Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
That’s right, today is my Gotcha Day! On this day in 2008 I came to my new home for the very first time. I was as happy as could be and loved my new Brother Ivan and my new family.

For those of you who are new to our blog, I was adopted once before but was abused in that home.  I am so thankful that the nice ladies at Kitten Action Team do follow-up home visits.  They noticed right away that I wasn’t the same Brian they knew and that I was scared, not happy.  They, on the spot, took me away from that place and took me back to the adoption center.

My human Mom was sad that I was not at the adoption center because she wanted to adopt me.  But she was happy when I was back and immediately started to convince my human Dad that I would be the purrfect brother for Ivan.  She did, I was adopted and was finally home, really home, just in time for Christmas.

I am a happy boy and I knew immediately I was exactly where I was supposed to be and that is still the case.  That is one of the main reasons I try to help others find their Gotcha Day too, everyone deserves it.  Thanks to all of you for being my friends for so long.

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

    BRIAN! Concatulations on your Gotcha Day! I never knew this about you, my friend. Some people just don’t deserve kittehs … especially ones like us, right? You’re with your RIGHT family and that’s all that matters! Thank goodness those nice ladies checked on you! I shudder to think what would’ve happened had they not done so. And we would never have met!

    Purrz & have a great day!

    Happy GOTCHA Day Brian…..some things were just plain meant to be like you finding your forever home. It’s just a shame someone who had no business having a pet AT ALL got you first. I’m glad someone came to check on you and took you back so your Mom could get you!!! Life is good………….there’s no greater gift than love.

    Hugs, Sammy
