Best Birthday Gift Ever


Yesterday was my birthday, not something I would normally advertise, but I will in this case for having received the best gift ever - my Sinbad is still with me.  I honestly felt he would not be when my birthday came.  In fact he's been his normal self ever since coming home from the vet last week after being diagnosed with early stages of kidney failure.  I cannot believe this special prescription food he's been eating is responsible but I am a believer for the time it has given to us.
Every day has been a gift.

My wife made me an apple birthday pie.

Congratulations with your birthday, I remember we both had birthdays in the same week, mine was wednesday. So glad to hear Sinbad is doing well so far, he looks very comfortable. The special food can really help him. We had a kitty who reached the age of 18 years with it. The applecake is made so wonderful, your wife is a real artist!

To see Sinbad so alert on your birthday is indeed great and also the topping of the apple pie with the little Sinbad inside. Hope you got a lot more of those happy occasions.

Well done, both Sinbad and you, for making it through another year. Enjoy that pie - if it hasn't gone already.
