Brulee's 1st Gotcha Day

One year ago today, Brulee came to live with us.  Truffle had been an only kitty living with Mom Paula for two months when Brulee arrived.  Mom Terri hand delivered Brulee to our front door and helped introduce Brulee to Truffle.  Truffle hissed a little that first day and was determined to let Brulee know who was boss.  Brulee never showed any fear!  Truffle would "attack" her, then Mom Paula would pull Truffle away, but Brulee would jump right back up and go play with Truffle again.   It had only been 6 months since Mom Paula had helped Sweet Praline to the bridge and this was the first time Mom Paula had ever had more than one pet at a time and she was very nervous as she was also still a new kitty mom to Truffle (September 2011). Mom Paula slept on the couch in the living room the first couple of nights to make sure Truffle and Brulee were okay together.  It was just a couple of days before the two of them were playing and sleeping together.

A special thank you to Ann for the Gotcha Day graphics!

We thought we'd share a few pictures of Brulee on her Gotcha Day in 2011.

We're so happy that we "gotcha" Brulee!  Life has been so interesting and fun since you arrived last November.
