Happy Birthday Nina! 11 years ago today I brought home a tiny kitten that was no bigger than a sock from the Citizens Committee for the Lakewood Animal Shelter (CCLAS). Now my baby's all grown up, but I can't say at all independent, she's about as needy as they come but I wouldn't have it any other way!
Nina and Spooky were instant best friends. Or maybe they better wording is Spooky patiently tolerated Nina's kitten craziness. Nina looked up to Spooky, followed her around and imitated her actions. Sadly Spooky passed away a few years ago.
We now have a younger black cat Elvis, though by looking at his size you wouldn't think he was half her age, who ironically follows her around and imitates her actions. Too bad she is not as tolerant to him as Spooky was to her.
Today her only plans are to sit on my lap with the electric blanket on. But that's OK because it's your birthday baby and you can do whatever you want today!
