Happy birthday, fur-face

Bascove-cat with books
I don't know the exact date, what with him being a shelter kitty and all, but when I adopted Nemo they thought he'd been born the last week of September. So figuring that this is close enough, I would like to wish our bozo-boy a very happy birthday. And considering he's turning 18, I'd like to wish him many more, as many as possible.

He was about 11 months old when this photo was taken.

Up a tree in the back yard of the first place I lived when I moved to Oakland. (No, I knew nothing about Oakland neighborhoods when I rented it. Why do you ask? *sigh*)

The yard was the best thing about that place.

Zazen with cat
He helps me meditate almost every morning. Occasionally he'll sit with the monkey instead. But he almost always sits with one of us.

Nemo helping me exercise
He also helps me do my Egoscue exercises. Here he is in his usual position, lying a few feet away and purring loudly.

He's looking pretty good and doing remarkably well, considering that in human years he's like 125 years old or so. And I am profoundly grateful for every day he chooses to stick around with us.

Happy birthday, viejo.

happy birthday, little Nemo kitty... kitties seem to get finer with age.

He certainly is a handsome boy, and quite a bit thinner than I remember him. May he live long and prosper.

He has always been a fine gentleman. Happy Birthday, Nemo!
