Three years ago today I was adopted...

...although 'adopted' may not be the right word really. 'Enslaved', maybe? Regardless, however you look at it, it was three years ago today Scar 'inserted' Himself into my daily life. And basically I haven't had 5 consecutive minutes of peace and quiet since then, it seems. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration...but the 9 or 10 times I have had it, it was only because I suddenly noticed it was TOO quiet and found out he had escaped the lead. But it's been worth it...after all, if it wasn't for Him, I'd have to deal with you guys all the time. (Side note: tomorrow is the three year anniversary of myLot starting to pay me again...which is actually the same day I brought him home. He adopted me when I was out of town and came home with me the next day).

Happy 3rd anniversary of your adoption. I cannot exactly remember when my cat adopted me, it was in 2009, but I have not noted the day.

The only reason I can remember is because he adopted me when I was doing a sound gig out in the country at a friend's house for their birthday party

@myklj999 I see, you can relate it to an event. Mine was part of the alley cats that I was feeding in the garden. He entered in the house and stayed.

Naomi
I like his name. Scar. I was adopted by a black kitty back in September last year. She tries to be the ruler of the house. Unfortunately, there was Cupcake that was the Queen of the house. Naomi is my little mischievous kitty cat. I love her, though.

He picked the name up because he had a spot in front of one ear I thought wouldn't heal right

I think he was around 8 weeks old, maybe a little more, when he found me

Three years already? I suppose it's almost 3 years that I joined the site. I remember your post about how you found Scar when you were out of town. We are slaves of our cats, but we love to be slaves.

I must say, it didn't take him long to get you trained. But then, it never does take them long. The owner of my house had me at "woof," or as my dear mother of blessed memory used to say, "She stuck her head under my jacket and cold-nosed me right in the heart." Happy enslavement anniversary!
