Most of you know by now that I was rescued as a wee one from a Christmas tree farm. Then I lived at PetSmart under the care of Kitten Action Team for eight whole months. I didn’t think I was every going to ever get my forever home. Oh, I was adopted once, but they treated me mean and the ladies at Kitten Action Team came and took me back.
I recently told you that when I was first adopted, at my new and permanent forever home, I had a wonderful brother named Ivan. He welcomed me in the first minutes of my arrival and no other break-in period was needed. 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 Thanksgiving, and I miss him each and every day. We then adopted sisters Gracie and Zoe, and not too long ago we adopted sister Dolly, and then sister Precious joined our family. Then we adopted the wonderful Sister Kit when our Grandma left for Heaven. I have the most wonderful family ever!!!
Gotcha Days are just the best and we will keep working to help more kitties and doggies have them too. We’re going to have a little private celebration tonight for my Gotcha Day, but most importantly, I am still so very happy that this one was it!
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
p.s. I am doing a little better. We might have gotten out in front of it and whapped it this time.
Happy Got ha day dear friend xxx Merry Christmas to all the family
A big happy gotcha day to you, Brian! You had quite a journey before you arrived at your real home!
Oh happy Gotcha Day Brian!!! Enjoy your day 🙂 How many gotcha years old are you anyways? You don’t look a day over 2 😉
Happy Gotcha day Brian. We continue to send healing vibes and POTP.
Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today.
Best wishes Molly
SUPER HAPPY GOTCHA DAY Brian……it’s a wonderful day to celebrate. So many of us have been lucky in finding a perfect forever home and I know we all wish EVERYONE could know the joy and security and love that we’ve found with our families. I hope you have a super special day – I know your family loves you as much as you love them and I also am happy to hear you think you whapped “the bad bug” early on this time so the UTI doesn’t get you again!!! WOO HOO!!
Holiday and Gotcha Hugs, Sammy
Happy Gotcha Day, Brian! We hope you have a wonderful day, and that your bout of cystitis was caught early. Any time that Derry makes a small pee clump, our human goes into panic mode and starts syringing in the UTI-Free (dissolved in a few drops of water). Seems to do the trick for him, but we know every cat is different!
Purrs to Zoe too, we read the update on her eye. And of course continued purrs to Gracie…to you all.
Happy Gotcha Day, Brian. You picked a great time of year and a wonderful family. You know, when the homesteaded kitties are so wonderful, it encourages the peeps to adopt more cats. You deserve a crown!
A very happy Gotcha day to you Brian. We are so glad you found that wonderful family of yours. That was a great day for you, so have a wonderful day.
Happy Gotcha Day Brian! It makes us sad to think someone was mean to you but we’re so happy you have a wonderful, loving home now.
The Florida Furkids
Happy Gotcha Day, Brian. Furry hugs.
Brian, this was the home you were always meant to have. Your Dad Terry is so meowvolous and takes such good care of all of you. You know we have mirror households…you and all your sisfurs and Mauricio and all of his. Just wish our clan would get along as well as all of you. HAPPY GOTCHA DAY! We hope you get lots of delicious noms and toys. MEOWY CATMESS! MOL, HO, HO, HO! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Happy Gotcha Day, Brian! You have such a wonderful home and family. I really hope you keep well. Thank you for all the work you do to help homeless animals!
Happy Gotcha Day, Brian! We purr that you have a great day…and that the pee flows freely. 🙂 We ♥ you!!
Happy Gotcha Day, Brian! Couldn’t think of a better home for you!
Happy gotcha day at your bay, found the perfect one
Happy Happy Gotcha Day Brian! You couldn’t have found a better forever home!
Do you know what? I didn’t know ANY of that stuff! So neat to hear about it now.
You have a lot of Christmas connections, huh? Your gotcha day is just a few days before Christmas. You were originally rescued from a Christmas tree farm. Hmmm… how close are you to the big guy in red, himself? Do you happen to know his private line?
HAPPY GOTCHA DAY BRIAN!
I’m just gettin’ around to lettin’ cats know about their awards now. You beat me to it! So do hope you like yours.
Happy Gotcha Day Brian, we are so happy that all of your sisters are there to share it with you.
Scylla: I am going to come over and spend the day with you. I’ll bring some fresh nip for the family to enjoy.
Love all of us

Happy Gotcha Day, Brian. Glad you are feeling better so you can celebrate.
Happy Got-Cha day my dear furend.
It always warms my heart to hear about how another poor lost kitty found their forever home. I was lucky enough to have a wise old fellow to help me learn how to act with Dad and live in a real home. With his help I went from Hissy to cuddle in a few days.
Bless my Angel Inky
Purrs and Merry Christmouse to you and yours Brian

Happy Gotcha Day to you, Brian.
I didn’t know that story about your first adoption going bad. That just goes to show how important it is to follow-up on an adoptive home. Not everybody is cut out to be a cat parent. I’m glad that you finally found the perfect home!
Happy Gotcha Day Brian and congratulations for finding such a good home!

OMC!!! Brian, I never ever knew your Gotcha story…it is pawsome for sure…as all all the kitty rescues in your home and the ones your humans make pawsible all over the world. I am the most fortunate adult rescue shelter cat ever to have been able to make your acquaintance. Happy Holidays to you and yours Brian
Happy Gotcha day my furriend. You sure were gotted by pawsome people. Look at the great care you’ve all gotten while everyone’s been sick. So glad you’re all doing better. *hugs*
Happy Gotcha Day honey! I’m sending healing purrz that you’ll be all better soon.
We do not “remember” yer esperiences cuz we are “newish”, but TBT does. He reminded us of your tale while we sat on and around his lap tonight. We have read it, of course. But we are so impressed again. We are SO glad you were one of the lucky kitties. And let us say that “some kitties” are best positioned in life to discuss such things. You are one of those kitties… You do it so well. MARLEY here: Brian, Ayla and Iza were originally destined to be Queens for further breeding. But they were both “failures” in that… Read more »
Oh Brian, Gotcha stories make us leaky! We are so happy your family is all together and warm and well-fed and well-cared-for (to say the least!!!) and safe. We hope you all have the happiest Christmas ever! XOXOXO
