Opus's Sweet Sixteen

Today is my 16 birthday, and Olive and I were spending a quiet morning sharing memories of the years that we have spent together. Olive is a wonderfu little nurse, and she and the human have been keeping an keen eye on me make sure I take all of my meds in order to get my health back on track. I thought the day was going to be a quiet one but I was wrong . . .

. . . Ollie teleported us over to our Aunt Gracie's place where I found out my friends were throwing a surprise birthday party in my honor. Jan's FF gang was there along with Momo, Asta, Karl, Ruis, and of course Aunt Gracie.

The party will last all day and everyone is welcome. Please head on over to help celebrate with us.


Thank you to all my friends who sent cards, gifts, left comments or stopped by Gracie's to join in on my party fun. This party has been the highlight of my troubled year and I am so blessed to have so many furry friends who love and care about me. Thank you for making my 16th birthday extra special!

Of course I couldn't let the day go by without mentioning my best friend and brother Roscoe; today was also his birthday. It still seems strange to wake up in the morning without having him sleeping by my side. Though I love Ollie with all of my heart, there will always be a part of my heart missing; I believe Roscoe must have taken that piece of my heart (and part of my human's heart) with him when he went to the bridge. We have lost a lot of friends over the years, and though we miss them all dearly it makes me happy to think that they are celebrating today with Roscoe somewhere over the Rainbow Bridge.

The party is still going on over Gracie's. If you haven't been there, be sure to stop on by and join us in a slice of cake!

A beautiful massage chair to get the old bones a good rub. Thanks to my bestest buddy Karl and all of my friends at the Cat Realm!

Come join in on the fun! We will cutting the beautiful cake baked by the lovely Asta!

Sorry we didn't get by your blog to wish you a Happy Birthday. We are sure Charybdis was celebrating with Roscoe and that they were thinking of you. Scylla understands about your missing Roscoe (especially on your birthday), littermates have a special place in your heart.
