Greetings, Fellow Felines (and C-A-N-I-N-E-S and Humans too)!

I just wanted to remind you all that next Wednesday, July 4th, is My Birthday! I will be 17 years young. My Human has been sorting our her old photos and she found some pictures of Me when I was a really tiny little kitten, which she would like to share with you all.

Here is the first - she thinks she took this one on the very day my human grandma and grandpa brought me to her. They thought I was a little girl kitty but my new Mummy took one look and set them right about that (MOL).

And here is another one from those very early days - Mummy says I always had "a bit of a tummy"...

And now comes one that makes me sad, Kitties - because it reminds me that this will be the first birthday I celebrate without Pixie being here to share it with me. Pixie would have celebrated her own 17th birthday ten days after mine, on July 14th - only the Great Cat in the Sky called her to Him and she flew away to the Bridge on December 23rd last year.

It looks like this was one of the few times Pixie got the upper hand over Me in a wrestling match. I don't remember that happening very often. I must have let her win...

Didn't we both have big ears? And eyes?

Anyway, what I wanted to say was, you are all invited to My Birthday Party. Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. Israel time...My Human has promised that besides Birthday Cake, there will be Fancy Feast in all my Favourite Flavours.
And maybe Smoked Salmon too  and possibly Anchovies...Oh, and of course, plenty of cottage cheese. I am very partial to cottage cheese. In fact, if you look closely on the first of the photos above, you might just be able to see some on my nose (MOL).
So don't forget! I'm looking forward to seeing you all and to opening .....

(Okay, okay, Mummy! I know it's Bad Form to ask for Presents.  I was not going to do that. 

No, truly. I was not...)

As I was saying - See you all on Wednesday ;-)

Snoozy Saturday

Greetings, Fellow Felines (and C-A-N-I-N-E-S and Humans too, of course)!

It's very, very. very HOT today! My Human says it will reach 36 degrees Celsius here in Jerusalem! I don't like that. There's no place to hide. Even with the air conditioning on, I just feel languid and sleepy. Fortunately, as it's the Weekend, She is home and so there's no need for Me to be on guard duty.

A propos guard duty, Fellow Felines (etc.) - I have recently been promoted. I am now Captain of the Guard, with the newly-created rank of Felinemarshall.
That is a Very High Rank indeed, my Human says. However, as I said, today I am Off Duty and can Chill Out (don't I just wish!). 

This is Me attempting to do precisely that (and being purr-sued by the Paparazzi...)

Now, before I leave you and return to my well-earned rest, I would just like to suggest you read my Human's latest bloggie. It's got some very nice pictures :-)

Have a lovely weekend, one and all!

The Waiting Game

Greetings, Fellow Felines (and C-A-N-I-N-E-S and Humans too)!

I am Very, Very Disappointed! My Human has managed to postpone her retirement by Four Whole Months! That's another Seventeen (17) weeks, during which I shall be left all on my own for most of the day, with no-one to pet me and play with me and serve up Tasty Little Snacks! I told her, over and over, Kitties, that I'm purr-fectly ready to lower my standard of living and not have Fancy Feasties every day of the week, truly I did! But She discovered that if she works for just another four months, she will be eligible for something called a Jubilee Grant, which means We will get lots more money. And she says four months isn't so very much. But Kitties, who knows if I'll still be around in four months? I feel purr-fectly healthy, but there's no denying I'm not as young as I used to be.(Mummy says, none of us are - MOL.)

Still, I must admit She has been doing her best to make it up to Me, with lots of tasty homemade food and all sorts of Pampering - and She has promised not to go away for a long trip overseas this year (though she did go off for three days to Eilat last month). I suppose I'll just have to make the best of it. At least she's taking the day off today - and she has promised to bake a cake...

Have a lovely week, everyone! I'll leave you with a picture Mummy took in Eilat. I wish I could have gone. It looks like the hotel she stayed in had a really great restaurant:
