Gotcha Day Album - Your CATS as kittens!

Five fortunate fur-balls participated in our Gotcha parade from our bloggers group and we have posted their heartwarming below!  They are:  Pamela June Kimmel with Teddy, Kitties Blue with Cooper Murphy, Florida Furkids (Sharon) with Raz, and Timmy Tomcat  Cusack with Einstein and Heart-Cat Timmy.

Most of the  47 Gotcha Parade purr-ticipants were from our Facebook group. They are just adorable and we hope you'll visit them and read there stories HERE.

Meanwhile, here are the stories of our bloggers friends:

Sharon Keenan Spiegenhalter/Raz:

This is the first photo I took of Raz at the adoption event. Impurressive, right?

Pamela June Kimmel/Teddy

 Teddy was already 11 months old when we adopted him from the shelter but here he is an hour after seeing "his" very own toys and blanket in his new home.

Timmy Pete Cusack/Einstein

This is Baby Einstein.  A work friend called me and said she had  "dead" kitten.  After some discussion she was not sure so i said to bring him over. He was almost frozen and needed warming inside my shirt until he woke up.  It took a lot more to get him back to health and he is my "Bottle Baby."  He is sweet and loving but a little bad too  This photo shows how he got his name.

Kitties Blue

Here's Cooper Murphy on his Gotcha Day on January 7th, 2017.  He was about 15 moths old.  We rescued him from a snow storm!

Timmy tomcat Cusack/Timmy

Here is my dear Timmy, my Heart Cat.  when a rescue friend introduced us he hissed and ran YTC.  I had a 21 yo kitty at the time and I was worried a kitten would be too much for him.  Well Timmy and Inky became great friends. Timmy is the gentlest cat I have ever had and he let me know I was his special human the very first day with this Hello.  Love you, Timmy!

Thankful they are with me.

Here are Peaches & Paprika exploring their first morning with me.   They were surrendered in NYC by owners who obviously taught them love and affection (judging from their first night with me) then taken to the famous NYACC kill shelter.  Almost euthanized there, they were then taken to 2 more shelters...till I found them!  I saw flirty Peaches' internet photo  and fell in love instantly. Then I fell in love with her quiet littermate, Paprika. (Not so quiet any more)!  The first day they were with me, I almost cried, when I saw how loving and demonstrative they were! 

Thanks to those who participated and please visit the others on our page, too! Happy Thanksgiving to all! We are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Hop Today!
