My husband, the world's best cat and dog father, found a little white kitten up a tree in our yard. After a few days walking around the neighborhood knocking on doors and calling the local shelters and vets offices with no results we decided to keep him.
Thus Spot, named after Lt. Comander Data's cat on Star Trek the next generation, became our 4th cat. (It's good he was named after Data's spot and not the spots on his head because those faded to white over time.)
Of course all our pets are equally special but I think Spot has the best "gotcha" story, after all he found us! I'm so glad he did because Spot is a wonderful cat. He's very comfortable hanging out with our dogs, as the video below demonstrates:
and he even gets on OK with our older, crankier cats, Baby, Scooter and Ernie who are 15, 14, and 12. They all spend alot of time on the dining room table, which is not a table for eating on but rather an area where we keep cat toys and food and water so the felines have a dog free space.

(To be entirely truthful there are occasional cat spats but then that has always been the case)
We celebrated Spot's one year anniversary with us with a tuna fish cake:
Spot had a typical finicky feline reaction to the cake, he could have cared less! Despite the fact that in the past he has seemed to like Tuna. Luckily his older brother Scooter seemed to like it.
For his gift Spot got a Catit wellness grooming center, we have a lot of catit toys and I really like them,
I think his favorite part was the box it came in:
Ernie however seems to love the grooming center:
At least Spot enjoyed his other toy, his catnip Little Red Riding Hood
Happy Gotcha day Spot!
