It’s My Gotcha Day


Sascha and Dante's Christmas

The Tenth Day of Christmas: Please follow along Dante and Sascha on their 12 Days of Christmas, you will be glad you did.  The really big surprise comes Christmas Day, you don’t want to miss it…shhhhh, don’t tell Sascha!

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

I know you were expecting to see Sister Saturday, but they insisted that I do this Saturday since it is my Gotcha Day.  This was one of my first pictures when I was adopted just 3 days before Christmas.  Can you tell I was happy or what?  After all, when I was rescued from a Christmas tree farm, I lived at PetSmart under the care of Kitten Action Team for eight whole months.  I didn’t think I was every going to get my forever home.  I was adopted once, but they treated me mean and the ladies at Kitten Action Team came and took me back.

Some of you new readers may not know, but when I was first adopted at my new and permanent forever home, I had a wonderful brother named Ivan.  He was such a special Brother and he welcomed me in the first minutes of my arrival with no other break-in period at all.  My brother Ivan had just lost his brother Moses and it was important that we hit it off…and boy did we ever!  We then adopted Sister Sascha.  Then my brother Ivan went across the Rainbow Bridge unexpectedly just days before that next Thanksgiving, and I miss him each and every day.  We then adopted sisters Gracie and Zoe together, then we adopted sister Dolly, and most the most recent addition was when Sister Precious joined our family.

Love You Too Scylla

Look at the beautiful card my sweet Scylla sent me.

Six years, wow!  We’re going to have a little private celebration tonight for my Sixth  Gotcha Day Anniversary, but most importantly, I am still so very happy that this one was it!  Hey, remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
