EVEY THE KITTEN MEETING HER NEW GREAT DANES "BROTHERS"

Here is a video of the kitten getting acquainted with her new Great Dane 'brothers'. The dogs are alittle confused but are adjusting to having something so small being in charge.

Here is our video "Siamese kitten and Great Danes" [and] more photos taken days later that show how it all worked out.

BOO!!! (New Kitten Update)

She is now running the household! She comes running to me when I say “Hi Boo”. And she’s purring up a storm. She’s talking up a storm. I think she’s decided that it’s a good thing she came, because someone needed to be in charge!
So far, I’m calling her Boo (short for Boojums). Boojie was my baby name that my grandmother called me, and we’re living in my grandmother’s house... so I think it’s appropriate on all levels. So far, out of all her toys, she likes paper best. She has definitely settled in and is doing well!
I can’t stop laughing. She’s so adorable! -Perry-

Hi Diane--
Thank you for all of your help and consideration throughout the kitten process. Cersei has settled in and made herself at home. As you can see, while she likes her toys, she loves playing with mine-- particularly if I'm busy working on my laptop, iPad or iPhone and not paying attention to her. She enjoys exploring my place in search of "trouble," but she prefers to be in the same room with me as opposed to adventuring on her own. She follows me everywhere and vacillates from being a chaotic bundle of pure energy flying around my apartment to a sweet, purring little baby who likes to give kisses, snuggle and nap curled up against me. I absolutely adore her.
Best, Rebecca

INTER-CAT SAVVY, CERSEI

Oh. My Gosh, I was just watching your videos again on your website.
The one that is the longest....kittens wrestling.....lots of meows and purrs.
Alex JUMPED on my lap and watched too, pawed at the screen.
And Diane, I think he recognized your voice too!
He responded beautifully to it.
So very touching and sweet.
It tugged at my heart to see him react in that way.
We decided we'll play the video for him every day!
People who say animals are not smart, do not remember, or don't have souls are people who have never experienced the wonder, and love, that these beautiful animals can bring to everyone's lives.
I feel sorry for people like that.
Indeed Alex remembers you, it was so touching to watch that.
We played the video again last night, same response.
My husband, watching this time, was floored.
He saw Alex's reaction to you as well. It was beautiful.
You will always be his first "human mommy", and he will always love you. J

Hi Diane,
Please feel free to use this letter as a reference for you.

To us, you are the BEST. Because of your love of cats, the way you raise these beautiful souls, you have given our family the greatest gift of all: love. We are immensely grateful for the time and effort you so clearly put into this labor of love. We're so glad we found you so many years ago!
The decision to get a kitten is significant, and not one taken lightly. It never has been. To us, they are not just “cats”, but cherished members of our family. To that end, when we began our search for a Siamese breeder eight years ago, we found Diane Kramer. The search was nationwide, as geographical constraints were not an issue. We interviewed many people, spoke to local veterinarians and checked references from Florida all the way to California, and many states in between. We checked a multitude of breeders as this was so important to us. When all was said and done, it became clear who was the best, most ethical breeder: Diane Kramer. Even a veterinarian in our home state of Nebraska had heard of Diane, had known of her reputation as the best.
In 2005, Alex, our first kitten from Diane, came into our family. From day one, Alex has been healthy, playful, loving and has the absolute best personality. We couldn’t have asked for a better, more beautiful, kitten. In 2013, our female cat passed away and we wanted a companion for Alex. We once again called on Diane. Quite frankly, there was no one else we would trust. So we welcomed Ethan, who marched into our lives and has taken over our hearts completely. As with Alex, Ethan was healthy and perfect when he arrived, full of curiosity, very intelligent and so affectionate! It was obvious these kittens were hand-raised and loving members of the Kramer family before becoming part of our family. What’s more, Diane has always been available for questions regarding nutrition, etc. Her presence in our lives did not end when these kittens arrived home to us. How great is that!
Our family is complete now with our two gorgeous, playful, healthy boys.
And we know that someday, if we decide to expand our feline family, we will look only to Diane.
With gratitude and love, The Kirchmann family

Diane,
I just wanted to send you a few pictuces of Echo, she is now a little over 18 years old, she is a little slower but still is the queen of the house, as she has gotten older she loves to be close to us all the time and, loves to set on the front porch,.
My son was 3 when we got her as a kitten and the two have grown up together, they played together when they were young and you can tell she loves him, as I write this she is is sleeping beside me.
I also wanted to ask if it was possible to get another kitten from you, i could not imagine getting another kitten from anyone but you.

Dear Diane,
I don't know what I ever did so well in my life to deserve my good luck in getting this baby. I'm only grateful that by some miracle the other Arizona family did not take her, and by some wonderful miracle, I have this baby instead. I can't tell you how thrilled we are. I never imagined I could ever hope to have another Siamese as intelligent and adorable as my Chester, but here she is.
For the first day she looked at all of us as if we had kidnapped her, but by evening she seemed to decide, "Oh well, I might as well enjoy the good treats they have around here." So she just ate a little then started to play with a ping pong ball we put in the bathtub (without any water in it of course) and pretty soon she was having a wonderful time batting the ball in and out of the tub. Pretty soon we had a game going consisting of her batting the ball out and me tossing it back in. Immediately she understood exactly what we were doing and began really going at it like a modified game of fetch, only I'd toss and she'd bat it back.
My fiance who has never particularly enjoyed cats was with me and she seemed to know she had to win him over. So the second day she got on his chest as he was sitting in a lazy boy and settled down, looked him right in the eye and gave him a lick on the nose. Then she started to purr with that sweet little sound. When he talked to her, she talked back in a silly little trilling meow. Needless to say, he is now enchanted and in fact, he has been carrying her around the house and even shared his tuna fish sandwich with her. Don't worry, I know this is a No No, but I couldn't resist letting him spoil her just one time. I've never seen him so charmed by anything and I never expected him to be so fascinated by anything feline.
I also can't believe her eye color. I knew it would be dark and gorgeous, but I don't think a photo can really do it justice. I did snap this one of her that I thought you might enjoy. I don't know when you will have more litters, but now we're thinking of getting a second one to keep her company. Should we get a boy or a girl? Get back to me on this so we can get on your next list. Again, Diane, I can't tell you how happy we are we found you. I appreciate so much how careful you are about the pets you breed and the care with which you place them. If you ever need a recommendation, send them to me.
Love, Elsie S

Diane,
It is unanimous in our household: Zooey is a perfect kitten. She is very affectionate and cute and smart and silly. Zelda and Zooey are playing well at this point. Zelda has been bathing Zooey a little bit off and on. They have shared their Christmas toys very nicely this morning. I will say, Zooey is a chow hound. Zooey will eat the dry Canin kitten food, which is always available, but she is crazy about the canned catfood mix. The first time I made it I picked her up to carry her and the bowl to the area where we feed them and she grabbed the bowl with her tiny paws and pulled it toward her and started eating on the way. She continues to eat that with great relish.Thanks for the wonderful kitten!

SOPHIE - "a most excellent cat"
sophie

Hi Diane,

I was lucky to purchase a kitten 19 years ago from you. Sophie became a companion to my isolated young daughter, and later to my son, who now jokingly refers to Sophie his "best friend" during high school. When the kids left for college, she became my buddy, and I have been lucky to become "her person" for part of her life. We put Sophie to sleep on Thursday, she had been a very healthy cat up until a couple of months ago, when her age started to catch up with her. Her loss is mourned by us all. She had a huge presence, and was adored. She was a dog-like cat, she met us at the door, always had something to say, kept us company, slept beside us, and mostly wanted to be where her people were. Even last week, while I did paperwork, she slept on my desk. When she heard the front door open, she would get up to see who was coming home, she would greet them, and give them an earful about her day. She was amazing, and the house seems so empty without her.

She sat on the deck and, as I work from home, she would keep me company, too. She had a good life, there was someone always around during to keep her company. And we were all together on the deck when we let her go from our lives. It was time, and she needed to go, it wasn't fair to her to keep her around for us. Soph liked to be where the action was, and followed us from room to room, kept us company, and loved her family. She was a most excellent cat.

Would you have another like her?

Best, Jen S.

Chessie is now 18 and doing great!

Oh, she's [Chessie is] totally laid back, calm and sweet. Since she grew up with an Aby, whenever the doorbell rings, she runs to greet whoever is at the door -- not shy at all! She's one of those cats that the vets and the vet techs always come out saying "What a NICE cat!" She sleeps under my arm like I'm holding a football, summer, winter, fall, and spring. And she speaks Abyssinian, not Siamese -- she has a tiny little voice.

Hi Diane - It was so very nice talking to you today.
I am so pleased that you will have a kitten for us in the coming months. We would like a male.
Zachary (November 7, 1996 - April 25, 2014) was such a big part of our life. He was just the best cat. He was so smart, and funny, and so very very affectionate. We all loved him more than words can ever convey. I have attached some pictures of Zachary, all of which we were taken in the past 18 months. He was healthy and vibrant to the end. You can see he was just a great cat. We all loved him so!

Hi Diane,
Just wanted to give you an update on Mr. Troy.
He is just incredible!!!
This guy has the most awesome personality! He is such a people cat......more like a dog really. Hannah and I are just crazy about him �� He loves me to death, and will curl up in my lap every chance he gets, but he LOVES Hannah! He has slept with her every night since we got him. As a mom, with a kid that had a broken heart over her "America" passing, nothing brings me more joy then seeing them sleep together. We are so enjoying this special time with him. He is getting big so fast! We will be ready for another one by the end of this year or beginning of next year. We want to enjoy this time with him when he is young, but want to get him a buddy in the future. I think another boy would be best. I want another one just like him. I am willing to wait for the right one. Here are some photos. He never let's me work on the computer alone!

All the best, Heather

Hi Diane, Just wanted to say, today we are celebrating our little ones first birthday! She has new toys and cards from family and friends.
About our Lucy. Her personality is as special as her looks. The smartest one year old kitten I've ever seen. Her favorite TV is The Tennis Channel and The Animal Channel. She watches intently. She shares her favorite toys with us and is always entertaining. Every day with our Lucy is special. She is loving, but definitely has a confident attitude, it is all about Lucy, or so she thinks! She commands our attention and because she is such a charmer we always succumb. Lucy is the boss but a very benevolent boss ! That's our girl and we really adore her and our every moment with her. We Love Lucy!
What a year it has been! She wants to let you know she really loves being with us and she has decided to stay in New Mexico. We hope that you are well and happy. Warmest regards, Melinda, Sharon, and Lucy.
 

WE LOVE LUCY!

Our baby had his six month birthday last Friday, and he is growing to be a very handsome young man (of course)! However, even beyond that, he far, far exceeds any expectations I might have had about the kind of kitten he would be. He is as loving and gentle with me as he has always been, and he is scary-smart. I long ago lost track of how many words and phrases he knows and responds to. He also is unbelievably personable. He comes when I call him (which he has been doing for some time now), and he frequently invites me to play. He know which closet I keep his toys in, and he sits in front of the door and looks back at me clearly asking me to open it (which I always do; it is important for him to know that I “get it” when he communicates with me). Then he will play “fetch” with me until he tires (or I do). I throw the toy, he runs and gets it and drops it at my feet. If I take too long to pick it up and throw it again, he taps my leg with his paw. Another of his favorite games is for me to hide a toy (I have to be quick to pull this off…he’s not easy to fool), and then say “Where it is? Go find it!” He knows just what that means and immediately goes on the hunt. When he finds the toy, he brings it back to me…and a fanfare of praise. For Christmas he received a nifty cat tree, which he enjoys, and which we work into our routine from time to time. I love this boy so much!!
Warmest regards, Valerie

Diane,
I purchased a kitten from you in 1997 and we named him Hummer. He passed away in 2014 at the age of almost 18! I just wanted to share with you that Hummer was the BEST cat I have ever seen. He was the most sweetest boy. I bathed him, trimmed his nails, etc. and never a complaint. He tolerated everything and never gave up on anything. It came the day where Hummer stopped eating but still filled with life. Believe it or not he did not eat for a month. My vet told me I should put him down but I never had a sign from him to do so, he still gave signs of a full life. Then one day, he just began eating….It was a miracle! He lived for another 6 months. It came the day where I had to make the decision to put him down. He would just not give up, even being extremely thin and weak he would still follow me around the house and give signs that he wanted to keep going. He was very ill but still so strong. I kept him going as long as I felt right and humane. I had to make the awful decision for him, so difficult.
Again, I’m sure you hear all of these stories all the time but I just wanted to share that with you. He truly was a miracle, amazing cat that I will treasure forever. Thank you for the wonderful kitty.
Thank you, Ana

Hello Diane, Here is Sidney @ 19.6 yrs old who you entrusted to us as a baby. His last day Friday. The was the most human, warm, friendly, old soul. He slept in our bed with us every night until his death. He talked to us constantly. We would have conversations together. The best cat ever, but probably an old soul in cats clothing.He was a wonderful animal and is greatly missed. I want to discuss a new kitten with you. Tom

Hello,

My name is Teresa, I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I bought a Siamese kitten from you in 1996, she was born April 1. Cindy-Lou lived to almost 19 years old. She was very sweet loving and loyal cat. I would like to get another kitten from you. Could you please let me know if you have any kittens coming up in the new year?

