Today's Special: I Ate the Word Day Right Off It!

What an amazing Gotcha Day I had! And I have my wonderful peeps and friends to thank for it. If you look to the left, you can see what my great friend Bizbee gave me as a present. He's my brotha from another motha! Haha! I think it suits me!  And it's low maintenance. I just shake my head in the morning and...voila!

The highlights of my Gotcha Day are as follows: a hug from a dear friend, BeaverWonderCat's HerbiePawty, all the wonderful gotcha day wishes from everyone, cake, my new blog and roast chicken. Anyone that knows me is thinking - how is it possible that cake is 4th on the list and roast chicken is last? Well, although I can't even believe it myself, I've learned that there are just some things more important to me than cake and food! 

That Webster guy defines friendship as the act of being a friend. And a friend is defined as a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard. While that is true, let's face it...there's a lot more to friendship.  To me, a friend is someone who makes you laugh when you didn't think you could, listens to you whine when you need to, trusts you with their deepest secrets (because you will never betray them) and is there for you all the time, no matter what.

Being as I'm a housecat and don't get out much (unless I fall out a window, but that's a story for another time), most of my friends are also my family. When my peeps asked "Hey you think you want to have an account on Twitter and Facebook?" I thought it would be fun, but I never thought that I'd meet such wonderful people...such true friends. I think what I'm trying to say here is that I love all the fun I have and all the cake I eat (never enough tho sadly), but sometimes I think it's important to step back and just say thank you...and that's what I'm doing right now.

But listen, I can't make this whole post lolly or I'll never hear the end of it.  There's cake and roast chicken to discuss for god's sake!  And everything you've heard is true! Peeps bought me a roast chicken and a cake for my Gotcha Day.  The cake even had my name on it! My peeps said it took quite awhile to explain "gotcha day" to the woman in the bakery! Two thoughts on this: 1) Oh if only I could've been there to hear that conversation! 2) Can you imagine being lucky enough to work in a bakery?

*stares off into space for several minutes*

Ooops...sorry about that! Bakery thoughts got the best of me I'm afraid! So where was I? Oh yes, my cake and roast chicken. Both were delightful. I did have to share with my siblings. My peeps' idea...not mine I can assure you! I kept them away from MY roast chicken as long as I could, but alas...peeps finally stepped in and divided it up between the 8 of us.  It was delicious! Then, after the chicken came the cake! Before peeps could stop me I ate the word day right off it. Haha! As you can see tho, my sister Bellatrix was trying to get all up in my cake! After the picture was snapped, I slapped her into next week, but, sadly, she's a tough broad and gives as good as she gets. It behooved me to allow her to have a bit...if you know what I mean. Pfftt...

So that's basically how my big day went. Thanks again to everyone who shared the day with me and truly made it extra special. It was a million times better than even my wildest dreams (and some of my dreams are pretty wild!)  I am truly one happy cat. 



  1. Great post friend (and a true friend you are). So happy you enjoyed your gottcha day. Love the afro by the way (whisperig to M - shhh - don't tell Herbie, but didn't dat go out of style bout 20 years ago?)

  5. Herbie,
