I am Fourteen!

It's me, Millie. Today is my birthday. Actually, nobody knows what my real birthday is, so my Mom guessed, and picked April 5. It's probably close to the real thing, but nobody knows, so today it is.

Funny thing about the first few months of my life. As a feral kitty, my life expectancy was one year. I almost didn't even get that far. I was barely three months old when I almost went to the Bridge, but I got really lucky.

When I was four months old, I came to New Hampster to live with Mom, and I have been here ever since. Today I celebrate my fourteenth birthday. I am now a senior kitty, living the good life. I have a terrific Mom, not one but TWO kitty condos, FOUR cat hammicks and lots of good places to nap. I have a water fountain, and a great selection of foods, and I get treats nice and regular. I even have a front porch where I can sit whenever I want when the weather is warmish.

Happy Birthday to me, and to all the kits and cats I have known, and all the human friends my Mom and I have made over the years, thanks very much.

Happy Birthday Millie. Our (Scampy & Shrimpy) "birthday" is April 15th. And yes our "Mom" guessed at that since we were left at the vet's office front door. We will be 9 years old this year

Wow. I have followed Millie since her rescue and the naming submissions to Millie's new home. I am so happy for you to have found a long and loving furrever home. All three of my fur-babies have crossed the bridge but I still have their Gizzy quilts and PTU quilts.

Happy Birthday Millie, I think I have known you for 12 years now. Miss not hearing from you but I know you are doing well. Your mom and I both love quilting which was a plus when I met you. Many happy more birthdays

Happy Birthday Millie! Your blog is how I came to love your Mom. The minute I read your story and saw your furry little face I was a fan. My Sadie has gone to the bridge (10 months ago) and I still miss her terribly. But today is your day!!

Stay warm and cozy and I hope you have a wonderful day,

Susan from So. Cal.
