Mom almost forgot that today was two special girl's Gotcha days - Rosa and her momcat Mamacita. They have come a long way since we took them inside 11 years ago - but still run and hide when things get busy at the house.
Mamacita was a tiny little cat sneaking over to the back door of our old house, 11 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.

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.)

Angel Manny loved to play with the laser light toy and would snuggle with the best of them as long as it was another cat. We lost our beloved Manny, from a very serious urinary blockage when he was two, but he is forever in our hearts

Thank you for stopping by to wish them a Happy Gotcha Day!
