Adopted & Adored: Shadow turns 20!

September 14, 2014

We were recently emailed one of the sweetest birthday photo boards that sent us all into meow overload in the office.

Shadow, currently holds the record for being our oldest adopted cat (that we’re aware of) and celebrated her 20th birthday surrounded by her loving and all-grown-up family this August. Shadow’s owner Melissa sent us some birthday snaps of this milestone. We have written about shadow previous on her 18th birthday and in May we interviewed Melissa on Pets-A-Loud!
She wrote,

2014-08-17 13.08.30“I am writing to let you know that we had a special celebration for Shadow’s 20th birthday on 17 August. All our immediate family was there and we were joined by extended family and friends for a morning tea.

We felt that this was such an important milestone in this remarkable cat’s life.

We had cat shaped biscuits and a birthday cake, both of which were very popular with the people.

Shadow seemed a little bemused by the attention, and was definitely puzzled by the candles on the cake. She did however enjoy a special can of tuna.

I am sending a couple of photos we took on the day. The photo board had some lovely memories of the past 20 years with Shadow, since we adopted her from The Lost Dogs’ Home as a little kitten.”pic-4
