That’s right, today is my Gotcha Day, my 12th Gotcha Day.  That’s sure hard to believe but I’m still so very happy to be here.  I sure had a rough start in life and in 2009 I wasn’t even sure I was going to make it.  Seriously, I was dumped in a horrible part of town.

Not only was I dumped, I had my front claws removed so I had no way to defend myself and hunting wasn’t easy, I was reduced to eating whatever bugs I could catch.  On top of that, it rained as hard as it could rain, for days on end.

I’m not going to recap all of the details of my Gotcha Story, but if you’re new to our blog you really should read about my journey HERE

You’ll see just how lucky I was and why I’m so thankful that so many helped me find my forever home.  I love you all and am so thankful to have so many friends from all over the world. Thank you for stopping by and sharing this special day with me.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Dolly, Happy Gotchaversary!
    We know that your humans are so very happy that you came to live with them, so they could pamper you like you’ve always deserved to be.
    Some of us are working very hard to make what was done to your paws an illegal action, plus educating folks that it’s not a nice thing to do.
    Hugs and purrs, sweetheart!

    Charlee: “Happy Gotcha Day, Dolly! Many happy returns!”
    Chaplin: “We sure are glad you’re not out there on the street in the rain anymore, having to eat bugs!”
    Charlee: “Yes, now when you eat bugs, it should only be because they got into your house and they’re delicious snacks ― not for actual nutrition!”
