It’s Odin the One-eyed Cat’s 4th Birthday & You’re Invited!

Hello dear friends, it’s me Odin and guess what? It’s my birthday, well it was yesterday but the yellow-haired woman celebrated our 3rd blog anniversary instead. Is that fair? No. Is it fair that I lost my eye during my unfortunate youth in the Bronx? Is it fair countless sweet kitties languish in cages or worse? Life isn’t fair and we must enjoy what we have when we have it. How about right now? If you can help cats, then go ahead, do what you can. Even the smallest kind of kindness and goodness makes a difference. They add up just like a drops of water filling a glass. For my birthday I make the same wish every year…

My life started out badly but I got lucky when I got adopted. So now I get to have luxuries like BIRTHDAY PARTIES! Did you know June is Adopt-a-Cat Month® from the American Humane Association.and Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month from the ASPCA. Spread the love and share. Now, let’s get this party started! I like low key parties, nothing fancy with good old-fashioned natural fun. Make yourself comfortable. You don’t need to wear a party hat and go can go a little wild. I won’t tell your pawrents. Okay, maybe not wild like my crazy uncle Norbert.

My fur bros, Domino and Merlin think I’m a bad boy. My bro Gris Gris who is OTRB does not think so. What do you think?

  2. with one “I” or “2” “Is” Odin, you are just fantastic . love all the art. just got back from, ATL and so tired

  3. Happy birthday Odin, I hope you had a great day! I’m trying to make your birthday wish come true for a mama cat, her 4 kittens and her brother that I found living in my yard. Send some wishes their way!

      1. It’s a long story…I found Mama, her brother Otto, and their mom living under my shed late last fall. So yes they technically are feral but they looked pretty young to me when I found them. I’m a sucker and I started feeding them and gave them heated boxes to live in etc. I fully intended to trap them and get them spayed/neutered but life gets in the way sometines! About 2 months ago I started to notice that Mama was looking a bit bulky, so I finally got my act together and got a trap and got her and Otto on the same night after almost 2 weeks of trying! I moved them to a partially finished room in my basement (with heat) and started to try and bond with them. Otto slowly came around and I can pet him now he is still a bit skittish but has never swatted at me or anything. Mama on the other hand has been in mommy protective mode and has not allowed me to pet her yet but she does eat her food with me close by and does allow me to pick up her babies (born May 1st) now. I’m hoping that she will come around soon. I have 2 cats of my own and can’t have anymore so I’m working on getting the kittens adopted and hopefully can get Mama and Otto adopted together because they are bonded. I dont want to put put them back outside after all this work, it’s too dangerous out there…wish me luck!
