Lucky Number Thirteen. . .
Saturday was CATURDAY at our house. It was the day we celebrated Sunshine the Cat's THIRTEENTH birthday. Can you believe how good she looks for being a geriatric pet? She really looks just like she did when she was THREE. She does have some issues - like her back hip is stiff and so she cannot jump as high as she used to. She uses a chair to get to her meal. Mommys serve it on the shoji screen cabinet because that way some DOG n PUG do not eat it for her.
She got all kinds of special treatment for her birthday. Molly and I let her sleep on any dog bed she chose and she chose ALL OF THEM. Whenever I headed to one, she would come quickly trotting from behind me to nab it for herself. I ended up napping outside on the patio because Sunshine the Cat is NOT allowed to go OUTSIDE.
She also got a special meal of all WET FOOD which none of us ever get. She totally played that up in our faces too - sitting on the shoji screen carefully licking her chops clean, meticulously licking her paws, repeatedly licking her bowl long after the food was gone. Oh - she was DIGGING it.
Overall, I am very proud of Sunshine for maintaining her health and happiness; because when all is said and done - those are the keys to a long life.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUNSHINE
