Thai Chat's, Mingus' and
|In Loving Memory of||
(1985 - 2001)
and Mingus (1988 - 2003)
I wasn't planning to get a purebred cat when I went with my brother
and a friend to visit a breeder many moons ago.
But the kittens were so cute and the adults so friendly I was smitten.
These cats are truly companions and they crave affection as much as food.

Here's a picture of Thai when he first came to live with me, 4 months old.
To the right is Thai's brother, Jai Dee, who lives with my
brother. He's on one of his favorite spots, a warm tv set.
Would you like to see more of
Jai Dee and his friend, Mani Tau?
Here is Mingus, a Red Abyssinian. He was 15 years old as of July '03. Mingus was very affection and loved to snuzzle you with his head and would purr loudly and with much passion. He had a happy life and made us happy, too.
My first encounter with this breed was when I went to a cat
show looking for a bargain on a cat tree.
Their fur is striking and I couldn't resist the color combination
with Thai Chat's silver blue :-).
This is Rahsaan, he was my first Aby. He was a wonderful, friendly cat (and he had a really long tail :-) Thai and Rahsaan grew up together and were great pals. Unfortunately, Rahsaan died from an all too common heart disease when he was only 3 years old. Information about Abyssinians can be found in this Abby profile.
In the summer of 1997, Thai Chat and Mingus accepted a new friend
into their home.
Her name is Pumpkin Pie and she came from Maine.
The adjustments were not as traumatic for the three of them as we thought
they might be.
Within a few weeks, well I wouldn't exactly say thay are best friends
but they do get along and are happy together.

She's Hailey, our Long-Haired German Shepard.
She was about one year old when we rescued her from our local
She has a wonderful temperament and I'm sure it won't be long until
we're all used to having her around.
Our two recent arrivals, Jon Li and Meisha.
In this picture, Jon Li, on the left, is a 4-month old and Meisha is 18 months old. Jon Li has already grown quite larger than the little girl.
See more of Meisha and Jon Li.
We appreciate the folks who have come to visit.
