Allegra’s World: Birthday girl
It’s my birthday today! I’m three years old! I can’t wait to see what Mom and Ruby have in store for me today.
It’s hard to believe that I was ever this tiny. When I came to live with Mom, I was seven months old. The photo above was taken the day Mom met me for the first time.
My older sister Amber showed me the ropes. I know I probably drove her crazy. All I wanted to do was play, and she didn’t seem to understand that. I was sad when she passed away only five weeks after I arrived.
A little less than a year later, I got to be big sister to Ruby and show her the ropes. It had been just me and Mom for all that time, and while I loved being an only kitty and Mom played with me a lot, it was also fun to have someone of my own kind to play with and chase through the house.
Ooh, I see Mom just brought out some packages with pretty paper and ribbons! I bet they’re for me! I’m the luckiest cat in the world!
