Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! We’re skipping our usual Mews and Nips Saturday update today, because today we have more important things to write about. Today is my 9th Adoption Anniversary! Nine 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 really can’t believe that my little girl is going to be 10 years old later this year. It seems like only yesterday, this little kitten started to explore her new home and annoy her older sister Amber. She has slowed down just a little since then, but she sure doesn’t seem like an almost ten-year-old cat to me!
Allegra: The last nine years have been amazing. Thank you for loving me, Mom!
Ruby: You know I love you, too, Allegra, right? Even though I don’t always show it?
Allegra: Of course I do, Ruby. Although some days, it’s a little harder to believe than others…
Ruby: Never mind that. Will there be tuna cake?
Our regular Mews and Nips Saturday feature will return next week.
