Its my Gotcha Day!


I know I don't usually post on the weekends but Meowmy was up so I had her turn on the computer.

I'ts my 2 year Gotcha Day!! And you know what? Some stuff has really changed over the past 2 years but I've really had a wonderful life so far. Yesterday Meowmy came home from work not feeling well (she needed a nap which is why we didn't visit many of our friends, sorry!). She got in bed and Kaze of course snuggled with her. You know what I did? I tap-tapped on the covers until I was invited to snuggle too. We all lay there for a long time. After that Meowmy brushed me with the zoom groom. I purred and purred and purred. I even purred when she picked me up.

You see, when I was a tiny little kitten I could not stand for my Meowmy to be upset and I would purr and snuggle it out of her if she was sad or not feeling well. Then I got sick and I had to be poked and proded and live in our cat room for 2 months. I was not happy but I had a strong will to live and a Meowmy who spent many hours with me. Being alone for so long though (she couldn't spend 24 hours in the small room with me) made me very independant and aloof. I'm finally starting to be friendly again, its been on and off but I really really DO want to be pet and snuggled- I'm just not all that sure about it. Plus Kaze is a Meowmy HOG.

I can't believe its been 2 years since I was picked up away from my Mom and brothers, shoved in a carrier, and driven 2.5 hours to another state. I was only 8 weeks old. But I came to the right place because most other families would not have given me the many chances I've demanded. I'm loved and I know I'm lucky. But I'd still rather not be fussed over.

Happy Second Gotcha Day! :) We sound rather alike in forgetting we loved to snuggle for a while, it's pretty much all come back to me now though and I too will be celebrating my 2nd Gotcha Day this month! :)

Happy Gotcha Day Latte! I can see why we like each other. You are a little Virgo cat if you were 5 weeks old on your Gotcha Day and I am a Pisces so we complement each other well... hmm? My gotcha day wasn't so long ago!

Happy Belated Gotcha Day, Latte! Since you don't usually post on the weekends, we didn't check out your site until tonight. We're sorry that you had such a rough time health-wise and that that affected your relationship with your Meowmy. Your meowmy is there for you and loves you very much. Don't hesitate to snuggle with her even if Kaze is also there. You have the power to make her feel ALL better.

Happy Gitcha Day Latte - you were one cute kitten back then! It's nice of you to cuddle with your Meowmy, I'm sure she liked it alot.

I'm sorry I missed your gotcha day! You were well worth all the effort!

I wasn't poked and proded, but I'm also going through an independent spell, although since Kavan came along I'm getting more loveable again.
