Happy Tuesday: Kat's 4th Got'cha Day

Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus 

Dearest Auntie HiC,

 It’s hard to believe it’s been 4 years since I decided to let Mom rescue me. Today, September 20th, was the first day of the best days of the rest of my 9 lives!!

I played “hard to get” for a couple weeks. 😹 Mom was patient & persistent until I finally gave up the Stray Cat life and became an inside kitty.
Best decision I ever made❣️😻

I love my home & family.

Mom says you have always been a great Kitty Auntie❣️
❤️ Kat

Hope you enjoy my stray cat video mom put a ton of my very first photos to some Cat-a-tastic Stray cat music.

Dearest Nephew Auntie sends you a ton of love and today.
You were such a brave and smart kitty to find your way to the most loving home in all of Georgia
Lovingly Auntie HiC

His office is the deep dark sea.
He travels in the shadows of night by the tower light.
Looking for treasures and trinkets while 
out of sight.
In the background you hear screeching from the
pirate's Parrot
 Cap'n my Cap'n
look starboard (right) and you will see a landlubber 
who is lost at sea. What an addlepate (fool) he be
out here on the open sea.  
Fair winds my friends
til we meet again.
