Our "Gotcha Day"!

Wednesday, June 6, was Grace and boys' GOTCHA DAY! We went back into the blogs to look at their photos from a year ago here and here and here. What fun, and what chaos for the first couple of weeks or so. Ruse wouldn't eat, so Austen was feeding him by hand until he got the hang of eating from the tiny dish as Audace was doing. Grace went in for "the surgery" and we tried to follow doctor's orders by keeping her separated from the babies so they wouldn't try to nurse -- and we finally gave that up! Here are their most recent photos in their favorite places and positions!!


Notice the torque!


We celebrated by getting a new scratcher and new catnip, and -- wow! -- have they been wound up and all over the place the last couple of days!

PS -- We've been so busy with all of Parker's baseball games lately (see Writeacher's Thoughts), that it took me a couple of days to get this post up!!

Happy Gotcha Day. This is extra special, since Deb was so adamant about keeping the two brothers together. And look how great it worked out.
Aren't they all three just gorgeous. You can tell, they love their home.

Thanks to everyone for their good wishes. The kitties' Gotcha Day is more important to me than their birthdays! And I have my eye on yet another new toy to keep them all busy and active. Can't have them running to fat, you know!! LOL =)

Oh no we missed your gotcha day!!! Our pooter has been acting up(we think it is more AOL than the computer) and so we haven't been doing so much visiting. Hope you all had a great day.
