Happy 17th!

It's my 17th birthday on this Tortie Tuesday! Here's a picture from a couple of years ago when Mom stuck a paper birthday hat on my head in celebration of Skeezix's birthday. I was not amused.

I know that I should probably have a big celebration with all of you in the Cat Blogosphere, but I don't really do much partying any more. I much prefer to nap! If anyone would like to join me in a group nap, you're more than welcome.


Mom, what's that?

Oh, that is too silly. A little birthday cake candle. I'd rather pay attention to my crunchies. Then it's back to my nap.
Life is good.

Hi Bathsheba, I wish you all the best for your 17th birthday. Keep well and fit for the next years! I wish I would be so alive and kicking in 13 years when I'm 17.

Love,

Smilla

...and it's OK that you don't like parties. I also don't like when it's loud and turbulent.
