It's My Birthday!

It's March 17 and it's my birthday! Happy Birthday to me! I'm 15 years old today which Daddy says makes me a really old kitty, and I'm definitely the oldest cat I know in this neighbourhood. And Daddy spoiled me this evening with a chicken treat as my birthday present. But since it was my birthday, I decided I could spend my morning any way I wanted, and this was what I wanted: I sat in the sunshine in the living room bay window...

in my own private forest (actually, it's just that old houseplant), and I looked out the window and watched the birdies in the birdfeeder:

And then I took my morning nap:

And then when the sun changed position to the top of the stairs, I followed it for my early afternoon nap:


Then I went exploring in Daddy's office and tried to encourage him to clean up his stuff by rubbing my face all over his boxes:


And to show his gratitude for my helpfulness, Daddy gave me that chicken treat I mentioned. And that's how I spent my birthday. Happy birthday to me!
