Happy Sixth Birthday to The Fantastic Four!

I am so excited to wish a Happy Sixth Birthday to four of the biggest inspirations in my life—and a real “Happy Mother’s Day” to their Mama Mimi—although this morning they were over that and were ready for their breakfast. Today we remember those times years ago and all the cats we’ve known and all the things we’ve learned and done, and get ready for another year.

And many, many more! XOXOOXOXO Nuzzles and Purrrrrrs to my sweets and all our memories!

. . . . . . .

Birthday greetings have arrived from our extended feline family in Canada!

First from Mademoiselle Daisy Emerald, a special birthday wish for Giuseppe Basil Verdi:

Giuseppe, mon cher,

All my love to you my dearest, my most cherished Giuseppe.
Purrrrrrrrrs and nuzzles.
Forever yours,
Mlle Daisy Emerald. xoxoxo

. . . . . . .

And from the newest house panther in our extended family, a special birthday wish for Monsieur Sunshine and family from Monsieur Theophile:

Good evening dear Soul Brother,
This is Theophile, way up north in Frontenac County on Rock Lake and I am sending my very best wishes for yourbirthday to you, Sunshine, and your lovely sister Mewsette and your brothers Jelly Bean and Giuseppe Verdi. And, of course, to your lovely little Mama Mimi and your Mama Bernadette.  Such a big family you have!  (And how are The Seniors this evening?) You know, till Christmas Eve I had no family, only my friend Wiccan and Daisy’s kind Mama, now MY Mama too!, and dear Mlle Daisy who I would watch through the window of the old Yellow House in Kingston Town.
But this is not about me, my friend.  It is my message of joy and happiness to you and your family for the celebration of your birthday.
I hope you have a wonderful Fete and purrrrrrrrrrrhaps something special for breakfast when you awake early in the morning.
Salutations and all the best to my dear friend and soulmate Monsieur Sunshine way far away in the town of Carnegie where I have never been.
Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, Theophile L.

Mimi was not here with me yet when they were born, that would happen on July 29, so we will have a celebration on Sunday for their birth and for Mimi’s homecoming as well as theirs, when they were welcomed by me and Peaches and Cookie and Kelly and Namir. That will always be a joyful day!

Thank you for visiting and sharing this day!
