In early Spring of 1987, my husband saw a tiny photo in

Because we work at home, our cats get a lot of attention
and we get a lot of pleasure despite all the work of cleaning up after
the little darlings. Except for queens with litters and the three studs,
everyone is free to roam. While that sounds good, we have tossed out most
of the furniture. After thirteen years of cats at liberty, it was way

All our cats come from distinguished ancestry and are carefully
bred for show with a firm grip on health. Of course, pets are sold for
temperament and we stand behind every kitten that leaves this house. We
never sell casually and prospective buyers need not feel insulted when
questioned and very carefully. Kittens and cats are helpless to fend for
themselves, after all.
