Happy Birthday Dobby!

My youngest cat, Dobby, turns two this month.  Not entirely sure when in October is his actual birthday as he was a "rescue" kitten that came to me via my local vet.

Now that Dobby has turned two he has calmed down a bit...not more getting stuck in trees, or on the roof, or behind the refrigerator....

He weighs in at over 15 pounds but there isn't an ounce of fat on him...

He isn't the type of cat to "cuddle" but he takes his role as "head of the pride" seriously and even as a young cat when I was sick in bed one day he brought his toys to me and even made a small pile of dry cat foot next to my pillow.....

He isn't quite the "ham" that my other cats are so there are fewer photos to chose from...
If Dobby were a quilt it would be circa 1900 done in plaids and stripes....

Maybe like this Sugar loaf....

Such a cute kitten and now a handsome big guy. Dobby has obviously found the best home. What a sweetheart to bring you toys and food. Happy Birthday, Dobby. We love you!

Dobby looks very dapper. I can see the vintage plaids and stripes describing him well.

i've loved Dobby from the start - but he is so much more handsome now that he has grown into his ears!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe Dobby is 2 already! Where does time go?? It sounds like he has such a sweet heart, to look after you when you're sick like that. How darling!

What a charming cat-quilt analysis! Dobby is "seriously" cute, still. Happy Birthday!

I love that he bought you cat food...adorable!

If Dobby were a quilt, he'd be a favorite of mine for sure! ...and I'm so glad no more getting stuck in trees. That was one heck of an experience.
