Thanks Catster kitties for your nice pawmails and rosettes; comments and photos you made me for the anniversary of my Gotcha Day today!
There is a pretty Maine Coon kitty whose Gotcha Day is today too - named Lady and her day is Aug. 4, 2000. She is 11 years old and so glamourous! (Catster #755971). Later today I'll go and visit with her page again.
Just today, before we realized today was my Gotcha Day (such a busy Dad I have!) my Dad took a film to be developed from the camera he used to use before he got his digital camera. On this film is a pic of me from 2009 and if it's a nice one he will put it on my Catster page. He's going to pick up the film in a few minutes.
My Urn and ashes have been at home for awhile now. Dad said when he got my Urn, "Serena, you are coming back home now, forever". He set me on the bookcase beside the Urns of Felix and Samantha. My plant that the Vet sent is still growing (and so is Felix's and Samantha's too!).
My Dad still thinks about me, and sees me in his mind, every day and it still makes him awfully sad sometimes. He wonders a lot that maybe I could have lived longer. He will now never know the answer. He does know I no longer feel any discomfort from the tumor which he often feared would burst one day. Right now at the Rainbow Bridge, I'm normal looking and cute and sweet, and silly sometimes, like he remembered I used to be.
I hope my Dad can find the pics he took of me on my Gotcha Day in 1994. I was such a baby kitty that day he got me!
Thanks to all of you again!

Serena he will always have those sad days and it's usually on special days like this. But at the same time our parents will never forget the good times, like you being silly and sweet. Nothing can take those wonderful memories from them. And we're all here for the both of you anytime you need us. Just because it's been a little while, doesn't mean it hurts any less. It hasn't been that long sweetie. So concats on your wonderful Gotcha day! Your daddy sure is a loving person and you were so lucky to have him as your pawent.
Happy that you were Gotcha'd by the best possible daddy for you, and sad that you had to go to the RB...but now you are watching over all that goes on, and we are sure that you send little signs of yourself, now & then.
Oooh, Serena's Daddy, don't be sad. If you hadn't been gotcha'd, you two wouldn't have had the wonderful love you had for each other for 17 whole years. That's a lot of years! I know, why can't the time we have together be longer!
You're Daddy is such a loving, giving man. He gave you a wonderful life and you gave him your love and all the wonderful memories. There will be days when he misses you terribly, but to have missed out on your love--now that would have been something even more terrible!
Happy Gotcha Day, sweet Serena.
Gentle huggies and whisker kissea..
