The Jarretts Jade Cattery !

Among all animals, the cat is possibly the most widely symbolic and leads as the symbol of grace and beauty.  Revered in Egypt, Spiritual in India, Omen of Bad Luck in Folklore. More tales and poetry revolve around cats than perhaps any other animal. Their ability to show complete scorn as well as love and devotion knows no bounds. Cats have a definite intuitive as well as curious nature making them exciting companions. 

Over the years we've had many cats (as well as dogs) and I dedicate my collection to their memory including  Our first, Bitsy, a tiny feral cat that we nursed for over a year before she passed away. She appeared at our door one cold rainy night as if she knew where to come for help.  Smoosie who lived to be 10 in spite of her diabetes and Lumpy a gray persian who overcame so many obstacles and lived to be 18 - passed away last year. We now have 3 - 2 "teenage" brothers (unexpected gifts from our daughter) that keep us on our toes and our golden tabby Slick who came with us from Florida.  He was also a feral cat that we couldn't bear to leave when we moved to WV so we had to trick him into coming with us.  Now he's a big 15 lb lap cat !  

This is my personal collection of cat jewelry items that I have collected over a 40 year period.  Our family has included up to 5 of these wonderful furry friends at one time.  You'll find them pictured along with the jewels in the "museum".... These items are not for sale, but I'm constantly adding to my collection. I hope you enjoy browsing !
