Happy Gotcha Day, Carmine!


Dear Carmine,

I cannot believe it's been 13 years since you claimed me as your human as you sat in my lap in the PetSmart adoption center.  Little did I know then how much you would change my life.

Your crazy kitten antics have helped keep me sane during difficult times.  I love your loving, loyal spirit.  Your protectiveness of me and Lita helps me feel safe.  

Your loving heart is something that I admire.  Your love for Jewel was clear every time you supervised her sub-q fluid treatments and every time you poked your head into the kitty cubes to check on her.  Your love for Lita is apparent when you stay near her when she doesn't feel well.  I know she feels protected and loved by you, as she chooses to stick close to you when she feels very crummy.  Your love for me is apparent every night when you join me on my pillow for sleep, when you visit me to "help" me with my article writing, and when you watch over me when I'm not feeling well.  

You truly are one special mancat, and I m so blessed and grateful that you choose me, of all people, to be your human.  

We love you, Carmine, and hope you have many, many more Gotcha Days to celebrate with us!

Happy 13th Gotcha Day, Carmine! 

Love,
The Mom and Lita

  13. Happy gotcha day, Carmine! Perfect timing - my son is on his way to pick up an orange kitty that his cousin found. My first orange cat ever. Maybe we'll name him Carmine in your honor. Though I was thinking of Harry for the newly married ginger prince. I'll decide when I see him a bit later.