Here's a picture of her at 17 years old. She was a show stopper.

Warm regards,

Hello Diane, I wanted to take a moment to send our warm thanks to you for bringing our dear Mochi into our life. Today is her 4 month old birthday and we can't imagine our world without her in it. She is so smart and intuitive. Each morning she wakes up to give us each a big kiss. She's always so loving and affectionate too! As I previously mentioned, she adores music and always makes a point of taking part when we are practicing. I think she has become a true jazz aficionado. It's been quite a wonderful experience to watch her many playful antics and wondering just who our grown up Mochi will soon be. We love her so much! Enclosed is an updated photo of her taking a rest next to her favorite playhouse. After buying her many wonderful kitty toys and cat exercise gyms...she has fallen in love with a seltzer box! Isn't that always the way it goes. Thank you so much Diane for this beautiful little girl.
All the best to you, Marcéa T.

Hi Diane We took a picture of Mochi to send to you. She is the most beautiful, smart and loving girl! She is fascinated by the many things around her. She discovered my husband's guitar playing this morning and zeroed in on his every musical move. She was studying where the sound came from as well as the percussive movements that created the sound. As I mentioned previously, she loves playing the piano too. We cannot say enough about how special she is!! We have each fallen madly in love with her. All of her many outstanding attributes speak volumes to her incredible start in life...none of which would have happened without the exceptional care and love you've provided her. You are the best! Thank you again. Marcéa

Dearest Diane,
My Siamese, Siren, is exceptional!! I cannot thank you enough for breeding such an amazing being. Siren has a perfectly balanced disposition being part lover, part madwoman! She is highly intelligent and becomes more and more beautiful with every day that passes. Siren is only 7 months old and she is already click trained and performs many tricks including "sit, up, down, jump, speak, twirl, jump-hoop, paws-up, and high-five." We are in the process of learning how to lie down and roll-over. Siren's favorite game is "Fetch" and she plays with more enthusiasm and passion than most dogs. Did I mention she is leash trained as well!?! My significant other and I take her for walks through our neighborhood with her dog Beatrice.
I have never bonded so deeply with an animal and I have never been more proud. I've enclosed a few pictures of Siren growing up in sequential order from day one (her hiding behind a box for hours) to the present day (her confidently walking on a leash by my side). Thank you again for such a magnificent cat! I hope you enjoyed this update and photos of Siren.
Kindly, Jennifer

Dear Diane, A few years ago in 2011, when we were boating in Canada one summer, we came across a boat with a beautiful Siamese cat. We got to talking to the people on board since we had our two cats on board. It turned out their cat came from you! Small world... Take care... Neal S.

Hi Diane -- You DO know how to breed beautiful cats. Everyone that sees them compliments them... And even compliments the 17 year old, Star, that seems to still be going strong... Of the two brothers, Meezer is the more subdued... He weighs 12 pounds. His brother weighs 10 pounds. That isn't to say he isn't crazy active, just not a crazy active. Meezer likes his special spot on the bed every night. His brother, Bennie, will sleep anywhere on the bed. He isn't picky. We love them both and we sure are glad you were still breeding kittens 17 years after we bought the first two from you.... We didn't even think of getting kittens anywhere else. We knew what we would get from you. And we aren't disappointed. I hope all is well with you... Neal

Their personalities are hilarious because they match my two sons!!! Romain (my 8 year old) and Margot are quieter, very cautious, they both know what they want, they love food. Arthur (my 6 year old, on the picture) and Louise are full of mischief, they are always out to trick you, they can be clumsy in a very funny way, food is definitely not their priority, and they always love to push your buttons! Truthfully, they are adorable (as my 6 year old says it)! My oldest has loved introducing them to his friends! They are an amazing fit to our family!
Thanks! Alix F.

Dear Diane
Blue is thriving...and growing up too fast. He has an incredibly sweet temperament! He begs to be in my lap, and he is simply ecstatic when he is there, squirming around, stretching, purring, and very gently kneading my clothes. He will often put his little paws on my face as he looks up at me, and I never have any concern there; he always uses only his pads. He, in turn, gets kisses from me all over his face, neck, back, and tummy. Perhaps you recall that in an earlier email I wrote you that I sang him to sleep on the way home from the airport after I picked him up. What I sang was “His Eye is on the Sparrow”, an old spiritual. Well, he still responds to that song. When I sing it to him, he stops squirming, settles down, and often puts his little face in the crook of my elbow. Other than that, he is super-energetic and amazingly fast, dashing around and exploring everything. And he is quite intelligent. He quickly gets bored with a toy…enjoys it for a few minutes, and then starts looking around, bright-eyed, to find something else of interest. It’s been quite a challenge to stay ahead of him in the “kitten-proofing” department, and I have even had to install child-proof latches on some of my drawers. I love him dearly! I will send off the photos to you now from my friend Grant's iPad (you should be able to open them...let me know if not), and I will continue to keep you up to date on our little boy's progress.
Warm regards, Valerie L.

Lucy is incredibility smart she has favorite toys and brings them to us, drops them at our feet. If one is not enough for us to take note of, she brings a second one. She brings them to us as we sleep, so we awaken with her most precious ones in our bed. She will play fetch and loves to play “catch” with her rubber balls.Hide and sneak associated with mad romps up and down the stairs is another favorite.
She has been quick to learn, when we say no Lucy don’t do that please, she stops and looks at us as if to say well why not then goes off to something else. She is gentle and cuddly but would prefer more play time at this stage. I think, as she matures she will be even more affectionate as this is her true nature, now playing and fun are most important. I am Mama cat and Sharon is a littermate! She of course sleeps with us and awakens us {early} with gentle little paw taps on our faces. She remains with us constantly, always in the same room, with us. If we change rooms she is right behind us.
Well, I could go on and on about how wonderful she is but I know you have many other things to do! In short Lucy is perfect! Melinda

Hi Diane,
We have had our little baby Zack for one week now and Larry and I love him beyond belief. What an incredible little bundle of energy. He is loving, cuddly, feisty, adorable and funny. He has explored every inch of his new home, played with all of the toys and climbed to the 3rd level of his cat tree (hasn't quite made it to the top yet). His little Chartrux brother (Zane) arrived on the same day and they are best buddies. They wrestle and chase and although Zack is a little smaller he is totally equal to Zane in all of their activities and antics.
Thank you Diane for this precious little guy, we couldn't be happier with him.
Sandy and Larry

Nataliya (Nat the Cat) went to the vet's yesterday for routine checkup. The tech wanted to take her home.

The vet, who last year pronounced her Best.Kitten.Ever, called her Best.Cat.Ever.

She never bites or scratches hard and never hisses or growls. My vet who's known me for years says I'll never have a cat this good.
How did you do that? Best, Rich

Hi Diane, good morning from your two Newport Beach Panthers! Lined up for breakfast and sure to watch every move that their mother makes. Mushette and Miu Miu are absolutely hilarious together. The little one is beginning to look so much like mushette. She has the most unusual personality and is always a source of amusement! Hard to explain! She does so many unusual things and has such and assertive personality that she is constantly the subject of laughter and amusement. For example, every morning she figures out someway to open up my bathroom drawer to stick her paw in like a raccoon and grab her share of virgin coconut oil in a jar which she then proceeds to lick off her paw claw by claw better than most raccoons could manage! She then waits for a trip to come out of the sink so she can bite at the water and then without regard for water curls up in the sink and waits to be petted! Every time we come home, she rolls upside down and puts her paws up and wiggles on the ground like a worm. She loves the sand like no other animal we've ever seen. Even with her pet fence collar she runs right through it and little he flies through the air to jump onto our beach then turns upside down and snuggles in the sand kneading her claws like a kitten nursing a mother cat! It goes on and on. She's almost human like! And equally hard to train when she wants to do something! She also will cuddle on your chest justice used to do and going to a Zen mode when she's in the right calm mood. And much more.... Thanks for these beautiful and usual companions! Edward and Karen C.

Savannah is 20 now and I do love her dearly and will miss her terribly. But I am prepared because I know she has had a long full life. She was my intuitive cat Diane. When I lost others (and she did) my Schnauzer Annie to cancer, and my Maincoon Bentley to cardiomyopathy. Savannah "saw" their energy almost immediately afterward arched like a Halloween cat and wouldn't go where Bentley slept in the closet. I had to look thinking something was there, and then I realized it was where Bentley used to lay all the time. And then the next time was on my bed where she always slept and so did my schnauzer Annie. She got on the dresser and arched and hissed at the bed...it wasn't immediately afterward either....it was like you would have thought the cat was crazy as nothing was there. But because she had done it before, I knew Annie was there. I've never had a cat like this. She truly is intuitive. She was so special in that. There is no doubt in my mind that their essence remained for a time and she was able to see them. Nancy S.

Hi Diane, I just wanted to give you an update on the most precious, baby kitty in the whole wide world. I decided to name her GiGi and it is the perfect fit for this young lady. She spent about the first three days in my very large closet,and luckily I was not working, so I spent most of my time in there with her too. After those three days we graduated to my entire bedroom where she was introduced to her brother Timmy. I must say Timmy was not thrilled in the beginning with our new addition, but we took it slowly and now she follows him around like the good, big brother he has turned out to be. It's truly adorable to watch. My Labrador, Piper, could literally care less about Gigi which in turn makes GiGi feel safe to cuddle up to Piper whenever she wants to. She is a true delight and now definitely knows I am her mom, and comes to me immediately when I called her name. We introduced her slowly to every other room in the house, so I can say with confidence at this point, that she is comfortable in every room and is having a blast exploring everywhere. I am in awe of how much I love her. She is so smart and such a little monkey, I just delight in watching anything she does. My husband is absolutely crazy about her also. I hope you enjoy the picture. I thought it was so cute! She is sitting right in my lap as I am texting this to you. So thank you again for being the incredible breeder that you are. The babies you are producing are beyond incredible and I know the hard work that goes into it. I am so looking forward to September when I adopt another little girl from you to join our family. You were so right to guide me away from taking two at the same time. I totally get it now. When we get our next baby from you in September, GiGi should turn out to be a wonderful big sister and show her all the ropes. So I just wanted to update you quickly and let you know that we are absolutely crazy in love with our new baby. Have a good week Diane. I will be talking to you more as we head toward September. Warmly, Liz

Hello Diane!
I took this handsome photo of our best buddy, Psmith, today. He is six now (born 3/13/10) and his personality is a delight. Just like his mama cat, who crawled right into my husband's lap when we came to pick him up, he loves people. He's mellow and funny, has lots to say, and is full of affection and confidence.
He loves to sit in the open windows and sing. He loves to play with my husband's old, frayed boot string (so many expensive toys and that's his favorite!) and follow us around the house "helping" with everything. He never sprays, he doesn't claw things, he's just Perfect Kitty. We adore him.
Thanks again for caring for him before he was born and during those first three months. He's been loved his whole life and it shows.
Thank you. Best, Joanna B.

Hi Diane,
I hope you're doing well! Our family got a Siamese kitten from you back in 2005 and we love him dearly. He's 11 years old now and Kiko is the best Siamese cat we've ever had. I was 14 when we got him and I now live in LA on my own. I'd really like to get a Siamese cat of my own and I was wondering if you were still breeding Siamese. Do you have any that will be available in the next few months? I'd preferably like a male kitten but I'm open to a female kitten as well.

How much do your kittens cost? Do they come with their vaccinations? I'm so excited to take this next step as I have thought about in great detail. I hope this will work out!
Best, Lauren C

I'm at a loss to even begin to describe the impact Athena has had since she she arrived almost two years ago. She has filled a hole in my heart after the loss of my two Siamese, Satai and Rogue, and helped my wife get through the loss of her nineteen year old chihuahua. She is endlessly inventive, playful, and an absolute photo hound ( make that kitty). My shoulder is one of her favorite places to be carried. Of course, my shoulders have shrunk considerably over the last two years ( she hasn't gotten bigger, naturally ��), so I have to provide a forearm for her front paws. She is my constant companion and an absolutely irreplaceable part of our family. I am proud to say that she has me completely wrapped around her paw! Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods; they have never forgotten this.

He greets us every night waiting at the door and demands his treats. We love him! Here he is "attacking" our Doberman puppy Daisy: Click for VIDEO

Finley's a remarkable cat. He plays so nicely with the dogs. And he is a good cuddler with my 18.5 year old Burmese. Also a great traveler to our country house. Everyone who comes to the house falls in love with him. He's so curious, friendly, and affectionate. He always likes to see what is going on. And he's just gorgeous. I am so happy with him. Thanks for breeding such incredible cats.

