Gee I'm Three

Today is the day that we celebrate my birthday and I am so glad that you stopped by today.

You see when I discovered the folks and decided that I would adopt them we didn't know when my birthday was. The vet told the mom that I was between 6-8 months old so we picked January to be my birth month and the 15th as that is a date that my mom celebrates her birthday in July.

I cannot believe that I am now three years old. This is a photo of me taken by my growth chart (the spindles) and you can see that I easily fit in between the spindles with a little room to spare.

Amazing in three years how one can grow or the house shrink. I am filling out quite nicely though I don't have any room between the spindles. I am happy to say that if I suck it in I can still go through the space when I want to.
This year I wanted to spend my birthday just with my folks. We are going to have a quiet day. I am not sure why the mom is asking that I pose for photos, it's my day isn't it? Well as you can see by the look on my face I am not really wanting to take photos. I just want to get to the presents!

And speaking of presents here they are? The mom knows I have a hard time unwrapping gifts with my paws so she put one of my gifts in a bag for me. I really appreciated her doing that as I was able to dive right inside and take a peek!

Oh my cat!!!! I can hardly believe it!!! My most favorite food!!!! I usually eat the dry kittie food but for the holidays the mom let me have special "stinkie" food. I am hooked on it and everytime anyone is in the kitchen I am at the refrigerator looking as cute as I can and making a bunch of racket so they will be sure to notice me. Sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn't. I have to work on making more noise I guess. Anyway this supply will do just fine and I got a new placemat for my food bowls.

Another photo request in front of my birthday presents!! I guess I will have to go along with things and be done with it. Did you happen to notice my new, beyond soft fuzzy bed? I haven't slept in it yet as I am afraid of it. I don't like changes and it will take me time to get used to my new bed. I remember when I got my hamick I wouldn't go near it but now in the day time you can almost always find me in it. I know once I get acquainted with the bed we will become great friends.

I do have some birthday surprise snacks and drinks for those of you who might be feeling the hungries getting to you. Help yourself and please stay as long as you like.

If you are feeling a little sleepy I have plenty of room in my masterbedroom closet and I put plenty of blankies down so everyone is welcome to join me in getting some zzzzzs.

Thank you so much for coming by and helping me celebrate my third birthday.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Gracie! You certainly have grown from a cute little kitten into a gorgeous ladycat! You're really filling out nicely.

You sure got a lot of nice gifts and you have a great banquet going on. Dante will drop by a little later and bring some leftover snakes. I'm sure your Mom will just LOVE that!

Here's to many, many more happy, healthy years ahead!
