Arrival Story:
My boyfriend and I were in a Barnes & Noble looking at kitty books, and we came across a page about munchkin cats. We fell in love immediately! Even before we moved into a pet-friendly apartment, we knew what kind of kitty we wanted. We talked to various breeders, but they were all expensive -- except for one in Indiana, my home state. The breeder there had Toby and his brother Oscar, who is a non-standard. We originally only wanted Toby, but the breeder said she couldn't stand to see them separated, and we agreed, so she gave us Oscar for free -- two amazing kitties for the price of one!

When Toby was neutered, only one of his testicles had descended. The breeder's vet (who performed the operation on both Toby and Oscar) said it shouldn't be a problem... but he was wrong. At about 9 months old, Toby started marking everywhere, so we took him to our vet. Hormone diffusers, hormone pills, keeping him and his brother confined to one part of the apartment... nothing worked! So, we took him to the vet, and they did surgery, and... problem solved!! Check out Toby's Website/Blog!
