We have two incredible Siamese brothers that we purchased from Diane Dunaway in July 2022 when they were 12 weeks old. To say that they are beautiful, incredibly smart, playful, mischievous and share their love with us every minute of every day is an understatement. They bring such joy, comedy and amazement to our lives. I think you’ll understand from these photos and videos just what I mean.
1st few days at home:
We soon found out they could sleep anywhere...
They play together all over the house and love anyone who comes to visit ….even little kids
PICKLES! 3 update letters
Hi- my kitten is doing very well! I named him Pickles. He has been using the litter box regularly and eating well. He has slept through the night (until about 6am). On the first day, he was quite scared at first, but within a couple of hours he was out of the bathroom and exploring the condo. He loves playing with his toys and cuddling with us, his humans.
Eric and I both love Pickles so much already! He is beautiful and has brought us so much joy in the past couple of days. I look forward to our many great years ahead.
Thanks for checking in- Kristine

Diane- Hi, I just wanted to send a quick update on my beautiful boy, Pickles. He is doing great and I cannot imagine life without him (even though we've only had him a few months)!
Everyone who meets him thinks he is the most amazing and gorgeous cat ever.
Eric loves playing with Pickles. His favorite toys are a Siamese cat beanie baby attached to a ribbon on a wand and his stuffed rats (to play fetch). Pickles also loves to cuddle and is always sitting on our laps when they're available. He enjoys rides in the car and walks to the mailbox.
Above all else, Pickles loves our constant attention and will meow and even break the rules (like getting on kitchen counters) if we are not paying enough attention to him.
Attached are several pictures of Pickles from the past months. Thank you so much for providing us with such a wonderful and loving baby kitty! Hope you are having a great holiday season.
Best, Kristine & Eric

I sent you several pictures in late December. More recently, a photographer friend did a mini photo shoot of Pickles- attached are a couple more pictures from that. Hope you are well! Thank you again for breeding such a wonderful kitty!
Dolly the seeing eye cat
Dear Diane, You asked me if I would write something about Dolly and what she meant to us. I feel inadequate to the task. I know you will understand when I say she was such a 'human' cat, only a better human than most of us.
We came to San Diego to visit your house in the summer of 1994. I was buying her for my mother because my father had recently left the family after, 40 years of marriage, and she was devastated. I remember Dolly and her siblings were in a play pen in your living room and neither Dolly, nor any of the kittens, seemed particularly eager to leave their pleasant life. Certainly Dolly knew she'd never seen us before. She eyed us warily and seemed to know exactly what was going on. Some kind of 'moment' had come and an important process was taking place. I recall her carefully sizing me up, not even sure if I was allowed to hold her.

Dear Diane It has been only three days, but already my life would be unthinkable without her. It was like a bolt of lightning the first time I picked her up. The strongest possible soul connection. It is such a honor to be her guardian. Thank you for giving her such a perfect start in life and for entrusting this magnificent being to me. I cannot begin to find enough words to properly express my gratitude. Charles
Hi Diane, Here are a couple of photos of Chai-Toi.
She is so beautiful, loving, sweet and playful, and adjusting to dogs and very comfortable with Soon-Yee.
Chai-Toi is spending more time on my lap and cuddling, she's a love muffin. I'm so glad to have her.
Thank you, Rebecca
She's everything a Siamese can be. Very affectionate. Keeps track of everything I do and wants to be in on everything.
Talks her head off when she wants something. (She has more vocalizations than Mel Blank) she takes toys into the tub where I can hear her banging around
late at night as the toys rickoshay around.
She sqwawks at me every morning to get up and when I do, I'll find the bed full of toys that she had brought for me to "make them go".
Loves to be carried in my arms and meet people, She's all Siamese and a yard long. What else does one need to know? -- Jeff F.
FROM ZUZU AND HER NEW PARENTS
Hi Mamma Diane
I am very happy and loving my new home.
I have my new mom and dad well trained already.
We play soccer with ping pong balls and I pretend to love my llama friend but he's not as fun as my sibling at your house.
I sleep on a cuddly soft blanket between Lynne and Bruce and I sit quietly in the morning until they wake.
Then I gently pat their noses with my paw and give them morning kisses.
I love to sit on the screened in porch and watch the birds and squirrels! Life is good.
Sending love - meow -- ZuZu
Diane - My saga. I have wanted for years a cat that was mine. A cat who would follow me. A cat to sleep with. Rafiki is all of that and more.
Last night I brought her into bed. She got right down under the covers and purred. That’s purrrrfection. I got up to use the restroom.
She walked with me. Came back used her cat box. Then we snuggled back to sleep until 6:30. Your training has made her my lifetime pal. -- Judy
She is very inquisitive and loves her toys and cat tree. I have a friend who treats her like a grandchild.
She has made her a decorative box with a pillow (2nd picture), a cave box to hide in (3rd picture), a pillow for her basket for
bird watching & a hammock under the sofa table for relaxing (4th picture), and a tent with noise making toys hanging from the top,
which she plays with when I am trying to watch the news.
We spend a lot of time together; she sits in my lap when I am reading the paper or watching TV, and shares the chair with me
in my office when we are doing computer work. There have been a few times when she has been a little aggressive,
but I think she is just playing with me and will probably outgrow this behavior. She is a lot of fun & I am very glad to have her.
