Friday was Mom’s birthday. We wanted to make sure she knew we hadn’t forgotten so sent Giulietta in very early to purr her special rendition of “Happy Birthday” into Mom’s ear. Mom was delighted with the singing, but Giulietta is a bit of a “load,” and we suspect that is actually what woke her up. Did you notice that The Cat on My Head, Misty May, is in her proper place (upper right corner of the photo)?
Mom is really old. We don’t want to embarrass her by telling her actual age, so we found a website, CalculatorCat.com, where we could calculate her age in cat years. Mom is only 12 years old! Who knew? That’s younger than Lily Olivia. Now we know why Lily thinks she can boss Mom around.
And check out this great card we got her. Remind you of anything that happened around here recently? If you missed the mousey story, click here for Part 1 and here for Part 2. The card is 3-D, and we were so considerate, we gave it to her with that piece of cat fur attached!
Dad gave her a cool gift: Adobe Photoshop Elements 12. We are expecting great things from her on the blog in the future. Best not hold your breath. Remember, she’s now 12 and losing brain cells everyday! And she didn’t have that many when she began this whole blogging experiment.
We had planned a post about Astrid for tomorrow, but as our blankety-blank server is down again, and we are using a work-around to bring this to you, we won’t be back until Wordless Wednesday. Wonder if our server will be? Astrid will just have to wait until next Tuesday.
Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
I hope the mom had a super terrific birthday! And it’s much better to think of one’s age in ‘kitty’ years. LOL! Very good. Wishing you health and happiness for many more years!
Happy Happy belated BIRTHDAY to your Mom !
Happy Birthday Mom!
I like that catulator. Our Dad is a scant 11 years young and I am 41… Wait…
Is that right? Yep! And Buddy is 65, ready to get those fat retirement checks. MOL
We missed your mom’s Purrthday! We’s sooo sorry! But truthfully, SHE should be glad. Faraday’s caterwauling is NOT pretty when he belts out the Purrthday Song. WORD.
And our mom was tummy-sick this weekend (and we got her to stay home Monday too, woo!) so she couldn’t respond to your question about Photoshop. YAY! You got Elements! That’s PAWESOME!
It’s a really great program and if she has ANY questions, tell her to poke our mom and ask!
I just might take your mom up on her offer for the help with Elements. I suspect it isn’t going to be the easiest thing to learn. Though, I did get a big book to accompany it as a birthday gift as well.
Happy Birthday to your mom!

Happy birthday to your Mom! 12 years old? She’s still a kid! 🙂

Well, Happy Birthday to your mom! We know she had a great day cause you kitties were all so considerate! And our mom is jealous! She needs Photoshop badly. If we converted our mom’s age to cat years she’d still be elebenty squiliion years old. Birthday purrs & headbonks to your mom!
