Bibi-Chan: Today, December 4th 2012, is my THIRD BIRTHDAY! This is officially known as "BEEBSDAY" and gives rise to much rejoicing at Poupounette Central.
I hold a special place among the kitties of the Poupounette Gang because I am the only "home-grown" kitty here. I was born at Dr. C's because my Mama Tama had to have a Caesarian but I came home when I was about five hours old and I have been here ever since. I was supposed to leave and go to a different Forever Home but I decided that #1 would be my Forever #1 and made sure I stayed!
There are so many pictures of me in the album that choosing a few (!) for this post has been really hard. But let us start with my official third birthday portrait:
I hope you like my bib and tucker. It comes from a great Etsy shop in Canada called Snoop CattyCat!
But let us go back to the beginning, shall we? Here I am with my three siblings aged one week:
And playing pattycakes with my Mama Tama aged about four weeks:
Learning to play with a wand at about six weeks. That's my brother GoGo-Chan on the right!
Here is Mama-Tama showing me the big outside world from the window at ten weeks
It was already quite clear how handsome I would be!
Here I am, at just over three months, with my big brother Yuu-Chan. He looked after me so well once Mama-Tama decided she was done with mothering. I was devastated when he went to the Bridge.
Of course, my other bestest friend, then and now, was Tommy! He always was happy to play, and offered a safe place to nap!
Here I am, at around the time of my first birthday, playing with toys #1 had brought me back from Japan:
At about 18 months, handsomer than ever!
Coming up to my second birthday
You all know that I am a real outdoor guy:
And that I am an escape artist who performs under the stage name of HOUBIBI!
And here I am on my second birthday!
I am lucky to have a little brother I can wrestle with:
My life feels like one long sunpuddle!
I feel so lucky that I still share my days with both my #1 and my Mama-Tama!
