Happy Purrthday, Rori!!!!!!
I don't feel like I'm 10 years old! I don't feel like a kitten anymore, like I was when that picture was taken. But I certainly don't feel like I'm 10, either. I've slowed down a bit, and I'm chunky, so my bones creak a little. I can still run down the hallway after my younger half-sister, Little Bit, and I still fit under Daddy's dresser.
I'm the Big Kitty of the household, the alpha cat, and everyone knows it. Even Panther, who torments me, has to respect my position in the household. I watch over everyone, keep everyone safe, and make sure that people are where they are supposed to be. I love hanging out with Daddy in the chair but I sometimes sit next to Mommy when she's at her computer.
I also like to check on guests, but only after the house is totally quiet. I don't like a lot of noise, sudden movements, or strangers. Daddy and Mommy's friend Debbie came yesterday to visit with her cat, Henry. I met Henry before I ventured out to check on Debbie, because he came and found me in my hiding place! He's a sweetheart, and I don't mind having him visit at all. After a few hours, I walked down the hallway and stood in the dining room, just staring at Debbie. Mommy called me over, but I didn't get within range of being petted by the new person. She's ok, and she is very nice to all of us, but it may take a few more times of her visiting for me to actually go close to her. That's ok with her, since she and Henry have moved a few hours away from us.
It's been really hot here, so I've been staying put on a low shelf/cave during the day. Keep cool if it's hot where you live, and you can even get your purrents to put an ice cube or two in your water bowl to play with!
