February 1 was Aremid’s 16th Birthday (observed). I didn’t do anything to observe it, but as far as he’s concerned, everyday is his birthday. As he gets older and frailer, he grows even more attached to me, and I give him even more attention. I’ve learned that 90% of his irritating, incessant meows are simply cries for attention. This is cat who longs to loved…all the time.
So what if he’s such a pain in the ass. He pees and poops in random places. He runs his nails down the wall when he’s stressed. His vet bills over the last few years have been ridiculous.
And yet, I will be devastated the day he is gone. I’ve spent nearly half of my life with this cat.
So, I will observe his birthday now. 16 pictures for 16 years.
