Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I don't know exactly when his birthday is, but we were told that he was 13 weeks old when we got him, so he is about a year old now, and officially no longer a kitten but a grown up cat. He's certainly now a cat about town, a cat of the world, a cat who knows what's what. But even so, after a hard day's prowling the garden and environs, he still jumps on my lap and insists on being stroked. Or playing fetch with his toy mouse. Or peering between the banisters at me as I go down stairs and bumping noses (though this is rarer, as usually he'll follow me down). Or collapsing on my feet, rolling on his back, paws folded in, the unbearable cuteness of it making it impossible not to tickle his tummy.

So, I should post some photos as demonstration of what a beautiful grown up cat he is. He's not actually changed much for the last few months, though he is looking much more svelt with all the exercise he's getting. Unfortunately, my phone camera doesn't have a flash, making it difficult to capture a black cat in all his beauty in the house. This is the best I have, with freya_9 last month:

Maybe someone who has caught Kzin on virtual film can post a photo in the comments?

Happy birthday to the no-longer-kitten-cat! Hard to believe that a year ago he was entering this world in a back garden somewhere in Abingdon. Give him a stroke from me. :)

Thanks. I told him the strokes were from you, but I'm not sure that cats hold with all this virtual stuff (see recent xkcd, for example). You'll have to come and visit and stroke him IRL. Hint, hint.

Tell that volcano to stop erupting and I'll think about it!

But you were just saying how you were enjoying the volcano. I'm sure it will be over soon and you can switch your interest from volcanoes to punt planning.
