Thanks to everycat who sent us all the mistletoes this past weekend. A whole lot of kissing has been going on! We hope you had a very merry Christmas and are still enjoying the holiday season.

Thanks Zeeke & family, Tate, and Tyson for reminding me early this morning that it was my Gotcha Day! I guess you can say I was an after-Christmas special!

Mom remembers the day she saw me at the adoption fair and then called Dad to tell him she was bringing me home. She brought a carrier with her so she must've been on a mission! I was already named Riley by my rescuer and kept that name.

While in the car on the way home, I stuck my paw through the carrier door and kept swatting at Mom to try to get her to tell me where we were going. When we got home, I acted like I had been here for years.

Anyway, I guess I need to show you what was in the big box that I wrote about in my last diary. It's a short, double-tunnel cat tree. But, it gets even more exciting because after that, Mom could not pass up the sales she came across at local pet stores, so we got two more tall cat trees!

Thanks to everycat for your friendship. My whole family is looking forward to another year of fun with you!

Love, Riley

Thank you Da Tabbies, Hazel Lucy, Milo, and Simon!

Da Tabbies, I will have to send mom to the store for salmon but for now it'll have to be tuna!

Hazel Lucy, yes, I was meant to be in this family, that's for sure!

Milo, we've been working on getting rid of more human furniture so we can have more cat furniture. We'll definitely be making some good memories in the new year.

Simon & Ruben, yeah, it's been lots of fun to go from tree to tree.

Love, Riley
