Today (May 6, 2015) I turned 10 years old!
I had a very nice day.
Last night, at the stroke of midnight (when it officially became my birthday), my mama posted a birthday notice with 4 photos about me on her Facebook timeline. And she held me in her arms and sang happy birthday to me and then kissed me gently, smack dab on the center of my face, 10 times. Then I gave her sandpaper kisses back (at least 10 of them). Then we turned in for the night. In the morning when we got up, my momma again sing happy birthday to me, cuddle with me and tell me she loves me. Then she comb me very nicely ... even my nice fluffy pantaloons. It felt so good! I purred throughout the combing (it was done on our nice soft bed). Then I got a nice breakfast, kibble plus wet food plus a nice dish of tuna. She opened the door and put it on the screen with my little stool placed inside the screen door and I sat there and watched the world go by ... such fun. Then she take me for a "carry out" outside. That was fun too. Then my momma got out some fresh catnip and we played with that ... I was gleefully rolling around on my back, to and fro, nothing like birthday catnip to make one happy. I was in 7th Heaven (and so was my momma who likes nothing better than seeing me, her sweet babycake, happy). Throughout the day, we got birthday wishes sent to us on Facebook ... we love our friends, they are awesome!!! I had several more outings with my momma and a nice sit together on our front porch. I watched a Robin high up in a street tree ... the Robin looked at me too and sang to me! I was allowed to lick a ginger cookie that belonged to my momma (Mmmm, that was good too). And now I sits with my momma here at the computer with my feet in the air purring being sure that her attention remains on me.
I am a happy boy.
I hope to report more on my next birthday a year from now.
I have had some health issues this last year. I had an abscessed tooth that needed attention and the bloodwork to ensure I could withstand the anesthetic showed other problems. Long story short, I am now in early chronic kidney disease ... not a good thing. It is stage 2. Controlled by diet and lots of love from (and to) my mommma. My momma had a special dream ... that I would live to be at least 20 (like some lucky kitties do); the vet now says that will not happen and so she needs to revise her dream. With God's grace, I will continue to enjoy life and to be there for my momma (who really needs me very much) for years to come. I am the light of her life and the apple of her eye. We hope I will remain healthy and that the disease will not progress rapidly. We will see.
I love you my friends; I hope you are having a good day too. I had a good day; that's for sure.
Purrs and sandpaper kisses from me Tosca ...

Today, I turn nine years of age! So far, things are unfolding nicely. I purred while being groomed. I enjoyed some breakfast and drink. For a while, I sat on my little stool placed inside the front doorway to watch "the world go by" through the screen door. Then we (me in my harness and on a short leash with my human mom at the other end of the leash) sat out on our front porch. The sun was out and I loved rolling around in the warm sunny spots. I watched a Mourning Dove arrive at our birdbath. And then I watched a Robin doing his/her thing at the bath. Next, a cute little sparrow really went to town bathing himself in the birdbath. Then, we listened to a male Cardinal sitting in the street tree ... the Cardinal was watching us from his perch on the tree and, every 10 seconds or so, he sang a beautiful song. Mom and I checked our tulips which are just now starting to open. Then, after a while, we went inside and I received some of my favourite semi-moist treats ... I ate 6 (usually I eat 1 or 2). Mom sat in her armchair while I sat in my climber. I watched mom intently and started to purr. Mom is thinking of getting me a stroller ... this year, PetSmart has one that is Zipper Free (it is only available online though and not directly from the store). I am my momma's Precious Baby Boy, Tosca, and I am the light of her life ... she loves me (and I love her)!!!

In case you are wondering ... I luvs my momma all the time by cuddling, purring, making sultry faces, meowing gently, touching her gently, yawning in her face, giving awesome massage and sandpaper kisses. I take good care of my momma and it makes her so happy!!!
