Your show this past weekend was amazing. It's wonderful to see how much your cats love you and vice versa. Thank you so much for a truly wonderful evening.

We've been coming to Key West for the past 9-years, and it wouldn't be a visit without seeing you and your amazing cats. We bought the video last year and my husband (the original cat lover) drove me nuts trying to train our two cats; Cali and Floyd.
My husband once provided you the lighter for the fire hoop, and his receipt of your prized postcard has been framed and has taken the proper viewing place in our home.
We'll see YOU and your kitties next year.

I wanted to write and tell you how enjoyable your cat show was! It is amazing how well they listen! My cat is very stubborn! This was my first time to Key West and your show was the best on Mallory Square! I look forward to seeing it again when I am down there again! Keep up the great shows! If you are ever in Indiana let me know! And if you have any tips on cat training I would love to know! Thanks again it was wonderful!

Thank you for many entertaining evenings during our stay in Key West. While there (almost three weeks)we only missed a few evenings at Mallory, and when there always stopped by to see Sharky, Oscar, Piggy, Cossette, Sara -- and of course "ME - Dominique".
The things you manage to convince the cats to do are incredible and must take infinite patience, but the greatest part of the show is your skill as a clown and a genuine nice guy.
Contrary to someone's earlier comment, We think you have a great web site. I'm really looking forward to the book, and want an autographed copy when it is available. I hope it is out before Christmas, it will make a good gift for some cat loving friends.
A few of my photos came out reasonably well. I'll send them as an attachment to a separate e-mail, and will send hard copies to the address shown.
Thank you for hours of entertainment Dominique, and as you are obviously aware, "Dogs rent, cat's own".

SharkEE! at sunset. Patience and love, take your time. Tightrope. Fire. CATS!
Love from Lauren, Nicholas, and Miranda.
dear dominique, we saw you in key west in February. You are amazing and we still talk about you!! Everyone loves the way you say, "Shark -EEE". We now use your words, "hurry up, take your time" whenever we feel rushed. Love, Lauren, Nicholas, and Miranda.
what you need anew website
I think you are great. My younger sisters would drag us to every show while we were on vacation until we memorized all of your phrases. It must be hard to train cats to do much of anything. I know mine in stubborn as can be. Alisha Roznowski Cheboygan, MI
I've been to Key West twice in the past 5 years and I wouldn't miss the Cat Man and his cats. I love cats and have 3 of my own. This act is first rate. The cats are very talented and beautiful and their trainer is the best. Hope to see them on my next visit to Key West. Alaine
Hello Dominique! This is Linda in Orlando. Not sure when I will be back to Key West but most likely sometime before August as I am starting Law School then. What a nice web site. I am sending this site address to Elizabeth at the University of Florida in Gainesville. She is completing her first year and doing so well. What a wonderful daughter she is to me!!!!!
See you soon! Linda Hildebrand.... my email address is Lfrosch99@aol.com
We love your show so much!! We are coming to Key West again in August for our honeymoon! We can't wait to see you again! :)
My wife and I saw the show when we were in Key West in October of 2001. Only one word can really describe it -- amazing!
Hurry up, take your time!

