17th GOTCHA ANNIFURSARY!

Me and mai pal Gumby up on the fridge, circa 1999!
It was 17 years ago that Patty and Sabryin came to get me at the Furry Felines Cattery.  I didn't want to go.  I ran everywhere, hiding under chairs and couches and whatever I could find and wherever I could fit.  I ran and ran and ran, but they got me anyway.  The first night they were very good at playing chase me; not so much anymore, 'cause they are getting old.  Ahem.

Speaking of old, this is a very old photo of me and mai pal Gumby.  We had what mai mom calls a "fatal attraction."  The first time I met Gumby, he was so spindly I just wanted to gnaw his little arms off!  It's the feline in me -- those uncontrollable urges.  Mai mom kept trying to put Gumby in places she thought I couldn't go . . . like the top of the fridge.  Guess what?  I got there!  You can see how happy Gumby is to see me. 

PATTY:  What you can't see are the deep fang marks on Gumby's poor little arms.  I had to save him, I had to.  He is now inhabiting a very special spot on the top shelf of the wall to ceiling bookcase, but don't tell Bhu.

Anyway, Happy Gotcha Day Bhu!!  We absolutely love you!  xoxo
