Hi, Readers! Mom’s home today and now she’s seeing what our days are like. We play hard in the morning and then we nap. Mom caught me with one of the toys that I had pulled out of the toy box. She thought I looked so cute. Then she used LunaPic to change it and make it all arty. She did all this while I continued to sleep. Steinbeck was sleeping way up on top of the computer desk so he wasn’t even bothering me………for a change! I hope you enjoy the picture.
Here’s the original one:
Here’s how she changed it:
Don’t forget to check out what our friends did on Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.
Mom discovered something this morning when she was looking at her face in a book.
Steinbeck, that’s Facebook.
Whatever. She discovered that today is my one year Gotcha Anniversary!!!
You mean I’ve had to put up with you for a whole year already?
Yep! And you love me!
Mom said I could share some of my baby pictures.
This was the picture they took of me the first time I visited the doctor’s house. I told Mom to have them take another picture! Look at my helicopter ears!!!
This is me exploring the doghouse that Mom’s brother made for her work. Hemingway and I share it.
This is me sleeping. I did a lot of it when I was little.
In fact, I still do.
This is me exploring what Hemingway says is a kitty washing machine.
From the Mom: Hemingway, don’t lie to your little brother. I would never use that to wash either one of you. We use that only for the dishes. No kitties!
Here I am eating with my big brother. Hemingway looks really really big here. Mom said she was glad we became good friends so fast. If you notice, I am protecting my food in case Hemingway dared to take a bite.
Here I am playing with my big brother, Hemingway. He’s still bigger than me, but I’m trying to catch up as fast as I can.
Mom, I just want to thank you for “gotcha’ing” me. I’m so glad you came to the Humane Society to adopt me. I just knew we would be the bestest buddies. Thank you for adopting my big brother, too.
Mom told me tonight that I have ants in my pants and Hemingway agreed!!
I don’t get it. I don’t have any ants and I don’t wear any pants! Besides, even if I did wear pants, none of those colors up there look good to me.
Steinbeck, you’ll grow very old trying to figure out humans! Mom has told me before that I had ants in my pants so I agreed with her when she told you the same thing. I figure it must be a family trait or something!
It’s MY Birthday!!!! This is the day to celebrate me!!!
I’m five years old today. That’s one paw, as I’m showing you in that less than graceful pose Mom took of me one day. I am now convinced that “High Five” was created so we could celebrate five years. It’s one paw or one hand! It works for humans and fur people. It’s pretty neat.
So, we had a little party today and of course Hemingway had to join in. Mom says we have to share. When he has his birthday, I get treats and toys, too…..so I guess it’s only fair.
Here’s what happened when Mom surprised me with the toys and treats.
Mom here: I just want to wish my little orange boy a very happy birthday. It’s hard to believe he’s five. I still remember when I first got him and I had no idea he would grow this big. He’s a good companion for Hemingway, even if they pretend not to like each other all the time. Thanks for adding so much joy to my life,boys.
