Happy Gotcha Day

Today is a special day.
5 years ago this special little ball of fluff was introduced into my life.
My life has not been the same.
The moment I laid eyes on her it was utter love.
Now for her part, I can only say it took more than one moment for that feeling to be reciprocated.
She made me earn her love and loyal. Yes sireebob, she did.
It was trial by fire and tooth.
Abby has been shuttled to at least 3 homes that I know of. But, I understand her allure. She is small and adorable.
But she is fiesty and has catitude.
If you do take her on her terms -- forgetaboutit!!!!
So, those who do not wish to accept her terms parted ways.
Because June 12, 2005 brought her to me.
It was my lucky day.
It was her lucky day.
Although, she would have argued that point on that day, I think.
She has found her forever and ever home.
So today we celebrate 5 years together.
The best is yet to come.
Thank you Abby, Happy Homecoming, my sweet.
Love you,

  1. Happy Gotcha Day beautiful Abby!...A lovely post...We are very glad you found your Mommy and your loving forever home, sweetie!...Abby's personality totally reminded our Mommy of Halle=tiny with cattitude, but extremely loving on her terms!...Hope you enjoy your special day gorgeous girl...kisses...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  2. Happy Gotcha Day, Abby! We're so glad you finally found your wonderful forever home. :-)

    All cats have to be taken on their own terms. If someone is not prepared for that, they ought not to be adopting a cat, in our opinion. They could adopt a dog...or heck, just buy a stuffed animal. All Beings deserve to be accepted for who they are!!!

  3. Happy Gotcha Day sweet little Abby. We are very glad for you and your mum that you eventually found the perfect Forever Home.
