Happy Gotcha Day Anniversary to Starla!
Happy Gotcha Day Anniversary to me! I remember the day I was gotcha'd by my forever family! I had wintered out the ice storm in their basement and it was finally starting to be spring. I was coming inside to visit them frequently, along with the rest of my biological family (Smokey, Little Bit, and Boo-Boo Kitty). Smokey and I were both in heat, so my forever purrents asked the people who actually owned me (two doors down) if they could adopt us, and the people said yes. Smokey became a foster, and was then adopted to Mommy Erin and became her forever kitty. I was going to be a foster, but something wonderful happened! Besides getting spayed, that is, which in itself was a wonderful thing. Not the surgery, but the fact that I didn't have to worry about that anymore.
The wonderful thing that happened was this:
I was brought inside so that I could have my surgery the next day. After my surgery, Skylar curled around me on the futon and looked up at our purrents, pleading with his eyes for permission to keep me. How could they deny him this wish, when he'd lost his sister a few months before, and we'd all lost Sara Kitty a few weeks before? Of course, they told him that he could adopt me as his kitty! Yep, that's right! I was adopted by another kitty!
He and I were best buddies until he went to the Bridge a few years ago. Now, my best buddies are Rori, the twins, and Panther. I live in the bathroom (yes, I "graduated" from my isolation room due to the Prozac helping my anxiety) and have my own special cave in there under the sink cabinet. And, guess what? I don't even need the Prozac anymore! I haven't taken any for the last month and a half! I'm going to celebrate my gotcha day anniversary by going to eat with the other kitties in the dining room, venturing into the living room to use the scratcher, and greeting Grandma in the hallway when she gets up! Grandma gave us tuna a couple days ago, and I even went out to eat it with everyone else, sharing a plate with Dare!
