My Gotcha Day

      86 Comments on My Gotcha Day


Today is my Gotcha Day! Here is a picture from me on my first Christmas in my forever home. Most of you know all about my Gotcha Day story so I’m not going to repeat it again, but I did get my forever home 3 days before Christmas. That was a very special year for me and lots has changed since then. I lost a brother, gained 4 sisters and have made tons of friends around the world. We’re just going to have a quiet celebration while we’re waiting for Santa to arrive. So to all of you who have been Gotcha’d, congratulations! And to all of those still waiting for that special Gotcha moment, we’re doing everything we can to help you out. Much love to all of you!!!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    A very Happy Gotcha day Brian. You sure found yourself a great home, you lucky kitty. Good job. Hope you have a great day and have many more. We just read the update on Moosie and that is such wonderful news. I cannot believe how excited I am. The best news is that Moosie doesn't have to make another adjustment. What a great Christmas present for her. Have a great day.

    Happy Gotcha day Brian! You have one of the best Gotcha stories I have ever heard. You are right, you have lived through a lot of changes, but you didn't mention one… You became a hero…. and were able to, or at least tried to help others less fortunate. Not many folks (2 or 4 legged) can say that! I am so glad all your Moosie hard work paid off! XOXO
