Happy 5th Birthday, Lily

Today, my cat, Lily, turns 5. Well... sort of. We adopted her 5 years ago today. We got her from the humane society when she was around 3 months old, so we don't know for sure when she was actually born. So instead of celebrating her birthday, we celebrate her adoption day.

This year, to celebrate her adoption/birthday we're going to the vet to get rabies shots! (No, we don't usually celebrate a whole lot more than this. She might get canned food instead of her regular dry food or a new mouse. We're really not crazy, wacky cat people.)

Here's a few photos of Lily throughout the years:
1. Jason and Baby Lily, this was the first day she was with us (we had only been dating for 3.5 weeks and I convinced Jason we needed a cat), 2. Lily's Sink Bed, she loves napping in here, 3. Jason and Lily Day One, they were both so small!, 4. Lily's Fabric Stash, how can one sew and not have a cat to hide in their fabric?, 5. Jason and a Younger Lily, this was probably sometime in 2005, 6. Lily 60s Yearbook Style Photo, this was just taken yesterday.

So, Lily... we love you and are glad you decided you could put up with us for these 5 years.

What a sweetheart! We celebrated my pup's 7th b-day on Sunday, which was really the day we adopted her from the pound 5 years ago, but she was 2 years old then so we figure she's about 7 now:-)
I do the same with my cat too, give him a new toy, collar, or some canned food, so your not crazy,lol!
Oh, and Happy Birthday Lily!
