Bogdan's the birthday boy!

Here he is: Mr. Bogdan, also affectionately known as Boo Monster, Buddha and Bogdanasaurus.
It's the investor writing...

Tomorrow, April 16, is Bogdan's 6th birthday. He's been with me since he was about 7 months old. He is a smarty pants and a troublemaker, and I'm so lucky he is part of my life. Every chance he gets he reminds me he's the one in charge, but he also makes sure I always know he does, in fact, appreciate me. What a guy!

Unfortunately, there will be no big party. Tomorrow, Monday, we'll be driving to Santa Barbara. Work on our house starts Monday, and the cats will be at The Cat House Hotel for at least two weeks. I will visit them on my days off and hope to post photos here. (I take them so far from home - it takes about two hours to get there - because they get pampered at the Cat House... much better than being in a small cage at the vet's office!! My kitties deserve only the best!)

When they return, the girls (Sara and Katrina) and I will throw a party, with plenty of wheat gluten-free stinky goodness. He'll also get his new cat tree he so very much deserves! (Shhh. It's a surprise!!)

And now for some photos ...
We wanted to save this for a Frootbat Friday, but it's important we post a young Bogdan photo. Here he is at about 7 months. Look at those ears!!

Here's a profile shot taken a few weeks ago. He looks oh-so distinguished.

And he won't be happy about me sharing this, but here he is snuggling with me. I think at these moments he actually considers calling me 'Mom.'

Bogdan, let me be the first to wish you a very happy birthday. I need to sing, even though my voice is not very good:

"Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear Boooooogdaaaaan
Happy Birthday toooo-ooo yoooouuuuu!"

Your Mom is very nice to let you and Kat 3 and Sara stay at a five star hotel. But you deserve the very best. I do hope we get to see you at least a little bit while you are there. Because I will miss you.

Ohhhhhh Bogdan, you are a cutie pie in these pictures. I am so glad you are going to be 6. That is the very best age to be!
We stayed in a fancy ho-tel when we moved to this house... mommie put us in the ho-tel for three days so we would not have to worry about the movers and stuff.

We really really like you three kitties. Happy Happy Birthday Bogdan.
Good thing you came to our party for the fun and games then.

(((hugs))) Princess

Hey!! we just checked out the Cat House Hotel webbish site, and it is practically the same as the place we have here in Leesburg Virginia called
Old Mill

That website for the cat house hotel looks much fancier though!

Happy Birthday, Bogdan. Have fun at the Cat House Hotel. I know you will miss your Mom, but it sounds like a very nice place. We'll miss you while you're gone.

Happy, Happy Birthday, Bogdan! I think you and me are a lot alike: we're both white with spots; we're both tough mancats who love to snuggle; and we both have pink noses!!
You're my bud!

Hey hey thank you to your agent for the visit to our bloggie today and putting that nice button up there.

Our bigggg sister is at the Kollig of William and Mary. She says that everyone she knows, knows someone who was personally effected by this horrible incident.

William and Mary is down 64 to Williamsburg.

We hope all is well with the house problems getting resolved.

We miss Dear Bogdan and Kat3 and Sara soooo much <3
