Well I am now a year old, my birthday was on Friday the 3rd! The peeps can not believe it. They feel like just the other day I was a itty bitty squeaky little 2 week old kitten. They are so happy to see what a big healthy beautiful girl I have grown into especially since I had a bit of a rough start to my life.

When I was about 2 weeks my 2 siblings, myself and 3 other kittens (who looked to be about a week or so older)we left in the back of an abandoned car on a hot summer day. Luckily some nice person heard our cries and brought us to a local vet. We were all very hungry and a bit skinny so the people at the vet gave us some milk and placed us in a foster home (we stayed with a 2 different employees at first before going to be fostered by what is now my forever home. There were so many of us and with the fact that 3 of them were a bit older we were kind of a hard group to care for. As we were starting to be weaned the older kittens took to it quite easily & quickly and my brother started too as well even though he was still able to be bottle fed but myself & my sister Bug did not even like the idea of being off the bottle so we had to stay in foster for a little bit longer while the 3 older kittens & my brother soon found their forever homes. A few days after the other kittens left Bug & I got very ill. Bug was the runt & had always been a tad sickly but she had gotten worse one day, and on the same day I passed out. Luckily it was while I was at the vet (my girl brought us with her when she went to work) so they jumped into action & gave me fluids and meds but I was not in good shape. The peeps were so afraid that something was going to happen to us. Luckily after a day or so I started feeling better, and Bug had some progress too. Sadly on the day that I was officially out of the woods, Bug died. She went downhill suddenly & there was nothing that could be done, it was very sad. With just me left the peeps focused on finding me a home but after 3 of them fell through it was pretty clear I wasn't going anywhere!

I have totally forgotten about my rough start! I am a big spunky & happy girl now! I love my peeps and they love me dearly! They were so devastated when Clemy passed away and I really helped heal their broken hearts. So of course when it was my birthday they had to celebrate! I got lots of extra attention (which I looooooved!) and food too, they even gave me a whole slice of deli chicken! It was awesome. I also got two new toys. A little toy shaped like a fly, that is fun to bat around, and this super fun stick toy that has a large piece of fake fur attached to it that you chase around. It is the best!! I had a pretty great birthday, and I am excited to take on this next year of my life!

Thanks pals for all the birthday wishes!
Also I am a daily diary pick today, woohoo! Thanks HQ!
