Susan was a huge help in helping me find the right cat and also getting him to me safely and without any complications. May the cat you get be as great a companion as little Booboo here! -- Tom T., New York, NY
Sue, A Testimonial From The Cat It was a cold, sunny morning that Friday, January 6, 2006 when Grandma Sue kissed me goodbye and sent me on my journey from Helena, Montana to NYC to live with my new mommy Lorin. I was eight months old at the time and not yet weighing my full grown five pounds. All that I had was my baby blanket, a toy, food and water and the blue fur on my back. I reflected back a month when I was in the nursery and a call came in from a dear friend of Lorin's, requesting to learn more about me. I was so flattered as she had chosen me from all of the male folds she had viewed at various catteries. Grandma told the friend that I was small with a big personality, beautiful, loving, very intelligent, great disposition and loves to give kisses. As a matter of fact my name at the time was "Love Potion Number Nine." My new mom to be had just lost her beloved cat of over nineteen years so I knew that I had tall paws to fill. At the time, she was so grief stricken that they weren't sure if she was ready for a new kitten to enter her life. I waited nervously for two days to learn the outcome. I was very attached to grandma Sue and spent most of my time riding on her shoulder; however, my litter mates were leaving the nest and I wanted my very own home as well. Grandma finally told me that my new mom to be had read my bio and looked at my photos and fell in love with me; hence, I was embarking on my new journey as Zander (named after Alexander). My full name on my papers lists me as "Zander Blue Button Bear" and I have a list of nick names far too long to reiterate. That was over four years ago. FYI, I also have a younger brother Brandon whom we all adore. Just one sniff and we bonded for life. As I was used to having fury friends to play with, I was lonely when mom was out or at work. Being the vocal boy that I am, I conveyed my feelings and she complied with my wishes. I recently heard mom chatting on the telie with grandma Sue and my ears are still ringing with the praise I received. As a matter of fact, they'd be standing up if they had been folded. Mom thanked grandma for raising such a wonderfully sweet boy and that she couldn't have been happier with the choice her friend had made when selecting me. She also admitted that most of her guests come to visit me and my brother. After all, I do know how to turn on my Zander charm and kiss everybody who comes through the door "smack on the lips." I've even been compared to a dog (don't know how to take that one). LOL Once they are comfortably situated, I ring my wind chimes for my guests as I am quite the entertainer and consider myself to be a musician. I've attempted to play the piano but unfortunately my paws are too light to push down the keys. Perhaps once I'm enrolled into Meow High School, I can take up the bag pipes. Look for me on you tube to see me performing! Thank you on behalf of mom and myself for reading my biography and if you are contemplating adopting a cat or kitten, I strongly refer you to Quietimes Cattery and my loving grandmother Sue. Hugs and kisses, Zander Dear Susan
Hi Susan, Just wanted to thank you again for this wonderful lover boy! Logan is such a doll and has fit in so nicely! He is a great fit for his feline friend Yoda and is such a sweet mellow easy going cat and is very loved and spoiled. Take care, Cynthia
Dear "Grandma" Sue! Thank you soooo much for our dear "Mama". The first time seeing her owl eyes I knew I had to have her. She is sooo beautiful, and makes our home so much more interesting. She rules the roost! We love her dearly, with all of her different personalities- from playful, to loving, to Queeen- and am looking forward to our next kitten with you! Thanks for all the love you put into raising such beautiful and well cared for animals. With love from Colorado! Moni, Samuel, and our Mama Macerama!
Dear "Grandma" Sue: We consider ourselves so fortunate to have found your web site three years ago. When we saw the photos of Snow Prince, who was 3 years old at the time, we fell in love with him and couldn't wait to get him home. He is now 6 years old, and each day we find an additional reason to love him. Thank you so much for making it possible for us to find a little companion with such a sweet, loving nature. And his coat of fur is so plush we can't keep our hands off him. Therapeutic, indeed! Everyone falls in love with him when they meet him, not only because he's so beautiful but because he is so well behaved. He was obviously well loved and trained during his first three years with you. Thank you so much. Below is a current photo of our "little boy." Best wishes, Elvi & Tony.
