Elliott and Gwynn - SBT Savannah

Dear Amanda and Martin,

I simply wanted to say a big thank you. Thank you for filling my life with a bundle of joy. I should say two bundles of joy now quite in fact. Having lost two previous brother kittens under the age 1 due to a congenital heart defect from a different breeder just prior, initially there was much trepidation on my part to get another cat. 

However, after speaking with you Martin at length I felt instantly comfortable with my decision to get a Savannah from A1. You not only put me at ease but were kind enough to educate me (as it was my first experiencing owning a Savannah) and explain every aspect of the breed, what to expect, and even point out things that I did not consider. 

When it came time to decide on which specific kitten I also expressed some doubt because as I live in the northeast I was unable to see the kittens in person. You reassured me again that your wife was the expert in that department. 

Suffice it to say I could not have been more happy with Amanda's recommendation. The kitty (Male SBT F6) was as social and affectionate as he was handsome. I was so happy that about a year later I decided to get him a friend. I was also so confident that again Amanda would be able to help me through the selection process. 

The new kitten (Female SBT F6) is equally adorable and I enjoy their unique personalities. It was been only 3 weeks now and they are practically best buddies! 

Having retired from professional athletics in the world of auto racing I have always come to admire the Savannah's athletic prowess. Now finishing my doctorate in psychiatry,  I find that I respect their Zen characteristics and presence. 

You two both work with the utmost professionalism and always reply to any questions very quickly. The dedication and passion you have for your profession certainly shines through and we, as animal lovers, are better off as a result.

I will always keep you updated on these playful and majestic beauties as after all...it's one big family and always will be. 

Thank you humbly. Best decision to go through A1. Keep doing what you're doing and don't change a thing!
