The Boy Grew Up

And he grew up way, way too fast.  What happened to my little kitten?  Sigh.  They don’t remain kittens very long.

Remember this picture?  Taken on Oct 29th of last year.  When he was just 7 weeks old.

And a month later, this one.

So today, on Pappy’s One Year Birthday, Dear Hubby and I tried to get a pic of Pappy on this same pillow so you could see how big he is now.  Emphasis on the word tried.

What?  Lay on this pillow, Dad?  Why?

Oh, this is so not my idea!  And the reason you want me to lay still on this pillow is…..?

Now Mom’s in on the act!  What IS there about this pillow anyway?

Panda even tried to help, but to no avail.  You can see her looking on in the above picture.  I think it was Panda who suggested trying treats.  She’s all about the treats.  She’ll do anything for a treat.  Well, anything has a different meaning in the cat world.  It mostly means that she’ll come running.

How about some more treats?

What?  Lay down?  Why exactly do you want me to lay down?

I’m outta here!

Hi Mom!  And why is this pillow laying behind my back?

Well, hopefully you get the idea.  The boy definitely grew up.  He now weighs 12 1/2 lbs.

And don’t you need to see him in action?  This video was taken on a road trip in our motorhome a few weeks ago.

He and Panda are quite animated playing on their tree.  Even while we travel down the highway.

Happy First Birthday, sweet Pappy boy!  I think you’re just as cute as you were the day you came to live with us.  Well, almost anyway.

    Happy Birthday, Pappy! There is nothing like a red kitty!
    And he is just as adorable now as he was when you first brought him home!
    I can just imagine the antics as you tried to get him to pose on that pillow for his birthday portrait. Made me laugh out loud!

    Happy birthday Pappy! Such antics from the big boy! Our orange tabby is a couple of years older and ornery too, but such great companions. Hope everything is good with you and your Mom.
