Furbaby Birthday

We don't know his exact birthday, but it's pretty close to right now. He just turned 19. It's hard to believe. This is what most of his days are like, when he's awake that is. We try to make his food really convenient, even putting it where he can eat laying down.

Here's one of his window spots, equipped with cushioned landing and a spot nearby to hide (wrapped up in the bottom of that curtain and between the wall and a bookcase).

Poor Henry hasn't had a very happy birthday, because while we were gone today the roofer showed up and removed the skylights - so Henry had to endure some dust and noise and general nap disruption all day. Unfair!

This is a cat age chart that was put out by IAMS. According to this, Henry is about the equivalent of 93. He has every right to be a little grumpy, but mostly, he's not. He's a dear old sweetie.

Oh, I like furries too. Wait. Nevermind.

Long live Henry!

Happy Birthday to Henry - may he catch up on lost sleep in a day or two. My elderly Aunt likes to eat laying down, too!

He likes to sleep about 20 hrs a day, so he's nearly caught up by now. ;-)

One of my favorite things to do is to nap with my cat, Happy. Unfortunately our schedules (and his tolerance for nap interference) don't overlap much so it is a treat when it happens. No creature knows how to nap better than a cat!

Happy Belated Birthday to Henry. He's a Grand Old Cat!
