Wordless Wednesday – Magellan Turns Four

Magellan Summer 2017

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Magellan Turns Four

It’s hard to believe that the little bundle of fur that I first laid eyes on a few Christmas seasons ago is about to celebrate another year of life, but based on the days of the calendar, my precious Magellan is about to turn four!

Four is a milestone in a Maine Coon’s life. Maine Coons are a slow-maturing breed. Most Maine’s are not considered fully mature until they are four to five years old!

Magellan at Create With Joy - Kitten In a Box

As Magellan transitions from three to four, I can see how he has matured over the years. While he is still a playful kitten at heart, he is not quuite as wild as he used to be – his times of wildness come in more measured doses. His senses are still sharp – he still spots tiny bugs from across the room and is on high alert at the smallest of changes in our environment (in comparison to Tsunami, who has definitely mellowed with age) – but he is more content to just lie in our arms and relax.

Of course, he still has youth flowing through his veins, as evidenced by the frequent prey that he hunts and leaves on our chairs, sofas and beds!

Magellan - Seeing Double

As we begin the countdown to his special day, here are some birthday quotes to ponder:

Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years. – Ausonius

Don’t just count your years. Make your years count. – George Meredith

Youth has no age. – Pablo Picasson

Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start a new year. – Sammy Hagar

The way I see it, you should live every day like it’s your birthday. – Paris Hilton

      It’s so hard to believe that four years have come and gone (even more so with Tsunami!)
      There days go by all too fast.
      It’s nice to have a place to pause and treasure our times together each week!

    What a fancy bright pink birdie feather you got there, Magellan! Happy Birthday wishes to you my furr-iend! (inflating kitty cat-shaped balloons & throwing kitty-shaped confetti in the air) How exciting! Being four is super fun, I can recall.

  17. Happy Birthday to Magellan! I have a four year old cat named Sanai and she has been a cranky old lady from the beginning lol. Enjoy the memories!!! Stopping by from SITS Sharefest!

    Happy Birthday, Magellan. We did not realize that Maine Coon’s were slow to mature; though, we are certain you have mentioned it before. Those four years flew by…at least for us. Sounds like Magellan gifted you with some breakage. Wishing your floofy boy many, many birthdays with lots of “fun” around the house.

  21. What an amazing cat he is.

    Happy Birthday Magellan!

  22. Timmy says:

    Timmy and Family

  23. Happy Birthday, Magellan! What a wonderful kitty you are! I love all the quotes, but the one from Ausonius really resonates with me. Thank you so much for sharing this inspiring post with us at the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Have a lovely week ahead!

    Happy belated birthday, Magellan! Wow! Is that him in that top pic? Has his color changed that much over the years, or is it just a trick of the light? He certainly is a gorgeous young man. I can’t believe he’s four already!

    I love all of his antics. It’s always fun to read about what he’s been up to. lol
