But, this week, she joins the senior club. Yup, she turns 10.
Prior to adding Eamon to my household, I had serious difficulties in getting cats to reach their golden years. My first rescue had a fatal bladder problem, my first kitten struggled with kidney failure and the next cat I had developed a lung tumor. I started to wonder if I'd ever have seniors.
So I take special pride in breaking my losing streak. At the moment, my house has four senior cats, in a home with five cats total. I'm doing it right!
But in honor of Maggie's birthday, I thought I'd devote a little space to photos of her throughout the years. The "how big will my kitten get" post I did awhile back remains one of the most popular posts on this site (who knew?), and these photos might tell the tale of growth and maturity much better than charts and statistics do.
So here goes!
|First week at home. She's so fluffy!|
|She was also adept at scaling baby gates.|
|Staring out the window was a favorite hobby.|
|And it's one she still enjoys.|
|She has a playful side.|
|But she's just as content to rest.|
