Happy Birthday Muffy!

Alright, so I don't know EXACTLY when she was born... but I know she was a little over 8 weeks old in early June when we got her, so I call it in early April.

Anyhow, she's a whopping 19! Poor old baby.

She sleeps almost all day anymore. She has lost all interest in grooming. She drools out of the right side of her mouth. And she smells. Stinky cat here. I have to wipe her face everyday with a warm wash cloth, which she hates, but she smells so if we don't.

I think Muffy has probably saved my life. I was a really depressed teenager. I can't tell you how many times I wanted to end it. But I always had my kitty to love me and that's what kept me going a lot of those years.

I really don't know what I'll do when we lose Muffy. My hope is that before we say goodbye to her, we say hello to a baby and every month that goes by makes me think I'm just that much farther from having both of my babies.

I took some pics of Muffy last night on my lap. They are pretty terrible, I am the world's worst cat photographer, and my cat moves constantly. Not even highspeed is fast enough for that cat.

Can you see the wrinkles around her eyes? Cats get wrinkles just like humans.

Emily's kitty Alice is celebrating her birthday today too!
