Kitties, this is the day I celebrate as my birthday. So did Admiral Hestorb. This is because the cat that came way before me and the Admiral, Robin, passed away to the Rainbow Bridge on that date many years ago. When Admiral came to stay with mom, her birthday was set as December 11th at the Vet's. Close enough, as it was figured to be October. She was a rescued kitten when mom got her so it was fairly easy to tell.
Me, I follow the same loving thought and celebrate my birthday on this day. We reckon I am now 5 years old. My Gotcha Day is easy though. Mommy sure wrote that down. Coming in January. xoxoxoxox
My best birfday present is you. Each kitty and woofie out there who visits me. Love to you.
