Happy Birthday Dexter and Dee Dee!

Today, September 6th, is the birthday of the two "Originals", Dexter and Dee Dee. As brother and sister from the same litter, they both turn 7 years old today! [photo at left taken by Hubby]

We love them both so very much that it's hard to remember life before Dexter and Dee Dee were a part of it. They are such loyal little companions that we often joke that they are "dogs in cat-suits".

Each chose their human very early on in life. Dexter chose me as his human, while Dee Dee chose Hubby as her human. Still, they are both equal opportunity kitties when it comes to being lovable to both of us.

As a special birthday tribute, we share some favorite photos of them both as kittens and as grown-up kitties. Happy Birthday!

  1. Hi Cindy, I love these photos. Your cats are beautiful. I have only 1 called Abbey, a female tortoise shell, which I love. They are wonderful companions:) We have 2 Hungarian vizslas (dogs) also & fish! so we can't go away without a house-sitter staying here usually my Mum :) I really enjoy your blog. I will have to have a closer look & visit all your links etc.

    I hope the fires are put out successfully. We get terrible bush fires here in Australia, luckily my family haven't been through that devastation.

    Best wishes & Happy birthday Dexter & Dee Dee,

  10. I love your kitties! Dexter looks a lot like my kitty, Mick, who we got when he was far too young and had to be fed out of an eye dropper and then a bottle. He's 14 lbs. now - and a big boy, but very loving! Thanks for introducing us to your kitty family!