Dear Susan~ Finally, some pictures of Noah for you . He is such a doll. Thank you so much for him. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect kitty. He is so affectionate, well mannered, playful, and a very, very handsome little guy. I'm always getting compliments on what a beautiful cat he is and how incredibly soft his fur is. You did such a wonderful job with him. What a healthy little guy he was and still is. After his first visit to his vet, the doctor wrote on his exam sheet "Outstanding cat" and "Beautiful". I absolutely agree!! Thank you Grandma Sue and Grandpa Mike for my sweet little Noah. Brandi LOL! I love it! Noah is doing great. He sleeps in bed with me at night (all night) with his head on the pillow. It's sooo cute. He's still nervous and really doesn't care for my dog Nike (she is such a nag). He is a very good boy and yes he is definitely laid back. When he plays you can just tell his imagination is going. Very smart also; I kind of feel bad for saying this but it seems as though he is quite a bit more intelligent than my regular cats, like he really thinks things through. Do you often find that to be the case with Scottish Folds ? Brandi
It's been ten years since my husband Kevin and I moved from the Boston area to the Annapolis area: two historical, albeit somewhat varied milestones of the Eastern Seaboard. Annapolis is to a fair degree separate from the hustle and bustle both of Baltimore and especially the Nation's Capital, and yet within reasonable commuting distance to both major cities. Annapolis is a quaint, relatively quiet smaller city with a beautiful, historical downtown surrounded by quiet suburbs, the Chesapeake Bay, and the beautiful Severn River. The Annapolis area is not only nice, but very economical especially compared to the major east coast cities. We moved here with our Newfoundland, Clouseau who was 6 and 1/2 at the time and were able to purchase a home in a very pleasant neighborhood directly adjacent to Annapolis. Our neighbors are the nicest ever, and it has a good size yard for a large dog, which Clouseau certainly was. When cancer got the better of him 4 years later I was devastated. I'd never lost a dog of my own before. When we got him he was a 3 month old puppy and I was 25 and I guess I thought he'd live forever, and Kevin had grown so attached to him he took it even worse than I did. Fortunately, some solace was brought by 3 cats who lived with the people who sold us the house. A lovely family: 3 children, very responsible hard working young man and woman who in their spare time are volunteers at a local animal shelter. The house was getting to small for them with the third child on the way and they also had 2 golden retrievers and 5 cats. Three of their cats they had adopted from the shelter shortly after they moved here in the very early nineties. Mark, an accomplished carpenter, had constructed a home made cat tree complete with landings and a tree house at the top; very sturdily constructed in a discreet corner of a laundry room which had a door with a conspicuous hole in it where the kitties could go through but the dogs could not. To sum up, this family loved and took very good care of their pets, that much was clear, and we all got along in many other ways too, and yet they implied it was difficult maintaining all the animals because their pets had come from different backgrounds and didn't all get along. I suggested that I'd always wanted cats, so they let me choose from the family of three (a mother and two daughters), or their other two cats. The mommy, Zephyr and her daughters had clearly claimed the laundry room with it's tree as their retreat and/or home if things got too busy around the other parts of the house. So in a way, these kitties whom I grew to love so much had "come with the house" so to speak. When Clouseau died they were there to comfort me and it got to a point where I felt I'd never be able to bear losing any of them either. When we adopted them they were well in to middle age and when we did have to let them go several years later; it hurt so much; I had grown very attached to them, and the house seemed very empty, and even after a year and a half of losing Lucy and Ethel who became sick and died a year and a half after their mommy, the pain was just not going away. One night Kevin and I happened upon a special on Animal Planet where they were describing different breeds of cats. When the excerpt on Scottish Folds came up I was hooked from the first glance and told myself at least to put it into the back of my mind to search for when the time was right. Not too long after, I thought I just wanted to look at some pictures of Scottish Folds, and when I did a general search it wasn't long before I came across Sue's wonderful site with all of these great pictures of Scottish Folds! Kittens and Subadults available, the one that really caught my eye was a long haired folded male, which looked like an adult from his picture. Sue had named him, Mr. Blue Jeans, and the name suited him just perfectly. He really looked like the show cats on the special I had just seen, the longhaired version. Scottish Folds also come in shorthair, and I browsed the available "adult cat" section just to see what was there and what I saw, I just couldn't resist. Mr. Teddy Bear, is what Sue had named him and his pictures and her description of him was just too much and I knew I had to have this cat. After Emailing Sue for the first time, I found out elsewhere on the sight that Teddy's roommate and best friend was the one other cat on the adult page, Mr. Stanley. Stanley is an elegant, exquisite creature who reminded me a little of my Ethel in body frame. Nothing comes close to that face of his however, and just from looking at the pictures Sue took of him there was just something that said "Silver Dollar", and took me back to my childhood when I used to love collecting silver dollars and visiting Silver Dollar City with my mom and dad in my home state of Missouri. Both Stanley and Teddy were almost two years old when I purchased them. They have been worth every penny and then some. These cats have