Happy Birthday, Big Dan

Today is Big Dan’s birthday. He is now officially one year old. When we first rescued him from the outdoors and brought him inside all bedraggled and wet, he was sick and didn’t even want to play. We weren’t sure he’d even live. After a week or two of doctoring, he started to perk up and make himself at home indoors. After another month or so, Big Dan was the Man of the House!Big Dan

As a cat, of course his favorite pastime is napping, but as a boy, his other favorites include tormenting the girls, and getting into things. Always busy, and always thinking, you can see his mind working on what he’s going to get into next. If breakfast is late, he spends his time cleaning while waiting. As in . . . cleans off the top of the dresser, cleans off the nightstand, cleans off the kitchen table . . .

He does spend a big portion of his time giving us plenty of love and attention (too much sometimes). He loves being where his people are, and keeps a pretty close eye on us and what we’re doing. He sure has grown from the scraggly little kitten he was into quite the man’s man. He has his own favorite spot on the couch and loves to watch John Wayne in “The Cowboys”. It’s the only movie he watches, but when it’s on, don’t interrupt him. Happy Birthday Big Dan

In spite of near-daily threats to make him an outdoor cat after having to clean up yet another mess he’s made, I think he’s wormed his way far enough into our hearts that he’ll remain the Man of the House as long as he wants to.
