Waiting Wednesday

It's getting close to the big holidays. Christmas will be fun as always. My Grandparents are coming to town as they usually do. I really like the guy who looks like the older version of Dad.

They spend a lot of time admiring me, so who doesn't like that? This year they are bringing some friends too, and I imagine they too will want to admire me. I'm not sure I will allow that. I'll be playing it cool and aloof and taking a wait and see approach..

Of course if they are not "Cat People" I will make every effort to love up on em. I feel it's important to sway them to our side. If they are "Cat People" I'll make em work for it.

Then the next week is Birthday week. Mom and I share the same Birthday on January 1. No one knows my exact birth date but Mom counted back and figured I was born right around then and asked me to share. I agreed of course. As long as we don't have to share presents. I doubt she'd want my mouse anyway, but you never know.

I'm going to turn 14 and Mom is gonna turn... what Mom? Aren't you going to share your age too? No? We'll see.

I make 14 look good don't I? Gray is my color.

Now and

Then... I was about a year old. See my tabby stripes?

  1. Oh Fin. You are 14 beautiful gorgeous years old. I love seeing you as a kitten. I don't have too many of me then, just a few. But your picture is beautiful and so are you.

    You're right of course, make the cat people work for it!!!

    My mommy won't say her age either. I say be proud of it. I am. I'm 12 years old.

  2. Totally FIN! Happy 14th birthday my friend, I am 12 too and Mom says I am finally 'mellowing out' whatever that means--I have purr-sonality you know-mischief and everything. I still think you and me should have a 'date' tuna juice cocktails- snuggling by the fire-catnip and such: oohllala
    Well-have fun with your company and Merry Christmas! --Mocha

  6. I think it's gonna be party central over at your place. Make sure the visitors give you lots of treats before you let them love on you! I wish I could do that. I usually give in at hello.

  30. Dear Fin

  31. Fin, you DID know Scouty has a crush on you...he thought maybe you were 4 like him!
    As for your Mom, well, ALL humans are ancient, aren't they? heh heh.

  32. You look marvelous, Fin! You ROCK 14, my friend!

  33. fin, never forget, your greatest strength is recognizing those who are allergic and might not be kitty oriented. give 'em double rubs.

  34. Ahh...Ms. Fin, I think you look deee-vine in your "Now" photo. Tommy--oooh and babbled when she saw your itty bitty kitty picture. I gotta admit, I like it too! You got stripes like ME!

  35. Hi Fin! It sounds like you have a great plan for your visitors - and we agree that if someone isn't a cat person, it is a cats job to change that!

    And we can't believe you are 14 - you look so good! And of course you have such a fun spirit - our only real in person older ladycat experience is with Lola, and she is a cranky old lady cat (which is ok too). We think you should keep an eye on any mousies you get though - they are pretty fun so you never know - your mom might decide she needs to play!
