Hello everyone, it’s me Simon and I’m here with my sister Seal. Today is our Gotcha Day, yes, it really is and we’re going celebrate by just being us, we’re good at it.  Most of you know our story, but for those of you who are new we’ll give you a brief overview.  We hope that is okay with you.

We were both wee feral kittens and we both showed up outside just days apart.  We were both alone and no Mama in sight.  Since we were two kittens alone we bonded pretty quickly and were both together, always together.  The man dude who is now our Dad was doing kitty trapping out back and had eight traps set.  Seal was the first one in a trap, dang.  The other six traps had takers over the next couple of hours.  It was getting dark and I really missed Seal so I (Simon), decided to go in the last trap.

We ended up going somewhere strange, going to sleep, and then we woke up we were without some of our parts.  We were headed back here to be released in the back yard but the humans, now known as Mom and Dad, decided that we needed to be safe and were going to live inside.

Seal was pretty scared but was relatively calm.  Me, Simon?  I immediately totally trashed the big bathroom trying to get out.  There was stuff everywhere.  So, our new Dad decided we had to live in the big bedroom and big bathroom for a while.  It was almost a full year until I calmed down and then Seal and I were able to come out in the house with everyone else.

We’re both glad we’re not living outside anymore and we’re so happy to be able to celebrate a Gotcha Day.  Thanks to all of you for coming by to celebrate with us!

    I remember those times, Simon and Seal. We were all so excited here in the Blogosphere to see you and get to know you. I love reading your story again. Any and all of your stories there in the family are always a joy to read.

It was supposed to thunderstorm and Mom didn’t want me to be scared because I’m NOT afraid of storms (she doesn’t want me to become afraid) so she canceled and there was no rain! MOL!

    What an exciting and Happy Day! We are celebrating here that you left the feral life to enjoy the inside with Brian! (We are late, we got sidetracked into playing with Photoshop).

  12. The Creative Cat

    Yay, that’s a happy ending to an outdoor life, and the beginning of a new one. Some kitties take a while to get with it. That’s okay. I’d much rather read about you two chasing light fairies for fun than mice for dinner.

  13. Indulgedfurries

    Simon and Seal, you have a wonderful Gotcha story. You’ve come a long way since then and now if you trash the bathroom, I bet it’s because you’re having too much fun!
