Hey guys! Happy 1st day of April. Remember to say "rabbits rabbits" and try not to get fooled!
While everyone was celebrating Easter yesterday, I was celebrating my kitty's 14th birthday. It makes me sad that she is getting so old, at 14 she's one old lady. My lucky number happens to be 14, and when I turned 14 my mom told me that it was going to be my special year. Well this message is for Muffin: I hope 14 is your special year too. You have been there for me for the toughest times and the best times, and even my own 14th birthday. For those that don't know Muffin's story, I would love to share it in honor of her birthday.
Ok, are you ready for a tear jerker? When I was young, around 8 or 9, I was allowed to get a kitten for my birthday. Her name was Sugar and she was the sweetest cat. I carried her around; my dad even took her to work to show his dental patients. She was really my best friend. When she was 9 months old she got very sick and it progressed to her brain. And when she was 10 months old, I had lost my best friend. I took her to the vet to put her to sleep, and I was crying and hugging her in the waiting room. The vet took her and I said my last goodbye. But he felt so bad. He told me that a very little kitten, about 4 weeks old, was abandoned at the door of the vet with a broken leg. He said that once she was healed and old enough to adopt, that I could have her. I was still sad about losing Sugar, but I said yes. A few weeks later, I picked up Sugar’s ashes (which I keep on my shelf) as well as my new kitty, that I had named Muffin. She had a pin in her leg while it healed, and she was so small. But very soon she became my best friend, and the rest is history. Are you guys crying? Because I am!
She has taught me the meaning of unconditional love, and I don't know where I would be without her.
Since it was such a big birthday for her, I wanted to celebrate right! Muffin loves to take nibbles from my cupcakes when my dad brings me home one, so I got her her own cupcake for her special day!
I made her a special cat food dinner, wished her a special happy 14th birthday, and then we enjoyed a vanilla cupcake. Only the best for my boo!
Do you have a special pet in your life too?
Bye from the Veggie Side!
