Happy Birthday Chai Latte

Happy Birthday

Chai Latte is a found cat who adopted us in October last year. Consequently we don’t know her exact birthday, but August 20th was the vet’s guess. Anyway, it’s close enough to celebrate, so I cooked her a salmon fillet, stuck a candle in it, and we sang Happy Birthday.



We needed this cat. I start almost every morning with a snuggle and mutual admiration session, which improves my day enormously. You might possibly have noticed that she still gets photographed a lot and blogged about a lot. She’s intelligent and quirky, like the rest of the family.

Her eyes are still a lovely blue although the ginger and cinnamon markings got quite a bit darker. She’s also kept most of her expression of injured innocence which can be very misleading.

I really hope there’ll be many happy returns.

My how she’s grown!
