Hi ya, kitties! Thanks for coming by yesterday and celebrating my Gotcha Day with me. I had a great day! But there was one thing bugging me. A couple of days before my Gotcha Day, this came in the mail.
Hey, PetSmart! I got a bone to pick with you! Who the heck is Mistick and why are you sending him a birthday card to my house? And where is my birthday card? PetSmart, you got some ‘splaining to do.
Sorry, Mistick, whoever you are. I’m gonna be enjoying that free treat instead of you!!
Island Cats’ mom here. The only explanation I have is that, although Ernie was adopted from a local shelter, he actual was adopted through the PetSmart that the shelter worked with. Ernie’s name at the shelter was “Mister” and I think someone at PetSmart made a typo…thus “Mistick.” Ernie doesn’t know it, but Mistick has been receiving a birthday card like this for the past several years. Unfortunately, this time, Ernie got to the mail before I did.
