First birthday

Yesterday, we believe, was the first birthday of Grace's babies - Audace, Ruse, Marigold, and Brutus. If it's not the exact day, it's pretty darned close!

A new pot of kitty grass was the best present of all. There were also times of play with Austen - in the bathroom with the water dripping in the sink. What cats could resist something THAT much fun! Grace had to help them, of course, and then afterward, they had to wash up!

Then last evening, for the first time in a long while, all three were snoozing together. (Usually Grace and Ruse are together, and Audace is somewhere nearby.) This seemed like an appropriate photo - snoozing together, but not as they were a year ago!

Happy birthday, everyone.

ADDITION: Here's a link to this morning's Monday Movie - Audace playing with the roll-y toy ... as long as he thought no one was watching!

Hope you had a wonderful purrfday. Thank you furr coming to visit us. We think Audace looks a lot like Flynn, and Ruse looks a lot like Eric.We may be mistaken but we think someone visited our blog before (may have been you) and told us how alike we all are. We will add you to our links so we can visit you again.

What a beautiful family photo! I'm lucky -- I don't ever have to worry about my mom forgetting me, because I only had a bean mom from the time I was one day old -- and I know she'll NEVER forget me, 'cause I sit on her all the time!

Momma Grace, YOU are obviously more fun than any cat toy!
