Chris Turns Ten

Time flies when you’re having fun. It’s hard to believe that we are already celebrating Chris’s tenth birthday today. We celebrate his birthday on the 14th but we don’t know the exact date of his birth. We only know he was around six months old when we adopted him on November 14th.

If you haven’t already read Chris’s ebook, Bad Cat Chris: The Baddest Cat You’ll Ever Love, it will be free until midnight today (Pacific Time) to help celebrate his birthday. The book only covers the first three plus years after we adopted Chris but those three years were quite an adventure.

Today, I just want to share, or reshare, some of my favorite Chris photos from each year since we adopted him.

I hope you enjoyed this journey through time. It was very difficult to choose the best photo from each year so I just didn’t spend too much time thinking about it.

On another note, if anyone is interested in Genealogy, I am starting a series of posts about my efforts to research my family history and what I found along the way. The first post is up at

    Happy birthday to Chris! I’m sure he has many more years of troublemaking ahead of him. Binga is still getting into trouble at nearly 19 years old.

    I love that picture from 2010. It’s like one of those cartoons where someone yelling creates a physical effect. And poor Tigger trying to ignore everything.
