Mom…….we’re so glad you had a birthday today ‘cuz you let us go outside and play with you.
We had so much fun!
We chased bugs….
We chewed on grass…..
We listened to birds……
We rolled in dirt…..
We said hi to Champ….
We had a wonderful day. We’re even willing to forget about the fact that you locked us both out of your room last night! I guess we could at least let you have one good night’s sleep. After all, you’re much older now.
We found out that it’s your birthday today. Since you did such a great job of celebrating our birthdays, we wanted to do something for you. We’re not allowed to go out of the yard by ourselves so we couldn’t go shopping. We also aren’t allowed to go shopping on the internet ‘cuz we don’t have any credit cards…..
Hey, if we could get a credit card then we could order catnip, toys, treats….all sorts of things!
Shakespeare…..it’s Mom’s birthday….not yours.
Sorry. I was just daydreaming.
Anyway, Mom, we wanted to wish you a very happy birthday and the best we could do is to put a picture of flowers for you on this. We really hope you like it.
If we could find some humans who would get you a cake for us, then we could all sit down and have cake together. I don’t know what cake is but I’ve heard that humans like to eat cake on their birthdays and ALL food is good!
I knew you would somehow start thinking about food, Shakespeare!
How old is Mom?
I don’t know and I don’t think we’re supposed to ask. I have a feeling that in cat years she’s older than the world!
Wow!!! How can she keep moving if she’s that old?
Well, maybe she’s not quite that old but she is lots older than we are!
We love you, Mom…..………and we’ll try to be good today!
