Well, the little fuzzball is approximately six years old. He was about two when I got him.
He's changed a bit. He's a bit more laid back, not quite as skinny. I miss the zoomies he used to get. He still gets them, but they're not the same as they used to be. He still loves to run around outside. Little guy really needs a big, open, but enclosed, space to run around in. Too bad we don't have one.
And as far as not being as skinny, I think this is both due to his frame having filled out a bit more and the fact that he gets more table scraps than he used to. Cookie was our main scrap eater, but since she died Treader wanted to take her place. And of course he can't eat nearly as much as she could. I'm having to adjust the size of his meals as we go to avoid more weightgain (and he is on a diet as well), and he only gets a few scraps.
I had actually forgotten it was his birthday until I got the e-mail from Dogster. I had planned to buy him some rabbit from the grocery store as his birthday present. Looks like he'll be getting that a day or two late this year. I'll also get him a frozen feeder mouse in case he doesn't like the rabbit.
Happy birthday, you fuzzy goofball!
