swheat Scoop litter, which is nice. We have been using it, and it runs almost $30 for 20 lbs, so every little bit helps! If you get a chance to check out the November 09 issue, take a peek!
Take care, Jessica (has 2 of our babies)
The girls are doing great! They are well adjusted. They love their chicken in the morning.Bella aka "Chrissy" and Peaches aka "Christina" are so different than other cats. They love to sleep under the covers. Peaches will ride around on our shoulders and if we have a hood she will sit in it as we walk around. Bella loves to sit and talk. One time I was looking for Peaches so I walked around the house carrying Bella with me. I swear that when I would call for Peaches, Bella called out for her right after. It was the cutest thing. I have sent some picutres of the girls. I will be sending more in the near furture. Thank you so much for these beautiful, unique girls.
Andrea Cruz (has 2 of our babies)
Thanks for all of this additional information. I will keep it handy. I am pleased to
let you know that Yoda a.k.a "Pete" is doing wonderfully and has made his final
adjustment and is using his litter box like a good little boy. I never had to end up
getting the wood stove pellets that you mentioned. Yoda has finally settled for using
the feline pine that I had put in to begin with. He has such a good little temperment,
we are just so pleased with him He is so nice to my son. He lets my son pick him up
and hold him and doesn't bite or scratch him. What a good little kitty he is! Thanks for him!
I had just finished giving Jonathan a bath tonight, and just before I put him to
bed, I found this little scene :)
Jonathan, drowsy and ready for night-night, and one loudly purring Bailey
on his lap :)
I wished I had grabbed the camera earlier this evening, I caught Bailey
grooming my dog's ear!
(I think I have to discourage this practice though....I don't want to have to
explain to a vet how my naked cat got a hairball!)
Here are some pics. I was about to send you my whole file of pics but I thought maybe
that would be tooo many!!! But Here are just few.
Ceasar is very spoiled and everyone that comes over won't let him go!! Especially my
son who is here for the winter break.
Well, I hope you and your family has a great Holiday!!
Talk to you laters,
Yoon (has 3 of our babies)
I wanted to update you on Peachy's condition, as she was spayed this morning. The doctor
and staff said she did wonderfully during and after the surgery. I was able to pick her up at
3:30 and once she had something to eat--poor little girl, she was allowed nothing after 8:00
PM last night :-( ,and she was starving when she got home--she went promptly to sleep on
my lap, which is where she is as I type with one hand :-)
I also received her official certificate from the TIAC in today's mail, and Peachy is officially
Bath time was a bit improved having a few inches of water in the tub. Thank you so much for
telling me how you do it so Peachy can continue to get bathed in the same manner--less stress
Peachy continues to win the heart of everyone who meets her...my daughter's boyfriend is enchanted
with her (even though he is allergic to kitties)...he seems to have less of a problem with Peachy
because she is bathed so often. My oldest grandson, who is 9, spent the weekend and had such
a great time playing with her--because he has twin 6 year old brothers, their family cat is less interactive,
as their kitty spends some time hiding from the twins who aren't as gentle as they should be (I haven't
gotten to the stage where I will have either of the twins for the weekend like I do the oldest :-) ). And
my next door neighbor, who is not the world's greatest fan of kitties, has fallen in love with Peachy because
she is so sweet and gentle. My husband, is the most smitten of all with her--and is so protective that when
we took her to the vet the doctor made a comment about it <lol> She is of course, my little baby girl, and I
so much enjoy her company--she and I do cooking and sewing together :-) I recently purchased a really
cute pattern for pet pj's, which I will make out of very light weight, pastel colored, narrow striped, polar fleece
fabric for Peachy--she does get chilly some mornings--I'm sure she will look adorable in them!
That is all I have to update today. I hope all is going well with you, and the new kitties, who were one
day old babies when we saw them the day we came to get Peachy, about three weeks ago. I'm sure they
have grown a great deal since then :-)
A million thank yous once more,
Thank you thank you thank you for giving me the bestest little kitty in the entire
world! I absolutly loooooove her to peices!
She has been wonderful from the time I brought her home.
