Happy Birthday Little Old Man

Thackary Binx is the first sphynx we ever got.  We got Binx from a cattery in Montana, we lived in Poughkeepsie, NY at the time.  The breeder asked me where I wanted him shipped.  Since the Newburgh airport was just about a 30 minute drive away, that’s the one I selected.  His flight was scheduled to arrive at 8PM, we were so excited to meet him!  We got to the airport early and waited patiently as the baggage was unloaded… no cat.  The breeder provided us flight info to Newburgh but shipped him to Newark.   That’s in another state!  What choice did we have but to drive there and pick him up?  We got home VERY late that night.  The first night he crawled into bed with us, settled in on my pillow and that’s the spot he claimed as his.  I tried showing him at cat shows but he hated it.  He just growled in his cage the entire show.  Binx went to Florida with our daughter Tracy when she graduated from college and got her own place.  He turned  17 years old yesterday.  This is a photo of him from this past Christmas.  He’s still spry and gives Tracy and her husband lots of joy and love.  Happy birthday, Binx!  May you have many, many more.
