The forum cat lovers will like this one:

My family decided to do charitable donations for Christmas in lieu of presents, so I picked a local no-kill shelter, and we dropped off a bunch of stuff from their wish list as well as cash donations. While there, we took a tour of one of the cat rooms at the top of the building (it has a skylight and a ton of litterboxes, cat trees, and 61 cats). One of the cats was a teenage kitten really going to town with a spring toy, batting it all over the place and skidding on the tile floor. He was evidently recovering from surgery as he was wearing a t-shirt that said “It Wasn’t Me, I Swear!”

Thought that was really cute.


Did you bring him home? :slightly_smiling_face:


No! We are down to three and that’s plenty.


How did you know he was a teenager? :wink:


It might have been the spring but mostly it was the size.


@Jules, I see cake next to your name today. Happy Cakeday!


@jules, hope you have a very happy cake day. :grin:

Thanks! You are actually the first person so sing to me today! (Albeit virtual singing. :slight_smile: )


Day’s not over yet!


:balloon::balloon::sparkles::boom::boom::confetti_ball::tada: Happy birthday!!:tada::gift::ribbon::flags::confetti_ball::anger::boom::boom::bomb::ribbon::ribbon::tada:


True enough, but there can only be one first! And you’re it! And I appreciate it! :slight_smile:

Thanks so much!


Oh, Tom! I nearly missed seeing that it’s your birthday. In fact, time zones would dictate that it’s almost over for you for another year. I hope it was a great day. I wish you many happy returns!


Indeed! 2 hours left!

Wish it was! Worked all day. It snowed and my car slid into a guard rail… not going fast, but nice dent now. And now I’m working all night. BUT! I certainly appreciate the thought!!! :slight_smile:

I thank you, dear lady!
