And now, a little visit to her past... I know you may have seen many of these images before, but I thought in honor of Butterbean's birthday, I would put together a little collection of pics of our girl from over the years.

  2. OH! She was truly one of the cutest kittens ever, and she grew up to be such a beautiful lady! Happy belated birthday, Bean!

  3. I love Bean so much. I honestly think she is the prettiest cat I've ever seen. What I like about those pictures is that I can't believe how much she changed; in the seventh picture down she looks like a normal Siamese...and then comes the floof!

  4. My favorite is baby Bean in a hat.

  5. It's so amazing how much her colouring and appearance changed from kittenhood to adulthood! She is a very beautiful lady.

  6. She just keeps getting better and better. She is a Supermodel. So sweet that Drewey is in some of the pictures.
    HBD!,CB!

  14. She is the personification of what Lord Byron wrote:

    SHE walks in beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
    And all that's best of dark and bright
    Meets in her aspect and her eyes ...

    Happy birthday, beautiful Bean!

  15. What a lovely pictorial celebration of the "Queen of Floofy" Ms Bean (and cameos by Drewey)!!!!

    I am sure she thanks you for not including that awkward shot of her belly that made us all laugh, although I did chuckle at the one of her on the porch since your hilarious story of her slide down same was ringing in my head.

  16. OMC - we hadn't seen baby Bean pics before....how simply adorable. Mom loves the picture of her sitting on the deck with her paws hanging over. :)

  22. Bean,

    So cool to see you from beeebeh to beautiful adult. Glad your Mom gave you your favorite kitten kibble on your birthday cake. I'm sure you loved it.

  23. Kittens steal my heart, and full grown floof always makes my heart sing, but I have a special spot for that gangly teen stage..

    ReplyDelete
  24. That picture of baby Bean and the pink flowers is so adorable--it belongs on a calendar or cat book or magnet or something.

  25. Happy Birthday Charlene!

    With love and purrs from your kitty fans - Atticus, Mae, Gandalf and Malcolm.

  26. It's a Bean feast!
    Who could have suspected that such an adorable little kitten would grow up to be such a gracious and ladylike (and floofy!) cat?
    Happy birthday to you, dear Charlene!

  27. WHat an absolutely stunningly gorgeous cat she is. Happy Birthday!

  28. I never tire of seeing pictures of beautiful Charlene - and it's a special treat that you included some with Drewey, too. And the one of her snoozing with Craig is priceless. (Someday you will need to have Craig take a picture of you and Charlene to share here!)
    Happy Birthday, Charlene! We love you!

  47. Haapy Birthday Beanie! Which picture is my favorite? You wanting to craft with Mom? You sleeping with Dad? You and Drewey? (do so love those!) Or you showing off your toe hawks?

    ReplyDelete

  52. Oh, Miss Bean was the cutest little kitten! I like that Drewey Junebug made it in there, too.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Drewey and Bean in the pink chair! Too funny.

    ReplyDelete
  54. The third one in the big block of photos is hands-down my favorite Charlene image. She looks so amazed at the little pink flowers. It's like she's thinking "Oh my god! So pink! So pretty!"

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love seeing the intermittent progression from when Charlene was smaller than Drewey to when she was suddenly larger ... or at least floofier. Happy Birthday to Ms. Bean!
