International Gatsby Day!!

Today is Gatsby’s birthday.  He’s  12 years old! He doesn’t look a day over eight. (I don’t think that he’s had any work done but who knows?). Here’s pic of him today and a pic of him from when he was  a couple of months old.

 

Introducing…Nero and Magic!

So after Yoshi passed away my wife and I decided that we wouldn’t get a new cat for a few weeks or even months. We needed time to recover. So in true Smith family style, three days later we went to the local animal shelter and adopted two kittens! After all, it was National Cat Day!

Here’s Nero:

Gatsby is now a proud big brother!

"Wait, what? What have you people done?!?"

Happy Birthday, Yoshi!

Over the weekend we celebrated Yoshi’s fifteenth birthday. That may be kinda old for a cat but he looks good and he feels good so we’re looking forward to many more birthdays to come!
