...her gift of burrowing into bedding, pillows and settling in as if we put her there.
..how her easy going nature makes her a perfect victim for stalking and surprise ambushes (like this one with Darby behind her)
....sneaks onto the bed at night to curl up next to me.
...licks me awake int he early morning hours telling me she hungry.
...how she licks cream cheese off my finger and closes her eyes, looking so supremely happy to eat this.
...loves to sit and stare at the Christmas tree lights for the longest times
...eats very slowly, deliberately, pausing every so often (it seems like) to savor her food
her funny feet that seem too big for her body
...naps in the oddest places - on the sweaters in the closet, under newly washed laundry
...wails in a high squeaky voice when she wants something. (This is how she got her name.)
We leave you with this song by John Lennon called Oh Yoko, about her namesake!
We love you sweet Yokie and hope you will be with us for years to come! You were the best Mother's Day gift I ever got. Help yourself to the cake, ice cream, nip, tunnels, crinkle balls and let the celebration begin!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU for putting up a "subscribe by email" option...I just signed up! That is sooo much easier than going to a blogroll! This way I can keep up with ALL of your posts because I ALWAYS read my emails!
NINETEEN YEARS!? That is impressive.
Hope you have a great Gotcha Day, Yoko, with lots of treats and cuddles. You probably sing better than the famous Yoko.
Happy Gotcha Day, Yoko! We enjoyed the party stuff, and just want to say "19 is AWESOME!"
Laura & Taffy
Yoko is an adorable girl!

Ahh... what great memories. How wonderful and thank you for sharing.
I love those "funny feet". Just adorable.
So many terrific memories! Happy birthday, Yoko!
We are so sorry we are late. Mom has not been online a lot the last few days. WE are so glad to know you celebrated such a special purrday and we wish you at least 19 more.
Happy Purrday Yoko.
Yoko was so cute when a little one!!! I love that photo. I have a cat who's paws are big for her body.
Hope your mother's day was good.

Hi everyone! I'm back to say thank you so much for coming to my party and helping to make it a success! I hope you had a great time. It was a pleasure to see you all there.
I love your tribute to Yoko, and love how she got her name! (I know I've already said that.)
Happy belated Gotcha Day to Yoko (and belated Mothers Day to all the moms reading this). The post is a great tribute to both!
It's a good combination of days to celebrate. For us, it's great that Luna's Gotcha Day in June often coincides with Fathers Day ;)
