Throwback Thursday AND Thankful Thursday

I decided to combine Throwback Thursday and Thankful Thursday together today. The "throwback" part comes from the "baby" pictures that mom found from my "Gotcha Day." Mom went to an outdoor gathering for the Kentucky Humane Society to look for a dog and she came home with me! I was 8 weeks old and I had a runny eye and I kept sneezing! I was on an antibiotic for a couple of weeks and I was treated for fleas a few weeks later.

The "thankful" part is because I'm so thankful that I ended up with a great forever home with mom and all of my brothers and sisters. But for the first year I was in my home, I was the only cat.

My Gotcha Day anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks. These pictures are from August 27, 2000. Mom said she can hardly believe that I've been with her for 14 years.

 And this is what I look like now! Mom should have saved this picture for Whiskerhump Wednesday!


  1. Those are so, so cute! Happy Pre-Gotcha Day!

  2. Happy gotcha day, Clarissa! You are only a few weeks older than Binga - my human and her boyfriend got her out of the pound in late October, 2000 and she was just 8 weeks old. She was crazy then, and she is crazy now!

  3. Happy early Gotcha Day, Clarissa! What a cute little baby you were...and now you're a beautiful ladycat. :)

  4. That's a good Thursday combination. :)
