5. Look cute (sometimes it helps keep me out of trouble!)
6. Monitor all bathroom activities.
7. Help Mom with everything.
8. Annoy my big brothers (usually Mickey).
(Sorry - had to add a few extras - I like lots of things!)


1. Asleep in my Morgan's bed.
2. Sitting on Mom's lap.

4. On top of the kitchen cabinets - it's a great view up there!

Mom found my stash!

Mom was looking for the lavender oil and wondering where some of my toys went. A friend suggested she take out the drawer of the stove to look under the stove... sure enough, I had batted the little bottle of lavender oil under there along with several toys - including my favorite little bear my breeder sent with me when I was a kitten. I gotta go play now that Mom found my toys for me!


My First CFA Cat Show

Well, Mom took me to the Titletown Cat Fanciers CFA cat show this past weekend April 12-13 in Green Bay, WI. It was a small show, about 111 entries. We had an April snow storm too so that probably explained why there were several "absents". I did pretty well for my first show - I got 8 Winner's Ribbons and am now a Premier. There were no other European Burmese competing in Premiership though. I also made one final, which Mom was told is unusal for a first show when you are competing as an Open, and got a 10th place rosette in Shorthair Specialty. The judge said I had beautiful eyes, a nice coat, and am very muscular. There was another judge too that was very nice and spent a little extra time with me talking to me and when she'd blink at me I'd blink back at her - she said I just needed a little reassurance!

However, I was NOT too thrilled about the whole show experience! I did alot of nervous meowing and even some growling. In the benching area I just wanted to hide under my blanket (guess Mom named me right!). I wouldn't use the litter box, eat, or drink either til we got to the hotel. I was fine at the hotel though! The breeder who was showing Mom the ropes had some lavender which seemed to help - I behaved a little better the second day. She also tried giving me some treats, but I just sniffed them. I wouldn't play with the judge's toys. I wouldn't play in the benching area either - just looked at the toys.

Anyway, I am very happy to be home! Mom says we'll try one or two more shows and if I still hate it I can stay home then. She got me as a pet and just thought we'd try showing for fun. She's still proud of me and wouldn't trade me for anything.

late note - "official" show count was 94


Found the toilet paper!

In some of my previous diary entries, I've mentioned I have a bit of an obcession with paper, especially toilet paper. Mom has to hide the toilet paper from me because I can't resist shredding it - it's so much fun! I finally found out where she hides it - the cabinet under the bathroom sink - and figured out how to open the cabinet! Mom found a bit of a mess when she was looking for a new roll! Mom says she may have to relocate the toilet paper now...


Paper Obsession

Well I attacked and shredded two tripple rolls of toilet paper last week - Mom said she thought it snowed in the bathroom! I just can't help it - it's so much fun to attack and shred. Mom is now keeping all the toilet paper safely hidden from me under the bathroom sink...


Paper Towels and Friend Bunny

Well, I found another roll of paper towels to attack last night on the dining room table. Mom and Dad found the shredded remains of the paper towels on the floor this morning - and it was a new roll so lots to shred! Dad is calling me Shreddy Krueger now! I also shredded a roll of toilet paper last week. Mom's worried that this is becoming an obsession.

I also have a new friend, a bunny that hangs around the house and checks under my bird feeders for food. He's cute and I love to watch him and talk to him. If Mom or Dad get too close to the window he takes off though. He doesn't mind me, he's my friend and I could watch him and talk to him all day.


My latest trick

Mom caught me up on the living room curtain rods twice now. Today she managed to get a few pictures and posted them on my page. Mom's pretty sure I jump up there off the back of the couch - quite the leap! She's not sure what I find so interesting up there and is hoping she doesn't find the curtain rods and curtains on the floor someday. Mom joked she should have named me Dennis the Menace after all my antics!


More Antics

Well, I found some more mischief! I like to jump on top of Mom 's big 44 gallon aquarium and I finally got the fish food that Mom left on top. Mom and Dad found the open container of fish food in front of the aquarium this morning complete with tooth marks! Hey - I tried to act innocent but Mom and Dad didn't buy it. Mom spent the morning vacuuming what was left of the fish food out of the carpet. Sorry Mom - it was yummy though! Mom and Dad still can't figure out how I unscrewed the cap!

Mom also didn't seem to think it was very cute when I jumped into the fridge (freezer on bottom model) tonight when she was trying to get something to drink after work. What's with these people? Why do they keep the most tempting food so inaccessible?

Oh, Mom also found one of her hair ties on the stairs. I couldn't resist. Isn't it strange that she uses a great cat toy to tie her hair back and then doesn't like me playing with it?


More Mischief...

Last night I stole Dad's stuffed toy dog off of his computer desk. It took Mom and Dad all day to find him! They have now hidden him away in a secret place so I can't steal him to play with again. Eventually I think I'll find him. I retailated by attacking and shredding a roll of paper towels Mom left on the kitchen counter after they went to bed. Mom found the mess this morning when she got up. That should teach them to spoil my fun.
