Shawnee plans to have a show and breeding career, as well as a vocation as "princess."  She has begun both effectively, earning praise at her first FiFe kitten show for her lovely type and beautiful presentation, and learning quickly how to boss her housemates about!  She also keeps "Mom" Sinikka attentive by nipping her fingers in the early morning to announce a wake-up/feed-me call!  "Vilma" delivered her first at the end of April 2006--three beautiful babies--and like her parents, she proved to be an excellent mother!  All three beautiful babies are now in happy homes. She earned her European Championship in 2006.  Her son took a Best in Variety and 
Second Best in Show in Finland!  She delivered her second litter of five in November 2007, one of whom, a black smoke boy, Carlos, will reside with the family.
"Vilma" sadly crossed the Rainbow Bridge on May 31, 2012.
