Long car ride but well worth it. Charlie's home safe and sound - currently playing with some balls and other toys in the library with his bed, pan, food/water.
Keno and Ling want to know WHY the doors are closed....
But even cooler news. When we got down there, the breeder told us "I had to change the contract" - Charlie wound up being show quality, so if we choose to show him we can . We might put him in the January St. Paul show - will see. But I don't think I will plan on showing him. Maybe in the future get another oci and show that one.
He's really outgoing, not afraid of things - can tell he's very well socialized and they trained him well. I didn't get pictures of the other cats - some others have a litter, and others are breeding - but Nancy has a separate house furnished for them so that its like living in her own house. They go out there several times a day, read, play, etc. with everyone. You certainly can tell all her cats are well loved just by the personality of the kittens
The males have their own rooms with furniture, etc.
