To My Cat Börjesson, On His Third Birthday

And everyone said: FINALLY a cat post!

Congratulations, our darling cat Börjesson! Today we celebrate your third birthday as a member the head of this household.

We've had good times, we've had bad times.

There has been scratching (and puking) on rugs, on walls, on internet cables and Lord knows whatnot.

There have been bathing (you didn't like it), spray-bottlings, trips to the vet (that's why you can't have kids, BTW) and days without tuna and shedding that could've made hundreds of Donald Trump-toupées.

But there has also been endless cuddle sessions, hilarious play, snoozing on every available piece of furniture, birds on the balcony and days with all the tuna you could eat.

We love you in spite of all your faults, and you mostly accept us in spite of ours.

We're happy to have the privilege of living in your apartment, and here's to many more birthdays to come!

To Börjesson!

To Börjesson!

Three years of photage finally available to the public!


  1. He's so cute! Happy Birthday kitty.

  2. Grattis Börjesson! Må du leva uti hundrade år!

    Jag antar att din katt förstår sig bäst på svenska...

  3. Börjesson sends his love to both of you :)

  4. I love Borjesson, (sorry I don't have the little dottie thingies), happy birthday may you continue to both terrorise and delight the humans you put up with. And what's up with not getting any cake...??!

  5. Awww…he is so cute! And just a little older than my Felicity! What does his name mean/come from?

  6. Clara: Don't worry he got cake alright! Well, not cake but a buffet of three gourmet dishes for cats! It was a total success.

    Lady D: It's actually a surname. It simply means 'Börje's Son' (Börje being a male given name in Sweden)and no, it doesn't make any sense to a Swede either :P
