Opie turns 2 years old!

As you may know, Morgan & I adopted Opie 2 years ago saving him from a cruel breeder. Opie was a very sick little kitten who needed around the clock care and feedings. He spent a week in intensive care at the vet. The vet wasn't sure he'd make it. But he did! Today he is the strongest, healthiest cat I've ever seen. He is the most loving too.
I put together some pictures of him in this video to celebrate his birthday.

Happy Birthday Opie! I loved the video... made me get a little teary-eyed thinking about my own sweet kitty (Cooper) who will be 8 in June. Time flies. :o)

That was sweet. Happy Birthday Opie. How darling both of them are. My cat Michael is now all of 19 years old. Hard to believe but she is. I named her Michael after Michael Landon. Take care.

Happy birthday, Opie. You are a sweetheart. You have the best mommy and daddy in the world! (P.S. I went to a Roberta Flack concert in the '70s. I love her voice.)

Happy Birthday Opie!
What an incredibly handsome little man you are too. I admit to getting all teary eyed watching that too.

I won't tell that you told us about Morgan though, hehe.

We have just got back from the cat santuary where we have picked out our new cat!! Our beloved cat died in Aug, so we really want another. The one we hope to get is a marmalade colour and called Gerri- she is a girl and sooo beautiful. She was found as a stray so we hope to give her a new loving home!
Happy Birthday Opie!

Tascha that was the sweetest video. What a wonderful thing you did and what a gorgeous cat. I was on the phone with my daughter and we both watched it together. Her in Peterborough and me in St. John's, crying and laughing and oohing and aww-ing. Thanks for that. :-)

What a sweetie, and what a touching video you've made! All of ours (just posted photos myself) are rescues too, and I wouldn't have it any other way...

Happy Birthday, Opie. Gosh, he's a beautiful cat! Lucky you to have found him.
Your video and music has me slowed down and relaxed. Thanks for that.

Happy Birthday Opie, you are cute!

Donna said...

Oh, Tascha, here I am crying like a baby... (there's something about beautiful photos put to beautiful music - and when you add to that a sweet fur baby, my heart just melts!)...

How wonderful of you and Morgan to save that little baby from a nasty breeder. Opie was a beautiful baby and is now a beautiful 2 year old... May you all enjoy many happy years together...

Aw!! He is just adorable! I LOVE cats dearly. There is just something so different and special about cats--they stand out amongst other animals. I have 4! :)

Love your blog!

Fondly,

Paula said...

That was a nice tribute! The name Opie is cute, and if it brings a memory of Ron Howard as Opie Taylor, how could you not like that as well? I like your blog the best. Thank you for sharing your life.

Shoozles said...

I cried through this entire video. He looks so much like my cat smudge, that passed away suddenly this fall. That was so sweet, you are so fortunate to have so many photos of him
