Derby's Gotcha Day Story

My official Gotcha Day was May 7, 2005. But mum and I had met on April 26th, after I had been in the shelter for 10 days. Mum just came through to check us out, ask questions of the shelter staff etc. Then she picked up an adoption application and left.

Then on May 6th, she came back in. Played with another cat for a bit, then I got taken from my little apartment into the play room. Well I sold myself! Meowed hello, played with her and just made myself so adorable, she couldn't resist me.

After the one day waiting period, she picked me up for good on May 7th and I took over the place. Loved the space, the windows, lots of places to explore.

I have a long story, four chapters worth. So if you want to read the long version you can read it here.
Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3 and Chapter 4.

Your mommie could have played with 100 kitties that day but she would always go back to you. After all how could she resist such a cutie pie. So glad you have a wonderful furever home.
