On This Day Part 1

Remember those pom poms I made? well I strung them in a cute garland and place it on top of my bird's cage! I think they like it!

I suddenly had this huge urge to re-read all of my old paper back novels from my grade school days, I have so many, and these here are just my top favorites...

These 2 kitties are the loves of my life. Stay tuned in 2 days for the part 2 of this post, it involves them and it's such a great story that I would like to share with you all!

This part is sad though, get ready for some kleenexes...On this day 5 years ago, this sweet little kitty I was holding here slipped the bonds of earth and went into heaven. Her name was Contessa. She was very young (only 5 months old) when she died. I was 23 at the time, still in college, I was actually at my classes and when I returned home, it was a sight I did not want to see, she had strangled herself with her fishing pole cat toy around my dining room chair. My heart sank. So I called my parents and my dad made the hour drive to come get me and that he could bury her next to my Cleo (who passed seriously 10 weeks earlier). Contessa came after Cleo, I got her about a month after her passing hoping to mend that hole in my heart, but at the time of her death, my hole got even bigger. She was a sweet kitty, she meowed so much, and kept me company...I only had her for roughly a month, but she stole my heart and is still so badly missed even 5 years later. I love you Tessa, you are missed everyday.

On a lighter note, I would like to wish my cousin, Megan and her hubby Daniel a happy 1 year wedding anniversary!
