When I contacted Jody to purchase an Abyssinian kitten, one of the first things she drew to my attention was the requirement to keep the cats inside at night. From my initial dealings to meeting her to pick up my kitten it was very obvious that her primary concern is the welfare of the cats she breeds. Jody puts a lot of effort into socialising her cats and it was very noticeable when we brought our kitten home. Our kitten was curious about her new home and was very playful. She also had no socialisation issues with our other cat. They are now inseparable companions. :) Once you've committed to the purchase and have paid the deposit, Jody will email you weekly updates and photos of your kitten and when the time comes, arrange for the transport or pick up. She's also quite keen for updates from the owners about how their cats have grown up. We send her emails and pictures from time to time, and enjoy hearing back from her. I highly recommend Abyrose Abyssinians and Ocicats to anyone looking to purchase a kitten of either breed.
My beautiful Maggie (Gen 1 Aby/Ocicat) and sweet Evie (Gen 2 Ocicat) both came from Abyrose. They were happy and healthy right from the beginning. They were well socialized toilet trained and all the things I expected for new kitties. Jody herself was great - I got good advice on preparing for a new kitten, and ongoing advice when I needed it. . Jody also told me about the personalities of my new kittens before they arrived - she was absolutely right . I was able to visit the cattery and meet the cats. Jody's cats are all lovely and sociable. I would highly recommend Abyrose, and any of the kittens.
We found Jody to be fabulous right from the word go when dealing with her. She was very sympathetic about our situation as we had an old family cat die the year before. She discussed the breed of the cat in depth and their nature and traits and what we can expect. Once our kitten was born we got daily photos for the first week, this was really going out of the way so you get too see your kitten and get to see it progress it was very exciting to get these emails, after a week we got photos weekly there after. We were able to visit our kitten when she was about six weeks old and that was a wonderful experience also. When we collected out kitten we were given a very comprehensive pack that had us well informed on how to care for our kitten and Jody was quick to communicate and also really accommodating for any requests. She was also very informative - our kitten had a little complication when she was speyed but Jody contacted us immediately and talked us through everything and nursed her to make sure she was ok. When our kitten arrived home she was confidant and well adjusted had no problems with our dog and was very healthy in everyway and was well on her way to being toilet trained it literally only took a week to have her fully trained and I give full credit to Jody for this as she makes sure the kittens learn from their mothers and stay with the mothers for as long as possible. Our kitten is a delight and is now well over a year old and has had no health issues at all. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jody as a competent and very professional breeder.
