I Am Five!


Today is my Birthday! I am five years old! Whoo Hoo!

Five years old is a pretty big accomplishment for me, since I almost went to the Bridge before I was five months old! I've had an amazing life for a little tuxie who grew up in the streets of New Haven, Connecticat.

I got hitted by a car, got rescued, got famous, got fixed, and got a forever home! That was just the beginning! Then I got a blog, and I got friends around the world, a big brother and sister (Gizzy and Jasmine, who are both at The Bridge now), and I got a terrific Mom, who I have trained very well.

That would have been seriously cool enough, but it doesn't stop there! I got an awesome ManCat of my very own (my dear Monty Q), and an extended family in Mary-land. I have sticky little people! KidBean, SweetBean and Mooshie! (ok, they're Monty's and not really mine, but they are, sorta. I even have my own special Angel, my Violette.

And Friends! Oh. My. Bast! Do I have the best friends in the world? You betcha! Every day Mom says a prayer of thanks for all of you, who have made my life (and hers) so wonderful and exciting. I am sending each and every one of you a smoochie and a headbutt.

(Don't tell Mom, though! She thinks I am a Diva and too aloof for that sentimental stuff. It's to be expected, after all. She's a Human Bean. It's not her fault she wasn't born a superior species.)

Happy Birthday to Me!



Island Cats, Derby, sorry guys. That pile of snow is still on the ground outside. You won't win the When When Contest. Soon, I hope...

Happy Birthday Millie! You're a walking, purring miracle! And I'm so happy you have a man cat, too. I have a kitty who just turned 5 y.o. in February. I hope you have many more happy years!


For other folks (all of you kitties and doggies are certainly people!) reading this, check out my blog. I manage a homeless cat colony and a few foster cats. Get your ‘beans to check it out!
Hey, wonderful creatures stay well!

Happy happy birthday Millie. It's been a wonderful life so far - long may it continue.

I think you've still got quite a lot of work to do in the mom-training department, but that probably says more about her than it does about you.

Don't forget to change the sidebar on your blog, will you - 'cos right now it's still saying that you're 4.
