Happy Birthday!

Today my kitty turns 1 :)
Although I have a cat, I still wouldn't consider myself a "cat person."
Cats make me kind of uneasy. All except for my own that is!


That's my little nugget a few days after she was born. My mom rescues kittens and gets them fixed before finding homes for them. My mom rescued Boots' mom before she had the litter that Boots was a part of. If you're looking into getting a pet, I would highly suggest looking into rescuing one :) It's super rewarding! 

Boots acts more like a dog than she does a cat. I think that's why we get along so well.
She plays fetch. She growls when someone knocks on my front door. She is waiting at my front door when I get home. See? Dog status.

The reason I got her was because it was lonely living in my apartment without any roomies. I wanted another breathing thing in there, haha! I don't have time to dedicate to a puppy, and Boots was free (thanks, Mom!) so I figured, even though I was a proclaimed cat hater, that I would give it a try.

Turns out she's a pretty good cat to keep me company!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOOTS!

  5. Happy birthday sweet BOOTS!!!

    I love rescue animals myself!! We rescued Marley (our shephard/lab mix) and you're right... it's super rewarding, and I wish we had all the time in the world to rescue every animal that needed a home!

    Hope you have a nice can of tuna with a candle in it for Boots today ;)

    xo, Bev
