My mom has been fussing over me a lot lately. She keeps saying stuff like "this time last year I was trying to get within 5 feet of you" and "this time last year I was lurking in the cold and dark to feed you cans of Fancy Feast". She picks me up and fusses some more and says even more silly stuff like "this time last year there is no way I would have been able to pick you up for snuggles". Really. Mom's can be so silly. She says my "gotcha" day is coming up next month.
