Kool-Kat Kustomer Komments

"We recently took a cruise, and came home with FIVE of your amazing Kool-Kat prints! We anxiously await their arrival. We just love all the detail, the settings, and the great expressions on the kat's faces!"

- Jeff B., Ohio

"My husband and I just came home from a P&O cruise, where we purchased "Feline Family Feast", which we absolutely love! We would now like to extend our collection of your work, being devoted cat lovers, and now new fans of our favorite artist - Don Roth!"

- Rebecca J., Australia

"A little tale of an abandoned cat with striking markings: He was left when people vacated a rented property near us in January, 2006. We were booked on a cruise, but until we left, we fed and tried to tame him, he was a little wild! My husband and I made a pact that if he were still around when we returned from the cruise, that he would join our household. While at sea on the Pacific Sun, we happened to attend an art auction, and lo and behold, there was our "soon-to-be" cat in one of your paintings! Needless to say, we purchased two prints, "Kruiser Kat" and "Surfing Kat". After we returned home, we decided to name our cat "Leo" after reading up about you and your famous cat on your web site. We thank you for your wonderful art works with their playful nature, and attention to detail. "Leo" found us, and we found your "Mr.Leo".

- J. Morrison, New South Whales, Australia