Dominique, We saw you on the beach, however we are really looking for the guy who does happy frogs. That is what we typed in and low and behold there you were. Can you help us out with the Happy Frog guy? Matthew S. Farmer firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Thanks for the variety of cat entertainment. My friend, Monique, Sheri and I enjoyed the shows during February 21 and 22. I shared your interest on returning to the Renaissance Festival in Largo, FL. I was told that your name came up recently in their planning meetings for this years festival. I hope to see you again soon. Your love for cats is so very, very rewarding. Nice web site too. "Hurry up.....Take your time" :)
What a character - what a great show! The best street entertainer I've seen (and to be honest I don't even like cats that much!)...
Keep smiling - and making thousands laugh along with you :)
From your 'assistant' one night last week (thanks for the postcard)..."Hurry up, Take your time"
Nicola & Duncan (Nottingham U.K.) - See you again, hopefully soon!
dominique thanks for making kw a fun place . god bless the ketchup
Dominique, Another great trip to Key West thanks to the beautiful Key West Sunsets, the Beautiful Key West Weather, and DOMINIQUE AND HIS FLYING KITTIES! My wife and I saw your show 3 times in the last couple years and it just keeps getting better! My children are 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 and they absolutely adored you and your cats performance. My son (the younger of the two) was yelling "Kitty!", as they jumped from platform to platform and up and off your chest. My daughter was laughing with gusto everytime the cats were obeying your commands (or were they requests?- Ha ha!) Your show was delightful! It was entertainment at its best! It was funny. It was excellent! The cats were awesome! The tricks were incredible! I can go on forever like this! I had the privelege to buy your video. Matter of fact, I bought two. My kids love to watch it during break time or when they wake up in the morning. Its a happy fun video and the kids love the kitties like they were new friends. Thank you for making Key West special for us. I wish you the best that life has to offer. God Bless you! Sincerely Noel, Trisha, Kaitlyn, and Gavin Westerlind PS. It was nice to see you added some Key West scenery to the video. I can't tell you enough how great that video is and how much my family loves it. Thanks again.
It has been a longtime! Thinking back to the days you did cat shows for Lowe's Kitty Litter!
At the time I worked for CATS Magazine and lived in Daytona Beach. I'm now working for CFA and living in New Jersey.
Will keep in touch, hopefully, we'll be working together again.

I was in Key West in December where I saw your show only the end of your show. I couldn't wait until the next night to see all of it. i almost missed that one too because i could't fine you!! Just by accident did I finally find you. You will never know just how much I enjoyed your show. I have loved cats all of my 58 years. I have three house cats of my own. I hate to leave them when I travel, but I have a great neighbor who loves cats as much as I do who comes in my house and feeds them. She stays longer in the aftrnoon to love them and talks to them for a while. What happened to your two cats that you said just took off? Were you not able to go after them? I think it is just precious the way you got your cats. That is how mky cats came to me also. They just came to our home and the rest is history as they say. I would like to get a hold of the people who put them out to die or get run over!!! I have a long gray haired named Smokey, a long white-haired one named Ella, and finally a black short-haired named Miss Kitty. Sheis around 10 years old and the other two we think are two sisters. They are 3 years old. It is expensive to keep them up ,but I don't regret a penny that I spend on them. It is like haveing three children and they are all three different as day and night. I bet all of yours are all different also right? I really appreciate you giving me the phamphlet with your picture on it with your pretty white and gray cat. It had you web site on it. That is why I'm writing to you. I really enjoyed reading about your daughter and how you were able to educate her through the generosity of the people who have come to enjoy your shows over the years. I was glad to help you out in December an I will be there again in either September , October or December of this year. I made a lot of pictures of your show in December, but they never turned out because they were too dark. My husband said it was already too dark when I started making them. Maybe the next time you can start a little earlier. I wasted about 10-15 pictures. I wanted so badly to show my daughter all about your show, but I was disappinted. All I could do was to tell here about the show. She is 27 and also loves cats as much as her mother does. She has a tortoise shell cat like one of yours. She named or her friend named it Loki after the Norse God of Mischief. The name really fits that cat!!! she is about 5-6 years old. My daughter's name is Allison. She is working on her Master's Degree in Education and will have it a the end of May this year. If I was able I would send you some pictures of my cats over the computer but, my computer is not set up with the right equipment. for pictures. Maybe when I have time I will rond up some pictures an mail them to you. I didn't tell you, but my husband and I used to live in Key West. We moved there in 1965-67. We both taught school. I taught 2nd grade at the Gleen Archer Elemetary School, and He taught 7th grade at Horace O'Bryant Junior High School. We left in 1967 and came back to Lenoir, NC where we both live now. Guess you weren't around Key West during those days. We have been back several times since then to visit friends. We lived on Stock Island during those two years. We noticed on this trip that the homw we lived in then has been torn down!! It was house 17. It was beside Sirco HArdware store. It as also been torn down. Looks like some new buildings have been put in its place. Do you know who built the new buildings and what they are? Well, I guess I have written enought to bore you. When You have time, write a few lines.
Sincerely yours, Kay Pennell
Dominique - Used to love seeing you and the cats at Mallory Square on my trips to KW. Now I've bought a house and will soon become a resident (next year), but will be coming down in March to do some landscaping. I hear you now preform at the Pier House? I want to bring my boyfriends little girl who loves all my cats and will love seeing yours. Thanks to you, my cats too have learned tricks! And they had me trained for so many years that cats don't do tricks! Please give me details on how to see your show! Thanks! Christie email@example.com
I love your show and just got back on 1/25 from Key West, where I saw it for the third time. I've put up several pictures on my website from your show. You can find them at:
(I took them from two different nights so there are some on the 1st and 3rd pages of the photo album.)
i am the one who was with a green t-shirt a week ago in key west and i talked two minutes with you while you were walking with all your things after the show. your show is excellent. i am from argentina, i said you that if i can compare you with one man, it would be with diego capuzoto, one absurd humorist from my country. the people who really understand your shows, will know that the most important thing of your show is you, no the cats. because, you are an unique absurd humorist, one of the best in the world. you have a personal style that is amazing.
please answer me, firstname.lastname@example.org
I came to kw 17 years ago and enjoyed your show. Next time i come down i`ll buy you a french bread for the enjoyment you give to my girlfriend who is a big girl. Thanks.

