It's My Gotcha Day!

I have been part of my family for two years. Mum and dad say bringing me home was the best decision they have ever made for our family. They love me very much, and believe I have made their lives and Fui's life better than they could have imagined:) They believe it was fated for me to be part of their family. They wanted to get two kittens initially, but thought it better to wait and see how they went with one kitty first. When they took Fui back in for his booster vaccinations a couple of weeks later, I was the only kitty left in the adoption area, me, his little sister and littermate! I raced to the side of the area, and Fui was trying to get out of the carrier to me. The vet said to go ahead and put Fui in with me, and we played like we'd never played before! That was it for mum. I was Fui's sister, and I was her little girl, and I was going home with them! Dad never stood a chance. MOL!

This photo is of me on my first night home, at my scruffiest best. I'm in the cardboard castle that my dad made. He is very clever, and I had lots of fun in there.

This is a photo taken a few minutes later. I switched between scruffy and stunning with great ease:) Fui and I were ecstatic to be back together again, and have been hard to seperate ever since. He has been a great brother, looking out for me and being my friend. The picture below is one of mum's favourite photos of us. She has it on her nightstand, even now when she and dad are travelling. She thinks I look like a cute little pixie, and Fui looks like a stately lion (like Parker's Seigfried and Roy!). I love to look after Fui, and see it as an important duty to keep him shiney and clean. I think he rather likes it too.
Playing is my favourite thing to do, though! If it can be whapped, I will whap it. I have also grown from a scruffy babycat to a glamorous and pretty ladycat, if I do say so myself. Mum also thinks that if her heart looked like a kitty, it would look just like me:)

I know my mum is sad we aren't together on my gotcha day, but I know that our family will be back together very soon, and we can all have snuggles together:)
