Thankful Thursday - Birthday/Gottcha Day Celebration


Hi Pals,

Do I look old to you?   I was just wondering cuz I turned 6 on Saturday.  A whole 6 years old.  M said she thought a kitty at 6 was considered a senior.  Yikes - I'm not ready for kitty Medicare yet!!




It's Thankful Thursday, so I'm very thankful that my peeps adopted me 3 years ago and gave me a good home.  I'm very thankful to my Twitter and Blog pals for the birthday wishes and for being such good friends.  It made the day special.  M was supposed to throw a pawty for me in the blog world, but she just never got to it.   Between Twitter, my bloggy, and her own bloggy she says it's a full time job that she doesn't always have the energy for. 


It was a great birthday.   First of all the @Meow_Girls surprised me by sending a package addressed to me.  Take a look - there were so many fun things in dat package:
I think I sniff nip in here!


YAY!  A nip cigar.   This one will be fun to bat around the floor too.




YUMM - Temptations and 3 more toys!
Thank you so much Penny, Tippy and oomans Kathy and Anne.   That was so very sweet and thoughtful of you and totally unexpected and unnecessary.  But I loved it.  SMOOCH  SMOOCH  SMOOCH  SMOOCH


Then my M and D got me this really cool tunnel:




As you can see, I have soooo much to be thankful for.   It all began 3 years ago when my peeps brought me to my forever home.  Now I'm on Twitter, have my own bloggy, and all these friends from all over the world.   Aren't I just the luckiest kitty in the whole world!!


If you has time, go over and take a look at M's new bloggy about Parkinson's Disease.   http://shufflingalongwithpd.blogspot.com/.

I think these days 6 is considered middle aged for us kitties - so don't worry, Mario, you aren't quite ready for AARK (American Association of Retired Kitties) yet!

Hi Mario and Mario's mom and Dad, I hopped over from PBU after reading your story!
Looks like you had a lovely birthday, we have a cat tunnel and it's great for zipping in and out of (or hiding in!!) =^..^=

Tamago said...

Happy birthday, Mario!!
No way you look old...you are young, strong and playful! I am very happy you found such wonderful forever home and family. Have a great weekend!

LOOKIN' GOOD! Happy Belated Birthday and Gotcha Day Mario! And many more...I'z got my jazz paws goin' for ya buddy and hopes that you have a terrific year with your Humans! We wish you all a year with many blessings including health, love and lots of nip cigars! You got the exact same tunnel I have, it's very cool! Don't ya think? I got my tunnel as a surprise present about 1 month after my Gotcha Day 4years ago. My Human thinks that this particular tunnel is the best one she's ever encountered, it's very sturdy and big and all kitties seem to love it! So congrats! Hope you are having a great week.

Your buddy Cloon
