Celebrations - Gotcha Days and Birthdays

Raven Celebrates her Official 16th Birthday

When we adopted Raven we choose October 16 as her birthday. Earlier this year we had little hope that she would be with us today, so we celebrated her birthday in July.

It brings tears of joy to be celebrating her official October 16th birthday.

Here are two recent photos of our sweet ladycat.

Her simple birthday present needs a little explanation. Due to her health issues, she has eaten only canned food for many years. A couple weeks ago we found a dry food that agrees with her. She absolutely loves it, but we give her only about 2 tablespoons throughout the day so it doesn’t upset her system.

As a birthday treat, we’ve given her a crunchy 16th birthday celebration. Our sweet girl has been eagerly crunching away on extra little servings of dry food and purring with happiness. It’s wonderful that something so simple can brighter her day. And we’re so incredibly thankful that she’s still here bringing us joy.
