You guys! Are you ready to party? I hope you are because today is my GOTCHA DAY!

17 years ago on this day…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! Put on your party hats and LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!

Oh yeah…I’m using this picture as my selfie, too!
