MY GOTCHA DAY.....

TODAY MAY 11, 2011, I'M CELEBRATING MY
9TH YEAR OF COMING TO LIVE WITH
MOM AND DAD!!!
WE THANK
SAMMY, ANDY AND SHELLY'S MAMA J
for MAKING THIS VERY PRETTY
GOTCHA BADGE.  Do you see the cute Lady Bug?
May 11, 2002, was the Saturday before Mother's Day
(Mom says I'm the gift that keeps on giving, MOL)
Mom and Dad had been without a kitty for nearly 2.5 years and their life was dull, boring and absolutely no fun...that is until they saw a little ball of gray and white fur who did not know the meaning of no and who tested every nerve in their bodies for the first 9 months.  Below is a picture of dynamite me and my
littermate Lucy (who was adopted by Dad's brother). As you can see from this picture, both of us had serious cat-a-tude.
This picture was taken on May 19, 2002.  We were 2.5 months old
Lucy was a calico

  Lucy was a rebel rouser too.  When she was about 1, she ate a penny.  It got blocked in her intestines requiring major surgery by a very funny Vet.  When the surgery was over,
he told her Dad the surgery was usually 600.00 green papers; however, since he had the penny he would only charge him $599.99.  MOL  Lucy recovered nicely from the surgery. Her Dad bought a piggy bank for his pennies.  Dad's brother got married when Lucy was nearly 3.  However, his wife had severe allergies to kitties. After being apart for 3 years, Lucy and I hissed and spit  DID NOT like each other at all.  For this reason, there was no chance of Lucy living with us. We had been only cats for 3 years.  Both of us wanted to be Alpha cat. Lucy went to live with a nice graduate student Mom knew from NCSU.  He later moved to Coll-ie-rado and we lost track of Lucy.
BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS I, MADI, HAVE REMAINED TRUE TO OUR SISTER PACK....TO KEEP OUR PEEPS ON THEIR TOES 24/7/365.
SINCERELY,
MADI, aka DIVA aka Mads, aka Puddin' Head, aka Pumpkin Face aka DIP-C, DIVA ISLAND PRINCESS CAT

    You and Lucy look like you were a real handful as kittens. Cat-a-tude is every kitty's right, practice at will.

    Hugs and Purrs,

    Madi, I am so glad that you came to live with your mom and dad and made their lives more interesting and fun. They are very good people and deserve to have a princess kitty to live with them and make their lives whole.

    It is also important to always keep them on their toes and you are so good at that, dear Madi. You not only entertain your people, but through the mom person you entertain the whole world! :o)

    Congratulations to all of you for finding the perfect fit!
