THIS IS IT! Today our Blue Boy, Genji The Shining Prince, is FIVE YEARS OLD! Our joy in celebrating this day goes beyond any words we can think of. Less than two months ago he was so sick with pancreatitis and a positive FeCV test that we were very worried that we would lose him. In the event, the FeCV seems to be holding at bay for the time being, and a diet of fresh chicken in lots of broth saw the pancreatitis off and put the weight and energy back into our little boy who is running and playing with the best of them once more!
Here is the first picture of Genji to land at Poupounette Central:
And here he is two days after he moved in:
He settled in pretty quickly!
Here he is at one year old:
Two years old:
Three years old:
Four Years old:
And here is his official Fifth Birthday Portrait!
Live Long and Prosper, Little Blue Boy. We all love you!
Your #1, Tommy, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Da Beebs, Vidock, Violette and Trav.
PS: For those who are newer to this blog and don't know the story of his name, GENJI was named after the main character of the world's oldest novel, "The Tale of Genji" written by Murasaki Shikibu, a court lady in Japan over a thousand years ago. Genji was such a wonderful character that he was nicknamed The Shining Prince (Hikaru Genji).
