A Gotcha Day Friday with Sister Dolly

dolly gotcha day 2017 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!
Hello everyone, today is my Gotcha Day, do you want to help me celebrate?  I thought you would!  Since we have quite a few new readers, let me take a minute to have a little flashback on how I was gotcha’d.

For those who are new to our blog, please realize the power of social media when it comes to helping critters in need.  That was the case with me, I was gotcha’d thanks to the power of social media, specifically Twitter.

It all started when the Dad saw a retweet from someone in a way Southern state of a tweet from someone in a way Northern state.  The tweet was about a kitty needing help in South Carolina.  Dad asked where in South Carolina and the answer was Greenville, which is where we live.

If you’re new, you might want to take a minute to check out the two posts that started it all…

Not on My Watch: Dilute Cali Caught in the Middle

Not on My Watch: More about the Dilute Kitty

I happened to be at our Vet, who was not our Vet at the time, Dr. Anderson from the Cat Clinic. Remember Jenna, our rescue pal? Yes, she is the one who saved me and that’s how we all met Jenna.

So, always share the social media posts when a critter needs help. You just never know who might be reading, and it just takes one read at the right time to save a life.

I am so thankful for everyone who helped me find my way to my forever home. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Happy Gotcha Day, Dolly! I’m so glad you chose a Mom and Dad who love you. It’s a tough thing to say – especially with everything you went through … but it’s probably better that you weren’t stuck with those mean, horrible people for the rest of your life. Instead, you finally got the love of a forever home – which every kitty deserves. I can’t imagine anyone letting you go without a fight – but people suck.

    ps – I don’t know how to put into words how I feel … it’d be easier to just not even try – but I’m a big believer in telling people how you feel just in case it makes some kind of difference. So even though the words will fail me – maybe the sentiment won’t: I’ve been struggling with you losing Sascha. I feel like I could never know enough about her or hear too many stories. I’m not saying this because I want anything – I can’t even imagine your sense of loss – but if you ever feel like sharing, I’d love to listen.

    Dolly you are just so beautiful and so winsome. I LOVE seeing you and even your name suits you. You are a little Dolly! Love you.

    Happy Gotcha Day. You and your mom and dad were winners finding one another XXXXX.

    I just read both of the links. I didn’t know, though I have read almost all of the blogs. That was a story to end all. Dolly…what a lucky girl you are. You hit the jackpot of homes. Love you and all of your family.

  13. Kitties Blue

    Dolly, you are such a beautiful girl. That someone would have you declawed and then abandon you is horrific. We hope “karma” gets them. But you were a lucky girl getting such a wonderful and loving home. Happy Gotcha Day, gorgeous!
