Today was a special day for The Cat: Her birthday!

She got a little taste of bacon at breakfast, and the bacon provided decent fuel for a nap marathon all afternoon.  One of the naps involved snuggling with me on the sofa as I read.  Right now, she's asleep under my chair.  I'm sure she's resting up for my Monday 5 a.m. wake-up call.

When it comes down to it, honestly I am surprised she is still here and still doing pretty well considering her ailments.  We take it a day at a time, and some days are better than others--but overall, most days are pretty good.

So here's a little tribute to our fluffy girl as illustrated by the past year.

She sleeps where she likes.

She also has taken to sitting like The Sphinx lately.
She's not that into playing games

One night, she climbed into the stereo cabinet just to avoid "poker."

She makes friends with neighbors (and messes with dogs).
Stalking the chipmunk who hangs around our patio
is also a frequent hobby.

She still can vault herself up to the top of the kitchen cabinets for an all-out, sprawled-out snooze.

She's just a wonderful, furry, feline friend!

Happy birthday, fuzzy! Hope your whole day was great. (I would go on, but with Carlos draped over my arm even this much is a challenge.)
Kate P said…
S.D.--Oh, yes, she did enjoy her bacon. Very much! :)

CCR--She did have a very good day, which concluded very late with a game of "ballpoint pen hockey." On my bed. Hee.
Carlos is getting his "Vitamin CCR" through osmosis!