Hi, Diane,
I thought that you might like to see a couple of pictures of our kitten, Milo, He is very playful and will bring us his toy mouse first thing in the morning while we are still sleeping and wants to play fetch endlessly. It is pretty amusing. He actually will play fetch longer than our Golden Retriever will play fetch with his ball! We also got a very tall cat tree/house and Milo loves to run up to the very top and then also curl up and sleep in the little cubbie on it. You sent with him in his crate on the plane a cat bed. Milo loves to drag that bed all over the house. He takes it in his mouth and runs full speed through the house with it. He will then dive under it and tackle it. That is really fun to see. He loves for us to play with him, but he also is able to entertain himself, devising games with his toys, pouncing on them and stalking them. We wanted to be sure to get a lap kitty, and he hasn't disappointed us. He likes to plop down in our lap and stretch himself out lengthwise. He definitely has a fun personality.
The picture is of Milo curled up in his basket of toys. He definitely is "all eyes". Thanks again for sending him to us!
Cheers!

Diane -
You have been on my mind because it was one year ago today that I had the lovely pleasure of meeting you and bringing a most special cat soul into my life. (Sasha is snuggled beside me as I write). I am and will always be grateful. Thank you for entrusting her to me. I never lose sight of how important she was to you. I promised that I would always keep you up to date on her progress and meant it. I strive my very best to make her happy. High atop the China cabinet holding court over her kingdom. She is the lady of the house and absolutely fearless. (She makes the most of her tall cat tree) Sasha reminds me of an Angelina Jolie action character. She loves adventure and is constantly investigating. She makes me laugh a lot. What a true joy and beacon of light. She makes my life better.My pampered girl was given a cat fountain for Christmas from her Aunt Stephanie. I just set it up a few minutes ago in the kitchen and she is captivated.

They are perfect! Into everything - so very curious. Bart likes to fetch and takes turns having John or me toss his favorite little fluffy ball, then brings it to the other one of us to toss again.

Torrey now weighs 4 lbs 4 oz and Bart is 3 lbs 11 oz. they enjoy eating.

Seems like they have always been with us. They are such happy and affectionate babies.
Thanks for them, Lex

Hi Diane, Hard to believe that today marks 1 month since we met our little meeser girls. I thought it was the perfect time to express our gratitude for bringing them into our lives and to update you on their progress.
From the moment we brought them home they were HOME. Honestly, the adjustment was fairly seamless. It's obvious that they come from wonderful breeding and you did an excellent job of socializing them as babies! They were completely potty trained and (so far) there have been zero accidents. They're extremely smart, affectionate, out-going and lovable. We could not be happier with our sweet girls!! Thank you so much for helping us have a wonderful little family, Diane!
I've attached a couple of photos of our "Shika" and "Rini". Enjoy -- and thanks so much again!
My best, Melinda P.

Dear Diane
Jackson, 12 weeks old, entered our lives after losing our beloved Newman who was 20 years old. We knew that we had to have a Siamese in our lives again so we turned to Diane to get one of her special kittens as we did 20 years ago when we got Newman. Jackson loves exploring the house. He especially loves watching the birds through the door wall that I feed daily. He's a playful, healthy, beautiful kitten, exactly what we wanted. Loving, sweet and affectionate. Purrs especially when you hold him, which is often! We love watching him play fetch with his little kitten toys and melt when he cuddles next to us on the couch to take a nap.
Thank you Diane for continuing this amazing special Old Fashioned Siamese.

She is so amazing, smart& funny too. I'm sure you hear this all the time about your kitties, what wonderful cats they are. On another note I was wondering what do you do for flea control? I haven't noticed any yet, but I'd like to be ready just in case. Thanks again for making it possible to have our little sweetheart in our lives, she brings such joy to our home. Best, Terri L.

Hello Diane,
I wanted to let you know that my beautiful Bam-Bam, born October 10, 1997 (out of "Yesterdays Old Fashioned Samauri" and "Fabulous Fantasia Surprise") has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. He was 18 1/4 years old. He died peacefully at home in my arms.
He was the most beautiful cat and the sweetest cat I have ever known.
We truly cherished him and will miss him terribly.
I wanted you to know he lived a happy and spoiled long life, but is now with his beloved Yum-Yum and Kaiba who passed years ago.
Thank you. Kathleen C., Westlake, OH

Hi Diane,
Wanted to report on bonding progress of Muchette and Miu. By some miracle the bridge to happiness was a simple Trader Joe's shopping bag left on the kitchen floor! Mushette saw the bag, crawled in and for once seemed curious about Miu Miu and then little one of course with kitten playfulness planned her attack. This went on for an hour and in between they got the first real sniffs of each other. Alas, success and thanks to a paper bag that became an ice breaker! You can bet that bag stayed there for a solid week! So now everyone is so excited as they both are becoming more more friendly and playing with each other. My Karen has now affectionately termed our house the "panther house" and every morning there is a game of tag up and down the hall. We left for a trip for five days and this is the first time we came home and Mushette was not waiting for us at the door. No doubt they were upstairs snuggling somewhere.! The happiest moment was one beautiful afternoon when he came into our office den area to find both panthers in a wicker basket sleeping with each other! See further photographic evidence!
Suffice to say we love our view and think indeed it was a good decision for her older sister who seems happier and serve the more active even as the wrestling it's heavy at times and there are still growling sessions and reminders of who is in charge. On that note, your little offspring, is quite the Alpha. Even the vet said "oh my goodness, this one is going to be in charge" and couldn't believe how assertive and comfortable the little one was around strange people, other cats, etc. she stares down and attacks her older sister in a friendly but very assertive way and will someday for sure rule the roost!
Above all, the little one is as you promised a snuggle her even if she's a hyperactive fun plaything. The greatest treasure was having her be warm and cuddly with our littlest son and everyone has enjoyed her falling asleep on their lap. Perfect!
So that's your detailed report which is long overdue. Thank you for a beautiful panther! Hope you are well and we will keep in touch.
Edward C and family.

FROM 12/26/2015
Diane- Hi, I just wanted to send a quick update on my beautiful boy, Pickles. He is doing great and I cannot imagine life without him (even though we've only had him a few months)! Everyone who meets him thinks he is the most amazing and gorgeous cat ever.
Eric loves playing with Pickles. His favorite toys are a Siamese cat beanie baby attached to a ribbon on a wand and his stuffed rats (to play fetch). Pickles also loves to cuddle and is always sitting on our laps when they're available. He enjoys rides in the car and walks to the mailbox. Above all else, Pickles loves our constant attention and will meow and even break the rules (like getting on kitchen counters) if we are not paying enough attention to him.
Attached are several pictures of Pickles from the past months. Thank you so much for providing us with such a wonderful and loving baby kitty! Hope you are having a great holiday season.
Best, Kristine & Eric

Diane-
Hi- my kitten is doing very well! I named him Pickles. He has been using the litter box regularly and eating well. He has slept through the night (until about 6am). On the first day, he was quite scared at first, but within a couple of hours he was out of the bathroom and exploring the condo. He loves playing with his toys and cuddling with us, his humans.
Eric and I both love Pickles so much already! He is beautiful and has brought us so much joy in the past couple of days. I look forward to our many great years ahead.
Thanks for checking in- Kristine

PICKLES!

Dear Diane,
I wanted you to know that the wonderful kitten we adopted from you in 1996, turned 20 yesterday :)
Sasha has been a wonderful pet of ours for many, many years and she is still going strong. We thought you would enjoy hearing from us and knowing one of your little kittens is now 20! There is a picture attached of Sasha in her prime, and at yesterday's birthday party.
When we visited you in San Diego, you had other "great-grandma" cats in the house and I rememer you commenting on the longevity of your line. Well, it is true for us! When we visited you, we were engaged to be married, now we will celebrate 19 years of marriage this year and have 17year and 9year old boys. Sasha has them both beat!
She has pretty strong arthritis in the hind end that prevents her from getting around a lot, but she still loves to cudddle and will purr, purr, purr, with attention. Of course we spoil her rotten and on her birthday, she got a "tuna cake". She has other kitty brothers and sisters that enjoyed the cake too, after we sang Happy Birthday!
Thank you again for such a wonderful kitty!
All the best, Bill and Jan M. (Alex and Niko)

Hi Diane
It has probably been a few years since I last sent you a photo - above is Scotty (who will be 9 in October) and Ty (who will be 11 in October). They are the joy of our lives and are wonderful, handsome kitties and very spoiled. And of course you cannot see in this shot but both have gorgeous eyes..Ty's are an incredible deep blue, while Scotty's are lighter. Scotty is quite the talker.
My husband Bob and I have moved around a lot and these guys are most adaptable. We are currently living in Los Altos, Ca and I just retired last summer. I hope this finds you and your crew doing well. Thought you'd like to see two of your most handsome kids!
Fondly, Tracy N.
(We lived in Palm Desert and drove down to pick up Ty and lived in Redding area and had you fly Scotty to Sacramento, by the way).

Diane, just wanted to update you on Sophie, our Oregon Lap Cat. Sophie is 14 years old and everything we could have asked for in a Traditional (applehead) Siamese cat. Intelligent, sweet, personable, dog-like, and certainly the princess that her full name indicates "Princess Sophinia". (My then 3-year old nephew named her). It heartens me to see photos of the older cats on your website. This is a recent picture of her. We are ever thankful for your careful breeding, your love of this wonderful breed, and your ability to match kittens to families. While we are not looking forward to a time where we will have to say good bye to Sophie, we are heartened to know that you continue to provide these amazing kittens.

Sherlock and Churchill are the second set of twins we were fortunate enough to adopt from Diane. This photo was taken the first night they were with us. They flew from San Diego to Atlanta without a hitch and came out of their carrier ready to play and engage with my husband and I. We were afraid they might be a little stand offish considering all they had experienced that day, but that was not the case at all. They have the absolute sweetest dispositions. are smart and beautiful. We couldn't be more pleased and can't thank Diane enough for breeding such special cats.

Dear Diane
I want to let you know how grateful I am for the two wonderful cats we purchased from you, Sasha and Liat. Sadly, we lost both of our babies in 2015.
Sasha, six months older than Liat, was incredibly intelligent and composed. Liat was our dear clown, and a hedonist who loved rubbing up against us and sprawling on her back for tummy rubs. Both were well-behaved charmers. They even tolerated our brushing their teeth. One of their more enduring traits was their habit of racing to the door to greet us whenever we came home. Sasha would then plop down inviting us to stroke her back, while Liat would dash to a scratching post for a workout, then stretch out on the floor belly-up for her own share of attention.
We miss our two babies every day. But we are looking forward to a new stage of our lives, getting to know two new kittens. We absolutely trust you to provide us with little girls that we will come to love as much as Sasha and Liat.

Beeja and "her boy"
12/06/2015
We all love Beeja so much! The boys just adore her, especially my middle son. My general contractor and even my ex husband are crazy about her. She has everyone wrapped around her little paw. Beeja helping me work on my Christmas cards. That's the box they are in �� Have an amazing holiday!
12/06/2015 (later)
She loves to be in the sink. And honestly the water doesn't really bother her all that much. If you turn it on full force she will move but more like she's annoyed then bothered! She definitely owns the joint!!!! And she knows it! I had a dog, Moe Joe, for a week while Marc was traveling and the first thing he did when he came in was to eat her food. So a few hours later I found her here eating his food :-)

Cecil the Lion Heart, definitely wants to be involved with everything. He follows me every step talking, purring and exploring. He was allowed in the hallway upstairs yesterday and raced to the bookcase and kissed Simba and Troubles ash boxes. Siamese catness at work. He meows like Trouble and wants to be held like Simba. Curious always. Thanks you for another amazing kitten.

Hi Diane
Milo is doing just great. He is very sweet and is feeling quite at home now. He loves to grab his toys and run through the house with them--even the wand type toy. It is very funny to see him being so proud of his "catch." The little guy is doing well. He was pretty scared the first day or so, but by the end of the second day, he was feeling more secure. I had a kitty front pack that I had gotten years ago, and we started to carry Milo around in it on that second day. It made him feel warm and secure. Now, he has made the entire house "his" and he is playing and very happy. He has made an area on a shelf in our family room behind our flat screen tv "his lair" and he loves to bring all of his toys to that hidey place and also takes short naps there (of course the tv is not on!) We couldn't figure out where all of his toys kept disappearing to...and then noticed him actually carry one of them into his "nest" and discovered several toys there! He is purring lots now and eating well and likes to sleep in our bedroom with us. So, he is doing well and is getting acquainted to our house and us just fine.

