Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

I'm 18 Today!

Yes, I'm 18 today! Mom is late with this post, and I see that many friends have already sent well wishes in my previous post. Thank you! Maybe I'll even register to vote now; Virginia has an election for governor this fall.

For my birthday, Mom found a purple zoom groom for me. I love being scritched along my spine and now Mom can do it with this new tool. Who knew that a tool could feel as good as Mom's fingers?

And look at all the fur it stole from me!

I had a nice, quiet birthday--the way I like it. And my servants let me go IN and OUT many times.

Mom will be going on vacation soon to Nova Scotia and she says that when she returns, we may get an addition to the family. That sounds ominous, but I'll worry about that when the time comes. Stay cool, everyone.

Love, ~Bathsheba

Oh, Bathsheba! I didn't mean to miss your birthday! Will you forgive me? I'm just 2 and was busy wrestling with and running from Victor. Why do boys have to be so... so... rrr. Anyway, I hope you had a very nice birthday. I love skritches but not the zoom groom. I bite it.
Purrs and nosetaps,

We missed wishing you a happy b'day on your special day, but mewmie said we were just letting you be a little younger a little longer, hahameow. We have a zoomie too and mewmie said you might like a kitty safe heating pad to help keep your joints warm (she said older kitties get arthritis). Here's a link to where she got our pads, and we think it would be a good b'day present, hint hint.

I'm so happy you had a nice quiet birthday. I hope you are feeling well and happy, too.

Check out my blog about a colony of abandoned/feral cats near my home. There will be stories there as time goes on that could inspire and inform anyone you know who wants to help homeless cats.


Would you add me to your blog list?

Thank you,
