When I was two, I was nearly new

It’s our birthday today. We are two years old!

Bday2015-1

We still hang out together.

Bday2015-2

And we still fight!

Quotes of the Day (really, selected poetry!)

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
An enormous leopard with coal-black fur.
A little brown kitten that’s nearly new
Is now playing games with its big Tattoo…
And Pink looks lazily down at her:
“Dear little Tat,” says Pinkle Purr.
(a.a. milne, Pinkle Purr)

I love my little kitty
her coat is so warm.
And if I don’t hurt her
She’ll do me no harm
I won’t pull her tail,
Or drive her away
And kitty and I
Very gently will play.
(Mother Goose)

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice.

I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For windowsills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.

I pray I’ll always stay real cool
And keep the secret feline rule
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really ruled by CATS!
(Anonymous)

Quotes of the Day

I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time. (a.a. milne, Winnie-the-Pooh)

Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone’s hand is the beginning of a journey.
At other times, it is allowing another to take yours. (Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration)

As a child my family’s menu consisted of two choices: take it or leave it. (Buddy Hackett)

Title quote from Rick Astley’s “Together Forever.” First line from the film, “The Wizard of Oz.”

We had to leave HMC for a few days, which was agonizing for us given the recent scare. But, he sailed through it with flying colors! He is very happy that we have returned and is currently lying on the bed between us.

Where were we? We attended the New York Comic Con in New York City. We had gotten 3-day tickets back in May. Here’s a small sample of the pictures we took:

Even though I enjoyed myself immensely, it was so good to get back to HMC! Ellie
