Gotcha Day

Four years ago I won mum's heart and she brought me home. I was playful and outgoing with her, not hiding in the corner. So this is my Gotcha Day/My Derby Day. Thanks mum for giving me a wonderful furrever home.
My shelter mug shot, the one that shows me smiling, Smiley Boy, or Benny as I was known at the time. I may be a bit sassy at times, but I do love you. Purrs.

It is getting nicer and nicer every day. Mum comes home and opens more windows, we can listen to the birdies singing early in the day, into late in the day. The birdies are checking out our birdie houses to see if they are suitable for the summer. We saw a sparrow in this house on Wednesday AM.
This is Virginger checking out the house last spring, she hasn't been out to check for new occupants this spring. Plus mum hung out a nice sack of soft stuff for the birdies to help make their nests soft for the baby birdies who will be coming soon. Plus yesterday morning Mr Wren showed up. He is a furry small birdie with a huge voice.

Mum cooks outside more often too. Yesterday she made chick-hen and she shared with me. She bought a big package of chick-hen the other night and let it set overnight in sauce so it gets all extra nice and tasty.

Happy Gotcha Day, Derby!

I like your birdie house. My mum is disappointed because this year the birdies have scorned the two nest boxes we put up - last year they did use one of them. They are nesting in the shrubs though.
