Oldie But Goodie!

Hi Everybody!   Did you all know that August is Senior Pet Month?  Did you?  Well I did – and I think you know WHY I did.  I am a senior and proud of it.  Yep – thirteen years old and still hanging in there.  I know lots of cats and dogs who are older than that and still healthy.  We know that has a lot to do with our human companions and how well they take care of us but also sometimes it’s our genes (designer genes of course!).

Anyway, here’s some info from BlogPaws that I thought was super interesting:

I think I live with the perfect human family.  Why?  Well for many reasons but one of them is we are ALL “Seniors” !  That’s right – my parents are both SIXTY FIVE OR OLDER……. 😀 😀 😀 😀 so we’re all hobbling along together taking care of each other forever.

So all of you “Seniors” out there – humans included – let’s celebrate the rest of the month by keeping a smile on our faces and being grateful that we’re still here and lovin’ life!

Now you all know about MY contest – and I hope you plan to enter (CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS), but there’s also a pawsome raffle happening at Mollie’s right now to help out everybody’s friend Benny from Two French Bulldogs.  His medical bills to treat his cancer are HUGE…..every little bit helps……Mom and I bought some tickets yesterday and if you can help, please do by visiting Mollie and Alfie.   We think Benny is very brave.

We're pulling for you Benny!

We’re pulling for you Benny!

 

Back to my contest for a minute – TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO ENTER – tomorrow I’ll have the voting poll up and you’ll get to vote for your favorites in the two categories………..”What I Did On My Summer Vacation” and “I Wanna Be The Teacher’s Pet”……..just wait until you see what some of our bloggy buddies have been up to!!

Happy Thursday Peeps! 

Your Senior Friend, Sammy (FUREVER YOUNG)

      Hi Mollie! I wish we could have bought tons more tickets really……we hope it helps. I’m trying to stay around to keep an eye on my aged parents so I intend to live to be a bazillion years old.

    You are so cool Sammy, you make me want to be senior. And you know what? I am almost there as I am seven next birthday and that is officially senior according to the Felix box!! The human reached her official senior age on Monday, but she’s not remotely cool!! 😉 xox

    Good morning, Sammy!!!!!! Well, I’m not a senior kitty yet, but I’m working on it! My pawrents former kitty, Beezy, lived to be 16, and I bet it was because they loved him so much and took such good care of him!
    “Designer genes, eh”???

    Whee liked reading the bit on that sign about senior guinea piggies. At 7 Nibbles was our oldest boy. Now Nutty, who is nearly 4 is the oldest but he can’t really be considered senior!

    Whee all act like babies all the time and so did Nibbles. Whee think the secret to staying healthy, is pretending to be young!

    Have a great day, whee can’t wait to see the other entries in the contest!

      HA! I hadn’t thought of it that way but I suppose as we get older we DO slow down a bit and make it easier for you pups (and younger cats too!!) to race us around…..

    In cat years, I’m older than my peep. I like it that way even if it does mean I’m a senior. I’ll always be a kitten at heart. And peepers says I’ll always be her baby. MOUSES!

    The good thing about being a senior is you are never too old for love. My mom-in-law just turned 80 and has a new boyfriend. We took her and her pal out for a birthday dinner and they held hands in the back seat 😀 You’re lucky to have each other, hugs to e-furryone of you!
