Happy 11th Birthday, Queen Natasha the Evil

We have to pause today to wish a very Happy 11th Birthday to our fearless leader, Queen Natasha the Evil. Otherwise, she will repay us for our forgetfulness.

Confidence.

She exuded confidence even in her early vet visits.

As the only current member of The Herd that has been here since she was a wee puppy (and the only one with a known birthday), Queen Natasha has been leading The Herd since the passing of the Great Nikita back in 2006.

Queens

Princess Natasha and her mentor, Nikita

She takes her sentry job seriously and can often be found patrolling the perimeter of Sibe Quentin – or in a sentry post inside the house.

The Queen says that there is nothing wrong with being comfortable while performing sentry duties.

And she is quite clear that a little age should never be an excuse for acting like a puppy when events call for it.

need for speed

Feel the need for speed!

So in her usual subtle way, Queen Natasha has a few words for our audience.

do my bidding

Wish me a Happy Birthday . . . or else!

    Happy Birthday, Natasha! Today is the day I picked to celebrate my cat’s birthday also. We don’t know the actual day since we found her when she was about 6 weeks old. I guess it’s sort of fitting since she thinks she’s a princess.

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
