High Cotton Turns 5!

So I am a bad mom and did not realize it was Cotton's birthday yesterday until it was quite late last night, but thankfully I had some chicken baby food stored away in the pantry for just such an occasion! Cotton is my little weirdo, and has absolutely no interest whatsoever in any wet food I have ever offered him, but he lives for chicken baby food, so that made his night! He's also a carbaholic, but that's a whole other post! Haha!

Boy does time fly though, I can't believe my purr monster boy is already 5 years old! I've already told him that this is it, he is no longer allowed to get any older...though I'm not sure he was listening as he promptly meowed at me wanting to know why I had stopped the chin rubbin's!

A retrospective of my favorites of my lovable silly Cotton ball:

At 8 months old, this was taken the day we brought him home, back when he still had a small head ;)

He quickly showed what a laid back little dude he was...

And that bath time made him very grumpy...

But that covering him up with a nice blanket after a bath, to help warm him up makes him very happy and sleepy...
 
 He showed off his master skills at finding wonderful napping spots...


 
 

It wasn't long before we learned of Cotton's affinity for drinking water...

in all it's forms...

He took to Red almost immediately and they became lookout buddies as they both enjoy keeping an eye on the goings on of the neighborhood...

They even got into sychronized napping...
 

He showed his crazy hyper side, and how much he loved to have fun on the cat trees...

He quickly worked his way into my heart with his laid back and sweet personality, and really how can you not love a guy who can rock pink and white so well! :)
 
Happy 5th Birthday High Cotton!

Cotton is a very cute, if somewhat evil-looking, kitty. But he looks like an angel when he's sleeping off his bathies.
