Shelly's 3 MONTH Gotcha Day!!!!

I came in outta the feral world exactly three months ago today....and I love it indoors.  Here's a video of me taken on our 2nd floor balcony four days before I came in the house and stayed!!!!!!!  That's the sisterbean talking on the video, and mama faintly in the background.



Our friends will remember that I came to the balcony off the roof.....and walked across that narrow picket fence to get down onto the balcony for food and water.  Mama slowly tamed me, and we're both proud to say it only took 3 months!!!!!!!!

The boys still haven't totally accepted me, but it is getting better, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being an indoor kitty.  I never make any effort to go outside....not even on the balcony....you could say, I had enough of the outdoors during my feral life!!!!!!  I love my mama so much and am so thankful she took the time to tame me.

Love and Purrs,

Shelly

Hi, Shelly! We watched your video and you are the sweetest cat, ever. I'm so glad you found a home where you could be loved and be safe. As far as the brofurs are concerned, they'll be spoiling you before you know it!

Happy Sunday, dear!

Happy Gotcha Day, Shelly! We're always glad to see a tortie get a good home.
Cupcake makes no effort to go out, either. She likes to look out of different windows, but her new favorite spot is in her kitty bed in Grandma's room. No cold there!
Have a wonderful day!
Toby, Cupcake and Kate
