Yee Haw! I had a New Years miracle occur - I've found my birth pawrents! Yes this is the most incredible story ever.
My momma met me in San Franfuncisco at the SPCA "Maddie's Adoption Center" on Dec 14, 2007. I was 4 months yungun and had taken a truck ride on the highway to the big City, from the Yolo County SPCA. I was so yungun that I don't remember being transferred off death row to San Fran where they thought I'd have a better chance of finding a forever home (oh man they were smart folks!).
Momma never gave up trying to find out my history and a few weeks ago she wrote a note to the Yolo County SPCA. The lady was so nice but said I couldn't have come from there - oh I think she was a little mixed up. But that nice mixed up lady put momma in touch with another lady who was amazed at my name.
Seems no kitties in the Yolo County SPCA ever been named Yolo! The lady was intrigued and asked momma abundant questions about me - momma had to put her brain in motion and really think for a change. She remembered the corny name I came fully equipped with, "Bamboo" and then the miracle happened! The lady on the phone went bonkers & was hooting and hollering on the phone, cuz she'd found my file in the puter, and told Momma alllll about me.
Seems the head Doktor - yesiree the big enchilada Vet at the SPCA in Yolo County had fostered me and I was born there cuz my mom gave birth to me and my sisfurs and brofurs right there at the SPCA in Yolo County. I don't remember if we had a family sized suite or not cuz I was too yungun. Then the Vet took us in to her house and fostered me and the clan. Can you imagine how excited these folks are to hear I'm the Cowboy Kitty who moved to the City of San Franfuncisco? I sent them fotos too - pics of me grown up and expanded a little! And more news, the lady who selected me to make the long road trip to San Fran, is coming to visit me at my house here - oh Yee Haw! I don't think I'll remember her much cuz I was so yungun then.
So I ended that crummy year on the right paw - and my dream has come true cuz now I know all about my first part of my life. Never ever give up on your dreams.

What a fascinating, fantastic tale!
Oh you are sooo much a Yolo and not a Bamboo. How wonderful that they had records of you and your family. How very sweet too that that smart lady who selected you to go to San Francisco is now coming to your house to visit you!
What a great story. Not everyone is as lucky as you to know where they came from. You are truly blessed.
Have a great day.
Love, Kibbles, Francis, & Yoda

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!
Wow Yolo, what a cool story!!
That's a really cool story and a great way to begin the new year! I am so happy your humans found out more about where you came from. My four brother and me were rescued along with our cat mom from a hoarding situation. There were dozens and dozens of cats living in my house! Murray's mom was found walking on the street in late December (brrrr...) and the humans were able to see her and my four brothers at the shelter where they adopted him. Lenore's mom was a very young, pregnant stray when our neighbors took her in. The humans got to play with her (she is the sweetest cat!)
Have a great 2010, Yolo!
What a nice happy ending, to a new beginning in your forever home.
