Today is Milou’s birthday! Or so I’ve decided.
You see, we don’t know exactly when Milou was born.
A little history (my half-brother Milou is old…):
Milou was adopted at some point in late summer, according to my human’s husband. My human’s husband doesn’t remember when exactly (have you noticed furriends how female humans are better at remembering dates, especially birthdays and stuff like that, than male humans?) and since he didn’t know my human at the time, well, my human cannot remember for the rest of us!
To keep Milou’s story of adoption short, my human’s husband adopted him when it was clear that the woman who had first adopted Milou because he was a cute kitten had realized that adopting a cute kitten implied responsibilities other than just, well, watching the cute kitten. So my human’s husband and Grouik welcomed him in their (Grouik’s) home. It was about 13 years ago.
Grouik quickly became protective of Milou and they have lived together for 13 years.
Milou has had many health issues during his life, including one instance of trying to catch a leprechaun in Ireland and falling from the fifth floor of the human’s apartment building. Thank Ceiling Cat the always-wet grass of Ireland (It was often raining – my human’s words) and Milou’s fat (the vet’s words) saved his life and left him with a minor injury at one of his hind legs.
Anyway, to keep a long story short, on top of his health problems (like a special urinary diet, among other stuff), I think Milou is missing Grouik still. Okay, he’s not always been very nice to me, but he’s about okay with the
brat little sister and he is old(er) now.
Soooooo, I’ve decided that today would be his day, September 16. Milou’s Day.
Will you celebrate with me and wish Milou a Happy Milou’s Day?
Here are some funny pictures of my half-brother Milou!
Happy birthdayyyyyy xxxxxx hope you get spoilt

Have a happy Milou’s day ! As she doesn’t know when I was born exactly, Mummy has decided to wish my birthday on the day when she adopted me. So July 13th is Dayak’s day !
It’s always nice to have our special day even if everyday is our special day ;-)
Happy Day, Milou! I hope that you will have a comfy day with much purring, napping and loving affection from the humans. :)

Happy Birthday, Milou!
My dear Milou….from one old cat to another, Happy Birthday/Milou Day! You may be about a year older than I am or something close to that anyway…..we have our ups and downs but aren’t we lucky to have our humans and brothers and sisters to keep us going…..I know you very much miss Grouik – you two had been together for a long time – but you look quite content. After all, isn’t that what we all wish for in our older years? Content, comfy, and spoiled as much as pawsible! Have a SUPER day my friend.
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
p.s. Texas I think it’s lovely that you wanted your brother Milou to have his special day today…you’re a VERY good brother…….. ;)
Awww, thanks Sammy! I thought I’d do a little something for him + you get to see him a bit too! He’s kind of a loner now.
He says thanks to your kind words :-)
Happy Birthday Milou! You’re a fine figure of a cat (whatever the vet says).
Great idea, dear Texas!! Milou deserves to have his special day! Happy Birthday, dear Milou, take care :-)
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Milou!!!
Happy Day, Milou!!! May it be full of your favorite treats and toys! :)
Milou, a very very Happy Birthday to you. We hope that you have a terrific day with lots of extra treats and some good snuggles. Take care.
Happy happy Birthday dear Milou!!! I wish you a looooong life and always a good cat-nip and a good cat-nap!!!
Hey Texas, Jet here. Hi Miss Carine.
HAPPY BDAY Milou! Mom’s giggling about you in the backpack! Thank Ceiling Cat you guys have 9 lives, seems like you’ve needed a few extra! From one manly man to another, have a pawesome birthday!
We don’t know exactly what he was doing with the backpack but it seemed comfortable…
Milou meows thank you (a manly man meow of course!)
Manly man chest bump … most welcome, hope it was a great birthday!
Wishing Milou a purrrrrfect day! How fortunate he was to escape serious injury in that fall he took. And I’m sure he still misses his buddy, Grouik. So happy Milou found a happy furrever home – just like I did!
Texas, tu as eu une excellente idée de choisir la date. Et puis on peut la changer si on pense s’être trompé… Joyeux channiversaire Milou.

Happy birthday, Milou, and many many more,
from Pit, Sally and the 8 felines
Happy birthday Mr Milou!
ohhhh Milou!!! HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY you adorable boy!!!! I am so happy that the grass in Ireland is usually wet and that you are a little bit “fluffy” so that you weren’t injured terribly when you fell. You must have been going after a super lucky leprechaun because you are having a wonderful life now! Here’s to many more years! Love, Cody and “Mom”
Happy Birthday or Gotcha Day Milou! So this makes you a Virgo! Does that fit? I did an Astro Kitty blog on Virgo recently.
Oh I’ll have to check again for him! Will let you know!
Many happy returns Milou. How can people just want cute kitties like accessories??? There is no sense of responsibility or care for another living soul!! Thank goodness he found you :) xxx
Happy, happy Milou Day!
Happy birthday to Milou! I’m glad he found a REAL home all those years ago…
BTW, thanks so much for coming to my virtual book signing on Twitter! Your PAWtographed book will go in the mail on Monday!
Your virtual book signing was a lot of fun!
Milou meows a thank you (he’s a little shy and very honored to have you wish him a happy birhtday!)
Aww, happy birthday Milou!! You’re looking quite adorable, especially excercising!
Poor Star is in the same boat, we knew approximately when we got her, but until we got Leo and started Blogging we didn’t know kitties had such things and gotcha days and birthday parties! Since we knew Leo’s, we decided to be fair and create one for Star!
Happy Birthday Milou! May your day be filled with love & cuddles and treats & nip. Lots & lots of the nip! purrs

Happy Milou Day. And I understand about missing mates. I will always miss my pal Zac. No-one to tease. No-one to play with when I have some energy to burn. No-one to cuddle up to when it’s cold and no-one to share those ‘alone’ moments when the people in your life have to leave you for a time.
Hope you have a good day today Milou.
We are sending purrs and hugs to you.
Happy Birthday dearest beautiful Milou. Many more, precious one. xoxoxo
Happy Birthday sweet Milou!!!
Enjoy your special day.
xo, Katie & Glogirly

Happy Birthday, Milou! We wish you lots and lots of days of naps in the sunshine, good food and lots of special attention from your humans. We would send you some catnip but Mom won’t let us go to the post office. Happy Furry Birthday!!!
Happy Birthday, Milou! We’re glad you ended up in a great home. Meow from all of us! Au, Target and Guido.
I hope you had a wonderful Milou Day Milou, and may you have many more.
