Truffle's 3rd Gotcha Day

It's Truffle's 3rd Gotcha Day today.  Mom Paula remembers how nervous she was waiting for Truffle to come live with her.  It had been more than 16 years since she'd had a kitten and it had only been only a few short months since Sweet Praline went to the bridge.

Truffle gotcha'd Mom Paula's heart from the very first moment she saw those glamour shots that Mom Terri sent her.  Here are just a few:
Week 3
Week 4
Week 5

When Mom Paula went down to Mt. Pleasant to visit the cattery with 5-6 different floofy Silver Shady Persians, Truffle was the one to come up to Mom Paula and fall immediately asleep in her arms.  Mom Paula knew then that Truffle had chosen her because it was the exact same thing Sweet Praline had done 16 years earlier.
Truffle totally relaxed in Mom Paula's arms at her first visit (6 weeks)

Mom Terri agreed to bring Truffle all the way to Columbia to deliver her to her new home.  Both Mom Paula and Mom Terri cried when they opened the door.  They knew that Truffle had found her wonderful new forever home and that Mom Paula was a great catch!

Truffle still claims Mom Paula as her own and only allows Brulee time when she thinks it's okay, but Truffle would prefer that all of their time were together.
Quiet times together

  3. Happy gotcha day, Truffle! When my human brought me home, she hadn't had a kitten around in nearly 12 years! But I made it easy for her because I'm pretty calm and only get in a little trouble.
