HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DELANEY!
Today is Delaney's first birthday! I'm so excited and I've even gone ahead and planned festivities for this evening. I'm going to be making her a wet cat food "cake" along with "sprinkles" made out of healthy kitty treats. And she's going to have a birthday photo shoot (which you'll all see after the fact, of course!) and then it'll be present time! I bought her a new cat teaser since she loves them as well as a couple of other small bat-around toys. She'll have to share with Cassie, of course, but that's okay since I never got to celebrate Cassidy's birthday with her since I was ill and in the hospital. So, really, this will be a combo birthday celebration for both of my special girls .
But since this is really Delaney's day, let me tell you a little bit about the birthday girl. Laney is the funniest, most rambunctious, silliest, most out-of-control kitten I've ever known. I know you've all heard the story about a zillion times, but when I first met Delaney she was perched on the shoulder of a shelter volunteer. And, within seconds, she had leapt from his shoulders on to mine which is where she remained throughout the entire adoption process. And, let me tell you, she hasn't changed one bit since coming home! She's my spunky girl and can always make me laugh. But, that's certainly not the only reason I love her.
Delaney is incredibly sweet. When I'm sitting on my bed -- folding laundry, reading, or doing whatever -- she'll come up behind me, put her paws very gently on my back and nuzzle her face into my neck. She's also always ready for a snuggle and is the very definition of a lap cat. She is my baby girl and loves to be held, cradled, hugged, and kissed. She's a lover, for sure, and can make even the hardest of hearts melt upon contact .
I've had Lanester for a couple of months now and I can't possibly imagine life without her in it. And that's why it's party time today! Loving Delaney comes easily, but now it's time to celebrate her, honor her, and spoil her even more than she already is! Isn't that what having a cat in your life is all about?!
So, once again, Happy Birthday my sweet girl. You may be a year old now, but you're still my baby girl. I loved you the first moment I saw you and I'll love you to infinity and beyond!
(And, Cass, I love you too! Happy Belated Birthday my sweets!)
