Sweet Sixteen


It seems like yesterday that an adorable tiny tabby kitten with ENORMOUS paws wandered through our front yard.

How lucky we were that Mother Nature delivered him to us!

This year Tommie had 6 teeth removed, and we continue to give him fluids twice a week to keep his kidneys working. Through it all, he’s our role model for calm acceptance and enjoyment of life.


A nap in the sun.


A whiff of the first catnip in the Spring.


I hold his paw, and he holds my heart.
Happy Birthday, Tommie!


Mickey Mouser says, “If it’s Tommie’s birthday, why am I the one stuck wearing the hat?”

Dear Tommie,

You are such a wonderful cat boy. I have loved you from afar for all your many perfect years and each year you just get better and better and more and more handsome in person and in photos. I am so proud of you for finding Maggie & Rick in the Summer of Kitties and stealing their hearts. You are a gift straight from the best part of Heaven. May you have many many more blissful years napping in the sun, sniffing catnip, holding hands and kissing your Maggie & Rick.

Oh, and great move making the Mouser wear the hat!

And of course, Dancey Boy & Sweet Cocoa send Happy Birthday wishes and their love too!
