Yesterday was Sunshine the Cat's 10th BIRTHDAY. Can you believe it? She is 10 years old! She is rather young looking, I think. But she definitely has the lack of tolerance characteristic of an older CAT.
Anyhow, Cousin E made her this "cake" from some special wet FOOD and the put a candle in it. When she lit the candle she kinda scared Sunshine and we had to start all over again once we located the Scairdy Cat.
Okay so this time we MIMED lighting the cake and then everyPUGGY sang Happy Birthday to her. I think I even saw a SMALL tear of joy in her eyes when we finished out COMPLETELY in tune rendition of the song.
In her 10 years, Sunshine has known a lot of changes in our house - she had cousin named Sasha who was 18 when she crossed the Bridge. That is pretty OLD for a cat. She also had a Russian tortoise cousin named Ashley and a Cocatiel named Cowboy. Oh yeah, there were also 3 tanks of fish. But those are all gone. Instead we got Cousin C, also known as Lil' One. She adds a whole 'nother dimension to our family. But that is another STORY.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sunshine. For a sisteroid, you are not HALF BAD.
HAPPY THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Celebrate every year like the first - with excitement and love.
