Happy Birthday Smokey!!!

| No Comments

Seven years ago yesterday, I adopted a little gray cat from the Connecticut Human Society in Newington. My life has been infinitely better every day since then.

Because I don't actually know his birthday, I celebrate February 7th. He was "about 8 years old" when I adopted him, which means Mr Handsomepants is 15 now.

Everyone who meets Smokey says what a sweet, gentle, warm, affectionate kitty he is. He's a gigantic goofball, and he does so many funny little things every day. He truly is a constant source of joy in my life, and when I go to bed each night, he cuddles up into my arm and purrs with his head on my shoulder.

For his birthday, he enjoyed an especially long round of Oreo-loving, we read the NY Timestogether, and because I wasn't feeling well, Smokey and I enjoyed several hours of birthday naps. He also received approximately 78,000 head-kisses, and I told anyone who would listen all about him and how much I love him and how lucky I am to have him in my life. If this is any indicator of what kind of mother I'm going to be, I shudder to think of the therapy my poor smothered children will require.

Nevertheless, Happy Birthday Smokeypants!!!
