Happy 28th Birthday to My Rags!
Well, if you have been on this site for awhile, you know who Rags is.
For those who do not know him, he was my childhood Ragdoll cat. Today is his birthday.
I will never forget his birthday and will never not honor it on the site because he is the reason this site exists.
Rags was born on 8/8. 8 is my favorite number. It is also the reason I do a lot with 8s on the site. For example, every blog post is published at 8:08am Kansas City time every day. Rags was born in California, so perhaps I should have it publish on Pacific Time – but I don’t because his life was spent in Kansas City.
Rags’ face is the one in our profile photo on Facebook, Instagram and more. He was one of the greatest loves of my life – and I am so thankful he was in it for the 19.5 years that he was – as my love for him helped to create this website, which has become my livelihood and one of my great joys.
Here’s one of my favorite videos of him – he was about 6 months from death here – but at the time, I didn’t know it, of course. I loved our daily outside ventures and so did he.
Thank you all for being here to help celebrate my joy – my Rags – and all beautiful kitties!
