Happy 20th Birthday, Taz!
Hi evrybuddy, Skeezix heer.
Today is my best frend Taz's 20th birthday! Woo Hoo!!! And even tho time is vary precious to him, he jenerussly agreed to sit down with me this week and talk about this milestone event.
Skeezix: Taz, to what do you attribute yer longevity?
Taz: Two things, good genes and to parents who whisk me to the vet at the slightest sign of trouble and are able and willing to mortgage their house to fix that trouble if need be.
Skeezix: How will yoo be sellubrating yer berthday at home?
Skeezix: How are you and yer Catster frends going to sellebrate yer berthday?
Skeezix: Taz, yoo were Catster's Cat of the Week this week. What was yer reaction win yoo found out yoo'd won this distinguished title?
Skeezix: As you look back on yer long life, is there anything you regret not doing?
Taz: I do wish I had spent more time with my elder sister, Flinders, before she went to the bridge. She raised me from a small kitTON and we were really close until we both got older.
Skeezix: Anything yoo did that yoo DO regret?
Skeezix: What stand out as some of the hilites of yer life?
Skeezix: Whats a typical day like for yoo?
Skeezix: Do you have any age-related health problems, and if so, how do you deel with them?
Taz: I was diagnosed with CRF (Chronic Renal Failure) years ago. Since then I have to go in to my vet once weekly for a poke, which Dad calls a fillup. My parents are convinced that my doctor's approach to starting fluids at the beginning of CRF has kept my kidneys from getting worse. I also have been diagnosed with IBD (Inflammatory bowel disease) but I have been symptom-free for a long time.
Skeezix: Taz, I gotta tell ya, I am SO JELLUS of yer extensive wardrobe! Ware do yoo shop for clothes?
I bet you don't have your own closet, do you? Dad finally bought me one as he got sick of finding my stuff all over.
Skeezix: Akshully, I do have my own clozet, but it's pretty teeny, so sum of my wardrobe is stored in footlockers.
Skeezix: What advice can you give to other cats who are inching up on the 20-yeer mark?
Skeezix: Those are werds to live by, Taz. Pleeze, evrybuddy, drop by and wish Taz a Happy 20th Berthday!
