Belated Happy Gotcha Day Gracie and Boo Update

I'm gonna fire me a Momma!
She forgot AGAIN about my GOTCHA!
Well, since she has the opposable thumbs and gives me food
I may hold off totally firing her, but wow I mean
she better start paying closer attention to the dates!
For those who may not know Momma knows precisely
my Gotcha date because she was blogging then and wrote all about it.
You see way back on July 19, 2005 she was at the ACA of Clay County
looking for Button. Button was a feral tortie girl kitty who
followed Momma home on night from this small strip mall not
far from where we all live. That in itself is another tall tail, but I digress.
Momma and Daddy were at the ACA as the last resort looking for Button.
They didn't find her there, but they found me.
I was outside the front door begging each and every hooman who came up
to take me home.
The folks inside did not want to take me inside because they knew
I would not last, Momma didn't want to explain that to me.
So, an emotional Momma scooped me up and took me home.
Once she was in the car driving home she wondered what in the
world she had just done!
You see Abby had been adopted just 5 weeks earlier, and she
wasn't adjusting well to Boo, Ping and Jinx.
So, she was scared about where she was going to keep me
and how I would adapt.
As it turns out, the Vet gave me the A-OK and Momma
introduced me and there was NO problem. NO adjustment, nada.
I just fit right in.
Abby of course, not so much.
Abby was off limits for 6 months.
And then it was only supervised visits for awhile until Momma
saw Abby was gonna be A-OK too.
But, that's Abby not me.
And this is about me.
I was once abandoned at the ACA, only to be shushed and ignored,
and sadly thought of as throwaway.
But, Momma and Daddy saved me from that and now I am one
happy girl.
Yes, the scared part of me still thrives and I only trust Momma and
Daddy, but I do have a great life.
Thank you all for thinking of me when my own Momma forgot!
Now next year you'd better NOT forget again!!!

Boo's test results showed if I understood the Vet (I haven't actually talked to him,
but oh how I've tried) an elevated calicum level.
I have been reading about what that means and I don't like it.
ALL of her other levels were fine.
So, I again have another call into the Vet.
It being Sunday I won't hear until at least tomorrow.
Since it is a multiVet place I am not sure if her Vet is working tomorrow or not.
She has stopped vomiting and is acting normal.
She has lost weight. Now the weight loss has been subtle and over a long period of time
but it is down.
But not so much that Vet is terribly worried, but he said she needs to gain some.
So we will work on my little model figure and see if we can fatten her up.
