It was 4 years ago today that this...this...this THING started following me around at an outdoor party I was working at as a DJ...he'd shown up as a stray the day before at the person's house out in the country, and we bonded and he followed me home riding in my van. Scrawny, underfed almost to the point of malnourishment, he quickly attacked the food bowl when we got home and settled into my heart. I don't know when he was born, I think he was likely around 8 weeks old when he found me, but this is the day I celebrate his 'birthday'. Happy birthday Scar.

Happy birthday, Scar! Stop running off, you scare a lot of people when you do that! (Oh, please don’t tell him he has a fan club full of hoomins out there...it’ll only make him worse!)

Don't you believe in "love at first scratch"? Cynic.

@myklj999 And that was probably when you had that stay in the hospital, right?

@myklj999 never mind being woken up at 4 AM for some love action. Even if it translates to "pet me and feed me."

It's so obvious that, although you like to complain about him from time to time, he has cemented his place in your heart. Give him a pat from me if you can do it without him taking your arm off.

No, because I don't know the actual date, but it is a few months earlier. This is the anniversary of the day He birthed his presence to me.

@crazyhorseladycx My best gal (ever) picked me. The owner said "You ken ride her if you ken catch her." I zig-zagged out to her, halter in hand, and when I finally reached her, I think we both knew we were going to be friends for awhile. It turned out to be a quarter of a Century.
