Raven’s 9th Gotcha Day

Raven (11 yrs old)I posted my adoption story two years ago, so I’m posting a shortened version here.

On December 5, 2008, Mom & Dad visited the local SPCA adoptable cats room looking for someone to add to their family.

I came down from my hiding spot on the tallest perch and tried to crawl into her purse that was sitting on the floor.  My soon-to-be Mom started laughing because I was a lot bigger than her purse, but I was determined to get into it.

My soon-to-be Mom set me on her lap, where I quickly curled up, purred, buried my head, and settled in for a nap.

I could tell when they entered the kitty room that she and my new Dad would give me the quiet home that I needed. I chose them, but I never imagined getting such a wonderful home.

Mom still thanks me for choosing her. And Dad kind-of likes me too.  😉
