Birthday, cats and pictures

Sunday, September 15, 2013

Yesterday was my babies birthday party. They turn the big 9 today!!

They are 1 day old here. Don't I look thrilled? :)

all the boys

They've all grown so much since this picture.

My mom made their cakes/cupcakes for the party yesterday

Now to some sad news. On Friday, we had to put our 16 year old cat to sleep. We knew it would be soon but it came on very quickly. Thinking back on this past week, it's almost like she knew and was saying goodbye to everyone. She slept in all the boys rooms each night and even went next door and was laying down there for awhile.

Rocky with my now 15 year old. She always loved a blanket-- didn't matter who it was on!

All curled up in a ball :)

It's weird to be a household with no cat. I've had cats my whole life. But Rocky had a great, long life and she will be missed.

    Thanks everyone. Friday was a hard day but spending Saturday with family celebrating the boys' birthday definitely helped.

    So sorry to hear about your cat! Pets really become part of our lives and it is so sad to see them go.

    We had to put our 17-year old family dog down when I was about 22. He was with me since I was 5 years old! It was really difficult and I can only imagine that is how you and your kids are feeling right now. Just try to remember your kitty as she once was (healthy and beautiful) and know that you gave her a wonderful life.

    Thinking of you and your family with the death of your furry family member One of mine is curled up next to me and they are such an important part of the family. Hoping some fun kitty memories are comforting you through your grief!

    On a happier note, your mom is so incredibly talented! The fondant on those cakes is so beautiful! Happy birthday to your boys.
