The cat gets another year older



At least that's what I was told anyway.

I actually don't mind the birthday.  It just means I'm still here and kickin right?  And by the outpouring of love that was shown to me, it also reminds me that I am a very lucky and blessed mCat.

My cake.  Perfect isn't it?  No frosting and just a little tiny bit.  Makes it easy to enjoy!

Flowers from my VT's.  Thanks Ann and Melinda!

Treat from good friend and neighbor delivered by a couple of cute YW!  Thanks Carina and Janae and Jewel

One of the most thoughtful gestures......

Debbi studied up on GP, learned what I can eat and how I can best get nutrition (6 small meals).  She packed them all in individual containers all labeled "You can do it!"
Thanks Debbi!

Oh my gosh!  A beautiful shelf to display all my medals!!  And look at those Diva's!

Funny cards from Tiburon
I find it fitting that my BD always falls on Shark week- one more tie that binds us!

And a gift card to my new favorite clothes store!!!!  Thanks Tib! (she knows I no longer have anything that fits...)

Tuffy and 'Tana know how to take care of me - skittles, m&m's, crystal light, Monsters, and a gift card to Starbucks.  You know they have these frappe's and latte's there that are freakin LOADED with calories.  
Thanks kids!!

Of course my all time favorite moment(s) were when Chloee skyped and sang Happy Birthday to me (three times!) and showed me the cute card that she drew and made for me (shoulda snapped a pic)

So, I know I am late in expressing my thanks and appreciation but really....

Thank you to everyone who made my day special with a call, text, FB message, emails and every other communication way you can think of.

I really do have the best friends and family that a lil ole mCat could ask for!

What a great bunch of friends you have! And did I say Happy Birthday to you? You know I totally meant to... I'm jealous of all your sugary, calorie-laden treats - while I'm eating my cup of raw edamame... MMMmmmm. I love your friend that made you little meals - now THAT was thoughtful!
I hope you're feeling good, just like a birthday girl should, and that your body will begin to cooperate little by little. Or overnight, whatever it's pleasure. And I want to find that "Sisters" cared. Loved that one.

Happy Birthday, M-Cat! I don't know if you remember me, but if you do, I'm home, alive, and kicking! Sorry to hear about all your "fun" troubles. Just means you can handle it, right?

You rock my socks, lady!
