Happy 15th Gotcha Day to Darby on St. Patrick's Day!

Me as the St Pat's Day Queen

It's me Darby!  Mom has not done a blog post about me in a while.  I am 16 this year and this is my 15th Gotcha Day.  Wow - I guess I am getting up there in years.  It has been a fun time living all these years with this gang of cats. Everyone is wearing green today to help me celebrate!

Snowball looks dapper in his hat.


Smidge is trying to pretend that mug is not hers.


Even shy Woody dressed up for me.
If you are new and would like to read my Gotcha Day story - go to Introducing DarbyThe second part is here.We have some fun treats to thank you for coming to my party - nip wine for those old enough to imbibe, (nip for those who can handle it) cookies and a rainbow cake for all.










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


P.S. UPDATE on Lily - she is perky and doing well considering the lump in her mouth.  We hope to have her with us a bit longer.  Thanks for the good thoughts for her.

Happy gotcha day, Darby! You were quite a wild one, weren't you? I bet you let the humans "tame" you totally on your own schedule. I'm glad to hear that Lily is hanging in there and doing all right.

May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
-Irish Blessings
Happy Gotcha Day, Darby, and hoping that Lily is feeling good too.
