MY BIRTHDAY Monday

Today I am FOUR years old!  I am a true young gentleman cat. I have a wonderful home, a magnificent family and a gorgeous girlfriend over in the USA! Elämä on hyvä! Life is good.
And I hope this is a suitable fourth birthday portrait. I think I look very distinguished, with a slight turn to the side. My magnificent ear fur is displayed well, and there is a depth in my eyes which shows, in my humble opinion, the wisdom of a king who has learnt much during his reign. I hope I am a benevolent leader. And also notice as I age, my nose is developing more freckles! This is lentigo and natural for us ginger cats.  I consider it to be a sign of growing maturity.
And as is another tradition, I enclose some photos of when I was a pikku pentu. Here I am claiming the original Magic Fishie as mine, All mine
 And of course with my fantastic mentor and bestest buddy, as he gently wrassled me, Stran-veli.
Very loyal readers will know that the true date of my birth is not known but Äiti chose 10/9/8 as I was found five weeks or so after this, as a tiny furball, and she thought this was a good date to choose. I was indeed extremely lucky to find a home - the fields of Muhos are very big and we shall always be grateful to the very kind people who took helped me when I sat outside their back door yelling away.  I ran away the first time, and they came looking for me but I hid. The next day I came back as I was so so hungry, and they took me in and my life started to go very well. We are all so very grateful for this.
So here's a toast to kind cat lovers everywhere! And to you my loyal readers, of course, a raised glass to  you and your kith and kin.

Oh Punapippuri, what a lovely story, what lovely people, what good luck and what a good decision of you to try if the people might be kind after all.
The regal portrait is lovely but the baby pictures truly steal the heart. If I was your mum, I'd spend my whole time cuddling and kissing you (and that's probably just what she did, innit?)
Happy Birthday, and three cheers for a long and strong reign!

Concatulations to His Most Royal Majesty on the Glorious Occasion of his Fourth Birfday!

That picture with Stran-veli is so adorable! I had never before seen you as such a wee little boy-cat--this must have been well before your coronation?

And who is this most fortunate little American girl friend of whom you speak? Are there plans afoot to make her your Queen KcofF(N)???

Once again, I wish you a most pleasant Birfday.
