Boris was purchased for $750 on 5-26-93 from Tom Kavan who owned a MN fur farm. On this same day Carole also purchased (or as she tells it, 'rescued') 56 bobcat kittens for about $160 each, most of whom were quickly sold with a couple of exceptions such as Raindance who was used as a breeder and Little Dove who was bought for $160 and sold for $900 (even though Carole says she did not make a profit selling the kittens) and sold again for $2200 before winding up back at BCR...
