Its my Second Gotcha Day!



Two years ago today my humans came and plucked me from my breeders house to go live in my forever home. I spent the whole 4 hour ride screaming and bloodying my claws trying to escape. I hated that they took me from my home and my family and my brother. I was 6 months old and MAD. I was so mad I did not want anyone near me or touching me at all. My Lap Lady cried for days because I was so unhappy and I hated her. She even considered taking me back to my breeder. Luckily my Tall Man mediated and I purred for him first and let him pet me. Then came the Lap Lady's lap and then came Latte. Chase- well he was HUGE and scary looking. I'd only ever seen other frootbats before so I didn't really even know he was a cat.

Do you know what I get as a Gotcha Day present? A trip to the vet. Nice right? I get to have my yearly exam tomorrow- whoop-dee-do. At least I'm bringing the meezer-sausage with me to find out how much he weighs.

I can't believe your present is a trip to the vet. That's just wrong!

Happy Gotcha Day Kaze. We can't believe that your present is a trip the the VET. There better be a better present than that. After all, we got an air conditioner for our birthday.

Happy Gotcha Day, Kaze! :) Wow, we can't believe you were so unhappy at first! We were both pretty good during the drive to our Forever Home - we both napped most of the way.

Good luck at the vet. We hope you get a better Gotcha Day gift (ie. treats, toys, playtime) when you come back from the vet.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Kaze! So every year you have to celebrate your Gotcha Day by going to the V-E-T? That does not sound very festive. But, at least you have the Lap Lady!

Junior said...

Hey, Happy gotcha day, Kaze! Let us know if the humans give you anything good (and anything you might want to share, hint-hint).

Hoping your v*t visit is routine and short...

Oh, they can do something better than a trip to the VET, can't they???

Vincent and Mike said...

Poor Kaze. I'm sure Dana has room in her playhouse if you want to move in with her. You are always welcome here, ;) We lynx points gotta stick together.

Kaze
Happy Gotcha Day!
Woo woo woo there's a lot to be celebratin today. So many purrdays (it's my sisfur's Abby purrday today) and all of these parties...wowowowowowowowow..and Ping is gonna be OK too. Even though one of us bit him and is causing his ankle to be a bad owie, he's being a good brofur and not telling on any of us. The only one Mom and Dad know it wasn't was Boo, cuz she stays in her room all day behind the closed door, so it wasn't Boo. But today is a day for celebrating...Momma thought that your story about coming to live with your lap lady sounded like when Abby came to live with us. She was so mad and she hated everyone! It made Momma really sad too. Abby wasn't like the rest of us, we were all abandoned outside, Abby came from a nice big comfy house...

The Furry Kids said...

Happy happy happy Gotcha Day, Kaze! I hope you have a wonderful day. I am sorry that you have to go to the V-E-T. I feel your pain. Hopefully, no one will stick anything up your spot #13 or steal your bloods or pee. I'm crossing my paws for you.

Love,
Tazo

Oh Kaze, that's a terrible Gotcha Day present! (I'll bet you get something nicer later.)

Happy #2 Gotcha Day!

Sunny's Mommy said...

That is NOT a good Gotcha Day present! Happy 2nd Gotcha Day, Kaze :-) I hope you manage to have a good one despite that thing LL has planned.

Happy GOTCHA day! I hope your vet visit is not too terrifying, but I am sure it will be exhausting like mine was. Make sure they offer you some really comfy places to sleep when you get home! Good luck.
Purrs,

Derby said...

Happy Gotcha Day Kaze. You are happy now, but it sure didn't start out that way!

Willow said...

Going to the vet is a horrible gotcha day present so I hope that you got lots of play time and treats today! Both China Cat & I have vet visits this week also...

I'm glad that you have your forever home with your Tall Man and Lap Lady and Latte and Chase!

Purrrrrrrrrrs, Willow

Tyler said...

Kaze, I think your story proves that when you love somebody or somecat you love them VERY deeply. I'm sorry that you suffered so much leaving your first home, but am thrilled that you were able to fall in love again with your new family.

Happiest Belated Gotcha Day. I'm so pleased that you are on the blog. Oh, by the way I'm a cat too, like Chase, a non-frootbat type.

Forty Paws said...

Geez. A trip to the V-E-T! That sucks. Happiest belated Gotcha Day Dude!
