Guess who? See I told you on Saturday that you would see me again really soon. Today is my Gotcha Day and believe me, I’m very thankful that a Gotcha happened when I needed it the most.
You see, back in 2011 I was a super happy girl living life with my original human Mom. They, all of a sudden, she wasn’t moving. She didn’t move for a couple of days. Then some strangers came in the house and they told me she had died. It was such a sad time for me. I ended up with a nice lady, but she couldn’t keep me because her husband got really sick and had to be in the hospital for a long, long time.
I ended up in a place called a shelter, but I hated it. I couldn’t stand being locked in a cage all day. I got super stressed and got one UTI after another. Nobody, and I mean nobody, wanted an older kitty. Then the rescue people contacted Brian to see if he could find me a home somewhere, anywhere. The stress of the shelter was about to do me in.
Brian tried and tried and, from what I hear, many of Brian’s friends jumped in to help find me a home. It just wasn’t there no matter how hard everyone tried. Brian tells me that the Dad grew very fond of me just from seeing my sweet face day after day on the blog. Then, all of a sudden I was back in a carrier headed somewhere else again. It turns out that somewhere else was here, my new forever home. I had been officially adopted by Brian and his family. A Gotcha Day is just the best.
When I got here I had my own private bedroom so I could get used to things without being in a cage. After a while I was introduced, slowly, to the others. Well, it turns out I don’t like other cats and I had probably never even seen another cat in the six years with my original Mom. That was a bit of an unusual problem. But the new Dad told me I was home and not to worry. That’s how I ended up with my own suite upstairs. The stairs are screened and the landing is gated to keep me and the others safe.
If you would like to read the original post about me you can find it HERE. I am so very thankful that I got a second chance and that I have a forever home that is forever. For my Gotcha Day please tell me what you are thankful for and then join us in our Blog Hop.
