Read my considered thoughts and opinions.
I am continuing the blog of Diamond, cat sage and haiku poet.

I haven't been able to get to the computer properly until now. I managed to post some of your birthday wishes from the tablet-phone in the kitchen. I can't manage to put text into a post from that device. There must be some trick to it. Lynettea can't help me either and my paws are not very good nowadays. She decided to put on the larger computer at last and I am dictating to her. I don't really trust her to say what I want, but it was very nice of her to put the invitation on my blog.

My birthday was cold wet and miserable. I stayed inside all day in my basket. Lynettea selected some nice harp music and some natural sounds music from the internet for me to enjoy and I had my usual selection of foods to nibble at or slurp: fish soup, roast chicken, kidney diet soft and crisp food and some cat milk to drink.
Lynettea went to the shops and bought me some mats to stand on because my feet are slipping on the polished floor. I will try to put a photo of my present set up on the blog when I can get the photos out of the camera, not always an easy process. (because of the slow human, as you can imagine). I gather the mats were my birthday present, as nothing else was forthcoming.

It was very special reading all your best wishes and I will try to visit everyone who came. This will be a gradual process as I can't be too rushed at my age.

While the mats were a thoughtful birthday gesture, Diamond, I gather you were expecting something a little more?

I hope you don't mind that I invited some friends over to help celebrate your birthday Diamond. Everyone should have a party for their sweet 16th!

I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your new set up in the kitchen.

It was nice to visit you, Diamond, despite the dreadful weather :). You had a nice and relaxing day, it sounds. those are good. The mats do sound like a nice gift; useful - we tend to get toys our mom thinks are cute...but we don't! purrs,

I think the mat was a good idea. I can stand on it better even though it is quite small. Lynettea says it looked larger in the shop.She said she had to buy two, as they would need washing.

Happy Belated Birthday, Diamond!

We're glad you had a nice birthday, Diamond (even though the weather was not pleasant).

A leisurely pace is the reward of the later years, so you take your time, Diamond. Stay indoors when the weather is bad; enjoy it outside when it's good. The simple pleasures are the best.
