Happy Gotcha Day, Moosh Moosh and Chili Pepper

Neither were planned adoptions.
And yet, it's hard to imagine life without them.
Chili Pepper, pictured above, was dropped off with her siblings in a shoe box at Petco while iDaddy and NTM were doing adoptions with other foster cats.
NTM took home the box of three tiny un-weaned kits as bottle babies.
Never planned to adopt any of the three, only foster them.
Only one of the three were adopted by others, and Sonora and Chili Pepper ended up staying in our home.  Sonora was adopted first, because she totally stole NTM's heart.  Chili went to several week's of adoption weekends at Petco, but was continually overlooked.  She and Sonora had bonded, and eventually iDaddy agreed to let NTM officially adopt Chili so that she didn't have to go back to Petco.
Meanwhile, at one adoption event, while breaking down the cages at the end of the afternoon, there turned out to be one more kitten than when we started.  Apparently, someone came in with a kitten and snuck it in to a cage while we were busy.  And left it.  No one else in the rescue group wanted a dropped-off kitten, so NTM took it home to foster.  We thought the little white and orange kitten was a girl at first, so the head of the rescue organization called her Angela.
Turns out when it came time to be fixed, Angela was an Angelo.
But iDaddy called this little lost kitten "Moosh Moosh" which means apricot in Arabic.  Moosh Moosh and iDaddy have a special bond, so the deal was if NTM got to adopt Chili, then iDaddy got to adopt Moosh Moosh.  So that's how these two cuties came to be part of our family back in 2013.
