Happy Gotcha Day, Melly!

Three years ago today I went to the Humane Society to meet Sally Dickens, who had captured my heart on Pitter Pats of Baby Cats.

Although the photos like this one were adorable...

...the ones like this are what got my attention:

Now here, I thought, is a kitten with spunk.

I had absolutely no idea what I was in for when I took the little imp home and renamed her Melly. The beginning was difficult--I'd never had a kitten that young before and my dear Scarlett was in utter hell--but after a while, we all adjusted.

Three years later, Melly is all grown up and still has the same precocious personality I first saw on Sue's blog. She is mischievous and silly and affectionate, and I am so glad we found each other.
