ManCat Monday - Gotcha Day

This is my second anniversary of my Gotcha Day. Two years ago, May 7 was on a Saturday, the first Saturday of May when mum brought me home. WooHoo. Thanks mum for giving me such a wonderful furrever home. I know I get a bit sassy at times when we play, but I do love you.

Plus I am Kat's Cat of the Day. Mum arranged it especially for today. Thanks that is a nice purresent. But what did you get me to play with? More treats?
This is my mug shot from the shelter and the picture that Patches Lady always uses to refer to me as Smiley Boy. Even though I was in the shelter I was happy that I was in a safe place and would be placed with a nice person for my second home. If you want to read my gotcha story, then go back one year. I had several posts starting with April 15, 2006 on what happened to bring me to my now furrever home.

Happy 2nd Gotcha Day Derb! Love this "smiley" picture! Nice FB's(whisker pouches) too!

Sorry about the FB link too! For whatever reason, Blogger won't put the right link in. It deletes my link for KatSpeak and puts in Blogger.com! Weird! Oh well, visit KatSpeak under my special links for a definition of FB's. Have a great Gotcha day!
