MacKenzie Speaks: The Mother of Cats Grows Old

This week there was a flurry of activity. The Mother of Cats seemed busier than usual, and we certainly got neglected. There was a lot of commotion and she seemed to leave us alone a lot of the time. She went to the dentist (great checkup, whatever that means), out to lunch with friends, and out to dinner with her son. Did she bring us anything? No!

She put us out in the yard while they took away the oxygen machine. Can you believe it? She has gotten so frisky that the doctor decided that she doesn’t need her oxygen any more. Yellow Boy and I are having trouble sleeping now that it is gone. I’m not sure she really is focused on our needs the way she needs to.

She was so excited about the oxygen leaving that she bought a cake with the inscription “Goodbye Oxygen” on it and took it to her knitting group to share. They must have known that the cake was coming because they had a card waiting to give her…

Card
Why are there no cats on this card?  Wait, what type of card is this?  Can this be a… Birthday Card?
Flowers
Oh. That explains why these flowers arrived from her sister. I thought that they were for me…
Yarn
Now that I think of it, she did say that this was her birthday yarn…
Books and Yarn
and her daughter-in-law bought her more birthday yarn. Look! It even matches the books that arrived at the library for her on her “special day”.

All this yarn, books and flowers are just crazy. She doesn’t need all of this special stuff. We don’t care that she is now an official senior citizen.

Mac and Me
We just care that she loves us.

Happy “You Got Old” Day, Mother of Cats. May you have many more.

Can I have a cookie now?

  1. Happy Birthday! Glad you had a good week. And,… what better way to celebrate than to ditch the O2. Very, very happy for you!