been carefuly bred over the decades specifically for domestication and their temperament has been astoundingly different from any other cat I have ever had. No scratching. They never scratch. They can easily be taught to scratch on a scratching post or flat scratching toy, but they never scratch people even by accident and an accidental scratch on our furniture has been extremely rare. Zephyr, Lucy and Ethel would scratch on anything they could, the furniture the mattress in our bedroom any box that happened to be lying around, and they were almost semi-wild in that they would scratch up my arms in protest every time I needed to put them in a carrier to take them to the vet. It was something I had just gotten used to. I loved them sooo soo much and they loved me but it was always on their terms. When Lucy became sick with hepatitis I was able to train her to take medicine orally but it took a lot of time and patience. And putting her or Ethel into a carrier to take to the vet was an extremely stressful event every time. I have had no such problem with Sue's cats. Kevin can't even believe they're cats he says they act more like dogs in their friendliness, and this story just gets better and better. I couldn't get my mind off Mr. Blue Jeans, he was almost an adult, and looked quite a bit like the long haired Scottish Folds we'd seen on animal planet. He was sent to us no problem and my hands then felt pretty full, but I had become addicted to Sue's site and saw that Blue Jeans' brother (litter mate) needed a home after an initial reservation for him fell through. This cat's name is Bobbie, Sue has named all our cats, and from the pictures I couldn't believe my eyes, but when we picked him up from the airport he behaved differently from the others as we drove home with him, with me sitting in the back seat of the car and the door of his carrier facing me. The other 3 cats turned away from me out of shyness, they'd been through a lot from the flight so who could blame them and they burrowed into the blanket Sue had sent along with them in their carrier. Bobbie was quite a different story. He kept looking directly at me, inquisitively with big round dark blue looking eyes as if he was curious about me and his new surroundings. His eyes never left me and when we got him home and inside (it was dark outside when we picked him up from BWI) we put the carrier on the floor and opened the door. Our three other cats: Blue Jeans, Teddy and Stanley just sort of sitting or hiding from a distance watching, at first nothing happened. So I'm thinking, is Bobbie just acting a little shy, or... and then this unbelievable creature emerged from the crate. Quite confidently I might add: plush medium-long coat with a large plume of a tail. Bobbie is a tricolor, a tortoiseshell, where the colors swirl and best of all, there are these splotches on his mostly white muzzle. And what a face! Along with big, round dark blue eyes, Bobbie also has this adorable fang that sticks out just a little further than normal and his lip sometimes curls up naturally to reveal it. It's hard to describe but it is sooooo cute. The first thing I said to Kevin was,"oh my gosh, no wonder she named him Bobbie!", but what came to mind also due to Bobbies' long plume of a tail and speckled face reminded me of a somewhat larger wildcat is a larger wildcat, the snow leopard found near the Himalayas. Bobbie can have the look of a Bobcat, Lynx, Snow Leopard, from time to time he looks and acts like a dog, and there are times when he even looks like a baby seal when he's all curled up, and staring at you with those huge eyes of his. Scottish folds are human-oriented animals; they are bred to be loving and have excellent temperaments. This will be true of any Scottish Fold, straight eared included. If you purchase a straight ear the perk ears will be the only difference between the folds and the non-folds. Teddy's ears are only ever so slightly folded, he's practically a straight ear, and he was my first pick. I have been telling Sue ever since he arrived he's my dream cat: laid back, huge and once you start petting him you can't stop; he has a luxurious coat. Both he and Stanley are shorthairs thus very easy and fun I might add to comb and maintain. Since Scottish Folds have been bred to be fully adapted to domestication, they have no sense of the danger of the outside world, and must be kept strictly indoors. A clean environment, good quality food, regular vet checkups and a well maintained litter box are must-haves. I highly recommend a non-clay based litter since the clay in litter can cause illness and fatalities in both cats and dogs, and health problems even in people who happen to inhale it's dust. I use "Worlds Best Cat Litter", and have been very happy with it. I have four cats, but again, no kids, and any expense to buy and maintain a Scottish Fold or two for a family, or someone single, or even maybe someone with another pet like a dog; anyone who has the time and desire to make one of these beautiful human companions a part of their life, will be well worth it. There will be expense involved, emotional as well as some financial in order to be an ideal owner. Sue Tyler has been wonderful in answering all questions I've ever had, gives great advice and has lots and lots of experience with animals. I highly, highly recommend her and as she already knows, I am extremely tempted to purchase yet another cat from her. You will love these cats. Elli and Kevin, Stanley, Teddy, BJ and Bobbie from Annapolis, Maryland
Thank you so much for Willie! It's been only 2 days that we've had little Willie and he has already brought us so much joy! Pete and I have always done shelter or rescue cats so it was very different for us to get a kitten that we had never met. We are amazed that you described his personality and is traits to a tee. We love that you know your babies so well. We appreciate you went above and beyond the call from first contact and we are very grateful we have such a bundle of love and purrrs! Thank you again! Rina & Pete, Encinitas, CA PS - can't wait to get the next kitten from you hopefully real soon!
