Happy 6th Birthday, Delilah!

Today is the day! The day dedicated to celebrating the one and only…

DELILAH!

Happy 6th Birthday, Delilah!

Delilah was the first kitty addition to the Hall family, way back before Bobby and I were married. She was a Christmas gift from Bobby and his parents. The best Christmas gift I’ve ever gotten 🙂

She was so teeny tiny when we brought her home from PetSmart. I was in college at the time, so I had to leave her at home during the day when I was in class. I would leave her on my bed, curled up in a fleecy blanket, and when I got home, she would always be right where I left her. Sadly, I don’t have a picture of that, but I do have a cute one of her favorite sleep spot…

When she was a kitten, she would sleep on my chest, draped across my neck every night. Now, she’s too big for that, so she takes her spot above my head on my pillow!

Her other favorite spot is on our shoulders. She can frequently be found on either mine or Bobby’s shoulders – particularly if we are practicing our music! Once a shoulder kitty, always a shoulder kitty!

Delilah,
It’s so hard to believe you are 6 years old! My, how time flies! Though you aren’t a kitten anymore, you will always be my Baby Deli. We love you and look forward to many more years of celebrating you! Happy Birthday!
Love,
Mom

    Happy birthday, Delilah! Here’s a secret for you: my human has always wanted a shoulder kitty – but she’s never had one.

    Hi, Delilah! Happy Birthday to YOU…a wee bit late…

    When petcretary got back in from being out of town, Ihelped her make you a card:

    That’s the code, you can save/post it where you’d like.
    You sure were a sweet wee kitten, and now you have become a furry purrty and gracious ladycat:)

    My doggy brofurs, petcretary and I hope you get to catabrate oodles more birthdays!
