It’s hard to believe that we’re coming up on three years since Ruby has been gone, after being diagnosed with advanced kidney disease. I miss her every day, and with the holidays coming up, missing her is starting to feel like a physical ache again sometimes. I’m grateful I have eight years of Ruby’s Reflections on this site to comfort me and remind me of some of the cute things she did, and I love sharing the memories with you.

Today we’re going all the way back to Ruby’s first post, which she “wrote” three weeks after she joined our family. She was such a happy little cat from the very first day she came to our home.
