Darby's Gotcha Day Celebration and St. Pat's Day!



Today is Darby's 9th Gotcha Day (Thanks to Zoolatry for the graphic) and we figure she is 10 years old this year. We discovered her living under our house one winter after neighbors' asked if we had a new cat. She was very wild and tiny. We set a trap to catch her on St. Pat's Day with all three of our other cats supervising. She came in willingly enough but taming her was a long ordeal and worth every minute. (Read her story here) She is very personable - loves to be with Mom whether on the computer, watching TV and just reading on the sofa. She is still tiny - about 6 pounds but very formidable!

We are celebrating St Pat's as well as Darby's day so enjoy the treats...

some wheat grass - especially yummy for those indoor only cats like us...
green frog catnip toys for all, in honor of the day....

For the beans we have lots of green goodies - pizza, beer and cupcakes for all!












Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!
UPDATE......we were just told Minnie won Second Place in Brian's Home's St Pat's contest for Best Use of Green. Mom used her winning photo on her other blog here. Check out all the other winners at Brian's!

Happy Gotcha Day Darby!!! What a great name too. We especially enjoyed the green pizza. It appears our St. Pat's Day post is all messed up. Some folks can see it others cannot. I'm glad I happened to look at 3/16 post to see that your Gotcha day is up. About the only way to see us today is to either scroll to the bottom and click on new post. Don't know what is up but it is very aggravating. Madi and Mom

Lucy the Cat said...
