I knew that something was strange when I opened my email Friday morning to find it stuffed with an unusual amount of emails. I opened the emails in the order they arrived with the first one being from my dear friend, Sassy. In her email, she explained that she was feeling sorry for me since my birthday passed by without much of a celebration. Since it was also Roscoe's birthday (we were litter mates) I had decided to hold a wake for my dear brother to celebrate his life. Sassy thought I was in need of being cheered up, so she organized a card shower for me! She contacted everyone she knew (and then some) inviting anyone and everyone to send a card my way.

And so over the weekend, my email box and comment box began to burst with well wishes from friends old and new. Here are some they sent...

From Sassy

She sent me a new van, but I think I will keep it for backup. I just can't seem to part with my magic, flying van. There are just too many fun memories of my brother connceted to that van.

From Jan the Funny Farmers

From Mickey, Georgia and Tillie

Maggy & Zoey and The Zoolatry Human, Ann

Wally, Ernie & Zoey
The Island

From Asta

From Momo, jumping out of the cake! hehehehe!

From Chris and the gang

I also received a ton of e-cards which I am not able to post, but I thank you all for sending me birthday wishes. It sure wasn't the same this year without my brother here to celebrate, but you all made me feel so very blessed. It is wonderful to know that there are so many wonderful animals and humans out there in the Blogosphere who care! I thank you from the bottom of my heart; you have made an old cat so very happy. And even better, you were able to make my human smile (which isn't easy these days).

I will be sending you all personal emails, but please give me a little time. My human hasn't allowed me my usual computer time. As IF she has a life of her own! I promise to get back to each one of you who left me a comment or sent me a card or email.

Thank you for being my friends....

Sassy Kat said...

Hey, looks like you have the same decorator as I did. Really do a nice job. When do you think they will finish up at your place?
Looking good, cannot wait to see everything when you are done.

Sassy Kat said...

Hey where are you? You are still stuck back at your belated birthday surprise????? Are you OK?

Opus, just remember that every birthday is Roscoe's birthday too, so can you celebrate the joy of having had such a wonderful furry bruvver (who you will meet again at the rainbow bridge) on every birthday you have. That will be reason enough to smile every time.

Mom and I send you our love.
