I'm giving the back of disrespect

Hey everybuddy.  You won’t believe what happened this week.  The lady with the yellow hair forgot my Gotcha Day!  It was last Tuesday.  It’s been 8 whole years since I got gotted…how could she forget?  Oh, she said she’s been preoccupied because of her recent surgery and stuff. How long does she think she can use that flimsy excuse?  So I’m giving her the back of disrespect.  She deserves it.

To make up for it, she promised me lots of extra treats.  I told her that wasn’t gonna cut it.  I told her to get rid of those boycats and I’d forgive her.  She said she couldn’t do that and we have to come up with a happy medium.

I need your help

So I’m asking all of you for your help on this.  What should the lady with the yellow hair do to make it up to me for forgetting my Gotcha Day?  Let me know in the comments.  I’ll pick my 3 favorites and report back and let you know if she’ll comply.

Happy Gotcha Day to me…even if it is a little late.

  1. Happy Gotcha Day! We think you adopted a fine family. Even if you do have to put up with boycats. We’re sorry your mom won’t give you that wish, but moms tend to be like that. So we think you should get…extended brushie times every day, as long as you want. With a luxurious coat like yours, we imagine grooming is a big process.

  2. Happy Gotcha day to you Zoey. We think you should get extra treats three times a day for a month. That is such a good picture of you. Take care.

  3. OMC !
    The lady with the yellow hair FORGOT your Gotcha Day ??!!
    I sure hope you gave her a hairball in her favourite shoe 😀

    Happy Happy Gotcha Day , Zoey !!


  4. well technically I think a happy medium would be to get rid of one of the boycats but even I would not support that… happy belated gotcha day.

  5. We are sure you will need special treats to overcome the fact that the lady with yellow hair forgot your Gotcha Day Zoey.

  6. You poor baby!!! I think extra treats for at least a couple weeks, plus you should be able to eat them in front of your brothers without them having any…just for extra satisfaction 😉

  7. We think Marg has a great idea about extra treats 3x a day for a month. PLUS….extra snuggle time with your Mom!!

    Happy (belated) Gotcha Day!

  8. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey! You sure are a pretty girl! I bet the humans celebrate having you in the family every single day. Now, for suggestions. I think extra treats morning and night for a week; extra chin scratches for two weeks; and a new toy! 🙂

  9. Well happy belated Gotcha Day! I hope you get lots of extra special loves and treats because of that…

  10. Happy Gotcha Day! Lots of treats and cuddles!

  11. Zoey, this has happened to some of us, and it is totally inexcusable, especially as there are only three kitties at your house. We think you should make your human have a catio built for you. Good luck and happy belated Gotcha Day. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  12. Happy belated Gotcha! Day!! I think your yellow haired lady should bake you a special cat cake, put and 8 on top and serve into you on a china plate on a linen lined tray – AND she should serve it to you in your mostest favorite place in the world – wherever that might be. Take pictures – I want to see you luxuriating while you dine, being the queen of the house that you surely are!!!!

  13. We think you should get to have real salmon for a treat for her forgetting this special day. Happy Gotcha Day sweetie.

  14. Happy belated Gotcha Day!!! Extra treats and maybe a new scratching post/cat tree. Humans really know how to work that”oh I was distracted with my surgery” thing huh Zoey. 😉

  15. Gosh Zoey……you know the lady with the yellow hair had MAJOR SURGERY not that long ago and I know all of you have taken super good care of her…….but you have to admit she’s also taken super good care of you for eight years too….I’m sorry you felt like she forgot you but she didn’t do it on purpose……she loves you truly – AND the stinky old boys as well (haha). I think if she gave you some EXTRA treats and EXTRA hugs for a week, MAYBE you might be able to truly forgive her. I know that you know she adores you, she just isn’t QUITE back to 100% after that surgery. C’mon….you know you wanna forgive her!

    Love, Sammy

  16. Well, mostly I think you just have to not be a kitty for one day and FORGIVE HER.
    Okay, okay, I know that’s asking too much, so how about a nice extra snuggle from her tonight, or how about a little fresh tuna or hamburger in the bowl later?

    Or YOU could cook dinner for the invalid and make everything with fish and kibble and cream!!!
    She’d love that.

  17. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey! We’re sure that others will come up with very creative things your female servant can do to make this oversight up to you….insofar as that is even possible!


