Happy Gotcha Day, Boomer and Bernie!

April 28, 2011 was the day I gotcha'd my new home....but the humans didn't know it then. They thought they were just going to neuter and release me but I had other plans! Heh heh. Granted, I had to sacrifice my, uh, you know what, but it was worth it!

2 days after my ultimate sacrifice...how can anyone say no to me?
I think he was probably around 8 months old then. What do you think?
Here I am with my continued efforts at wooing my Mommy. Serenading her as she cleaned the boarding room
The lady released me on May 1 but I just kept coming back which was how I got my name, Boomerang, which then became Boomer. I kept rubbing against her legs and sang to her several times a day. I would sit on the ledge as she cleaned the boarding room and sing as I watch Meow-Me, Coco and Felix play. Long story short, my plan worked and that, folks, was how I gotcha'd my Mommy!

Happy Gotcha Day, Boomer!
April 29, 2012 was Bernie's 4th Gotcha Day! He joined the family back in 2008, after Manny, Mr Brown's buddy passed away. Mr Brown was devastated and Bernie brought meaning back to Mr Brown's life and they lived happily as best buds until Mr Brown passed away on Nov 20, 2011. Today, despite being blind from cataracts, Bernie enjoys the company of his guinea pig pals, Curly and Pok.

Happy Gotcha Day, Bernie!
Everyone is invited to our dual Gotcha Day celebrations and there'll be a silvervine feast, with lots of home made treats, niptinis and banana treats as well! And LOTS and LOTS of toys to play with! Effuryone is invited!  See you at the pawty!

Happy Gotcha Day B & B. Firstly, let me just say, you sly little kitty. Good one, Boomer. If all the dogs and cats have mastered your trade, I bet shelters and pounds would be out of adoptables in no time.

Bernie, cataracts or not, you're too cute. I hope you have more gotcha days to come.

Huggies and Cheese,

Haopee

Happy Gotcha day both of you. You all of you have the best mommy in the Country.

Boomie, I have no doubt that your feline blandishments did the work for you and enchanted your mommy so that she did what she was fated to to...be your mommy.

I will be there..matter of fact, since you were here with me overnight, why don't we use my Ess and transport back together. Maybe I can help with the prepararins for the pawty for the both of you.

XOXOXOXOX Your Katie

Happy gotcha day, Boomer and Bernie!
Boomer, I love the story of how you gotchad your mom and how you got your name :-) It must have been impossible for her to resist when you rubbed against her legs and sang to her.
I am glad Bernie is happy with Curly and Pok. I am sure he misses Mr Brown terribly but he has such a wonderful family to support him.
I hope everyone has a fun party!! I am ready to join, too!

Happy Gotcha Day Boomer and Bernie! Boomie, we love your story and we're so glad that both of you were Gotcha'd by such a wonderful mom!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Well, Boomie, you sure was a cute boycat in that first picture. Also, I see now why Katie has been planting the idea she's YOUNGER than she thought--I guess she didn't want to be accused of cradle robbing or ennyfing.

So you're stay overnight now, huh? Well, we'll just have to see about that. I'll overlook it today seeing as it's your gotcha day and all. I'll even overlook the fact that your invite seemed a little, well, to be honest, taunting in its tone.

Oh, and Happy Gotcha Day to Bernie too! I got no beef with HIM.
