Allegra-8th-adoption-anniversary

Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! Today is my 8th Adoption Anniversary! Eight 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. Then it was just Mom and me for almost a year before Ruby joined our family. I love my life with Mom. And Ruby. Although there are days when I wonder whether bringing Ruby home was really such a good idea…

Ruby: blows raspberry at Allegra.

Ingrid: Allegra was about seven months old when I adopted her. I find it hard to believe that my gorgeous girl will be nine years old later this year. It seems like only yesterday, this little kitten started to explore her new home. While she has slowed down just a little since then, she still doesn’t seem like an almost nine-year-old cat to me!

Allegra: The last eight years have been so wonderful! I love you, Mom!

Ruby: What about me, Allegra? Don’t you love me, too?

Allegra: Sigh. Oh little one, you know I do. Although some days, you’re a little harder to love than others…

25 Comments on Allegra’s World: 8th Adoption Anniversary

  1. It looks like her eyes changed from copper to green. I’ve never seen that happen. I have three torties — one has gooseberry green eyes and the other two have amber (not copper) eyes. All of them came as adults, so I don’t know what color their eyes were as kittens.

    • I think it’s just the different lighting in the two photos, Kaia – Allegra’s eyes were always green. Ruby’s, however, were an amber color when she was a kitten and gradually changed to green – something I’d never seen until I adopted her.

  2. Thank you for all the good wishes! The anniversary girl had a purrfect day lounging in sun puddles, playing with Ruby and talking lots and lots of naps. 🙂

  3. Happy Anniversary Allegra and family!