  18. Happy Belated Gotcha Day Zoey!!! We think maybe some toona might solve your problems. 🙂

  19. Zoey this is TOTALLY inexcusable, completely. I think she should shower you with treats, and buy you whatever it is that you wish for, that is just for YOU! Happy Happy Belated Gotcha Day sweet girl!! xoxo

  20. I think you need a nice cat tree to make up for it

  21. Happy Belated Gotcha Day, Zoey!

    Do you like home-cooked meals? Maybe she could cook you some yummy things? And send extra time with you?

    That’s a really lovely beddie, by the way!

    The Chans

  22. It’s time to make the lady with the yellow hair, Zoey! First, yoy look so beautiful in the window. Now, extra treats and extra time with the lady would be a good start. What do you think? Also, what’s your favorite thing? She needs to buy you a new one!

    Happy Gotcha Day!!!

  23. Zoey
    Happy Gotcha day sweetie. I love yourseat on the window seat!
    I suggest hiding her iPhone!
    Hugs Madi your bfffff

  24. Extra treats for a month!

  25. Happy belated gotcha day, Zoey! You human needs to get a roasted chicken, just for you, and not share it with anybody else, kitty or human!

  26. Forgot?? horrors! Well, first off, Happy belated gotcha day, we’re so glad you got gotted!!!! And second, you deserve something big… not just treats, but yes treats! Toys that only you are allowed to play with! (until you’re bored with them, then you can hand them down to the peasant boycats) A box, just for you! Maybe even a pink, girly box so the boycats know it’s YOURS! I’d suggest your very own cat tree, but it looks like you have a prime spot right there already! 🙂

  27. Happy Gotcha Day pretty Zoey ! We hope you had a wonderful day filled with treats and cuddles, and extra-treats for being late ! Purrs

  28. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey!

    We think a pawsome cat tree would be appropriate, too. A Gotcha Day pawty would also be a nice gesture. Since the lady with the yellow hair had surgery, she needs something less cumbersome. Let’s go with some live dead roast chicken and a new catnip toy 🙂

  29. Happy Gotcha Day Zoey! We can’t believe the lady with the yellow air forgot! Unbelievable!

  30. happee bee lated gotcha day two ewe zoey with mice creem dishes, best fishes & happee day wishes…♫♫♪♪♫♫♪♫ heerz two another 88…N heerz two a yeer a head filled with happee nezz & health

    we think yur dad shuld forgetz given yur mom that swell new 2016 red Porchse with leatherz interior & sun roof …..that he was plannin on given her…..for ther annie fursarry…..just sayin… 🙂 🙂

    heerz two a flathead sculpin kinda week oh end ♥♥♥

  31. This is pretty big to forget. We think: 1, give you a nice new fuzzy bed to sleep in. 2, plenty of your very favorite treats (accept no substitutions!) and 3, a nice cardboard scratcher would be nice. Sadie suggests a Turbo scratcher, because it has a toy too.

  32. Hmmm, treats in bed? For the entire weekend? Breakfast in bed, with treats, for the entire weekend? Love and kisses? There are so many things that can come from the heart. A guilty heart.

  33. Oh dear Zoey that is a big forgot, but we do have to admit our Mom has forgotten birthdays and major stuff like that. We think you need some extra nip toys and lots of good noms!

  34. Happy Gotcha Day Zoey! Being that she did have surgery, you could cut her a little slack. How about your own bag of treats that the boys can’t have.

  35. Happy belated Gotcha Day, Zoey! She has a good excuse (surgery) and it’s understandable, but still, you have all the right to pout 🙂 How about breakfast in bed, treat in bed and dinner in bed?

  36. Happy Gotcha Day you complete;y beautiful precious girl! I think your mom should make it up to you by giving you a good hour just you and her, and her reading to you, scritchies and brushies.

  37. Samantha here…I know just how you feel, Zoey, my Momz forgot my birthday last year!!! Can you believe it? The humans always have flimsy excuses….Momz said she was busy because she had just gone to the BlogPaws conference. Whatever…no excuse!
    I say special treats for you that you DO NOT have to share with those boycats! I’ve had some especially good shrimp ones lately…something like that might do. Perhaps they should be served in a brand new dish…something blingy.
    We girls have to stick together, don’t we!? ♥

  38. Happy belated Gotcha Day! Mebbe you can have your party and eat all the treats you want and the boys get to watch the whole thing without pawticipating in the noms. Do you like that Zoe?

  39. Belated happy Gotcha Day, Zoey! I think the least she can do is give you is give you real live dead shrimp and roast beast every day for a month.

  40. Happy Gotcha day! I think the lady with the yellow hair should kick the boys out of the bedroom for a night and let you have them to yourself.

