Happy Birthday and My Blogiversary!

Today is Ramius' 13th Birthday! He is such a wonderful cat and has been a really good sport as we've drug him on our adventures over the years. I've never had a cat who road trips as well as Ramius does. He's moved four times (not including the move from his mother to our house when he first came to live with us) and has settled in very quickly each time. He's had to deal with a new baby when Caleb came along (which of course led to the inevitable day that Caleb got strong enough to carry him, whether he wanted to be carried or not), he lost his first doggy, Bear a few years ago, and now has to share HIS house with silly Finn.
He has virtually no gray hairs and has handled everything we've thrown at him with a superb display of feline grace. If he feels the need to lecture us the middle of the night sometimes, well that's his perogative as a cat. He meows at us if we take too long in the shower, if he sees the bottom of his food bowl, and occaisionally, just on general principle, for no apparent reason. He's always up for a new adventure, whether it's taking Caleb to school in the morning (Ramius rides shotgun of course) or taking a tub bath (yes, he does climb into the tub and sits on your lap in the water), and when we travel, he comes running to make sure he isn't left behind (he likes looking at the 18 wheelers).
Happy Birthday Mr. Kitten! I hope we get to have many more adventures with you!

Also, three years ago last Saturday (Groundhog Day), I started this blog. It wasn't until Ramius' birthday that I started blogging regularly though - so either Groundhog Day or Ramius' Birthday is my blogiversary. Whichever date you count from, I've been babbling online for 3 years now and you guys are still stopping by. Thanks so much, from the bottom of my heart for reading my uncaffeinated meanderings for 3 years!

What a handsome, photographic fellow you are, Ramius. (A cat can't be told that often enough, you know.) Happy Birthday, dear sir!

And Happy Blogiversary to your Meowmy. It's been a joy to share in both of your lives.

Congrats on both birthdays! My cat is quite old, too (16 years this spring). It's great to have so much time with them.

Happy Birthday Ramius and Happy Blogiversary to you! We also have a 13 year old cat who loves to watch big trucks drive by. (I think she's part dog.) She doesn't like water though. She used to be curious about it until my son, who was about three or four at the time, baptized her - total immersion!

Happy Birthday Ramius! You are so beautiful and elegant.

From where do you have your name? When I read Ramius, I think about the film with Sean Connery (I like very much) where he plays a submarine captain with this name.

Happy Blogiversary to you too, Melanie. I don't read your blog for such a long time but since I detected it, I enjoy it really much.

Mr. Ramius is a fine specimen of cat! I used to say tell my cat all the time that she was a fine specimen of cat! LOL! She left us last October at 21 years old, and she moved all the way across the country with us two years ago (and did just fine)! Wishing you many more years of adventures with your kitty!

Happy Birthday Raimus! I have to ask, is he declawed? Having a cat in your lap in the bath would seem a bit dangerous, otherwise!

HE really is a gorgeous cat!
