This is a bit late, but I wanted to commemorate this little lady’s birthday before March completely gets away from me.
Officially, we have recorded her birthday as March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day because that’s the day the shelter had on their records. Bridget was one of five in a litter called the Irish Kittens. Our two daughters adopted the three female kitties plus one that was found behind a dumpster and added to the group.
That was in 2005. Bridget is the one on the left playing with Ripley’s tail. Ripley, and the one next to her, Midget (aka Colleen), have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Darby, the one on the right playing with Midget’s tail is still alive and living with our oldest daughter and family.
Bridget is a calico cat with green eyes and is now 14 years old. Age is catching up with her health-wise, but she’s still hanging in there. Most of her days are spent trying to avoid Cabo’s energetic pursuit of her. But when he’s outside, she will stealthily sneak out of her hiding places to let me know she needs attention.
So, Happy Birth Day to you, Bridget.
