It’s my birthday today! I’m three years old! I can’t wait to see what Mom and Ruby have in store for me today.


It’s hard to believe that I was ever this tiny. When I came to live with Mom, I was seven months old. The photo above was taken the day Mom met me for the first time.

Amber showing Allegra the ropes

My older sister Amber showed me the ropes. I know I probably drove her crazy. All I wanted to do was play, and she didn’t seem to understand that. I was sad when she passed away only five weeks after I arrived.

A little less than a year later, I got to be big sister to Ruby and show her the ropes. It had been just me and Mom for all that time, and while I loved being an only kitty and Mom played with me a lot, it was also fun to have someone of my own kind to play with and chase through the house.

Ooh, I see Mom just brought out some packages with pretty paper and ribbons! I bet they’re for me! I’m the luckiest cat in the world!

  1. Happy Birthday Allegra!! Your birthday was the first anniversary of my heart cat Harri’s passing, so it was a tough day for me, but it looks like you had a fun day being spoiled! 9/1 I’ll celebrate my Bessie Lou’s 1st birthday. We got her as a 3 week old kitten to foster and I can’t believe she’s 1 already!! I have her party planned, right down to the plate of her raw food with a #1 candle in it!
