happy birthday, liam!
today we celebrate another 8th birthday. liam is definitely the jester of the house hold, so it is only perfect that he was born on april fools day!
in the spring of 2005, i lost my first cat, my best friend. he was a 17 yr old tuxedo named disney. not only was he my first cat, he was my first pet ever. he had the most wonderful disposition and we grew up together. this cat was with me since i was 2 yrs old, was with me all through grade school, high school,my dad passing away..and now i was about to graduate high school, and he left. the last day i saw him, he kept throwing up and my mom put him out on the patio to get some air. our patio was closed in, but somehow he got out..i still don't know how. he was a realll fat cat who could barely jump. i never found him. i was so upset.
even though he was gone and i still had soley, mittens and honey (our other cats), but i wanted a replacement disney. i wanted another tuxedo.
sam was friends with this girl who's cat just had kittens. i remember going over to her back yard and chasing the kittens and i saw a little tuxedo and that was it! she was mine..and yes i said she because originally her name was ella, until the vet informed me that i had a boy kitten on my hands. i picked the name liam for him. mom advised though, she said "The only boys I have ever known with the name Liam, were bad boys."
hahah. liam is SO fresh. he's pretty much the opposite of disney. the only thing they have in common besides their coloring, is their weight. he's one FAT cat. liam chases soley and honey. he swats the dogs..the dogs are afraid of him. he eats pictures and clothing. he likes to plank on couches and your arms when you're trying to type or read.
we love him anyway. he's a bad boy but i absolutely adore squeezing the meows out of him with kisses.
cheers to you, liam cat!
