Hip, hip, hooray! Smoggy was 17 on April 1st, 2006. Here we see Smoggy relaxing on his birthday present from mum… a new, big, green, comfy cushion (not unlike his previous big, green, comfy cushion) and it got the royal seal of approval, I think.

Smoggy's 17th birthday portrait

My Gorgeous Guy

Smoggy had a health scare in early October but was doing fantastically well on his new medication. We enjoyed some glorious days, just bathed in the sunshine, and with a new camera, I took this divine portrait of him… I love this photo so much.
