We can't believe it, but today Tanji and Uschi are two years old! We have vivid and happy memories of visiting T & U in Seattle when they were only a few weeks old! We often talk about how lucky we were: finding Kelli and CNW in the first place, looking for kittens at the same time our little guys were born, meeting and falling for fabulous Uschi, and picking Tanji from his cute spotted brothers. Now two years later, both boys are remarkably similar to when we visited them at five-weeks and seven-weeks old: Uschi is still confident and independent, and loves to be the center of attention; Tanji is still an affectionate, playful wildman, who always wants to be close to us. They have given us two years of continual adventures and happiness, and we hope they are having a good time too.
and a helium balloon for a little supervised play...
"Happy Birthday to us!"
clip that weighs the balloon down.
"Oh boy, they got us a clip!" (silly bengals)
Vladi isn't too interested and leaves
the balloon to the birthday boys.
Tanji gazes longingly at the balloon.
But Tanji takes off, he wants to be a good boy.
Uschi grabs the balloon and we hear
a little "pop" followed by "Sssssssssss"
It took Uschi less than 15 minutes
to burst his balloon.
and a darker brown turtle brownie for Uschi.
Tanj and Usch used to love the pouched "cuts and gravy" food,
until they developed an "aversion" and the food was recalled.
This month the food is back, and as a treat we stocked up...
Wait a minute, where did Vladi come from?
It must be dinner time!
The boys settle in for a three-course dinner
by their busted Birthday balloon.
Happy Birthday T & U !
