Cory's 5th Birthday!

I'm 5 years old today!!!  My mom asked that I turn it over to her...

Mom here!  I have a hard time believing that our little baby kitten is 5 years old.  She will always be a kitten to us.

 

Just a couple of weeks after Cory was born, I went to meet Ellie in her foster home.  I had not planned on adopting one of her kittens.  Cory was a weensy ball of fur and it wasn't until 2 weeks later when I went back to visit Ellie that we considered adopting Cory.  She was the only one of Ellie's kittens that had not found a home.  This photo was taken that day.  It was clear there was no way we were going to separate Cory from her momma.   We had to wait another 2 weeks before we could bring the girls home because Ellie had to wean all of her kits.   
Once Cory got home, she quickly settled in and stole our hearts.

Her love of socks started on day one!!!!

Turning it back over to you Cory...

Cory here!  I would love all of you to stay and enjoy some cheese!  Later in the evening dad will get out a guitar and I'll bring out the socks and we'll sing!  Join us!

Had Mumma remembered, we would have sent her out for some Bandon Sharp!!

They finally closed the little factory in Bandon--so we have to get it from Tillamook.

At least you finally got a day with only a little drizzle---and 60 degrees!! Maybe Spring is finally here.

Enjoy your birthday(we love the baby pictures!!!) and enjoy the better weather.
