Happy Birthday Mozart!!!

We know what you are thinking....isn't kitten season usually in the spring? Then how is it that most of us have fall birthdays??? weird right.....

Anyhow, Mozart, house panther extraordinaire is 5 years old. You can read his first post here.

Mom hates to admit she has favorites, but Mo might be her favorite. He is the official door greeter and in fact has to be shut up when any workers come over since he wants to help. Never met a stranger - and yet has the word "caution" on his medical file after he tried to bite the vet, the tech, and mom the last time he was vaccinated.

Plus, Mozart is our additional reminder about Petfinder's Less Adoptable Animal Week.  Mo is a black cat - strike one. And if has a corneal scar on his left eye that causes some sight loss and the vets were originally afraid he might have to lose the eye - strike two. And when he went back to the shelter to be adopted, he was about 5 months old - strike three. Fortunately for Mo, he was only back at the shelter for a couple of weeks before mom realized she had to bring him home with us forever.


  1. all those strikes and then at last a proper home. Good for your mum. Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  2. Happy Birthday Mozart.

    While kitten season usually starts in the spring, those kittens usually find homes right away. It is the second and third litters each year that end up in the papers and at the shelter seeking new homes.


    Hope you have a most special day today! Yay! Take care

  4. Happy birthday, Mozart! Salmon for everyone!

  5. Have a great day and Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!

  6. Happy Birthday Mozart! Here in the desert, kittens get borned all the time...maybe you came from Nevada!

  7. Happy birthday, Mozart! We hope you have a fabulous day!

    BTW, we were six months old when the mom adopted us, and she thinks that was young, since Annie was about a year and Chumley was between 2-3. All still young at the time. :-)

    We're glad your mom chose you (or you chose her!).

  8. Happy birthday, Mo! I do not think you are at ALL "less adoptable" - you are clearly a pawsome kitty. Some humans are dumb, that's all. (Not yours, obviously!)

  9. Happy Birthday, Mozart! Black kitties rock! A lot of folks missed out on a great kitty - we're glad your mom chose you too! We hope you have a great day today!

  10. Happy Birthday, Mozart! You are one handsome black cat!!

  11. Happy Birthday, Mozart! You are a very lucky little house panther to be adopted by your mom. Hope this is your best year yet.

    Pee Ess: We love house panthers! Taffy was an older adult when I adopted her - probably 6 or 7.

  12. I don't understand what it is people have against black kitties! They are so sleek, so elegant, just like Mozart. What is there not to love?

  13. Happy Birthday beautiful black panther Mozart. Our mom had two black panther kits many years ago (rescued0 and she said they were adorable.
