Post 451: Happy Canada Day…and Happy Birthday Andy and Dougy!

Let’s get this straight: Canada came into being before my cats, so, technically, it’s Canada’s “birthday” first. Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends! Pop a few, though, in celebration of the other significant July 1st event, my Persian cats Andy and Dougy’s third birthday!

My Seattle sister sent this greetings, which, I hope doesn’t self-destruct after a time:

There aren’t any wild plans for the boys’ birthday — they’re cats for goodness sake! — but I will try to be extra nice to them, to overlook Dougy’s bad habit of scratching on furniture when there’s a scratching post one cat length away, and to remember Andy’s sometimes moodiness hides a sweet kitty heart.

Happy Birthday, Andy and Dougy! You captured my heart when you were kittens and are a continued joy every day! This is your day! (In “people years”, Andy and Dougy now are the equivalent of 28 years old.)

The birthday boys!

The birthday boys!

    • The boys thank you, Ruth! They also agree with me that Ali is also one of the top prettiest cats on the www. I think it is their bias for black cats in part, but anyone can see your cat and moine are just plain beautiful!

    • 😉 My priorities yesterday focused south of the border on two cats, but it is fun having a holiday associated with a personal event. Works great as a mnemonic device for one, though July 1 isn’t the hardest birthday in the world to remember. LOL!

    • The boys got extra Greenies and Andy (who tends not to be as playful as Dougy) got lots and lots of play time today because I managed to find two things he wanted to play with: a commercial toy that mimics a centipede and a simple piece of tying string, something I’ve never tried out as a cat toy before. He especially liked the string!
