Today is Nels' 4th birthday, and for his birthday treat, he got to eat a bowl of tuna juice. He absolutely loved it!
I have had Nels for the past 34 months. When Annika and I adopted him from the Humane Society, we believed him to be 3 years old. Then when I took him to my veterinarian for his check-up, I was told he was 13 or 14 months old. They told me to choose a birthday for him, so I chose October 29th. Initially he was really too "kitten-like" for me—getting into everything, chewing electrical cords, and so on. But this last year, or even past half year, he has become a really nice pet. He loves curling up in my lap, and purrs and purrs. He still loves sleeping under the covers with me, and is so cozy. Happy Birthday, Nels! I love you.
