This is Esperanza the Cheetah

Every fall Esperanza and her handler visit the TICA show in Albuquerque which is sponsored by the Enchanted Cat Club. Esperanza is a very special kitty - she's the first Cheetah born in captivity by artificial insemination with sperm collected in the wild! The Enchanted Cat Club is very special too, as every year they donate a large portion of the proceeds from their show to Esperanza's care. From their year 2000 show the purebred cat breeders of Albuquerque were able to donate nearly $5000 to Esperanza! No wonder she looks happy!

I love my Mommies!

Life for a CallisteCats kitten is pretty plush when you have two mommies. This is one of Vesta and Rob's kitties relaxing on her mother's side, with Great-Grandma Phoebe and three littermates in the background. Phoebe's breeding days are over, but she's a wonderful babysitter and still produces milk even though she's been spayed! These little kitties are now much bigger kitties, and all have homes.
