From Mugshots to Sheer Heaven

Chopin here ~

Remember this mugshot of me at the shelter?



And that photo of me with Mom Julie after she fell head over paws (I'm so glad)




It's been a whole year today, my Gotcha Day and I've never been happier.

I spend a lot of time on the porch where I can pretend I'm in the jungle.

My big brother Tinker is my guide:

Me: What's that over there?

Tinker: An ugly, hairy critter who likes to nibble on cat ears.

Me: Oh, no! I'm glad I'm safe in here! (I knew he was just pulling my leg)




Then, for the first time, I met the "red dot." Tinker was trying to catch it as I watched.


I have been very happy with treats, good livin' and lovin' and a family and home to call my own.

And this is just the first year, my furriends.

Life is good.