Diane:
Sake, our female seal point Siamese, passed away on September 6. She was the daughter of Yesterday's Old Fashioned Samurai and Miss Sapphire Eyes Surprise (b. 21 July 1998). She was our only pet for 17 years, our "first" child (we have 10 yr old twins now) and a big personality. She brought our family so much happiness and we miss her. She was a happy girl to the end. Here are photos of her before she passed.
If you have kittens available after New Year's, would you please keep us in mind.
Best regards, Scott, Martha, Philip and Maria

Hi Diane,
Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes. Here's a few pictures of our little Kiwi today. Her first Thanksgiving! She has brought such joy to our family, truly a treasure to have around.
Definitely a take charge of the situation girl, totally fearless. At the same time very sweet, loving and wants to be with her people all the time. She loves to show off her kittie skills. She is totally bonded with our other cat Sasha. They are always together, now We have two kitties to keep us warm at night! I would love to have just a fraction of her energy,Play should be her middle name! Thank you again for bringing her into our lives and making it possible to have such a special girl. I can't imagine our lives without her now. Happy holidays to you too!
All our best, Terri, Erik and Kiwi

Dear Diane -
I hope all is well with you. I realized I've not written to you in quite some time and wanted to "follow up" with you regarding our boys. Desmond and Sidney are an extremely loving and energetic pair! Keeping up with them is helping us stay fit! The boys are truly sweet and affectionate and we adore them more with each passing day. Per our agreement, we had them altered several days ago and you should have received a letter from our vet stating the procedures have been completed. Please let us know if you did not receive the letter. Attached are two photos I took of our kiddos: one from 7/24 of the boys wearing their harnesses prior to a walk; the other from 9/25 of the fellows relaxing on the window sill. Feel free to post the photos on your website, and I'll send more as time progresses. We can't thank you enough for raising such wonderful boys for us!
-all the best Ethan and Jeanny W

Hi Diane!
I wanted to update you on our Bam-Bam. He celebrated his 18th birthday on October 10th! He is happy and healthy. The first 5 pictures I am attaching were taken today, the 6th picture was taken in August! Bam-Bam shares the house with two other cats 11 and 12 years old, and a mini dachshund who is 6 years old. We also had a Golden Retriever who passed away in August. He and Bammy were great friends. I am considering another Siamese for Bam-Bam. I wonder what your advice would be. Also, if you think that Bammy is not too old (he still loves to play and always ready to snuggle), do you have any kittens available?
Thanks! Kathy C - Ohio

Dear Diane, Here are just a few pictures of our beloved Jax. They were all taken within the last couple years. I miss him so very much and am very grateful for the 18 years I shared my life with him. I have some beautiful pictures of him in his earlier years that I will send a bit later. Jax's favorite things were sitting on my lap purring, cuddling with Sophie and relaxing with some Yeowww brand catnip cigars. He was so relaxed in disposition that his nickname was Relax-a-Jax! And, he was also the house chatterbox and had the loudest purr, he was always purring!
As I type this, baby Henry the Handsome is also displaying his loud purr and knocking things off the desk to entertain himself. What a blessing he is!
Warmly, Jennifer M

Dear Diane,
Here are a few pictures of Henry the Handsome! He is such a sweet boy and we love him! Henry is doing very well and is now playing with Brady, our border collie. They pal around all the time.
Henry weighs 7 lbs now and has excellent body condition . He's going to be a big boy! He's also started using his voice more and he's always purring. Henry is quite charming and follows me everywhere. I'll send more pictures soon.
Warmly, Jennifer M

Diane,
Not sure if you will remember me, but you sold me a female kitten back in early 1999. I am in Dallas,Texas. Her birthday was Feb 1999 and you shipped her to me in the first week of May 1999. I named her Cleo. Thought I would give you an update. FYI – the first picture was taken in January of this year – she is with her 4 year old Ragdoll brother – Einstein – on one of their cat trees. She also has a Seal Tortie point sister the same age. Cleo will soon be 17. The other picture was taken when she was about 7 and I may have sent it to you before.
All in all, a jewel of a cat, rules the roost with an “Iron Paw” and always gets her way. She is the top cat!
Just thought you might like to know what has been going on. Take care of those babies. And thanks again for a great cat!

This morning I was awakened at 6:30 by a plaintive meowing at the door. I was in the downstairs bedroom with Cleo, and Marnie had slept upstairs with John. Marn wanted to come in so I opened the door. What ensured was priceless! It was like a slow-motion ballet Marnie finally stopped hissing and the two of them started checking each other out at close range - cautiously but curiously. I must have sat on the floor for half an hour as they circled each other and finally figured out that they had a playmate handy.
They are now upstairs in the living room playing around the chair at the desk and on the couch. They are buddies at last! And all four of us get to sleep together in the master bedroom tonight!!!

Hi Diane,
Our Mushette was born in Sept 2009 so she is 6 years old. Mushette has so much personality. She “owns” our happy home. She makes the rounds of every bedroom with an uncanny knack of sleeping with those in need of comfort who are either sick or in need of comfort. Just last night she let out the most plaintive of cries as she waltzed down the hall with a pink ribbon in her mouth hoping that someone would play with her and unhappy that all three children’s doors were closed!
Attached are a few very recent photos of the Princess Mushette and her family!
I look forward to talking to you and hopefully to adopting a new member of the family.
Best, Edward

Hello Diane Here's a photo of Sydney at 17. She was very sweet. She didn't talk much while Toby (her 1/2 brother) was alive. Once he passed, she found her voice. She got along great with our golden retriever. She often slept using the Golden's plumed tail as a blanket. She loved playing with the feathers on a fishing pole toy. That was her absolute favorite. She liked it so much, we had to hide the toy in a chest of drawers. A few weeks later, I kept wondering why my husband kept leaving the chest drawer open. He didn't. She had figured out how to grab the drawer pull in her mouth and back up so she could pull out the feathers and play by herself! She also used to love to steal the bows off Christmas gifts. She would steal them and hide them and bring them back out to play with in June. I never did find where she kept her stash! Here are a few of more photos of her I pulled off my computer. She's the little one in the first photo. Valorie

Here's our boy, Toby at 17. He was an absolute lover. He had to "supervise" every activity in the house. He helped me on the computer all the time, and would lay across my forearms as I typed. He purred constantly and was the love of my life. His conversational Siamese was epic. We had 30 minute conversations regularly. He slept in the crook of my arm every night from the first day he arrived. He loved rearranging (knocking things off) the countertops. He's the one I told you loved to eat my plants. Even hanging them from macramé hangers didn't protect them. He would launch himself off the chair and swing from the hanger as he snacked. He "adopted" our Keeshond Abbi when we got her as a puppy, and would wrestle with her and taught her how to act like a cat. Toby even taught Abbi to sleep on the back of the sofa. (Not your average sight, and takes a lot of balance for a dog.) Hope you enjoy the photos of both of them. Toby and Sydney were wonderful pets, and they're the reason we came back to you for the new addition. Valorie

My little girl is such a blessing. We have been having the very BEST time together. Sasha has become her official name but I came close to calling her "Joy".
One friend wanted me to call her Elizabeth (after the exquisite violet blue eyes that she has in common with Miss Taylor.) So much heart and intelligence (smarter than many adult cats) but she has also been displaying her humorous side to me. Sasha makes me laugh. A fascinating being. I love her so much. A fellow Siamese owner once said that these unique cats are a cross between a swan and a monkey. There is nothing like them. My favorite animal in the world. So far, she seems to be doing fine with her alone time while I am away during the day. (We were both concerned). Lots of quality time at night. Yes, she now has her very own television.

This is one of her interactive toys. However, nothing pleases her more than crumpled up paper.
We already play fetch and retrieve.

Dear Diane It has been only three days, but already my life would be unthinkable without her. It was like a bolt of lightning the first time I picked her up. The strongest possible soul connection. It is such a honor to be her guardian. Thank you for giving her such a perfect start in life and for entrusting this magnificent being to me. I cannot begin to find enough words to properly express my gratitude. Charles

Here is Zeus on his favorite blanket. We have a toy bamboo cylinder with holes just too small to access a rattle toy inside. Both ends blocked by a ball held in place with a bamboo rod, nearly flush with the cylinder wall. Zeus pulled the pen and got the rattle toy as if without effort. Stinky couldnt grasp the concept and gave up on the toy quickly. Our/your cat is highly intelligent. This is just today's example. We may need to get another kitten from you in a year or once we are in a house. Stunning!

Dear Diane—It is with a very sad heart I write to let you know the wonderful pair of Siamese cats I purchased from you in November of 1996 (born 9/3/96) have died within three months of each other.
The last eighteen years I spent with them were very special, my beautiful Purrfect Pair were a constant delight and I will miss them always. I’ve attached the remembrances I shared with friends and family for you to see what content and loving beings they were, each in his or her way. I believe their long lives and happy personalities were due to the quality of their high quality breeding and care as young kittens. I shall be forever grateful not only for having Pandora and PiWacket as a part of my life, but for my good luck in finding such a fine breeder as you when I purchased my Siamese babies.
Thank you so much for the care you take in continuing to breed traditional Siamese cats at a time when too many people seem to prefer the emaciated looking Siamese cat seen at today’s cat shows. Phyllis M.

Hi Diane,
As you know Newman is amazingly smart. It's as if he has his MD, Juris Doctor, PhD all in one Siamese cat!! Sweet as sweet can be. Precious, loving and the best kitty ever. When you took him out of the playpen 19 years ago and you handed him to us at your front door, I said to him "you are going to be my best friend and my 20 year old kitty". Well he is my best friend and we are working hard toward that 20 year old birthday. Thank you for our Newman!!

I know this is not a cool picture but it says something about her temperament. Poly went for a walk and picked up a tick. So he got a bath, and drops, and was not allowed on our bed all night. Minina kept him company on the floor all night even though her spot is between our pillows. She has a great sense of emotional empathy. Who said cats don't care about others?

Simba and Lucy are soooo big & super cute!! Can't believe they'll be a year soon. Both play a lot and BOTH are lap cats and never far from our sides. In fact, Simba has kinda turned into a "mommy's cat." He follows me everywhere & sits outside the shower when I'm in there moves to sink when I'm putting on my makeup! He has to know where I am at all times & talks all the time & calls out to me if he doesn't know where I am. So loving! Lucy is a doll baby! She talks but more with her brother to know where he is. They are close. She waits by the door (so does Simba) when they hear the garage door & get so excited when we come in & Lucy rolls over for her belly rub!
This last photo was posted on "All About Cats," our vet's Facebook page and got the most likes & comments!! Pam W

Orion is now 21 years old. He is still getting around. I took the opportunity of a natural light situation in late November 2014 to get this shot. Also is one taken at age two. He has been a wonderful pet very intuitive and communicative. He always has a code of ethics. He has a sense of right and wrong. Not running down the stairs to the door, not jumping on the kitchen counter, Cats do mourn. His brother Lapis died 1 1/2 years ago and it took Orion 6 months to get his sparkle back. I am amazed by his stamina. He wraps his paw on my hand to me to bring me in for a cuddle time Orion is still the gentle giant. He still crosses his front legs when he sits. like so many of the cats you have on your page. (see more of ORION and LAPIS)

I love the way he modulates his voice when he talks - and looks you straight in the eye. And how he talks while eating - numm numm numm - he keeps us in stitches. He is so curious and so sweet - loves cuddling! I am going to send you a video when I get one of him climbing all over our other cat.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR RAISING THIS PERFECT LITTLE BEING!

Dear Diane
We named our kitten Sebastian Atreyu and we call him Bastian. I got the name from the never ending story. He is wonderful. He is loving and loves to be in the middle of everything. He has learned the purpose of the doll stroller. I think I told you that the last kitten we got from you, Humphrey Bogart, loves to get in a stroller and be pushed. Well Bastian figured out that if he crawls in it he will be pushed as well but he is not quite sure he wants to be pushed so he will bat at whoever is pushing just in case he may object to it. It is so funny to watch him reason it out. He loves water and is always in the sink when I am near by. He does not talk as much as Humphrey does... So when he does decide to vocalize his wishes it is funny. He is of course a mama's boy and both he and humphrey sleep on me. They both try to be closest to my face. In fact Bastian decided one night he was going to win and laid across my neck. He of course won that round. As you can tell he is doing very well and he fits in very well. I do have a question... At what age do they stop growing or mature. I see him every day so I don't always see how big he is, but people who come over tell me that he is huge. To me he is my baby which he proudly wears but I figured I would ask. I am including horrible doll stroller pics because I had to send them. I also sent one of Humphrey with my son from several years ago. It is something I keep always because only a Siamese would think of it. They are the best.... Hope all is well for you and your family and that you had a wonderful holiday season.

