Wayback Wednesday

You know what? This Friday is a big day for me. It's the one year anniversary of getting Mommy to let all of us kitties and Diamond join Catster AND it's the day I became Perfectly Parker. I have Mommy working on our Catster pages and something special for Friday. I hope you will come back and visit me! But today, I thought you might like to see the very first photo ever taken of me. Daddy took it in Southwest Kansas (click to biggify). I was visiting him for food, but I wouldn't let him near me yet. Oh, and as a extra added bonus, I was pregnant! Maybe someday, I'll tell you some more details about my life back then, but for right now, I just want you to see what a difference love makes.



That picture up above? That's what feral looks like.This photo, taken today, this is what love looks like.
'Nuff said.
OH! I need another favor please, Round 2 of Wozog's "Which Cat is Cuter" has started! Please go here and vote for me! I want to be able to donate any winnings to Churchill - I'm so worried for him and want to help with his vet bills! Simba is very, very cute, but I still think I have that certain "something"! Thank-you very much!

You look so skinny and frightened in your Feral picture. Love definately makes for a better life doesn't it!

Is Rudy giving your Mom the "talk to the back attitude" in that picture? Does he know about the poodle butt cut yet? Did you tell him? Are you taunting him? : )
