My Gotcha Day!

Hello efurryone!

It is a day late, since we were having SOO much fun, but March 1st was my very first Gotcha day!
I can't believe that it has already been one whole year since Mommy got me! Mommy noticed that the cat blogosphere accidentally called me Victor, but that's okay! The well wishes were great just the same!

It has been one very interesting year indeed! I met lots of foster kitties: Moxy, Lexy, Lucy, and then Samson came, but of course, he stayed! And Lexy is still here too! Otherwise, all the foster kitties got wonderful homes, now we are just waiting for Lexy to find hers! And she probably will on April 3rd, when there is an adopt-a-thon!

This year I went with Mommy to her parents house for 10 days, and got to live with a fun doggy when Mommy had her operation, and I made it through a VERY hot summer with no air conditioning!
In the fall, I got to see my old friend Hobbes again for a few weeks, and then I got to welcome Samson into our lives, and convinced Mommy to let him stay! So I got a new brother who I love, and lived through Mommy's old roommate apparently going crazy, and through this new roommate who is actually leaving on the 15th (more on that in another post). What a year! Oh! And I started this blog of course!

Well, for my Gotcha day, I started it off at midnight, when Mommy went and found me where I was napping, and picked me up and danced around with me and told me it was now officially my Gotcha day! I was so happy! I cuddled with Mommy all night, well, except for a few potty breaks, and a break to play THoE with all the other kitties.

When Mommy woke up, she had set her alarm early so that we could have extra cuddle time, since right when she wakes up is my very favorite time to snuggle. Cammy loves that time for cuddles too, and so does Sam, so we all got lots of love, but especially me! Mommy had to go to work sadly, and on Mondays she works until 9pm, so there was a loooong day of playing, napping in the sunshine, and of course, many many games of THoE! It is one of our very favorite games, and now its even more fun with all five of us!
I really like Cammy, she is so much fun! She is young like Samson, they are about the same age, and are very similar! Even their names rhyme!

Anyways, Mommy FINALLY got home from work, and gave us some cat nips, and brushed us, and played laser dot, and threw toys for us to chase. She also fished a bunch of toys out from under the couch, so new things to play with! We got yummy treaties too! Then at night, we all went to bed, and cuddled together. It was a nice end to a nice day!

Mommy wasn't able to get to the petstore to get me a present, but I DID just get the Fling-ama-string just a few weeks ago. Even though SAM broked it! He pulled half the string off! And we already went through two sets of batteries on it too hehe. I think Mommy got tired of us begging her to turn it on a 3am, and banging on it to try and make it go, so she hid it until she can fix it again, which she says will probably be tomorrow night.

Well, that was my Gotcha day, and even though I didn't get to spend all day with her on it, I still had a lot of fun, and I am really enjoying playing with Cammy. I don't want her to leave! We will have to have more sleepovers in the future!

Oh! And I GOT AN AWARD! I will post it in my next post, but it was a WONDERFUL Gotcha Day present! Thanks so much  Crews' Max, Misty, Tipper and George!

Sorry there are still no new pictures, Mommy tried to use her mother's camera, but it wasn't working right. Hopefully soon Mommy will get her OWN cheap one! Now I gotta run and catch up to Cammy! Seeya!
