My Gotcha Story

The first photos of Oui Oui.

Years ago, I was a tiny kitten in a scary place with cages and loud, noisy cats and dogs.  For a while my brothers and sisters were there, but they left one by one, then I was all alone.  I hollered and yelled cause I didn't like it.  A man put his finger in my cage and I tried to hold on but couldn't.  So I yelled some more, but no one came.  A girl looked in.  I was still yelling when a little later a lady looked in.  She had a person open the cage and she held me and scratched me.  I could hear her heart and it sounded good, so I purred and purred.  She was showing everyone what a nice kitty I was, but no one looked and the man was following, telling people I was a bad scratching kitty!  She told the man it was only cause I was lonely and he shouldn't have pulled his finger away.  But still no one was interested in me, so the lady got mad and said she'd "take" me.

A couple days later I went home with the girl who looked in and the lady.  I was SO HAPPY!  When they let me out of the cage, I ranned and ranned all around the room for 15 minutes cause it felt so good!  I did stop to look at some toys, but then I ranned some more while they laughed at me the whole time.  But I didn't care.  The lady wanted to call me Jubilee, and the girl insisted my name be Sweet Pea (Oui Oui is only my nickname).  The lady, who was now the mom, and The Girl laughed cause they were there at the loud scary place to help The Girl's granny find a dog, so this is also the story of how they helped find granny's dog.

Thanks to everyone who posted!
We just love reading Gotcha Stories.

Oh Oui Oui that is such a nice story. Being alone in a cage is so scary you would think a big hooman would know that. I am Sooooo glad you were adopted and now are a friend.

I just want to say Happy Gotcha Day again! So do you share your Gotcah day with your girl's granny's dog?

I just lobe these kitten pictures of you. Also, I had to laugh. I read what your mom wrote on Furries of Whisppy's blog about being a lazy player. Annie is getting to be like that and Lucy was definitely like that! It's no wonder you girls can play a long time!
