Well, five years ago, this happened –
We became first time cat parents.
We’d never had cats before.
Until this little adorable thing followed our daughters home from a walk to the mall. I told them if she stayed around a few nights, I’d consider keeping her. Well, she never left!
Today, we celebrate her arrival because we don’t know when she was born. The vet did say she was like a teenager age when we took her in.
And, of course, I’m celebrating this stuff!
We couldn’t really decide just what to call her. Biscuit, Moon or Luna. At the time, we settled (sort of) on Luna. She now responds to Kitty Kitty or Meow Meow. Go figure. Guess that’s a cat for you!
After a year, we had this celebration –
Super cute picture! You can see her blue, blue eyes! They really are a beautiful light blue shade!
Today, we did something similar –
Ha-ha! Five years for ya!!
Despite the licking of the chops, she really had NO interest in our tuna ‘cake’.
Going back to the card for her, it was lots of fun to create! The repeated FIFTH stamping was a bit challenging because the stamp actually said, TWENTY-FIFTH and I had to not ink up the TWENTY- part. Not too bad since these are the photopolymer stamps that you can see through.
I tried to color the cat like her for more realistic appeal. Not too bad. She always sits very upright and precarious with her tail curled around just so. She has long since worn her collar with the bell, but it made this look more cat-like.
She is a typical Flame Point Siamese – she doesn’t like anyone! Anyone but me that is. The family ribs me about it all the time – guess they’re just jealous…..
I’d love to read what you think about my special post today! Pets are our family. We celebrate them too!
(This special Luna-versary took place on January 7th – yesterday – but she slept half the day away. So I just posted today instead!)