Hi Sue, It's been a little over two weeks since receiving Lennie and he is doing great. We love him very much and our home feels a lot warmer with him in it. Thank you so much for all you have done to get him to us. His temperament is so loving and affectionate and we couldn't ask for anything more. Also, our daughter has really grown attached and loves to rub his tummy when he rolls over. He has fit right in to our family and will be here with us forever... Again thank you so much. Kit, Kortney & Sophie
Hi, there! No one can help but melt when they see the adorable face on my little Betsy. She has quickly become a favorite amongst my friends. I've had her for almost a year now (it'll be a year in May 2011) and she's fitting in quite well with my other two kitties. Her favorite time is spent sitting on the highest level of my kitty tree and watching squirrels in my backyard through the sliding glass door. It took her a while to grow accustomed to me, but I can tell that she's starting to take a shine to me as I have to her. When I'm nearby her in her kitty tree she'll start purring up a storm for me to come pet her, and then when I do she drools out of pleasure... it's pretty darn cute. I'm really enjoying my little lady Betsy cat, and I look forward to even more years with her ahead..

Dear Grandma Sue and Grandpa Mike; --I am settling into my new home in Spokane very well. I share with Her Furry Grace Ysabel, who is Very Old and rules the household. She is Lynxpoint Siamese, and has traveled a hundred thousand miles by car with Mama Carolyn and Auntie Jane, and never lets anyone forget it. I have a ready-made Little Brother, Eushu---but everyone calls him Shu. Shu is half Bengal, black with spots, only five months old, and very fast. He used to bowl into Her Grace and knock her over, only trying to play, but Her Grace did not appreciate it. Mama and Auntie heard about me and brought me from Montana to be Eushu's Big Brother. I am a year older than Shu, and strong, and I have Manners that even Her Grace approves. I enjoy playing chase with Shu, and wrestling: we are always velvet-paws and we are careful of the vases. We play from breakfast til past suppertime, and Shu is learning Manners very fast, so he doesn't get scolded any more. Everyone admires me and tells me I am handsome and gives me treats, and I am feeling very much at home. I never make mistakes, I have not broken anything at all, and Her Grace is very happy to have her sunbeam in the afternoon and to have her nap in peace. --So I am in a very happy Forever Home, and I have already traveled three hundred miles by car. It was scary at first, but Little Brother was with me and he is already on his second thousand miles. I was traveling like a veteran by the time we got to my new house. Grandma Sue, you can be proud. --I get petted and my tummy rubbed whenever I like, I eat and have special treats, and have clean water and an upstairs to play chase in. Shu tells me there is a whole basement he goes to where there are new things to explore, but I have not been there yet. Mama Carolyn gave me a second name: it is Seishi, and sometimes Sei. It means Returning Spirit. I will always be Robby, too, but I like my new name. --This is me in Mama Carolyn's working chair. It gets a sunbeam of its own when Mama Carolyn goes on lunch break. Then the chair is all mine, and it is right by a Window with a tree and birds to watch. --Love Quietime Robby the Peacemaker! --P.S. Isn't it amazing what capabilities, these multifaceted Scottish Folds are capable of!
