Happy Birthday, Jack, Oh Best Beloved! I can't believe you're 14!
I wish you comfy pillows, mom-sweaters, and fleecy blankets,
Lots of laps,
Cozy boxes and baskets,
And sunbeams to soak up,
Sometimes even at the same time!
I wish you tons of tummy rubs,
And lots of papers to push,
Berds to watch,
A beloved Sistercat to hold paws with,
And a brothercat you get along with!
I love you, my Small and Adored One!
You know, I'd settle for you getting the Meniss OFF me! Can't I have no-brothercat for my birthday?
No, but in a couple weeks we'll have a studio of our own and at least you can escape him while we work!
I want you to play with me with my guts and fev-vers more, too.
Anything you want, my Little Spratling!
