Truffle's First Gotcha Day






A special thank you to Ann for my beautiful Gotcha Day graphics!

It was one year ago today that Truffle came to live with Mom Paula.  Truffle connected with Mom Paula from the very first photo Mom Terri sent to her after she was born.  Mom Paula was still grieving over the loss of Sweet Praline when Truffle was born, but when Mom Paula went to Mom Terri's house to see all of the babies, Truffle connected with Mom Paula immediately.  When Mom Paula picked up Truffle for the first time, Truffle totally relaxed in her arms and fell asleep.  Mom Terri was shocked and said that was the first time Truffle had ever done that with anyone and it was obvious Truffle had chosen Mom Paula as her own.

Many of you also know that Truffle's little brother, Beignet also chose Mom Paula that day and was scheduled to come live with us, but he left us for the Bridge on August 23.  Mom Paula and Terri waited an additional two weeks to let Truffle come home to see how she'd react to her second vaccination.  Mom Terri delivered Truffle on September 4 and stayed a little while while Truffle adjusted to her new environment.  Truffle hid a lot those first few days, but soon was following Mom Paula everywhere she went.  Mom Paula was a very nervous new mom that first month.  One thing is for sure: Mom Paula has been smiling every day since Truffle "gotcha'd" Mom Paula.
Doesn't Mom Paula look happy now?

  21. Happy First Gotcha Day, Truffle! I think you were the answer to your Mom's prayers.

    What a sweet little kitten you were, and you still don't look like you're very big. It's great to have that first picture to make a comparison every year. Mom still has a huge smile on her face -- and little wonder.

    Yes, that's what you are -- a little wonder.