Hi Grandma Sue, Just wanted to send you a new photo with both Wallace and Willie for your testimonials page. They have brought us so much joy and both have unique personalities. Willie is the lover boy. He love to snuggle with both me and Pete. He is so smart. He know how to express his needs (whether it's carrying his favorite toy to you, or pushing his cat treats off the table) and knows when we are telling him something (like off the dining room table). Wallace is the mischievous one and is always up for a game of fetch. He's not above ambushing his brother if he's under the sheets or in the fresh laundry basket. Both like to horse around and wrestle with each other and when they are not wrestling they are giving us barrel rolls at our feet or just simply hanging out in the same room. They must always be where we are and rarely want to be apart from us (with exception of chasing bugs on the back deck). Thank you again for such great cats!
Dear Susan & Mike: guess what! we're 1 year old TODAY! We told our Daddy that he better write to you both TODAY! yes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions! Dear Friends.... it seems like yesterday that the kitties were 8 weeks old and I met the two of you. The time has wizzed by and the two most precious, darling kitties are growing up into their "adolescent" stage...lol. You can see how dazzling beautiful and handsome they are. And good and sweet and loving and obedient too! Their "integration" with our other three Quietime Boyzzz, Scotty & Dickens is 100% complete but Mr. McGregor is not quite there yet...but getting better all the time! It's impossible to explain where "our time" goes, but there never seems enuf time to write. I hope to be able to send you a video soon. Hope all is well with you and all our 4-legged friends in Montana. Flavia & all our kitties send you their purrs & licks. Thank you again, for letting us "adopt" our precious kitties. They are really a "gift from Heaven." All our love & kisses too, Earl & Flavia
Dear Susan-- Thank you so much for our little bundle of joy. We named her "Fiona Forever After" because she is just like a princess fairytale and keeps growing more beautiful everyday. My 9-year-old son, Kiegan, is just thrilled with her. He loves to play chase with her using feathers and laser light---what enjoyment she has brought to our lives. Gryffindor, our 2 yr old cat has a "baby sister" now and couldn't be happier to share his abode with her. She also incredibly patient with my two year old human child...It is like she knows he is a baby, and needs patience. I haven't worked with many Scottish Folds in my practice as a veterinarian, but she is all that I hoped she would be. I'm not disappointed in my choice of this breed and would recommend one to anyone, any day of the week. Everyone at work has fallen in love with her beauty and good nature as well. Best regards, Amber, Kiegan, Quinlan, and Gryffindor
Quiet Times Cattery's Susan is a gifted and caring Scottish Fold breeder. My husband and I selected our male kitten, and Sue took care of everything else. Mitty, along with his baby blanket and stuffed animal toy, flew from Helena, Montana to Washington, DC., and was none the worse for wear on arrival: he was ready to explore and get to know us right away. Mitty already was litter box-trained, and NEVER has behaved inappropriately. An energetic creature, Mitty charmed his way into our house, and we haven't been the same since. He has had no health issues, is extremely personable, and has been taught a few tricks. As this most recent picture indicates, Mitty's luxurious and distinctive coat always gets compliments from the vet. Just to look at him is utter joy. The Scottish fold is my "dream cat." Mitty has helped me weather the profound loss of a cat I adored; we recommend you look into getting another very soon if you have had a loss of this magnitude. Thank you, Susan, though mere words cannot convey the degree of gratitude we feel for all you did to get Mitty to us. Dr. John and Ivy Bigbee
Monty is getting really big and he is just so much fun! He plays fetch with a ball like a dog - seriously - I throw it and he brings it back to me in his mouth and drops it into my hand so that I can throw it again! He sleeps with me every night and is very cuddly (just like my other Scottish Fold was). He is very vocal - it is funny - almost like he is talking to you.
