I'm starting a new BIRTHDAY/GOTCHA Day thread for all our wonderful cats who are celebrating their special day. :celebrate: 🥳 :party3:

Beginning January 1, 2024 please post your cat's Birthday or Gotcha Day here so we can send our best wishes to them. Please feel free to tell us a little something about your cat and post a pic or two if you would like. Looking forward to a New Year with many wonderful birthday celebrations.
:bday:

Who is going to be the lucky first Birthday/Gotcha Day cat of the year? 🏆

Happy birthday(ish), Ozzy! We adopted Ozzy from the SPCA and know that he was born sometime in January of 2010 so we picked January 1 to celebrate. We call him our Zen kitty--he's managed to adapt to and befriend every other kitty we've brought in over the years with his gentle giant (18 lbs. of it!) attitude. He's a sweet old boy of 14 now.

Ozzy in 2010:

It's Tux's 10th birthday today (or at least the day I chose for it), he was caught as a feral at around 9 months old. He has come a long way since then and still only really trusts me, but will accept my husband if he is feeding him. :lol: He is very food motivated, all I have to do is ask if he wants food (lunch, dinner, treats) and he comes running meowing and licking his lips. I can pet him sometimes, like when he is eating, but will normally back away and say "no" after a few pets. I can also pick him up if I have to, but he doesn't like it, as well as brush him and even give him meds when needed once caught. He is a lover not a fighter, and will try everything he can to not to hurt you, only using his claws as a last resort, and would rather just leave the room then get into a fight with the other cats.

Yay!!! Today's my first birthday!!! :wavey::wavey::celebrate::celebrate:


Billy is now one year old. We don't know exactly but ours and the vet's best guess is that he was born between March 11th and the 19th; we decided to split the difference and set his birthday on the 15th. We're thinking to do a BBQ this weekend to comemorate- most expect a cake on their birthday, Billy gets some red meat :woohoo:
