Today is Timmy's 14th Birthday - to be honest we are not sure of the exact date because Timmy is adopted, but he was 13 years and 9 months old in September, Siamese Rescue said his birthday was in December but did not know the exact date, so the Meowmies decided that December 1st was a good and auspicious date to celebrate Timbo's birthday (and of course, it is easy to remember). Tonight we will have Roast Chicken and catnip toys to celebrate!
Here are some Birthday portraits of the handsome-but-not-as-handsome-as-me fellow:
Now we need to do a 'catch up' cos Meowmie has been unable to blog lately and then she sort of ended up having an unscheduled break from things. We are back now though and will be doing the MeMe's and things that are outstanding in the next few days or so!
Timmy's tooth extraction went very smoothly, it was very funny when he came home that night, he was a bit high from the drugs and he turned into a very affectionate cat. By the next day though he had turned back into Mr Grumpy and is once again VERY frugal with his purring, in fact he rarely purrs but he doesn't seem unhappy or stressed at all, in fact he seems pretty settled and likes to be with me and Meowmie in whatever room we are in at any given time. Is it weird for a cat to rarely purr? Storm and I would burst into a purr just for being looked at!
Timmy's heart scan revealed nothing of concern so his heart murmur is most likely caused by stiff valves and his blood tests were really good for his age too. Ben Vet had a good look over Timmy whilst he was unconscious and discovered that Timmy's third eyelid in his almost-blind, cataract-ridden, left eye has been torn as some point in the past. We are wondering whether this was done at the same time as the rip on his ear and the scar on his nose - and we are also now wondering whether Timmy was a serial fighter in his younger days. We will never know though...
Meowmie celebrated her birthday a couple of weeks ago, Meowmie J surprised her with a trip to Paris. This meant that Timmy and I were left on our own for a few days for the first time since he moved in with us. The cat-sitter told Meowmie that Timmy was very bold and greeted her at the door and danced around her feet begging for food. Meowmie is now confident that she can take a proper holiday trip again - she hasn't been on a proper holiday since October 2006, basically since Stormie first got ill.
We hope everyone is doing well and that all the kitties on the blogosphere are happy and healthy. When you reply to this post please could you leave us a little update about yourself and what's been happening in your life? And here's wishing our American friends a belated Happy Thanksgiving!
Finally, Meezer Mondays are always dedicated to Stormie, and her gift to Timmy is probably the best one - a forever home, and the love of my Meowmies.
Happy Birthday Timbo! xxx
