Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! It was so great to see my pals again, especially the lovely Ashlynne. For those of you who don't know, she was my Valentine and I hope still is. I've always had such a crush on her....I love her fur coat and her sweet temperment and, oh goshm I could go on and on.....
Anyway, we see her on facebook, but we haven't been here in a while, so it was so kind of you all to remember me on my birthday. I had a great day! I had a Fancy Feast Appetizer and I didn't have to share (they are expensive, so we don't get them all the time. Mom pulled my ears (we all get the ear pulling treatment on our birthdays), and we had a big treat party that night and some extra playtime. I may be getting up in age, but I still love to tackle the wand toys. I also got lots of extra hugs and kisses too....I like those alot better than the ear pulling, although Mom doesn't do it hard and I actually like when she plays with my ears.
Many thanks for all the treats on my page and the presents and good wishes
Thank you to...

Wow! I'm 15 years old today! I can't believe another year has gone by. 15 years...that's rougly the equivalent of 76 in human years according to a calculator mom found on the web.
My health has changed a bit in this last year. Mom noticed a few months ago that I can no longer hear. I don't hear the can opener, I don't hear her call me or use my "whistle" (She has a special whistle that I would always respond to), I can't hear the water splashing in the tub (Mom has to show me that it is turned on for me to get a drink). Although there are some advantages too ....I didn't mind the fireworks on New Year's Eve and football season with all that yelling at the TV wasn't too bad either. I even sleep through the vaccuum cleaner!
I was also diagnosed with (CKD) Chronic Kidney Disease. Mom got special food from the vet for me, but I absolutely hate it! Even if it is mixed in with regular food, I know it is there and won't eat anything. Mom is still going to keep trying though, she wants to keep me around a while longer. I do drink alot of water and the vet said that is a good thing for me.
I'm still a good boy though. I love to nap with Mom in the recliner. I like to have nip parties. I am patient with my furry family and love to groom the top of their heads. I love rotissiere chicken. I love when Aunt Anita comes to visit. I also like hanging out in the man-cave (the basement) with my buddy Skylar.
Purrs and head nudges to you all,

Sunday was my 14th Birthday! Pretty hard to imagine. It seems like only yesterday.....hmmmm. I must be getting old, I feel nostalgic!
We didn't do too much to celebrate on Sunday, but let me tell you about Tuesday! Wait, maybe I should start with the middle of last week. Our fountain was acting up. Sometimes it would run and sometimes it would stop. When it wasn't running, Ivan would bite the edge of it, try to pick it up and bang it back down. (It is actually velcroed to a mat because he can pick it up and spill it). Mom cleaned it a few times thinking that something was wrong with the filter or the pump. Well on Thursday she felt the cord and it was way too warm. So the fountain was no more! A sad day in our household. We all love the fountain, Mom is constantly refilling it. She got on the computer and ordered us a new one...while she was at it she ordered us 2 new scratching posts and one for our other grammy's kitten too.
On Tuesday, Skylar was waiting on the radiator for the mailman. He watches for him every day. Skylar saw someone else first though...the UPS man, leaving 3 big boxes on our porch. He ran and told us and we all took turns looking out the window and trying to guess what was inside. We didn't get to open the boxes till the Moms were both home. It was awesome! We were thrilled to have a fountain again and we are enjoying the new posts. One is carpet and one is sisal and they are tall so we can stretch good when we scratch. We also have one of those corrugated cardboard lounge scratchers and we love that too. We also got to play in the big boxes, that was almost as much fun!
Many thanks for all who stopped by my page for my birthday. I'm so glad you are still hanging out here. Thank you for the gifts and well wishes. Special thanks to WeBeeSiamese for the picture, you made this old man look downright handsome! Love you guys more than my new scratchers,
