Gotcha Day Caturday Art

Happy Caturday! 

We are celebrating my 8th Gotcha Day! Mum and I rescued each other on the 21st of July 2011. She saw me on the Wood Green, The Animals Charity website and came to the London branch to adopt me straight away. We met on the Tuesday and it was love at first sight. Two days later, on Thursday 21st July, she came to collect me and the rest is history! 

Here are a few of our favourite photos from my kittenhood. This one was taken a month after my adoption and I was already getting big, and, as you can see, I was quickly happy to expose my lovely tabby tummy for belly rubs (only to Mum though).

Kissable tabby kitty tummy?

My beautiful tabby markings enhanced incredibly with SuperPhoto

I am still tiny here, and really enjoying my new home. Mum used Pixlr for this trippy effect. I am sitting inside a tipped over bucket which I loved to play with at the time. I even fell asleep in it sometimes!
Too much catnip?

Mum used PiZap to make this Gotcha Day graphic.

And here is the original photo of me looking like a crazy cat on Granny's old vintage clothes drying frame.
