Elayne’s 10th Birthday | Celebrating Our Sweet Grey Girl

Ten years ago, Zach and I adopted our sweet Lady Elayne the Grey, E for short. 


As we walked through the halls of the animal shelter here in town, this pudgy grey kitten climbed the door of her cage and meowed at the top of her lungs as if to say “pick me, pick me!” How could we not? She has been our girl ever since. 

On that day, we also adopted her brother, Oscar. A grumpy black kitten from the back of the cage that hissed at me when I picked him up. I loved him instantly. He was afraid of everything, especially ceiling fans and the Christmas tree. But he loved Elayne. He and Elayne were total besties. They grew up together and I am so glad that they had each other to play with. About five years ago, I discovered a tumor on Oscar’s leg. It grew pretty rapidly and sadly our sweet Ozzie started to decline. E comforted him and stayed close to his side, especially in his final days. 

Elayne is a tenacious little cat. From losing her brother, to moving to a new home and gaining three new sisters over the years, she has always remained the same sweet little lady. She has been a constant in our lives over the last decade and I am so grateful for that. She has the most gentle nature of any cat I’ve ever met and I look forward to listening to her purr as I drift off to sleep. She is a gem, that’s for sure! 

Happy Birthday, E!

(Yeah.. celebrating a cat’s birthday might be a little over the top, but around here, pets are family!)
