My Derby Gotcha Day

My actual Gotcha Day, May 7, is falling on the actual Derby Day, the first Caturday of May, just like it did six years ago I came to live with mum. Wow, time has passed so quickly.
I am so happy for mum giving me a furrever home, all of my furiends that I have made over the past 6 years and yes, for having the runt around to keep me company.
First a big bunch of roses, please make sure you take one home as a souvenir.
Traditional Nip Juleps to drink. Water, toona juice and milk available for the younger set.
Since Kentucky is considered part of the south, southern fried chick-hen and some ham and biscuits.
If you need anything, please ask the waiters, dressed up and tooting their horns! Call to the post.
The buffet table looks great! Let's visit and watch the horsies run around the track.

WINNER - ANIMAL KINGDOM!

That seems like a good pick for us kitties! Earlier in the day an early race had a horsie called Sassy Image. Mum said that would be a good pick, and the longest odds on the board. She won! We usually don't have any luck picking race winners.

P.S. Happy Mum's Day on Sunday to our mum and all the other mums!

Happy Gotcha Day, Derby! It must be great to have your Gotcha Day and Derby Day on the same day again. Thanks for inviting us to the party. We will certainly make the most of the buffet. Just make sure that Emma doesn't get into the nip juleps. She is hyper enough already.

Wondering if I could hang out for the day and watch the derby with you all? The folks have dumped me for the day and I am wanting to teleport out and have some fun.
