Today is Athena’s birthday! Or, estimated birthday at least, according to the info we got when we adopted her.  Either way, my cuddly baby kitty is one year old, and it seems like a good excuse for an Athena picture extravaganza!

My very first picture of Athena!

So happy birthday to my blue-eyed half-Siamese darling! (Siamese cat love inspired by Lady and the Tramp and also The Cat Who… series.)

 

Kitty Cuddle Time! November 12, 2008

That’s what I call the hour every day after breakfast and before work, when I sit on the couch using my laptop and the kittens sleep on me. It might just be the best part of the day for all of us (although Athena might prefer the times when she tries to nest in my hair while I’m sleeping). In fact, it’s kitty cuddle time right now while I’m writing this, so it seems like a good time to post more kitty pictures!

I tried to get a picture of Athena sitting so that you can see her cute little mitten feet, but she has laser-eyes in the original:

Hypnotic Athena

And then when I tried to apply red-eye corrector to her, it turned her pretty blue eyes into creepy green/brown, so this doesn’t look like Athena very much at all:

not really Athena...

Hmmmm, I guess I need to find a green-eye corrector instead of a red-eye corrector!
