Thanks to all the wonderful
people who have taken JungleKatz "babies" into their
families! Here are a few of our cats and the very special people
Mr. T is doing surprisingly well considering he's in a new home.
We can tell he wants a little time by himself for now. We are
really happy with him. Thank you for the helpful tips and adding
me to his microchip
registration. Actually, thank you for everything!
You have a great cattery. I would highly recommend you to anyone!

Here's the update as promised! All
in all I think the girls did well in the car (to Oregon).
Phanta definitely did a little better I guess from her past experiences
going to shows. They would both meow every once in a while, but
I would talk to them and tell them it's alright and we'll be there
soon. I played music for them and it seemed to quite them
down. I did stop and give them water ( neither needed
to use the litter box) and let them walk around inside the car
a bit. We arrived
about 6:15. We immediately carried them into their room, brought
in the litter box, toys etc., and then I fed them. Richard and
I went to the store and bought them a cat tree, more toys, catnip,
brush etc. We closed them in the room last night. (I left the
closet light on for them) This morning I went down and fed them
again, played a bit, and then I left the door open to see what
they would do. They both ran out and started exploring. They're
been cautious, but I think they're having a great time. Every
once in a while they'll stop and pounce on one another, but in
a playful way. Lily loves to be scratched and petted, she's purring
up a storm, and Phanta comes for quick pets and then runs off
for more adventures. I honestly think they will adjust very quickly.
They haven't ventured upstairs yet, I think partly cause there's
so much downstairs to still explore.
We're going to town in a while to pick up more food for them.
So, Bonnie, be assured that they are
both doing very well!! I'm thrilled, and so is Richard. They are
I will definitely keep you posted on their progress.
Thanks so much again. They are a delight!
I wanted to give you an update on Gus ... you'll see he is getting
BIG! Swear to God it seems like he grows every night and he eats
like a horse and plays like a dog to work it off. He has
the character of mischevious little boy with the world at his
disposal, with nothing off limits he won't explore. He hates
to be picked up but insists Karen or I put our arm around
him while he sleeps at night, he's a luv-bug "pet me"
lap kitty...he just doesn't like the "trapped"
sensation of being held. He terrorizes
our other cat "Grizzy", by treating her like Inspector
Clouseu from the Pink Panther movies, attacking her from every
nook, cranny or perch he can find. Grizzy is slowly and relunctantly
coming to the conclusion that Gus isn't going anywhere and
she's finally accepting him into the house... His color is
changing quickly and he's really a gorgeous kitty... Anyway, Gus
says hi and thanks again, we couldn't be happier.

As a breeder, you must get a lot of emails from your customers.
But, I just wanted you to know Cheo and Vader are doing fine.
They are adjusting well.
I didn't want to email you too soon to say we are a family.
But today, I believe we are a family. Cheo and Vader love
licking each other. They also love playing cat
tag running throughout my home, even 12 at night. And anytime
I want to pet them, I get out the rope and play string with them.
They come running!!! By the way, da bird died a week after
I got it. I think there is only one feather left on the
I can't bring myself to give up the cats. I love them.
And, I know they can't be separated. If I put one cat in
a room without the other, they are crying for each other.
When I look at Cheo, all I see is love looking back. And
I didn't understand what it means to have a Free wild cat like
Vader in my home. Vader has this unbelievable bond with
me. Vader is always watching me, even in the bathtub.
I will be watching TV, Vader will come up to me and scratch my
toe to see if I am awake or alive. Vader also does this
when I AM sleeping in bed at night.
Finally, I know Cheo and Vader love me too. I don't know
any girl that would spend hours smelling (and licking) the
inside of my shoes !?! Do you?
Thank you for the wonderful cats,
An update on Yoshi and first

They're all grown up. But they continue to
be the best of friends... I hope you're well.~Loredana, N. California

Well, what can I say? The picture says it all.
Mioche now rules the roost. She is never more than three
feet away from Oncinha and when not, she ALWAYS announces herself
when she enters the room, calling to her.
They sleep together, eat together, and are forever playing.
I left an empty cardboard box in the living room, and the two
of them hide from each other in it, then spring out and chase
each other from one room to another, then back again, all at break-neck
speed. Then they wrestle around and bite each other in play.
It's too funny.
Mioche is quite aggressive for her size, too. She pushed Oncinha
aside, if she want to eat what Oncinha is eating, even with two
separate bowls filled with the same food. And she still
'spats' at me in the morning when she jumps on the bed to check
me out. I guess a discombobulated head and an arm, is too
scary for her. I'm surprised she can't remember it's me,
Oncinha is yawning.
Love these kitties!!!!
I have also been doing some reading about Bengals on the Internet
and am thrilled with how many GREAT points Mioche has, when it
comes to judging their look. She has great spearhead spot markings,
the red nose with the black outline, the mascara eyes, the black
tipped tail, and the glitter of her pelt, especially in the sun
light. The only thing that wasn't in her favor was her size
and the one stripe that is on her right rib cage. Apparently,
a stripe there isn't too acceptable for judging. But I don't
care, because I'm not showing her, just LOVING her a lot.
Thanks again for my wonderful "jungle" cat.
