Tanjyobi Tuesday!!!!!

Genji: OK. I know. It's a bit of a stretch, but what is a boy to do? #1 almost forgot my birthday yesterday and so now, I find myself with a birthday post on Tuesday (Thank you, Tama-Chan, for letting me have your day). But then I had a thought. We do all have Japanese names and, in Japanese, birthday is TANJYOBI!!! Voilà (that is French, by the way. We're polyglots around here…).

I have to say that I did consider sulking:

But heck, that would have been NO FUN! So here are some baby pictures of me instead.

I guess it took me some time to grow into my ears:

And my paws…

But who could ever resist me?

Tommy has always been my buddy:

As is Da Beebs. Tee Hee..

This was me at one year old:

And at two years old:

And now, here I am at three, in the full bloom of my handsomeness!

#1 says I still haven't grown into my paws, though!

Although the rest of me is perfect!

And did I mention that I love my #1?


  1. You were a beautiful baby and now a very handsome cat. We are glad you didn't decide to sulk but to enjoy your Tanjyobi:)

  2. Happy slightly belated birthday, Genji! One of my favorite things about you is that you a small cat - like me! Except for those paws! Wow!

  3. Fortunately you grew into your ears ! Big paws are an advantage for stability, you know... Purrs. Zorro

  4. You sure are a handsome mancat Genji. Glad you had a great birthday.

  5. Genji, happy birthday! You're a fetching 3 years! And I think your ears are just fine! MOL


  6. You are growing into a very handsome young man Genji and you pose so beautifully for #1 to take your many photos.

  17. Yes you are quite the handsome young lad Genji.

  18. De la pointe de tes oreilles jusqu'au bout de tes coussinets tu es parfait Genji ... comme moi !
    Heureusement que tous les deux on n'a pas gardé nos oreilles de chatons. C'est un peu grand quand même.
    Moi je t'aime spécialement sur la deuxième photo. Tu as un air royal.
    Plein de ronrons.

  19. Genji! Happy (slightly belated)TANJYOBI!!!

  20. Genji, You are handsome and those toes are the longest I have ever seen. I think you will be able to type your own bloggie if #1 lets you. Yes, I believe we know how much you love your #1...and she loves you too. xoxo

  21. Genji your post is wonderful! Your pictures are beautiful and you have become a most striking adult.
