Goldie~ Folks, I will be continuing with more mancat posts next week. The wee lad's fever was still high so they went in town to see the doctor. He's OK, just fighting off a nasty bug, but the PM ended up staying in town awhile as she was worried he would take a turn for the worse. They are back home now but the MM is feeling ill so I think it will be a weekend of plenty of resting!! Yesterday was Banshee's Gotcha Day, so I am going to hand the post over to her so she can share her day with you all.

Banshee~ Yes, I can hardly believe that I have been here a whole year already. After being at the animal shelter for six months, I figured I wasn't going to have a forever home. But, I had some luck on my side and was finally adopted. I can now finally say that I have settled in. I don't care for being picked up still but last week I started sitting on the PM's lap when she reads to the wee ones at night. A nice way to end the day.



To celebrate my big day yesteday we all got some tuna!!!!! Very exciting. I almost ripped the PM's hand off trying to get at my dish midair.







Shade even ate her plateful and she doesn't eat anything other than dry food normally.



I got some wonderful mousies too!! There were three such mousies here when I arrived and I have pretty much destoyed them. I was very excited to see some new ones!!













I then took a hour long bath and a looong nap in the afternoon sun.

Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee! It sounds like you've really settled in very well...how nice that you now sit on the PM's lap when she's reading to the wee ones each night! We love the close up pictures of you eating and also playing with your mousies. Here's hoping that the wee lad and the MM feel better soon...all three of you will have to do some super duper napping and purring this weekend to help them.

Happy, Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee! It sure looks like you had a marvelous time between the real tuna and the new mousies! You were having a regular riot! I'm so glad you found such a wonderful furever home -- you deserve it.

I hope all the beans are feeling better soon.

Happy Gotcha Day Banshee! Isn't it great having a forever home?

We think we recognize those mousies. Are they rattley?

I was already in awe of how bootiful Banshee is, then you went and threw tuna in the mix... I'M ON MY WAY!!!

Forever Foster said...

We remember waiting for the Big Reveal when you arrived, Banshee. Was it really a year ago?! Happy Gotcha Day, gorgeous girl:)

We are sending purrs to the MM and Wee Lad.

Gracie said...

Happy Gotche Day Banshee. What a wonderful forever home you have. You just had to be in the shelter and wait until this great family came and found you. What a nice life you have now! The food you got yesterday looked beyond good and those mice! What can I say about those mice! THEY ARE MY FAVORITE TOYS!!!!!!!!! The mom keeps buying them because we go on a mouse hunt here and she cannot find any of them. I should have 19 but right now we can only find five. I am not telling her where I am keeping them, I just will keep collecting them.
Hope the wee one is feeling better soon and not seriously ill.

Hello Banshee from another Banshee here in Wales, UK. I was a waif and stray too - my slave (sorry, person) found me when I was a tiny kitten, lost at the side of the lane. If I meow loudly and imperiously enough, she will ALWAYS get me little bitsa cheese . . . If she's not quick enough, I dab her with my paw to make her go faster!

I am glad you are so happy in your new home . . .

A Few Good Cats said...

Happy 1st Gotcha Day, Banshee! We think you have had pretty much the ideal celebration, with good food, toys and a long nap.

Glogirly and Katie said...

Happy happy gotcha day, Banchee!!!
What an absolutely perfect day you had! Tuna, mousies and a wonderful family and forever home ... what more could a cat want! I've never tried tuna but I'm liking the looks of it!
Mew,
Katie

Daisy said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee! I can hardly believe it has been a year now, too! You know, Harley lived at the shelter for 6 months before we adopted him. I think sometimes the best cats have to wait their turns and get extra special homes.

We are happy things are good in your forever home, arn't those mousies the best?

Huffle Mawson said...

Happy gotcha day Banshee! Your mum and dad were lucky that you waited for them in the shelter. Looks like you had a great day. I should get some tuna too, to help celebrate, shouldn't I?

Cat with a Garden said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee! We can remember very well when you came to live with your family. Those were exciting days! It's great that you've settled in so nicely. It's Chilli's first Gotcha Day in a couple of days too. We hope the humans are on the mend.
Many purrs, Siena & Chilli

Dear Banshee,

I would fire my Mom for missing this post on your special day, but she is all I have. Please accept my apologies and my belated birthday wishes.

Glad everyone is on the mend.
