Yes, Sacha is 6 yrs. old today and every bit still the "princess" of our house, and the "owner" of this blog. :o). I don't normally draw animals, but it's her birthday so I thought I'd give it a go. And yes, Sacha's eyes are really that big (better to see me with). She's always giving me that "when are you going to feed me again" look. ;o) Don't worry, she gets fed very well!!

Since Sacha is a Dutch cat, you might want to wish her Happy Birthday in dutch. How to wish someone Happy Birthday in dutch, you ask? Here's how:

For close friends or family (these are in the 'familiar' voice)
1) Hartelijk gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag.
2) Fijne verjaardag!
3) Gelukkige verjaardag!
4) Hartelijk Gefeliciteerd en een fijne dag toegewenst!
5) Van harte gefeliciteerd en nog vele jaren.

For a person you don't know well, or the person is older or the cat is a "princess" ( this is the 'formal' voice)
1) Hartelijk gefeliciteerd met uw verjaardag.

And of course, everyone loves cake for their birthday, even Sacha, but make her's a fish cake! ;o)

Lang zal ze leven!
(Long may she live!)
tot ziens,
Judy
