I have a fancy for a gentleman who is Siamese. He's handsome, dark and very mysterioso, with an angular bony aristocratic face and narrow eyes. He just moved in next door, so I've only seen him from the window, but oo la la! If he has seen me, then he will be in love with me, this I know. I am gorgeous, thirteen pounds of fluffy beauty wearing refined white 'gloves'. Birman by birth, I am a royal cat among cats, known as the Sacred Cat of Burma, with a lineage going back to my ancestors, bred as a temple cats in Northern Burma. You could not understand my real name, but my given name is Pearl, and my human is Rose Freemont, the owner of a tearoom, which is a very respectable trade for a lady.
Rose's grand-daughter, Sophie, is not so refined as her Nana, as she calls Rose. Sophie is happy and young and a little noisy, but she cooks divinely. Unfortunately, she has a nickname for me; she calls me Pearly-Girly. I don't like that, but she has some good qualities, so I let it go

Gilda, the chattery frizzy woman who works for the demon-woman next door (Thelma Mae Earnshaw) talks constantly about Sweet Pea. I have heard from her (horrifying!) that there are such things as 'cat shows' where cats are displayed, and his parents were both winners of blue ribbons. Who would want a blue ribbon? I suppose I would, if I could play with it.
So... we shall see. I have yet to examine him, but I'm sure I can persuade Rose to schedule a meeting some time soon. Helloooo Sweet Pea!
