Tabby Tuesday with Brian: Breakfast with Santa on My 12th Gotcha Day

Hello everyone, I just knew y’all wouldn’t be fooled with Simon doing Mancat Monday and me doing Tabby Tuesday for my special day. How many of you figured it out? WOW! I always did say y’all are a smart bunch, and it’s true.

Today I’m celebrating my 12th Gotcha Day and I’m having breakfast with Santa. It’s hard to believe it’s been 12 years. From my humble beginnings on a Christmas Tree Farm to being King of My Castle. It was just mean to be and I’m just as thrilled to be here as I was back on December 22, 2008.

It was, as most of you know, pretty tough getting here. My Mom knew I belonged here but the Dad wasn’t quiet so sure. Well, it didn’t take the Dad long to change his mind. All we had to do was meet and he decided to fetch me on home.

I’m not going to rehash my adoption story, most of you know it already. But dang, a lot sure has changed in the last 12 years. This past year has been particularly tough throughout the Blogosphere, heck, throughout the world really. But, we’re all dealing with it the best we can.

Thanks for coming by to help me celebrate today, I really do appreciate it, lots. Have a super fun Tabby Tuesday everyone! Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

If we had time (sorry …) we’d rewrite the Twelve Days of Christmas into the Twelve Years of Brian to help you celebrate this truly wonderful and special year! Happy Happy, Brian!
And share a little breakfast leftyovers with Santa there, might help keep you on his “nice” list … PS, Mom ‘n’ Dad made a very good choice that day way back when.

It has been a difficult year in many ways, but that shouldn’t put a damper on your 12th Gotcha Day celebration. I hope you had a tasty breakfast with Santa and the celebration continues until Christmas…when the celebrating continues!

Happy Gotcha Day Brian!! I love you and am so glad to have found you in the CB. In my case TW found me on FB but wasn’t ready for another cat just then. A few months later, she sent the link to Pop and he said “let’s get her!”
