BIG NEWS!

We interrupt this big announcement to say:



HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY TO THE GIRL! 

Yes, she is now legal, and the mom can no longer tease her by calling her a sub-adult, much to her relief we're sure.


At the hospital 21 years ago.
High school graduation. 





And now, a collich student, an excellent kitty playmate and real adult!









We hope you are successful and happy in all your endeavors!  Enjoy and always remember to stop and play with kitties, then you will always be happy.

And speaking of endeavors, it was The Girl's dream to be an equine {{shutter}} vet, much to the dismay of us kitties who can think of funner things to be, like catnip tester, cardboard shredder or kitty food specialist.  She is majoring in Equine Science and Management, and took a class in Equine Massage Therapy.  She loved it so much she took more classes in it and now she's a Certified Equine Massage Therapist!


The Girl couldn't be more thrilled!  She even has a couple patients already.  She feels she will be much happier being a massage therapist.  The horses will feel better, the owners will be happier and feel better, and then she will be happy because she helped unsound animals regain their lives.  And all the bad stuff that goes along with being a vet, like euthanasia, won't be her job.

Of course we kitties (and the mom) would love to test out her techniques and she always says yes, but its never happened!  What's up with that?!




The Girl would like to become certified in fitting saddles since poorly fitted saddles cause back problems and study acupressure (acupuncture must be done by a vet - ironic considering acupuncture doesn't have to be done by a medical doctor on humans).  But one thing at a time.


And if that wasn't enough good news, she has worked so hard in college that she will be graduating a semester early, next December instead of May 2014.  Woo hoo!  We hope that means she will be able to visit and play with us more often.


Happy Birthday, The Girl!  We love you and are so proud of you.

Happy birthday to The Girl and concatulations! We didn't know you could massage a horse.

We hope you had a talk with her after that photo where she put a ribbon on your head. We enforce a strict no-ribbon-sticking-on-head policy here after an Unfortunate Incident, and we highly recommend the policy to others.

A very Happy Birthday to the Girl. Hope she has a most wonderful day today. And good for her to work with horses and help them.

Happy Birthday to The Girl! My mom and I are also proud of her! Graduating college is such a wonderful and in a way, an honorable thing and she has chosen a field that I would imagine few are in yet, so she will be a blessing to her patients.

Wow! Such accomplishments! Whozhe is a colliche student too and it makes Mrs. Whatsername oddly happy/sad, like she keeps wondering where her kitten went. I'm sure The Girl's Mom feels the same way...
