Allegra’s World: It’s My 11th Birthday

Allegra-11th-birthday

Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! I’m eleven years old today!

Mom says she can’t believe how fast time goes by. When she looks at me she still sees the seven-month-old kitten she brought home more than ten years ago. The photo below shows me a few days after I came home.

This birthday is bittersweet for Mom and me. It’s my first birthday without my little sister. I know Mom is going to make this day special for me, and we’ll have a piece of tuna cake and remember Ruby together. Well, I will have tuna cake, anyway. Maybe Mom will pass…. More tuna cake for me!

    A very belated Birthday Allegra. I hope you had a wonderful day with mom. You both deserve all of the happiness you can get. Birthdays can be rough when we miss a piece of ourselves but I know that you and mom made the most of it!

    Happy belated birthday, Allegra. If mom doesn’t want any tuna cake, Winston and Dawn will share a slice. If you polished it off already, that’s OK, too.

    Thank you for all the birthday wishes! The birthday princess had a beautiful day. There was tuna cake, followed by naps in sun puddles, and lots of purrs and kisses.

    I agree with some others who have posted before me that your sister Ruby is watching over you and your mom and that she would want both of you to enjoy today.

    Happy Birthday Allegra! You take good care of your momma. I’m sure she takes good care of you. I know you both still miss Ruby but she’s really okay. God LOVES kitties and He’s taking GOOD care of her. He will take good care of you too when you get your angel wings and we’ll ALL live happily together forever in heaven someday where every day is like a birthday party!
