    Handsome Hobbes

    Hobbes, it is deeply touching to hear how close you and your meowmie are. And your face tells the truth: you really love her as she loves you.
    I am sorry to hear that you suffer from several ailments senior kitties have to face and I hope that all the TLC you get will help you to some more happy years.
    We love your pictures here and we are glad to see even more on your meowmie's website. She is such an excellent photographer who captures nature, animals and your own handsome self just perfectly.
    Have a day of celebration today with extra treats, purrs and cuddles.

    Dearest Hobbes, what an utterly delightful, beloved Orange Gentleman you are! You are so very handsome, as is shown so well in your talented photographer Meowmie's portraits of you! You have the sweetest face with the most contented look in your pale-green eyes, captured so well in the photos, and you have that lovely soft-looking orange fur. I so much wish I could reach over to San Francisco and pet you! Well, since I can't, I hope your dear Laura will give you some pets for me .

    And not only are you gorgeous to look at, you have the most lovely, gentle, delightful Purrrsonality! You have been through some serious medical crises and have ongoing medical issues, and we are so glad you are doing well. Your Meowmie gives you the fluids and medications you need to keep on going, and you are so patient and uncomplaining when being given pills and fluids and even a bath. You just purr away, and you squeak with delight when she kisses your ears! She has never once heard you hiss. You and she love each other very much and are blessed to be together. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!

    Congratulations, darling Hobbes, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and Meowmie Laura and all your friends are enjoying a fine day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.

    Hobbes

    Wow, we have had similar lives with our kitties. I just lost my guy at age 18 in May; he also had some renal and colon issues, but still had a good life to the end. I hope you and Hobbs are together for a while yet, good luck to both of you.

    Thank you!



    Thank you to everyone who is replying! Hobbes and I appreciate every one of you. Knowing people care about us is very important. )))))) I've never had a bond like this with all the animals I've had over my lifetime, and I've had several. All my companions have been loved, but because Hobbes is older, I've developed even more a bond with him. Right now he is sleeping on my bed...I can see him from the living room where I'm in. He sends all his purrrrrs your way!

    Precious Hobbes!

    Happy Cat of the Day, and early happy 18th birthday wishes to you, precious Hobbes! Nothing beats seeing a most deserving senior such as you Hobbes, being honored here on Cat of the Day! Your Mommy's loving words, reading of the beautiful, unbreakable bond of love and trust you and she share, brought tears to my eyes. God bless your Mommy for doing all in her power (not just now but over the years), to keep you healthy and happy! And oh, what a brave boy you are, tolerating all of your treatments, baths, your meds, with such grace, such patience...all with never a hiss, not a single one! Yes, your Mommy IS truly blessed having known your unconditional love these many years, Hobbes, and I hope that you and she will know many more wonderful years together! And oh, isn't your Mommy one incredibly talented photographer! Of course we know you are her favorite subject! Thanks for the smiles and warmed heart, sweetheart! I hope you and your Mommy are enjoying a very special day, celebrating your well earned day of honor! Lots of love, cuddles and kisses to you, precious Orangeman Hobbes!
