Happy Birthday, Delilah!!! It’s hard to believe my girl is 8. Holy cow, where has the time gone?! It seems like only yesterday that Bobby and I went to PetSmart and fell in love with that sweet, little kitten. Little did we know that Delilah would be the first of many adoptions… 😉
Delilah was such a good kitten. When we adopted her, Bobby and I were engaged, and I was living at his parent’s house finishing up with school. When I’d leave for school in the morning, I’d create a little cocoon around her with a fleece blanket, and she’d snuggle in and go to sleep. When I’d get home from school, she would be right where I left her in that blanket, waiting for me. When I’d go to bed, she would sleep across my neck every night. We were bonded right away.
Fast forward to today, and Delilah still sleeps with me every night. Thankfully not around my neck anymore (she’s a bit too big for that to be comfortable), but she always snuggles in right beside me, under the covers with her head resting on either my shoulder or my pillow. I usually get a few good face kisses before I drift off to sleep too.
Well, Happy Birthday, Delilah. You are as sweet as ever and bring so much joy to our home. We love you SO much and are excited to be celebrating YOU today!
