My 50th post: Dedicated to Heidi

It's my 50th post! I've been blogging since August last year, so it's taken me a while to get here. I love blogging; I'm so glad I started. I've made so many friends from around the world and you've all had the chance to get to know me a bit... it's great! Thanks, everycat, for your comments and encouragement.

Anyway, I'm dedicating this post to Heidi, one of the two young ladies who adopted me as a kitten and lived with me until I was 2 (when I went to live with Kate). Heidi got married last month in Seattle, Wa, to a fine young man called Amos:
Isn't she pretty? She's been living in Indonesia teaching English for a few years, so it's been ages since I've seen her. I couldn't get to her wedding, but I sent her a great gift. It was a picture of me, the most sultry and manly mancat picture I could find, which I got Kate to have made into a jigsaw puzzle. We broke it up into its pieces and put the pieces in a pretty little bag. Here's the picture we used:

Heidi was nice enough to send me a thankyou card, a wedding picture and a newsletter. Here I am checking them out:
Amos is a Christian missionary pilot on the island of Yap in Micronesia. Heidi and Amos will be going back to Yap as soon as Amos has finished racking up some flying hours stateside. Who knows when I'll get to meet him? I'm glad I don't have to live on Yap with Heidi because:
1) It would take a million plane rides to get there, and as I've said previously, cats were never meant to fly.
2) Yap sounds like an island where lots of noisy little dogs live. I hate noisy little dogs.
3) Heidi used to mix rice with my cat food. Ew! I hate rice.
4) Heidi used to dance around with me while singing ABBA songs. I hate ABBA. (Many people blame my current neuroses on these ABBA experiences in my formative years.)

Anyway, congratulations Heidi and Amos! Come and visit me sometime... but don't expect me to visit you.

Congratulations on your 50th post! I think Heidi is very beautiful.

How pretty Heidi is! But I agree, Yap sounds like a place for little D.O.G.'s!

I think Heidi is very pretty and lucky to have a nice husband called Amos (Amos have a kiss daily - geddit - good name for newly weds). Yap does sound like a weird place to live and I know you would never want to leave Kate. Your pal FAZ

Oh, Pablo, thank you for coming to check on me and Monica. We are back from our vacation and I'm going to post a picture or two just now. Your Heidi is very pretty. I can see what you mean about the Abba tunes. What was she thinking?!

Diamond said...

I think you are better to stay where you are now Pablo. No dogs and no yapping and no rice. Try sitting on a lap. It is warm.

Monica said...

Pablo, I tagged you for a new game called True Confessions. You can find out about it on my blog.

Is that what caused your trauma in childhood pabsy?? Was it the ABBA?? ARe you sure it wasn't the playing the Beasty boys while vaccumming, or skunk anansie while studying...

Merely the ABBA?!!
I had no idea!

Pablo said...

I can handle the Beastie Boys and Skunk Anansie, Amy... but I'm like Nick. I hate being sung AT in the way that girls sing AT you when they sing ABBA songs. It's like being in a musical. No thanks!!Kate tries it on sometimes (not with ABBA, but with other mushy love songs) but I soon put the bitey on her. She knows better.
