BFF and a birthday.

Wilhelmina and Mia, " We have matching beaded collars! They were one of our birthday gifts from LP and we love them! Speaking of birthdays, we wanted to wish LP a Happy Birthday! Her birthday was on Saturday but she intends to celebrate all week. She says she doesn't count the years anymore, she simply celebrates longer!"

This is LP's favourite cake. It is a sponge cake with whipped cream, fruit and a chestnut filling. Mia's Mama bought it for her. Thank you Mia's Mama! Please help yourself to a piece, all of you :)

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Shi or Foo Dog.

*Click on photos to enlarge them."

 Wilhelmina, " I just came back from the groomer's and LP laughed and laughed and laughed when she saw the bows in my furs!"

 Wilhelmina, " How rude!"

 Wilhelmina, " Between her unbecoming chortles, she claims I look just like a Chinese Guardian Lion known as a Shi."

 Wilhelmina, " In the west, a Chinese Guardian Lion is referred to as a Foo Dog."

 Wilhelmina the Chinese Guardian Lion or Foo Dog. Guarding.

 Guarding with humour.

 Wilhelmina, " I don't know how those Foo Dog statues do it! I need a nap now. All that guarding was exhausting!"

Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you soon.

Esme , an older kitty.

Esme, " A lady should never tell her age. Why not I ask? ! I'm a lady and I am eleven years old! There. I told you my age and nothing significant happened other than you now know my age!"

Esme, "Uh , oh! I just thought of something! Does being eleven years old make me a senior kitty with a few less lives to live?!"

Esme, "I think not!"

Esme, "I am a lady and a lady has no age!"

Esme, " Hmmm. I believe I am back to where I started! Darn it all! Now I am beginning to have age telling remorse. "

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.
