Mitalee ; the sweetest kitty ever!

I was scrolling through some old photo albums and saw a few photos of Mitalee that I wanted to share with you. She is thirteen years old now and I've recently noticed some physical changes in her . Her coat is not as curly or dense as it once was and she is smaller in stature. Her health appears to be sound as we have had some senior blood panels done and everything points to good health. She is simply aging and growing old. Sigh.  Her personality, however, hasn't changed a bit in all the years we have had her. She is the sweetest, most gently kitty you could ever hope to meet. I hope she will be with us for many years to come.

*Thank you so much for all the kind birthday wishes yesterday. They were very much appreciated. Each and every one of you is very much appreciated :) *

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

BFF and a birthday.

Wilhelmina and Mia, " We are wearing our matching beaded collars! They were one of our birthday gifts from LP and we love them! Speaking of birthdays, we wanted to wish LP a Happy Birthday! Her birthday was on Saturday but she intends to celebrate all week. She says she doesn't count the years anymore, she simply celebrates longer!"

This is LP's favourite cake. It is a sponge cake with whipped cream, fruit and a chestnut filling. Mia's Mama bought it for her. Thank you Mia's Mama! Please help yourself to a piece, all of you :)

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Shi or Foo Dog.

*Click on photos to enlarge them."

 Wilhelmina, " I just came back from the groomer's and LP laughed and laughed and laughed when she saw the bows in my furs!"

 Wilhelmina, " How rude!"

 Wilhelmina, " Between her unbecoming chortles, she claims I look just like a Chinese Guardian Lion known as a Shi."

 Wilhelmina, " In the west, a Chinese Guardian Lion is referred to as a Foo Dog."

 Wilhelmina the Chinese Guardian Lion or Foo Dog. Guarding.

 Guarding with humour.

 Wilhelmina, " I don't know how those Foo Dog statues do it! I need a nap now. All that guarding was exhausting!"

Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you soon.
