Darby's 11th Gotcha Day and Happy St. Patrick's Day



Welcome one and all to my 11th Gotcha Day and our St. Patrick's Day Party. Mom said I was the Green Queen for the day and all my wishes would come true.  They have come true too cuz I was living under Mom's house in the winter and just a tiny kitten all by my lonesome.  A possum was living under there too and Mom was really worried if he would hurt me so she set up a trap on the porch for me and in I went and the rest is history.  To read the story of me Darby go here.


Mom gave me the catnip cigar to play all day with. That is so much fun! And then I get my favorite for all my meals - Temptations Treats!!!!! For all the party goers I will share my Catnip Treats with you.



And then my next favorite toy is my ribbon.  I love to chase it when mom twirls it in the air and when I catch it, I pick up one i end in my teeth and bat it with my paw!


Hope you are having as much fun as me today.  We are traditionalists when it comes to celebrating St. Pat's so we have green cake, green popcorn, green pizza and green beer (only for those of you old enough to drink), green everything!  Help yourself and I do hope you wore a bit o'green too.

Yummy looking cake!




And many turbo tracks  to play with!

Thank you all for coming and helping me celebrate my special day! I am a very lucky girl cat. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
~Irish Blessing



One more thing before you go - our senior Chica earned Honorable Mention in Brian's Home's St Patrick's Day Contest for this photo.  She is very proud of this! 



Brian just told us that Joey also earned Honorable Mention in Best Green Apparel too!  Isn't that great for Joe!!!!  Thank you Brian for hosting this fun contest.

A blessing upon you my fine small one. Here's to the number 11. Is hoping we are that it be the best so far and there be as many more, all even betterererer ..... Cheers!

LOVE the photos. I know the fun was plentiful and the treats were heavenly.

We don't celebrate, but we do have the treats when we can, and the fun when it's wanted, needed, and sometimes just because we can.

Y'all come when you can.

Happy 11th Gotcha Day, Darby! You sure are well-named for a St. Patrick's Day kitty!

You picked the best place to survive when you were a tiny kitten. It was obviously meant to be that you and your Mom would come together.

Dante, Dylan and Domino are all on their way over with a big case of tuna to share.

So, partay, partay, partay!

Here's to many more healthy and happy years in your furever home.
