My 1st Birthday!

Today is my 1st birthday! I've now lived in my forever home 4 and a half months. Unfortunately I "celebrated" by going to the vet! I got a distemper vaccine and Mom also expressed some concern about my teeth. I do have some mild gingivitis. I'm NOT very cooperative about having my teeth brushed either. At 9 pounds, I'm getting a little "pudgy" too. Tonkinese are generally not very big cats.

Yesterday we had some severe thunderstorms move though our area. Lightening shorted out the fire alarms in our apartment complex (causing them to go off), fried Mom's garage door opener (causing her to be late to work), and zapped Mom's T.V. Linus and I were so scared and hid under Mom's bed for quite a while. Scary part is, the worst of it was north of us, we only caught the edge of the storms.

Strolling

Mom took me for a nice stroll in the park today (before it rained). That was pretty fun. There was a mother with a young toddler who was having a tantrum and when Mom and I strolled by, the little boy stopped crying and Mom let them look at me in my stroller. Then the boy was good. The mother thanked us for the distraction! There were also some kayaks in the river we watched for a little while. Then we had to make a quick stop at PetSmart on the way home for some kitty litter (and a couple toys since I was so good). That was fun too. I had several people admire me and pet me... and I loved watching the birds that were for sale (Mom wouldn't get me one though)! Mom is tentatively planning to taking Linus and I to some cat shows this fall which could be another strolling adventure...
