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.'
