Today would have been Ruby’s 13th birthday, and as is often the case with these special days, I miss my precious girl even more today than I usually do. I don’t think I’ll ever come to terms with the fact that she died so young. She had so much life left to live, so many more years of irritating her big sister, and so many more tuna cakes to enjoy.
Today is also the first anniversary of this website!
A huge, heartfelt thank you to all of you who have stayed with me after I made the difficult decision a year ago to pass The Conscious Cat on to its new home, and welcome and thank you to all the new subscribers we keep adding every day. Purrs of Wisdom has grown faster than I could have imagined. I love continuing to bring you all the latest information about feline health, nutrition, behavior and lifestyle, as well as product and book reviews and our popular Sunday Quotes, featuring beautiful images of cats along with inspurrational quotes.
A word from Allegra
Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! I want to thank all of you, too! I love that Mom is not working quite as hard as she used to, although she still spends way more time on the computer than I’d like her to. I do my best to help her with her work. I sometimes write my own column. I also help her with product reviews, which is so much fun! Most importantly, I make sure Mom takes enough breaks, although I have yet to teach her how to nap. Humans just don’t get how important naps are! But right now I have to make sure the tuna cake we’re going to have later is ready, so back to Mom, who has something exciting to tell you!
