It’s official – Duck is no longer a kitten. Today is his very first birthday.
It really doesn’t seem like a whole year since that yellow trouble-maker came to me, and at the same time he seems so far from that half-pound kitten who I was sure I was going to find dead one morning. He still gets diarrhea on a regular basis, but he’s healthy, clean, and beautiful now.
We got Duck a piece of cat furniture for his birthday. I believe we got a cat tree for the other three on their first birthdays, so I guess it’s tradition. Duck loves the new scratching surface. The raised part in the back has a toy dangling from it, and Duck spent hours licking it and swatting at it.
He even shared his new toy with Buttercup. What a good kid!
Here’s hoping for many more happy birthdays with my fluffy baby boy!
