Monsterizing Day and More

SURPRISE!!!

It’s my 16th Gotcha Day!

OK – the fact of the matter is that I don’t  celebrate my Gotcha Day every year…………..I’ve been here for so many years and have been so very happy and I do so many other “celebrations” all year long that my Gotcha just hasn’t been something I “crow” about.   However, I thought maybe since it’s been SIXTEEN years since I was adopted from the shelter, I would have just a little party.  No biggie – a few snackables and some cake – and share it with all of you – my good buddies and friends.     So – ready???

SEEE????  No big deal………just a little snack here and there – no fuss, no muss.  Before I turn it over to the Vacuum Cleaner (since today is housecleaning day here) I just want to thank you all for being part of my SIXTEENTH Gotcha Day celebration………..you’re the BESTEST BUDDIES EVER!  

SPECIAL THANKS TO MY MOM AND DAD FOR VISITING THE SHELTER SIXTEEN YEARS AGO !!

  1. Happy Gotcha Day! Your purrs for Edgar have certainly helped. He came home two days ago as the vet was worried he would get depressed. He started drinking yesterday which is a huge step but we can’t get him to eat 😦

    • Oh Miss Annie…..I do hope that now Edgar is home he will perk up and begin to eat AND drink……we’re still sending lots of POTP for him. Thanks for coming to the Gotcha too!

  10. Sammy you sure know how to throw a “little party” MOL. I feel like Garfield fur sure. It is so great we both work hard to keep our toesies nice soft and clean. Some of my family, ahem, seem to have a problem with my toe-attention but I know we are kindred kitties and that makes it all alright. Love you big fellow. Enjoy many more with you dear pawrents and we your friends
