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.

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.

Wordy Wednesday Challenge 2011

We picked out one word to describe each of us kitties posted here today. Many thanks to Ann of Zoolatry and Judi of Sammy and Andy's Place for their great graphics!

Senior cat Chica here and my word in CAN TANKEROUS cuz I can be one crabby bossy lady when I want to be.  Not with my Mom of course but if any of the other youngster kitties mess with me, I will growl, mumble, grumble and whap some sense into them. In my younger days, Mom used to call me "Queen of Mean" after the famous cuttthroat hotel magnate Leona Helmsley! Stay outta my way and you'll be fine.

" you doin'?" I am Joey and as you can see from my heavy lidded come hither look I am the ladies mancat of this group, a regular Valentino. My word is PARAMOUR. Nothing I like better than a snuggle and a snooze with one of my ladies next to me. It doesn't matter if they belong to another. I'll take a little lovin' any day anyway. No ladycat is safe with me around! Um, excuse me...time for some more amore!

Mom thinks I am a SILLY goose but cute. I love lots and lots of attention and I just love Mom to bits. I run around her feet when she talks to me and get so excited I nip her but just little soft love nips. I don't just love Mom tho. I love to eat and run to everyone's plate to see if they got something better. Mom doesn't have to clean any plates cuz I do that for her. If Mom is petting someone else, I jump up and get in the middle of it too. I don't think I am needy - I just have lots and lots of love to give. If that is being silly, then that is fine with me.

I think ya gonna haveta move over Joey cuz I am the young mancat on the scene - me Woody. "If you're lookin' for trouble I'll accommodate ya." The ladies love my swaggering walk, my dance moves and the way I forcefully slam cabinet doors. The petticoats call me BANG BANG! (wink wink) "Whoa, take 'er easy there. Pilgrim" Don't get all riled up Joey. I think there are enough ladies to share!

It's me Albert, the wild child of this bunch and my word is CHEEKY adj. - cheek·i·er, cheek·i·est
Impertinently bold; impudent and saucy. That's me. I am brash and nervy and go where no cats dare. As my namesake Albert Einstein once said "I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious." I am a bold and daring adventurer and nothing intimidates me. I climb clothes drying racks and balance precariously. Hall trees hold no danger for me. I love exploring and get into all sorts of things. Mom's tried to discipline me with squirt guns, time -outs but it doesn't stop me. I am my own mancat and answer to no one.

Al enjoying the view!

I am Two Spot and I am a TRAVELIN' man! "Up with the sun, gone with the wind." Zip, zip, whoosh whoosh. I am on the move all the time! I ain't gettin' tied down. Got things to do and places to go. I will always stop for some loving but not for long. Always runnin' when things get too crazy. Having' fun on the run...see ya! Gotta keep movin'!

We only did a few of us cuz it woulda been a lotta work for Judi and Ann but this was fun.  We can't wait to see what everyone else picked for their word!  Please visit the Cat Blogosphere for more words posts.

We apologize for Mom being late to visit ya'll this week - she has been going car shopping with Pop.  They have been told their vehicle is on it's very last legs and must find a new one ASAP!  So days she is shopping and nights working.  She will be freed up later this week to get to blogging.

Please come back on Thursday for our St Patrick's Day and Darby's 11th Gotcha Day Party!  Wear your green!

Hi, it's me Yoko today.  Since I am the only shelter cat in our bunch (Mom rescued the rest of us as strays or ferals) I am hosting the Adopt the Internet Day.

In honor of their 15th birthday, Petfinder is asking people everywhere to pledge to spread the word online about adoptable pets on March 15, 2011.  Please join us -

As for us, we are featuring our sweet Avon from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue of Asheville, NC who is listed on

Avon in her foster home.

She was rescued as an abused mother about to give birth to six kittens.  All her kittens have found homes but Avon still has not found a forever home.  She is a sweet, cuddly smallish tuxedo kitty, about a year old who loves dogs and lots of attention from humans. She is being fostered until they can find a forever home for her and her foster mom's phone number is 828 778-3011.
