Darby's 13th Gotcha Day and St Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day and a Happy 13th Gotcha Day to our sweet Darby! We caught her all those years ago after she had been living in the crawlspace under the house we rented.  We put a kennel cage on the porch for her to use to keep warm and snug that winter and once she got used to it,  we made a trap out of it with a string tied to the door.  

Watching Darby

We set the kennel right outside the front door  and we all watched from inside the house - Chica, Yoko and Sweetpea too.  Once Darby went in, we pulled the door shut from inside the house.  Got her!  She was not happy but she was safe.  We got her spayed and tamed her - now that was a long story in and of itself.  She was one wild kitty.

Darby at her desk

But now she is a love bug and a Momma's girl.  All she wants is to sit next to Mom especially when Mom works at the desk in her office. As little as she is, no one messes with her much.  She can dish it out but does not like to get it back.  Mamacita  will hide and wait for Darby to run down the hall and then jump out to ambush her.  Poor Darby runs like the devil.  If it happens enough Darby checks all the hiding spots before she ventures down the hall so she doesn't run the gauntlet.

So enough of the stories. Since Darby is a BIG fan of nip - that is our theme today.  Help yourself to apps, niptinis and lots of  St Patty's Day foods.  Thank you for coming and for being our friends.

Thank you so very much for all the kind words, cards, emails and posts for our beloved Chica.  Your support helps us all thru a very sad time.

May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks.
May your heart be as light as a song.
May each day bring you bright happy hours,
That stay with you all year long.
For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to each and every one of you!
