A very Happy Birthday.....

Friday evening we brought home a new family Suki, a sweet Burmese.

I didn't anticipate this....we were just returning something!

But when Dean brought her to my attention, I couldn't resist.
She has had a hard start to her young life but will be most loved with us.
She had a respiratory infection when they rescued her (still has it), then was spayed, then had a hernia from the spay surgery!
She still has some stitches but they don't seem to bother her.

They say she is about 2 years old but she is SO small...and still VERY playful. She weighs 8 pounds right now...about the size Leo was when he was 9-12 months old.

The dogs ignore her for the most part. They are mostly interested in her booty! Just like a dog! ha!

Leo seems to hate her right now but I don't think that will last. He will puff up and make those funny cat fight sounds. She just lays there looking at him. Leo can't stand all that starring so he high tails it outta there!
Being an indoor cat, he hasn't seen another cat since he was 7 weeks old!
I think his curiosity will win him over though.

See how blue her eyes are!
Sorry for the awful photo and the reflection but its the ONLY one that shows how blue her eyes are.

I don't know how to take a photo of her without getting those stupid red eyes!

The rest of my birthday was just as fun.
We went out to dinner so I could have a REAL margarita!
Then we came home for cake and ice cream and some fun gifts.

I couldn't resist smashing Rip stick Boy's face into my cake when he went to sniff it...

The cake was a little worse for it, but still tasted great!

After wards, a quick thunderstorm came up.
The rain was coming down so hard it was actually forced under the front door.
Now that is difficult since we have an 8 foot deep covered front porch!
It was actually hitting the fairy lights I have entwined into some grape vine around our front door!

A perfect ending to a perfect day!

What a lovely kitty! We have a Siamese that could almost be her twin, however, a much larger twin. He has been the best cat we've ever had. Congratulations on your new addition!

Have just discovered your blog and am enjoying it very much.

Happy Birthday! We also acquired a new kitty, Ms. Sophie, she would like to say hello to Ms Suki and welcome her also to blogland. Our dog Ms. Tipper is also trying to get use to having another family member in the house. So far they just ignore each other.

Hugs :)

So that's the b-day surprise! I was going down a whole different road, thinking maybe they got you a new sewing machine :-) She's a beautiful kitty and I'm sure she'll bring you many wonderful years on happiness. BTW, did you get that cake I sent you in the mail yet, LOL!

Awww! I love Suki!! How can anyone abandon these beautiful animals I'll never know. We have a pure Russian Blue who was our first foster cat, but we couldn't bare to part with her so ended up adopting her. Now we have 5 cats in the house!! 3 our own and 2 fostered. Leo will get used to her. In fact, I'll bet one day you'll take a pic for this very blog of them curled up together on the sofa. Happy belated Birthday!! Glad you had a good one, and again, what a gorgeous belated birthday present Suki is!!
