Photo Hunt - Funny and Gotcha Day!

Update:  Would you believe Mom forgot my Gotcha Day today???  It's been 15 years on the same day!  How could she do it?  I've been very blessed to be with my mom for 15 years today.  I was 12 weeks old when I came to live with my mom.  She was going through a divorce after 21 years of marriage and was very lonely and needed a companion - which was me!  I must say that we've spoiled each other and made each other laugh.  I don't know how many more years we will have together (after all, I am a senior ladycat), but I will treasure every moment with my mom.  The picture below is the first picture of me when mom brought me home all those years ago.


Mom Paula:  I have leaky eyes while I am writing this.  It would take a book to tell everyone what Sweet Praline did for me those 15 years ago.  She was literally my life in those early days because she gave me a reason to get out of bed every morning and always did something to help me laugh.  I can tell that my precious ladycat is slowing down (sleeping more, not as limber jumping on the couch, and floof isn't groomed as well) and I will treasure every day I have with her.  Thank you to all of the CBers out there.



Today's Photo Hunt theme is "funny".  I don't usually let mom post pictures of me where I don't look my best, but she has this picture from me from my adolescent days over 14 years ago.  I guess you could call this funny.


How about this one?

You can tell these are older pictures from pre-digital days!  I hope I made your day a little brighter and brought some laughter into your life.

It's hard for you to be funny, Praline, when you are so beautiful! Happy Gotcha Day too!!

AFSS said...

Well the first one looks like you are starring in a cartoon. But we thinks your beauty and charm shows even when you are caught in funny positions.

AFSS said...

Happy Gotcha Day, we can't believe your Mom forgot but don't feel bad our Mom forgot youngest boy bean's birthday one year and she gave birth to him, MOL. Don't worry she was reminded in time to get him an extra present for his birthday Dec 19th.

Sammy and Andy said...

Happy, happy, happy Gotcha Day, gorgeous and sweet Praline. We are purraying you and your mama will have many more together.

Our mama could so relate to how you helped your mama get through those rough times.....Sammy helped mama get through a divorce after 32 years of marriage.

We love both of you very much....have a wonderful weekend.

KarenMcG said...

Sweet Praline,

It sounds like you were "just what the doctor" ordered for your mom, and for you, too, all those years ago. What a cute baby you were.

We're glad you found each other at just the right time.

And funny shots is right! Talk about being "candid"! Some days, ladyhood can go out the window...it's not always necessary to "sit just right"!

We wish you and your mom, Paula, at least 15 more special years together!

Laila and Minchie said...

Happy Gotcha Day Praline! As we grow older, so do our moms, so guess we have to cut them some slack when it comes to remembering things. MOL!

Just remember, our Himmie sister, Cerise, lived to the ripe ol' age of 17 1/2 and she had health issues and was the vet's "Miracle Kitty" as she was a feline heartworm survivor. You Himmies are a very tough lot!
