THANK YOU from Schooner, on his Birthday (March 1, 2010)


Dear Friends:

Today is my 17th Birthday. I knew it would be a special day, but I had no idea how special.

When we logged in this morning, we found many, many affectionate messages! For me, on my day!

Turns out, my birthday had been announced on the Cat Blogosphere.

I am going to write back to everyone who wrote me, but meanwhile, I have added all of your websites to the list of "Our Friends," in the right-hand column.


 Some of you know that I only came to live with Pat and Henry and the other Cats, in November, 2008. I'm lucky to be here, because, as I have already explained on my Vivapets webpage, my original owners didn't want me any more. That made me sad.

But now I am much loved, and that makes me very Happy!

Here is the portrait Pat took of me today:


I love you all . . .

Sincerely,

SCHOON


P.S:  Pat wants me to mention that we have found lots of helpful information on Tanya's Feline CRF Information Centre - THANKS, Tanya, for making my life better!

Our Beans had a day in Charlottetown when they were on a cruise from Quebec to NY, and they liked it very much. They went to Anne of Green Gables and walked along some trails there and saw Beaver dams, and also to Cavendish Beach.

ABBY said...

Schooner
I did visit your other website and I was sadden about your former dare I say owners...but you know what? I had two sets of former owners that did not want me. One told the rescue group that took me in to leave me behind the pet store if no one adopted me. HE did not want me back. Well you know what? The best thing in the world happened to me. MY true Momma came along and took me home, that was 5 years ago and I now know the true meaning of unconditional love as I know you do too. Happy #17 and we wish you many many more....
