First Sunset 2012

First Sunset 2012

I had a swell birthday and ended it with a swell sunset!

My big thanks to all of you who wished me a happy birthday yesterday – it was a fun day and we celebrated all day…..lots of treats and naps and until the afternoon when it started raining like crazy, it was a perfect day for a stroll with my Mom through the yard. 

We got a reward though at the end of the day – this pretty sunset!  The sky cleared at the horizon long enough to show us the setting sun.  We usually leave sunset and sunrise pictures to our good friend Dianna because she has the PRETTIEST pictures and view of them, but since yesterday was my birthday we thought she wouldn’t mind!

Several of you were celebrating yesterday as your birthday too so I hope you all had as much fun as I did with my day.  I know that when animals are adopted at shelters sometimes and nobody knows when their birthday REALLY is, they use January 1 as “the day” and that’s sort of why my birthday is January 1st.  I was a shelter baby and because I was a kitten and they could guess pretty well how many weeks old I was, everyone decided I was born some time between Christmas and New Years.   I’m just glad I was there in the shelter when my parents came!!

Happy Monday everybody…’s a holiday here so it will be quiet (although very windy and cold).  I’ll be resting up as much as possible after my day of playing with toys and wrestling with my tissue and newspaper collection.  A guy’s gotta do what a guy’s gotta do!

  1. Sammy, what a great gift: a beautiful sunset for your special day!! My mom says she loves it!!
    Glad you had a good birthday. I know your parents are glad you were at the shelter when they went to adopt a kitty too! Of course, we all know that YOU adopted THEM!
    Have a great Monday -rest up from your busy day!
    Love, Sundae


    • Hi Sundae….I’m glad your Mom approved of the sunset shot. Mom had to stand in a puddle to capture it! Yes I did have a nice birthday but all that partying yesterday and on New Years Eve left me ready to spend today napping away. Of course there’s nothing wrong with that either!!

      Happy Monday to you too
      Love, Sam


    • Well, with all the animals she’s taking care of there’s not a lot of time for much else! 🙂 But yes I had a super birthday and start of the new year and I hope all of you did too!!



  2. I didn’t know Cat,s birthday, and I don’t know Not Cat’s either. I didn’t ascribe one for Cat, but I know the date of his death and shall raise a glass to him then, an similarly I shall raise a glass on the anniversary of adopting Not Cat.


    • Hi Miss Caren….I was one lucky shelter kitten that day in February 2000 that’s for sure. Thanks for the compliments on Mom’s photo of yesterday’s sunset – today’s isn’t pretty – it’s cloudy and icky (and COLD!) out. Oh well….can’t win ’em all right?

      Hugs, Sam


  3. Happy Birthday in afterwards Sam! Hope you had a great birthday and we wish you ALL the best from all of our cats – even though you’re 12 years old you sure more seem like 12 years YOUNG 😉

    Much love, the Trio


    • Hey thanks! It was a great birthday celebration and it was even more fun because it was also New Years Day! Are your Moms back from France yet? Are you all behaving while they’re gone? I bet you’re being VERY good!

      Love, Sammy