Diane Nineteen years ago, I purchased a lovely Siamese kitten from you. Sadly, Jasmine recently passed away from a failing heart. With her loss, there is big hole in our family that I would like to fill with a new kitten. I have always been very close to my creatures, and now that I am retired, I have more time to enjoy their company. So I am asking you to find me a very specific kitten for another long and loving relationship.
Jazz was an amazing cat - the smartest cat I have ever met. I loved her very much.
The last kitten I purchased from you, Kiko, is exactly what I am looking for in our new family member.
What I love most about Kiko is that she is:
Calm
Sweet
Tempered
Affectionate
Intelligent
Playful
I would like the new kitten to be all these things. In addition, in the range from pet quality to show quality, I am looking for a cat that is closer to show than pet. I realize that would involve an increased expense. When a kitten that meets all these requirements is available, I would appreciate the opportunity to spoil her for the rest of her life..

And we will only consider another kitten from you - Diane, you are absolutely the BEST.
Please let me know if you have any upcoming litters?
We would feel so blessed. Best wishes, Nicole

Hi, Diane.
Do you remember us, Toyger and Tigger P.?
You raised us until we got to go to our Momma and Daddy.
This is us watching our daddy putting together outside Christmas displays. He makes funny noises when he does it. Ha ha.
Mommy has to type this for us because our paws can't press the numbers. Plus... we can't spell...
We just wanted to say, "meow, meow" and send a picture.
Have a nice day. Love, Toyger and Tigger P, Texas

Dags has a wonderful personality. He's very outgoing, curious and is not be shy about demanding a lap to sit on
or more room to stretch out on in the bed. We had no problem introducing him to Subi and let them be alone
together much sooner than expected. Subi seemed to accept him quickly and Dags was able to hold his own
with the roughhousing. There's a lot of stalking and chasing around our place these days.

Hi Diane, As promised, here are some pictures of Xavier (French pronunciation, so it is “Zavier” with his nickname Xavi/Zavi for short which sounds like Bali ). “Xavier Rules” is my favorite picture of him. The other picture shows him with his blue fuzzy ball – he was playing with it one day and then brought it to me. I tossed it out and he fetched and brought it back. We did this a few times that day, but the opportunity has not come up again – if it does I will see if he shows the same interest in retrieving.
He seems to have developed an interesting habit. He spends the mornings with me while I work and then disappears under the bed or into my walk-in closet until about dinner time. He definitely spends the nights where he should –- curled up next to me on my bed!
He is very affectionate and a delight to have.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. Best regards, Susan

BALI HAI!

Hi Diane,
Just wanted to share some recent photos of Niko, Ty and Beau. Seriously, how gorgeous are these guys? Beau is now 6 months old and is, as you can see, a beloved by all member of the family. They groom each other, sleep and snuggle together - it’s adorable. Beau’s personality is just like Ty’s (the kitten version) - he is perfection in every possible way.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my babies! XOXO Colleen
09/01/2016 update
Just wanted to thank you again for my babies. Niko and Ty are six now, if you can believe that! And my Beau is 2. All three are just fantastic in all ways, they bring SO much joy to our lives. They simply could not be any more perfect. I adore them all, but my little Beau is “mine” - you did such a great job picking him out for me, you were so insightful to see how confident, friendly, playful and loving he is. He follows me everywhere, he’s my shadow. All three of my furry babies are just the best and I can not even imagine our lives without them. So thanks again for everything, what you do really matters. You bring real and lasting love into lives, and that is very special. All the best, Colleen

Dear Diane -
Our little Clancy Mittens Fitzgerald Otter-Pop McMuffin turned one this week. He is all you promised and more.
We have always had cats, and he is definitely the most clever and confident. As you warned me, he is beginning to open doors!
His favorite toys: ping-pong balls and paper.
He likes to hang out in upside-down laundry basket - no fears - he needs no help getting in or out!
He moves like a cheetah, and tumbles like a clown.
As you can see from the photos - he loves sinks (he is also fascinated by water and frequently climbs in the bathtubs)!
He gets a little mini-bath almost daily when he climbs in the shower with Randy.
He naps at the kitchen window and watches for his bird friends (some chirping Phoebes) to come by.
We love our little bundle of energy and playfulness.
Much love and gratitude - Lori, Randy & Lizzie

Hi Diane
How are you? Hope all is well. I just want to share a picture of Coco & Angel. They turned 9 last July 29. They are healthy and doing well. Coco is still our little dog. We joke and say that God made a mistake and put a dog in a cat’s body! He’s too smart, curious, sweet, and constantly heels… like a dog! He loves to lick our faces to show affection when we’re carrying him. Angel is still our Ms. Congeniality. Guests who come to our house love her as she is very friendly towards them. We hope they continue to stay healthy and live 9+ more years as they continue to give us joy.

Dear Diane , I purchased from you 2 kittens some years ago ( probably 6-8 years ago) near Christmas.
I just wanted to let you know how much I adore them and what wonderful cats they are.
I call them Sissy and Bubba.
They have been healthy and happy.
I had wanted a girl to replace the one I lost which I had for more than 7 years but I think you sent me a picture of the boy that I got and thought it would be good for them to have one another.
I am so glad I bought the boy too, as he has been so affectionate and friendly and really the more good looking of the 2. He came with such a friendly attitude where the girl was scared and not so friendly. She has a kink in her tail and her tail turns downward where his is upright. He is much larger and friendly to all , but she is my girl and a little more independent but also very sweet and affectionate to me at times.
They love one another.
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with them.
I thought you would be pleased to know they are well loved and doing well .
Thank you, Lynn L.

She is such a great girl, so smart,so much personality, talks all the time, especially when she thinks it's time to be fed, she is very persistent then, maybe relentless is the correct word. She knows she's cute and works to try and get what she wants. Loves to play and tear up and down the hall ( I think she like to hear the sound her pawls make), always with us, she's always up with me before work talking and right at the door talking to me when I get home. She has her stool in the kitchen so she watch what is going on. Sorry this is so long, there are not enough words to describe how wonderful she is and how much my son and I love her. When someone new comes in the house she doesn't run and hide, she has to check them out, had a plumber over to fix something and she wanted to get under the sink with him. We laugh all the time at the things she does.

Dear Diane, You asked me if I would write something about Dolly and what she meant to us. I feel inadequate to the task. I know you will understand when I say she was such a ‘human’ cat, only a better human than most of us.
We came to San Diego to visit your house in the summer of 1994. I was buying her for my mother because my father had recently left the family after, 40 years of marriage, and she was devastated. I remember Dolly and her siblings were in a play pen in your living room and neither Dolly, nor any of the kittens, seemed particularly eager to leave their pleasant life. Certainly Dolly knew she’d never seen us before. She eyed us warily and seemed to know exactly what was going on. Some kind of ‘moment’ had come and an important process was taking place. I recall her carefully sizing me up, not even sure if I was allowed to hold her.
You explained that she was a “bonder,” meaning that she wasn’t necessarily going to be friendly to everyone but, once she made the connection with ‘her’ person, she would be as loyal as a Labrador and be just fine sitting with my mom and being her constant companion.

...It was a pleasure speaking to you and I cannot express how much joy our Skye has brought into our lives. This is especially so now that we have lost our much loved older cat. Thank you also for the understanding you showed regarding the heartbreak of losing such a valued member of the family. I am sending along a few pics of Skye letting you see the beauty she is now. I look forward to being in touch.

Hi Diane!
I just wanted to say hi, give you an update on that perfect little kitten my parents got from you a couple months ago, and ask you a quick question.
So she is doing fantastic!! Her name is Snow (Snowy); she is the sweetest, most confident, curious and adorable little kitty any of us have ever met!! I can't believe how grounded she is, and at the same time how brave! She is the boss of my parents' two dogs, whom she likes to hunt and pounce on. She also has an affinity for the grandbabies (my three year old son and my sister's three year old twins) and especially their toys!! My son Elliott and she hang out together all the time when we visit my parents, and we oftentimes find her sleeping in his portable crib or with his little stuffed animal lovey that she likes too. She loves to lay in the sun, explore the house, and greets visitors more bravely than I've ever seen a cat greet!! We all just love her, but especially my mom. They already have a very special, close relationship and spend a ton of time together. I'll attach some pics, one of her in my son's puzzle box top, and one playing with my son's train table/dinosaurs (that were just her size to topple!!).
I hope that this email finds you doing well!!! My husband and I after meeting Snow and seeing how good she is with the baby (my son is really a cat person more than a dog person-- it's already apparent at his young age) were considering talking with you sometime in the future about putting down a deposit for another kitten! But we are in the middle of moving right now so it probably won't be for quite awhile. Seriously though, the breeding and care for that baby cat is so apparent in her attitude, intelligence and beauty.
Alright I will hopefully talk to you soon Diane!!
Take Care, Kara

Hi Diane, It is hard to believe that it has been 4 weeks since we brought "Baby Henry" home. In some ways it seems like he has lived here forever!
For me to say that Henry is intelligent, fun-loving, affectionate and very social, and of course beautiful would be a silly under-statement; he is that and so much more. He is our third kitten from you, and he has exceeded all our expectations and dreams. You said I would "flip over him" and that is also an under-statement. He is the most extraordinary kitten. Henry is just so much fun and has fit in so perfectly. Perhaps he is our old Zachary, returning to us, but while he has all of Zachary's fine qualities, I think Henry is really his own person.
I have attached some pictures of him that I have taken with my dogs. They get a long so well. Perhaps Henry does not know he is a cat!
I have posted pictures of him on Face Book with and some of my friends say they want a calendar with Henry and Cooper pictures . . . He is quite the celebrity.
We love him so much, and I think he is very happy here!
I left you a phone message today --- hope you got it --- would love to talk to you!
Take care, Jeannette

Hi Diane!
Hope all is well with you. I've finally gotten around to getting some pictures together so you can see how well my sweet fella is doing! Eli is about 10 months old now and is absolutely a joy to have in our home! What a character! My poor dogs never know what to expect. Some days are lazy and quiet, others Eli pretends to be a ninja warrior! LOL! He pounces on sleeping dogs, then flies upstairs, only to zoom back and start all over again, but I wouldn't change a thing. Just love my kitty!
Take care, Connie

Simon thinks he would be a great soccer player! I have told him he would have an unfair advantage - 4 feet.
He says that due to his short stature he should be allowed the handicap.
FYI he had his surgery Monday and had no complications.

Hi Diane, Well, 2 weeks since Beau arrived and as you can see they are getting along famously! Niko on the top looking at Beau, Beau in the middle checking out Ty. Sooooo cute. The big boys are fascinated with Beau, though somewhat unsure as he insists on tackling them and playing non-stop. But they tolerate it well and are even starting to join in the fun. The interesting thing is that Niko and Ty will not let Beau out of their sight - they want to “watch” him all the time!
Beau has adapted seamlessly, he is inquisitive, energetic, loving, and all around perfection.
Thanks again for giving me all 3 of my loves! - Colleen

Hi Diane,
It was wonderful to talk with you again! Here are some of my favorite pictures of Niko and Tyko. Niko has a lighter coat and is very slightly taller. Tyko is the darker of the two, if I recall correctly he is the image of his father. The photo of them curled up together on the chair as kittens is my all time favorite and the screensaver for my phone, computer, etc. People are always noticing it and commenting on how beautiful they are - so true! As I was telling you, they have been absolute delights and joys in our lives.
We had to move from San Diego to Colorado in December 2011, and they were incredibly well behaved for the duration, which included two cross country plane rides, two ten hour day-in-a-row car rides, living in two different hotels for five months total and then moving into our new house. They took it all in stride, no behavior changes, no signs of stress - really they were amazing. I think they handled it all better than we did! We were also evacuated during the recent fires here and once again they took it all in stride. You simply could not find two better behaved, even tempered, loving, playful, sweet animals on the face of the planet. They are the best! :)
All the best, Colleen

My niece just met him and she immedialtey fell in love with him. He is so cute and lovable. He does have the loudest purr I have ever heard. He is really eating well and using his litter box without a problem. He loves his toys. I have yet to let him down on the floor with the dogs. They seem to be getting used to him, but I just want to take it slow and safe. I took him all around the house and showed him everything.

Hi Diane,
So, she's been running around underfoot for the past few hours and pretty much in charge already! Quite fearless, and getting along with the other pets amazingly well for being here such a very short time. She's going to be a delight, and it looks like she and Reka (our year old calico) will be great playmates.

Will keep in touch. Many thanks again - we are so happy to have her!

