Celebrate our golden oldies!

Did you know today is Senior Citizen Day? Well, it IS! And that means it's a day to honor all the older folks in our lives that make them so much richer. Momma and I definitely have some senior citizen love, because we're surrounded by seniors in my house. That's right! First there's


Scribbles! He's 16 years old. That's not too old for a cat, though. Momma says we'll have him around to grumble at us for a while still.

The next oldest is...


Cinderella! My beeYOUtiful sissy. She turns 13 in exactly one month. That's pretty old for a boxer, unfortunately. She's pretty deaf and blind these days, but she still rolls in the grass like a dog half her age!

Then our final senior is...


 Pigeon! My kitty sister is 12, but she doesn't look it. She looks almost just the same as when she found Momma 11 years ago.

Momma says she LOVES her golden oldies. Senior pets are the best because they've gotten their crazies out and know the value of a good long snuggle.

We'll have one more senior in our house soon, too. Guess who?


That's right, ME! My barkday is coming up in October, and I'll be 7. That makes me officially a senior, and I've got a nice gray muzzle to show for it. I think it makes me look distinguished, don't you?

The other thing that's cool about being a senior is that I can UNDERSTAND mom. No really, I can!!

I LOVE seniors!!!!! And yes, you look VERY distinguished! Cinderella still looks SO beautiful -- I'll have to ask her what her beauty secrets are! She doesn't look a day over 9! Maybe it's her inner beauty shining through? Whatever it is, she is gorgeous.
Happy senior day to your kitties, too! They both look like very nice cats!
Cammie!
