GotchaBirthdays for Bennette and Ginger!

Happy GotchaBirthday to me!!!  Oh yeah and Ginger too!  But the reality is that Ginger arrived in 2007 "around" the end of September/beginning of October.

Me, I arrived in the yard in 2008 at the end of September, but I officially knocked on the door and let myself in on October 1st. 

Grete woofie was out of the house for 1 night for her first elbow surgery and when mom and dad were eating dinner they heard a knock on the front door screen.  They opened the door and there I was.  They opened the screen and I walked right in.  I haven't left since! 
So, about this blankie.  The hairy blankie.  Yes, Cory ordered it for her momma Ellie because the color of the yarn would look fabulous with Ellie's meezer fur.  But you know what?  I loved it so much...and being my birthday and all that, Ellie is letting me have it.  I'll let her use it from time to time...or she can share it with me.

Did I mention that I love it?

My sweet friends, thank you so much for all your kind words for Inigo. We've appreciated so much that you were willing to teleport over to help him feel better :)

Your kindness is so appreciated.

Happy GotchaBirthday Ginger and Bennette!!!! Bennette, we love how you decided you wanted to live there....mama had a kitty that came to her front door and kept climbing the screen door trying to get in....so, mama let her in and she never left either......until she had to go to the rainbow bridge.

Happy Gotchabirthday, Bennette and Ginger (oh, and of course your Mom too!)!! We think a hairy blankie made special by Peggy is the BEST way to celebrate any big event!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Happy Gotchabirthday Bennette and Ginger! That is a great story about your gotcha day Bennette! You were one smart cookie to knock on the door like that!!

And it was so sweet of Ellie to let you have that blankie - it is beautiful and looks so comfy! And it is so sweet of you to let her use it too!

And, oh, we agree with Fin - you may want to lay low a day or so after Ginger finds out you "hogged" the blog (which we really don't think you are, since you are not on as often as she is).

Bennette, that was a great story; you were a cheeky girl, just moved in without notice. Purrfect!

We wish you both many more happy years in your wonderful forever home!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Bennette, you're funny. You look very much like our Cameron and his story is a little different but he moved himself in one day too. Happy GotchaBirthday to you and to Ginger.

Happy GotchaBirthday Bennette and Ginger !
Have a great great day ! and I hope you get anything you wish

CCL Wendy said...

Happy Gotcha Day Bennette and Ginger! That sure is a lovely hairy blanket, Bennette. You look like you've settled in for the long term. It might be nice to share it with Ginger since it's her Gotcha Day, too.

I loved the story of how you arrived at your furever home, Bennette. At least you were polite enough to knock and that's probably why you were invited in. How lucky that you decided to live there! I guess you know a good thing when you see it -- hairy blankets and furever homes!!!

Hope you Gotcha Day kitties get lots of treats, nip and extra hugs and kisses.

Happy GotchaBirthday to Bennette and Ginger! Coal's GotchaBirthday was October 2nd. His mama-cat put him under my car and meowed until I came out to get him. He was only about a week old....so small I thought he was a MOLE!