Dear Diane, Here is our precious Skye on her 17th birthday, May 20, 2014. For the occasion, we put a tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream in one of our crystal champagne glasses (a gift at our wedding almost 60 years ago) and placed Skye on the table near it. I had to be quick with my picture taking because Skye knows she shouldn’t be either be on our dining table or helping herself to our food. A couple of celebratory licks, and down she jumped.
I can’t believe that—as of August 23—it will be 17 years since we carried a tiny kitten from your home and decided on her name before we even reached our car. She would be “Skye,” because her eyes matched the blue of the San Diego sky that day.
Skye has been a perfect kitten and cat. She has never scratched anything but her scratching posts, has never missed her litter box, and even adapted to sharing her favorite sleeping spots, her litter box, and her food dish with an older cat that we “inherited” when Skye had been our “only” for 5 years.
Although she seems fine now, she had a serious health problem. You may remember because I wrote to you for advice. Skye had developed severe asthma, and her vet was talking inhalers and a reduced life span. You suggested that we change our household cleaning agents to the Seventh Generation brand. We did so—and guess who soon showed no further sign of asthma!
We three octogenarians (me, my husband, and—equivalently—Skye) enjoy the sunshine on our deck. We used to walk her on a leash, but these days we humans are too creaky to keep up with her. As a young cat, she would repeatedly jump up into my arms. Now, the touch of the soft tip of her tongue on a bare leg or the gentle tap of a paw means “Please pick me up for a cuddle.”
Skye may have slowed down as she has aged. However, some of us remember how a young Skye would catch us unawares—by flushing the toilet while it was in use.
She was a beloved, rascally young cat! Now, she is a beloved, gentle elderly one!
Regards, Coralyn

 

HAPPY 17th to SKYE

Cali is doing great, she is a little over 8 lbs, she pretty much runs the house, she talks all the time.
Here are a few pics This is her serious look when she thinks she should be fed and dry food just will not do.
Her favorite toy is a stuffed mouse head - and hair ties - but she plays with anything
She ran by the other day with the card board toilet paper roll.
She likes to run up and down the hall, she has so much personality and is very smart.

Hello Diane,
I hope this message finds you and all your wonderful Appleheads doing well. Nysa, the kitten I adopted from you, is now almost seven years old and is doing great. I just love how she has matured and never failed to be exactly the kind of cat I've always wanted. I keep her spoiled with heat pads, cat condos, tasty treats, and plenty of playtime. (I attached several pics for you to see how she has grown.)
Well, I'm now interested in bringing another female Traditional Siamese cat into the house. I only have Nysa and have been waiting until it was the right time to bring another one into my family (just Nysa and me, that is). I'm fortunate that I can work from home half the time now and Nysa has greatly enjoyed this over the last couple of years. When are the optimum times for your kittens to be available during the year? I'm interested in another female, and if you recall, Nysa was one you figured was perfect for me in the fact she is a bit quieter than most of her breed (but not by much and she "talks" quite a bit to me and my friends--which I just love!).
Ideally, I'm looking to the summer or fall for bringing another cat into my house. I plan to telework full time for a couple of weeks while she acclimates to her new place and to also help Nysa adjust to the new family member.
Also, how much are your kittens? I may plan to fly out to see them or work with you, like last time, to pick one for me and fly her to National Airport here in DC. I look forward to hearing from you, and please feel free to call me if more convenient.
Take care.

Dear Diane,
We actually gave Jingle to Rachel for her 13th birthday (the very same day I picked him up 12/18). My husband was ready with sandwiches and my older daughter, Michelle, was ready with cupcakes and we all met at Rachel's school at 12:15pm the second I came into town with kitty.
Rachel knew we were coming to celebrate her birthday at lunch but she didn't know I would have a new kitty. A few of her girlfriends gathered around and had a turn holding kitty. It was such a special moment. Then we sent Rachel back to school, dad went back to work, and Michelle and I played with kitty for a few hours til Rachel got home. Rachel loves sleeping with Jingle every night.
At Christmas all the relatives enjoyed holding and playing with Jingle. Jingle is surrounded by love and hugs every day. He is just like a stuffed animal and will purr contentedly for hours in our arms.
We have two small white dogs (Bichon frise) and my daughter, Michelle has one too. They all love Jingle. And Jingle loves having them as playmates when the humans are out.
Jingle has been a blessing to our family. Thank you so much for our treasured kitty. He brings us so much joy.
Happy New Year, Diane. May God richly bless you in 2014.
Love,
Robin

Dear Diane,
This a a voice from the past you have undoubtedly forgotten. In December of 1995 we purchased a wonderful little Siamese kitten from you. He was sent from San Diego to Burbank Airport via Southwest Airlines for Santa to bring on Christmas morning for our then little Allison. She named him Stevens, after the headmaster of her school. She is now 25 and living in Boston. He lived almost 18 years, just passing away on Thanksgiving of this year. He was healthy until the last few months of his life - a bit slower with failing hearing and eyesight, but remarkably healthy.
A good story about Stevens (falls into the 9 lives category). After moving when Stevens was about 3, we had a June class party at our house. After the party, Stevens was nowhere to be found. He was gone for a week. Efforts to locate him were unsuccessful. Then he showed up, clearly exhausted, unfed, dehydrated, etc. Unbeknownst to us, Stevens apparently had decided to check out the open car of one of the mothers unloading food and returned with her to La Canada at the end of the party. It took him a week to get back home across freeways, the Arroyo, and terrain filled with coyotes etc. a true-life Homeward Bound adventure. Needless to say, he was locked in the house when we had the next class party! Such an independent fellow! We miss him mightily. We would love to explore acquiring two of your kittens when they are next available. I look forward to hearing from you after all these years.

Picasso is a combo of playful, mellow, and mischievousness (which I enjoy because it's all fun mischief). He is also incredibly smart. If he wants something he will think it through and figure out how to get it. He taught himself to play fetch which is his favorite game. He brings me a mousie to me to throw. Meghan

Diane,
It is unanimous in our household: Zooey is a perfect kitten. She is very affectionate and cute and smart and silly. Zelda and Zooey are playing well at this point. Zelda has been bathing Zooey a little bit off and on. They have shared their Christmas toys very nicely this morning. I will say, Zooey is a chow hound. Zooey will eat the dry Canin kitten food, which is always available, but she is crazy about the canned catfood mix. The first time I made it I picked her up to carry her and the bowl to the area where we feed them and she grabbed the bowl with her tiny paws and pulled it toward her and started eating on the way. She continues to eat that with great relish.Thanks for the wonderful kitten!

Day Four We left the dog and the cat alone in the apartment for three hours and when we returned they were each lying on a couch, keeping each other company. She could have hid in either of the bedrooms but she chose to be with him in the living room. She is remarkably confidant and it is apparent that the only experience she had in her life has been positive. I am truly enchanted with her.

Yes, Yimmini is a huge lap-sitter, and often sleeps in my lap for hours at a time. As I only really leave my apartment to go to school three days a week, she becomes upset if I'm not within her visual range. When I come home from class, she always runs to the front door to greet me. Like most kitties, she loves to stalk things, to include my feet. She often steps into the shower while I'm washing and doesn't seem to mind the water. Extremely friendly to all of my visitors, she always melts their hearts. I love her very much and I'm very happy with her personality.
Respectfully, Brandon

YIMMINI

Diane - It was good to speak with you Friday. Dad is excited about the little girl kitten schedule for arrival at our farm (for his 101 birthday). Below are several pixs of Piwacket and Emma Peel. Pi is the older girl (by about 7 mos) and I official gave Dad to her in August 2005. My mom has died in April that year and my Dad attributes his continued good Heath and longevity to Pi. When and if he needs an obit he wants it to closed with " long life due to the love of a good Siamese." Liz

BOO!!! (New Kitten Update - September)

She is now running the household! She comes running to me when I say “Hi Boo”. And she’s purring up a storm. She’s talking up a storm. I think she’s decided that it’s a good thing she came, because someone needed to be in charge!
So far, I’m calling her Boo (short for Boojums). Boojie was my baby name that my grandmother called me, and we’re living in my grandmother’s house... so I think it’s appropriate on all levels. So far, out of all her toys, she likes paper best. She has definitely settled in and is doing well!
I can’t stop laughing. She’s so adorable! -Perry-

BOO & TAT !!! (Kitten Update - November)

Hi Jean and Diane,
These are two of the sweetest kittens I’ve ever known. They love each other and the dog and us. Both sleep with me on the bed next to my pillow, and settle down next to me at the computer whenever I’m working on it. Boo, the Siam on the shelf above the monitor, and Toot, the Aby, on a pillow next to the mouse. They play together and exhaust each other.
Thank you both for such great kitties! -Perry- ! -Perry-

Dear Diane,
Hi Diane, I guess you can see I take a lot of pictures of my babies. Kiko is the photogenic one as you can see, always ready for the camera. He is so small, maybe 9 lbs. and has to be held all the time, like a child........love it. When he wants something he gets it. As I tell everyone, we live in their world and whatever they want, except outside and plants, they get. He is the super friendly one and even if a worker is here at the house and he's never seen them before, he's right there rubbing up against them. Of course everyone loves him because he's not only friendly but beautiful. Quite the Daddy's boy.
Sami doesn't like the camera so much, harder to get pictures of him. He is a bigger boy and weighs almost 18 lbs. Doesn't like to be carried which is okay since I do have a bad back. He and his brother are super close and pretty much inseparable. If I can't find one the other is right behind me helping me look for his brother. Sami is the personality of the house, really entertaining to watch. Tweedy Bird has been his favorite toy since he was a kitten and brings it to Mommy everyday. As you can see in the picture he loves to get any new toy roll it in the dry food bowl then take it to the water fountain then........drop it on the floor someplace.
Yep!!! then one of us walks on it and squish, all the water squirts out. He is a huge talker and a Mommy's boy. Has to be with me all the time and will not sleep anywhere unless next to me, I mean up against me, which is a comfort to me. If Sami is not next to me at bed time, he got in a closet or behind a closed room.
Since Brent and I have no children, they are not our cats, they are our children and we treat them as kids...............we love them sooo much and as much as it hurt when I lost my Coco, I'm so glad the day I called you and then picked up Kiko 3 days later. They are such a joy in our life and give us so much love in return. I'm sure one day down the road I will be getting another baby from you.
Thanks Diane, You're wonderful . Sue

Dear Diane,
Samurai and Iris really outdid themselves with our little Katy!
We absolutely adore her and spend a lot of time laughing at her. She is a joy to be around and loves everyone she meets. She is into everything and talks constantly (sometimes screaming at us). The first day we threw her toy mouse for her, she immediately brought it back and has been retrieving it ever since (she taught us). She has tremendous energy and runs from one end of the house to the other, but loves to have her tummy rubbed more than anything.
We spent this summer up north in our motorhome, and she traveled beautifully and loved her small home and huge yard!
We can't thank you enough for breeding such a beautiful and wonderful animal!
Sincerely, Larry & Patty W.

KATY

Hey Diane:
Here are some recent photos of Riley.
Mr. Riley is more vocal than Sam (Sam is not vocal hardly at all), and he loves to play "chase" and even jump onto the washer as part of the chase. His fur is softer than Sammy's and a little lighter. He is a kind hearted boy, also, and likes to greet visitors as does Sammy. Riley had a lot of energy when he was young but has settled down nicely. Sam, too.
Thanks for both boys. Just wanted you to know what happened to them and that they are happy!
Best, Cathy M.

Hi Diane,
I sure hope you received our initial email a few days after our girl came home. We have named her Bijou, and she is just a doll. We both adore her! She gets along incredibly well with our male cat Petey. They play, they wrestle, they cuddle, and they adore each other. It is great to see. Bijou is a playful, intelligent girl who is equally cuddly and loving. She is a wonderful pet.
I am attaching a few photos i have of Bijou here on my phone. We are thrilled to have her...thank you for breeding such fabulous kittens!!

Hey there Diane,
Thought you might like another update and a few more photos. Tiberius is doing SO well!! He has 100% completely adjusted to his new home. He shows NO fear of anything and loves my condo. He and Landru have also become BEST buds!! The play together constantly. Landru has taken on the roll of "Dad" (I'd say "Mom"...but he is a boy, ya know...LOL). He grooms Tiberius constantly and gets a real kick out of his kitten shenanigans. It is a joy to watch the 2 of them interact together. Tiberius has taken to me like his new Mom AND Dad too.
Once again, I couldn't be happier how all of this worked out. We are a very happy family of 3.
Here's a few new pictures too. Pic #17 is a real hoot. What a poser he is for the camera!!!

