Ruby’s Reflections: It’s my 9th Birthday!


Hi everyone, it’s Ruby! Guess what! There’s not going to be a Mews and Nips today, because something much more important is happening today: it’s my birthday! I’m nine years old today! Mom still calls me her kitten, but I think she better start treating me like the mature cat I’ve become. I’m all grown up!

Allegra: You know, maybe some of our readers would rather get the week’s highlights like they usually do on Saturday. They might not appreciate you taking over the blog!

Ruby: Oh Allegra, of course they won’t mind. They all love me because I’m so cute and special, and today, I’m the birthday princess!

Allegra: You’re special alright…

Ruby: blows raspberry at Allegra. Hey, you better be nice to me, or you’re not going to get any of my tuna cake. There is going to be tuna cake, right?

    I couldn’t end the day without wishing the most prescious gem of the Tortie cats, none other than ‘Ruby’ a very special ninth year birthday greeting. Happy, Happy Birthday Ruby. May you have many more, and I hope all of them shower you with many hugs and kisses, many presents, and of course your most special food in the world ‘Tuna Cake’. I will always love you!

    Happy birthday Ruby!

    My cats are growing up too, and I hate it. I want them to stay my kittens for the rest of their lives.

    But I also love that they’re adults. It’s exciting to see how they’ve matured.

    Happy Birthday, Ruby!
    Beautiful as a kitten and as a mature woman.
    And kudos, Ingrid, for your care of your beauties: Look at the gorgeous, healthy coat on the mature Ruby!
    Maybe you could do a feature about things that promote healthy coats? Once you get past all the tuna cake and party hats, of course….

    Oh, Ruby, you are such a pretty girl. You may take over anything as you like. Torties like you are special and as with my Tortie, I have crowned her the Queen. Whatever you want is yours. As you can see, I don’t spoil my baby much, do I?

    I hope you have a spectacular birthday, Ruby, and I hope your tuna cake is yummy. (I can’t help but have a little gag in my throat as I type that.)
