“It is impossible for a lover of cats to banish these alert, gentle, and discriminating friends, who give us just enough of their regard and complaisance to make us hunger for more.” ~Agnes Repplier
This morning in particular I am really missing my little friend. 13 years of companionship seems like not enough time. He will always be in my heart...
CJ Became 13 Years Old Today
CJ (aka Casey Jones) became 13 years old today. He was born on 8/27/2009. I did not get him until the week of Thanksgiving in 2009. So this is his official birth date. And as always for his birthday, I open a can of water-packed tuna and drain the water along with some delectable pieces over his evening wet food meal. He loves it! There is a whole lot of smacking noises while he eats as well as a whole lot of purring. Meanwhile, "Dad" (that's me) incorporates the leftover tuna with tuna helper for my dinner. It's tradition. It's a blessing.
“If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.” ~ Mark Twain
