Bella's Gotcha Day

One year ago today we welcomed our darling little Bella into the house!

Mug shot - Bella being dramatic


You can read about how we got her by clicking HERE.

Bella is a diva and a bit of a snob, but we still love her and hope to have her with us for many, many more years!  We think that eventually she'll love us as much as she loves Mommy and The Ball Guy.

Our friends Sammy, Andy, Shelly and Judi made this fabulous graphic to help us celebrate the day.


Thank you so much, guys!  It's the perfect colour for our Bella!

We also have good news about the first leg of Gabriel's journey.  He is safely in Columbus with Scott and they will be leaving for Montreal on Wednesday morning.  Thank you all for your purrs!

You can read about Gabriel's transport on Chrystal's blog HERE

Happy Gotcha Day to beautiful little Bella.
She reminds me of our Faith Boomerang.
She is a diva also.
And she was very stand-offish the first year or so with us, now she is an absolute lap cat!!!!
And such great news about Gabriel's journey.
Love & Purrs,
Mom ML & KC

Happy gotcha day Bella.
You are one purrty kitty. I just love the look on your purrty little face. My Babybella gives me that look all the time. She too loves to be dramatic.
Come by and visit my Bella. I did my post about her today. I figured she needed her own post for a day.
