Happy Birthday, Dear Wylla!

DSC_3888

 Though it's been almost 3 years since Wylla got better and started living her life like a normal cat, not a day passes that I don't think about how grateful I am that she is healthy and here.  Our girl turns a whopping five years old today.  FIVE! A wonderful milestone -- she's had more healthy years than not.

It's funny to think back to when we first met our Wee Wylla -- that adorable odity, the stoutest of all the Stouts,  the cutest thing ever.

When we first saw this little face we had no idea what was to come -- we did not know then that she would soon be ours.

And thank goodness she did join our family -- I can't imagine our world without Wylla in it.


She brings levity to each day with her bright trills and well-timed dramatic flops.  She offers great companionship and provides comfort and good cuddles. She's such a dear friend to Bean and spares her from boredom.

Our life is better with the sweet presence that is Wylla.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Wylla Francis Stout!   We're so happy to have this day to celebrate!  We wish you many happy, heathy years to come!





Here she is:
One month, one year, two years, three years, four years, and today!

  6. I remember that first post about her, too. She was SO ridiculous. It was meant to be that she stayed with you, after all of the bonding you did through her illness.

    I'm so glad she is a healthy, happy five-year-old girl. Happy Birthday, sweet Wylla!

  7. That first picture of Wee Wylla always makes me chuckle. She looked so serious for such a little floofy girl. Happy birthday not-so-Wee Wylla!

  8. Cutest kitten ever has grown up to be most beautiful cat ever (other than Charlene, of course!). Watching her blossom from such a wee, weak thing to the healthy cat she is today has been wonderful. Happy 5th!

  12. I have clicked back to that 1st baby picture so many times over the past 5 years. One of the most precious kitty faces (and bodies) I have ever seen and I've been around the kitty block a few times. Happy Birthday, Wylla, and many more.

  31. Behold, the evolution of the floofiness that is Wylla! I've been with the blog since before Wylla, so I've had the pleasure of watching her grow from a wee little bit of fluff to the fabulous floofster she is now. Happy Birthday, Miz Wylla!

  32. Belated Hippo Birdie Two Ewe! The Maine Coons and I spent your birthday cuddled on the couch while 12.5" of snow fell. You were, by far, one of the cutest kittens to cross this blog. ( I have a soft spot for Miss Perla and Geraldine). Hope you got many hours in front of the heating grate and lots of goodies.

  33. Happy Birthday dear Wylla! And to Audrey too! I must admit, Ms. Wylla, when I saw your first portrait I didn't quite know what was all... happening. But you've grown nicely into your floof and I commend you! Best wishes for your fifth!

  43. "She offers great companionship and provides comfort and good cuddles." I cannot imagine my life without a cat. Its been so many years my cat always beside me when i am doing my work. I work from home by the way. Sometimes my cat already knew i got a busy day and never ask me to cuddle her. Just sit quietly on my lap.No matter a day or a late night, if i have tons of job to finish, my cat always beside me. By the way, Happy Birthday Wylla!
