About Me

Active within 2007 Days

Hi! My name is Gopa

I am Domestic Shorthair from Philadelphia, PA

Nicknames: Gopa-girl, Gopalina, and The Gopster

Age: 10 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: While Gopa was feral for about a year and a half, she had four litters. Her first litter was born in March 2004, when she was approximately 10 months old. Unfortunately, those kittens froze to death as I was not able to find them in time. She then gave birth to her second litter on July 14, 2004. She gave birth to two on a rooftop in the pouring rain, which I found and took in. The next day, I tricked Gopa into showing me where the rest of her litter was and promptly took the other two kittens from my neighbor's yard. Gopa then went on to have her third litter in during the first week of October 2004, but I was never able to find that litter. 8 weeks later, I found what remained of the third litter, a little boy kitten, just on the verge of going completely feral. He was brought in and adopted. On January 1, 2005, I saw Gopa mating with her boyfriend, and when she was caught and brought in, she had her fourth and final litter on March 10, 2005. Gopa was a great mom to her third and fourth litter, and after her last litter left her, she became a foster mom to orphaned kittens that my Vet was taking care of. Gopa is happy and healthy and lives with her daughter Effelina (from the second litter) and her brother Pasha.

My favorite tricks and treats are: She runs as fast as her brother Pasha and Catnip

Where I hang out: On Mama Lisa's bed and on the cat condo.

My favorite grubs: Meow Mix hard food and Fancy Feast canned food.

My pet peeves: Being touched when she doesn't want to be touched.

What I love about my owners: I love my Mama Lisa because she loves me and takes care of me, even when I'm sometimes bad.

My cat hobbies: Playing with her toys, and playing with her daughter and brother.

Pet motto: Get your own toys!

How We Met

Gopa was born on May 1, 2003, to a domesticated cat, whose owner didn't want the mama cat or her 3 kittens in her house and promptly put them in the alleyway. The mama cat and her 3 kittens lived in the alleyway until I discovered the kittens when they were 4 months old and completely feral. I immediately fell in love with Gopa's brother Pasha, and a few months later, when Pasha was 8 months old, I took him in. I then took in the mama cat, but Gopa and her sister Tiny, wouldn't let me catch them. Finally, after weeks of trying, I finally captured Tiny in a cat-trap, but Gopa was ever elusive and extremely smart and extremely hard to get. It took until January 20, 2005, during a blizzard, for her to come to me and let me get her. She's been with me ever since.

Hello To Everyone!
Sorry I didn't say hello right away, I'm still a little shy and also my Mama Lisa was a little short on time. But here I am now, so hello to everyone. I see someone wants to know where my Mama Lisa got my name, my brother's name and my daughter's name; well, I'll tell you what Mama Lisa told me. Mama wanted to give me and my brother strong names, especially since we were feral cats before she took us in. A few days after she saw us and started feeding us, she named my entire family. My brother was named first, Pasha, and that name came from a book by Joy Adamson, entitled "The Queen of Shaba" and in the book Penny, the Queen of Shaba, had a son who was named Pasha. Only later did Mama find out that it means "High ranking officer; kingly". Then Mama named my cat mama Somba; then my sister Tiny; finally she got to me and came up with Gopa, which came from another book by Joy Adamson entitled "Living Free", and in the book the world famous lioness Elsa had a three babies that were named Jespah, Gopa and Little Elsa. The name Gopa means "timid", and I got my name. Mama Lisa said my daughter's name was originally Ethel, but said that my daughter didn't have her front incisors at the time and that my daughter lisped and when she said her name she said "Effel" instead. So my Mama started calling her Effel, then Effel wanted to be a ballerina, so my Mama said "Effelina The Ballerina", and that folks, is how we got our names. Sorry for the long post!

Come visit me, Gopa, Pasha, Chick ~In Loving Memory~ & Effelina.
