HaPpY BiRtHdAy, charlie

today is charlie's 9th 'birthday' which is actually his 'gotcha day' as we have no idea when he was born...he was a stray kitten, born in a barn, abandoned by his mother and taken in to our vet by some kind person and then adopted by us to be tyler's playmate...he was a very skittish kitten and continues to be as an adult...but i love him anyways!

charlie contemplates being nine

charlie is a very different sort of cat...he never ever lets me or the husband pick him up, never crawls in our laps, and rarely shows his face...BUT he loves his brother tyler to pieces, loves to chase kady around the house and loves to eat...he will run around when you toss him a treat and will chase after toy mice...he likes for you to place toss with him...

for the past 3 nites in a row he has come into our bedroom and 'asked' me to brush him...that's pretty much a world record...i've petted and brushed him for as long as he wants and then let him go on his way to do his thing...

charlie, even though you aren't as social as your brother and sisters, i still love you and hope that you are content and happy living with us...today you will get extra treats and on friday i will buy you a new toy mouse at petsmart!

He's such a pretty boy! That's so sweet he came for some pets and brushes the past few evenings. Hopefully he'll come for a birthday brushing tonight!

Happy Birthday Charlie!

Happy birthday, Charlie! Even though mommy often wonders whether you are happy, I know we've given you the best home you could have ever hoped to have and you're happy in your own strange way.
