doing on the table while Charlotte and I rolled out dough and cut
cookies. We would not let him on the table so he climbed up my back and

I have been meaning to write to you for a long time to let you know how happy we are that we purchased a cat from you in March of 2001. Burma is just the sweetest cat and is constantly sitting on my shoulder. The kids all love her and I never thought I could get so attached to a cat. I just wanted to let you know how happy we are that we adopted her and if we are ever in the market for another kitten, you'll be the first person we call. Thanks again.