Tiberius is AWESOME!! He is doing fantastic!!! The ride home was very uneventful...he slept most of the way. When I got home, I did what you suggested. I took him in the bedroom and rubbed him down with some old clothes. He was a bit frightened at first, to be expected. But I cradled him in my arms, kissed him repeatedly and pet him. It took only about an hour or so and he totally warmed up to me...the bonding was well on it's way.
He is a lover-boy, VERY playful and EXTREMELY vocal. He found some of Landru's toys on the floor the first night and played like they were his. It was a joy to watch. He is eating extremely well and using the new litter box I bought for him with no problems. The stools look great...nice and firm (just what you wanted to know...LOL!!!).
As for his interaction with Landru...it is developing nicely. At first, he wanted to have nothing to do with Ti. He'd hiss and growl at him. But Ti wasn't afraid...actually Landru ran away most of the time when Ti would growl at HIM. He is fearless. He is so outgoing it's great to watch him tear up the place. And as of yesterday they had both really accepted each other...sniffing each other and starting to play together. They've even shared the same food bowl...together! I was afraid of Landru eating the kitten food, but he is totally uninterested in it. It's Ti that will eat everything I put down...for both cats. He loves the dry Royal Canin, but turns up his nose to the canned Innova. I bought some of the Pro-Plan kitten formula and he chows it down.
Your assessment of the situation as to Ti being the best match for Landru was SPOT ON!!! Ti is very inquisitive and has already made my entire condo his home. Whenever he sees me he runs to me and wants me to pick him up and pet him. He follows me around and even comes when I call him. His purring is so loud I wouldn't be surprised if you can hear it in San Diego. Needless to say...I AM VERY, VERY HAPPY!!! He loves his new home and family.
Thanks so much for breeding and selling me this amazing kitten,
Bob
P.S. I am convinced through his actions and behavior that my Mr. Atoz's spirit is in my little baby. It is a wonderful beautiful thing!

I think she is feeling relaxed and at home. She is the cutest thing, we are just waiting for her voice to become the Siamese that she is. She does not like to eat alone and prefers to sleep next to me instead of on my lap. Right now she is on the back of the couch playing with my hair. She is kind of a piggy, she will fight us for our food...we don't give it to her of course. I had to remove her from the dishwasher 8 times while I was trying to empty it. So you can say she is fantastic, inquisitive, smart, sassy, and at times gassy.
Thank you very much for blessing us with her

Aerie wisely steps back to get out of Ariel's way in their playtime, but at other times they can both rough it up together quite respectably

KERBY

In a message dated 07/02/2013 ****** writes:
Hi, Diane,
Just a follow up on our May kitten. We named him Kerby after a couple of ghosts in an old movie due to his astounding ability to completely disappear. He disappeared into our bed frame the day we brought him home for an hour and a half while we searched frantically. He also had a fondness for crawling up into the mechanism of one of our reclining chairs, so we stuffed the interior with paper. He is extraordinarily social, even with visitors to the house. Also, he is the first cat I have ever had who loves to play ball--REALLY play ball, not just bat a ping pong ball around, but fetch and return a little sponge ball. It's his favorite game. My husband says that I am enjoying having a cat so much that I must be simpleminded, but he spends hours playing with Kerby and fussing over him. Anyway, he's really adorable and we love him. Thank you! Shannon M.

KEESU

In a message dated 06/07/2013 ****** writes:
Hi Diane, Just can't resist bragging about Keesu! (BTW, Jake has told me the correct spelling has two e's; he's Estonian so he should know!)
A few minutes ago I took her litter box out of her bedroom to clean it. After maybe 3 minutes I heard piteous mewling coming from her room. I was already finished so I rushed back with her litter box to see what could be wrong.
There was Keesu, lying on top of the spot in the corner of her room where I keep her litter box, looking desperately upset. As soon as I placed the box on the floor, she hopped in and did her business.
You weren't kidding when you said she was very intelligent!
Jackie
PS: I am so happy I asked for a kitten with a great personality. Even if Keesu were the ugly duckling of the litter (which would still make her the most beautiful kitten I've ever seen) I'd pick her in a nanosecond.
In a message dated 06/09/2013 ****** writes:
Hi Diane,
Keesu continues to "shock and awe" us. Last evening we had a dinner party and four people Keesu had never met before came over. At first we kept Keesu in her bedroom, thinking she might feel intimidated. But Jake was so eager to show off his darling that he took them up to meet her one at a time. That went so well that he left her bedroom door ajar so that she could join the company if she wished.
She did wish, and charmed everyone, including one guest who had always disliked cats. (Silly woman; she's been missing out on a lot of joy in her life!)
Keesu's also been keeping Lucius, our 14 pound adult rescue cat, on his toes. She's been chasing him around the house, insisting on playing with him. I think he secretly likes it because he often comes looking for her but in a very sneaky, unobtrusive way. I think he's trying to play hard to get. Another dummy!
That's all for now, Jackie
In a message dated 07/24/2013 ****** writes:
HI Diane:
Loved your last email.  I am so very glad that Keesu loves being social, and that she loves us.  Toward the end of our dinner party she got tired, climbed up into my lap, and went straight to sleep.  It was the cutest thing!
Keesu is the youngest kitten I've ever gotten and I must say, she's a joy.  The contrast between Keesu and Lucius (our adult rescue cat) is painful to me because it highlights how damaged Lucius probably is.  He is the epitome of a scaredy-cat, and although we've had him since he was ~ 6 months old, he still dislikes it when I pet him or even get close to him.  And if a stranger comes into our home he bolts for his hidey-hole downstairs.  It's like he's autistic or something and I'm guessing it's because of what you said: that cold and stress are very bad for kittens.  In his case, he was found in the middle of a busy highway during a freezing rain, when he was small enough to fit in the palm of a petite lady's hand.  A cat rescue lady saw him and pulled her car off to the side of the road to rescue him.  And this is how he's turned out, despite having lived since then in two very loving homes (the cat lady's for 6 months and then with us for ~5 years).

We were thinking of you and thought we would send you some updated shots of Bali and Karma. They have grown up to be some playful rascals with alternating moments of purring bliss. Though they are brothers, they are very different. Bali who is a bit lighter in color is the Alpha and never misses an opportunity to throw his bother around. He is a ham and fetches a toy like a dog. We think he is part Martian. Karma is a love bug who is shy and likes alone time when his brother isn’t around though he provokes him when he can.They follow us wherever we go and re tremendous companions. We recently lost our other venerable cat who made it to 19 years.
She kept the boys at paws length though they were eternally curious of her.
We wanted you to know how much these two delights have filled our home with joy. I hope all is well with you.

Our Siamese cat, Sierra, has just turned 17 on April 1st & lives with the 2 of us & a 12-yr-old Maine Coon. Those 2 breeds seem to bond well together, the breeder close who is to Salinas had several applehead Siamese in fact.
Sierra has been about 99% healthy her entire life, about 3 - 4 yrs. ago she had some arthritis in her legs, so we've been dosing both our cats with hip & joint with MSM supplement every morning with their breakfast. It is effective for Sierra's leg stiffness, much less limping & she jumps on her own to her own claimed high "turf" spots, like at the foot of our bed, or the back of our living room couch on her "blankies" about 18-in. square that Susan made especially for her (even made her a pillow of the same yarn & she loves it!). Sierra also loves to claim the TV remote in whatever room she's in for some strange reason, I've seen her using it for a pillow on occasion.
Thank you.

Hi Diane
Just wanted to let you know that I took the kittens into their vet for their well kitten check & to schedule their appointment for neutering. The appointment went great and they behaved like little gentlemen. Our appointment was with my long time (40 years) vet Dr. Dave Tester. He checked them all out and then just stood looking at them with a big smile and his face. He said, "You see so many that look like the real thing and they're all wonderful but when you see the real deal it just kind of knocks you flat. These are magnificant kittens." I was, of course, very proud & knew the I needed to share that with you. They are growing like weeds. Both are strong, bright, very intelligent, friendly, playful, snuggly and active. They bring smiles and laughter to every moment of the day. I have named them Quavis and Asa. They are the loves of my life. If you'd like I can continue to keep you updated.

Diane, Wanted to give you an update on my beautiful, sweet kitten "Bailey" from the June 2012 litter. He just got neutered and has healed perfectly, in fact I don't think he noticed anything happened ... ha. The vet says he at his ideal weight, weighing in at 10.2 pounds at 7 months! He is playful, affectionate, curious, and is SO smart, just as you said he would be. He comes when he is called, follows me everywhere, lets me sleep through the night, and nudges me awake if i snooze the alarm too many times. I'm in love!!! Here he is sitting on my lap, sitting on his favorite cat shelf where he loves to watch the birds at the bird feeder, and taking a walk in his cat stroller (he jumps in it every time I take it out). Please don't ever stop breeding these amazing babies!

Thank you for raising such happy, lovable, and beautiful cats.

Hi Diane
We've had our two precious babies now for a little over a year and we just love these beautiful furry members of our family. They are just pure delight !!! I call them "living art" and rays of sunshine that move around throughout the house ! They are as different in looks and personality as can be and each brings their own specialness into our lives.

Pansy (the one we came back for a month later and the last one you had out of that particular litter), was worth the trip back to get her. She is still very little and seems like our kitten in many ways. She snuggles with me at night, and often climbs between myself and Bob and purrs and kisses us in the middle of the night. She is still a "retriever" and is so agile !!! She almost literally flies around. She is Bob's cat ~ and when she hears him get up in the morning about 6:30 (she's curled up with me :-)., she slips out from under the cover and follows him to the bathroom, rubs against his legs and kisses him, then jumps on the counter and waits for him to pick her up and nuzzle her a little bit, then bring her back to bed to snuggle up with me. She has captured his heart !
Petunia is beautiful ~ and big !! (around 10 pounds and Pansy a 7 pounder). Her coat is so pretty and she loves to follow me around and just lay her body out with paws crossed and just "be" with me with whatever it is I'm doing. She has gotten to much more loving ~ but she's not my cuddler. She loves to join Bob when he's eating because he shares goodies with her. She and Pansy love to tussle and play, then cuddle up together and groom. Our older Siamese, Peaches, has finally accepted them and they have wonderful romps together and are great friends ! Petunia is more of a lounger while Pansy loves to jump anything high and take her naps up high!
As you'll see in this picture I just took yesterday, they were laying on my still unmade bed and by the time I got my phone camera, Pansy had come over and draped herself over Petunia ! I thought it was so cute, I'd send it to you.
Thanks again for your beautiful breeding cats that gave us their precious offsprings! We LOVE them and pray they have long lives.
Carol (Orange County)

Hi Diane, Just wanted to give you a quick update on our baby. It goes without saying he is absolutely adorable. Not sure how you manage it but your kittens are the best. We had him neutered last week and in 2 days it was like it never happened. Youth is amazing.
Thanks Again,

Hi Diane,
Our new kitty is doing really well. She has made friends with our 2 yr. old siamese, Milo. Milo is very gentle and loving and is washing her and playing carefully with her. I think she is already the boss! She hisses at him every now and then and Milo takes a few steps back and just sits down to watch. She is lying on my desk today while I work. We named her Juneau. It seemed fitting since we chose her just before our Alaska trip and then got to bring her home just after. Thanks for entrusting her to us. I'll keep in touch.
Sincerely, Carole

I have a few pics for you to see Katy over the last few months. They are not in order but you can see her getting a little darker. I think she has a very pretty face and lovely big blue eyes. Of course I am slanted!
She is very communicative, sweet, affectionate and good. What more could you want? My friends are amazed that I found her on the internet from a picture and that she came all the way from San Diego by plane sight unseen. Thank you for such a great kitten

Hi Diane,
I just thought you might like to know that Charm and Buttercup had their second birthday yesterday. These are the two siamese sisters that were adopted by Mark and Marianne Dahl. As these cats mature, they seem to get more and more different, and we love them so much. For their birthday, we bought them a litter box with a tunnel, a portrait to put on the mantal, a special dinner and the silliest musical card that is in the language of Meow! Thank you so much for these two. They are so happy.

The boys are fantastic. You were right. One is a little lover and the other is a clown. We named the little lover, Bali and his brother, Karma. They are everything we hoped for and more. As expected it took a couple of days for them to get comfortable and they are no happily purring, playing and getting into mischief.
All of your recommendations were terrific. We got a great scratching post which they love to use and climb; safe litter and Innova kitten food. They love bedtime and Bali is a squeaky purrer while Karma has deep rumble.
You know we got them as a replacement for our beloved Zak, a 19-year old Siamese who passed away January 10. These boys have brought us much needed joy.
I want to thank for your incredible professionalism, kindness and care in helping us get them. I spoke with over 6 catteries and you were head and shoulders above the rest. Lauren and I may be in San Diego in mid-March. If possible, we would like to stop by and meet the parents. Let me know.

April, my beautiful kitty is fixed.  Hope this will satisfy our agreement, I could photo the bill if you like.
She bounced back to normal in one day.  We had to lock her in a bedroom so she wouldn't run up and down the stairs and throughout the house She is so sweet and quite a talker.  We communicate numerous times every day
Here she is wondering what happened;
Shaved and I guess they Iv'ed her in the leg.
I took her to Dana Niguel Vet because they did a very good job on Jordan (our other cat).
Their webpage said they do "laparoscopic spays".
The vet did a small cut with the stitches on the inside that will dissolve (as it was explained to me).
She has a ton of energy and I love her so much.
She's in my lap as I'm writing this email. 8-)
Thank you so much for making beautiful kitties,
Ron W.

