Miss Manners was born in January of 1993. She was rescued from an animal shelter in Atlanta, Georgia in late '93 by Amy Grenier of Osborne Shows, a company who trains animals for television, movies and live performance venues. Amy Grenier was Miss Manners' trainer and Manners was the first cat taught by Osborne Shows to walk the tight rope. She trained for several months, then went to work for the Magic Mountain Theme Parks as the star attraction in the Animal Action Show. She was the acrobat cat - the diva on the tight rope - performing 3-4 shows daily throughout the year. Miss Manners worked at Six Flags over Georgia in Atlanta for 1 year, 1 year at Six Flags over Mid-America in Ohio, 1 year at Six Flags over Texas, outside of Dallas, then for 3 years at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. Miss Manners retired from show business in November of 2001 to live the life of luxury. She resided in the beautiful mountain resort town of Idyllwild, CA from 2001 to 2009, and then in Palm Springs 2009-2010. In 2010 and early 2011, she split her time between Palm Springs and Montrose/Los Angeles, then retired exclusively to Montrose in the spring of 2011. From 2001 until 2010, she traveled extensively - both domestically and internationally. Notably she spent the summer of 2004 living in Orehovy - just outside of Moscow, Russia. She also traveled dozens of times to New York City, one of her very favorite places, staying there several weeks throughout each year from 2005-2009. Miss Manners was treated like a queen every moment of every day of her life. All who met her were blessed by her sweet demeanor and charmed by her unique personality. She is survived by her mom, Denise, and her two sisters, Shakti and Marigold.
