Graduation Party

Graduation Day
Today is a big day for my SS and me. It’s her graduation day! I have been her study pal ever since I adopted her many years ago. We have corseted together in the little study room in the back garden for long hours working on assignments and producing the thesis. I have curled up on her lap to keep her warm on cold nights. I have sat on her books and papers to remind her of their importance. I have walked across the keyboard of her computer to ‘help’ with the typing. I have provided unwavering support in times of uncertainty and means of relaxation in times of stress. Therefore, I feel that I should have an active role on this day and claim equal honour.

Like SS, I have invited my sissies and furriends to the graduation held in the Great Hall of the University of Sydney and the traditional afternoon tea party on the lawn of the Main Quad. The kitties at Zoolatry and Topcatrules have made these beautiful graphics of me as presents….

Here I am, sitting at the park in front of the Clock Tower gate of the university waiting for my furriends to arrive from their faraway homes…

As with all graduations, individual portrait and photographs with furriends and family are mandatory.

This is a photo taken by Sassy of me as I make the speech at the ceremony….

My special furriends and I are gathered at the entrance of the Great Hall, where all graduation ceremonies of the university are held…

A group photo with my siblings-in-floof who have come all the way from the USA (Fin and Miss Kitty in the back row), Germany (Siena, front right) and Norway (Theodor, front middle)…..

Here I am, at the base of the stairs which lead to the room of my SS’s professor to whom she has gone to pay her respects…..

Another photo with some of my furriends at the cloister, where we gather for the traditional afternoon tea after the ceremony.….
