Gus at 15

While the day is not certain, Gus has turned 15 years old officially.  Happy Birthday, Old Fellow!  Here he enjoys his birthday dinner.

This starts off a month or so off anniversaries – some happy and some sad.  From now to April 15 we have Gus’ birthday, my birthday, my cat Cassie’s birthday and the dates of the deaths of my cats Cassie and Angie at 20 and 12. Oh and my blogiversary, too.

For twelve years my two cats were Cassie and Angie, then over a 5 year period it became Gus and Julius for 8 more until I added Calpurnia.  But in a way the two boys carry forward the memory of the two girls I had all those years still.

Here is a shot from 2002 when Gus and Julius were just being introduced on Julie’s first day.  Julie is pretty oblivious here, but there was a funny moment when Gus gave him a hiss and Julie puffed up and stood his ground.

And here is the not-so-old fellow in 2003.  He’s a little less able to maintain the fluff these days, but otherwise still holding up well.

Happy fifteen. old fellow.

    What is kind of funny is that I know a boy named Gus…who is 15…so when I first saw this title in my reader I was quite confused!!

    I sure hope my purr babies live as long.
