Happy 13th Birthday, Pimp!

Today is a very special day... It's Pimp's 13th birthday! Can you believe my little man is so grown up?

It seems like just yesterday that I picked him out of a cardboard box on a street corner in Gainesville, Florida and took him home. Time flies when you have a cat!

Fittingly, the whole country celebrates his birthday. Everyone gets off work and gets together with friend and barbecues and all that good stuff. And rightly so! Pimp is a cat worth celebrating!

Meanwhile, back at home, Pimp had a fun present waiting for him! When I was at BlogPaws last weekend, I won a really pawsome Catpod in the Moderncat Catification Lounge. I couldn't fit it in my suitcase (obviously!) so I shipped it home. It just arrived a few days ago and I decided to wait to give it to Pimp for his birthday!

I'm posing nice, Mom. Now can I go check it out?
Holy cat! You could fit a whole cat in there!
I don't know... Should I go in?
At this point, I put decided I had to put a little catnip in there to entice him. He wanted to go in, but he's just a big chicken when it comes to new stuff! I know he'll be in there in an hour when I'm not looking...

Licking his chops after (barely) going in to sniff the nip. 
Later, though, as expected, he was right in there sniffing away at the nip! I'm sure he'll be scratching away at it in no time. Pimp is a sucker for cardboard scratchers!

In related news, I have informed Pimp that he's living forever, so we have many, many more of these great birthdays ahead. We hope you guys keep coming by to celebrate all of them!

Let's pretend his birthday card is the comments... Everyone wish Pimp a happy birthday!

  14. Dorian, you should put up some baby pictures of Pimp so we can see how he grew up through the years. I'd love to see a lot more of him (and Moo!) Happy Birthday Pimp!

  15. I'll have to scan some! He was born before digital cameras were big, so unfortunately I don't have easy access to his baby pictures. I do have some though! Search "baby pimp" in the search bar up top, you'll find my favorite one! :)

  23. We're going to wait to teach him to drive... I told him that since he's one of the few of his friends who is getting old enough, he'd always be stuck as the DD and have to watch his NIP consumption.

  24. His ears and paws were HUGE when he was little! He grew into them. :)
