Mamacita and Rosa's Gotcha Day!


We are having a big festive celebration for their sixth Gotcha Day - Sept 27 -with a Fiesta theme for our two lovely ladies Mamacita and her daughter Rosa.  Some of our cats have Spanish names on account of Pop being from Texas!


Mamacita was a tiny little cat sneaking over to the back door of our old house, six years back to eat whatever the feral cats left.  Mom put a special dish out for her and before she knew it, Mamacita moved two tiny kittens over to the neighbor's rickety old shed.  They were wild wild wild but would come out for food.  The kittens both had URIs so Mom set a kennel cage out to catch them and their mom to bring them inside.  Rosa and her brother Manny had to have antibiotics and eye ointment for weeks. It got so they hated to see Mom and would run from her.  We can't blame them.

The three of them six years ago.

Mamacita and Rosa are our shyest cats and often don't come out when there is lots going on.  They prefer quiet.  They love to be petted and to eat (heehee you can see that from their sizes.) We lost their brother, our beloved Manny, from a very serious urinary blockage when he was two, but he is forever in our hearts.

So grab a party hat,  help yourself to the cake, yummy shrimp nachos and nip flavored margaritas!  We even have a mariachi band so let's party!!!

This is a good day to share the news...tiny kitten Cobbie was transported from South Carolina to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue foster mom successfully this weekend.  The very sweet kind lady who found Cobbie hiding all by herself in the shrubbery near a McD's drove all the way to bring her safely to our hands.  She wanted to keep her but when Cobbie tested positive for FIV, she could not not since she had other cats.  Cobbie rode very well in her carrier and will join another FIV kitten, Angelica, at her foster Mom's.  She promised to send photos of the two playing together.  Anyone want two adorable black and white kittens??? Let us know! We will be doing a post about the two of them later in hopes that we can find one forever home for both of them!

Happy gotcha day to both Mamacita and Rosa! What a spread, look at that yummy food. And the band is terrific, nice touch!

Purrs that Cobbie and Angelica find a wonderful forever home together. Honestly, if we were closer, geographically, the mom would be sorely tempted. She used to say that if Annie passed she'd adopt two little girls--"Merry" and "Mercy".... :-) (She's not ready yet, though.)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Happy Gotcha Day Mamacita and Rosa we will be over to party as soon as mum has finished cooking a chickhen for us to bring over. Please save us a meowgarita each.
We are so happy for Cobbie too.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Your link to the rescue site won't work. We get a page saying bwr DOT org is for sale.

We came by to wish Mamacita & Rosa a Happy Gotcha Day. We loved their story - except the part about losing Manny is sad. But looks like the girls are having a big Mexican party and lots of fun.


OOPS for some reason we said PURRDAY and it's Your GOTCHA day...if Mom had a brain she'd be in real trouble...sorry!

Smudge said...

Cobbie and Angelica are the cutest little things!! (according to my mom and dad)

Happy Gotcha Day Mamacita and Rosa! What a great story about how you were gotcha'd! And what a great Mexican party you put on! I really love the hats -- good for taking siestas.

And Cobbie and Angelica are such sweet little kittens. I'm glad they are keeping each other company until their furever folks find them.

Boo-Bah AKA Iris said...

A belated Happy Gotcha day to you!! I loved reading your story. It always makes me happy to hear and read stories with happy endings like yours.

I hope Cobbie and Angelica will find forever homes. They are both so cute!!

I have a special place in my heart for black and white kitties. I lost one to cancer when he wasn't even three years old.

Teri and her Stylish Adventure Cats said...

We missed your gotcha day! Looks like fun and Teri loves Mexican food and drink and we love Pinatas (really, Teri will tell you that!) And yay for lil Cobbie and kudos for your efforts in helping her, too!!