Cat memories and funny/memorable moments with Max, I have quite a few. I guess it would be best to start at the beginning, in order to give an accurate portrayal of Maxie. While growing up in Ohio, I've owned several cats throughout the years. I got my first cat from the local animal shelter when I was ten. He was an American Short Hair mix. He was a very sweet cat. I have a lot of memories of him including the very first one, with of him licking my hand as I walked by his cage. Shortly after he passed, we decided to get another cat. However, this time we decided to go through a breeder. After doing quite a bit of research,we decided to get a Scottish fold through a local cattery. We had read that they were very sweet, loving, and intelligent cats, each with their own unique and wonderful personalities. I know I'm jumping ahead but, this has proved to be spot on in terms of every Fold that I've owned. The cat that we decided upon is named Jojo. He loves to be around the family. He has his own chair in the living room, that he likes to sit in while we watch the Cincinnati Reds/Bengals games. On a side note, he's the only cat that I've ever known that likes box rides. He'll jump in any empty box, and he likes for us to push him around on the linoleum floor. Since getting Jojo, we've added two additional cats including Maxie. Max has always meant a lot to me. We've created such as special bond. When I go to sleep, he lays right by my feet on the bed. He's also great around other cats. He used to play all sorts of games with our Burmese when I was living back in Ohio. In particular, he used to play with our Burmese by hitting a ball in one of the toys, which in turn made a noise that attracted the other cat.******* When I got a job in the Boston area, it was very hard to get my mom to send Max here. She loves her cats just as much as I do, especially when it comes to Folds.***** From Lynn, THE SWEET MOM: Here is my testimonial: I purchased my Scottish Fold kitten back in September of 2010. His name was Max-a Million and he truly is one in a million! Susan does not disappoint when she tells you about the cat or kitten's personality! Unfortunately for me, my son fell in love with the cat and when he relocated to the Boston area for employment, he wanted to take Max with him! I surely couldn't blame him for that! Anyway, I would highly recommend Susan for anyone looking for a Fold and I can't wait to get my next cat from her!!! Lynne Ranney blackcatjoe@aol.com
After researching many different breeds we settled on getting a Scottish Fold. Being in New York City we thought that it would be easy to find a breeder close by. In fact there are few. We contacted many breeders but no one responded to us fast enough. We then looked geographically further away. We wanted a male between 6 months to a year old that was calm, not too energetic and not too chatty. We found “Quietimes” site on the web and saw several kittens that looked like they would fit us perfectly. We emailed the web site and within minutes Sue called us back. We gave her our thoughts and she gave us her recommendations. We called her back several times with a myriad of questions about the cat we were thinking of and each question was answered thoroughly and calmly. By the following hour we had our Fold. His name was JoeJoe. Our 7 month old kitten had his arrival date set and we were waiting. Sue called us and said the weather was getting cold and would we mind if JoeJoe came a bit sooner. We wanted to be as caring as Sue. When we finally brought him to the car he was so small with huge amber eyes folded ears and the color of an orange creamcicle. No hissing, biting or clawing. When we got him home it took him several days to relax as he must have been scared. He did not like being picked up and would dart away and hide in spaces I didn't think he could get into, really very small and narrow spaces. It was actually pretty amazing to see. Slowly over the next few weeks he has claimed the entire apartment as his own. Once he is in his spot he loves to be pet and stroked. He loves his paws massaged and his belly rubbed and his ears scratched. He is calm when he is being groomed and doesn't flinch when his nails are trimmed. He never sleeps further away than two feet from our bed. He is a quick learner as he in the past month can sit, stand up on his hind legs, shake hands, high five, down, lay on his side and roll over on command. We had a 2 year old over the house last night and the boy had his face directly in our cats face and nothing at all happened not a peep. In all this is a spectacular breed for a calm, stable and even tempered feline pet. Thank you so much Sue the best!! Show | Edit | Destroy
I found Susan Tyler and The Quietime Cattery when I started a search to fill the void left by our beloved Scottish Fold, who had succumbed to cancer at 15 years of age. Like many animal lovers, I had told myself I wouldn't do it again! That lasted less than 4 weeks. Once you have been touched by a Fold, there's no turning back! I hit on Susan's site and was struck by some differences in her cattery. Her kittens, young adult and adult cats were not just a number and a color, they had personal personality descriptions that had a homey feel to them. She knew her cats as individuals! We were looking for an older cat so, I was pleased to see that Quietime had Folds of all ages, not all the places I viewed did. I was taken by a beautiful male straight-eared Fold, named Jake. There was an instant connection and I just knew he was my cat. Then I emailed or called, I don't remember which, and spoke with Susan. Well, by the time the whole process was done from start to finish, I felt like I'd found a friend who I would love to have living next door to me! Susan was open, warm, funny and knowledgeable. She answered every ridiculous question my husband and I had with with patience, courtesy and humor. The most important question Susan answered was one put forth by husband Bob. He said "Jake is four years old, does he have a cattery friend?" Without missing a beat Susan responded "Ohhhh. That would be Mr. Google!" The rest is history, since we felt we couldn't separate lifetime friends, Jake and Mr. Google made the flight from Montana to Minnesota! It's been about 6 weeks now since they joined our family and we couldn't be more pleased. They arrived looking so bewildered and lost in their travel crates with their kitty blankets! We noticed immediately that they had manners! They used their claws appropriately and their litter box use was meticulous! Initially they even stayed off the furniture! That has since changed as we encourage them to sit and sleep with us! Since they are older, there was a period of adjustment, but now they are running our household like great Scottish Folds should! Our experience with Susan and Quietime was professional, thorough and wonderful. Her cats are stunning! Thanks to her we have healthy, sweet, funny and loving companions to enjoy life with!
