Today is my first Gotcha Day here, isn’t that something? In certain ways it seems like I just got here, and then in other ways it seems like I’ve been here forever. It does seem like a long time ago when my original human Mom up and died on me. Then I had to spend several months living in a small cage at a place they called a rescue. Brian tried his best to find me a home and many of you tried to help me too. But, it seems that nobody really wanted a six year old girl like me. Well, Brian did and that is when he decided that I should just come here to live. Oh yes, it has been challenging for me, and for the rest of the family too because in my first six years I had never lived with or shared any kind of space with another kitty. I’m just glad I landed here, because patience seems to be in abundance around these parts. I am most certainly thankful for patience.
I love my human Dad and Mom here. They love me too and treat me like I am the most important kitty around. I know there are five others here, but they always make me feel special. I am making progress. I venture out of my bedroom almost every night. I am learning to see the others from a distance and I am learning that they won’t hurt me. I still like the comfort and security of my bedroom and some nights when Dad opens the door for me I choose to not go out. But the nice thing is that it is always my choice. I must admit I am getting more and more curious about the others and I enjoy sitting upstairs looking down and watching them. Really, that’s progress, because early on I would get all upset and stressed just seeing them. Now, watching them is kind of fun. That probably doesn’t sound like a lot of progress to you, but for me it is a major milestone. I know the others don’t think I like them, but that really isn’t the case, they just scare me because I’m not used to them. The blond one they call Sascha keeps coming up asking me to come out and play. I’m still thinking that one over, but she keeps asking. She says she is trying to paw it forward.
I know some of you worry about me, Brian tells me. But not to worry. I am delightfully happy, purr often, eat great and have a blast every evening at playtime with my Dad. I have the most purrfect cat tree and wonderful window views of the backyard which is just full of fun critters. So, my first year is behind me and I am looking forward to seeing what this next year brings. My whiskers tell me that there is progress out there just waiting to happen! Smoochies to all of you!!!
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
Precious! Yes you HAVE made progress, YES you have done good. These things take time, lots and lots of time and you have every right to be so proud of yourself. Your family and your Dad love you very much and we are ALL so very proud of you. Well Done Precious.
You are surrounded by love now,sweet kitteh
Happy Gotcha Day Precious! Yes you are making progress. It must be scary to come and live with lots of cats when you are used to being an only one. It would be good if you could make friends with Sascha because that would give you more confidence to get to know the others. We are very glad you found your loving Forever home with Brian and his family.
Happy Gottcha Day sweetheart. You are so fortunate to have been adopted by Brian and his family because they do have a lot of patience with you. You are a bootiful girl, and you are getting there with socialization.
Awwww Happy first year Gotcha Day lovely and precious Precious!! You are truly making great progress and are in the bestest place ever! Enjoy your special day and family! Take care
Happy gotcha day, my dear. I am so happy you found your perfect forever home. Please send cuddles to your Mummy and Daddy.
Precious, you sure have found the perfect family. Not only does your dad write interesting stories, we can tell there is much love and happiness at your house. Sounds like u found the perfect home. Keep up the good work:)
Happy Gotcha Day Precious!!!! I remember the day you got “got”… I can’t believe it is a year already, and only a year at the same time. You really got lucky in the family department!!!
Happy Gotcha Day, Precious! We know being happy in your room is much better than what you had before. And don’t worry about those other cats…you just take your time and do what you are comfortable doing. We think you got it good now!!
Oh beautiful girl, I am so happy to wish you a happy Gotcha Day. My Admiral who was a Tortie like you darling girl, would have been unhappy too if she had gone from our home here into another with kitties. Even one. Some kitties are just used to being King or Queen and wish no others to share that title. We understad and you have made wonderful progress. Kissies and huggles dear one.
Hi there Precious. I remember the day that you were gotched by that wonderful family that you live with now. You could not have found a nicer home if you had tried. We can’t believe it has been a whole year. We know for sure that you are in a good place. What could be better than to have your own private room with all of that attention and then time out of the room too. A bunch of the cats here would give their right paw to have that. Anyway, a very happy gotcha day to you Precious. Have… Read more »
Aww, Precious, you ARE precious! Happy Gotcha Day! It was fate or luck that you ended up in Brian’s home, where the beans (and other kitties) allow you to just be your Self and don’t push you into something for which you’re not ready. You just take it as slow as you like…and who knows? Maybe next May 11th will find you out and about with the other kitties and being happy playing with them! If so, great, but if not, that’s perfectly okay too!
Happy Gotcha Day sweet kitty! Woot woot! Hope you get to kick up your heels today!!! eerrr… well… kick up your paws I guess. 😉
Have a good one!
Awww… such a sweet and touching post. We are so happy to know you Precious and think that you are doing just great. What a pretty girl you are – Happy Gotcha Day and special meows and purrs to you!
We are so glad your so happy Precious!
Happy Gotcha Day, Precious!!!
Happy Gotcha Day Precious! We’re glad you’re making progress!! You’ve found a wonderful forever home!!

We thinks you have made terrific progress Precious. Happiest of Gotcha Day’s to you. We thinks you will make even more progress in the days to come. When Arty first came to live here she spent all her time under the chair in the Family Room. Just look at her now.
Happy Gotcha Day Precious – no-one will rush you to emerge from your private room but try and sit with Sascha once in a while and she will help you to gradually join in the fun with your other sisfurs and of course Brother Brian and Mom and Dad.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Happy Gotcha Day, Precious!!! You just take all the time you need to get used to the others! It will happen. One day, before you know it, you will be out and chasing and playing with Sascha and the others. We think you are just beautiful and so happy you found your forever home.
Happy Gotcha Day Precious!!! We are so very glad you are able to work this out in your own time…..be brave, your brother and sisters are great!!
Happy Gotcha Day, Precious! What wonderful progress you are making and continue to make! We bet by your next Gotcha Day, you’ll be downstairs running and chasing with everyone!
Happy 1st Gotcha Day, Precious! Your parents knew what a valuable kitty you were, and that’s why they named you Precious. I think you’ve made some wonderful progress! They always say slow and steady wins (although this is no race). You do look very content in this picture today. You have parents who obviously understand you, and furblings who are just waiting for you to be ready to come and interact with them. Until that day, you have everything you could need or want. I wish you some special treats and extra loving today, on this your first anniversary at… Read more »

Happy Gotcha Day Precious! You’ve been welcomed into a very loving family, and now you just have to learn to let them love you. I bet by next year you’ll be right at home playing with everyone.
I can take lots of time for a kitty to adjust to a new home. You are doing fine precious. Some kitties take longer than others. Happy Gotcha Day sweetie!

Happy gotcha day, Precious! I don’t worry about you at all because I know you are part of an awesome family with wonderful, patient humans who do so much good in the kitty community! I know you are on your own time schedule, and to me it sounds like you are doing just fine.
Happy Gotcha Day! Take your time. Autumn never got to come out of her room although the peeps would leave the door open when they were home. Well, once she came out and hid behind the coat tree when Nicky was sleeping. Mostly he’d go in her room and try to attack her.
Happy Gotcha Day sweet Precious!!! We think you are the luckiest kitty ever to have landed in such a caring home 🙂
Hi Sister Precious!

Happy Gotcha Day Precious
Happy Gotcha Day Precious! We understand how hard it is to be with other kitties, especially when one is a little older. The vet said that I was 8 or 9 when my woman rescued us, and we were clearly not used to other cats. We don’t have a nice separate room like you have, so she has promised that we will be the one and only cat here. Sometimes we wonder what it would be like to have kitty friends; we are glad that you have a loving furrever home that lets you choose. Take as much time as… Read more »
