September 17th was my brother Tommy's 5th Birthday. October 1st, this Wednesday, will be my 8th Birthday. Tonight begins Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which according to our mom is by legend called "The Birthday of the World". When I asked how old the world was mom said the Jewish Calendar says this year begins 5769 but really the world is billions of years old. I had started to feel very old the last few days but now that I know the world is very very very very much older, I feel like a young kitty again.
Happy Birthday World! Happy New Year!
And to all cats and people everywhere, L'Shanah Tovah U'Metukah, which means May you have a Good and Sweet New Year.
Shilgiah, Tommy and our Mom
