BIRTHDAY DEDICATION TO ALL THE MAGNIFICENT MARCH people/artists, (whether I have ability to NAME each of you, or not.)

And I acknowledge that a few of these lovely people may've not been on dA a long while, but still miss them, yet, I'd known them for a little while, and therefore want to acknowledge.  After all, just because someone leaves, or is not as active anymore, does not mean they are lost in the world... and I want to put my good-wishing energy out to them anyway.

These are such awesome people/artists!

~~~~~

I  DO wish I could name all and "newer" dA friends, but I lost the ability to keep track of dA B-D's, the way that I used to.
But I truly want ALL OF YOU MARCH BIRTHDAY BABIES, ALL THE BEST IN ALL YOU DO FOR THIS NEXT UPCOMING YEAR!


:la: :cake: :party: :cake: :la:

*****

I wasn't going to upload yet another cat photo (as I have done quite a few since beginning of 2018, but it is probably the most subject-matter I have)... but I absolutely love my Aunika cat, our "last-in" and since she turned ONE, on March 5th, a birth date we know for sure of, which is rare in many adopted/rescued pets, I decided to use a photo of her again, for MARCH BIRTHDAYS!


*****

Other Types of Special Anniversaries (for me) :

:bulletgreen: My beautiful Abby cat turned FOUR on March 1st!
What's Happening?
(She's the one on the right in this photo... really should get a new one of her up, as she is one of my most photogenic cats.

:bulletgreen: My sweet special Aunika cat turned ONE on March 5th... like a few of my friends here. ;)
In Winter's Light
(I know I just recently uploaded a new photo of her, it really is Abby's turn. :lol: )

:bulletgreen: It was my DECADE Anniversary on dA, March 9th. :la:

:bulletgreen: It is my ONE year Anniversary taking Tai Chi classes on a regular basis, on March 14th. :la:

:bulletgreen: It is the Spring Equinox, on March 20th, something I do whole-heartedly acknowledged, as my dear friend
Lily Annissina remembered and pointed out recently within something very special! :rose:


A COUPLE *Extra* MESSAGES, or SHOUT-outs, TO JUST A FEW OF THE VERY ABOVE-MENTIONED dA FRIENDS-FAMILY


:pointr: Miarath has been a most wonderful friend for me in all of these years, and when either of us have been sporadic here on dA, we seem to stay the same when we return. I love that about good friendships. She also is extremely supportive of me, in a number of ways, plus continues to advertise "The Shelter Project" on her page. She is also a very multi-talented artist, which I admire. :heart:

:pointr: Sisterslaughter165 is so lovely. The supportive comments I have received have always warmed my heart. Such kindnesses however small they only SEEM, are the things I always remember very well, considering I don't have a good memory in general. :heart:

:pointr: BGai is truly one of THEE most amazing people I've ever met on dA.  First of all, I'm a huge fan of her work... besides that, she reached out to me during a very difficult time, and I will never forget that. Additionally, she has lots of courage and bravery- in many things- but for taking over Unframed-Nature for me, which truly has meant more to me than I can ever convey. I wish I had given it to her sooner, but I was simply not able, and she just was absolutely patient and understanding, which is even more difficult to be, when you are not aware of everything. Because she believed in me, I believe in her more than she ever knows. She has been running Unframed-Nature very well, in addition to her many other groups... but it is also way more difficult to take over an established group than it is to begin a new one, in my humble opinion. Anyway, Bron rocks! :heart:

:pointr: MirachRavaia I will never forget the kindnesses that Mirach has bestowed upon me, and the outreach with her creativity, which still melts my heart even today. She is a most wonderful person (and fellow tree-lover). :heart:

:pointr: Cmac13 is awesome. I will never forget how she tried to give me tips and information on 'Hell Freezes Over' Membership, and that she did not need to go out of her way and take the time to do that. I have always appreciated and admired her for several reasons. :heart:

:pointr: davincipoppalag is literally the longest person I have ever known from dA, who I STILL communicate with here, since I have joined dA! There had only been a couple before, and for a while, but they are not active anymore, or somehow lost contact. I am truly blessed to know Dave, for many reasons. Simply, he is a good person with a good heart, and extending his support and friendship to me, have meant more than my mere words could ever express. He's also very talented - Dave is truly just amazing! :heart:


SO, for ALL of you MARCH-borns... may you receive much goodness in the coming year.  If you dole it out, I know you will also receive some in return. I thank ALL of you MARCH-borns for the goodness you've shown me over the various times we've known each other.


~~~~~~~~~:rose:

[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww: It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks: And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.

She is very photogenic whereas I had had a cat before this who was all black- love of my life- :hmm:
But he wasn't nearly as photogenic. But, there are a few good ones in here of him. :nod:

Thank you sweetest Melissa, you always make me smile! :D :D :love: :kitty:

You don't know me, but I'm a March person too (last Friday, the 9th). So thank you! That is one lovely black cat! And I have 5 kitties (or I should say, 5 kitties have me) and two of them are black. :)

Oh thank you for telling me! I think that's wonderful, and happy barely belated BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!

I hope you have a great B-DAY MONTH, and a super year ahead! :la:

:party: :cake:

Ya know a professional kitty owner when they say "5 kitties (or however many) have me". ;)

Well, Aunika here, is what I call the "last-in"... the last adopted cat.  I adopted her July 1st, 2017.

I adored my Philippe cat who was also all black, very unique looking but he passed away in a strange way, December before last, 12-4-2016. He was barely seven.

I wasn't trying to replace him, but I did want another cat that would be black. ;)

Yay for black cats right? :heart:

Nice to meet you, by the way. :handshake:

Fractaldragon Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2018  Professional Artisan Crafter
Nice to meet you too! I have had a wonderful birthday, and the month (so far) has been pretty good. Aww, sorry you lost Philippe. Our current oldest kitty, Kobe (named for the city in Japan), is a very slender black cat. He picked me out—stuck his paw out of the cage and "yelled" at me. He's almost scary smart. And he has a sense of humor too.
Our other black kitty is Kyoto, and we also have her sister, Kiki, who is a black and white tuxedo kitty. We adopted them together when they were about 5 1/2 months old. They both like me, but love my husband.
Then there is our very furry purry Mi-ke (again, a Japanese-based name, pronounced "mee-kay.") She's an adorable long-haired calico whom my husband picked out—he took one look at her and fell in love. She has the loudest purr in the house.
And our youngest is Ash, so named because he's all white except for some black-tipped hairs on his head. He thinks he's boss kitty, but he really isn't. Adores getting his head, neck and cheeks scratched.

I find if I move my cursor really fast then that get their attention onto the computer screen... I have a one-eyed cat named Sha-Sha who watches the computer screen and T.V. etc., more than any other cat ever has! :giggle:

Funny, where they end up liking to sleep. My bag seems to be one of the more popular spots as well. :D