I am delighted to see that you are still breeding. These are my boys Lapis and Orion. They are about to celebrate their 18th birthday. They were born Dec 31, 1993 and their parents were Fantasia the Smart and Samurai. I feel very blessed to still have them in good health. They are wonderful companions. When we got them at 8 weeks, we could not tell apart. At 12 weeks Orion grew larger and we could see the long body and legs. Lapis is more compact and has a flatter face and looks just like the 1980’s photos of our beloved Siamese, Kink.
Lapis is on my lap every chance he gets. Orion has always been very reserved and elegant, when he was younger he was quite a talker.
They share their home with a 14 year old calico named Pretty Girl.

Dear Diane

We have been meaning to write you to let you know that our Coco is doing well, gaining weight and seems to be more than happy living with us.  She does not leave us alone---ever!  She sleeps nestled next to me or to Bill, with her paws across our bodies.  She is not still a minute and will not leave anything alone.  I was packing Christmas shoeboxes for Samaritan’s purse for children around the world and she assumed that the boxes of toys & gifts were hers to play with: one ball became hers as I didn’t think even poor children wanted a ball with tiny teeth marks in it.  If we leave a room, she comes with us.  She is seldom alone in a room if we are home.  She is on the computer desk as I type and is so cute I want to stop and love her.  She is a real blessing!  When my granddaughters come and bring their little Chihuahua, she simply stays put and stares at her.  She doesn’t let that little dog bother her a bit.
She will be having her surgery next month and I don’t look forward to scaring her with a vet’s visit.  Thank goodness we have a kind vet.  Our thanks to you for this very intelligent, cuddly, sweet, naughty kitty.  We love her so much!
Sincerely, Bill & Kay - Paso Robles, CA

This is what she does with everything.  She tries to figure out how to do - what it is that she wants to do.  You can actually see her thinking it over before she makes the next attempt.N

Diane,
This is Randy and Jeanette M****** bragging about our boy again. Buckwheat has passed into the last few years of his precious life. I can tell this because of his slowing down the pace-even with the two Tonkinese two-year olds in the house. But his enjoyment and joy of living has not diminished a bit! Buck’s birthday will be on Monday, August 19th this year. He will be turning a very graceful and proud 16! We were blessed with his arrival about 7 or 8 weeks after that. He is a luscious Chocolate Point and has proven to be the Master of the House. We still giggle at the fact that we received him from you at the San Diego airport with a big green magic marker stamp on his neck; we are so grateful that you made the choice you did, our lives would not have been the same without him! (Boy, was he a chick-magnet on the plane and in the airport!!!)
So please put on a party hat and throw some confetti in the air for our little boy, Buckwheat on Monday.
You will never know the depth of our appreciation for your ability to select our “Winner”
(We have one King German Shepherd – 125lbs., 3.5 yrs. old)
Bucky still rules the roost.
Our Undying love and gratitude,

Hi Diane:

She's GREAT
I've had several cats and 2 dogs during my lifetime but I've never had any animal that caught my attention as much as this kitten.
--------------
At the bridge center, people would ask me, "Why did you get a cat from San Diego? Couldn't you have gotten one here?"
I replied, "Probably ... but I liked the breeder."
I've never purchased a cat before. I never thought I would purchase a cat. But when I decided on Siamese, I knew I wanted a very particular breeder and I felt you would do what was best for the breed.
It is not that I plan to show the cat ... I just wanted a healthy cat.
I could imagine Siamese "mills" where cats that should never breed did breed and kittens with all kinds of defects.
To me, it is easier to get a mutt or alley cat ... but if you are getting a pure-breed I would think you would need higher standards in selecting a breeder.
This was just my thinking.
This kitten is everything I could have hoped for ... and more!

Thanks, Joan B.

I want to tell you that this sweet kittie is absolutely the light of my life. She is also the most beautiful thing ever. Her eyes are the talk of the town. Her doctor calls her his beauty queen. She is the funniest cat I have ever seen with the way she plays with different things. Picture her getting inside of a plastic grocery bag, pulling it tight and rubbing her nose across it until it squeeks. She still fetches her sock toys like a dog, loves it. I couldn't ask for a better companion. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hi Diane
It's only been two weeks since we adopted 'Bugsy' Malone ... he's fit in so well with our zoo that it feels like he's been with us much longer. The first day or so after we brought him home he'd hide under the pillows but as he learned all of the new sounds of our house and came face to face with the rest of the cats and dogs he soon realized there was nothing to be afraid of. Bugsy has settled in quite well ... he very independent, loves to play, runs (or I should say darts) everywhere, he talks quite a bit and is a total food hound. 'Mama' Sara and Clyde (our other male cat) are his best playmates, 'Grandma' Catera will let him sleep on the same bed with her and Bonnie and Friskey could care less either way. Both of the dogs (Jake and Shadow) have allowed Bugsy to 'checkout' their food bowls and even give him kisses, when the opportunity arises ...
Bugsy is a great addition to our family, we ALL love him dearly

Best Wishes, Debbie & Kevin W.

Dear Diane
Suchin was very quiet that first evening and even the next day (see the first two photos) but then her personality started to shine through. She began to talk and leap and run (see the next photos). She is active and does everything with a wild abandon.Her antics keep us laughing. She loves to play and now will go to her toy box or just mew at us until we pull a string around the room while she chases after it. She explores every room and closet and there isn't a piece of furniture that she won't try to scale. I've tied a long scarf over the bedroom door knob and tied a string with a fake mouse on another. Suchin found them  right away and likes to jump and bat at them then runs like crazy to hide then jumps out to try it again. Then, when she is tired, she collapses and sleeps on our bed under the covers during the day or directly my pillow at night.
She is very sweet and affectionate and we marvel at her delicate beauty and her unique personality.
We are thrilled to to have her join our family! Thanks for raising such a gem!

I'm getting him use to small areas a little at a time. He is so full of energy and personality. I laugh constantly at his tricks. Thank you again and rest assured he is well lived and taken care of.

Abby is ... unbelievable.  Really, she is fearless, loves to be loved, loves to travel, is only happy to be by my or my husbands' side, doesn't fret over doorbells, dogs barking, service people visiting, little people visiting, ducks honking and birds chirping, crows crowing, or even the house alarm squealing (by mistake- it even scared me). We both just say wow.
I am gonna get her spayed very soon and she'll be getting her rabies shot also.
Pictures to follow.

Hi Diane,

Just wanted to send you an update and some photos.  The kittens are fantastic - they have acclimated totally to their new home here with us and we absolutely adore them.  They are loving, playful, and pretty much perfect!  They sleep with the boys and play together all the time.  I thought you'd enjoy these photos, especially the ones where they are "hugging" each other.  They do love each other, and we love them!  Taiko, the larger of the two,  is mellow and relaxed and loves to lounge around surveying his kingdom. Niko, the smaller one, is full of energy and into everything.  We call him "Naughty Niko" but he isn't really naughty, just very curious!  Their presence has helped so much in healing our hearts after losing Chino.  Thanks again for all of your help - rest assured that they do have a good home and are much loved! --  Colleen

In 2000 we purchased our boy who is now 10 years old.He was born sept.23,2000. He is the most empathic cat who knows when I hurt and does not leave my side. Our family loves him.Enclosed is his majesty's picture. You can see he lives a life of love and leasure. Thank you .We would love to have another cat from his direct line as there is no other cat like him in the world.Are there any available or in the near future? Blessings to all and have wonderful New Year. The Williams family.

Hi Diane,

Hope things are going well for you.
I thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures of the kittys [Prancer & Scamper] we bought from you about 7 years ago.

Have a nice holiday,
Cheers, Ron & Karen

Hi Diane -

Friend just took a shot of the wonderful cats I got from you. If you want, you may use this picture for advertising.
I can't imagine anything more perfect than these cats. They are so much fun.
Thanks, Kyra

Sorry to have taken so long to respond. Here are your two boys – Sinjin and Kiraly – at 10 mos. They continue to provide us with daily entertainment, laughter and pleasure. For all their boyish ways, they are still quite civilized; they play hard during daylight hours but sleep peacefully with us at night
They’re healthy and happy and pampered daily! Thanks for providing us with such joy.

Hi Diane -

It has been year since we picked up our kitten. Fuji has been a delight - she is very smart, but mischievous. She is a small cat with lots of energy and really enjoys being around people. Thanks again! Laszlo and Susan

Hi Diane
Thank you sooo much for sending me the link! they are adorable and the wrestling is very similar to the games that Miu and her Chartreux brother Marcel play. She also likes to play with a toy identical to the Kitten Playing with Feather.
Miu is such a joy! Not only is she gorgeous, but she is so much fun. Loves to fetch like a dog, is cuddly, playful and loves to chat.
She also adores her brother like they were littermates..they chase each other, they wrestle and they cuddle. And he loves her too. Below is a picture of them together.Thank you again for such a wonderful cat!
Susan

Hi Diane I thought you might enjoy seeing some pics of Milo. He is quite an adventurer and wants to get to the highest place possible. I came home one day and found him on top of the cupboards in my laundry room. Ironically this is where my Max (deceased) used to lay all the time. Almost made me cry. The other picture was one day when I was getting ready to go away for a couple of days. I had been going in and out to the car putting things in to take and came back to get my purse and he was snuggled inside as if to say, "you are not leaving without me!" He is in what I call the "teenage stage", he is long and lanky and curious about everything and gets into everything. But still a "Mama's" boy and cuddles up to my legs in bed every night-
I loved the U-tube video of your babies! I will go back on and put a comment. Take care,
Barb

Hi Diane,

Thanks for the link! Those kittens are adorable. That brought back fun memories. Myles was dozing in my lap while I played the videos; he lifted his head and looked around when he heard the kittens mew and squeak. Hard to believe he will be eight years old this summer! We all love this cat more every day--he is the sweetest, cuddliest, craziest, and most obliging of felines, not to mention handsome. His fur is plush, his eyes are bluer than our lake in summer, and his voice is powerful and frequently heard, if somewhat less than melodic. Your Siamese cats are the best.

We're all doing great, thanks.

Hi Diane -

just a little update. Suki's has been with us a month tomorrow, hard to believe. There is no end to her energy - we tried to take a picture of her with her favorite mouse but it was really hard, she's charging around the house with it 90 miles an hour!! But every night she sleeps between us, either on top of the comforter or way under, totally covered!! She is growing by leaps and bounds and weighs just about five lbs and has lost three of the four baby fangs.

We really appreciate your good training, we've never had to "bad cat" her since she only uses the scratching posts. Since she is with us just about 24/7 she has really bonded with us and she's our little sunshine!! click for previous news of Suki

Hi Diane -

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I had surgery last month and, although it has gone extremely well, I am behind.
I looked at the posts of the kitten and at other posts—yours are the best—most interesting and active. Those kittens are dolls!
My guys continue to thrive—both over 7 pounds now. They are full of curiosity and mischief.
Galahad is the ring leader with Lancelot only half a step behind. I am so glad I have the two of them the play together—I don’t know if Percival and I could keep up with one. They are going tomorrow to be neutered

Piper is a wonderful girl. Smart as a whip and as loving as I've ever seen! So well-mannered and fun. I've been trying to get a good picture when she's playing, but it is hard to catch a flying Piper Jet on film! One of her favorite play areas is our big spa tub - the furry mice are flying and so is Piper! Notice her pearls - an accessory for any classy girl! How are her brothers and sister kitties?

... lately, elegant doesn't quite fit....she is a ball of energy and not quite aware of table edges, bed edges, etc....lots of thrills and spills, but most exciting news! She is a retriever!!!!!!! I have wanted a retriever so badly! I throw "mousey" and she chases, runs back, delivers to me! We do it over and over until she collapses happily.....what a fun girl she is! click for previous news of Piper

She sleeps all night between us, purrs like a tractor and charges around the house like a madwoman. With her personality we understand you miss her. You'll hear from us soon again with more (and better) pictures.

Hi Diane,
Shiki continues to be amazingly wonderful. Here are a couple of pictures I took for you today. Gorgeous little thing. I didn't get any good ones of her tail which I adore because when she's happy and walking/running it bends back towards her head.
She brings toys to me when she wants me to play. She follows me everywhere. She jumps through a hoop. She's never missed her poopy box or scratched anything but her post. I carry her around on my shoulder throughout the house. She purrs loudly (a lot) and meows softly (rarely). She has a favorite toy she likes to take with her wherever she goes. She lets me touch her anywhere ... no sensitive spots. I am so in love!
Good to hear from you. Hope 2010 is treating you well so far.

Happy New Year!
For Mary's birthday that same week, I had a little surprise - a brand new Siamese kitten we named Sensei. His antics this year have been entertaining every single day, and he is spoiled rotten. Each of us has always wanted, even before we met, to have a Siamese, so this was our big treat, and he has never disappointed!
