View Full Version : Happy Birthday, Mimi!!!

I'm not real big on "celebrating" the birthdays of my pets, but do like to recognize them, at least! Mimi turned 12 today, and I think that is a pretty big milestone for her, and for me.

Mimi has stuck with me, through thick and thin, and has been around longer than my Helen has. She has moved five times in the last eight years, has adjusted beautifully to each new home, has accepted at least three dogs as permanent residents (not counting the strays and "relatives" who have stayed with us), has tolerated Butter beautifully, and has given Helen and me more love than any human deserves. And she just keeps on giving. The greatest tribute to Mimi was something Helen said just last week. She asked me who I loved more, the dogs or the cats. I explained that I love them equally, just differently. And her response was that she loved the dogs, but nothing was more special to her than the greeting she gets from Mimi when she returns home after being away. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif It is a special bond that the three of us have with each other, and I just felt the need to tell you all that this is Mimi's special day. She is my Cat of the Day, every single day.

Logan that was beautifully written. I wish Mimi a very happy birthday too and please tell her she does not look her age! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif What memories you all share! I have been fortunate that 3 out of 4 of my past dogs lived well into their teens and hopefully Mimi will too. Give your furry girl a big birthday hug and give one to Helen too (your unfurry girl!) http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

Happy Birthday, beautiful Mimi.
Logan, I could always tell how very special Mimi is to you by your Postings. When the Question about " do you have a favorite Pet"
came up, you answered yes, but would not tell which one. My guess was Mimi. I hope you have many more happy years together.
Someday you have to tell me how you got her to accept the Dogs. My Angel and Mimi's look alike should have a Birthday this month or next, turning 8 according to the Vet's estimate http://www.plauder-smilies.de/birthday.gif

http://www.plauder-smilies.de/party/balloons.gif Happy birthday Mimi! I know you can't have cake but maybe you can ask your mom for something good like tuna! Hope you had a great birthday. You're a saint for putting up with all your furry siblings and showing your humans so much love http://www.plauder-smilies.de/party/biggringift.gif

You guys are so sweet. Thank you, thank you. Mimi has had a wonderful day and has gotten lots of extra attention! My neighbors probably think I should be committed for even remembering her birthday, but I love her dearly, as you all know! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif
