Shilgiah is Nine!

I turned 9 on Thursday October 1st but we didn't celebrate my birthday until Saturday evening October 3rd. It was driving me crazy too because I knew that something was hidden in the study closet and I was sure if I tried really hard I could get the closet open and find out what it was.

If I could just push a little harder I was sure I could get it open...if only mom hadn't wedged the door shut with the stick we use to get our play mouses out from under the couch and the refrigerator!

Finally! Last night the mystery gift came out and Tommy helped me unwrap it. It was a corrugated cardboard kitty couch just for me.

Mom said I was the good kitty who never scratched the furniture. So, she thought I deserved my own scratchy couch to scratch on. I love it and enjoyed scratching and lounging! Thanks mom!

After I got my scratchy couch, mom opened the can of mac-n-jack (the special favorite birthday mackerel and skip jack food) and lit my birthday candle and sang to me. And after eating I got more presents...a feathers on a stick toy, a special high grade cat nip and a new halter. Mom says she is going to see if this year we can begin to take little walks outside like we did before we moved here.

Then, Mom put my red tiara on me for a picture but I quickly took it off in order to inspect it...

Humm, nice quality plastic...but where are the diamonds?

Have a wonderful week every cat and cat family!

Happy Birthday, Shilgiah!

That scratchy lounger looks incredible!! I hope we don't have to wait until we're 9 to get one!

Happy Birthday Shilgiah! You really look beautiful in your red tiara!

Happy Birthday, Shilgiah! What a lovely couch you got.

I think there are no diamonds on your beautiful tiara because it is encrusted with RUBIES!

Happy birthday, Shilgiah! (No matter when they celebrate it.)

Yes, it looks like your Mom went all out for your purrthday, dear. But, you'd think she could have sprung for a few measly diamonds for that tiara. It's only right.

Happy Birthday, Shilgiah! Your new couch looks great and so do you in your tiara. I think Daisy is right about the rubies.
