Happy Birthday, Christmas!

Hello. My name is Christmas and today I am one year old. Yep, just one year ago today my cat momma had me C-section. It only cost my people momma $330.00. Of course, some of that was for my brother and sister, so if you average it out, we only cost $130.00 each. That's not bad, right? (Why does my people momma choke whenever I say that?) I was born no bigger than my people momma's thumb. I was pink and shivering and had no hair. The vet said I wouldn't live. Funny, I look pretty healthy, don't I? My left rear leg isn't very strong. I have a little problem with my balance and sometimes I just tip over for no reason. I can still run and play, but I don't jump as well as other cats. My people momma loves me anyway. You may pay homage and sing Happy Birthday to me.

Me? You mean me? Someone is actually INVITING me to sing? As opposed to offering me money NOT to?? LOL

Hap-py Birth-day to you, hap-py birth-day to yoooooooou. Hap-py Birth-day dear Christ-mas, hap-py birth-day to yooooooooou.

Jackie -- even with the sound tured off I heard you clearly. I believe it is seared into my brain ... but it sounds like love.

Pauline -- I love your version of the birthday song. I sang it for Christmas -- she took it as her due.

Bazza -- thank you. I didn't hear the song, but I am sure you sang it.

Brian -- Chrissy appreciates the rap.

Dabich -- Chrissy is taking it all in as her due. After today she will be twice as convinced she is all that.

Rob -- I do love my Chrissy. She loves to cuddle and purr.

Dr. John -- Chrissy seems to think my singing is wonderful, so she'd probably be truly happy with yours.

Nessa -- a butterfly bowing to a cat. Now that's a sweet picture.

Sar -- now that you mention it, it does kind of look like a Christmas tree, doesn't it?

Wow, what a helathy beuaty to behold. long live...

ok, I overdid it, didn´t I?

I have to second Sar, when I saw your cat´s name I thought it is called Christmas because of teh tree on its nose. Until I figured the date :) I am quite slow, I just hope you admire that as much in humans as you do in cats :)

zingtrail -- thank you and Happy New Year to you.

Doug -- wallet-section; and Chrissy acknowledges her beauty, thank you.

Kat -- the vet allowed me to make two payments. He was really nice.

Bill -- all her birthday present money was spent the day she was born.

Minka -- Chrissy says you are not over doing it and by all means, continue.

Lori -- Chrissy got so excited over the special canned cat food, a very rare treat, that she fell into it face first. Fluffy helped her clean up.

Oh what a sweetie, I have a soft spot for kitties, and especially ones who have gotten a rough start. I have a tendency to gravitate towards things that need extra care. The mothering instint I suppose. Anyway it looks like you did a fine job, she is a beauty...

Happy Birthday Chrissy.....mas....

I will not sing........couldn't take the response from the family that loves me soooooo!! and you all know cat's make my nose itch and aren't really my favorite animals, but I do have to say Christmas must be one of the cutest kitty cats I have ever seen! Not that I would ever feel she justified the cost! I do wish the two of you a very merry 2007 !! (your brother said to tell you hi) our snow is gone, your oldest sister is getting dumped on - literally, 4 feet now and still snowing! Love you, C
