Reflections on a Gotcha Day

Oh my catness, kitties, you guys are all too generous! Look at all these presents me and sisfur got for our Gotcha Day! I don't even know what to say! We're going to try to thank you all individually but there are a lot... so it might take a little while!

That's right kitties, 5 years ago mommy and daddy walked into Happy Tails pet sanctuary in Sacramento and walked out with one very happy River Cat and Simone! I was super quiet the whole ride home cause I was a little nervous about thing. I mean, sure, I convinced daddy to take me home by falling asleep in his lap in the big kitty room, but still, this was a whole lot of different! When I finally did open my mouth and say something... mommy and daddy melted! I have the sweetest little baby meow in the world and it comes out of great big old me hehehe!

After a few days I really warmed up to my new family, it took a little while cause I'm a hesitant guy (Not with sister, I loved sister immediately, she's awesome) but since I have it's been nothing but perfection since then. I love my home, I love my family, I love my life. I'm so happy they adopted me, adult River with FIV, they didn't care, they love me as I am. Life doesn't get any better than this and I hope some day all the kitties of the world can know this feeling, cause it's the best, am I right or am I right?