Dominique.. You probably won't remember me but I assisted you in one of your cat shows recently. We were the people whos camera delayed. Anyway, I would like to send you a picture of our cats. My email address is NikkiGyrl@aol.com. Email me if you are interested.
me and my husband george visited key west last week and we where very impressed by the cat show and the frenchman. we couldn`t believe how he could hold that fire hoop with such style while the pussies jumped in it. dominic you really are the best act in key west after bible bill. we love him more than you cause after seeing bible bill ,we joined his religion. steve.
We love you and your act...just got back from our third visit in the last seven years...... and once again are acting out your act at home...... "I looked at her..... she looked at me..... and we fell in loooove...... :-) " Thank you so much for the joy you bring to the world!! We love your vidoe too!! Thanks again.... Suzanne Trunck
Best Cat Show of all time. Can tell how much kittys love their daddy. Highly recommended if you can get to Key West. Will not be disappointed. Get all his stuff. Proceeds go to humane organizations for cats. Dominique is crazy for his cats, as they from him. If you can't get to key west to see him live....order the video. Can't wait to get back to see him again
Dear Sir, Your cats kick ass!!! Love, Persons
Cat Man!!! I can't believe I found you. Coming back to the keys in March 2002.
I just returned from my first visit to Key West. My mom had told a small bit about the Catman so it was the first thing I went to see once I got to Key West. (The last was seeing all the kitties at Earnest Hemingway's Estate) I was just amazed at the way the kitties are willing to work for you. I got the video and watched it twice as soon as I got home and am still amazed. I do hope to make it back to Key West, if for no other reason, just to see the kitties again. The Flying Cat Show was definitly the biggest highlight of the weekend and I can clearly see that my kitty, Oliver, has a lot of work ahead of him! (Unfortunately we seem to be stuck on come'ere!)

Saw your show last night. It was great! Our daughter-in-law's father watched you years ago and said it was a must see performance, HE WAS RIGHT! Alright I am behind the line even here in Fort Myers. Thanks you are a great showman. David
Dominique - We caught 2 shows/2nights while we were in KW for New Years. I have told everyone back home about you and your amazing cats. We are planning a big group trip this year, and will be sure to catch your act! My friends could not believe the video! Thank you for the gift of entertainment you give, and helping to change the minds of people who think cats are worthless (imagine!). Give Chopin a big kiss for me!
