Our Adoptive Families will testify to our kittens keen intelligence. We believe our babies are so smart, that we encourage our parents to try toilet training their babies. Our babies also have a funny fascination with water or maybe we should say ... playing in the water. One common thread in conversations with our Adoptive Parents is that our kittens are very fearless. You can read from the Adoptive Parents their stories of their babies fearlessness, intelligence or water fascinations on our Adopted Kittens page. Willie Wonka is producing babies that are outgoing, self assured, self confident and very much people oriented.
