Jimmy's 1st Gotcha Day

Its my gotcha day!!!
Hey cats and kittens it's a special day in our house.  Exactly one year ago mum and dad made the big drive to the States and gotcha'd me from Chrystal's private rescue.  I've told the story a bazillion times so I won't post it again now, but in case you are new to the blog you can read about the entire adventure here

I've got cool brothers here and even a woofie sister who isn't that bad (tee, hee) and mum and dad love me a lot so I'm really happy.  I hope you can stay and play for a little while and help us celebrate :-)

Oops I almost forgot.  Mum's got a little announcement to make and figured today was an appropriate time to do it...so take it away mum.....



Well it’s happened friends, the call of the kitty is just too strong for me to resist…we're adopting another cat! If my mum was writing this she would say I've gone completely "HAYWIRE"  this is a term she reserves for my sister Sarah's shopping sprees when we are all on vacation together - LOL!!!

In case you’ve lost count of the horde, a new addition will make five cats and one dog.  We will be at the legal limit for the city of Toronto, full up...no more room at the inn!!!  

Who is this new kitty you might ask?  

Well, a beautiful black panther has been pulling at my heartstrings for quite some time now.  He is named after a character from the Jungle Book (coincidentally my favourite childhood story) and he lives in Illinois.  Does this ring any bells yet…any guesses as to who I’m talking about???

Tune in tomorrow and find out who will be joining Cat's Cats!

Happy gotcha day, Jimmy! I remember when you came home! I can't believe your humans are adopting another boycat! But of course, my human hadn't intended on having three girlcats here either. It just happened that way.

Clooney said...

Happy 1st Gotcha Day to my little twin Jimmy! We are so happy you ended up in a family with so much love. (PS: We love your contest photo from yesterday, it is so sweet!) We just found the CB last year around Halloween and we remember one of the first things was we followed the story of Amy going to meet Chrystal to get you. Then from there we found your Mum's blog once you were at her house. So that is very cool. Hope you had a great Gotcha Day today! And congrats to all on your new panther kitty, we love panthers too. We think it is Bagheera from Chrystal's! We look forward to your post. Have a great night kitties!

This is wonderful news. Somehow we did not know you had a woofie t0o!!! You know we always say..the more the merrier!!!! Concats!!!!!!!!

Angie said...

That first shot is perfect for Halloween ...or a Vampire story lol ....What is it about cats ...they just make you love them ...who said cats were distant and only liked humans because of being fed ... certainly it was not a cat lover.
