    It's Sky's 7th Gotcha Day & 8th Birthday!!!(6/7/10)

    I can't believe that I've now had Sky with me for 7 years and he's now 8 years old. He's still a big kitten at heart and he's such a wonderful addition to my household. In case some of you haven't heard his story I'll tell it again.

    I was going to a cat show and I knew that the Humane Society would be there. I already had 3 other cats at home so I wasn't really looking for another cat or so I thought. I quickly looked at the cats up for adoption and they were all adults so I thought I was safe. Kittens really make my heart melt and are even harder for me to resist.

    During the lunch break, they allowed the Humane Society to take over one of the judging rings and they brought up each cat one by one and they told the cats story. When they brought Sky,known as Herman at the time, up he acted like he'd been doing this for years. He was very comfortable in front of everyone and seemed to have a wonderful personality. His fur was all shaved down into a lioncut and even his face was shaved so he looked like a little lamb. They said his fur was very matted so they had to shave him. Little did I know how handsome he would become.

    He had been found with some strays and had possibly been living with some ferals. When he was trapped, they realized that he wasn't feral at all so after he was treated for an URI and fleas, he was put up for adoption. I also found out later that another family had adopted him about a month before but they returned him because one of their cats started peeing inappropriately. When I saw Sky, I thought he looked like a very interesting cat and I was happy to see that a man seemed to very interested in him.

    Later on they announced that a cat had been adopted so I went to go see which cat is was. Sky was still there so it was the male Tuxedo that a woman had fallen in love with. They asked me if I wanted to hold Sky and that was all it took. I was in love. Between his gorgeous blue eyes and his wonderful playful, dog like personality I was hooked.

    They gave me a cardboard carrier to take him home in and he never cried at all in the car which was a first for me. Everyone at the cat show was thrilled to see him being adopted because he had become everyone's favorite. I immediately changed his name to Sky because of his gorgeous sky blue eyes and he really seems to love his name. I'm so glad that I adopted him that day.

    Here's how Sky looked when I adopted him.



    This is Sky when his fur finally grew back. This is also him at his fluffiest. He's never been this fluffy since.


    Here he is today.



    HAPPY 7th GOTCHA DAY & 8th BIRTHDAY SKY!!! I hope you have many more happy and healthy years ahead of you. I you Sky.

    Bless the Humane Society people for seeing how special you were, and taking such good care of you.

    You are a truly gorgeous kitty, and you were definitely meant to live in this furrever home of yours.
