My First Gotcha Day

Kitties!  It's my very first Gotcha Day here in my own comfortable and loving home.  I am so happy to be here and I take excellent care of my mommy every day.  I send her off to bed, I get her up again, I run off introoders and I warm her back, front and lap every day.

I was chosen by The One Who Came Before, Angel Admiral.  I was brought in to Mom to see even while Admiral's tiny footprint which had been preserved for Mommy was brought to her to have.  That was the Admiral placing her approval so that Mom would see that I had been chosen for her to love and for ME to love her for Angel Admiral as well as myself.

Because we are still awfully busy here Mom and I have  just ordered a small bar set-up for efurrybuddy.  She said she would have noms for my birfday instead.  But I DO have a cake!

 Cheese Platter and some cheezy nachos.  Eat up!

I have stocked the bar for us so we can have a small pawty and I have strawberry milkshakes for the kittens.

 Hanks famous Bacon Beer.
 Dom Perignon champagne
Nip shakes and milk shakes for the kittens
 Famous Niptinis as well...
And strawberry smoothies.

Please come and help me celebrate  my Gotcha Day and the team that mommy and I make together.  We are made for one another.


  1. Woo-hoo! Am I FIRST?? Well, let me wish you the Best Gotch Day EVER, My Sweet Darling! You have been the most precious gift ever for your Mommy who was a really sad girl after the Admiral had to set sail. You made her soooooo happy again! And you got yourself like, the best furever home EVER! (Well, except maybe for Mr. Ginger--but even he provides some excitement!)

    I'll have a Niptini, please, shaken not stirred. Can I spend the night?

  2. Has it been a year already?! Happy first Gotcha Day sweet Katie!! My favorite memory of your first year is you bringing your mom gifts in the night, especially those cute mouses!! You keep up the good work.

I want to send you my card, but don't have your email address. mine is ms dot savannahcoolkat at gmail dot com Isn't it great both of us have January as our very first Gotcha Day!!! I read new posts on my iPad first thing in morning and the blogs with comments set up like yours don't work on iPad, when I get the to URL input and it says 'continue', iPad freezes. So then I forget to go back to ones I read and leave comments. Is there anyway you can set up comments like Katnip Lounge has, just a request. But purrlease send me your email address, pretty purrlease, paw pats, Savannah

  64. Oh Miss Katie....
    We are SO sorry we missed your pawty. Please oh please furgive us. It's all Waffles fault. He keeps distracting Glogirly trying to get her to say his new name. (NO!)
    We hope you had a super fun day!!! A 1st Gotcha day is VERY special.
    Katie TOK

  65. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty horde say, "Happy Gotcha Day!!

    Katie, you are the best cat ev-ah! We know that you are taking excellent care of your mom and it's a pity she doesn't understand toys left out for her.

  66. I'm sure you had a great Gotcha Day. I've neve heard that expression before, but it must be the day you came home or the day you were adopted, or both. We filled out the adoption papers for Gracie on Dec 10th, but she didn't go home with us until Dec. 12th, so we celebrate that day as the anniversary of her coming to live with us. It looks like you had lots of interesting stuff at the party! You and your Mom are lucky to have each other.

  67. Happy Belated Gotcha Day, gorgeous Katie Isabella!...We are so happy you found such a loving forever home and know you helped to heal your Mommy's heart in the process=we know beautiful Angel Admiral is watching over you both, sweetie...xoxo...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

  68. Oh, sweet Katie we are sorry to be late. Happy Gotcha Day sweet girl! Hugs and nose kisses
