I have had a lifelong passion for all animals but especially for horses, dogs and cats. There have been only very short periods in my life when I didn't have a dog, cat or horses.  I am now retired after having a career in real estate finance and property management.  You can learn more about me from my old professional website: http://mariasaid.com/


I started showing my quarter horses as a kid in Oklahoma.  As a teen, I started breeding and showing Dobermans.  I have bred Siamese, Himalayan, Persian and Ragdoll kittens over 40 years, off and on.  You can see the caliber of my breeding on my old, ragdoll website:   http://rianneragdolls.tripod.com/  During the 1980's and early 1990's, I bred registered arabian show horses.  That was before I knew much making websites but I've included a few photos of some of my Arabians.  


After my retirement in 2014, I purchased a male Malshi puppy as a companion to my Papillon, Savannah.  He turned out to be such a wonderful, well mannered dog that I decided to start breeding 2nd generation Malshi puppies.  My breeding philosophy  is that dog should be dogs so I only breed my females 2 or 3 times and then I neuter and retire them.   All of my breeding girls  have been spayed and given to my friends.   


I've been asked how I can up with the cattery name of Gigi.  Gigi is my new "grandma name".  My daughter and her husband had a beautiful baby boy in September 2018.  My maiden name is Gruner so Gigi stands for Grandma Gruner.


 I hope you enjoy looking at the photos of my cats, dogs and horses.  Animals have enriched my life beyond description.  I welcome your emails and phone calls if you have any questions or need more information on my British Shorthair kittens.​
