Since this week’s Photo Hunt theme is “Six,” I thought I’d feature some photos from my sixth birthday in 2008 (my eighth birthday will be in a few days, on June 24). That was a strange year. My human gave me this weird birthday gift called an “Enchanted Palace.” As you can tell, I was a little confused by it at first!
Seriously, does this look like a cat toy to you?
Even so, I was oddly… enchanted by it.
So imagine my shock when I found out my human wanted to take it away from me! It turned out that she was really going to give it to her boyfriend’s niece, and she was just using it temporarily as a photo op for me! Can you imagine? By the time I discovered this unpleasant bit of news, I had grown attached to the thing and napped by it frequently. In the end, my human didn’t have the heart to take it from me, and she had to go out and buy a second one for the niece.
I still have my Enchanted Palace — you can see it in the background of some of my photos.
