Happy 5th Birthday Patches!

This is my very first picture. This is when Mom fell in love with me.

Today is my birthday. Five years ago I was borned on my grandma's farm. My mom and dad saw me when I was only a few days old. Mom had been wanting to get a calico cat and I just was born at the right time. They told Grandma that they wanted me so she kept her eye on me. I was borned in a chainsaw box and tried to escape several times. Grandma finally took me and my litter mates inside and mom and dad came and visited me many times. Mom says I'm getting old because I'm getting some gray hairs. My mom cat was a dilute calico so I say I'm just changing colors. I'd show lots of pictures of me as a baby but that was a time before mom and dad had a digital camera.

This is me as a tiny kitten at one of my Mom and Dad's visits.

I will post a picture of me and my tuna cake tonight. I have lots of tuna and temptations and lots of nip to share so teleport over and we can celebrate.

Tomorrow morning is when Mom and Dad will go to the hospital to start the abduction. Hopefully we will have a baby home by the weekend. We are not so sure about this but Mom bought us Sheba to butter us up so maybe it won't be too bad. We will post pictures and info as soon as our Mom and Dad get home with the new baby.

Hello, I saw you over at a friends blog and came over to say Happy Birthday.

You are the most beautiful colour. Mum had a beautiful cat the same colour for almost 20 years. You look just like her.

Nice to meet you

Happy Birthday Patches! I can see why it was love at first sight. You were adorable! You're to young to have any gray hairs, all I see are pretty furs.

I hope you have a wonderful day and I can't wait to see you enjoying your special tuna cake!!

We will purr for your mommy and the adbuction and are sure she will be fine. We are expecting a blurpy thing in July and mommy will have to have a C-section because of her ouchy back.
