Today We Are Celebrating Padre’s Birthday


Mom Here: We don’t know when Padre’s birthday is, not even what year he was born.  When we adopted Padre (and Panda Bear and Meerkat) six months ago, Padre’s age was estimated at between four and five years.  So I chose today, six months from their adoption day, to celebrate Padre’s birthday. It seems appropriate to celebrate Padre’s birthday on Earth Day. Happy Earth Day everyone!

Now, I’ll hand things over to the Birthday Boy.

Contemplating the day ahead

Hi Efurrybody! Padre here. As Mom said, today we are celebrating my birthday! So teleport on over. Both Mom and Dad have to leave for “work”, so there will be plenty of fun without them butting in! I’ll do my best serving up the niptinis, or if you prefer your nip in pure form, we’ve got that too! We’ve got lots of windows to study the birdies and squirrels from.

We also have lots of great napping spots, like this one on the sofa in the living room.

All cushy and soft!

Or this comfy cat bed next to the sofa:

In Clyde

If you get sleepy watching the birdies out the back window, you can always take a nap here:

Sleeping Soundly on the Sofa

Or for some warmth and comfort, this cat bed is in the Mohawk and Clyde Shrine (bedroom where Mom’s computer is), and situated right next to the heat vent:

Sleep now, play later

We have two sets of stairs, for playing Thundering Herds of Elephants!

Up the down staircase

I am putting Panda Bear on Parent Patrol, so he can let us know when Mom and Dad pull in the driveway after work.

Mom said that they will give me my presents after they get home from work, so I’ll post tomorrow with photos!

Yous three do still remind me of my 3 robbies.

Yes! Roborovskis are the tiniest, pingiest and fastest and cutest (and also hardest to tame) of all the pet hamsters in the world… unlike an ordinary hamster that may grow to 7″, robos never exceed 2″ ~ ie they stay ultra tiny their whole lives through… like newborn kittens or puppies. Aww!!

dur! happy birthday to Padre ;->…

does that mean “father” in Spanish?… or something else in Spanish? (if so what!!?!)

Happy Birthday, Padre! We think that Thundering Herd of Elephants would be such fun on stairs!! We do not have any stairs here. Mom says we live in a ranch. We don’t know why they call it a ranch, there’s no cows or horsies here…

Hi Efurryone! Thanks for coming! Hope you are having a good time!

To Gledwood, yes, “Padre” is Spanish for “father”. I have a white patch of fur on my neck, and Mom and Dad think it looks like I am wearing a priest’s collar, hence “Father” or “Padre”.

Happy, happy birthday, Padre. We had a couple of birthdays here last week, and we love to have birthday play time.

Those windows with critters to watch outside sound FASCINATING! We love critters!
