Happy 5th Gotcha Day, Cosmo and Ling!

On August 2, 2008, Mommy and Whisky found us in a drain while on their walk. Mommy thinks someone put us in a big plastic bag and threw us in the drain by the playground. She found us close to the bag with a chewed hole. We looked miserable as the weather was really hot and it didn't look like we could get out of the drain on our own. So she picked us up and brought us home
Ling : We were afraid of Mommy and Daddy for weeks and won't go near them. It took lots of patience to win our trust but Mommy and Daddy persevered! When I finally jumped on the bed to sleep with Mommy, she was so happy she almost cried!
Cosmo :  Here we are looking at the playground where we were found. And thankful that's all in the past and that we now have a safe home
Ling : I protect Mommy from any cockroaches that might try to sneak into the house
Cosmo : Mommy says my paws had better not let go of that spring or I'll be in for a rude surprise...but why?
Ling : I love it when Daddy squeezes my tummy! I'll always be Daddy's Little Girl!

HAPPY 5TH GOTCHA DAY, COSMO AND LING!

Oh my gosh... Oh my gosh... Your mommy and Whiskey were so very WONDERFUL to save your lives like that. So very, very wonderful. I'm so happy they found you.

HAPPY GOTCHA DAY! May your day be filled with love & cuddles and treats & nip. Lots & lots of the nip!

Again... SO VERY HAPPY YOU WERE RESCUED, five years ago.

Purrs,

Ling, Darling! Has Tutu been giving you Hussy Lessons???

The Human gotted all leaky reading about how you were found, but I said to her: Stop it! The story has a happy ending! It is a GOOD story about the Whisppy Mom, not a sad story about bad people. Right???
So she stopped her leaking. Mostly.

XOXOXOOXOX

Oui Oui said...

Happy Gotcha Day! Its terrible how people treat animals, like they are trash just to throw away, instead of intelligent, feeling beings. Thankfully your story had a happy ending! Here's to many more happy years, and to your mom and dad for being such great people. Because of the ignorance of someone, you found the best home ever. Purrs!

We are belated too but we wants to wish Cosmo and Ling a very Happy 5th Gotcha Day!

We really enjoyed hearing how you two came to live with your pawrents. That is similar to Georgia's story. We just don't understand how peoples can throw away sweet pets.
