It's my Gotcha Day anniversary. I've now been with Mom in my forever home for 4 years. A lot has happened in those 4 years. I'm very happy in my home and look forward to being spoiled and doted on for many more years!

Uh Oh... Mom's been toying with the idea of taking me back out to the cat shows. Currently the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) is the only major association that recognizes my breed, European Burmese. American Cat Fanciers Association (ACFA) is talking about recognizing European Burmese sometime next show season. For some strange reason, the cat show season begins in May and ends in April. Anyway, if ACFA recognizes my breed, Mom is thinking about taking me out to the shows again in ACFA. Mom says it would be very cool if I could title in both associations.

I wasn't very happy left at home while Rider and Oliver went with Mom to the ACFA show. Unfortunately, Rider has not done much at the shows so far either. I guess I could go to some more shows. Mom loves traveling with me too.


vet visit

Mom took me in to the vet yesterday. Apparently there was at least one sick cat at the last show I was at - I have an Upper Respiratory Infection. I started sneezing and got a snotty nose over the weekend - exactly a week after the show. I'm on an antibiotic and lysine paste and hopefully I'll feel better soon.

We also got my professional pictures from the PetCo photo session with The Picture People. Since Mom's computer is still down, it will be a while before they are posted as she'll need to vist a friend or her sister. Oliver also had his pictures taken, but we are still waiting for his pictures.

New CFA Grand Premier DeKattCo's Hurricane Linus! I got the last points I needed for my Grand Premier title last weekend at the CFA cat show in Peoria. I made two finals, got some pretty rosettes, and the last points I needed for my title. My breeders were there to see me Grand too which was really nice. Mom had exchanged lots of emails with them and spoke on the phone a few times, but had never actually met them. We were all very excited that I got my Grand Premier. I might go to one more show in the Twin Cities in 2 weeks, but then I will officially and permanantly "retire".


Another cat show

Mom's done it - she entered both me and Rider in a CFA cat show September 11 in Peoria, IL. My breeder AND Rider's breeder will both be there so it should be a fun show. Mom is really hoping I'll FINALLY get those last elusive 7 points for my Grand Premier title. We'll see what happens... My acne is doing better right now. I'm on antibiotics and Douxo Spot On treatment. I might need a dab of cream powder before I go up to be judged though! Rider will be going to try for his Winner's Ribbons for Premier. We will how it goes.

Mom's computer crashed a few weeks ago, so we have limited computer access.

Mom brought me back to the vet today. Even though I finish my course of antibiotics for my acne infection tomorrow, I still broke out over the 4th of July weekend while on antibiotics and it just won't clear up completely. So, back to the vet I went. Plan C is to try a Douxo Spot On topical treatment which hopefully will help control the excess oil/sebum and help keep surface bacteria down too. One of my breeder's friends also suggested Gold Bond powder to absorb the oil on my chin. We'll see. Mom's about ready to try anything! Mom would love to see me back to my handsome self. Needless to say - no cat shows unless we can get my acne cleared up! I'd be okay with an "early retirement", but I know how much Mom would like me to become a Grand Premier - and I'm only 7 points away from the title!

I'm also getting a new little brother. I didn't ask for one, but there is still a vacancy here and Mom couldn't resist the little guy. Here's his page - Quincy. Mom isn't sure if that will be a final decision for his name yet. He'll be moving in once he's completely weaned.

Mr. Fez and I appear in the Cats USA 2010 annual magazine on page 128 under 2009 Photo Contest Results - we received an honorable mention for "snuggle buddies". Mom had forgotten she'd entered us, and got a pleasant surprise looking through the magazine!
