Birthday Girl

Posted By on July 4, 2011 at 12:46 am

My dear girl kitteh Mycah turns 16 today.

I honestly never thought she would make it this long, given her health issues, but she seems to be comfortable in her retirement.

Her days are mainly spent sleeping in the back corner of my closet or under the cat tree — places she can detect an unwanted advance from the lads. When she ventures out, she’ll often lay down next to my chair, within easy skritching distance. Plus, I protect her from those unwanted advances.

(Packet’s idea of fun is ambushing Mycah, or otherwise jumping on her. Kismet merely reaches out a paw to touch her, or tries to groom her. Either way, she objects to the attention, unless I have a hand on her at that moment.)

Tomorrow we’re going to head down to the DMV so she can get her drivers license.

What could possibly go wrong?

Hmm… on second thought, maybe I’ll just get her a bus pass.

    Happy birthday, Mycah! Our angel Annie knew what those unwanted advances were like, from us. LOL. We, too, hope you have a peaceful day, filled with cuddles and treats.

  10. Happy Purrrthday, Mycah. 16 is a great adge for a kittie. Old enough to get away with just about anything, yet young enough to remember what you want to try.

    I read somewhere that the “cat years” age equivalent goes like this: When a kitten reaches one year of age, she’s 12 in cat years. At two, she’s 20. Thereafter she ages four cat years for every calendar year.

    My wife and I have a cat who’s 16-and-a-half, which makes him 78 in cat years.

    Keeps telling me to get off his lawn.
