Joey's Thanksgiving Gotcha Day Commentathon


“True benevolence or compassion, extends itself through the whole of existence and sympathizes with the distress of every creature capable of sensation.”—Joseph Addison


This week we want to celebrate our Joey's Gotcha Day by thanking all of you who rescue pets - whether you adopt shelter animals, care for ferals, run a shelter or just treat animals with kindness any way you can. In particular we want to thank Chrystal (you know her from her blog Daily dose of Dogs (cats with your coffee)) by making a donation to her private rescue organization. For every comment you make from Wednesday thru Friday this week, we will donate 50 cents to her rescue efforts.

Younger Joey on the porch of the old house.

Now on to Joeys story.....We will never forget the Thanksgiving of 2001 cuz that was the day we caught Joey and brought him inside to live with us. He had been getting beat up by some other cat outdoors and came by with yet another injury so Mom tricked him into coming on the enclosed porch on Thanksgiving morning while Pop was making the turkey. Getting him inside was one thing but they spent a good part of the day trying to catch him to keep him confined in a kennel to let him get used to being inside with all of us. He was great at hiding and fitting into tiny places so he was a tough kitty to catch but they did! Read more about his actual Gotcha Day here.

Joey on the heater.


Joey should be the poster boy for rescued feral cats because he is so loving and easy going. We are thankful for his good nature. He is always the first to welcome the newer cats into the house, gets along with everyone and loves to cuddle (next to eating). He gets excited easily when Mom loves him up and bites her hand but not too hard. Being the only male in his group, he is happiest snuggling with any of the lady cats in the house or being squashed between two of them getting groomed. He is small boned but with a droopy tummy that kinda waddles when he walks. When he is happy and playing he skips sideways like a little kitten, tummy bouncing everywhere. He loves sitting on the heater in cold weather or baking in front of it. He is a joy to be with and we love him sooo much.

Please help yourself. to the catnip, treats and toys and enjoy the party!





Mom has not posted or visited much this week as she brought Woody inside (Woody's post ) and has been trying to make him feel safe and comfortable, has had doctor appointments for herself cuz she is not feeling well and is working more hours cuz of the holidays. She will try to get by to visit you this week for sure. Please stop by and read Chrystal's blog, make a donation or just follow her wonderful adventures in rescuing homeless animals. Visit her here at Chrystal's Rescue.

Thanks to all of you for your efforts in helping homeless animals. Wishing you a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!
UPDATE  The commenatathon goes until Friday so keep passing it along for more comments! Mom had to work Thanksgiving and will be working  all weekend but will visit everyone to thank them the next few days. Thanks to all who have come by. Keep the comments coming!

Happy Gotcha Day, Joey! We're so happy your mom and dad brought you inside. What a sweetie you are--life on the inside definitely is better!

The commentathon is a great idea, if it's okay, we'll let KC know (if you haven't already).

I'm sitting here staring at the computer screen, with tears streaming down my face. You guys are some of the most wonderful people I've ever met and I have been so glad to know you and your work. I find what you do to be beyond exceptional, and feel proud to know you. I haven't visited everywhere I'd like to since my husband's surgery, but when I got your comment on my blog today, I raced over. And there it is. One of the most wonderful gifts we have ever received. You are amazing. I will never be able to thank you enough. I can only hope to make you proud of us by continuing our rescue efforts.
With love and deep gratitude,
Chrystal

Cat said...

First we would like to wish Joey a Happy Gotcha Day, my boys are very excited about his party! He sounds like just a fantastic cat and I think you are both lucky to have found each other :-)

We are thankful for Chrystal too because knowing her brought us lovely Jimmy (aka Ash)!

Please take care of yourself, I hope all goes well at your doctor's appointment. I wish you and yours a Wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow !!!

Marg said...

Gosh, we hope that Mom feels better soon. Too bad she has to be sick for the holidays.
What a great idea to donate to Chrystal's animals. She really deserves it for all the work that she does and all the animals that she saves. We will come comment a lot.
Hope you feel better and have a great Thanksgiving. We also hope that Woody does all right.
Oh, and a big happy Gotcha day to Joey. He is such a lucky boy to have such a wonderful home.
We are extremely thankful to have you for our blogger friends.

Happy Gotcha Day to Joey! And what a lucky boy to both be rescued into a nice home AND be surrounded by such adoring women :)

Brian said...

Happy Gotcha Day Joey!!! Gotcha Days are the best and what a wonderful thing to help Chrystal, she is way cool!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Oh my, we don't know where to start ~ but think it should be with THANK YOO.

Thank yoo for taking in dear little Joey. Wot a gorjuss boy he is. Our mom has a theory that rescued cats are often the sweetest and nicest and cuddliest of all cats, because they are so thankful for finding a loving forever home. The description you give of sweet little Joey, could be our Alfie ~ they sound very similar in character.

We think it is wonderful that yoo are making a donation to Crystal's rescue project for the comments ~ she is so deserving and it makes us very happy. so THANK YOO. We are supporting Winnie's Wish and hoping that you get tons of comments.

And we are sorry yoor mom is under the weather ~ especially when she hasta do extra werk. So we are sending healing purrs and love.

And last BUT not least ~ happy gotcha day Joey. Purrs.

Milo,
and Alfie
and our Mom xxx

Elvira Mistress of Pussydom said...

Nikita says that means Happy Thanksgiving in Turkish, but since Turkeys seem to say that all day long I have serious doubts that he's being truthful to me on my first Thanksgiving. ;-D

Personally I think he just had what Daddy calls a "Senior Moment". ;-D

Daddy Kiril The Mad Macedonian said...

Silly kitties, both of them! ;-D

what a wonderful post, with great pictures!

Happy Thanksgiving from Nikita, Elvira, and I! ;-D

Chris said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Joey. I think Gotcha Days are almost more important than birthdays, and should be celebrated accordingly, with lots of presents, and proper worship from the humans!

Thank you for what you're doing for Chrystal's. Fur babies. I read her blog every day, and the stories she has to tell... what you are doing will help ensure she'll have MOREvnew stories to tell.

Happy Holidays to you & yours.

Happy Gotcha Day Joey. We are all lucky kitties here.

Meepsie was left in a box in front of the grocery store on 9/9/2001, easy and sad to remember.

Smokey is our official shelter baby, adopted by Paul after his dear Flumpy went to the bridge. Flumpy was dropped off by our mail box in 1997.

Chattie was also a drop off-- complete with microchip!

Chrystal--you rock, lady!! So do you, Cheri!

HAPPY G. DAY TO JOEY: Although we live in a retirement facility that does not allow pets, we were lucky enough, when we moved here, to have a feral kitty in the neighborhood. We were told she was called "Mozart" by the residents. When my daughter, who has 5 adopted kitties, visited us she promptly suggested that we rename the kitty "Samantha" as it sounds like the name of the place we are living. It did not take long for "Sammy" to train us to supply her daily meals. We know kitties provide a lot of love Wish we knew her G. Day. J & J

A catless writer is almost inconceivable. It's a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bite the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys. ~Barbara Holland
