HAPPY GOTCHA DAYS ARE HEEEEERRRRRRE!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, effurrybody and welcome to our surprise Gotcha Day Pawty!
Three of us are celebrating Gotcha Days this weekend--me, Anastasia and Mitty!
Just look at this spread!
Come on in, help yourself to some nommies and yummies and a drink or two..
while we tell you our story..
First, let me get something to wet my whiskers and my whistle..
By the way, the purrbon is mighty fine. You might try one of the niptinis, meowgaritas, singapaw slings or other fancy drinks we have on hand..
Now to the gotcha stories, starting with me..
Mom Julie found me at the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk, Maine. Originally, my name was Jerry. She wanted me sooo bad after seeing me online and how cute I was. Well, fate made me play "hard to get."
Let me explain.
Setting clocks back and adopting me came hand in paw.
It was a comedy of errors. Mom Julie set all the clocks back in the house and forgot to set her watch. So, she arrived at the shelter an hour early, really put out and fussed up that it wasn't open. Then, somebody (after calling the nut house) leaned out the door and asked who she was looking for. "Jerry," she said. The lady checked and found out I was at Petsmart. Mom Julie then high-tailed it (hehe) down to the store and guess what--she didn't see me and the adoption place was locked up, not to open until a volunteer from the shelter came.
Mom Julie flipped her lid.
Decided to go shopping.
It was open!
She saw me and fell in love with the funny way that I walk, all the toes on my paws, my face, and my overall drop-dead cuteness!
That was two years ago.
Last year, she went back to the same shelter after seeing Anastasia online.
|There go the hot dogs!!|
When Mom Julie arrived, someone else was at her cage! Oh, no! There they were--a volunteer and some other lady. How could this happen?! Anyway, back out in the lobby there were kittens.
That's when she found Mitty whose given name was Bolt. (what a perfect name for him that was!)
Then, by Cod, it turned out the other lady didn't want Anastasia after all.
The Mom was in love with two kitties at the same time! There was no way she was going to leave Anastasia behind. So, she adopted them both on the same day.
So, cheers! Happy Gotcha Day to all of us--me, November 9, 2010; Anastasia & Mitty (November 12, 2011, so we just say November 9th.
Look how grown up Mitty looks now (compared with his kitten photo in the sidebar)
Thank you so much for stopping by and helping us celebrate!
Tom, Mitty, Anastasia, Tinker and Mom Julie
