Happy Gotcha Day Nigel!


Hi there!  Happy Gotcha Day to me!!!!!  It was 3 years ago today that I was trapped in my very own backyard and brought inside to live the good life.  At the time I was freaked out about the whole thing...but you know what?

It was cold and snowy on the morning I was trapped.  I was ill too.  I really don't know how much longer I would have made it on my own.


And you know what?  I haven't stepped a paw outside since that day.  I won't even go near a door.  If I wander too close to a door, I run away fast.   Sometimes I like looking out the windows, but I much prefer the view on the inside.

I think I'm the luckiest cat in the world!

So stay awhile and have some fresh baby nip, play a bit and nap if you like.  I just want to spend the day enjoying my furriends and family and appreciating all that I have.

Happy Gotcha Day, Nigel! We're so glad you were gotcha'd, even against your will. You certainly can't be blamed for not wanting to go outside again after the trauma you experienced.

You're a smart boy -- you know what side your bread is buttered on! You couldn't have found a better furever home.

Here's to many more healthy and happy years ahead!

Happy Gotcha Day Nigel,from all of us.

(special message from Artemisia) I know what you mean about not going out. Until I realized that they would let me back inside whenever I wanted I didn't put a paw outside once I was rescued and came to live here. I still don't go outside if I thinks Mommy might go somewhere and will be unavailable to open the door for me.

I know what you mean about not wanting to go outside. I wasn't trapped, I just moved in, and inside is safer than outside.

Oh no! I missed your Gotcha Day, Nigel! I hope it was SPECTACULAR, man. Can I drop over for just a minute for a little nosetap and a leaf or two of the nip? I won't overstay my welcome, though I *would* like to take a quick nap with Cory while I'm there.
