A quiet birthday

I spent a quiet birthday with some extra 'spoiling' as she calls it, from Lynettea.
I slept in late under the polar fleece on the bed. Lynettea didn't have to go to her Philosophy class, as it is school holidays, so she didn't try to make my bed too early. Then, when she picked off the polar fleece and started to heat up my Snugglesafe, I had a brush with my 'baby brush' and I do enjoy that. The sensation of it going through my fur is very pleasant. I even have my face brushed. Of course I close my eyes when my face is brushed, as I don't want bristles in my beautiful green eyes. (even if they are soft baby bristles).

After that I took Lynettea out for a quick walk in the sunshine. She fussed around a bit pulling out some weeds and held a piece of my tall grass clump down so I could take a few bites.
After a while I went back to bed to rest on my Snugglesafe warmer and spent the afternoon there.

When I got up I threw up in the lounge room. On the wood floor. Which Lynettea cleaned up quickly. We went for a walk outside then.
None of my kitty friends came for a visit. Lynettea says not to be disappointed. Maybe some of them will notice my post later at some time.

We came from Huffle's blog to wish you a very happy 14th birthday, Diamond! Quiet birthdays are just as good as loud, raucous ones, especially for dignified mancats. :-)

We wish you a wonderful day, and many more birthdays yet to come!
