the birthday boy


McDuff — 9 years old today!

November 22, 2004, our darling McDuff was born … somewhere in Quebec! We didn’t adopt him until January the following year. He was such a wee, little lad, we carried him home in a bag — we didn’t have a cage at the time. The paper-work was all in French … I’ve mentioned this before in the blog, and it said Β«grisΒ» for colour [grey], but that means pig in Swedish πŸ™‚

The title of this blog might imply it’s a cat blog, which it isn’t, but today … it’s all in honour of McDuff. I’ve looked in my Flickr albums, on the hundreds of photos I’ve taken of him, and selected a few that I’m happy with. This top photo, is significant in an other way also: When I first started blogging in Yahoo 360Β°, back in 2006, my blog was featured on their front page at one time, with this picture of McDuff in the bathroom. Thanks to that, I got a huge number of ‘followers’, and many of them I consider friends and online buddies today. Sherri Ellen, just to mention one.

Today our little lad will get both tuna and shrimp. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, McDuff!

    Amazed at how time has flown…we’ve known each other a good while…I remember Hadassah….and even a couple of your co-workers from the clinic. Happy Birthday McDuff from both of us and the Gang of 3

      Ooohh.. hello Angh, and great to see you! Yes, Hadassah, and then there was Murphy. Tipman always found that funny πŸ˜‰
      That was quite the soap opera I had going there for a while .. Miss L and Mr. O. They married, and now they’re divorced. And then there was Psychopatty LOL

      So … the gang is decimated to three now! Buntings to them..

      Thank you, Barb from McDuff! He had a great birthday, and that showed in the evening — he slept like a log. He even got some fresh lobster! LOL
