Happy Burfday, Dorydoo!

Dorydoo's four years old today. Momma sez that's furry hard to believe, that the years have gone by so fast. She still calls Dorydoo Little Kittenhead (Dorydoo's the only one of us Ballicai who camed to Momma and Daddy as a little kitten).

She's beeyootiful, feisty, and ackrobatic, and though alla us Ballicai are smart, Momma sez Dorydoo's the smartest kitty she's efur known. Dorydoo can figure anything out. She opens containers and cabinets and doors, and if she had opposable thumbsies, she'd take ofur the wurld.

Here's Dorydoo at eight weeks old:





And here she is at nine weeks old, on Momma's lap, touchin paws with Brainball fur the first time (Momma was cryin happy tears when she tooked that pic):




And here's Dorydoo at three months old (as you can see, she and Brainball have bekome bestest furriends, they have adored each othur since, and Brainball helped the beans raise Dorydoo -- whatta great roll model, and lookit that protecktive big paw of his):






Here she is at four months old:



And here she is at five months old:



Here's Dorydoo is at six months old (wowie, she's lookin more growed up!):



And here she is at nine months old:



Here's Dorydoo at one year old, an official Ladycat, hangin out with Brainball onna perchie:



And here she is at two years old:



Here's Dorydoo last year, when she was three, givin Momma the raspberry:




And here's a video of Dorydoo, at four years old, gettin wacky with Momma's footsie! She loves the smell of Momma's foot loshun (beeswax and lanolin) and can smell it efun when Momma's wearin two pairs of socks. It makes Dorydoo act like she's on catnip! Isn't she a funny gurl?





Happy Burfday, Dorydoo! We're so glad yur a Ballicus. You are preshus and sweet and soft and loveable and beeyootiful. You are our little gurl with the great big purr, and Momma and Daddy and alla us Ballicai love you furry furry furry much!

We Ballicai gotted a wunnerful awardie from our furriends at Forever Foster! Thankies so much. We are furry honored!
