Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! Today is my 12th Adoption Anniversary! Twelve 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 and we spent eight too short years together before Ruby got sick and left us December of 2019.

I can’t believe that I’ve been with Mom for 12 years! Little did I know how amazing my life would turn out when she first came to see me at the animal hospital where I was staying after I was rescued.

Even though I’m almost 13 years old, I still feel like like that little kitten a lot of the time.

Thank you for bringing me home and loving me all these years, Mom!

I’m going to have some tuna cake in Ruby’s memory to celebrate. I’m pretty sure I won’t have to share it with Mom….
