Happy Milou’s Day!

Hiya everyone!

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!

  6. 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!
    Love, Sundae

  7. 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”

  8. 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

  9. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. Happy Birthday Milou! May your day be filled with love & cuddles and treats & nip. Lots & lots of the nip! purrs

  12. 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.

  13. Oh Texas and Carine and Milou, so sorry to have missed this special day for Milou…he is precious as are all of us felines! MOL!! And I know, from what Mom told me, that when my ‘before me’ brothers and sister passed, each one missed the one who went before…it is natural…but hard…keep happy with Miss Kitshka Milou! Paw pats, Savvy
