It's My 9th Gotcha Day! And We're Having a Comment-thon!

Hello, and Happy Friday! I am over the moon happy today! Can you guess why? Never mind, let me just tell you... I'm celebrating my 9th Gotcha Day! I can't believe that it's been nine whole years since I came home forever. 

Abandoned Angels Cat Rescue


I was so sick when Mommy adopted me. But she nursed me back to health and today I'm doing great! I go for acupuncture and I take Chinese herbs, which have helped me so much. 

And I have the best life! I love having my silly moments...

and showing people how sweet I can be.

I love leisurely mornings...

And birdwatching from my favorite window.

And of course, I love being a voice for voiceless animals.

I sure have come a long way from being a dumpster kitty. To quote Lexy, I'm "vivacious, and quite the rambunctious little imp." And to quote Mommy, I'm "something else, that's for sure!" 

As always, I'm paying it forward by having a comment-thon for my Gotcha Day and I'm raising money for Abandoned Angels Cat Rescue. We became aware of AACR when our great pal Shiloh of McFluffersons Fluffy Fluffs became their spokescat.

Shiloh

Isn't he handsome? 

AACR is a very small 501(c)3 rescue, rehab, & re-homing operation in Columbus, OH. There is only one rescuer, Miss Lynda. She has a few fosters, and Shiloh's mom helps with the Facebook page and fundraising. That's it! They do not have a shelter or staff, so 100% of all donations go directly to medical care, spay/neuter, general care, and supplies for the cats. They are an amazing help to the homeless cats in Central Ohio.

We're happy to announce that for every comment left on this post and on our Facebook page we are donating $1 to AACR! I'm so excited! 

Here are a few AACR kitties that are looking for their forever homes.

If you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation directly to AACR, you can do so via pay pal to aawalkeroh@yahoo.com or lmcginni@columbus.rr.com. 

My wish is for all kitties all over the world to have the life that I have now. They all deserve it.

Thanks for celebrating with me! Please spread the word about my comment-thon because my goal is to raise at least $100. 

Do you have a rescued cat at home? Tell us about them in the comments below.

    All of the kitties at Eastside Cats are rescues, but The Hubby and I feel that they've rescued us more than the other way around.
    I'll share your post on FB, so we can raise more $ for AACR.

  27. Most Happy Gotcha Day Lola. I’m Mom to 2 Rescued Dogs, a Pit Bull and a Cairn Terrier Mix and FIVE rescued kitties. Kanny is a Russian Blue, she’s 18 and has kidney disease, but is doing very well, we just had an appointment with her wonderful vet, Dr Dan of Aloha Pet and Bird Hospital in Indian Harbour Beach, FL. I have 3 rescued sisters, Tehya a Blue Point Siamese and then there’s,the actual sister sisters, Catori and Raven. Mom said there was no way she could take 1 and leave the other behind. Then when mom lost her very special kitty, Grahammy Cracker S’More to nasty cancer she adopted another boy kitty and named him after 2 of our vets who are married to each other, Dr Dan and his wife Dr Danielle, so his name is DanDani and he is the Big Bopper, Big Boi and Devil Kitty! Thanks for your unique way to raise funds! Shawn’s Furkidz

  29. Hello niece, what a special day this is for you and how generous of you to celebrate it by helping others. I remember 9 years ago meeting your Mommy on Facebook when Mama Pheebs and I followed your story. This is a bittersweet time for me because Sun Jan 19 will be the 6th anniversary of Pheebs’ passing. Not only can I not believe it has been 9 years knowing you but that it has already been six since my best girl earned her wings. ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒˆ
    I have had and lost a few rescue kitties since Pheebs and currently your cousin Pearl is in charge. She’s a special needs kitty who was rescued from a hoarding situation, which we hope to maybe share one day in your blog.
    Concatulations Lola on all you and your family have done and continue to do for kitties in need, I know Mama Pheebs would be super proud of her protege. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿพ
