Oh. My Gosh, I was just watching your videos again on your website. The one that is the longest....kittens wrestling.....lots of meows and purrs. Alex JUMPED on my lap and watched too, pawed at the screen. And Diane, I think he recognized your voice too! He responded beautifully to it. So very touching and sweet. It tugged at my heart to see him react in that way. We decided we'll play the video for him every day! People who say animals are not smart, do not remember, or don't have souls are people who have never experienced the wonder, and love, that these beautiful animals can bring to everyone's lives. I feel sorry for people like that. Indeed Alex remembers you, it was so touching to watch that. We played the video again last night, same response. My husband, watching this time, was floored. He saw Alex's reaction to you as well. It was beautiful. You will always be his first "human mommy", and he will always love you. J

Hi Diane, Please feel free to use this letter as a reference for you. To us, you are the BEST. Because of your love of cats, the way you raise these beautiful souls, you have given our family the greatest gift of all: love. We are immensely grateful for the time and effort you so clearly put into this labor of love. We're so glad we found you so many years ago!

The decision to get a kitten is significant, and not one taken lightly. It never has been. To us, they are not just "cats", but cherished members of our family. To that end, when we began our search for a Siamese breeder eight years ago, we found Diane. The search was nationwide, as geographical constraints were not an issue. We interviewed many people, spoke to local veterinarians and checked references from Florida all the way to California, and many states in between. We checked a multitude of breeders as this was so important to us. When all was said and done, it became clear who was the best, most ethical breeder: Diane Dunaway Kramer. Even a veterinarian in our home state of Nebraska had heard of Diane, had known of her reputation as the best.

In 2005, Alex, our first kitten from Diane, came into our family. From day one, Alex has been healthy, playful, loving and has the absolute best personality. We couldn't have asked for a better, more beautiful, kitten. In 2013, our female cat passed away and we wanted a companion for Alex. We once again called on Diane. Quite frankly, there was no one else we would trust. So, we welcomed Ethan, who marched into our lives and has taken over our hearts completely. As with Alex, Ethan was healthy and perfect when he arrived, full of curiosity, very intelligent and so affectionate! It was obvious these kittens were hand-raised and loving members of Diane's family before becoming part of our family. What 's more, Diane has always been available for questions regarding nutrition, etc. Her presence in our lives did not end when these kittens arrived home to us. How great is that!
Our family is complete now with our two gorgeous, playful, healthy boys. And we know that someday, if we decide to expand our feline family, we will look only to Diane.

With gratitude and love, The Kirchmann Family
