Today is my birthday!
And it’s also this guys birthday! On April 18, 2006 at 12:01 am my cat Grey Cat decided she would give birth on our bed. After quickly getting a box to put her in Grey Cat gave birth to four beautiful bundles of joy! Boo was the last kitten to be born. And almost was not – since Grey Cat herself was just a year old and a single mom she gave up halfway through Boo Boo’s birth. So Shane had to pull him out! I know so gross. I was a witness to the first two kittens births and decided that was all I could take so I passed out. Lucky for Grey Cat and Boo Boo – Shane was a trooper and stayed and helped Boo Boo. Now Boo Boo is six and the skinniest heaviest cat ever! And oddly enough, Grey Cat and him DO NOT get along! Well Boo Boo loves her but Grey cat does not return the affection
So here is to Boo Boo and me and a couple of others!