  41. Well, very happy belated Gotcha Day! Now I think the lady with the yellow hair should give you your dinner ten minutes before the boys get theirs, for a whole week, and for a whole month some extra lap time just for you.

  42. She could get you a psychic reading from a happy medium pretty Zoey! Happy Gotcha Day sweetie!!!

  43. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey! It’s better late than never, right? My girl Thimble thinks that, to make up for it, the lady with the yellow hair should build you a cardboard box castle. And, it would have to be a No Boys Allowed kind of castle.

    Well, we certainly can’t wait to find out what fate is chosen for the lady with the yellow hair. The suspense is killing us. Purrs!

  44. Happy Gotcha Day sweetie. We sure are happy you were gotted. Don’t feel bad, M forgets mine half the time too. I think the lady with the yellow hair should get down on her hands and knees and beg you to forgive you. If she can do that, and stay there for 5 minutes, maybe you can forgive her. See it’s hard for humans to get down on their hands and knees sometimes, so make it really hard for her. She’ll learn her lesson.

  45. Happy Belated Gotcha Day! I think you should ax for a celebration like I had with a new cat tree and a giveaway for every year since you’ve been gotten. That oughta keep her busy for awhile. Oh, and you get to review everything.

    On a different note, I always thought you were gray but I see all different colors in your furs today.

  46. Happy Belated Gotcha Day to you sweet Zoey!! I say she gives you anything you want!!

  47. Extra treats, extra just fur you noms and a whole basket full of new toys! And a whole truckload of hugs!!

    Are you getting all that wind too…we have no power here,we are on a generator, thankfully! No fixes until Sunday evening we are told. Sheesh.

  48. Now THIS is a really wonderful post. Mom said she would never write something like this because she’s afraid of all the suggestions and claims from you “greedy kitties”. ??? We really hope she doesn’t forget our first anniversary in March.

    We think she should spend 8 minutes each day with you in the bedroom. Only with you, close the door. And take your favorite toy with her… and play only with you!

  49. You poor thing… The horror!

    the lady with the yellow hair should get you 8 new toys. Give you 8 extra treats, and she should be at your disposal for 8 more years!

  50. Happy Gotcha Day, Zoey 🙂 I think it is all in the yellow hair, so she absolutely has to give it another color…and a big Pawty with lots of NIP always helps too 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂 <3

  51. Happy Belated Gotcha Day Zoey! We think you should get lots of treats and nip, extra brushies, a new beddie, and those pesky boys shut in the bedroom for a whole day! Would that make you happy???? the lady with the yellow hair all to yourself for a whole day?
    Marty and the Gang

  52. I am sure you are loved and appreciated every day. HUGS!

  53. My mom hardly ever remembers any dates so I gets lots of make up love all the time! I bet that’s what you will get – lots and lots of love every day! Happy belated Gotcha Day and many hugs and smoochies. This is the year you gave all your loves and time to your Lady to help her get well. 🙂

  54. My mom routinely forgets stuff important to us. Sadly, I think that’s just how they are. Happy belated gotcha day!

    P.S. Caroline would love to know if you really find a way to get rid of pesky brothers!

  55. Happy belated gotcha day.
    I think you should get extra treats, and one mommy-and-me session where you get your mom all to yourself and the other kitties are in a different room.

  56. Under the circumstances, I’d forgive her since we know what a good compassionate nurse you are. Happy Gotcha Day and you deserve a favorite human treat like roast chicken, gravy and whipping cream.

  57. How could she!

  58. Happy, happy Gotcha Day!
    Have a super weekend…

    Noodle and crew

  59. Well…she did recently have hip surgery which is pretty big so we think you should go easy on her Zoey! What about your very own fort with a no boys allowed sign on it? That could make up for her negligence…;p

    the critters in the cottage xo

  60. Uh oh. She forgot your gotcha day??? That’s gotta be worth extra treats for at least a month. And extra time with just you and her, complete with lots of snuggles!

  61. Woo Hoo Zoey!!! Happy Beelated Gotcha Day!! 8 yeerss fur reel?? You do not look a day over 3 gorgeeuss yearss…..
    Mee finkss maybe you could ask yur Mumma fur a new mousie an other toy you have had yur eye on….xtra treetss an sum tuna (or fish of yur choice) wood bee good an of course sun sort of Nip that you like. That seemss fair.
    Pleeze reememburr our Hu’manss are toe-tally fragile an when they have surgery they are a mess fur a bazillion weeks…ok maybe just sum weeks….butt they do not bounce back as quik as wee do 😉