She got car sick on the way home that night, but she was fine once we got
She has adjusted very VERY well to her new home. She is such a cuddle bug
and loves to be held!
Today is my first day back at work so it's the first day she will be left home alone
for a long period of time. I had all last week off, so every day, I would leave her
alone a little bit longer so she got used to me not always being around her. She
would be fine, I would get home and she would be sleeping or playing with her toys.
Hopefully when I get home tonight she will be ok, but I think she will be fine.
I will keep you posted on her progress. Thanks again for everything!
Julie and Olive
I was checking out your site. All the cats are soooo.....CUTE!!!

Just wanted to let you know that little Belle settled
right into our family. She's conquered the bed. Our
other sphynx doesn't really know what to think. Little
Belle is fearless chasing the other kitties. She's
either in turbo-mode or curled up sleeping.
She's really bonded to us too. She makes my husband
feel special. Right now she's sleeping on his chest ;)
Thank you again for taking such good care of her. We
really appreciate all your efforts in getting her here
to us. We are already in love. I will send you some
pictures of her in her new surroundings.
All the best,
Jen Kenmore, Washington
Sorry we havent really kept in contact, but i wanted to let you know how much we LOVE him.
This is Tim and Mandy from Manchester NH, we are the proud parents of Tinker. We picked
him up in February I think. He is so awesome and crazy too. His personality is one of a kind.
I tought him to climb up our pant legs, and then up our shirt and sit on our shoulder, he
loves to sit on your shoulder when you walk around. He is my best friend, im only working
a few hours a week so we hang out all day, he likes to ride in the car alot too. Him and our
other cat get along excellant. He is the most affectionate animal i have ever met. He dosent
seem to mind his weekly baths. We have a schedule, once a week he gets a bath, his nails
clipped, around his fore skin on his nails cleaned, and his ears if needed. He falls asleep when
i hold him like a baby and clip his nails, its incredible. Well enough said, here are a few pics
of him now. (has 3 of our babies)
Imp is my 'little buddy'. He goes with me everywhere.
He has a little stuffed fox named Eevee.
She goes with him everywhere. There is no greater
feeling than waking up in the middle of the night,
with him curled up around my neck and when he knows
I'm awake, he starts to purr.
He's definately a character. I bring him to work with
me during the day. He loves riding in the car.
When we pull up to the parking lot, he jumps up
to look out the window - and noticing where he is,
he purrs and paws at the door. I put his leash on
and he trots in waiting for everyone to greet him.
He gets carried around by everyone. He eats in the
dining area with employees. He believes that
everything that could possibly fit in his mouth
is edible. Except orange juice.... he doesn't
understand how I can drink that. He truely is an
Thank you for bringing him into my life.
Buckley is tough to take pictures of because he almost never sits still.
He loves getting into everything, and his new favorite toys are my slotted
spoons. He'll wait until I'm not paying attention, slip into the kitchen
and steal them out of the drying rack. He's been nicknamed "Kleptoboo"
(everyone's taken to calling him Boo) by my friends for his habit of taking
things from one end of the house and hiding them in another. If it goes in
the bathroom, he'll put it in the kitchen. The plastic spoons that I use
for his food end up in the shower. His most impressive feat though is when
he drags one of the stuffed animals I have (which is about three times as big
as he is) from one end of the house to the other. I haven't figured out why
he does that, but it's certainly funny! When I can't find something it's
"Kleptoboo strikes again!"
It's not all petty theft though, he's a very good snuggler. My mother
absolutely adores him. Everytime she visits he spends the night laying
in bed with her.
As you can see, he's definitely
part of the family. I don't think that you can tell, but he's lost
a lot of his fur, he's now mostly covered in just a little bit of
Thank you so much for my sweet baby!
Hi Donna, My mother is still interested in getting a velour kitten when one becomes available, prefferably a girl. I was just wondering if you could email me and let me know if any new ones are born. Emmly is still capturing everybody's hearts. My mom keeps buying her new sweaters for winter, she fits in XXS dog shirts. She's still got a bit of fur on her too. I've attached a picture of her for you. Thanks again for my wonderful kitten, I don't know what I would do without her. Lacey
