Happy Birthday Moses!

Our little girl, Moses, turns 6 today!  (Yes, she's a girl.)  It seems like just yesterday that my mother-in-law rescued her from the pound.  She was only 6 weeks old then.

Happy 6th Birthday Moses!

 And another 6 weeks after that she came to us - her forever home.  She was so small and scared that I remember her curling up in Mr. Quilting Bug's lap for protection.  And at night, she would sleep in a ball under my chin.  I don't know if it's true of all siamese cats, but her internal body temperature is much higher than our other cats.  Sleeping with her is like curling up with a hot water bottle!

Her favorite pose - arms out in front, paws crossed

I have fewer pictures of her than any of the other pets for 2 reasons.  First, she's very camera shy.  And second, she blends into everything in our house so it's hard to get one where she shows up!

Laying on the curtains I temporarily took down

I thought it might be nice to share a few of her favorite things:
  1. When I rub deep inside her ears.
  2. Sleeping on top of mommy.
  3. After I make the bed, burrowing under the covers to find the perfect napping spot.
  4. Temptations.
  5. Boxes, laundry baskets, etc.
  6. Practicing her flying somersault kung-fu moves on Sam.
  7. Catnip.

What's a box without a cat?


And the things she hates:
  1. Visitors to the house
  2. The Vet
  3. David (her own personal stalker)

So Happy Birthday my sweet, pretty girl!  We love you!

Until later...
