Well, now it’s my turn. I, too, have a birthday – tomorrow, in fact. But I won’t tell you how old I am. A lady never reveals her true age and I am nothing if not a lady.
My Human says Breeding always shows and I have Breeding.
Would you not agree?
Besides which, if you look at my forehead, you can see the M which, as everyone knows, is the mark of a true Tigger Princess, as She is always telling me.
Now, to get back to the subject at hand, tomorrow, as I said, is my birthday. I have been given to understand that in France, they celebrate Mon Anniversaire with fireworks and street parties and even military parades. That is, of course, very right and proper although personally, I would prefer something quieter and more intimate, something en famille, as it were. My Human understands this. It took a few years to train her properly but the effort paid off in the end. At my age, (which, as I said, is classified information) you really start to appreciate the importance of the Family Circle. I don’t want to go gadding about, nor do I want a big, expensive party with lots of guests I hardly know and don’t care about. Just my Human and Possum and Moi.
What’s that you say? Presents?
Well, of course, any little gift will be greatly appreciated .
Party games? Of course.
I like to play "Catch" – as long as I’m "It".
Well, I’m going to go to sleep now. Somehow, that always seems to make my birthday come more quickly. Besides which, I need to conserve my strength. Tomorrow, we’re going to PARTY.
See you all domani, when I’ll be – oops, almost let slip how old I am.
Good night. Bon nuit. לילה טוב.
