It’s difficult to believe that Sam used to be this wide eyed little kitten full of mischief!
These days Sam is a little more laid back. For her birthday, over the weekend I gave her her own little garden outside her window. Here she can watch the hummingbirds at their feeder while lounging or even while eating her meals or having a snack! I also planted some herbs for her along with some cat grass but I’m just letting them get bigger before I move them in for her. She still has her little catnip plant there too, though it hasn’t been doing much lately; we may have to replace that as well.
Hopefully by her next birthday we’ll be upgrading the window so that she’ll even be able to get fresh air through it. She does have two other windows that she can sit in for fresh air and they overlook a nice little shade garden too.
We are just thrilled that Sam got through her health scare last year and has been a healthy senior lady ever since. Happy Birthday, Sweetie!

Aw, happy 14th Birthday, sweet girl! I love the flower garden you set up for her outside the window/her bed. Have you tried putting a harness on her and walking her outside for some fresh air? One of my friends does that with her cats and they totally love it 🙂

Happy birthday Samantha. It sounds like your Momz fixed a great place for you.
Happy birthday, Samantha! Soth’s grandma built him a dining room table so he can have dinner and show, too! We’re just waiting on his grandparents to visit so that they can deliver it. Looks like Sam has the perfect set up there.

Happy Birthday to sweet Sam!!! Give her hugs from Aunt Lynn, please, Jan! Wow, you did those window boxes up good, and all the additions with the hanging plants and hummingbird feeders-beautiful, you rock, Jan!! How you found time to do that with all the other stuff, I’ll never know! Sam appreciates I am sure, how awesome her Mom is!
That just means the other stuff didn’t get done….LOL! But Sam is worth it!

Happy birthday Samatha, you look mahvulous! Love Dolly
Happy Birthday, Samantha. You should get a bird feeder and hang it with the plants on a shepherd’s hook. We have one outside our front window and the kitties love watching the birds. It may take a bit until the birds find it, but it is a fun thing for indoor cats.
That is a great idea, but we have to be careful with bird feeders around here because they attract bears. However, I did some research and hopefully if I avoid sunflower seed or suet, it won’t draw the bears in. I’m going to try picking up some Nyjer and safflower seed and see how that does. You’re right, Sam will love that!
Happy Birthday!!! I hope you enjoy your garden.
Thank you, Edie! The Momz gets frustrated because I won’t tell her how many hummingbirds I’ve seen so far, and she never gets to see them! Hee hee. Love, Sam
