Hi everybuddy!  Today’s my Gotcha Day!  It’s been 7 whole years since I got gotted!  Sometimes I think about how it would be if I hadn’t been trapped in that cage 7 years ago.  I’d be free and easy…like the wind…able to go where I wanna go and do what I wanna do.


But then all I have to do is take one look outside my window at all the snow and cold.  And lemme tell you…it’s really cold out there!  Brrrrrrrr!


And I say…NOPE!  That’s not the life I want.  I’m glad I got gotted…’cause I really have it better inside…even if I hafta put up with those silly boycats that live here.  Happy Gotcha Day to me!

  2. HAPPY Gotcha Day Zoey!!! Yep, being safe warm and loved is even worth putting up with boycats. 🙂

  3. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey! Laila got trapped in a cage too and is so thankful to be an inside girl like you too!

  18. Happy Happy Gotcha Day beautiful girl!!!! I think turning 7 calls for seeing you much more often on the blog!!!! Sending you much love!

  19. Happy Gotcha Day! We’re so glad you found such a great family to allow to adopt you. And may we say, those are such lovely pictures of you. Such amazing eyes you have.

  20. Happy Gotcha Day, sweetie! Having a home and being spoiled are so much better 🙂

  21. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey!

  22. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey! Yes it’s really better inside. I’m so glad you found such a wonderful forever home and family!

  23. Zoey, you picked a purrfect family even if it has Ernie and Wally. You probably wouldn’t still be around if you had remained outside footloose and fancy-free. And we know you wouldn’t be as beautiful as you are. Wishing you a day filled with lots of treats and love! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  24. Happy Gotcha Day, sweet Zoey!!!
    You’re a lucky girl, alright. The life of an indoor cat is SO much better.

    Now if only you could keep those BOYcats in line.

    Enjoy your special day!

  25. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey! We too are very glad you got gotted, and since you are the Queen of your house, the boycats are only a minor inconvenience, right?

  27. ZOEY happy 7th year anniversary of the first best day furever!
    Putin’ up w the boys is a pice of cake compared to a life on the street
    Madi your bffff

  28. Getting gotten for a feral kitty is the best thing when you consider the weather and the food supply out there. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey!!!

  29. Happy Gotcha Day. Being gotted is the best. I wasn’t born in a house, and life was terrible until I was gotted. Besides, Wally and Ernie aren’t that bad, are they? They seem pretty funny to me.

  30. A very merry gotcha day greetings from the boyz and I. We agree you have a great home on the island even with some brothers with large personalities.

  31. Happy Gotcha Day Zoey,xx Speedy

  32. Happy Gotcha Day pretty Zoey!!!

  33. Happy Gotcha Day Zoey ! We wish you a wonderful day filled with treats and cuddles ! Purrs

  34. Happy Gotcha Day Zoey. I think you’re very lucky to have been gotten by such a wonderful lady. And the bothersome boys are well worth the comfort of that big bed.

  35. Happy Gotcha Day, Sweet Zoey! I think about that stuff too sometimes, but then I a-member all the cars and big skeery raccoons and no nice food dish and stuff, and I think it was a pretty good trade-off after all!

  36. Zoey, you are so adorable! Having someone to give you brushies, fill the food bowls, and all that stuff is da bomb! Happy Gotcha Day!

  37. Happy Gotcha Day, sweet one 🙂 Pawkisses and 7 extra for the occasion 🙂 <3

  38. Happy gotcha day, Zoey! I’m so glad you are safe and warm inside!

  39. We are glad you were gotcha-ed! You should be pampered and not out in the cold!
