This time last year I never thought Ali-cat would make through another year. She was very ill, and was diagnosed with kidney disease. I thought Ali was a goner for sure.  Again, she has proved me wrong. Today, April 23rd, we celebrate the birth of my munchkin 18 years ago! I am so lucky to still have her around. When I first got her I had no idea I was committing myself to at least 18 years, I can’t imagine my life without her. It's hard to think of a time in my life when I didn't have her by my side. She has been my constant companion from NY to LA. She has lived in 7 homes, 3 states, and lived through many interesting adventures. Here is an ode to her through the years!

Happy Birthday Ali! Can't wait for the next 18 years!!!
