Happy 3rd Birthday, Chai!

July 30, 2013

I’m sorry that I haven’t been blogging…

Things have been getting in the way.

Ha ha, no, I can’t blame Chai.  I could give you various reasons for why I’ve been quiet on here, but it doesn’t really matter– I am back in time for a very special day–

It is time to celebrate…

Chai’s 3rd birthday!

Chai is a very busy boy so I thought I would share some photos of him since we were reunited at the end of last field season.

And then helping with the preserving of it

(He was particularly curious about the popping sound as the jars sealed)

The craft sale profits went to buying Chai pricey diet food,

which was his least favourite part of this year!

It took a while, but eventually he didn’t mind wearing his Christmas bow-tie

He had already forgotten the Christmas spirit by Boxing Day,

when we had a lost Boston Terrier visitor for a few hours

It’s about time to stop, but I could add many, many more photos… Chai is just so photogenic. ;)

I made the decision last year to stay year-round on the island and give up the nomadic field biologist life.  But an opportunity came up that I couldn’t turn down and I ended up back in northern Alberta for a seven-month contract.  This is the last time Chai, I promise!

But Chai seems to be happy spending the summer with my parents again–

    Auntie Jillie, Mom finally looked at it. I think I have gained too much weight to go back to the island! I may have to remain a farm cat :)
