Goodbye old friend

Our dear old friend William is entering his final days, less than a week after his 13th birthday. William was the first blogging cat to come visit us something like 11 years ago. My blogging opportunities are less than they used to be, but when I did get to visit William's was one of the blogs I always made time for. I remember the passing of his siblings, including the sudden unexpected loss of his brother and best friend Russell. I know we don't get to stay here forever, but William is a year younger than I am, so it just doesn't feel right or OK. I just have to find peace in knowing that William is reunited with Russell and that Caroline and Co. will take good care of his mom. Rest in peace, William. You will be dearly missed.

Snuggling with Mom

Mom and Dad worked in the yard all afternoon. When they came in to clean up they realized that the pilot light on the water heater had gone out and ended up taking cold showers. Mom got chilled and couldn't warm up, so she got in bed and watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Huggy Bear loves when Mom is in bed, and he even likes when she holds him. He's doing his best to help Mom get warm again.

Mom and Dad were working in the kitchen last night getting ready for company today so of course we needed to snoopervise. Mom made two ice creams (Meyer lemon and peanut butter honey) but we didn't get to taste any of it.  We weren't too interested in the potato salad or pasta salad. The big score will be today when they break out the hamburgers and brats.  (They still owe me my yummy goodness birthday cake, too.)

Happy birthday to me!

Today is my 14th birthday! It is hard to believe that it was 14 years ago that I climbed out of the cage at the shelter and onto my Mom's shoulder. I picked her first, and Mom and Dad took me home. My plan for my birthday is to curl  up  in my favorite box and sleep. I know, it's not the most exciting way to spend my birthday, but it sounds pretty perfect to me. I'll probably have some wet food and some treats too. But mostly just nap.
