Syntymäpäivä Saturday (my birthday!)

Loyal readers, I thank you for your greetings. Today is my third birthday. The truth is no one knows the date I was born, so Äiti chose 10/09/08 as it sounded good (and that's the English way of writing dates). All that is certain is that I was five or six weeks old at the end of October when I when I was rescued by some lovely people in Muhos (about 25km form where I live now). They gave me shelter and then got me to safety. And then I found Äiti and perheeni.

As you know I have not felt so well recently so Äiti has got me lots of lovely healthy food. My breakfast was some sliced kalkkuna! And there is a whole broileri in the oven which Äiti says is for my birthday feast! It is smelling so good already. And, perhaps the best thing, it's not a work day and Äiti gets to stay with us. She'll be asleep on the sofa soon underneath a book, and then whoever dares get there first will be able to throw off the book and sprawl on her for quite a long time as she is so tired, hehehe.
I have already a beautiful official birthday portrait - the painting of me by Denise Laurent so today I have just included a few recent shots of me. There might be some pictures of my birthday celebrations but Äiti has siad something about catnip and valerian so maybe things will be a bit wild later - I cannot say. But you are welcome to drop by. Tervetuloa!

Happy birthday!

We think the best birthday present would be for you to feel 100% again.

Sending lots of kitty kisses and the mom sends smooches.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Puna-Chan! It sounds like a fabulous celebration and a great way to spend the day. It's true that having one's favourite person around for the whole day is the best of all presents!
