Can you believe that that woman who calls herself my mother forgot my gotcha day? It was 10 days ago. Last year around July 18th or 19th, Mom was planning a BBQ for a couple of our Blogging Mom's (Grr's, etc. Mom, and Victor Tabbycat's Mom (this was before Nina)). She got a call that day from Grr's mom saying she didn't think she would be able to make it because she had just gotten a call from a friend who was fostering a cat, and she needed to pick up the cat because her tummy troubles were too much to handle anymore. Grr's mom didn't know what to do, because the only day she could pick up the cat was the day of the BBQ. Mom said some words that changed my life...She said, "Bring her here, I'll foster her." Needless to say, Mom has failed at fostering twice now (Gracie was supposed to be a foster also).
Of course the cat with the tummy troubles was me, and I couldn't believe my luck. Even though I am a crotchety old lady who still occasionally has tummy troubles, I was adopted. I couldn't believe that she would keep me for real and true. I was about 10 at the time, and as previously mentioned, I have tummy trouble. But Mom fell in love with me, grouchy personality, tummy problems and all.
I am lucky to have found my forever home (even if I do have a Mom who can't remember when she gotcha'd me.)
