My Gotcha Day is here again!

Wow! It is my 6th Gotcha Day! Hard to believe that six years ago, I wandered into this yard and wandered into my forever home. Do you know how many yards I was in before I found the right one? But that day was perfect. The sun was shining, it was warm. The moms were getting ready to go out for a late lunch and a trip to the casino, but first they were coming up to the garden to pick parsley for grammy. There I was! Cute as a button! Friendly! They scooped me right up and squealed with delight! They had to leave so they brought me in the house. Showed me some food and a litter box and left me with Rusty and Mrs Murphy. Not much of introduction...just hey guys, look, here's your new brother....and away they went. They were gone for a few hours and when they came back I was peacefully napping on the recliner.

Despite this non-textbook way of introducing cats, it worked out okay. I got along fine with Rusty and still do. Mrs M was a little afraid of me, but she came to learn that she can trust me. I have never, ever teased her or chased her; in fact, I sometimes step in between if I think someone is bothering her. She even shares her crunchies with me!

I certainly found the right house. I don't mind having so many brothers and sisters. I loved when they were kittens! The Moms take great care of me, even taking me to a heart specialist. I know I am an expense, but Mom says I'm worth it. I get lovies all the time, good food, treats, shoe laces to play with. Life is Good! Plus I have you! My friends! You make a good life even better. Thanks for celebrating with me today!

Life is Good!

Hi Skylar buddy!

I know just how you feel. I was lucky enough to be born into the right yard, too. And I pretty much just came in and acted like I owned the place. You are lucky to have a great family. You have brothers and sisters to play with, and your moms take good care of you! I hope you have many more gotcha days ahead!

Your guardian angel,

P.S. I want to add you to my page as soon as my Mommy can figure out how!

Oh, Skyster - of course you would fit right in! Couldn't be otherwise for such a treasure as you. Happy Gotcha Day, dear! You're making me nostalgic - didn't know our Gotcha Days were so close.
