My official Gotcha Day!

Over the past couple of weeks, I posted about a few special days.  First was my Rescue-versary when I was saved from the shelter.  Next was the anniversary of when Mommy adopted me. Well, yesterday was the day I consider my official Gotcha Day.  Why? Well, four years ago yesterday I was finally discharged from the hospital and went with Mommy to my forever home! (We're one day late in posting.  Sometimes Mommy is not a very good secretary.)

I was so excited to go home that I didn't sleep a wink the night before! And oh boy, was I meowing my little head off when Mommy and Will picked me up! I was so happy  I talked all the way from Manhattan to Queens!

I had to live in the bathroom for a while (which I called the Executive Suite - it sounded better than "the bathroom") because I was still sick and still on medicines.  I had diarrhea because of those yucky antibiotics, but Mommy didn't mind.  She just put towels down on the floor.

Here are a few pictures of me on my first day at home: (It was so nice to have room to stretch my legs and not live in a cage anymore!)

Ahhh... this bed is comfy
Hi Mommy! Thank you for brining me home.
When do I get to meet my sister?

And here I am on day two.  I was already settled in and loving having a home. 
This is one of Mommy's favorite pictures of me.

Lexy and I have the same wish, and that's for all animals to be as lucky as we are.  We want to save the world one rescued pet at a time!
