The Story of a JellyBean!

Mom forgot my Gotcha Day, and it was a very important Gotcha Day Anniversary. 
 
 At first I was upset that mom forgot, but then I forgave her.
 
 Here is the story of me, a JellyBean.

 I started out life as "Dinah".  I was found as a baby all alone by some nice people from Texas Cares Cat Rescue organization.
 As you can see, back then, I was already very beautiful!   
**(CocoBean, snickering in the background)**

 
I was looking for a forever home at Petsmart, when mom came in to buy food for my now Angel sisters.  Mom almost walked by, but suddenly our eyes met.  Mom asked if she could hold me for just a moment.
I climbed into mom's arms and I was shaking uncontrollably and hyperventilating from fear.

 
But then, mom whispered in my ear, and told me everything was going to be ok now, and I will never ever be scared again.

Mom went to Petsmart on 8/13/00 to buy food, but she came home with a JellyBean!  

 
Thank you for adopting me and taking such good care of me for 10 years and 3 days, mom!   You are the best mom a JellyBean could ever have.
Oh, and thank you for renaming me JellyBean too!

Happy Gotcha Day, JB!!!! Oh my goodness, I cannot believe how gorgeous and what a cutie pie you are and were when you was a baby. I wish I had known you when you was a baby kitty. Mom thinks she is going to load her horse tonight and go riding again. I sure hope she knows what she is doing. For some reason the woman is becoming daring again. I have to watch the kids. Are you ready to go on an adventure again? I sure hope we can go someday cuz these dino's and jiggers are driving me hairy.

hi JB! that was a nice story about how your mom gotcha! you were a very cutie little kitty cat. that's so sad that you were scared and shaking when your mom picked you up for the first time. it's a good thing that she had you come home with her so you didn't have to be scardey anymore.
