Happy Birthday to ME!!!

Although Mom isn't sure the exact date I was born, she knows I was born around the beginning of November, so she decided to claim November 1st as my bday. I am 14 years old today!!!! So today is a big day. I received my bday gift first thing this morning!!! (Well, not when I woke up, but when Mom woke up.) She bought me a Cat Fanciers' Association Porcupine Wiggler! I'm still not quite sure about it... When you stretch the tail, it wiggles itself to you, and I had fun batting at it until it came straight for me. I wasn't too happy about it invading my personal space... Nonetheless, it's a pretty cool toy. Mom also wrote a poem in my honour. It really touched my heart. I will share it with you all.

Happy Birthday, Baby

Fluffy, you were born in 1994
From that moment on, you are the one I adore.
14 years of fond memories have passed,
My love for you will always last.

You are the best friend I have ever had,
You are always there for me when I am sad.
ere is not much you ask in return,
Yet, from you, so much I learn.

You have taught me to laugh and smile,
To be sensitive to your meows when you haven't seen me in a while.
To realize that animals too are family,
But most of all, to love what surrounds me.

Fluffy, I am starting to see aging in your eyes so amber.
I have to realize we can not be together forever.
I c
an not imagine my life without you my friend,
But to think you will always be with me, I can not pretend.

But for now, your 14 years we will celebrate,
And leave the rest we will to fate.
We have an understanding between us that will never die,
Even after you must say goodbye.

You make my life so worthwhile,
Through your purrs you make me smile.
So let us give cheers,
Baby, here is to 14 beautiful and meaningful years.

Love, Mom
