It's My Gotcha Day!

And it coincides with our 300th post! How's that for a funny coincidence!?

This is one of the very first photos ever taken of me. Mum thinks I look like baby Simba from the Lion King. My first day home was interesting. In the car, I was really frightened, and drooled a lot. As soon as I was allowed out to look around, Mum and Dad think I decided that this place was ok by me. I was cool as a cucumber! I sniffed around a lot, then got to play play playing! It's possible I was just trying to show off my spotty tummy, too.
This was my first ever favourite toy. His name is Marty. Marty Mouse.
Marty and I got along very well. I still have him, although he is looking a little raggedy now. Can you see how little I am in this photo?
This is how big and strong and mancatly I am now!

For a little bit of perspective, this is my first photo with my mum.And this is a photo of us taken in February. Our heads are nearly the same size!If you would like to read more about how I got to my Forever home, Suey and I wrote a post about it .

I got some good news for my Gotcha Day. Mum, Dad, Suey and I have a home in Sydney!

Also, because I am such a good foster brother, I will let you know what Jorgia, our friend at the shelter, told Mum about Stella. She came through her surgery really well, and is being incredibly friendly to everyone. She is also trying to look after the kittens that are there. Stella and Jasper were housed together in the same crate while recovering, because they are friends. When one of the nurses went into do one of the regular checks in the recovery area, Jasper was sleeping ontop of Stella, and they were both purring. Cute!

What great news all around. Happy Gotcha day Fui! You sure found a great loving home. Grete shares your happy day. It's great that you all have a home ready to go in Sydney. We can wait to hear of your moving adventures.

Thank you for the news update on Stella and Jasper. We will continue to purr for Stella and we all agree that if she keeps up being a social butterfly, she will find that forever home soon.

Oh Stella! She sure is stealing mom's heart... Too bad for mom, we live much too far for her to be able to come get her out of that shelter. We think that even though Calvin was the one Stella fostered, Jasper too appreciated having a real mommy cat around, and comforting her with his purrs was his way to say "thank you, I love you".
