Percy was 5 and Sam was Gotcha'd

Yes, you read the title correctly. Percy was 5 ... yesterday! And guess who forgot!

A belated Happy Birthday, Percy!

Well, someone is going to get the cat shoulder of disdain for forgetting all about Percy's birthday!!! (Are you listening, Jan? Why bother to mark your calendar if you don't check it?)

But KC over at the Cat Blogosphere remembered. And thanks to all of you who came by to leave a word for Percy, Jan suddenly remembered too. She said she would let us do a post later in the day, but instead she ran off to have a steak dinner with friends. She didn't even bring any of us home a nibble.

And Jan forgot something else of importance yesterday. It was also Sam's Gotcha Day. Yep, 3 years ago yesterday Sam joined JFF. The baby of the family is our largest 4-legged resident.

A belated Happy Gotcha Day, Sam!

So yesterday was a really big day around here. Or it should have been. Jan is really in trouble!

Percy and Sam, we love you guys and we're glad you're part of the family! (Jan we're not so sure about at the moment.)

To change the subject, we're glad you enjoyed our post on Jan's lost-the-highway trip to see the Beach Boys perform. (Click here if you missed it.) And we've had some interesting comments. Many thanks to all of you who mentioned you will be buying tickets and coming to our performances. We can't wait. This is all so exciting. Well, it will be when Jan stocks up on canned music. Anyone know where these cans are sold?

Khyra: If only she had khalled woo! Woo khould have told her how to get home, eh? Oh, you can bet on that, Khyra! If she had called us we would have directed her home by way of your house in Pawsylvania.

The Creek Cats: Oh no, this makes us worry! Our mom and dad are traveling to VA from NC on Friday. They better not get lost! Don't worry, Creek Cats, not all humans are like Jan. Some have a sense of direction, can read a map, or travel with a GPS.

Reese: Don't let her out after dark again. We did restrict her, but last night she heard the word steak and leaped right over all of us trying to set up a roadblock to keep her home.

The Bumpass Hounds: Dad wants to know where Mr. Love's (be respectful to the elders) cane and wheel chair were parked? We were wondering the same thing. He's older than Jan and she creaks and groans when moves. Maybe Mr. Love has a special oil for his creaky joints?

Agatha & Archie: Do you need any back up?? I can sing and howl and Archie does drums. Hey, A&A, thanks for offering. Every band needs back-up musicians for emergencies. We'd be happy to make you part of the regular band but the JFF Band Bluemobile has limited seating.

Tracey and Huffle: The car is cool but maybe don't let Jan do the driving. Don't worry! We intend to do our own driving. And we've had experience. Click here to read about our past driving history.

  7. Happy Birthday Percy and Happy Gotcha Day Sam. We have an absentminded human too so we understand how you were "forgotten". We do wish Mommy had kept forgetting it was Friday and Scylla & Charybdis' day to go to the VET for their annual checkup. Somehow she seems to remember THAT and forget purrdays and such. ~S,S, C & F

    Happy day to both. :)

  27. Oh, happy belated birthday, Percy!! And happy Gotcha Day, Sam! (what a neat term!)

    Don't worry - my human is useless about remembering birthdays fact, last year, she totally forgot to mention mine on my blog but since we'd only just started blogging and didn't have many friends yet who knew me well, nobody suspected so she just kept very quiet about it! Hee! Hee! But after seeing how all my friends celebrate in style, she has promised me a big celebration and post about it this year! :-)
