Three Years

Welcome to my Gotcha Day Party! First, I will do the big reveal of big Freddie.This is him on the bed today in our spare room, having a knead on the blanket. He is looking much more mancatly than last time I saw him. This is Freddie during his last week with us before he went to his Forever Home. You can see how big Lishy was compared to Freddie. This is the boys today. Freddie is on the left. He has done a lot of catching up, and is about the same size as my runty brother. There is 8 weeks between them in age. Freddie is fatter though. The boy loves his food, and he has a very accomodating dad!
Freddie spent his first 24 hours here in the spare room and adjoining bathroom. Lishy snuck in between mum's feet when she was going into his room, and the boys responded really well to each other. I also snuck in, and Freddie didn't have a problem. Mum decided to leave his door open and supervise us, and we have been having lots of fun! Freddie has only ventured as far as the landing, but is really enjoying having buddies to play with. Suey is just ignoring us all, as usual, although she has had a couple of nose kisses with Freddie. (I thought I would add, mum only lets us mix with Freddie because she knows he is a strictly indoor cat who has had all his vaccinations. He comes to the clinic mum works in for his check ups. If she didn't know his health status, he would have been quarantined in the same way shelter foster kittens are). Mum and dad went out for a couple of hours today. When they left, Freddie was asleep in the wardrobe in his room. When they got home, Freddie was still asleep in the wardrobe!Today, I have been living with my mum and dad for three years. This is the first photo of me that wasn't blurry or of my bum.Mum thinks I was a gorgeous wee boy, and I tend to agree ;) This is me and my first toy, Marty Mouse. You might remember Marty as the intrepid reporter who travelled between Townsville and Sydney with mum and dad last year. I settled in really well, and was wandering around like I owned the place within an hour. Mum is very grateful to my foster mum, her friend Kate, who raised me to be a confident, well adjusted babycat.
Now, it's time to party! We've got all sorts of stinky goodness and Temptations, so dig in! :)
Love Fui.

Happy Gotcha Day, Fui! Three years in a wonderful Forever Home. Way to go! We'll be over (as soon as we get up) with some nip and a jar of moths to play with.

Mommy says Freddie is snorgelishus!

And Lishy, Sweet Pea doesn't think she's your birth Mummy, but she would be ever so happy to be your Cod-Mother; because every Kitten needs a fish to watch over them. MOL! She's a wicked good ear cleaner, BTY.

Fin said...

Happiest of Gotcha Days Fui!! Have a great time with your brother cats and Suey too.

Did you know we still have our Marty Mouse that you sent us? He's a purrfect size for carrying around the house and whapping!

All 8 of us kitties are here and ready to PARTY!!!! We've snuck in some nip...did you know that if you transport the nip by boogie mat it doesn't get confiscated by the authorities??

Hope you don't mind that Grete tagged along too.

xoxo Cory and family
