As a young girl, I was introduced at a very early age, to the animal world. I spent my whole life growing up around almost every type of creature you can think of. Not only did I grow up with them, I grew up with immense love and respect for all of them. I always had an array of different pets, from dogs, birds, and exotic animals, but none ever compared to the incredible relationships and connections that I had with my cats.
I loved animals so much, that at the age of four, if you asked me what I was going to be when I grow up, I would have replied “a veterinarian”, and still plan to continue my studies, to eventually become one. I have been around animals even before I could walk or talk. My family had always worked and volunteered with animals, such as the S.P.C.A. vet techs, and fostering many animals. My grandparents bred and showed Himalayans, and I became their main caretaker and helper. I have also spent 10 years breeding and raising many types of finches. In particular, breeding colour mutation gouldian finches.
The first bobtail that joined our family was Mika in 2004. She is mix between American bobtail and Pixie bob. I fell in love with her the moment I saw her, and took her home. She had such an amazing personality, that I had to get another American bobtail. But this time, a pure bred. I then knew the American bobtail was the breed I wanted to work with. I started to attend shows, and entered my alters, and household pets for competition. I did heavy research on the American Bobtail breed, and a couple years later, finally started my breeding program. Next thing I knew, I was hooked into showing my American bobtails. They are such amazing cats, and connect so well with everyone in the family. They are quiet, playful, energetic, intelligent, and out of any cat I have known, they seem to have an incredible sensitivity to human emotions, and understanding of language. They seem to always be there for you right when you need them.