Susan, I am so in love with little philbert. His personality and mine fit perfectly together and we can't leave each others side already he tried to sleep on my face last night though, so I don't think he's going to be in bed with us at night! He is such a happy boy and even after being neutered and having a long flight, he was very playful during the day and cuddly at night and in the morning. He's sweet to Eric as well, although we can both tell he is a ladies man. I took videos of him on my phone and then he would watch them and nuzzle my phone. His current favorite spot is a chair next to a mirror where he can see himself. I think he knows how cute he is. Thank you so much for giving us this sweetheart! We couldn't be any happier and I've never had a cat but so far you have definitely converted me from a dog lover into a cat lover. Have a good day!
We got Jackie, the best edition to the family we could have asked for, from Sue’s Quietime Cattery. Sue handled everything for us, start to finish, to get Jackie from Montana to our home in Massachusetts. Our experience with Sue and her Quietime Cattery was the most professional encounter we have ever had. Little Jackie is just a loving cuddle bug. She sleeps with my mother every night… those two are inseparable! When we first got " Jackie Q ", we expected that our three male cats would give their new little sister a hard time. However, this was not the case at all. Tiny little Jackie let them know that she was in charge immediately. She has the best personality, and she does things to make us all laugh daily. To Jackie, any miscellaneous item around the house is either a toy or her own personal chair. She’s beautiful inside and out and she knows it! But as much of a princess as she is, she’s always there to snuggle up and watch TV with the family. We love her endlessly, and she has become a big part of our family.
Tipste is here, in the car looking around, very curious. He has been to his water and food, but not sure if he will use his ltter pan before we start driving home. The photos Stefanny took of Tipster once he arrived to her home in Canada showed that he wanted to see everything and was loving the view out her windows of the new world there that was greeting him.
Your popcorn cat is still quite the jumper, but his all time favorite game is fetch. He'll bring a ball over and stare and mew at you if you don't notice, and he'll bring it right back once thrown for a good 30-40 minutes at a time! It's adorable. He's very much a cuddles and a lap cat, and sleeps curled up flush on my right side every single night. Besides fetch, his favorite thing in the entire world is belly rubs. I swear he spends more time on his bag spread eagle than anything else! He's the happiest, sweetest boy in the world!
Hi Susan: Just wanted to give you a quick update on Tyler. Arthur has found a new outlet for spending money - toys for Tyler. My kitchen and Great Room now look like war zones - there are toys everywhere. Years ago, when we first got our beloved Sneakers who has now passed over, I bought a play house for him with stairs and an opening at the top for him to crawl out of to look out the window and it also acted as a scratcher. He rarely, if ever, used it and I have had it sitting in the garage all these years. I brought it out when we got Tyler and I can't tell you how much pleasure he gets out of it. He is soooo strong. He jumps up and hangs on with one paw and then pulls himself up - he is in and out of it - sleeps in it, and stores all his toys in there. When he races across the rooms from kitchen to Great Room, it sound like a thundering herd of horses. And I still can't get over the fact that he absolutely has to be where we are. If I am in the utility room and sewing, he sits on the table and watches me or stares out the window. If I am not home and Arthur is in the den, he curls up in the chair just to be near him. And Arthur says that he is amazed at the bond that Tyler has with me. When he hears the car pull into the garage, he runs for the door and sits there and cries until I come in. I can't go two feet without him wrapping his legs around mine and begs to be picked up. I would have expected this as a kitten, but he is almost 7 months old (still kitten, I guess) and he is still doing this. Well, that's it for now. Hope all is well with you. Are you expecting any new litters? Would love to see some pictures. We have several favorite photos, but this one seemed to show him best. I forgot to mention that when Tyler wants to play (his decision not ours), he carries his feathered wand in his teeth and drops it at our feet as if to say, "let's go mom. I want to play." I have never known a cat who will spend at least 20 minutes in a throw and fetch mode. He seems tireless. Of course, after 20 minutes of running back and forth, he is ready to crash. Sleeping in the sun at the base of his play house, other than on our laps, seems to be his favorite. Love Gloria and Arthur P.S. At the moment he is asleep at my feet on the rug in the den. He is never more than a few feet from either one of us at any point in time.
