Yes, it’s hard to believe, but today (Thankful Thursday) is my 8th Gotcha Day. Way back in 2008 I was adopted and came home just three days before Christmas. It was quite a big day for me. You see, I was always overlooked and waited nine whole months before I was adopted. I was such a good kitty too, and everyone at Kitten Action Team and PetSmart loved me. Oh, I was adopted once, but they were mean to me, very mean, and the Kitten Action Team lady came and took me away from them. Anyways, when the Dad came and got me, had me in a carrier and wheeled me in a cart out of PetSmart, the staff there was clapping and cheering that “hooray, Brian got adopted!”, it really was quite the moment.
Those of you who have been with me a while know that I came home to the most wonderful Brother ever, Ivan. So if you are new to our blog, Ivan and I were best of friends in under a minute, seriously. Little did we know that Ivan would make a run for the Rainbow Bridge just three days before the next Thanksgiving holiday.
Anyways, that’s one reason why Christmas is special to me. The other reason is that I was born on a Christmas Tree Farm and I love laying under our Christmas Tree, even if it isn’t real. I just want to take a minute and share two photos from my first day home.
I had my very first mousie and boy did I love it. I took it everywhere with me. That darn thing ran off somewhere and hasn’t been seen since.
This one was taken upstairs between the railing overlooking the livingroom. Yes, up in what is now Sister Precious Suite. I was sure pooped from my first busy day home, but you can tell from the smile that I sure was happy to be home.
A lot has changed in eight years, I now have 7 sisters and finally a Brother. But I am still the happy, gentle and welcoming guy I’ve always been. Thanks for stopping my for my Gotcha Day and our Blog Hop. I love you all and appreciate you stopping by on a regular basis.
This is not a sponsored post, but I do want to thank my friends at Purina and Tidy Cat for the very special drawing, we all love it. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
