Misha: my purrfect birthday.

Hhrrru? to all pets and peeps! 😻

This is Misha! How are you doing? What has happened in your life recently? Have you had anything very yummy to eat? I haven’t posted here in ages! Technology is stupid sometimes. There won’t be a new episode of The Human Life of Misha Hhrrru? today, I’d just like to ramble a bit.

It was my birthday last week, on January 30. I’m four now. It’s like 32 in human years, but my peeps still treat me like a little baby. It’s both cool and annoying. Sometimes you’d like just to be taken seriously and not like you’re a total idiot who doesn’t understand normal language and everything must be explained to him, and sometimes it’s not even worth it to explain anything because he has water instead of brain so whatever you’ll say will leak out anyway. Sometimes I’d much prefer if they considered that maybe I am not just a charming little thing but that I can also think and they can talk to me normally even though I am smaller than them, and that I also have my own opinions on things. They are incredibly bossy because for them, you can only be considered smart or clever when you do what they want from you. If you don’t, they will think you don’t understand anything and are stupid. While I think it’s the other way around. You’re clever when you have enough free will to be able to do what you want to do yourself and come up with fun things you want to do. Even when someone tells you what to do, it is you who decides whether you will do it or not, how, and when. Jocky is much more clever in their opinion than I am, but I think he’s just brainwashed. I think they also think that I’m stupid and childish because I am so small. I would like to be bigger and fatter. I like being a Russian blue, but sometimes I think I’d like to be a Maine coon more! My peeps are crazy about Maine coons, so much so that I wondeer why they chose to have a small Russian blue cat rather thann a Maine coon. Maine coons are so big, I’m sure they must always be treated seriously by peeps and are always noticed when they want to be. I’d like to be so big. But there are advantages to being a little baby as well. Everyone cares for me and I have lots of beds where I can sleep when I feel sleepy, and everyone wants to make sure I feel well.

I’ve got lots of my favourite sauce on my birthday, and sausages too! Peeps say they stink, but I love their smell so much that I’d do anything for one!

I’ve always wanted to take part in some blog challenges or prompts or other such things, like some other pets in the blogosphere do, but Mila never let me. Well, today, finally I can do that because it was my birthday! Funnily, right on the day of my birthday, Carol Anne of

Therapy Bits

posted a question in her series Carol Anne asks that seemed especially for me.

What’s your ideal way to celebrate your birthday?

My purrfect birthday! That got me thinking!

First, I’d like to go out. Even for a minute, but to go out on my own, not on the leash but just on my own. I’d like some snow, so that I could look at it and maybe roll in it a little but not too much of it so it wouldn’t feel too cold on my paws. My immune system is very weak because I can never go out so then when I do and it’s cold I am sneezing all day so I wouldn’t like it to be too cold. Just so that it would look very pleasant. I’d like to be able to hunt something, maybe a seagull, so that my people would finally believe that I can think and take care of myself if need be. And I hate seagulls because they used to laugh at me and they always look at me in such an awful way when they see me like they wanted to eat me whole. But I wouldn’t like it to be unsafe out there. Peeps say it’s unsafe outside and that there are a lot of animals who can eat you or tear your fur into little shreds or someone could steal me or I could get lost. I wouldn’t like that. I would like to be able to go out and then come back home safely after a while so they could see I’m not that stupid and can come back home and wouldn’t let anyone to steal me or eat me.

Then, I’d like to have a very big breakfast, perhaps a chicken breast in herbs or a huge piece of salmon and a little bit of whipped cream for a dessert.

I’d like to get only food or natural toys for presents – Mish ice-cream, sausages, other snacks like that, leaves, feathers, cones, anything that smells good and is nice to roll around and bite, I would also like some rubber bands or glassballs to catch and play football with, and things like that. –

I’d like to be treated like an adult Misha who has his own mind and opinions on things and eat my meals on the kitchen worktop. I’d like to have lots of different places arranged for my nap time and not be disturbed by anyone while napping. I’d like all of those places to be filled with comfy furs or other smooth fabrics on which it is pleasant to sleep, like fox fur for example, or something very soft like that.

