SAM:: Today is a special day. Our feline brother Percy is turning 11.
MERCI: It's a wonder he is with us. I told Jan that chirping noise was a kitten but she insisted he was a bird and tried to make me move on.
CYNDI: Yes, Merci rescued a tiny Percy. His name is actually Perseverance because if he hadn't persevered with the chirping and crawled out from under the bush, he would have died there
RUSTY: We're very thankful he survived and came to live here. Most of the time.
MICAH: He hated me when I arrived and beat me up every day for a while. We have never become close, but we haven't killed each other yet so guess that's a good sign.
BUDDY: From all of us, a very happy birthday, brother Percy. May there be many more to come.
MARCUS: Haven't I seen that graphic before? Is Jan recycling again? Can someone motivate her to make some new ones before our friends start thinking we have to make do instead of make new?
PERCY: It's okay, Marcus. This is one of the few times she has read her calendar before a special day instead of after, so we should at least give her a P for Effort.
SAM: You mean an E for Effort?
RUSTY: I think he means a P for Partial Diligence. Right, Percy?
PERCY: Uh ... yes, how did you know?
BUDDY: Rusty just made a lucky guess.
Update: Percy has received this lovely card from Love is being owned by a husky. Thank you, Mika, Lexus and Koda.
