New Year’s Eve – humans celebrate the end of one year and the start of the next. So many celebrations all together huh?? Well, here’s one more to celebrate………..GUESS WHOSE TWELFTH BIRTHDAY IS NEW YEARS DAY????
Yeah, I know…..I don’t look my age – right? I still look like a mere kitten and I owe it all to my cushy life with my parents. I’ve only had a couple of minor scuffles with other cats in my time – so never been in a real “cat fight” to speak of. So I’m not missing any bits of ear or parts of my tail, and no scars on my handsome ginger face either…..so I’m not too “WORN” looking for twelve.
Truth be told, my parents don’t really know exactly WHEN my birthday was. When they went to the animal shelter in February, 2000 to adopt a cat the shelter people couldn’t say exactly how old I was at the time. I was tiny though. They thought maybe around Christmas time I could have been born because they figured me to be about six weeks old. Who knows?! The important thing is I charmed my parents into taking me home with them – THEY decided my birthday might have been some time around January first so I became their NEW YEARS BABY!
I’m one lucky boy. Spoiled? I know I say I’m one spoiled cat and maybe in a lot of ways I am. I sure have a nice house, lots of toys, plenty of food, and parents who totally love me and protect me. If that’s spoiled then count me in!!
So – you’re all invited to my *birthday party* on New Years Day….OK?
