On Thursday, we had a quiet celebration here in Newtopia to mark the momentous occasion of Newt’s 10th birthday.
Yes, everybody’s favorite Spotted Schnookums is now TEN YEARS OLD! (That warrants shouting, don’t you agree?)
Both a 1 and a 0 candle were stuck onto a freshly-roasted chicken, and Newt was given brief, unfettered access to gobble at will.
And gobble he did! The accompanying slice of key lime pie and tiny ice cream cone merely served as footstools upon which his paws could be placed for easier access to his beloved chicken. Altho, he did eat some of his pie for a later after snack.)
He nestled into his new bed after playing with his other nine presents.
We are still looking for a decent picture to post – we were laughing so hard at Newt’s “Ferocious Hungry Little Lion Devouring Chicken Attack” that the camera kept shaking!
We are still marveling that our tiny, “going to die any day” kitten baby has reached this major milestone. Many thanks to all of his care team, and to his friends around the world, for sharing this journey.
Happy birthday, Newt. We love you.
