I am emailing you to thank you for letting me buy Pippin from you,
I would also like to say thank you for being so helpful, letting me come visit you, and answering all of my questions before and after I picked Pippin up.
He is the most wonderful little kitty — so friendly, curious, and loving — and he is growing into quite the handsome little guy (he’s got good genes!).
I have taken him to the vet on a couple of occasions now, for vaccines and check-ups, and his health record is excellent (with blood, urine and fecal samples all testing well).
He has also met a couple of my friends with cat allergies, and they haven’t had strong reactions to him (one didn’t have allergy symptoms at all, while the other said his allergies were much worse with other cats), which was an added bonus.
I have taken Pippin on a few little walks on a leash – it’s mostly Pippin deciding on direction, to give him some environmental stimulation.
And for Christmas, I brought him with me to my mother’s house, where we stayed over the break, and he was doused in love and compliments. I was a little nervous because I have heard cats don’t like new environments (?), but he did great and was behaving like his usual self (calm and curious, with little bursts of playful energy throughout the day). He also had a lot of little spaces to hang out or hide if he felt like it, but he was mostly curled up on the couch or near people — unless he was being engaged in some interactive play, or his favorite: hide-and-seek.
I have attached a few photos to this email, if you would like to see him now:
