Happy Birthday to Star

Today is Star’s birthday. She is a Halloween kitty in every sense of the word. (She has a new costume for this year, but since I am in Panama and my sweetie is on a long shoot, we might not get to see her in it until I get back!)

Star is 11 years old today!

We love you Star! Happy birthday, kitty. Happy Halloween!

XOXO

Yoda Kitty

About a month ago, we saw this news article online and bookmarked it to mention it at some point. But you know how it is in the weeks leading up to a wedding…

There is a cat, with four ears, living in a Chicago suburb with a very nice family, the Rocks. The Rocks saved him — Yoda — from a life of misery in a bar. He was 8 weeks old in 2006 when they went to watch a Chicago Bears game in this bar and saw that the patrons called him “Devil Cat” and “Beelzebub.”

He was also kept in a cage at the top of the bar to entertain the customers. So the Rocks adopted him.

You may be wondering what this has to do with our wedding blog? Star, as many of you know, was our honorary flower girl at the wedding.

And she often pulls her “Yoda Kitty” stunt when we have returned from a long trip. She flattens her ears in such a way so that they point out to either side, resembling Yoda. She does this move and meows in such a way that is clearly says, “Where have you been!?” It’s all we can do to not laugh.

However, looking at this picture of Yoda the cat, I can’t help but also be reminded of Star’s favorite Halloween costume, the devil kitty.

Halloween also happens to fall on Star’s birthday, so it’s a pretty special day all around. And we think she is the best looking cat around.

XOXO

New Addition to the Family!

April 1, 2008

Hi everyone! We have some very exciting news to share with all of you!!

Since we are finally engaged and on our way to a wedding (going through the whirlwind as you already know), we’ve also been thinking about adding to our family for quite some time. We would have done it sooner, but were worried about our Star-cat. We thought about it long and hard and now that she’s about 10 years old, we think it’s time. It’s finally about time to get her acclimated to another presence in the house, so we got a new pet.

I know some of you may have just been thinking a baby! Well, sorry to disappoint you, but we are having a baby of our own kind – another animal.

We’d like to introduce you to Rocky, and have included his picture below. We always thought Star would do well with a baby brother. He’s half cat, half squirrel. We figured this would be so much easier since she would only have to acclimate halfway…

Isn’t he cute?

Rocky the Squirrel Cat

We love him lots! We hope you do, too.

XOXO

P.S. Happy April Fools’ Day!!
