Happy Gotcha Day, JellyBean!

JellyBean Publishing - Mister's Garden

I have not done a blog post in a while as I have been so incredibly busy with JellyBean Publishing and Mister's Garden and the new children's book coming out in October.  Today has been a milestone, however.  It has been 17 years since I met my little JellyBean, huddled terrified in a cage in Petsmart.  I picked her up and she was hyperventilating from fear.  She was only about 12 weeks old at the time and I had no intention of adopting another cat.  I was only there to buy food for my other cats but she looked at me with those gorgeous light blue eyes and I melted.

Now today is 17 years later, and she still takes my breathe away.  She is my heart and soul.

The other day I found the pink collar she was wearing when I adopted her.  Her name was Dinah back then.  Not an appropriate name for such a cute little JellyBean.  I renamed her Sammie instead but then her name evolved into Sammie Jammie JellyBean, and eventually just JellyBean along with a whole slew of other endearing names I call her daily, as any loving cat mom can relate to.

JellyBean is ailing and not doing very well at all lately as some of you know.  She only weighs 5.4 lbs now from a lifetime weight of 7 lbs.  I cherish every moment with her and love her so much.  

That's all for today.  Just wanted to wish my little JellyBean a happy Gotcha Day and tell her I love her.  Don't ever let anyone tell you it is just a cat.
