Feline, Feathers and Furball Friday: Happy Birthday Dylan And Hendrix

From For Ellipsis

My boys turned 1 year old yesterday! We don't know the actual day they were born, but Dr. B. guessed they were about 8 weeks old when they found their way to us, by way of their wonderful Foster Mother, Ms. K. . Well, we brought Hendrix home on October 27th, and Dylan on November 6th, so we chose September 3rd as their official birthday!


These two boys are our pride and joy! Dylan is shy and wily, Hendrix is goofy and playful. They couldn't be more different, and yet they get along as if they came from the same litter. They are brothers till the end! Completely devoted to each other, and loyal to Alan and I. Hendrix is my little dreamboat. He loves hugs, and quite often comes and asks to be held. Dylan isn't much for hugs, but every night at around 9 o'clock he lays down beside us, on his back, and asks us to rub his tummy. :) He is so soft. Can you tell that I am completely in love. Oh, don't get me wrong, I am still missing my Elvis, even after almost a full year, but I love my little boys... oh boy... my big cat boys more and more everyday. I will always be grateful to the universe for sending me my fellas... Alan included!

And now... scenes from the 1st birthday party of Dylan and Hendrix...

Awwwwwwh. I love these pictures of the big guys, and they seem very excited about the cake, particularly that rascal Hendrix. You are truly blessed and of course God knew it would take two snugglefurs to take the place of one Elvis cuz of his great spirit! I am so happy for you and glad you share your delightful fellas with all of us.

Happy Birthday wishes :D

Happy Birthday Dylan and Hendrix! Amazing how big they have gotten and that cake looks just so very yummy. By the way, the picture of Hendrix as a baby in the sweater with the leaves is one of my favorite that I have ever seen. Have a great weekend!
