Mancat Monday: Carbon's Birthday

Catster.com: Picture of Carbon, a Domestic Long Hair cat on Catster

Ack! Mommy tells me that today's my 4th birthday! Do I look that old? I'm starting to get a few grey hairs, but not too many. Is four too old to still run around with the kitten crazies? I sure hope not, because that's one of my favorite things to do!

I don't remember too much about where I was born, just that I was with my kitty mommy and furblings and then some humans took me and placed me in a cage. Daddy tells me that I was born in the same town he was born in. Tabby was born there, too. It's called Clatskanie, and is midway between Portland and the beach along Highway 30.

I already know what I'm getting as a present: flea medication! To some kitties, that wouldn't be a good present, but it sure is for me! I hate the scabs I get from those nasties, and I know the medicine makes it better, so I'm always glad to have it. I know the smell, and I don't run from it. So Mommy and Daddy are getting some for me. I also get a new toy. I'm hoping it will be a crinkle ball.

Happy Purrthday Carbon!
4 is not old at all. I'll be 10 this year and I run around like my butt is on fire all the time. We look a lot like, so you should be good to go for years to. *nods nods* And I even got scabs from fleas and skeeters too. Not that I liked flea stuff much, maybe you're smarter. Nah, no way. MOL!
We hope you have a great purrthday :)
Purrrrrrrs,
your bud Pepi and the resta the Hotties

Happy purrfday Carbon. We hope you get your crinkle ball as well as flea medication. Don't worry, you can still act like a kitten. I'm nine and mum sez I'm as much a kitten as I ever was.

Happy Birthday you big floofed-up handsome man cat (and Maggy wants to add that floofy grey hairs only make you more distinguished!)

Flea medicine! What kind of a purrthday present is that?! Well, at least you got a crinkle ball so the whole day wasn't a loss. We hope you had a great purrthday anyway.
