They Say It’s My Birthday

7 05 2012

According to legend, I was (probably)  born sometime in May (probably) in the year 2002.  That will make me 10 years old this year.  Quite the milestone, eh?  At our house, my birthday is always celebrated on Mother’s Day — a nice idea, though a bit sentimental, don’t you think?

If I could be granted one wish for my birthday, it would be that all animals could be free to live their lives, and never go hungry, and never be abused in any way.  And that they could know love.  If only wishing could make it so!

Of course I wouldn’t be a cat if I didn’t also want something for myself.  I was thinking it might be quite nice to have my own garçonnière (like the one below) where I could go to take my naps and think deep thoughts, and mostly get away from Mitski.


Most likely, however, I’ll probably just get more stupid cat toys like these:


But I also know I’ll be getting lots of love.  And that’s what’s really important.  Who needs a garçonnière, anyway?

Happy 10th birthday, Gary.
I really hope you get your wish – it’s pretty much the same as what I wish, too. Stay gorgeous. Matt

This is Oreo somehow it posted under my Dads name. Stupid since I am the one here typing while he is sounds asleep.

Hi Oreo! Sometimes I wish humans slept as much as cats do so we could get more computer time!

Because I know they will be given with love, I’ll even enjoy the stupid cat toys!

To my most handsome Gary,
While I wished you happy birthday via twitter, I have not had a chance to get on the interwebs to visit your post (these exams I’m studying for have rudely interrupted my blog reading over the last few months).
Ten is a very important birthday, and I hope you did have a wonderful day!
I love your birthday wish for the animals, I wish it could be so too!
Maybe one day I will be able to bring you a stupid cat toy!
Until then, I shall periodically remind Robin on Twitter that you would like a garçonnière.
Love Susa

Thank you Susan. I appreciate your kind thoughts. I would like to meet you one day, even if you bring me a stupid cat toy. Good luck with your exams! xo Gary
