Happy Gotcha Day Anniversary to Rori!
Mommy says she may give me some nummies like I'm eating in this picture today, because it's my Gotcha Day Anniversary! Cool! The last time I got some wet-food nummies was when Grandma gave us some of her TOONA. Mommy and Daddy don't eat that stuff, but they promised to give me some of a can of wet cat food. That's just fine with me! Yummy!
In case you missed it, the big family news was on our bloggie yesterday, about Grandma. I'm still not used to not having her around, but things are getting better around here. Grandpa came by last night and I actually let him see me! Not only let him, but wanted him to follow me down the hall and into the room where my cave is! I didn't want him to pet me, but I did want him to see where my cave is. My purrents were so happy! That's a big step for me, because I'm actually the shyest one of the clowder, even though I'm the Big Kitty of the House (read: alpha cat).
It's now 7 years since I first met my forever family! Did you know that that's how old Mama Lydia was when I first met her? Mama Lydia was Uncle Skylar's sister, and she was Big Kitty before me. She taught me everything about being Big Kitty in the year that I knew her. She even let me snuggle with her! I can't believe I'm as old as she was then! Of course, she was sick at that point and I'm relatively healthy, so that makes a lot of difference. The only major health problems I have are my weight and the cataract taking over my left eyeball. Those don't stop me when I really want to do something, though, even climbing up the ladder to the bunk bed to snuggle with Mommy while she naps like I did last week, playing with my little sister Little Bit, or keeping tabs on the household. I just keep on keeping on!
My brother was gotcha'd to be a foster kitten here at the same time I was gotcha'd, but then he was adopted out. I got to stay! My first human mommy was Mommy Erin, who lived with us at that time.
