Iris is still just a baby girl. She is about 10 months old. Iris is a purebred Siamese and was adopted from a cattery by a family who soon found out that they were just too allergic to her to keep her and took her to the no-kill shelter where Mama Laura was helping out. Iris soon made it very clear to Mama Laura that she wanted Mama Laura to be her Mama. Iris came home with Mama Laura in November 2006 to live with Mu Shue Pooh King Cat and Lilly Lu. More than even Chicken Temptations, Iris loves to play. Well, she loves to pounce Mu Shue to make him move out of his sun chair so she can nap there, but she usually gets into minor trouble for that. Since Mu Shue doesn't want to play with her and Lilly Lu doesn't always want to play when Iris does, Iris plays with her toys. Unfortunately, the toys have the annoying habit of ending up under the couch where Iris can't get to them. There they stay until Mama Laura fishes them out again. As tiny as she is, Iris has a yowl that can be heard all over the house and, possibly, down the street.

                                        Iris's toys hide under the couch.
                                        It's enough to make her grouch.
                                               "Come out and play!"
                                               She likes to say,
                                        But the toys stay stubbornly under the couch.
