Happy Birthday Penny!

Or rather, happy cativersary to us, because we got Penny when she was about 12 weeks old.

I know I don't talk about my cats a lot (ha!) so I know you won't mind if I waste a whole post on my first baby.

She's so pretty. And lovey. And a licker, gah she will lick your face all the live long day. And she loves the shit out of me. Plus, she's cute.

2 years ago, I begged KC - please let's go 'just look' at cats and see, please? He wasn't fond of the whole cat idea, he'd never had one and thought it would be too much work as we were just about to move into our first apartment together. Little did he know that I don't 'just look' and I stuck my finger in a cage and she came up to me immediately and started licking (I should have known then!) and I fell head over heels and she was just so pretty.

It was just before Halloween, and we put in an application to take her home that day. I had never 'adopted' a pet before so I was worried, what if they don't give her to us? My heart would be broken. But they did, it just took them a week because they needed to make sure we weren't going to sacrifice her. W.T.F.

KC now loves cats as much as me. Just in case you didn't get that from the fact that we have 3. #crazycatfamily.

Anywho. Love you Penny girl. I'll give you some tuna tonight.

the day we brought her home, awwww.

asking to get rolled over.

You are welcome for your daily dose of pretty kitty.

Do you celebrate your pets birthdays or anniversaries?

  1. Happy cataversary! I have quite a few similar pics of Jimmy in a shoebox. It seems to be a match made in heaven, regardless how small the box is they will find a way to cram themselves in there!

  13. She is so adorable! I love her long hair and whiskers! I had a cat when I was young and have recently considered getting one for my son. I am more of a dog person but dogs require more time than I have right now. Many decisions to make.

  20. Aww, what a cutie. Love her whiskers. :) I'm super allergic to cats, unfortunately. My aunt used to have a kitty that looked like Penny! And several others....she loves taking in any animal really but especially cats. :)

  22. !!!! You have made me miss my little cat-babies SO. MUCH. I cannot WAIT to have them back and crawling all over me again. Neal (my little panther boy) turned 4 last month, and Choko, the ringleader and badass extraordinaire, turned 2 in August. Penny is GORGEOUS. Those shots of her stretching and showing her little belly are too friggin adorable. I lol'd at the tree skirt photo. The cat I used to have before I adopted the two I have now loved rolling around on the tree skirt and getting fake snow stuck all over her :')

  28. LOL!!! That shoebox pic is my absolute favorite! I don't have any pets but I had a lot growing up (horses, cats, goats, dogs, mules...you know, the normal things) and we actually never celebrated their birthdays or anniversaries! Your cats are lucky to have such a thoughtful mom!

  34. ALL THE CUTENESS!!!

    I definitely celebrate my dogs' birthdays, presents, treats, and everything.. Not so much the cat because we don't know when she was born but we do celebrate the time of year we started taking care of her (she was a stray).

  35. Oh my goodness her whiskers are ADORABLE! Happy birthday Miss. Penny! And of COURSE we celebrate JC's birthday. It should be a national holiday if you ask me.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Aw, Happy Birthday to Penny. I am a total cat person. We really don't celebrate our cat's birthday though. But he does get treats nightly. So he might think that his birthday is every night.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Happy birthday to her! I am not a cat person...bc of my stupid allergies! But, we are major dog people, so I completely understand and love celebrating pets birthdays. That are members of the family!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Of course I celebrate my cat's birthdays! Tell Penny I hope she has a good one! She's adorbs!

    ReplyDelete

  42. The first year Chris and I were married I wanted to get a black kitten and name her Rose. We will celebrate our 19th anniversary next May and still no kitten.

  43. She is so cute! Hope she got a special treat for her birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am definitely not a cat person, although I do like petting them when they belong to other people. My sister has a cat and when I go visit her and sleep on the couch I tend to wake up in the middle of the night with their cat on my chest. I love it!
