My Younger Human's Birthday - By Bitu McClintock

Today is my younger human's birthday. She's forty-eight years old. She was wondering if she might get to do something special for her birthday today. We had a few surprises. For one thing, it turns out that my younger human shares her birthday with several of the dogs who are members of the All Fur Fun Club. One turned four and one turned one. One of the dogs also shares his birthday with one of his people who turns out to be a bit younger than my younger human. Even though I'm still out of Catster Zealies for a few days, I sent my regards to the dogs who share my younger human's birthday. Then somebody came who'd promised to help my people put a bookcase together which they sent for a couple months ago. But before starting the job, she brought in some cupcakes with three lit candles (one for every sixteen years). She'd brought a six-pack of cupcakes, but we only ate three after the bookcase was all put together. They were chocolate, but the frosting was vanilla, so I had a few licks of the frosting. Since I'd not paid any attention to my older human the night before, he got a big kick out of seeing me lick the frosting off the cupcake. When the person who'd helped put the bookcase together went back to work, my people went up to the seventh floor for a couple hours before our other company came. My younger human helped me catch up on my Catster Mail before going back down to the fifth floor. Then somebody else came who hadn't been over to see my people for several months. They had a nice visit and had some cookies and Seven Up the way they usually do, but my people also got their Christmas money a little early, plus my younger human got a little extra for her birthday. I got a few cat toys for an early Christmas present, but I think my people are going to wait until Christmas before I get any of them. The waiting will be so hard! In the meantime, while my older human went to get something from Taco Bell for dinner, my younger human got back on the computer and helped me catch up some more Catster Mail and helped me compose some welcome letters to some new arrivals to the KittyWhiskas For Catsters Memorial Wall (two dogs and two cats). But we've had a hard time explaining that the Memorial Wall is for departed pets, though we might start a KittyWhiskas For Catsters Canine Auxiliary if enough dogs request it, even though a lot of the cats would like to keep the main KittyWhiskas For Catsters group all cats, though you can hardly blame them. We might make the Canine Auxiliary a mixed dog and cat group. In the meantime, we told our late-afternoon company how I got to be Miss March in the 2008 Kitties' Club Calendar, even though I share a page with several fellow members. We also told of the package we got from Monster Marvin Muffin Face's family, though we haven't opened it yet. And I got a couple presents today too, besides my new cat toys for Christmas. One of the dogs sent me a heart "rosette", and several other friends got together and sent a cupcake in honor of my younger human's birthday. Now I get to blow out a candle and have the whole cupcake all to myself! How cool is that? I wonder what I'll get to do when my older human turns 74 on his next birthday in 2008.
