A Lap Cat Emerges, and a Special Day :)

This is our beautiful and much-loved friend, Sioux. She's always been a sweet kitty, but had always been a little leery of the humans at the shelter.


Well, there's not much that makes us happier than when a timid cat "turns a corner," and begins to learn that she is safe and loved.  It's pretty obvious that Sioux has started turning that corner.  Check her out last weekend, when she decided that Tracey's lap looked very inviting:


And here she is, getting mighty comfortable in one of the wall-mounted cat cups (sorry the picture is so fuzzy; she started moving as I took the picture with my cell phone camera):


Sioux is about 3.5 years old, spayed, micro-chipped and current on her vaccinations. She is negative for FIV and FeLV. And as you can see, she's ready to give and receive love from whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. Won't you consider being her forever best friend?
=======
As for that special day we referenced in the title ... today, July 21st, is our Angel Sammy's Gotcha Day at the Rainbow Bridge.


Happy Gotcha Day, Dootie!


We love and miss you every day, and bet they're having a big ol' party there to celebrate the special day that you came to live with us, filling our house with love and laughter. :)

Love from Mom Tracey, Dad Kevin (meowmeowmans), Moosey, Gracie and Zoe

I remember when Sioux lived in a carpeted tube, and we thought she'd never come out... The power of volunteer love has done it again!
Wishing you happy memories on this bitter sweet Gotcha Day.

Gotcha Days always warm the heart with wonderful memories, we are sure Sammy celebrated his amazing ggod life and fortune. It IS also a very special time when you see the moment come that a rescue decides to trust. Nothing makes what we do more worthwhile than to witness the healing.
