11-OCT-2010 Walter O. Koenig

October 11


It is my birthday today, and I had hoped to sleep in just a little.
Diego had other ideas however, and he woke me up at 4:50 a.m. not to wish me a Happy Birthday, but for his breakfast.
He's a very good cat and a loyal companion, so I didn't really mind that much, even when he was reluctant to sit for his portrait later.
I believe real friendship is when you accept your friends as they are, even if they sometimes do things that you prefer they wouldn't do.

Happy belated birthday, Walter! Despite the early wake up I hope you had a great day. Diego has a perfect no-care cat attitude here :)

Happy Birthday Walter, i hope you have a lovely day.
Diego will ensure that it is i'm sure.
Pussy Cats bring sooo much pleasure, even if they do keep such odd hours.
