Today is Harley's and my Gotcha Day! Eight years ago today, we were living at a vet's house with our momma cat, another momma cat, a big man cat, a dog & a people family. The family was about to leave on a trip and Harley (called Spot at the time) was the last kitten without a forever home. The family was going to keep me because the boy wanted to keep me. No one had picked "Spot." He was shy, afraid of everything and some people thought the spot on his nose "ruined" his Ragdoll looks--can you imagine?!?! Mom says it makes him extra special and handsome!
Anyways, mom and her granddaughter came over to see "Spot." Mom has a soft spot for what she calls the "underdog" or maybe she means "undercat"--MOL. She wanted to give "Spot" a forever home, but she wanted two kittens because she was afraid that one kitten would get lonely when she went to work. So Mom and her granddaughter went to lunch & to PetSmart to buy lots of kitty stuff while the family thought over whether the boy was willing to let me (the boy called me Yoda) go with "Spot" to a forever home.
When mom and her granddaughter came back, the family said they would let me go with my brother. So mom and her granddaughter took "Spot" & me home & everyone was very excited. Mom's granddaughter wanted to name us Zack & Cody because those were the names of characters in a kids' show she liked to watch. But my brother had such a loud purr that mom suggested he be named Harley, like the motorcycles. So we became Harley & Cody.
We lived in mom's bedroom for the first few days, while we got used to our new home. The day after we came home, mom and her granddaughter went out & came back with a big cat tree for us. We loved it so much that we were climbing on it before mom could even get it in place. She was laughing so hard at us--we don't know why!?!
So here we are eight years later. Mom says she cannot imagine life without us. And we feel the same about our mom and our forever home. We only wish every kitty in the whole world had a wonderful forever home.
Love and purrs to all our Catster friends.
Cody & Harley
