Hey guys! I’m KING FOR THE DAY! That’s because it’s my Gotcha Day!

Gotcha Day Graphic for Ernie

That’s right! On this day, 16 YEARS AGO, the mom brought me home from the shelter and I became an Island Cat. That was one of the BESTEST DAYS of my life! I wish every cat could be as lucky as me to have such a wonderful home.

So c’mon…it’s time to celebrate! Grab your party hats…but no crowns, okay? The crown is for me! And LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!

  6. Ernie my man – our GOTCHA DAYS are worth celebrating BIG TIME because ever since we “got gotted” our lives have been dreamy and perfect – well – almost perfect anyway. Steady food, good nap spots, pets and brushes and toys – oh my – all the toys. Being safe in a happy home is the best thing isn’t it Ernie? I hope you celebrate tons more GOTCHAS and for today – a fabulous pawty!

    Hugs, Teddy
