HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPY BIRTHDAY, SWEET SEI-CHAN! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!
Today is Sei-Chan's 7th birthday. Many of you know her story and we have published baby photos many times before, but you know what, we're going to do it again because she really was the cutest baby ever!
Initially, Sei-Chan was due to be a replacement for Sen-Chan and when she was born, the breeder actually thought that the kitten (there was only one) was a boy! Some breeder, eh? Sei-Chan first came to Poupounette Central for a visit when she was only three weeks old and already ready to take over the world:
Ten days later, the breeder had to travel to a cat show overseas and asked #1 if she would take the tiny kit and her mama, so at one month old exactly, Sei-Chan moved in to the back room at Poupounette Central, accompanied by her mama, Viña del Mar:
And she never left. When he returned, the breeder said the two seemed so comfortable there that it would be good to leave them together in the back room until the kitten was weaned and had her shots. #1 was all for it.
It was a happy time:
Sei-Chan learned to climb...
To play peek-a-boo:
She enjoyed her Mama for as long as she could:
And then she said goodbye to her Mama and met Tama-Chan:
Fortunately, the two really hit it off!
And then, there was the love story with Tommy!
And so Sei-Chan became part of the Gang at Poupounette Central. She has always been the shyest of the Chans. #1 thinks it's because she had no sibling kits with whom to rough-house when she was little. But she is sweet as they come and holds a very special place in all our hearts.
She is gorgeous with her deep red fur and glorious pink pawpads!
On this, your seventh birthday, we say to you: LIVE LONG AND PROSPER, SWEET SEI-CHAN. WE LOVE YOU!
