Today is the 1 year anniversary of the date we brought Sophie home from the SPCA. (You can find the blog entry here.

Why 2.5 birthday you ask? Well, she was 1.5 year when I got her. But for me, birthday begins the day we bring them home. But it doesn’t seem right to round down or up. So happy 2.5 birthday it is! Sophie didn’t complain about it so I figure she probably agrees as well.

She has come a long way since the first day I brought her home. She was so sick and skinny, but now she’s put on some weight and fluffed out. She’s a bundle of cuddly chubby cat with lots of fur.

She also has some really cute habits. When I come home from work, she greets me at the front door. She comes when you call her name. She’s more like a little dog than a cat.

Anyway, Joe brought over a cake and I made dinner. I asked for a fish flavored cake (in honor of the cat!) but it appears that fish flavor cake is not as popular hence was not available. Instead we had a fabulous chocolate cake from a local bakery in Saratoga.

After dinner we all put on the party hat I got on Friday and put the candle on the cake and took pictures.

The dog didn’t want to wear the party hat (jealous perhaps?!) and the cat got tired of us man handling her trying to get a photo of her with a hat.

It took a while tried to get a photo of all of us. I didn’t really know how to use the timer, and so we had to hold the cat many many times. As you can see, though the cat look mad, she was a good sport about getting her photo taken. She ran away as soon as the photo was taken.

All of us
