Birthday Bash!

We're celebrating yet another furbaby birthday ("maybe birthday", that is) today! Astrid's birthday was in February, and Evan and Eddy's were in April. So, that means today is my sweet little Thimble's birthday!

Thimble's three biological brothers (Toby, Trapper, and Talon) are also all in the family, and so of course we're celebrating their birthdays, too!

Thimble and her brothers are turning 2 years old today!

For those who don't know or don't remember, back in late May of 2014, Thimble and her brothers were abandoned by their mama cat and rescued by my grandma. The kitties were passed on to my parents, my sister, and myself to care for. At that time, the four furry little babies were right around the ripe old age of 3 weeks.

When they came to us, Thimble was just under 0.5 lb, and the boys were all just under 1 lb. My family and I intended on helping the little kittens gain strength and grow enough that they could be adopted out. Well, long story short, we failed epically. Before we knew it, my parents decided on keeping Trapper and Talon, my sister took in Toby, and I laid claim to the sweet little runt that was Thimble.

Something you probably don't know is that we had originally decided on May 7th as Thimble and her brothers' birthday. But, if you remember my post from this past Saturday, that was the day last year that I had to say goodbye to my dear Rosie. It was supposed to be the kitties' first birthday, but I couldn't do that, neither to Rosie nor to Thimble and her brothers. So May 10th was chosen instead.

And so, today, Thimble and her brothers will be feasting on lots of yummy treats and initiating some new toys. Of course, lots of extra snuggles are in store as well.

Happy birthday, my sweet little lady Thimble! (And of course to your brothers as well!)

Thimble hopes that all of her furiends get some extra treats on her behalf today! And don't forget to bat some things around and knock a few things off the counter in Thimble's honor!

Our Tip of the Day:
It's never a bad idea to give your kitty a little extra attention and playtime, whether it be on their birthday or any day of the year. Simple ways to give your kitty a little extra interaction and fun include putting out a big paper bag for them to play in, throwing them a few extra crumpled up pieces of paper to bat around, or putting an interactive game or screensaver on a safe mobile device or TV. Of course, initiating a simple cuddle session full of scritches and belly rubs is never a bad idea either. Sparing even just a few extra minutes for one-on-one time with your kitty can make their day.

Oh Happy Birthday Thimble. What fun to see all of you as little tiny kittens. Astrid, looks like you kept good watch over them. I had a dog once that loved to watch kittens. You all have a super day.

Happy Birthday, Thimble, Toby, Trapper, and Talon! I hope you enjoyed those treats and new toys!

Pierrot is feeling Thimble's spirit and is off to look for something good to push off the counter. A full cup of water or milk always works for him.

We truly hope you all enjoyed this very special day!
