Bosco Oliver Willowswamp His Very Self turns thirteen years old today.
He was born on September 20, 2005 at Willowswamp Farm in Ligonier, Indiana to Mr. Catfish Hunter Willowswamp and Mrs. Twiggy Willowswamp. He was an only child and was taken, along with his mother, into the lovely little log cabin style home occupied by the humans of Willowswamp Farm. His favorite pastime as a baby was to lounge under a heatlamp and play with squeezy toys in his playpen.
In December of 2005, he traveled to his forever home in Mishawaka, Indiana with his new person and soon to be Mom...my sister.
He was always a funny, playful, curious, smart little guy, and over the years he developed quite a special bond with Yours Truly...his Aunt CJ.
(With Stewey, however, the relationship was much slower to develop. Bosco loved to body check Stewey off of his perch. Stewey liked to growl at Bosco in an attempt to civilize him.)
Today, Bosco lives with his Mom and visits Aunt CJ whenever the Bat Signal is deployed. This arrangement was made between the two of us during very turbulent times, and we promised to be there for one another whenever the need arose.
Happy Birthday, dear little Bosco. You are very very loved and I hope you have a wonderful day.
