Wordless Wednesday – Tsunami Turns Six

The First Time I Held Tsunami

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

The first time I met Tsunami was in a photo.
He was 3 ½ weeks old,
Sauntering across the room,
With a huge grin on his face…
I could not get him out of my head.

The second time I met Tsunami was in a photo.
He was 5 weeks old.
Somehow, he managed to steal the spotlight
From his siblings even then!
A star was being born.

The third time I met Tsunami I held him in my arms.
He was 7 1/2 weeks old.
It was love at first sight!

Today we are celebrating Tsunami’s 6th birthday.
Please join us in wishing Tsunami a Happy Birthday –
May there be many more!

  4. Happy Birthday darling Tsunami! Your story reminds me of how we met Zee – it was also through a photograph and he instantly stole my heart!

    This is a very special day, because my sweet Zoey also has a birthday today, as she turns 5!! A catnip toast to both of you! xoxox

      Deb, I could not believe it when I saw your post saying Zoey turns 5 today – how cool that she and Tsunami share the same birthday, a year apart!
      What I didn’t share in my post was that even though I was the one who fell in love with Tsunami – Tsunami actually fell in love with my husband!
      When we went to visit him, he “picked” my husband by going over, curling up and falling asleep in his flip flop!
      (After that, it was all over – Tsunami was the one – and he is “Daddy’s boy”!)

    Happy Birthday Tsunami! Was he the only kitty in his litter to not have blue eyes? He’s gorgeous! Thanks for hosting WW!

      Ah, that I can’t remember Loy – he has more litter mates than are showed up for that picture!
      We actually wanted to take another litter mate home with us when we went back –
      I wanted one of his brothers as well –
      But all of other boys were promised to other buyers and no amount of pleading could pry one from her home!

      So – she promised me pick of any future litter I wanted – and I fell in love with Legend – who SHE wanted –
      And I had to REALLY work my charm to get him to his TRUE home! 🙂

    Just so expressive…

  40. he was adorable from the beginning. no wonder you could not resist. I always wonder is Legend & Tsunami related?

    • Create With Joy

      Hi Faythe – great question!

      Tsunami & Legend come from the same breeder but have different parents.
      They were born about 6 weeks apart (so Legend will be celebrating his 6th birthday soon as well!
      We consider them brothers but biologically speaking, they are not related.

      • thanks for the info. I had 3 yorkies at one time. 2 were from the same breeder & parents, but from different litters, so about 3 years apart. the oldest was a rescue.
        and yes we considered them all sisters , LOL!

  41. What a cutie!
    Happy Birthday, sweet Tsunami!
