Cookie was born on November 21, 2010, one week earlier than normal. Her mother had four kittens but three died and she was rescued by Heather. She had to be tubed feed for several days as her mother, Sweetie, lost her milk. Then, she was reared by Namrib Trinity.
Namrib Cuckoo in the Nest went to her first cat show in England, in Kings Heath, Birmingham, on March 19, 2011, where she got 2 excellent 1st and 3 excellent 2nd best kitten awards. She also received the public award (People Choice) of the best cat in the show (on 150 cats) based on her incredible lovable personality.
Cookie arrived from London, UK to Los Angeles on May 10 at 2:50 PM.

Morphology: Cookie has beautiful blue eyes, a nice warm chocolate point milk color, a soft silky middle coat (as all Birman should have - it’s being lost in many lines that used too much Persan to create the new colors - a roman nose, a strong chin, a long tail. She is more the elongated style than the compact one (Fly is the compact style) and reminds more of the siamese size than the Persan.
