My Gotcha Day

GRRRETA: See my face. This is NOT my happy face. As some of my dear sweet blogging friends have pointed out, today is my gotcha day. It seems that my mom was the last one to figure it out. Can you believe SHE FORGOT MY GOTCHA DAY! No card, no gift, no party, no extra treats or snuggles...nada, nothing, zilch! I can't believe it! I have given her the best years of my life and this is what I get! If you look closely at my picture, you will see she even had the nerve to use a picture of me with my furs sticking up on the top of my head. If I don't see a freaking party hat or a gotcha day gift before midnight, I swear I'm calling the ASPCA! MOM, AMBROSE, TEDDI, and CHLOE: SURPRISE !!!!!!! HAPPY GOTCHA DAY !!!! GRRRETA: Nice try, but I know you forgot. MOM: Okay, I admit it. I planned to have a party on May 1st for all four of you kitties, because your gotcha days are within two weeks of each other, but I can't believe I forgot to wish you a happy gotcha day and give you your gift today. I am SO sorry! Thanks to your wonderful friends who reminded us, we still have time to make it up to you on your gotcha day. Here's your gift, a brand new catnip scratcher box and catnip toy: GRRRETA: Okay, I might forgive you. And we have yummy snacks for your friends who drop by. We have cake.

It WAS pretty bad that your mom forgot, but what's worse is my mom can't even remember WHAT day it was. She says it was in August and that has to be good enough. Hmph.

Hi! Thanks so much for trying!! I don't know about that link, I wonder if you have to be a member of Create Space. Bummer.

I've order copies to pawtograph so if you want to wait a bit, I will have a paypal thingie eventually to order those.

Thanks so much for your friendship and support it means the world to us!
