Adoption Diaries: 3 Years of Food Theft, Furniture Destruction and Cuddly, Adorable Joy!
Elyse’s Adoption Diary:
Allow me to be a bit self-indulgent and wish my own two kitties a Happy Birthday today!
I adopted Bruce and Maow when they were itty bitty. Three years later, they still sleep in the drawer (and I still get startled when I open it and someone jumps out).
This is a photo taken from their first birthday party. I learned that trying to get a party hat on them for my own amusement will never be acceptable. I also learned that a thawed frozen crab cake, which I thought was a very generous gift, will not fool my epicurean eaters. If it’s not fresh, they say “No thank you, we’ll have your dinner instead.”
This year’s birthday party is coming up later this week. Any suggestions on a nice birthday treat for the feline foodies? Leave me a comment!
Now, on to the animals at the ASPCA. Kitten season is in full swingmeaning baby kittens are going to be popping up in drawers all over the country. But lately we’ve also been housing a number of puppies.
As you can see, they’re pretty relaxed with us! But the pups and kitties find homes quickly, of course. Our older guys and gals usually need a bit more help.

How ‘bout we switch places today, and you provide the tip! Please leave a comment suggesting a special birthday treat for cats.
