My youngest babies are all grown up meow!! 😭😭 Happy First Birthday, Gumby and Wish!! 🐱🐶
These two little #fosterfails
crawled into my heart the moment they were born/brought to me. From their humble beginnings as squirmy bottle baby and messy scamperous runt, they've transformed into two amazing yearlings with adorable personalities. (Swipe to see what a difference a year makes!) Gumby had the zoomies nonstop as a baby and ran into every wall and door with pride. She's calmed down a bit since then and is now our friendliest and most patient cat with other animals, especially dogs. Big/small/newcomer, it makes no difference to her - they are all automatically instant friends. But her best friend in the whole wide world is her little sister, Wish.
Wish was our first bottle baby puppy, who came into the shelter all alone as an hours-old owner surrender on this day, exactly one year ago. Her back legs were bowed and we weren't sure if she would be able to walk normally as an adult. But she thrived, and now can walk miles without tiring, and only bears a slight residual curve in her back legs.
Even though Gumby is a few weeks older, we figured these two bffs wouldn't mind sharing their special day; they even shared their birthday treats! (We now know that Wish likes tuna and Gumby LOVES frosting.) We're so lucky these sisters from different misters chose us as their furever family and can't wait to see them take on the next year together. ❤🎂🍰🍼🍪🎈🎉🐈🐕 #happybirthday #happybarkday #wishwednesday #wish #gumby #sisters #baldwinparkshelter #catsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #catoftheday #dogoftheday #instadog #sendadogphoto #dogstagram #blackcat #blackcatappreciation #chimix #chimixofinstagram #chihuahuasofinstagram #adoptdontshop #foster #spayandneuter #shelterdog #sheltercat #bffs #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #love
