Your show is amazing. We were in Key West for three nights and made sure to catch each show. It was definately a major highlight of the trip for my family. You can tell that you love your cats just as much as they love you. Keep up the purrrfectly amazing work!

I have just returned from a wonderful trip to KW and I just wanted to let you know how much my fiance and I enjoyed your show. I have always had feline family members....and who knows maybe I can work with my latest "big boy" Floyd and he'll tap dance for me!!!
You are a great entertainer and you have beautiful kitties. I will wear my T-shirt with fond memories. Thank you.

After hearing about the "cat show" for so many years when on business to Key West, it was great to finally see the show and meet you as well as the kitties. It was everything that I had heard about and more. It made my stay in the KEYS from 26 NOV to 4 DEC even more wonderful. Now, wherever I am, when I see the sun set I think fondly of you, your charges, and the Keys. Thanks a lot. Enjoyed the video as well. And like McArthur, I will return.

Awesome show! Caught your act two nights last week (8-Dec-2001 and 9-Dec-2001). Now I just have to find out how to get my cat to do tricks.
wow - I am a cat lover and a dog lover and... two turtles and a parrot... but, you beat all sir with your act that I believe would be awesome to see! I live in central Wisconsin and so the realization of going to Florida to see you is afar... but thank you sooooooooo much for loving your cats - they would not I am sure act as they do without your love!

Having spent a month in Key West in September 2001, we (with my daughter and her god-mother) sat there, puzzled, watching you, so funny, playing with so much affection with all you kitties. Having a lovely burmese she-cat, who is so "plan-plan", I really wonder what magic gift you have to do what you do. It is funny, enlivening, just like yourself, because if she cats make she show, with someone else, it wouldn't be the same. I wish you would develop your fame widely enough so you could come and perform in Europe, in Paris especially, where we (I!!!) would be so happy to come to a show. Maybe one of these days ... Continue bring people joy and touch them with your talent and sense of humour. C'est super, Dominique, on t'adore! Francine Paris, France (9, bis rue de la Véga 75012 PARIS)
This was our favorite experience in Key West. It is impossible to feel gloomy after watching Dominique and his kitties interact with each other under the guise of a "show." We can't wait to come back to Key West. . .our first stop will be to the water at sunset to watch this happy performance. We hope the Hilton keeps Dominique for a long time.

We had the pleasure of seeing your show(s) several evenings during our week in Key West a month ago! We are still yelling out your phrases (in a French accent) - and have looked at your video and the ones we made over an over again (we were excited again!) Our grown kids think we have lost our minds, but they are enjoying hearing all about your kitties, and what a nut you are! Can't wait to find out more about you and the kitties - have you thought about writing a book? We've checked out everything on your website, how about adding the New Times article. We will send an e-mail to you. In the meantime - CLAP CLAP CLAP! You are the BEST!

Greetings & salutations! The "New Times" article brought smiles & memories. We've had the pleasure in KW and Rennaisance Festivals, and still have a postcard you autographed to one of our cats. Great stuff, & looking forward to more. Live long & prosper!
I just read the article about your show in the New Times. I'll have to see your show someday. It amazes me that you can train cats. That must take lots of patience! I can't train my cat to do anything.
HI DOMINIQUE&CATS!!! YOU WERE THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY TRIP TO KEY WEST. WHEN I RETURNED HOME AND PICKED-UP MY CAT IN JENSEN BEACH FLORIDA AT OCEAN BREEZE ANIMAL HOSPITAL I ASKED MY VET DR. ROBERT GRAVES IF HE HAD EVER SEEN YOU. HE HAS A BIG AUTOGRAPHED PICTURE OF YOU IN HIS OFFICE!!!!! I WILL E-MAIL YOU AND I DO WANT TO SEND SOMETHING TO THE CATS. HOPE YOU ARE SAFE AND WELL. JANE_MEAD@FPL.COM
I READ THE ARTICLE ABOUT YOU IN BROWARD/PALM BEACHES "NEW TIMES" PAPER... AND I WOULD LOVE TO COME AND SEE YOUR SHOW! WE ACTUALLY HAVE TRAINED OUR CATS TO DO A COUPLE THINGS, WHICH PUTS A STOP TO PEOPLE SAYING CATS CAN'T DO TRICKS! I CAN'T WAIT TO COME TO KEY WEST TO SEE YOUR SHOW! firstname.lastname@example.org
I love cats and I think it's great what you do. Not just the way you've gotten them to do tricks but the fact that you know how to communicate with them. I would give anything to get into my cat's head!
We saw your show last Friday and loved it! We bought your video and last night we showed it to our four cats. They sat on the bar near our big screen TV and watched a lot of it. However, I haven't been able to get any of them to do the tricks yet. I've tried to get them to jump back and forth between bar stools (on command) but they just won't do it!! You certainly are talented!
Enjoyed your shows a lot - you are certainly a special "cat-daddy"!
Dominique, mon cherie! It's been nearly 8 years since I've seen your act at Mallory Square and to this day I can still hear the shrill in your voice calling out to Piggy to get her to pay attention! HA! Everyone who says they are planning on vacationing in the Keys I tell them to catch your performance and each time they come home saying how grand you still are. One of these days I'll get back down there to see you again. Until then, keep that sun out of your eyes and kitty cuddles to your three new additions! Kelly - Attleboro, Massachusetts
WE LOVED THE SHOW . WE ARE A LITTLE CONCERNED THAT WE HAVE 4 CATS AND THEY HAVE NONE OF THE TALENTS OF YOUR CATS. WHERE HAVE WE GONE WRONG? WE SPENT THE DAYS FOLLOWING YOUR SHOW SAYING HURRY UP TAKE YOUR TIME. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT TIME.A CAT LOVER.
I RECENTLY SAW YOUR SHOW AND THOUGHT IT WAS AMAZING!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

