Ellie and Cory's Gotcha Day!


We woke up this morning and were terribly upset that mom seemed to have ::forgotten:: our Gotcha Day! 

Ellie:  I immediately went to work, running through the house and bunnykicking my parents feet until they yelled at me to stop.  I didn't.  

Finally mom read our messages from our good furriends and finally got the message.  Yes, it is our 6th anniversary of our Gotcha Day!  The most important day of the year.


We wouldn't be here if it weren't for the wonderful humans at United Paws.  They saved our lives and made sure we got the best forever home EVER!  Together!!!

::purrrrrr:: 

Cory in her daddy's arms at the foster home. 

 Ellie checking out the travel carrier before saying her goodbyes.

I don't think we've ever written about this, but our ride home was quite the adventure.  We had to drive an hour and a half to get home and we had  never had much experience in a car.  Momma Ellie had panic attacks which meant that mom and dad had to drive slow and stop lots of times to calm her down.  When we eventually got to our new home, we were thrilled.  We immediately settled in on the couch and had a nice long nursing session.

 Below is a photo taken with Momma Ellie's favorite toy in the whole wide world "beloved snakie".  She played with this until it finally completely fell apart.  Momma still misses him.

Happy Gotcha Day, you two Beauties! Ellie, Mommy's Very First kitty hated the car too, the vet was only 10 minutes away and poor Mercedes would have ropes of saliva as big as your first Snakie.
We hope you are going to have a HUGE nipfest tonight!
