Happy Gotcha Day to Mamacita and Rosa

Rosa on left and me on right

Mamacita here today Friday Sept 27, to host our 8th Gotcha Day Party!  I am most likely 9 years old and Rosa is 8 this year. We are two happy kitties - Rosa is my daughter and we are the best of friends.  On our special day we would like to remember our dear Manny, Rosa's brother, who passed in 2007 of a urinary blockage and we miss him every day.

I am on the far right, then Rosa and our beloved Manny.

Good news - our sweet Yoko is all better from her UTI - the new vet was able to get her over it and so far she has not shown any signs of it returning.  We have been going thru this for months.

He tried Baytril since she seems immune to the penicillin based antibiotics.  He also gave us something called d-mannose that helps get rid of bacteria in the urinary tract without causing any other issues - it is a natural sugar but is not absorbed into the body but it is expelled.  The bacteria is attracted to it and latches on to the d-mannose and is flushed out.  He is also giving her a maintenance dose now along with some high nutrient algae to boost her immune system.

So today we are thankful for Yoko's health at her advanced age of 20 and for all the wonderful Gotcha Day wishes Ivy received last week1

Ivy's Gotcha Day - Sept 4

Hope you are ready for a fun party!  We are celebrating my 8th Gotcha Day and kinda my birthday too since we don't know for sure when it was except sometime late in 1998.  So I guess that makes me 15!

For those of you who don't know me too well, I was born outside at my beans old house in the mountains to a feral cat colony in the woods there.  Mom noticed me always hunting for food cuz I had just had kittens and was very thin and hungry.  She put food out for me and all the others found it too so she ended up taking care of all of us.  There were a lot of us and many did not make it past kittenhood. About half of feral kittens die before they reach adulthood.  She never did see my kittens so they must not have made it.

Anyway, I was the first to get spayed, along with all the others.  Pop built us a shelter  for the cold weather and we all lived outside for many years, being fed and cared for by Mom and Pop.  As we aged or showed signs of not being well, she took us in and cared for us.  By 2005 I was the only one left outside.  I had lived thru two hurricanes, lots of very cold winters and the loss of many of my cat buddies and family.  When the head mancat of the feral colony Big Guy died, another big male cat took  over his territory and was trying to run me off.  I had no place to go so I would fight or hide. Even tho I  loved hunting and being outside Mom knew it was time to bring me in.

Me when I lived outside.

I was very wild and would not let her touch me let alone get near me so when she caught me to bring me inside, she had no idea if I would ever adapt but I did!  I loved being inside, warm and safe and fed.  I enjoyed being with my buddies, Joey, Minnie, and Sweetpea. I love toona, catnip, cream cheese and all kinds of food and treats.  I do have early CRF and am FIV positive but that doesn't slow me down.  Oh ya, I don't have any teeth left either.

Playing peek a boo.

I have lots of fumy quirks - like I don't meow but kind of quack like a duck.  (Go here if you want to hear that ) I bite at everything but without teeth it is not a problem.  I love to play but get upset when others join in.  I love Mom and Pop and would rather sit on them than anywhere else.  Every morning when it is time to eat I go get Mom up by sitting next to her on the bed and quacking at her.

So in honor of me today's party will feature cream cheese, nip and toona!  Have fun and stay as long as you want.Thank you so much for coming and helping me celebrate.
