It's My Birthday

This was me and Stormie last year, celebrating our special day!



Wow, it's been a while since I posted...that's cos Meowmie is having a break from blogging, things are a bit tough at the moment for her plus she can't find enough time to keep up with all things blogging.

So, today I am 13 years old...I became a Geezer today. Meezers become Geezers at their 13th birthday. Stormie didn't quite make Geezer status though, which me and Meowmie are feeling quite sad about today. Therefore this is my first birthday alone, without Stormie, my litter-mate...on the plus side that means more chicken for me...but to be honest I would rather she was here to share it with. I have Timmy to keep me company and share my birthday chicken with, but it will not be the same.

Me and Meowmie don't feel much like celebrating today, so we are going to remember what fun we had last year when Stormie was still here and our family was complete. Check out last year's party! Stormie, Happy Birthday to you, wherever you are precious girl.



Thank you for stopping by and checking up on us, depsite our lack of blogging. We really appreciate it. We hope you are all well and that your loved ones are well too.

Love from The Birthday Boy

Yes, it would be sad to spend your first birthday without your sister. You two were so close.

Still, we hope your day is a special one, filled with love, friendship and some extra chicken.

Happy Birthday, Castle.

Good Afternoon,

Firstly, Happy Birthday! I love homemade Birthday cards, I think they add a little something extra, and shows the person you are giving it to that you have that extra mile. Only problem is that I have tried in the past to make my own cards, but they look terrible! But I think I may have come found an alternative! Thanks to my lovely friend Imogen, I have now found out about electronic greetings cards, (she sent me one whilst I was in work, there was no occasion - she just wanted to say hi!)But I thought it was such a good idea, I started to look into sending some e-Cards myself. I did quite a lot of research, and spent a lot of time looking at loads of different sites and I have found a really cool Free Happy Birthday Day e-Card site that I really like. This particular site has an awesome application where you can upload a photograph of yourself and incorporate it into your card. This is such a clever idea, and adds that personal touch, and as I already mentioned this particular site is totally free. I think e-Cards are definitely worth a try, they are not for everyone, but I am becoming a fan! Just wanted to share my findings! Hope you find this useful, warm wishes, Nicole.

Belated Happy Birthday, Castle. I understand not feeling like celebrating as Stormie is no longer with us. I hope you, Timmy and Meowmie had as good a day as possible, comforting each other and reminiscing.

A Few Good Cats said...

A very happy birthday to Castle Pants, the Geezer Meezer (LOL!)

We hope things get better for your human mom. It's good to see you're remembering the happy times with Stormie, too.

Fat Eric said...

We are wishing you a very happy birthday, Castle. We're so sorry that things are not as happy this year for you and your mom. It's so hard to lose a loved one! You and Stormie were together since the day you were born so it makes sense your birthday just wouldn't be the same without her. Sending love and prayers your way and hoping your first Geezer year is a very happy one indeed. And for your mom, too! XO

Ariel said...

Happy Birthday Castle(Hug)

Princess said...

Dearest Castle, Happy Birthday to you and Stormie! I am sorry to be late. Mom had a bad headache the past few days, maybe it was a virus but she felt sick... now I am sad that I missed your special day by two days! :-(

I DO know where Stormie is. She is with Caesar and they are very happy. we miss them. Mom says she misses Caesar a lot still, so we know for certain that all of you miss Stormiekins.

purrrs and lots of love

Aoise said...

Happy birfday Castle. I'm sure you will have a lovely day even if it is a reflective one. Stormie isnt as far away as you might think. As soon as you think of her, the Bridge is that bit closer so that you can hear her say " happy birthday my darling, have fun "

Black Cat said...

Dearest Castle, I hope you and Meowmie and Timmy had a nice day, though I realise it can't have been the same without Stormie. I'm sure she was with you in spirit celebrating your geezerhood! {{{HUGS}}} xxx

Hope you are OK!

Craig Hind said...

Hi Castle,

My humans read Stormie's entire blog in one evening just after my best friend Panther got sick from lymphoma and went away. They are very sad, but now they give me and the other one who lives in their house extra love.

But they keep coming back to your blog to see what has been happening recently but keep getting the same page about your birthday. So I'm asking you on their behalf if you could write some more about what has been happening in your life. I'm sure that would make them happier. Pretty please with cherries on top!

Thanks Castle,

From Timtam
(I'm a lilac point Siamese yay!)

Edit by the human: Timtam refers to Mumble as "the other one who lives in their house" as he doesn't like his adopted sister very much. Mumble is a white and tortoiseshell domestic. Timtam says she's common, and she says he is a snob.

Black Cat said...

Just checking in to ask if you are all okay. I hope you are and will start blogging again soon, even if it's only now and again if your Meomies are still busy :) xxx

Isis said...

Castle I hope you don't mind, but I've named the daughter I'm keeping here with me with your sweet sister Storm in mind. It's just she was amazing and brave in fighting lymphoma and since my human family has been so deeply effected by cancer and are in need of some brightness in their lives. So my sweet little girl is called Et Seti-Ra, after Set the god of Storms and Ra the sun god. A full explanation of the name is on my bloggy...

Purrs and love,
Isis and the Lovelynx Abys

The Furry Kids said...

Craig Hind said...

Ok so this is a shameless plug but I just started some blogs for my cats. Not a heck of a lot there at the moment, just some introductions, but we'll get there!

I was inspired to create these after reading Stormie's blog after my own cat succumbed to intestinal lymphoma, and after reading Castle's blog I'm rearing to go!

So if you're interested you can see our kitties at:
