    Happy Birthday Bean! You and my husband share the same birthday, but you're much cuter. I hope you get a bowl of kitten food for your birthday. And some belly rubs. And a new catnip mouse. And I hope you get to poke Drewey at least once, provided you don't hurt her.

  10. Happy Birthday Bean! I have to say my ginger tabby is not happy that I am watching a video of Bean and wants attention NOW :).

  11. Sigh, You are so amazing Laurie - thank you for this fun Charlene retrospective. She was a silly, pretty looking cutie when she was a wee one.

    It was fun to kinda see how her coloring changed.

    And Miss Butterbean - your floof is beautiful beyond compare! As is your kitty heart, overflowing with love for all the fosters.

    As a celebration I will lay out some 'nip for Toes and Marbles - especially since they allow me to enjoy you and the IBK's

  22. Wow! Little, itty bitty Beanie, sleek, slinky, teenage Beanie, and grown-up, floofy Beanie all in one video! With special guest appearances by Drewster and, hey, was that Craig with curls?

    I love the thwarted Drewey cuddle at about 1:35. I suspect that Charlene would pin Drewey and give her a bath if only she was willing.

  24. What a beautiful, adorable cat!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Happy Birthday!! Love The Bean as an itty bitty herself (so adorable!) and the fleeting appearances of Drewey who, as usual, is not amused.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy Birthday Bean!!! You make me smile whenever I see you:)

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a nice video. Ms. Bean usually looks so regal and serene, but every once in a while I can see the devil in her expression. I thought one clip looked like some kittens were trying to nurse on her. Did they? I guess that could happen.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Such a beauty! She changed so much, too - from a precious little kitten into a floofy, glamorous adult. Makes me miss the days when my big floofy boy cat was also an itty bitty...

  29. What a darling beautiful girl she is! Happy Birthday Ms. Bean!

    And, Laurie, thank you for the retrospective - I wish I had a similar record of my two growing up.
