especially when they happen on your birthday!
My beautiful, tender-hearted, animal-loving Cactus “celebrated” his 13th birthday today. A huge milestone!
No longer a tween, now a teen.
His welcome gift…
his life lesson…
His precious (and first ‘very own pet’) Yoshi was dead in her cage this morning.
I know we all need to learn these hard and bitter life lessons, but on your birthday?!?!
My darling, sweet Cactus, I know your entrance into “teenager” status today was not met with a wonderful start, but I promise you, it is not always going to be “unfun” stuff the whole time.
