Sweet Sixteen

Hello. Her Royal Highness the cat here. I have some exciting news -- it's my birthday!!!!!

Yes, sixteen years ago at the beginning of April, 1995, I was born in the fabled North End of Winnipeg, Manitoba as part of an unwanted litter of kittens. We all wound up at the Winnipeg Humane Society. Nine weeks later when I was ready to be adopted, my person found me there and took me home. I have graced her with My Royal Presence ever since.

Here's my baby picture -- I know, cuteness personified!


And of course, here I am today -- the Queen of All and Everything!


Be sure to come back tomorrow -- I have a surprise to celebrate my birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Her Royal Highness!!!

Who is a lucky, lucky cat, btw. Hope HHH will spend some time today, reflecting on just how lucky she has been! To have gotten the home, which she did.

:-)))))))))))))))))))

Even here in Roma where the Baroque is commonplace I don't think I've seen a more regal portrait! Auguri oh Regina magna et buon compleanno.

A HUGE Catnippy, tuna infused Birthday Wish for you, your Royalness!! I'm sure a huge parade and formal ball have been planned in honor of your special day!

Yes, your baby picture is adorable, and I'll bet that you haven't aged a bit!

And I know that you take your life for granted, thinking that all other kitties live exactly the same way, but sadly, that is not so. .you are one lucky little girl to have two humans who love you so much, that they have elevated your status to one of royal peerage. .you have them to thank for living a life of luxury, for such a long time! This might be a nice time to share your bowl of kibble with them. .or at least sit on their laps, and purr loudly.

Happy Birthday, little one!

Happy Birthday Your Highness!

We just knew there was something special about today! Bonny and Claude, Martha Stewart and Squeaker send their birthday wishes. Flynn does too, but she is a dog so I'm not sure if that counts.

And a big birthday scratch on the head from me, Your Highness!

I wish Your Highness the most wonderful of birthdays! I trust there will be much Pomp and Circumstance, with the finest cuisine and noteworthy guests to entertain...no doubt your human companions have plans well underway for this momentous event.

Wishing you the continuation of a long and happy reign, Majesty...

(I curtsy reverently and back away)

Kal said...

That is a beautiful cat. I would suggest introducing her to the Admiral but he is difficult to get along with at the best of times. You really stick to that 'no males' edict around your house don't you?

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Happy Bday HRH! Love that baby picture! What a stunning feline you've become! What are your thoughts on the Royal Wedding?

Wendy said...

Happy, happy Purrfday YRH! We know we're a day late, but we're so excited for you. Sixteen years and putting up with your humans is a very admirable feat and of course you deserve to be treated like the queen that you are! We's hope you gets lots of snuggles (if you'll allow your humans that pleasure) and we know you're not allowed "treats" but maybe your mommies will allow you one or two...
