Happy 2nd Gotcha Day, Sweet Sukki

Sukki's Gotcha Story

Back story: I was owned for 20 years by Nikki, a Seal Point Siamese, who passed away in September 2004; I wanted to wake up to that face again, but decided to get 2 kitties to create a different dynamic within my house...I searched the internet and found a wonderful Arizona cattery, Siam Moon, where I got Calle and Halle, who were 3 months old, in January 2005; they were a Christmas gift from my parents.

I became email friends with Stephanie, the woman who owns the Arizona cattery and in April 2008, she wrote to me about needing to place some kitties and she wanted me to take Suki, a Balinese; I turned her down because 2 kitties in my house was plenty after living with just 1 for 20 years and I had Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat outside as well...Steph said Suki was a special 1 year old who recently had her first litter of kittens but was not a good mother because she was a kitten at heart herself; Suki needed someone who would give her lots of attention and loving...I thought about it for a few days and told Steph if she couldn't find anyone else, I would take Suki; she told me she knew in her heart Suki belonged with me, so I listened "to the universe", let go of my hesitations and I went to Dallas on June 28, 2008 with my parents to pick her up from the airport (it took a few months because she had to nurse her babies)...Within minutes of picking Suki up, she reminded me so much of my Nikki=she was extremely loving and immediately felt like MY baby, she curled up in my lap, purring for the drive home!...On the drive home from the airport, after looking at her registered papers, I realized Suki is a full biological sister to Calle and Halle!...Her name was Suki, but I added the extra K to make her name 5 letters with double consonants like my other girls (even Nikki!...Mommy/Daddy too!)...Sukki follows me everywhere and is the most lovable, social cat I have ever had=she was such a wonderful gift and I can't imagine my home without her!...and somehow, I think my Nik brought her to me.

*****Thank you to Ann at Zoolatry for the cute photo!

In April, I posted a photo of my girls at the back screen door with Calle and Sukki waving at the camera to their friends; Halle, my independent girl, was a holdout...So today, Halle waited until her sisters weren't looking, so she would be the only one waving to her friends!
Calle, Halle and Sukki in much better focus...

Calle, Halle and Sukki hope all their friends have a fun weekend doing whatever makes you happy!

Mancat Monday

When I took the stray kitty to be neutered, the vet's office named him Tom and I'm thinking I might stick with that name...Tom only comes by 1-2 times a week, so I believe he actually has a home or he's possibly a neighborhood cat that stops by different houses for food and company as he pleases...Whatever his situation, we love seeing him and he is extended family to us!

Thankful Thursday

Another thankful day for the awards our kind blog friends have given us lately...We are so honored you guys thought of us and very grateful for the wonderful friendships we have made in the last 5 months.

I was given the Honest Scrap award by my fun, upbeat friend at Lazaro Cooks!...Lazaro made up his own rules and posted 5 random things about himself, so I will do the same...
  1. I am a Private Investigator.
  2. I keep cat food and dog food in my car to feed homeless animals.
  3. I believe in smiling at strangers and showing kindness to others as much as possible.
  4. I am a Libra, born on October 13, so I consider 13 my lucky number.
  5. I love to travel and my favorite vacation spot in the United States is Hawaii, I've been there 5 times; I've also been to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, England, Mexico and a few islands in the Caribbean.

I was given the Life Is Good Award from my sweet friends at Sherkhan's Meowsings, Kat's Kats and A Wizard And An Angel...I posted this award a few weeks ago on May 27 and you can read my answers here, but I wanted to acknowledge and thank my lovely friends for this wonderful honor.

The Versatile Blogger Award was given to us by a number of great friends as well: Sammy and Andy's Meowsville, Danielle at The Life Of A Spoiled Cat, Spot And Fiona and Gotchi-O-Gato...You are supposed to share 9 things about yourself and pass it on to 9 blogs you think are fantastic.
  1. My 3 girls are biological sisters, all born in Arizona; Calle and Halle arrived here at 13 weeks old and Sukki came to live with us when she was 16 months old.

  2. Daddy Cat was born in my garage and I don't know about Mommy Cat; she was found asleep in my garage when she was around 8 weeks old.

  3. Calle and Halle have never given birth, but Sukki was a Mommy to 1 litter of kittens before she arrived here.

  4. Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat had 1 litter of kittens together in my garage on May 13, 2001.

  5. Calle and Halle have both had teeth pulled, but Sukki has not.

  6. Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat have never had teeth pulled.

  7. Calle and Halle were Christmas gifts from my parents; Sukki's first Mom needed to find a home for her and asked me to take her, which turned out to be a wonderful gift as well.

  8. Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat choose to be here, so they kind of adopted me, when they decided to make the garage their home 10 years ago.

  9. All of my cats are loving, affectionate babies and they all really enjoy being together.

Sticking with the photo theme from last weeks awards, these are variations of those images depicting how much my babies enjoy each other and genuinely like to hang out together...

As we stated before, we are cats and we play by our own rules, so, once again, we want our blogging friends to pick an award they would like and accept it from us with love and friendship.

Yin And Yang

Balinese Calle and Siamese Halle are litter mates; they are very close, but also very different, not only physically, but in temperament as well...They are both extremely affectionate cats, but Calle is gentle and accommodating, while Halle is independent with cattitude!
