Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! Guess what! Today is my 5th adoption anniversary! Can you believe it? Five years ago today, Mom brought me home to live with her and Amber. Sadly, I never got to know Amber really well, because she passed away six weeks after I arrived. After Amber’s passing, it was just Mom and me for almost a year before Ruby joined our family. The jury is still out whether that was a good idea…
Ruby: blows raspberry at Allegra.
Ingrid: They say you really notice the passage of time when you watch your kids grow up, and while it’s not as obviously visible with cats, it’s hard to believe it’s been five years, and my beautiful girl will be six years old later this year. The top left photo in the collage shows her the day I met her.
Allegra: The last five years have been the best! I love you Mom!
Ruby: impatiently taps paw
Allegra: Okay, Ruby, I love you, too.
