KC's 1st Gotcha Day!

A year ago today, 7/22, little KC boarded a Continental jet and made the long flight from LA to Houston.
It doesn't seem like a year, it seems like KC has been here forever.
Special thanks to Karen C & Deb for all their hard work getting KC cleared to travel.
And another thank you to QM Rose, who served as air traffic controller for KC's flight.
If you go to the archives for July 2006, you can scroll down for posts of the first seven days of KC's life here.

7/22/06 - KC snuggling with her Daddy Charley exactly one year ago.

[as soon as I can get Charley & KC to cooperate, will add a current picture of the "huge" KC today, snuggling on Charley]

Oh, Happy First Gotcha Day, KC. You were such a tiny, little kitty, and so precious. I remember your rescue and your plane trip to your forever home with mommy ML and daddy Charley. It's hard to believe a whole year has gone by already. You have had a very busy year and you have grown into such a beautiful cat. Have the happiest of days today.

Happy First Gotcha Day to my sweet KC! Your Mommy, Daddy,Sloane & I had so much fun waiting at the airport for you. The minute your Mommy saw you, she was in love! So were the rest of us. You were such a beautiful kitty and so tiny. Now you are a little bigger, but still so beautiful.

Much love to my "yellow-dot" vishus kitty-niece! Fierce KC!

Love, Auntie Deb

Happy Gotcha Day! Today we went to the same shelter you were in and got a 2 1/2 month old little girl kitten out for the Allergic Girl's friend. The Lady wore her KC Offishul Repurrter shirt and told the shelter employees all about how famous you are. One lady there was there last year and remembered you. She was very happy to hear that you're doing so well and that you've got a whole line of shirts and accessories with your picture on them. Purrrrrrrrs!
