Caturday - My Gotcha Day

Six years ago, way back in 2010, mum came into the shelter, found me and brought me home. Thanks mum! So I guess I was an early Valentine's prezzie for herself!
Here I am still in my cage at the shelter, Hi and get me out of here! I want to see you without these bars between us.
Our firsted ever meeting with no bars between us. She was quiet and friendly and while I wasn't super excited or playful, mum sort of knew I would fit into things.
First few minutes at home. Mum opened the carrier and just let me sit and come out on my own. I cam out and promptly went UTB! Laser eyes and all!
 
I explored her room where I was kept by myself before getting a door cracked to say hello to Derby. It took us a while to get to know each other and learn to get along, but we did OK.
Mum first portrait of me. One handsome little ginger mancat.

So now time to party! Grab some noms and a drink. Let's cellybrate forever homes and Valentine's Day!

Happy gotcha day, Ducky. I guess if Derby was called Derby because his gotcha day was Derby Day, you could consider yourself lucky that your mum didn't call you Valentine!