After loosing one of my girls in May of 2013, I began working with Susan Tyler to find another fold that met my criteria. Female with folded ears. All the other stuff like sweet, lovable and enjoys human contact was a given as you know, if you have ever had a Scottish Fold. And so the wait began. Quietime Cattery had brought me my 2 previous folded sisters about 16 years ago. One was now gone and the second, Emma is still with me. Susan Tyler, the new owner, or new to me, as the operation transferred ownership some years ago, worked with me for several months hoping to deliver my wish for a folded ear little girl. And so finally Leela was born. There was really no choice as she was the only kitten to fit my criteria. When Susan sent pictures of this little girl, I knew immediately she was for me. I could see it in her eyes. To this day, I still cannot figure out how Susan could capture such posed pictures of this playful little kitten that once she arrived, I realized could not sit still for a series of pictures like those Susan sent! Leela arrived this past May from her long flight from Montana, including a connection. She was sent in a big cozy crate fitted with a fluffy rug, the sweetest little print blanket, a simple handmade toy to entertain her and enough food and water to satisfy her needs. We picked her up at the airport and started our 2 hour trek home. Leela was only 12 weeks old then, but she was calm and confident and purred all the way home as if the journey didn't faze her. A well adjusted little one, that had been given plenty of love and attention by Susan and her husband Mike. It really shows. Leela is now 8 1/2 months old. She is sweet, loving, playful, caring of her older sister Emma, loves being held or cuddled and is a strong healthy little girl. I keep Susan up to date with the latest as it is obvious she loves her babies, has cared greatly for them and is truly interested in how they are doing. And oh, by the way, Susan keeps me posted with pics of all the new little folds, as someday in the not too distant future I will be getting a new sister for Leela from her again. It has been a warm and truly wonderful experience working with Susan Tyler. She is professional, down to earth and truly understands her babies. She helped me transition through the fear I had, bringing a new kitten into a family that was still hurting from the loss of a beloved pet and gave me hope during my elderly cats acceptance period of Leela. For Leela and all you have done Susan, thank you. Sincerely, Roxine Brown
Dear Susan, We are so happy to have Wesley join our family. He is such a handsome, incredibly loving, well-behaved, and well-adjusted Scottish Fold! The last 3 traits are a testament of how well you raised him. It was a long 10 month wait since we decided to quarantine him in Montana instead of here in Hawaii, but you made everything so easy for us. You were so wonderful about sending us photos, keeping us updated, and telling us such descriptive, funny stories about our boy while we waited out his quarantine. It’s like we were there. If anyone ever worries about quarantine or long flights to a new family, tell them to contact us. We are proof positive that you know exactly what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and that you go over and beyond making sure a new kitten leaves and arrives in perfect condition. Little things like making sure all relevant flight staff know there’s a kitten on board, including a bag of his kitten food he was used to eating in Montana to ease the transition, wrapping his bedding in the softest blanket (which he was able to hide under during his long flight to Hawaii – making the trip less stressful), and even including his favorite toy from Montana in his carrier with him! We could tell he came through really well (which could have been a traumatic event – it was a 21 hour journey to Hawaii), because of how well he adjusted after getting here. Within 45 minutes of getting to our house he ventured out of his carrier. Within an hour & a half he felt confident enough to lay out in the open in our hallway, eat, drink, and use his litter box. Within 3 hours, he was taking nap with our teenage daughter (his head resting trustingly in her hand). All of that shows how well you raised Wesley – he was confident once he felt the good/safe vibes coming from his new family & home. We were worried about what type of personality he would have, but he is so incredibly social, loving and well-behaved. He’s also extremely smart just like you mentioned. We want to send you a huge “MAHALO” for all that you’ve done for us/Wesley. Love, Wesley & family
