Thursday Thirteen #17

Remember we told you that mommy and daddy went to New York City this past weekend? Well, they want to a party and got to see Olympia. Remember our special friend, Sweet Olympia, we told you about before? Well, they got to see her and mommy petted her for a long time. Here are two photos of Olympia from the party. We dedicate this Thursday Thirteen to our strong and beautiful friend, Olympia.

Thirteen Things We Love About Olympia

1. She was the center of attention at a very large holiday party. Mommy said that there were lots of people and noise and still Olympia was in the middle of everything and even sat on the couch and demanded love and attention.
2. Olympia scarfed down shrimpies that Daddy fed her like she was a little kitten.
3. She is a sweet girl kitty at heart even though she is 18 years and 4 months old.
4. Even though she is skin and bones, she still is very strong on the inside.
5. She has beautiful furs where there are furs left.
6. She is very friendly and let mommy pet her and take her photos.
7. Olympia loves her daddy and mommy and her kidbean very much.
8. She bravely fought through chemo with her grandma at the same time.
9. She is a mix of Maine Coon and another type of kitty we're not sure. Maine Coons are very special.
10. Olympia bravely takes her insulin shots every day, twice a day. In addition to the cancer she fought, she also has diabetes now so has to get her insulin.
11. Olympia likes to travel and goes everywhere with her family. Most recently she went to Buffalo, New York for Thanksgiving. This is very impressive, especially since we are so scared to travel and we are not even sick.
12. Olympia doesn't dwell on the fact that she is sick (CLEARLY because she was right in the center of the party this past weekend) and lives every moment of her 9 lives to the fullest possible extent.
13. We love our special beautiful friend Olympia. She is a wonderful role model to all kitties to stay young at heart all your life and enjoy each moment!!

Olympia is very brave and unique to me. Because I will never like to travel anywhere. But she is so friendly and could very easily contact with people~!!!!

I like Olympia's fur, long and soft~! I am very happy your mommy could pet her and giving her strength and love memory mark in her life~!!!!!

Have a great weekend to you both.

The maid screamed when she read your post! She was in New York City TOO this last weekend!!! And met Asta's (Dr. Hinweis in the CCSI show) Mom! (I'll post about it when CCSI is over) She could have met you too, she screamed... (Silly humans)
She says next time she goes to the city she will check back with your humans, hahahahahahaha!
Did you see the new episode of CCSI yet? How do you like it? And tomorrow, the second part, it will get even better!
See you at the movies...
