Karen Jo: It wasn't that bad. You just got looked over, weighed and had your temperature taken.
Brody: That's the bad part.
Brody and Cissy: We love that. Now for our party. We birthday kits--Julius, Brody and Cissy have taken over the living room for our Rock'n'Roll party. We have the stereo turned up and Mom filled the dining room table with goodies for us. There's a turkey on one end and a ham on the other end and in the middle is a whole grilled salmon. We are serving meowgaritas now that we are old enough to drink them. We also have meow-tais and nip Russians. We can play endless games of THoE up and down the hall and play King of the Mountain on our new tower. There are gazillions of toys lying around and Mom has promised to work Da Bird until her arms give out.
Update from Julius: Mom says that since she was so late getting the notice up yesterday that we can party all day today (Friday), too. There is plenty of food and drink and we are rested up and ready to go!

Karen Jo: While I wasn't blogging, I missed special days for all my kitties, so we are having one huge party to make up for it.
Karen Jo: I will see what I can do. I will also show off the big gift that I got for all of you. It will be one big blow-out of a party, I promise you that.

Let me start at the beginning. I have always loved cats, but could never have one because my mother was extremely allergic to them. After my mother died, I decided to get the house the way I wanted it and get rid of the cat unfriendly stuff and get a cat. It didn't work out that way. I saw a poster with that face on it saying that Herman really needed a home, but he was FIV+ and FeLV+ so he had to be an inside only only cat. I went home and looked up the diseases and decided that I could live with the limitations and called to say I was interested in adopting him. First I had to pass an interview and meet Herman to see if he liked me. He did. His foster mother said that he had reacted more positively to me than he had to any one else who had come to see him. A few days later, Herman moved in and stole my heart completely.

Spyro: That was so cool. There was no way Mom could stop 5 of us from escaping. Mom always grabbed the kittens first, then Oja or Horus and me last, because I always go to the same place in the yard and stay there. Sometimes when she would catch the last kitty before me, I would walk in with her. Now none of us can get out, unless we manage to hide in the kitchen long enough for Mom to open the door.

Both: We're here today to tell you our gotcha story. We were abandoned, along with our calico sister by our feral mom when we were born or shortly thereafter. Somehow we ended up with a very nice vet lady who bottle fed us and raised us, even though all three of us tested FeLV+. She was sure that she could find a home for us. When we were ready to be adopted a lady whose elderly cat had just left for the Rainbow Bridge saw our calico sister and took her home. We lived at the vet hospital for eight months in a cage, though we occasionally got let out for some exercise and loving from the staff. The nice vet lady contacted Herman's foster mom, who told her about Karen Jo and Karen Jo came and got us the very next day. We feel really lucky. Our original names were Brother and Sister, but Karen Jo, who is now Mom to us, changed them.
Brody: I really like living here. I am already making friends with the other cats, though Rocio and Oja hiss at me.
Cissy: I am not at all sure about all the other cats. I hiss and growl at all of them. Oja and Rocio hiss back. When I get tired of trying to deal with them, I retreat to the safe room and sometimes Brody joins me there and we nap together.

Brody: Hi there! I'm Brody and I just moved in here with my sister, Cissy.
Karen Jo: I find myself pushed for time again. I'll let Brody and Cissy tell you their gotcha story tomorrow.
