Happy Gotcha Day Nigel!

Happy Gotcha Day to ME!
Happy Gotcha Day to ME!
Happy Gotcha Day me, uh Nigel!
Happy Gotcha Day to ME!
 
You know that I'm the happiest boy on the planet, right?  It was 4 years ago today that I walked into a trap on a snowy morning...and I thought I was going to die.  Really I did.
 
I was SO freaked out!
 
Of course now I know that the trap meant that I was coming inside a nice warm house for good.   I forgave my mom and dad for taking me to the vet and getting some things taken care of.  I never did fall for the "tutoring" story. 

 
My fur is all silky soft now.  My mom lovingly calls me her "Big Lug" and "Hunk 'o Mancat".   If you look closely at my pictures you can see cat food crumbs on my chin.  Ha!  That's me.  I can be a bit messy, but I'm still loved to pieces around here.  The food bowl is always full.
 
My favorite thing to do is to grind my nose into my mom's hand while she's trying to help us blog.   It's what I do best.
 
I hope you can stay awhile and help me celebrate!
 
If you are one of my new furriends or you missed my first Gotcha Day celebration, click the link and you can see me sing my "King of the Yard" song.
 
Grab a niptini and hang out for awhile with me, ok?

Happy Gotcha Day, Nigel! Having a warm home and an always filled bowl of food does kinda make the "tutoring" worthwhile.

Was it really 4 whole years ago that we met Bojangles?! What a wonderful 4 years it has been. You made the best choice of all time when you walked into that trap, buddy. Huge Gotcha Day smooches from all of us!

Hey, Nigel, and Happy Gotcha Day. We don't think we've met you before, but we are all adopted strays, so we know all about that scary first visit INSIDE.

Enjoy the day.

Teri's letting us visit a little bit today (she said it's a treat for us being so good for our Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day photo shoot today). We are happy we didn't miss your special day, Nigel! When Teri trapped TomTom, he probably thought he was gonna die, too...

He won't let Teri touch him, even now, so we are glad you saw the light and became a house kitty with shiny black furs and noms on your chin furs!

Meg & Quill said...
