Happy Gotcha Day, Brainball!

*~*~*~*Happy Seventh Gotcha Day, Brainball!*~*~*~*

It seems like only yesturday to Momma that you turned up at her and Daddy's place seven years ago, aftur icky neighburs had abandoned you. Momma and Daddy were so happy to take you in! They loved you frum the beginning, and you were the first kitty they hadded togethur. You've brought so much joy to them, and to us, yur Ballicus siblings!

Here's one of the first pickshures Momma and Daddy tooked of you, back in 2001, with the goofy little kamera they had at the time:



Here's a pickshure of Brainball bein a sleepyhead, in 2003 (taken with a much bettur kamera!):



And here's Brainball in 2008! He just seems to get floofier and floofier.



Brainball, from alla us Ballicai and our beans: thankies fur bein the bestest big lion boy and Alpha Cat inna whole wide wurld, the bestest foundur we kould have fur the Ballicus Dynasty. Thankies fur bein Momma's snoopervisor who always looks aftur her, Daddy's buddy, and our brave, sweet, and strong protecktor kitty. We look forward to many more years with you!

And the beans wanna thank you fur bein so patient with em before they figured out you are a BOY (though us Ballicai knew the truth all along)!!!




And please join us in wishin a *~*~*~*Happy Purrthday to the Hotties!*~*~*~*
