Today is Barney Baloo's birthday... and while we normally don't make a big fuss on our pet's birthdays (because we have about 100 of them if you include the sea monkeys) I decided that Barney needed a little special pressy for his birthday this year... one of the reasons being that he is now a big 5 year old (which I think in cat years means he is in his mid thirties) and also because he is a big fluffy and hairy pain!
Big fluffy cat = big fluffy cat hairs everywhere.
Ever since we renovated our bedroom (with my special secret hideaway bench-seat) this big fluffy cat has decided that his favourite place to sleep is right on the black fabric of the bench seat cushion.
Every morning when I pull the curtains back I either find a fluffy mass sleeping on my favourite seat or a big pile of cat fur intermingled with flea eggs and other night-exploration matter.
Well, thanks to my ingenious birthday gift - "the matching everything else paisley cat bed ", I can now learn to love Barney once again. And I think he likes it too.
Happy Birthday Barney Baloo... I do love you, even if you look like you don't love me in this photo...
