and then she was 10

How did that happen?  Our Miss Callie Mae is ten.  It seems like yesterday when she came to live with us.  She was living at Happy Tails and she chose us!  On the ride home, she never cried, she came into the house, took a stroll, and declared it was an acceptable place for her to live.  Neither of us has ever looked back.  Each day she wakes up happy and has brought joy into our lives each and every day.

She knows what she likes and what she does not like.  She likes an ice cube in her water dish.

Some say she is persistent and determined, others say she is stubborn.

She has learned the world's problems are easier solved after a good nap.

She is fastidious and insists on having her hair brushed every day.  (AppleJack is her stylist).

She keeps a watchful eye for the postman because she knows the postman delivers goodies from the recent Nashville Needlework Market which makes her adopted Mother very happy.

Happy Birthday Miss Callie Mae--your family loves you very much!

Have you seen Stacy Nash's Animal Crackers cats Theodore and Clementine?  You bet your boots they are in my shopping cart.  Watch out Mr Postman, Miss Callie Mae is watching.
