1147. Happy birthday darling

I can’t believe how the time has flown. Persia turns twelve today! It seems just like yesterday that she was born. Doctors said my wife couldn’t have babies. It was a grievous blow, and then Persia came into our lives. My wife has some Iranian connections, so that’s where the name Persia comes from.

Persia has been the joy of our lives. We always wanted a girl, and it was a girl we got. Coming home from work every weekday, it’s such a joy to have Persia greet me. I have never not felt the excitement. Tonight I brought home some special things to celebrate, and celebrate we shall. Also, my wife has had hidden away a little parcel as a birthday surprise. It’s a secret!

Happy Birthday, darling Persia!

As you can see, we really love our cat.

      Thanks, Noelle. I had scheduled this story months ago and almost took it down when you had your recent loss… but in the end, despite sadness, we all get on with it!

              I’ve never heard of an orange female – I thought that the orange colour was sex-linked?? Hence the term “Ginger Tom”. Just as calicos are always female…?? You would know what’s what from your science background… My cat is (different terminology here in New Zealand from the States) tortoiseshell with white and a girl!

                Both of my orange cate – Elijah Moon and his brother Ezekiel – were orange tabbies. But Pearl, the female we are looking at, is definitely female! Will post pictures in a short while.


Don't be mute; hoot!
