I beened thinkin bout how lucky I am. So many kitties are cold and skared and hungry. I mighta beened one of em. See, the peeple who owned my mama kitty loved her, but they did not love her babies. There were six of us, and we were all real nice and real cute, but they still did not love us. We got takened from our kitty mama when we were still real tiny, and there were too many of us for one foster home, so we got split up. I went to a foster home with two bruthers, Dozer and Choo-Choo Charlie. Back then my name was Petunia. Our foster mama tooked good cares of us, but we got real skared whenever we went to an adoptathon, so we quit goin.
For bout three weeks there was a lady who kept lookin at my picture on the Pet Paw-See webbysite. She already had a nice kitten, but I looked like her kitty who crossed the bridge. She kept tellin herself one kitten was plenty. Lucky for me, it did not work. The lady could not resist my picture, so she asked bout doptin me. She was real skared that there was a whole line of peeple wantin to dopt me cuz she thought I was so beautiful that everbuddy would want me. It made her happy that she was the first one but sad that there are not enuff homes for all the little kitties that get borned.
My first meetin with my mama did not go so well. I was terrorfied. I kept skratchin and tryin to run away and hide. I was makin kitten stinkies real bad, and I had kitty litter stucked in my tail. I guess what I am tryin to say is I WAS A MESS! I was actin so terbl that for a minute the lady thought maybee she did not wanna dopt me after all. I did not even know how close I came to not gettin my furrever home.
Then the lady got all stubborn. She decidered there was no kitten that she could not love and no kitten that she could not make love her. A coupla weeks later I was ready for doptin, and my new mama brought me home. I was not all that thrilled to find out I comed home to anuther brother. His name is Gunnarr T, and I thought he wanted to eat me!
Gunnie was bigger and faster and rougher than me, and mama had to soopervise our play for weeks. I tried hissin at Guns, but he was not fraid of me, so it did not work. Little by little Guns and I got used to each nuther, and I got used to mama, and she got used to me.
Now I could not magine livin anywhere else. Before I was even one whole year old, there was somethin wronged with me. Mama and my dokter figured out what was wronged, and they worked until I was almost two years old to find the right medsins for me. The medcins are not REAL spensive, but it would not matter. Mama would get the medsins for me no matter what becuz I need em.
So, today I am curled up on the big bed thinkin what a lucky girl I am. I got my mama and my speshl daddy who gives me rides on his shoulder so I can see everything. I got my bruther, Guns, who gives me baths and chasers me and shares his food and the potty and wrestles with me and snuggles with me and plays cool kitty games with me. I am warm and safe and loved. I got enuff toys to make a huge mess when I dump em all outta the toy basket. I got yummy chow and a clean potty. Most of all, I got peeple and a kitty bruther who luv me and tell me every single day that I am precious and loved.
