Four years ago today mom & dad adopted me from the SPCA. They had been in to see me earlier that week and fill out all the paper work and were anxiously awaiting to be told when they could come pick me up. Finally they got the call that I was all ready so they drove out to get me right away.
They had to sit in the waiting room for the tech to bring me out. After what seemed to be an eternity, he came out with little me. He asked them if they had a name for me and they said "Julius". He laughed and seemed to think that was a very fitting name for me already. Then he told them that I was driving everyone nuts in the back room cause I was meowing and meowing. Even as a tiny kitten I had a big mouth. MOL!!
When I came home, I was very loving toward mom. Purrhaps I could sense that she needed some extra love. She had lost her beloved Zoey earlier that year and was felt like a big hole was in her heart. So I did my best to plug up that whole with my tiny orange fluff!! Anyway, that 1st night, they thought I should sleep in the kitty carrier since I was so tiny. Well, I told them what I thought of that! Let's just say they didn't get much sleep that night & that was the last night I was stuck in the carrier!!! Hee hee!
Thank you all for helping me celebrate my gotcha day!! Mom & I can't believe its been 4 years already.
Have a great weekend!!
That is a great story! Thank you for telling us about your gotcha day! I'm glad you were gotten and it sounds like you have been able to help heal your mom's heart after losing Zoey.
What a great story Julius! I'm so happy that your mommy and daddy found you and that you have a fantastic forever home. Sister knows just how you feel about being contained on the first night. The first night home for her, she slept under the blankets with mommy. It was loves at first sight for them! (I'm not brave, I hid under the bed!)
That's a great story my friend, I hope you had a great gotcha day.
