Happy Birthday Rudy!

Happy 9th Birthday Rudy!
9 years ago today, Daddy had the pleasure of seeing you enter this world. Mommy was out of town on business and didn't meet you until the next day. Some of you may not know this, but Puff is his Mommy. She didn't get spayed in time after Mommy and Daddy adopted her and Powder. Here are Rudy's first photos - he's the one with the blue circle!

His other brother and sister were adopted to great homes. His brother's name is Leon and he lives in Kansas. His black and white sister's name is Precious and she lives in Oklahoma.


Once upon a time we got to go outside.


Enjoying the summer in Kansas City, 2003


Rudy and Diamond Puppy, 2002.



We want to thank Zoolatry for the great birthday graphic!
Rudy, you are a very good big brother to me, even though you try to steal my treats and chase me and sometimes try to put the bitey on me - I still love you! Here's a big Parker smooch from me to you!
SMOOOOOOOOOCH!

Rudy, We just had to come wish you a happy 9th birthday. That is so sweet of Parker to smooch her big brother, but then Parker is sweet and generous.

We like your "My feline pals on the innernets" list. Is that Blogroll? How did you get it set up with the blogger icons in front and how long ago the site was updated? That is so neat.
