Ivy's Gotcha Day


 Uh oh, looks like Mom forgot my Gotcha Day!  Since we got our computer back it has been nothing but problems.  Some programs are on it but don't work, others have to be reloaded ad then all our pictures are in one big file so it takes her forever to find one!!!


 It's OK tho - I am very happy in my home and so glad Mom gotcha'd me six years ago.  I spent six years living as part of a feral group outdoors and was very independent and would not let anyone catch me or pet me (except when Mom caught me to get me spayed)


All my brothers ad sisters had died or had been brought in to live indoors for some reason or another but Mom hated to bring me inside cuz I loved living wild!  She was afraid I would be unhappy inside but I love it.  No more worries about food, getting attacked by a dog or wild animal.  I love Mom and sit on her lap and make all sorts of funny noises cuz I am so happy.  When she pets me I can drool up a storm!  Life is good indoors!!!!  Thanks for taking me inside Mom.

Since this was short notice I will just share my treats and toys with you all for my party.  There is catnip (my favorite), Temptations, stinky goodness and lots of nip toys, balls and large stuffed toys to bunny kick!  Have fun and thanks for coming by!

Happy Gotcha Day, Ivy! It's great your mom brought you inside to live safely and that you enjoy it so much.

Sorry about your computer. Jan once tried to make a copy of all our photos using Photoshop Elements 6. Several hours and 2 loaded to the gills DVDs later she discovered she had one copy of a big mess. There wasn't one folder! Only files in no particular order. So we empathize.

Hello Sweet Ivy! Happy Gotcha Day!

Life *is* good indoors--the fudz and the toys and the nice beddies and the safety from predators.

My Human would love it if I would hang out on her lap--but so far, nope! MOL! Only if she's brushing me!

Nice pawty you got goin' here!
