Four. That is a signifiCAT number. Today is the fourth day of the New Year...2009! This month, I will turn TEN years old! My made-up birthday is January 31, 1999. It's made-up because when my people adopted me, the vet said I was one year old, and they just went back one year to come up with a birthday for me. I can't remember being born...and I can't remember my first cat family, so that day works for me.

Four is also signifiCAT because I got tagged for the four-by-four photo tag game. Treater already played it, but she did not tag me. I guess she was being lazy. Tiria, The Shadow Princess, and Henry tagged me!

Here are the very easy rules:

1. Choose the 4th folder on your computer where you keep/store your pictures.
2. Select the 4th picture in the folder.
3. Explain the picture.
4. Tag 4 people to do the same! No cheating (cropping, editing, etc.)!

This picture of me was taken in 2004 - the fourth year that I lived with my people. I was five years old here. My people had just bought this big has all sorts of play-pretties in it, but I can't get to them because of the glass. The very back of this big cabinet has something called a "mirror." I'm not exactly sure what a mirror really is, but it has a CAT in it that keeps looking at me! I have tried talking to it, and I have tried to convince it to come out and play, but it just keeps looking at me.

It's still in that cabinet. I think it's probably hungry and thirsty because I never see it eat or drink...ever. It just always looks at me. It sure is a pretty cat. I'd sure love to have it as a playmate.

I'd like to tag this cat for this game, but I don't think it has any people who take pictures. I don't even think it has a computer or a dictation-taker. Poor cat.

Well, I looked around, and it looks like everyone else has played this game. If you haven't played, please consider yourself tagged!

Psssst...Tigs. You do realize that you were tagged, too, don't you? I'm gonna double-tag ya.

Miss Kitty, have you been tagged yet?

Well, while I'm at it, Junior and Orion, have you guys been tagged yet?

Anybody else?

Oh, by the way, I know I'm late, but Happy Mew Year to EveryCat!

Happy Mew Year to you too Spooky! Sounds like that cat would be a great playmate, maybe you should whap all that stuff out of the way so she can get out?

When I first moved in with the PM and the MM, they woke up the first night to me all puffed up on the bed, hissing and growling. The beast that was scaring me?

Me looking in the mirror. They got a good laugh but I almost lost a life there!!

Purrs and Happy New Year!

YOu look very cute looking at that other cat. We don't think we have been tagged so we will play this tomorrow!!! Thanks!!!

Miss Kitty, NFC said...

Hi Spookey! I hope you get to play with that cat in the mirror someday.

I have not been tagged for this....The Red Headed One played the game too, and did not tag me, but she never tags anybody anyway, she's such a rebel and doesn't follow the rules. She takes after me I guess!

Well, I will go looking and see if I even have a fourth folder and a fourth photo and let you know.

Miss Kitty

Happy New Year, and we hope you had a wonderful birthday! We hope you are able to get the cat in the cabinet to come out to play, or at least eat and drink!

We have large birdies at the Swamp that we will not mess with; egrets, herons, geese, etc. But here at the Orchard we have nice small birdies to watch; cardinals, blue jays, mourning doves. They are more our size!
