Hello from Meg and Dan Janosik. We’ve been together over 9 years and are passionate about our cats!
My name is Meg and I'm a life-long cat owner. I recall the most "magical" Christmas present I opened as a child was when I was three. It was my first kitten, and it was love at first sight. Looking back, the poor cat probably did not feel the same way toward me. I know I dragged her into many make-believe play activities that she probably resented me for. It wasn't until I was older that I learned the honor of earning a cat's love. Later, during high school and college, I studied photography and psychology. I earned a bachelors degree in psychology from New York University and masters and doctorate degrees in clinical psychology from The University of Indianapolis. Despite my professional goals I never lost my love of cats. My educational pursuits might seem unrelated, but I am actually grateful for these experiences when it comes to running my cattery. For example, I use my photography skills to help take beautiful pictures of my cats, who by the way, have no interest in sitting still! As for my background in psychology, it helps me to understand the developmental and socialization needs of my kittens and to find homes that are a good match for them.
My partner (in life, and in my cattery) is Dan. He comes from a family of cat lovers and is deeply respectful of animals. For example, when we find a spider, Dan always politely escorts it outside. He earned a bachelors in computer science at Miami University in Ohio. His technology skills have been extremely valuable in the setup and management of this website. His dedication to our cats also shows through in his continual help in caring for them on a daily basis. He's the one willing to put a coat over his robe and walk our rescue kitty in the dead of winter because she is begging at the door. He'll risk looking silly in order to keep us all happy and we love him for that.
Learning about the Savannah breed has been a long journey and we are committed to caring for our cats and raising the healthiest, most socialized kittens we can. We’ve enjoyed the friendships we’ve built in the Savannah breeder community as well as the friendships we’ve made with kitten buyers. To us this is less of a business and more of a passion that we share with others while we cherish each of our cats. We are mindful of the overpopulation of cats and regularly donate to charities that support feral cat care (Ally Cat Allies) as well as local no-kill shelters.
