Happy Gotcha Day to ME

Kittehs! It was exactly 12 years ago I moved into the condo! The move enriched my life as well as the peeps a million fold. Two years ago I had a big to-do and told the true story of my humble beginnings and how I wound up at the condo. It wasn't an easy transition for this little ghetto kitteh.

Happy Gotcha Day to ME

To celebrate number 12, I'm gonna pay it forward and help homeless and feral street cats less fortunately than myself. I'm asking for donations to Union City Feral Cat Committee. I've chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. UCFCC is feeding many local colonies as well as taking care of sick cats like Mary, who was found close to death. She couldn't eat cos of an ulcer on her tongue. Thanks to UCFCC, she's now healed and searching for her forever home. I have a tip jar available on Facebook where you can donate if you like me,  this blog, or just want to help. I fully understand if you don't have any green papers to spare after vet bills, etc.

Happy Gotcha Day to ME

Here's a little more about Mary, the face of my fundraiser. She was dumped at the empty Union City Department of Public Works building despite being declawed. When she was found crying in front of the trailer where UCFCC keeps the feral cats who are sick and recuperating, she only weighted 5.4 lbs and may not have lived more than a day or two had she not been rescued by UCFCC. She was taken to Secaucus Animal Hospital where she was giving intravenous fluids and had blood work done. Mary had to stay overnight because of an uncontrolled flea infestation and a painful coin-size ulcer on her tongue that didn't allow her to eat. Her initial vet bill was $527.

A guy at the DPW who was helping feed her at the trailer released her without UCFCC's knowledge or consent and she had to survive 4 to 5 more weeks of harsh weather before she was rescued again. Thanks to UCFCC and Dr. D. she is now fully cured and looking for her forever home. I hope you'll donate to my fundraiser so I can assist UCFCC to help more cats like Mary. As a thank you, I'm gonna pick one donor to send a coveted IKEA rat to. TW bought me one for a Gotcha Day present and she also bought an extra.

Now let's get this pawty started!!!

Happy Gotcha Day to ME

What's a pawty without food? Help yourself. We have roast chicken, ribs, prawns and fresh fish. Doesn't everything look tasty?

If you'd rather just have sweets, my private bakery specially made some nip cupcakes.

I have some bottles of my special Meowlot for those cats old enough to partake. I know those Tabbies o' Trout Towne will be happy to see it. Our bartender will be making niptinis and meowgaritis. Kittens will have to drink cat milk or nip nehis.

Happy Gotcha Day to ME

I want to thank you all for being my furrend for the past nine and a half years. I'm so glad TW and Pop decided to allow me to move in with them and to share my stunningness with the world. I'm the luckiest little ghetto kitteh in the world.

  17. CK, you certainly don't look like it's your 12th Gotcha Day! Poor Mary; declawed and dumped. Why won't people learn that declaw is a horrible thing to do to a kitty? Thank you for helping her and the rescue!

  20. Holy smoked tuna, KC, I never knew your whole story (just read it) and you come from Jersey City, my hood where I was found. But you were there way before me so we did not run into one another although that could have been interesting, BOL. So Happy Gotcha Day to you and I am going to go send some of my kibble over to your fundraiser.

  23. Happy Gotcha Day, CK! We love your twisted sense of humor. Don't let anyone tell you your blog doesn't matter - it's a pleasure to read and I won't stop coming by even if TW never stops by my blog (though it'd be nice ... and my cats are going to be really ticked off that I actually told anyone that). Just thought you should know that your blog is a pleasure and not out of obligation (comment for comment) :)
