Java is a Snowshoe Siamese.  His Mom adopted him from Texas Siamese Rescue last October.  They recently moved into a really cool building in downtown Dallas.  It is an old department store converted into apartments.  Java and his Mom live several stories up in a loft apartment with really tall windows for Java to look out.  He loves watching the pigeons who land on the window ledges.  Java has lots of fun opening the cabinets and sitting in them.  He also loves to sit in any kind of bag he finds.  He is very good to his Mom.  He makes sure that she isn't late to work by making sure she gets up if she hits the snooze button on the alarm.  He has mastered boob-walking and bladder sitting and the "get up now" stare.  Java loves to be petted and will do all sorts of things to get the attention he so richly deserves.  He will give his Mom hugs, or show off his cute tummy, or work his way under his Mom's arm and hand.  Java sometimes runs out the door, but he gets so interested in the smells coming from other apartments or the carpet on the stairs, which must be attacked, that his Mom has no trouble catching him again.  Java has lots of fun toys to play with and enjoys whapping things, especially edible things, off the tables and counters.  He also likes to whap the shower curtains.  The most amazing thing about Java is that he is a Meezer who doesn't meeze.  He rarely meows at all.  He does a silent meow sometimes, that his Mom finds amusing.  He once mao'ed three times in one week, which was a lot for him.

                                Java is a Meezer who doesn't meow.
                                It's not because he doesn't know how.
                                       Most meows are silent,
                                       But at times he'll relent
                                And give his Mom a hearty MAO!

Those are some interesting things about Java. He certainly sounds like he has a lot of fun.

My Siamese Snowshoe is not really silent. He talks when he wants something -- which is usually because he wants the patio windows open-- We got him when he was three so he has taken a while to become more communicative. He's now seven. He used to just sit and wait for us to feed him but now, when it is time, he will ask. He even came up stairs to get me out of bed the other morning because the birds were making such a racket and I was late getting up. My husband had fed him, so all he wanted to do was show me the birds.He absolutely loves it when I join him at birdwatching and talk to him about the birds. Then he joins in with little faint mews. Watching the birds is his TV!!
