Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! Today is my 14th Adoption Anniversary! Fourteen 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 Mom and I have been together for 14 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’ll be 15 years old in August, I still feel and act like that little kitten a lot of the time.


Today we’re going to celebrate with lots of treats and even more snuggle time than on a normal day, and I’m going to have some tuna cake in Ruby’s memory!

    • Happy Gotcha Day! You look even more beautiful. I wish you many more Gotcha Days and a healthy life. Hope you had a nice Gotcha party.

  5. Don’t you love how the colors in our Torties really show up and glow as they get older? My Sophie was all black with blue eyes when we adopted her at 5 weeks. She had one small colorful mark by her eye. Today, at 11-years-old, she is just full of gold highlights and so beautiful.
