One year ago today my life changed forever when Mommy decided I was the kitty to fill the empty hole in her heart that Truffles left behind.
It all began 10 days earlier with a series of photos posted on the shelter website. Mommy says she saw my picture and had the same feeling in her heart that she had the first time she saw Truffles. Still, she didn't want to make a hasty decision so she saved my picture to her PC and tablet and kept looking at it over and over. When she finally decided to call the shelter and ask about me it didn't take long for her to decide that I was the one.
So on a sunny Sunday morning Mommy and my Grandpa made the hour drive to make our union legal and bring me to my forever home.
She had never been to this particular shelter before and thought it was so beautiful. She especially loved the cat quotes on the walls.
She enjoyed spending a little time with Thomas, the shelter mascot, but her heart was pounding with anticipation to meet *me*!!!
There was a cute little tortie in the front holding room, and at first Mommy thought it was me! Then she was told that I was sequestered in the shelter director's office because I don't play well with others. Tattletales!!!
As soon as Mommy saw me it was all over...I held her heart in my paws!
In no time at all the paperwork was complete and I was on my way home. Mommy rode in the back seat with me and I barely made a peep. We just gazed at each other as well fell completely in love.
I made myself at home the moment I walked in the door, immediately gravitating to the toys set out waiting for me...
...and the pawsome cat beds too! (Geez, wasn't I a skinny, scrawny little thing???)
The whole day was just a dream come true, one Mommy and I will never forget. Life is pretty darn amazing for this little tortie today. I have a wonderful family who worships the ground I walk on, and loads of friends in the blogosphere who welcomed me with open arms.
Of all the kitties in the world, Mommy picked me. And I thank Cod for her every single day.
Do you remember the day you moved to your forever home?
