Birds of a Feather

Yes, time flies — and those of us, ahem, over a certain age know exactly just how fast. Seems every time I turn around another one of my animals has just turned another year older. Just this week Finnegan and Wink have traveled around the sun one more time.

maine coon cat Finnegan is 6 years old now — the longest I’ve had a cat live.  He tells me he’s going to live to be 17. I’m choosing to take him at his word.

Wink is 3 now. Hard to believe…

I really, really, really didn’t want a third dog when Cait made her plea–two was plenty.  Obviously, I caved. But now I couldn’t imagine life without this little guy. He is a complete joy.

Interesting, with their birthdays only a week apart, that these two have become inseparable friends.

When Wink was a puppy, he was so little that when he needed to rest, we put him in a playpen so Kiera and Graidy wouldn’t accidentally careen into him with their rough-housing.  Finn, from day one, would always jump in to keep him company. After all, what’s better than a little cat nap with a buddy?

But truth be told, this twosome is really a threesome.

Always has been.  Always will be.

Happy Birthday Finn!

Happy Birthday Wink!

Wishing you both many, many, many more.

  1. How sweet. Definitely reminds me of days past. Abbey (cockapoo) chose my daughter to buddy and often I would find her snuggled up with her at naps. And while Misty was definitely attached to me she and my middle son would have play time every night from 12 -1 am (he was a fast food closer in college) and when he moved out of state she thought I should get up and accommodate her play needs.

    • Ooh, don’t you just love being put on animal time! LOL! My Graidy has me on a 4am rising time. Some mornings, I gotta tell ya, it’s tough.

  2. Glad to see you back in the saddle. Have always enjoyed the mix of serious and silly. Good to know everyone is well. Happy Birthday Wink and Finn. But as an Aussie fan, I’m hoping there’s a Kiera post with pics soon.
