Happy 10th Birthday Buddha!

Happy 10th Birthday Buddha! Today Buddha is 10 years old and while I'm glad he's alive and well and celebrating another birthday, I also feel a twinge of sadness at knowing he's getting old. Signs that he's starting to get old are creeping in. His chin has become somewhat grizzled now. I took a most interesting photo of him when he was directly in the light of a sunbeam. The effect of the sunbeam made his coat look brown and when Catster gets the photo problem fixed again so the photo shows up, you'll be able to see this effect. Even more interestingly, in the sunbeam you can clearly see that he is darker in the areas corresponding to the point color areas on a Siamese cat. In most lighting, he appears black. I've seen many blacks that showed ghost tabby markings in certain kinds of lighting but this is the first time I ever saw a black appear brown with even darker brown in the areas corresponding to point colors in a ghost Siamese markings effect!

I wish Buddha could live forever to befriend other cats, mother rescue kittens, and teach young cats the household rules.

I wonder if he's as wise as me?

He still has a lot of years left. One of our Angels, Inky, lived to be 22! Buddy is starting to look a bit older in fur but he is as young as a kitten in play at 12. Me and Toby are 6! Oh my cat time flies. Toby now has one white hair on his chest. We rib him about it as he thinks he is sooooo handsome! MOL
