It's My Birthday!


It's my birthday today and I am so happy to still be here to celebrate it. It is nearly seven months since I became ill, and twice I wasn't expected to pull through, but I am still here to tell the tale. I am doing well on the low dose of Pred and am eating well, so I think that calls for a celebration.
First though I would like to remember my brother Eric and hope he is celebrating with all our friends at the Bridge.

Before the party starts I want to thank Timmy Tomcat and his dad and all the family for the lovely card they sent me.

I'd also like to thank Sammy for the lovely card he sent me.

And I also got this lovely card from Nellie

And this card from Gracie


Right, let's get this party started!


I've got Niptinis and Meowgaritas.

fresh salmon.......

and shrimp cocktail.

Spare ribs too.....

Ham on the bone,

and my favourite, roast Beast

This is something a lot of you won't have tried before. It is genuine Devonshire clotted cream. It is so delish you can see I have already started on it. Don't worry, there is plenty more.


And last but not least, the birthday cake!

  15. We are totally with you on celebrating, and are so very happy you are having this party. 15 - wowsers! And this last year has been a truggle so we really salute you. And we send headbonks to your Mom and Dad for the way they have got you through this (plus your vet). We raise a toast to tin bro Eric who is surely at the bridge looking over you and holding his tail high, proud of his mighty brother.
    Happy birthday Flynn, and we really mean that with loud purrs and mews.
    Now where's that devonshire clotted cream.....

  36. Happy birthday, Flynn! Yes, there were times in the east year when your mum and dad must have been very afraid for you, but they never despaired and kept fighting for you - not just for your life, but for a good life for you. And you certainly are doing well now. Fifteen! I wish your brother Eric could be with you, but everyone remembers him. God bless you, Flynn, and keep improving!
