The moms.

So Monday was my mom's birthday and she was sleeping in when her phone rang and it was a person who said sorry you didn't get the new job you really wanted so my mom had the worst birthday ever. Happy birthday mom! I'm sorry you had such a sucky day.

And this is a picture of me and Odin that my mom really likes.

Awww, we keep trying to sleep with our woofie that way, but he gets jumpy when we are too close to his face. He does let us sleep against his back though which is also nice and warm.

Peanut said...

Oh we are sorry about the job. Hope the rest of the birthday was a little better. That picture of you and Odin is very cute.

Duke said...

What an adorable picture!
We're sorry your mom didn't get the job she wanted! We hope she got cake!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Well, those stupid people just passed up the best employee they could have had, so puke on them.

And to tell her on her birthday? That's just not right.

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh no...that's terrible. But I know you gave her extra loving to cheer her up, right?

That is a great photo of you and Odin!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

I don't think your mom would want to work for those creeps anyway.

That is a really nice picture of you and Odin though.

Happy burpday to your mom. I'm sorry it was such a bummer but at least she had you and your photogenic, loveable face to comfort her.

Hi, Ike!
That is not the best way to celebrate a birthday! Tell your mom not to worry. She will find the right job for her soon!
I love that picture of you and Odin!
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

What a terrible way to start your birthday!!! We are sorry. Want us to mail the job folks a box of poop?

Huskee and Hershey said...

Happy Belated Birthday to your mom... =)

Ozzie, Rocky and Lola said...

We hope your Mom had a Happy Birthday anyways. Besides, when one door closes another one opens. That wasn't the job she was supposed to have. She will get an even better one!
We love the pic of you and the kitty Ikes!

Crummy birthday present. This was a bad week for new jobs I think. But that picture is really really cute.
Almost makes me wish I had a kitty to cuddle with.


Dexter said...

Ike, maybe its time for you to get a job (at least part time). Do you have any skills?


Jen and Suki said...

That sucks that your mom had to be disappointed on her birthday, but we wish your mom a happy (belated) year anyhow!

Hey Ike,
Sorry about your mom's birthday and the job thing. My Mama always says "everything happens for a reason."
I don't know what that means exactly, but it she tells people that when crappy stuff happens so I thought I'd pass it on to your mom.

You and Odin look so cute together. I wish I could get my neighborhood kitties to stop running away from me. I just want to play with them. Really.

Sorry your mom didn't get that job.

Sophie Brador said...

OMD! That is the cutest picture I have ever seen. But do you realize that you are sleeping with a cat?

Happy Birthday to your mom. Sorry she got bad news. Clearly it wasn't worth working there if they weren't smart enough to see that she would be excellent! Maybe she needs to use you as a reference.


Stanley said...

Hey, Ike!

My girl sounds like she's as much of a slacker as your mom. Go figure.

Love the photo of you and Odin. (I had no idea you were so cat-friendly.) And, we're stinkin' glad to hear that Pearl is doing so well as a tripod.

Bummer about the job. I'm sure you made up for the suckiness that phone call added to your mom's birthday. Give her a big juicy goober smooch for me with that world famous tongue of yours!

Goober love,

Poppy said...

That is the cutest picture ever!!! And happy birthday to your mom too...sorry it was sucky.
