Happy 18th Birthday Jinx !!

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays  As you know, today is Jinx’s 18th birthday. I actually thought he was turning 17 until recently when I brought him to our new vet and saw that I had him neutered October 15, 2002 when he was about 4 months old so that makes him 18.  I used to be a tutor and he was living in a boat in the yard of where I was tutoring. The people wanted a cat, but not a black one and I wanted a black one so I adopted him. Of course his color didn’t matter, I would have taken him no matter what.

Time to party! By the way, everyone that comments will be automatically entered into a contest to win a $5 Amazon gift card. If you live in a country where you have to answer a question to enter, what is 1+1?

  I made Jinx a party hat. You can design one for yourself, for a free template from Ohhappyday blog. Click here

  Have some cake- Jinx will share.

  28. Charlee: “Happy big one-seven, Jinx!”
    Chaplin: “No, it’s big one-eight. Go take another look.”
    Charlee: “I saw that, but since we thought he was turning 17 last year, that means he never had a 17th birthday. So we have to get that one done first.”
    Chaplin: “Uh, I guess that makes sense …”
    Charlee: “Of course it does. Anyway, now that we said happy big one-seven … happy big one-eight, Jinx!”
    Chaplin: “But I already said that.”
    Charlee: “Yes, but it didn’t count when you did it, because you didn’t say big one-seven first.”

  29. Sorry were late, Jinx (It’s Mom’s fault). Hope you had a pawsome day,with lots of cuddles. Purrs, Snops and Kommando Kitty.
