Thank you so much for all of the comments, gifts, and pmails I have received in celebration of my Gotcha Day!
Nine years ago today, I went home with my Mommy, and we started our adventure together. At the time, the shelter estimated that I was two years old. They had given me a birthdate of November 22. This day happened to be the date that I was examined by the shelter vet. We continue to celebrate this day as my birthday, because it is the day that all the events were set in motion which led me to my Mom.
It was one week after my second birthday that I came to live with my Mommy. When she first saw me, I was part of the holiday adoption event that the San Francisco SPCA holds every year. That event changed my life. Though I wasn't a cuddly little kitten, and even though she planned originally to adopt another cat that day, Mommy saw something in me that spoke to her heart and told her that I was the one.
Over the years, Mommy and I added a Daddy to the family, and also a doggie brother. I am a very thankful cat today for my family and my home.
As I celebrate my Gotcha Day, I want to say a special thank you to everyone out there who has given a home to a cat that didn't have one. The gift of a loving family is the greatest gift a cat could ever have!

Oh Sigmond, you are one handsome, eloquent dude!
I'm not surprised that your Mom Gotcha'ed you ~ I was no cute kitten either (just a stray on the streets) and Sweets was looked at "awwed" over, but passed on by for nearly a year before my family happened upon her (at her shelter's local adoption event - which they had wandered into by accident, to buy me more catnip!)
You're so right though. There is no greater gift than a home and family who loves you. I'm so glad you got yours!
