Aunt Pauline's Early Birthday Foto Frenzy

Aunt Pauline's Early Birthday Foto Frenzy

This coming Wednesday Aunt Pauline has a very special birthday! I dunno if she wants that I should tell you which one but it's totally a big one. To help her celebrate, this Friday Flashback Foto Frenzy is dedicated to Aunt Pauline. She chose these numbers. Did you know she's the one who dubbed me stunning when TW first sent her my PetFinder page. I know she reads my blog faithfully. Aunt Pauline is a writer of science fiction and fantasy books, who's also won Muse Medallions™ from the Cat Writer's Association for her cat-themed fiction.

Kitten foto alert! #400 is out of order but it's from June 2007, one of the first foto sessions I sat for. I was not yet an internet cat but I was curled up in the middle of the dark wash waiting it's chance to go for a spin in that funny machine. A lot of stuff in this foto is gone—that particular litter box, the mat under the litter box, the wooden coat tree, the rug, my feather wand, TW's Winnie the Pooh pjs … Fortunately, I'm still here with no thought of leaving.

Thank you for your purchase indeed. I, however, was NOT that purchase. #7000 was one of eight fotos taken on the ipawd in March of last year. I was enjoying the box with the crinkly paper inside when the pawpawrazzi reared their ugly faces. TW liked that particular box cos one side of the box read "picked by hand, packed with LOVE" and the love of her life was inside the box. I just liked the crinkle paper. Although the rules of the Foto Frenzy say no editing, we did edit out the address on the box.

Foto #2777 from December 2012 has a great story. The night before this foto was taken, I was in the "powder room" with TW and I noticed she'd opened a new roll of toilet paper and thrown the wrapper on the floor. It crinkled and I was fascinated. The more I crinkled the paper, the harder TW laughed. Did I mention this was late at night when Pop was trying to sleep? She staged this reinactment the next day but I wasn't down wid it. Eventually, I did sit on the paper. Mostly I was wondering what it was doing on the rug. She should have recycled it.

Aunt Pauline has been TW's friend for over 40 years. Long before TW was on the interwebs or TNRs were around, Aunt Pauline always carried a bag of food and would stop by the park on the way to the subway she took to go to work and again on the home to feed the stray cats. She was the person who would find cats in boxes on her doorstep because neighbors knew she wouldn't turn them away. I know you'll join me in wishing her the bestest birthday ever!
