We weren't planning to KEEP Hazel-- we already had three cats, so we were going to just foster her. But she started purring when we brought her in, and didn't stop for several days. How can you say no to a sweetie like that?
And so, what would have just been the day of her rescue turned into the date she got a permanent (purr-manent!) home.
She has grown to be pretty big at about 12 pounds, though she's still tiny compared to the boys. And even though she's the youngest cat, she has the oldest, biggest voice, and lots to say.
We love you, Hazel!!
And also Happy Birthday to me.
