Happy 5th Gotcha Day, Spunky Doodle!

Today is Spunky's 5th "Gotcha" Day. That 5 years went by quickly and she grew pretty fast. I still remember when I could pick her up in one hand with no problem. Now she weighs in at 13 lbs. and doesn't usually want to be picked up. She's still a black beauty though and such a cutey. She wanted to be friends with our first cat, Moe, when we first got her and then quickly made friends with Manny when we brought him in. Now she has welcomed Abby into our family as well. She came around pretty quickly to accept her as a new addition to our family. Spunky is not as active as she was as a kitten, but has become very good at starring in videos and still seems to like her picture taken. I love how she'll sleep on the bed with me close by enough for me to pet her on and off during the night. I am so glad I brought her in as a kitten from being born feral at my dad's in May of 2004.

The one sure way to get her to come is to open up those Tuna Flakes. They are flakes that you just sprinkle on top of her food. She loves it and always comes right away as soon as I put some out for her. Manny, however, doesn't care for them at all. Read about Spunky's perspective at her blog at Zemek's Updates.

(I'll share my things I learned this week tomorrow.)
