On New Year’s Eve 2000 (i.e. 31 December 1999) just before midnight, our “Millenium” gift arrived.
It was a sweeeet small beautiful kitten – peeking out of some rocks (an old covered up well) out the front of of our house.
We decided the kitten must have been 4 to 5 weeks old and so today is designated as Shandy’s birthday!! Today Shandy is 16 years old.
If you go to the Categories of Posts on this site (on the right-hand side) and click on the drop down arrow, you will see Shandy has his very own Category of posts here on Fascinating Animals. He is indeed a fascinating animal and is featured on the “Our Animal Friends” area of this site too.
Your cat or dog (or any other animal) companion can also be featured on a page of her/his own by going to this tab.
I have rather cleverly designed an interactive Happy Birthday card for Shandy cat’s 14th birthday, 2 years ago.
Please join in wishing him a very nice Birthday by clicking on THIS link for the birthday card. This will open a “dialog” box which will ask if you want to Open or Save “Happy Birthday Shandy.doc” which is a Microsoft Word document.
Please save the Word document somewhere to your computer, then have fun once you open it up to read it. Double-click on the “loud speaker” pictures/icons. Make sure the volume on your computer is turned up a little. Probably don’t use iTunes as it doesn’t seem to work.
If anyone is reading this post, please download the Birthday Card and make a comment on this thread about the card and to wish our beautiful Shandy a happy birthday. I dis-continued Shandy’s column, because of a lack of feedback or interest in it. Sometimes people are quite happy & free to give negative feedback, but this Blog hardly gets any positive Comments, for who knows what reason.
Thank you from Shandy.
