Happy Gotcha Day to me my human!

First things first: I want to wish a very Happy Purrthday to the beautiful Sparkle!

It so happens that today is also Cat World Domination Day (like everyday, but today a little more!), so remember to visit Sparkle on these two impawtant occasions!

This is also Jewel’s purrthday. Please join the pawty at Fur Everywhere! Happy Purrthday, Jewel!

This is also Derry’s purrthday, at Fuzzy Tales. Likewise, please join the pawty! Happy Purrthday, Derry!

Now, I am sure you are wondering: “why this strange title?” Well, today is the day my human saw me for the first time 7 years ago and decided to adopt me. But on this Cat World Domination Day, I want to be honest…

***suspenseful music ***

We kitties all know too well that whenever we get the chance, we really are the ones choosing our humans. So today is really our day, or the day I got my human ;-)

Like I was writing yesterday, I trained her all these years to be a good human: play time, nap time, cuddle time, not-too-much-tango time, treat time, etc… But today, for my Gotcha Day cake, she made a mistake. Can you spot what is missing in this chicken-salmon stew topped with a piece of fresh salmon and rabbit treats?

You got it: nip! I had to wait for her to sprinkle some before I could eat.

Thankfully, she put some on my favorite carrot later too and there is plenty of stew AND nip to share with all of you! Mmmmmh! Yummy!

And that’s not all! She made some cupcakes to my glory.

Well, the kitties don’t exactly look like me even though they’re obviously ginger cats (I have a PINK nose, human, remember, this little pink nose you love so much and also my beautiful whiskers are white) but that’s a first try, so she has to work on it. And of course, your humans can have one!

My human will post how she made them on her blog, so I’ll update this post later today, if you are interested.
UPDATE: here is what my human used.

In the meantime, let’s pawty!

  11. Happy Gotcha Day to your mom. She is VERY fortunate that you got her and consequently she got you.

    You birthday feats look furry inviting. May I have a cupcake? Even the black nose part?

  12. I’m SO sorry I missed your (human’s) gotcha day, yesterday. You see, as the new Lord Chancellor of Canada I was… uh… I was chancelling (?) across this great nation of mine.

    But better late than never, so…

    HAPPY GOTCHA DAY! May your YEAR be filled with love & cuddles and treats & nip. Lots & lots of the nip!

    Purrs,

  13. We are pleased you have come to your senses and decided to rule France from the comfort of your own home in New York. We think that is wise, at least until you are certain that whole guillotine dealio is really done with.

The cupcakes look positively delicious, and we know your mom did her best to make them look as much like you as possible.
