Tortie Tuesday

Mommy found and scanned some photos of me a few days after I arrived here at my forever home. I told her NOT to publish these photos because 1.) The quality of the pictures is terrible and 2.) I was undernourished and my fur was 'ratty'.



Mommy reassured me that, just because I had a rough start, I would not ruin my image as a tough tortie. Instead it would be more like a success story of how far I've come from then. This was acceptable to me, although the quality of the pictures is still awful!



I was about 3 months old when these shots were taken and I was full of fleas and very hungry. I figured out pretty quickly that this place was perfect, though. I made myself at home right away.



Mommy thinks I was a cutie, but I'm just happy I grew out of that phase and turned into the strong, fluffy tortie I am now!

You were a little kitten! We all looked rough when we first started out.

Karen Jo said...

I think the pictures should enhance your reputation as a tough tortie. No little wuss could come through that and look as good as you do now.

Awwwww....don't worry, Deli, even though you were a cutie patootie baby kitteh, we know you're a rough-and-tough tortie now! We'd never dare say otherwise. ;)

I think you were very cute, too, Deli -- and now you are beautiful!
You can really see all the different colours in your fur when it was not quite as floofy! You've got a lot more orange in there than I thought!

Such a gorgeous girl, now and then!

You poor dear. But you did really feel right at home, judging from the pictures. No wonder you grew up to be such a wonderful cat.

Listen to your mom, these were great baby photos of you. What a little cutie you were and now you are a beautiful cutie. A lot of us has a rough start and we can certainly thank our moms and dads for taking such good care and good health to return.
