I feel in my role, as Mama Tama, that I am the best person to lead the celebrations for my son's FIRST BIRTHDAY! Yes, my once tiny little BIBI is one year old today!

Can you believe that in one short year, this:

has morphed into this?

Here is a little photo retrospective of Bibi's first year, starting with the Fab Four at one week:

I would also like to take this opportunity to send best wishes to my other three kits, Fuku-Chan, Hime-Chan and GoGo-Chan. I am sadly no longer in touch with them, but hope they are thriving and bringing much joy!

The party at Poupounette Central will be ongoing through the weekend, so please come and join us!

PS: #1 made it safely to Tokyo!


  1. Happy Birthday Bibi-Chan! You are certainly a handsome grown up cat now but we love seeing your kitten pictures. Glad that you are best buds with Tommy. And congratulations to Tama-Chan for raising such a wonderful guy.

    Your friends,
