Happy Gotcha Day Samson!

Happy Gotcha Day!
(C) from The Dog's Paw!

Two years ago Samson you came into our lives. I have to admit, my first thought was that I didn't want to adopt another cat especially since I will be the one who is home all day with it. But, Mom found you online and you looked to be a perfect fit for our family. I thought if we had to adopt a cat, you might be the perfect one for us.

I talked with Noah about the possibility of him having a cat brother again. After reading about you and looking at the pics, he thought you might be the perfect addition to our family too.

So Mom and I jumped in the car and drove to Annapolis, Maryland to see you! It was no short trip either... two hour drive each way! It was an interesting visit because we couldn't see you- except maybe a bit of your cute face while you hid from us. I can't say that I blame you at all! I would be scared too with all the changes in your life happening and all the strange humans coming by to look at you.  When we left, Mom prayed and hoped that we would get to adopt you. Little does she know, I did too.

Within a week or so, we got the news that you would be joining our family. Mom prepared you a place in a bedroom where you could feel safe and become acquainted with your new surroundings and life.

I thought it was really cool that we got to adopt you on "Father's Day!" This made the day become very special for me as I have another furry son!

It took you a while to come out of your room and explore the rest of the house. And, a bit longer to learn to love Mom but even longer to learn that I am a good guy and would never ever hurt you.

Now, you rule the house as if you have lived here forever!

Today, we celebrate your "Gotcha Day!" because Mom, Noah, and I are very happy we "GOTCHA!" and welcomed you home. Happy "Gotcha Day" Samson!

Happy Gotcha Day Samson!
