Happy Gotcha Day, Spyro!
Karen Jo: Before I turn the blog over to Spyro, I just want to thank everyone for all the love and sympathy you gave me and the cats on the loss of Austin.
Spyro: I am resting up a bit because today is my Gotcha Day and I want to party hearty! I was adopted one year ago today and boy have I had fun since then! When I first moved in it was just me and Herman and we hit it off right off the bat. I was in the safe room maybe ten minutes before I wanted out to meet Herman. We sized each other up and started playing with each other right away. Then Oja moved in and hated both of us on sight, but got to like both of us a few months later. Herman had to leave, but along came Austin and Rocio and it was party time! We had a ball together. Austin had to leave, but Bambino moved right it and it's party time again. You will never guess what Mom is getting me for my Gotcha Day. I am going to love it and Oja is going to get hissed off big time. Give up? Mom found another mancat for me. His name is Jose and he's a three-year-old tabby-and-white just like me. We will be almost the same age, as I am two-and-a-half. I just know that we are going to have so much fun together.
Now it's time to party! Tonight we have niptinis, meowgaritas, real live dead shrimp and tuna to snack on and dance music, along with toys and lots of places to nap. In the morning Mom will start bringing out ham, turkey, roast beef, chicken and more shrimp and tuna, along with cat food for those of you who just like canned food and kibble. To drink we have fresh water and milk along with the nip drinks. We have nip, more toys than you can shake a stick at, wand toys that we will make Mom work for us until her arms fall off and Spring moths to chase. They are tiny little things and fly around in all sorts of directions, which make them lots of fun. Mom will fill up the bird feeders and bath, so the Cat TV Bird Channel should be pretty good. There are gopher holes in the back yard to sniff along with grass to roll in and eat and dirt if anyone fancies a dirt bath. I like them myself, much to Mom's dismay. There is a fairly long hall for THoE with a table for sliding across at the end. There are two nice boxes in the living room, one medium and one really big. Mom gives out treats to any cat who uses the scratching posts. Kitty rasslin' is a specialty of the house, everycat is welcome to join in.
Now let's get this party started! Whoo-hoo!