Well, now that you have several new people going to this idiots website and adding to his hits, I think you should know that this site is meant to be a joke. It was put out by a college student as a joke. When the university removed him from their website, he found another host. When he was removed there and was investigated by the SPCA, he moved onto another host and started spewing first ammendment rights and all that. His new host refuses to remove him despite protests. By the way, the investigation into his site by the SPCA found no animals were ever injured in the making of the site. It is all altered photography and graphics. Please DO NOT visit the site and add to his hits and advertising. Unlike a cat, if everyone ignores him, he will eventually go away. Right now he is thriving on negative attention.
www.bonsaikitten.com - this is the cruelest cat abuse on earth, imagine growing kittens in small bottles, just to get the shape, only crazy Japanese do this
I have had the privelidge of attending your performances every summer during family vacation. Unfortunatley this year I was not able to visit the keys and am missing it all very much. Sunsets, conch fritters, but mostly, Piggy, Sharkey and Dominique! I am looking forward to my father bringing one of your vidoes home so I can enjoy your show year round!!! Thanks for all the laughs. Robyn - Cleveland, OH
saw the show on 8/28 -- wonderfully wacky! Liked it, yup! But I'm curious -- did Dominique and cats ever perform for a Renn Faire?
Hello Dominique: My sister and I saw your show this past Sunday night and then again on Monday night. As cat lovers we were instantly amazed and enthralled! The love and affection between you and your fellow furry "purr"formers is wonderful. Thank you for taking the time afterwards to talk to us about your cats and all of the training and preparation your show requires. Also, thanks for allowing us to pet and play with your cats. We truly enjoyed it and look forward to returning to Key West to see you and your cats perform again. Wishing you the best, Barbara
Hello Catman and kitty sidekicks! We saw your show back in November and as winter is soon going to be here in the Northwest, I've been reminiscing about our trip to Key West last fall. Your show and those amazing kitties were one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you for rescuing their little selves and showing the world that cats are truly incredible! Keep up the astounding work!! Kelley P. in Seattle, WA.
Meow Dominique and four legged friends. We LOVED your show. We could see the love between you and all the cats. Any trip to the Keys without seeing you and the cats wouldn't be complete. A friend told us about you before we came down and am so glad we found you. The whole family was entertained and we are all cat lovers. Keep up the great work and showmanship/Meowmanship. Thanks Kelly/Steve/Katlyn
Bonjour Monsieur Catman, Please forgive me for startling you Saturday night when I jumped out from behind your cat cages as you were moving your equipment after the show. Cats & I were communicating in "Cat-man-du" language. I'm the old blonde lady from St. Pete. I'm going back to ballet classes this week so I can apply for the "Vanna White" cat-assistant job, if you ever are hiring. We are going to Paris in October--any travel advice? favorite restaurants? pet shops? circus cat shows? RSVP
Hi!I'm the french girl who came to see you the other night. I love your cats,and I think your so funny and cute.I wish I could have cats like your's.Your free to visite me anytime if you come to N.Y.,Queens Jackson hights.Bye and good luck with your show.
Sincerely Gianna rovelli
Dearest Dominique and feline friends, Your were hilarious. My friends and I saw your acts several times last week. I sure enjoyed the show and admired your training of each of the kitties.
I wish you much good fortune and good health always.
Your fan, Jana