For lunch, I could eat a pork chop and have Mish ice-cream for dessert, and then go play with Zofijka for a while. Then I’d go outside for a little walk again to see what’s around our house, I think it’s very interesting, it’s always been very interesting for me, I’d like to see all those animals that I can hear at night. I would taste what water from the river tastes like and if it’s better or worse than bathtub water with shampoo and soap.

I would be able to look at everything in our house and touch everything, and I would like to be able to bite flowers and drink water from them and smell them because I love it and no one would care if I knocked a pot accidentally. I could be invisible when I’d need it or become bigger than I am if need be so that everyone would see me well and no one would step on me or kick me. Doors would be open everywhere all day long so I could go in and out as I wanted, or they would open immediately when I would say Hhrrru? In this house one must wait so long for the peeps to open any door, even if you hhrrru? your lungs out!

I would eat my cat food for dinner but as much as I’d like and then have 10 sausages. During the day, people would only touch me when I would want it.

So that’s my purrfect birthday plan. Hope that I’ll be able to make it come true one year. πŸ™‚

What would be your purrfect birthday? What would you have to eat? πŸ™‚

  1. Hello from the far side of the world! I hope you don’t think it impertinent that dogs would respond to your lovely birthday post. I’m Ziggy and my friend, Pudge (who isn’t feeling well) will celebrate our own ‘birthdays’ on March 17th. Pudge will be ten and I’ll be two (human years is 56 and I’ll only be 14 (ish). It is annoying to be told by the two legs what to do and where to go and all, but I think they mean well. Pudge and I were rescued and now have a great life. Living in a cage with a lot of other barking dogs isn’t fun at all! Happy birthday! My own perfect day would include being allowed off leash to roam where I want and smell all the scents that fill the air up here. Lots of exploration to do, but try explaining that to a human! And that’s how I ended up in that horrible cage, so there’s that. My mum would buy me a ‘doggie birthday cake’ which I’ll share with Pudge…then perhaps a nice juicy bone to chew on…or a toy, although I have lots of those! Now I have the house to defend, someone just rang the doorbell and it’s my job to make sure whoever that is passes my security test.

    1. Hhrrru? Ziggy! 😻
      Dogs are very welcome to respond to my posts, all pets and peeps are! :3
      Yeah, I think you may be right that our peeps mean well and aren’t just bossy for the sake of annoying us.
      Oh no! I would hate to live in a cage, that must be horrible! It’s so good you were rescued from there! I love exploring the world and I’m always mad at my peeps that they don’t let me as much as I’d like, but perhaps they indeed have a point, it would be too bad if my explorations were to end up in a cage. Perhaps no one would ever rescue me from there or someone much worse than my peeps would.
      Hope Pudge feels better soon, I hate not feeling well, but thankfully it doesn’t happen very often to me.

  2. That sounds like a fun birthday! We would like to have lots of fresh veggies. Mama gives us celery every day, but we’d like to have parsley, lettuce, and cucumber too. We don’t get those very often. – Casper the guinea pig

  3. You have been missed, Misha.
    As it happens, my bday was Jan22, so we are both Aquarians.
    Maybe one day we can share a meal togther. You can have all the salmon and ice cream but we might need to share sausages. πŸ˜‰
    Happy bday, big kitty.

    1. Aquarians rule! 😻 Mila is an Aquarian too and perhaps that’s why we get along so well, even though neither of us is a typical Aquarian apparently.
      That would be so cool if we could share a birthday meal one day, yay! I’d be happy to share sausages with you, I’m not stingy at all, but I’m not quite sure you would like my sausages, unless you’re an incredibly exceptional peep who can value cat food properly. Most peeps can’t, according to my experience. I don’t mind “human” sausages – that is, the ones that humans like to eat – but the ones for felines are the best!
