gotcha day!

Here's Boy's Mummy invading his blog for a moment.
It's his Gotcha Day today and i guess it's time for me to say something about my dear Boy.
14 years ago, my Boy decided to adopt me for his own.
He took a look at me, meowed to grab my attention, and followed me home.
And made himself at home.
From a tiny little thing who fitted into the palm of my hand, still not totally weaned on solid food, he blossomed into a fine kitty.
14 years. I guessed I tested his patience quite a bit. I'm sure it wasn't easy training me as his mummy.
14 years of unconditional love he's given me. I hope for squillions more.
He taught me love requires nothing.
He taught me love is everything.
He let me understand that no matter how other things are, everything can be set right with a purr, some headbutts and snuggling together.
Well, I'm just thankful of the day I met my Boy and the time we have together.
May many more years follow!
Here's to my Boy, the angel in a fur coat!
Happy Gotcha Day!

Happy Gotcha Day, Boy. May you have many, many more.

It's impressive how a kittie will look at someone and decide "You need a kittie in your life. I'm going home with you". (and how little it matters how much the bean resists!)

A very Happy Gotcha Day to you, Boy! Your story tells us that you sure know a good Mummy when you see one! And I know exactly how you felt - when I curled up in my mom's hand, I knew that's where I wanted to live forever.

My mom says to tell your Mummy that's the best description she's ever read about the joy of loving a kitty!
