Rusty is Seven



Happy 7th Birthday, Rusty!


We're so glad you joined our family. You are the gentle giant of the Funny Farm. Well, the gentle giant kitty. Merci is about your size but Buddy and Sam tower over you.

Rusty, we have a chipmunk video for you. We know you like chipmunks. So enjoy the Chipmunks doing the happy birthday dance.


If the video doesn't play, click here.

Now we'd like to invite all of you to have a piece of birthday cake with us.

Jan, where'd you hide Rusty's cake? You know, his birthday cake. You what?

Uh, we apologize but there will be a slight delay in cutting the cake. Jan forgot to buy one. Or make one. Or even borrow one. She's on her way to pick up one now. Just as soon as she finds her car keys. And some money.

*** Toes tap, tap, tap impatiently. Buddy paces the room. Percy searches the internet for a last ditch quick cake delivery service.***

Oh, here she comes. Hurry, hurry, hurry .... okay, let's see what you got? Uh-oh, Sam did you eat two of the candles before they were lit? Oh, Jan only had enough green papers on her to buy 5. Well, this will just have to do.


Okay, let's dig in and have some cake.

We need to work on Jan's preparedness skills. She doesn't have any. If we hadn't seen Rusty's birthday on the CB this morning .. uh, if we hadn't remembered this morning .. Oh, congratulations, Rusty, we'll all try to be more prepared next year.

PS - Please forgive us if we appear to be missing more than usual. We are. We are trying to read your blogs but we aren't getting to comment much. We had 283 TIF files from 2004 - 2005 with problems and they have been causing us some headaches, so Jan has been losing her mind working diligently to make a copy of each and move the problem files out of the Picture folder. Most of them are of us, especially Buddy when he was very small, and she doesn't want to lose any of them. So we're here, we're just quieter than usual.

  13. Happy 7th Birthday Rusty!!!!! My Sheltie's birthday was yesterday (he just turned 4)
    Don't feel bad...my Mom didn't even acknowledge it yet on the blog (well it IS a cat blog lol)...AND...she never got him a cake, nor did she even CONSIDER getting him a cake!
    She was going to make him a hamburger, then Daddy put the meat in the freezer (and Mom doesn't like to thaw meat in the microwave) so my brother doesn't get his hamburger til tonight. Mom's are sooo careless about our birthdays!
    I hope your computer troubles clear up soon! My mom says she TOTALLY understands! Love, Cody

  43. Belated 7th birthday Rusty. Hope you enjoyed it, and, of course, the cake.

    Cake is good. We love cake. Especially the icing. It splatters so nice and goes splat when you shake it off your paw. More fun to eat it off though.

    Be happy!
