Happy Gotcha Day Sister Dolly!  Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

Today we want to say a special Happy Gotcha Day to Sister Dolly.  It is really hard to believe that it has been five years already.  We are all so happy to have her as a part of our family and she is a very, very special lady.

Sister Dolly had an awfully rough go of it of a while, but thanks to the efforts of many she was able to find her way to where she was meant to be, in her forever home.  I am not going to repeat all of Dolly’s story, but for those of you who are new it would be great if you could go read this post about her.

Hijack Tuesday – The Social Media Rescue

The whole thing for us started with a post by the incredible Robin Olsen from Covered in Cat Hair.  Robin had done a post about a poor kitty in South Carolina.  After several retweets on twitter our Dad saw a tweet from a rescue group far away from CT and SC. Dad, in an effort to help, asked where in South Carolina.  When the rescue group responded with Greenville, SC, which is where we live, and he saw the photo, he just knew where she was going to live.  Our Dad finally got to meet Robin at the Purina Better with Pets Summit in NYC.

Here are the links to two posts that Robin did about Sister Dolly:

Not on My Watch: Dilute Cali Caught in the Middle

Not on My Watch: More about the Dilute Kitty

We all often see posts about cats and dogs needing help to find their forever homes.  Sister Dolly can tell you first paw that social media sharing does work.  You just never know when the post, the tweet, the pin, the Facebook post, the Instagram pic, will land in front of the right person.  When that happens, so does the magic.

So, once again thanks to everyone who helped save this beautiful kitty and for getting her home where she belongs.  Happy Gotcha Day Sister Dolly!!!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Oh precious Dolly……we have been reading your blog for a while, but we had no idea that you had such a rough time! Your story made the mom very sad. How could *anyone* want to dump you? But the Mom (and us) are sooo happy that you have the forever home you do now. You could not have found a more wonderful place to live! We wish you a very Happy Gotcha Day and we hope for so many more for you!

    Purrs and love,

    Happy gotcha day, Dolly! Wow, you were famous even before you came to live with Brian and his sisters. I didn’t know your story before (but my human did – she met Robin the year before at the Cat Writers Conference). I wish all kitties in desperate situations like the one you were in had as much help as you did!

    Happy 5th Gotcha Day Dolly. Your story almost made my eyes leaky, but it got better real fast because of your guardian angel Jenna and all the other wonderful people who helped you find your new forever home with Brian & his family. You are a very lucky kitty, and they are also lucky to have such a sweet girl.
