A Not So Wordless Wednesday 13th Gotcha Day with Brian

wordless wednesday gotcha day brian 12222021

It’s my 13th Gotcha Day!  Can you believe it, 13 years already, time sure flies by so quickly.  I was born on a Christmas Tree Fram in 2008 and I was adopted just three days before Christmas.  No wonder I love the Christmas holiday so much!   Mom and Dad got me my own Christmas Tree Farm sign.  Our dear friend Sandy rescued me and took care of me until I came home.  She owned Kitten Action Team but has since retired.  Thanks Sandy!

A lot sure has changed over those 13 years.  My loved and special Brother Ivan ran to the Rainbow Bridge just eleven months after I was adopted, I miss him so much.  At one point there was nine of us inside, but sadly Sascha, Gracie, Zoe, Precious and Kit now are Angels too.  

One thing hasn’t changed, I still have the best blogging pals ever.  Talk about an extended family, I love each and every one of you and I still do a happy dance when new followers join us.  Thanks for coming by today to help me celebrate, I appreciate it!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Happy Gotcha Day Brian…..Christmas is a SUPER SPECIAL time of the year for you – it’s a beautiful holiday but also you were ALMOST a Christmas baby and actually born at a Christmas Tree Farm! You lucky boy. We think of you as our brother – we cats are one big family after all. Have a wonderful day and of course a WONDERFUL Christmas!!!

Happy Gotcha Day Brian! Be happy and feel happy in the family.
Life is how it is. It’s a a gift, precious… I feel that there are some moments that we do not understand, but we have to, because they are not crossing our line with no reason!
I hope this day is beautiful!
And I wish you Merry Christmas! Be well and full of joy!
