Happy Birthday & Gotcha Day to ME!

You can read my Gotcha Day story on my sidebar if you want. The VET told mommy I was around 2 years old. She said that the years before I was found don't count because my "good life" started that day.

I hope you'll all come over today for my grazing party.The food and booze will be out all day!





Milk & toona cookies for the kittens



Lotsa ham and sides



Bones for my woofie friends!



and Blue Toona Gizzy's for the grown kitties



We can take Joel's stroller out for walks if you want!



There are plenty of sunbeams today for napping in.



All four of my nip plants grew back and are ready for nomming!

I'm seven years old today! The VET said cause of my FIV (I had it when I was rescued)I would only be around for "a few years" but I'm still going strong. I'm a little concerned that since I'm seven years old, I'll start itching. Have any of you had that problem?

Enjoy the food and company!

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY PURRFDAY!!!!!! what a wonderful party!

Sparkle said...

Happy birthday Hendrix! You really know how to put out a spread.

Funny thing, I am 7 years old and I itch a lot! My human thinks it a combination of the weather and the fact that I insist on eating less than high-quality cat food. But now I know it's being 7 years, so maybe she will stop trying to give me the bland, grain-free food.

Oh Hendrix! Happy Birthday. Just remember that my best buddy and mentor Jonathan ::bows head in respect:: lived to be 20+ years old and it took FIV that long to catch up with him. So my piece of birthday advice is to stay healthy, eat right and prove that silly v-e-t wrong!

Heading off to eat the goodies and drink some of the booze!

Hansel said...

Hendrix! hi ! what a great party!! thanks for having us all. Hey, we didn't know you had FIV- or maybe we did and forgot? stupid mom. Mom says she's seen fiv kitties go a long time! a long long time- even when vets said they wouldn't! i guess it depends on the cat. And hendrix- you look darn healthy to us! to many many more gotcha days!

Don't worry, I don't think I started itching at 7. I did at 5, but that was fleas, which my OTW had never seen before!
