Allegra’s World: 9th Adoption Anniversary


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.

    Just wanted to tell you how helpful you and The Conscious Cat have been for me. I found your words of comfort invaluable after my sweet Sammy went to the Rainbow Bridge.He made it to 18 1/2. Reading about others facing the same journey of loss, pain, and comforting memories really helped me in my recovery. When I was able to open my heart again, I brought darling Dawn home. Information and product reviews I read on your site have been so very helpful. Thank you.

    What a lovely story! Allegra, you must’ve been devastated when your older sister, Amber, passed on, even though you won’t admit it, and that goes for you, too, Ms King. Then here comes Ruby prancing thru the door, and Allegra, you had to be saying, ‘oh, no not a replacement.’ However, to you, Ms King, Allegra and Ruby, all three of you are just the best friends in my book. Have a Happy Anniversary!

    Isn’t it wonderful how her colors have really popped out as she has gotten a little older? I found that to be the same with my tortie, Sophie. When she gets on my lap and the sun shines in on her, I feel like I have struck a gold mine! She’s just gorgeous!

    Happy Happy Birthday/Adoption Day, beautiful Allegra!
