Arrival Story: After losing Patches we were looking for another cat. Spice was in foster care and we found her and fell in love. Patches knew we needed another kitty and Spice needed a good home and helped us make sure we found her!
Bio: I was staying in foster care with my mom and my sibs...we lived on a busy road and had been indoor/outdoor. My new mom and dad came to get me and saved me and I will now be indoor. I am sweet loveable and love to play
Thank you Catster Diary Gal for picking my diary about my Gotcha Day. I'm so excited to celebrate that day and had so much fun! Thanks to all my friends who gave me rosies for the Gotcha Day then for the DDP again. I sent you all thank yous and hope you all got them!
I'm so lucky to be with mom and dad. Mom says she thinks I knew it was special because I ran around all day and acted silly. I didn't think I acted any different???? I even got my FAVORITE treat and shared with Phantom.
Thanks to all for reading my diary and sharing that special day with me. It's more fun celebrating gotcha days than any other day...that is the day our parents chose US and brought us home to our wonderful FOREVER homes!
One year ago today, my day started out as every other had. I did my normal Spice things (I wasn't Spice E yet), playing with my cat mom, and my sibs, and all the other cats at the foster home I was living in, running around like a kitten does.
Then my foster mom came and got me and told me someone was coming to get me. What's that mean? She put me in a cage, which I HATE, until these people got there. Next thing I know, two people I don't know are there looking in at me. My foster mom opens the door and goes to grab me to put some Frontline on me and I BOLT. Toward the road. There is a drainage ditch there that I shot through and came out in the Church across the street. My foster mom came and picked me up, carried me to this strange car and put me in another cage. Then this strange lady gets in, sits beside me talkng to me.
I get to this new house. I'm in the basement and when they open the door, this big gray kitty comes up and hisses at me. Well, hello, I don't know you either but I'm not hissing in YOUR face, YET. MOL. I come out (they have to clean me up because I got nervous on the ride and had a little accident). This guy carries me around, showing me things and talking to me.
Over the next couple days, I stayed mostly in the basement where my litterbox and food were. But that guy would come down several times a day and pick me up and talk to me. The lady would come down sometimes too and do the same thing. Finally, I started coming upstairs with "dad". Phantom still hissed at me a couple times and I hissed back. Then we figured out it was OK NOT to hiss and started playing a little.
Today is the one year anniversary of mom and dad coming to get me...my GOTCHA day. It turned my world upside down for a few days but now I couldn't be happier. I'm an indoor kitty now, no more dangers of dogs and cars and other scary things. I get food all the time, lots of loving, which I'm getting used to now, and Phantom and I play together all the time. I get to sleep on the bed with mom and dad and sometimes like to wake them up just to pet me.
I love my home, my family and Phantom. I know I was a lucky kitty, one that was able to get out of foster care and find a good furever home. I hit the KITTY LOTTERY! I hope all kities are as lucky as me!
Thank you to all my friends who helped celebrate my Cat of The Day yesterday. I was so honored and humbled to be selected and almost overwhelmed by the outpouring of good wishes. Even from some kitties and families I didn't know.
I sent out thank yous to all of you personally, so I hope you received all those, and again, I thank you all for being my friend and for helping to have such a special day!
