It's my 17th Purrthday
Well, today is my 17th purrthday. Yes!!! For a while there, no one thought I'd make it, what with my advanced kidney disease and all, but here I am. Mom and Dad have been taking real good care of me so maybe I'll stay around for a while.
So Mom, how old am I in human years?
I don't know, dear. I'm just glad you're still here.
Me, too, but I want to know how old I am, so let's look at the age converter. Let's see.
Hmmm...I'm 84. Well, for 84, I'm feeling pretty good, I guess.
So, in view of the fact that I haven't left for The Bridge yet, I'm throwing myself a HUGE party and everyone is invited. Stop what you're doing and come on over!!
We have a massive buffet selection including meats, bacon, sausage, chicken, turkey, ham, seafood, eggs, cheese and pizza so dig in and help yourself. There are raw meats, for those who prefer that, and my Dad has the grill going so just tell him what you want and he'll cook it. Keep it coming, Dad. We don't want anyone to leave here hungry!!
Even though we have a nice yard and patio, it gets really, really hot here in Arid-zone, so I planned for everyone to stay inside and enjoy the AC. The bar is open with niptinis, tuna coolers and meowgaritas, but only milk for all you kittens under one year old! If there's anything on the buffet you can't reach, ask my Mom. She'll be busy keeping the buffet filled.
And, last but not least, stop at our great dessert buffet. We have ice creams, pudding, cookies, cakes and pies of all flavors.
When you're so stuffed you can't eat another bite, there are three bedrooms and several cushions and pillows, so you can rest a while. Litter boxes are strategically placed, but are secluded for your privacy. If you find a litter box that isn't clean and sanitary, tell my Mom and she'll take care of it.
For those, like me, who prefer a quieter form of entertainment, there's bird watching with a clear view of the bird bath and feeders in the back yard or just visiting with old friends.
Thanks everyone, for being my friend and for coming to my party. Don't forget to take a 'nip filled party favor on your way out and I hope you had a great time helping me turn 17!
