An Anniversary

Well kids, today is the one year anniversary of Kip coming to live with us.  As most of you know our friend Chrystal rescued him when he was a little wild thing along with his brothers Charms, Elfin and Monkey.  Here he is peeking out from behind his brother Elfin.


I always think it's funny that Kip was the smallest of his litter because he has grown into the biggest of the cats here....my gentle giant.


I can't believe a year has passed so quickly and yet it seems like Kip has always been with us.  He is such a  sweet and happy boy, I thank my lucky stars that Chrystal saved him and he came into my life!!!


My beautiful black velvet panther :-)

Happy AnniFURSary, Kip! It is indeed difficult to belief it's been one year already.

You melded in so perfectly with all your brothers and weren't any bother at all. It was surely meant to be.

We hope you have many, many, many years of happiness together with your furever furmily.

Bellen said...

A year already? I sometimes think that if you want to travel at light-speed, just count anniversaries. But Kip is a handsome and lucky boy. He no doubts feels as if he's always been with you.

OMCs Kip...boy a year passes quickly when you are in your best ever furever home. Nov. 5th is certainly your lucky day and a red letter day for you Peeps and your sibs.

My uncle was once owned by a house panther...named Ursala.
Happy Gotcha day to you
Hugs Madi and Mom

Kip, we are so glad you are in your wonderful home and safe! We can't believe you and the kitten babies are already one year olds! Ack! Time flies :)
And about your size...Malou and Levon were the smallest kittens our friend had seen her devons have in fifteen years of breeding devons and guess what? They are now at one year of age, the BIGGEST devons she has ever bred! Levon is HUGE for a devon and even BIG for a regular cat size! :)
