Happy 18th Birthday Nin! by Lee

Nin is just not himself without his morning tea!
Today my cat Cinder (more famously known as Nin) turns 18. I say he is my cat because he is the one I want to play with and hump. I am too afraid of Baggy to try things like that. Lady says I need to be extra gentle with my Nin now as he is getting old. She says she doesn't think he will see another birthday so we need to be nice and enjoy him now. 
To my Nin, Happy Birthday!

Nin for your birthday I will play with you (Nin is on the right)

Answers to some questions about Canada Day. Our Lady thinks it is a lot like what people do for the Fourth of July. We all get the day off and dress in red and white. We have BBQs and picnics. Some people drink too much beer. There are events in most towns. The biggest is in Ottawa which is where we use to live and close to us now. It is the capital of Canada and the entire downtown becomes a party. Streets close. There are musical performances. Lady says when you go, you are celebrating with 100 000 or more of your closest Canadian friends. There are fireworks.

What we did: Hated the fireworks that went off all weekend and just hung out at home. Some friends came to visit Sunday. On Canada Man and Lady tackled the yard work and we got to play outside a lot. It was a nice quiet day, minus the horrible fireworks.

We got lucky - Lady couldn't find her Canada hat so we didn't have to actually dress up! It made it a good holiday!

Have a great day everyone!


  1. Happy Birthday, Nin! That's quite a milestone!

  2. Glad you had a great day yesterday and the fireworks are over for another year. Happy birthday sweet Nin. We hope you have a nice quiet day with lots of treats. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. The frankenvet told our mom that mean ole cat dietzman who is 17 could live up to 25...that some cats live to be 30......we notice the summer heat is making dietzy kinda thin so we are also feeding him a little coconut oil to see if that helps him with his fur and ears. He always has an issue with ear mites.
    Happy Birthday Nin, you are a nice kitty to let those things happen to you, Dietzy would kill us if we attempt to come more than 5 feet from him.

  5. A very Happy Birthday to Nin! That's pawsome that you are going to play with him on his Birthday.

    Yes, your Canada Day is just like our July 4th. We too HATE the loud fireworks (Mommy leaves a radio on for us so we don't hear too much of them.)

    We're thinking that it is a GOOD thing that Mom couldn't find her Canada hat :)

  6. Happy Birthday Nin! Yup, sounds like Canada Day is about the same as our July 4th. We'll go to the parade, then to the festival in town for about 5 minutes (too hot for longer). Then back home to the A/C!

  13. What a great Canada Day! Your pawrents celebrated with YOU so you didn't have to brave the Fireworks alone AND they couldn't find any dressup hats--BONUS!!!
