I am 14 today so it is my turn to write the post. I share my birthday with Chris’ Mum, although she is no longer with us, and Wendy on Gipsy!
I bet you are wondering how old I am in human years. Well I have done some research. The first 2 years of a cat’s life count as 25 human years. After that it’s 4 human years for every feline year. So I am 73! Gee that’s depressing!
We have had a strange year, but it is getting better. I am spending my birthday at The Keppels! A good thing about being here is that it’s nice and warm, we take early morning beach walks again, something that had not happened for ages, and I can take long catnaps in the sunshine in the afternoon. I need my beauty sleep after all this walking, you see.
We have lived on a boat for more than three years. I enjoy this life which is just as well because I don’t think my humans are intending to go back to land life in a hurry. Sometimes they think I might be bored, but I am not. I like nothing better than sniffing the sea air from the deck of our boat, or surveying our surroundings from the top of the boom. Anui is my home, I can move around as I see fit, there is no nasty dog chasing me, I get treats, lots of cuddles, blows on the tommy from my Dad. I can play chasies and hide and seek. I especially like to hide in the engine lockers, although I get into trouble for going in there! And dinghy rides to the beach are fun too!
So life is pretty good, really! Anyway, for the occasion of my birthday, I have instructed my Mum and Dad to collate 14 recent photos of me. Let me know which is your favourite!
