Opal the Human (not to be confused with Opal the Kitten) is turning TEN tomorrow. We all love Opal and have enjoyed watching her grow over the years, so I thought we could all take a little time to day to celebrate her and this birthday milestone with an Opal retrospective!
Though I never shared these first two pictures on the blog, the LaBaths were the first IBKs Opal met. I love how the tiny kittens and tiny human are equally curious.
And their little conversation was the cutest.
Throughout her whole life, she's been surrounded by lots of critters, so she learned at a very early age "how to be gentle". It shows in her hands -- such tenderness.
You've grown and changed so much over the years, Opal, but what has remained is your love for the little ones.
We hope your birthday is as special as you are!
Happy birthday, dear Opal!
