TJ's birthday is officially September 4th, 2007. I adopted her around that time in 2008 at a local Petco. She's my rescue cat, since one of her back legs had been broken by her former family's dog and they gave her up instead of fixing her. I was there the Friday night when they were setting up and I was back there on Saturday morning to adopt her.
Interestingly enough, I met my first tattoo artist that day as well, since Laura Crow was buying dogfood for her (then puppy) at the time.
Life sure hasn't been the same since. I got her to keep Dacya company, and it's taken this long for them to just get along without fussing at each other all the time. I started to believe that would never happen. They aren't best friends even now, but there are times where they will cuddle up together. Usually after a move when they are unsure of anything except each other. I brought Dacya down first, and then went and got TJ, and they didn't like being separated at all that time.
Happy birthday, Thuvia Jane!
