So just like my dog recently experienced, my cat, Shirley, is now 14! I'll try to post a picture of her in the morning. Either right before or when her mom was pregnant, I told my mom I wanted a black and white girl kitten. She was the ONLY black and white female in the litter. We can even trace back her lineage to her great grandma. Esmeralda, then Zenith, then Shirley's mom whose name escapes me, then Shirley. Shirley thinks she's the queen of everything, but is very loveable. And very active for her age. Happy birthday Shirley!
