We got our first bonafide kisses today; and Wilbur even kissed the VET!! She’s in love with him too and is so happy for us. A big thanks to you for letting us have Wilbur. (A few weeks with his new family) ...And, it sounds like he’s just like Greta at night. I have him play for a while before bed, and then he sleeps like a baby all night long. He sometimes sleeps in his house (a kitty tower with a condo for him), but usually he’s on the bed, and when I move, he chirps, gives me some kisses and goes back to bed. He’s so darned sweet when he wakes up in the morning—he cleans the hell out of my head and face, purring like a motor, and holding me with his paws.
(From Nina, submitted April 27, 2007) We wrote and spoke with many breeders before contacting AJSavannahs. Other breeders seemed more interested in our money and would have given us a kitten immediately. The process of purchasing a kitten from AJSavannahs included more steps, but it was clear this was to make sure the kitten we bought would fit in with our family and would be as happy with us as we would be with him or her. Wilbur (Dark Nose) was not the kitten we were interested in purchasing when we called AJSavannahs, but after several discussions and emails, it was clear that Wilbur was the Savannah for us.
Wilbur is part clown, dog, leopard and domestic cat. He loves to play and his favorite toy is a feather on a stick—he brings it to us to throw, then he fetches it. He can play fetch for …well… hours if we let him. He is constantly doing things that make us laugh—like stealing the corks from a wine bottle and trying to get his head into the wine glass. He follows me, his momma Nina, everywhere I go. He is more loving than we imagined; he loves to lounge in bed with us, sleeping between us, on us, or next to us. He runs upstairs when it’s time for bed, and when we’re up late, he lays at the foot of the bed, looks back at us with drowsy eyes and chirps to tell us to turn off the TV.
