Truffle's Gotcha Day

Two years ago today, Truffle came to live with Mom Paula.  Mom Paula was so nervous waiting for Truffle's arrival that day.  It'd been 15 years since Mom Paula had raised a kitten and she had forgotten all about what to do!

Truffle was such a tiny little thing when she arrived at our house.  She found every nook and cranny she could hide in those first few days.  Mom Paula was so afraid that Truffle didn't like her anymore because she hid so much.  This was Truffle's favorite hiding place under the TV stand in the back.

Mom Paula was so nervous about Truffle getting hurt or lost that she closed the doors to all of the rooms and slept on the couch the first week with Truffle.  Even though Truffle liked to hide during the day, that first night, she jumped on top of Mom Paula on the couch and slept with her.

It didn't take long for Truffle to feel totally comfortable with Mom Paula.  She's still a little shy with strangers, but she is the "queen bee" at our house.  We're so glad Truffle picked Mom Paula!
