Extra!  Extra!  Read all about it!


That’s right!
It’s been 8 whole years since I got gotted and became an Island Cat!


And just like last year…the PetSmart peoples failed to send me a Gotcha Day card and sent me Mistick’s Birthday Card again!  Poor Mistick.  Seriously, those PetSmart peoples really need to get their records straighten out.

But Mistick’s loss is my gain because I made the mom run right out and get me some birthday treats before the error was discovered.


So c’mon and celebrate my Gotcha Day with me!
The treats are on me!
Or rather…they’re on Mistick!

  1. Yay, we’re first to congratulate Ernie. Happy Gotcha Day you handsome boy! Our mancats send manly headbonks and mom sends a kiss.

  2. Happy Gotcha Day, Ernie!!!
    ….I’m a little bit jealous! I was adopted from PetSmart and I don’t get ANY cool birthday greeting. But you know what’s really crazy??? My shelter name was Mystic!
