Why? Because one year ago Toby joined the family!

He went from small and timid that first week

to large and spoiled shortly thereafter.

He has an enormous vocabulary of squeaks and chirps, he knows 9 words and phrases (treat, drink, snack, catnip, lettuce, let’s get up, good-bye, I’ll be back, and toy), and he’s the reason I got together a 72-hour kit.

So I guess today is also for celebrating the anniversary of me becoming a crazy cat lady.
