Happy 9th Gotcha Day Coco Kitty

Nine years ago, we took in a stray Siamese kitten (abt 6 months) for a few days. One flutter of those baby blue eyes against the blue rug in the bathroom and we were goners. Three days later, she was jumping on the kitchen cabinets and kneeding the dogs backs to make her napping spot. […]
