Da Beebs: Happy Birthday to ME, Happy Birthday to ME, Happy Birthday to Meeeeeeeeee, Happy Birthday to Meee-aowwwww!

#1 here. Today, we celebrate the FIFTH BIRTHDAY of our boy, BIBI-Chan (aka DA BEEBS). He was born here and decided early on that he wasn't ever moving out, except for Houbibi escapades at very possible occasion…

Can you believe that this tiny little guy:

Has grown into this?

Our Beebs has brought so much joy to Poupounette Central, as well as a few heart attacks…

Aside from being undeniably handsome:

He has adored Tommy since the first day he met him:

And gets on with the others:

…even though his relationship with his Mama Tama is not always as peaceful as it might be…

And he is incredibly soppy when it comes to me. Has been since he was tiny.  I think he decided early on that I was his "real mum".

Da Beebs talks a lot, purrs louder than anyone else around here, and can generally be counted on to be wherever I am. We are all so proud of him, and proud of Mama Tama who produced such a fabulous son. We have sadly lost touch with his three siblings, Fuku-Chan, GoGo-Chan and Hime-Chan, but wish them a Happy Birthday, wherever they are.

Da Beebs, you are simply DA BEST!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY from all of us!

Now it's not over! We have a copy of the 2015 Poupounette desk calendar ready to mail to the winner of a draw of those who have commented today, so if you might like a calendar, please make sure to leave a comment!
