8 Gotchas

Dec 3 2013
She came home with me!
I adopted Annabelle from a rescue who had her on
display at Pet Smart.
I was so sad to learn later that her kitten (one) had
been adopted out just a few days earlier.
I would have taken both of them.

So today marks 8 years that Annabelle has been a part
of my family.

Where did all the time go to?

She was but a kitten herself and now
she's a middle aged lady.

We'll grow old(er) together.

My little princess.

She is such a Godsend to me.

I am filled with gratitude of her being here.

She knows how to make me smile.

With all her little poses.

And silliness.

She's a good companion.

I pray we have many more days ahead of us.
But, as I've discovered you never know 
what life has in store for you.
But for today, we will celebrate
a good occasion with the hopes of
many more to come!



  1. I never knew Annabelle had been a young mumcat. I'm glad you adopted her - as you are, too, quite obviously. She is the most photogenic cat on the Blogosphere, I think.

  2. Annabelle, I am happy that you have such a loving and happy home :) Happy Gotcha day!
    Purrs, Julie
