Hooray for Finding Day!

Today is the 3rd (third) Anniversary of my Finding Day! I know most of you call it Gotcha Day--same thing! Gotcha/Finding Day = Forever Home!

I was worried how my Finding Day would pan out after last week's fiasco. Luckily Not-Tober has not returned to my Library. No one has called to claim him, but his foster person will gladly give him a Forever Home if we don't hear anything soon.

So I guess it's okay that he used my Library.

I'm still not over the use of my litter pan, though. That was just rude.

Anyhow, today I have been a safe & sound FOUND cat for Three Whole Years. My AAB Karen knows a good cat when she sees one, and I'm glad she saw me!

On Monday I had my Very Own Special Storytime. My friend Michael read Splat the Cat to me. Splat the Cat is very worried about his first day of school. Of course, he has to go to school so he can learn things (maybe how to write blogs?), and the story tells all about how he coped with his first day.

Michael did an excellent job reading me the story, especially with all the hard words in it. I hope I get to have more Special Storytimes like that!

I commanded my Photographer to take a picture of my Poster Contest submissions. She listened for once!

Once November 2 is here, I will have one of my staff scan them and I'll post them on the blog so everybody can see how nice they all are! Don't forget to submit your entries! The winner will be announced on November 3--my Hire Date here at the Library.

I also got a Gotcha Day Card today!

Who knew they made Gotcha Day Cards? Especially with Handsome Orange Cats on them? Wow! Thanks Laila and Minchie!

Even when they do dumb things (like letting a strange cat Number One and Number Two in my box), I'm lucky to have such a Wonderful Staff and Bored Board here at my Library. Lots of animals don't have it so good. I'm also lucky to have such Great Blogging Friends and Library customers!

Of course, there is a price to pay for all of this Wonderfulness--even on my Finding Day. For some reason, Finding Day means I get chased around with the camera a LOT. Here I am frowning at Photographer. She has this obsession with my ears. She gets all upset when she thinks they are pointed the wrong way in a photo.

My ears are pointed appropriately forward (it makes AAB Photographer feel good when she thinks I give a hoot about her picture-taking), but I am Frowning just to spite her.

For those of you who requested a side-by-side of me and Not-Tober, here you go!

Now that you see us side-by-side, I bet you can see the differences. Not-Tober hasn't quite grown into his ears yet, and he's got a long long tail. I also have more face-white and Magnificent Whiskers.

I think I'm a much more Mature and Dignified cat. But I wish all the best to Not-Tober (as long as he stays out of my Library).

Okay, that's enough words in honor of my Finding Day!

Safe & Sound & Found,


PS I rehired the Fired staff because AAB Kathy was getting lonely without them.

Aw, that was sweet of you to rehire the fired staff. You're a tough but good boss.

Happy Gotcha/Finding Day, Tober! You deserve a good home.

Happy 3rd Gotcha/Finding day Tober. How lucky you are to have such a wonderful place to live. Mummy works in a library and wishes she had a nice kitty like you living there too. Not Tober looks ever so much like my big brother Simba. Its not him though cause he doesn't go very far out of the garden let alone over the sea :)xx

Happy 3rd Finding/Gotcha Day, Tober! Seems like you had a terrific day. Except we think you ought to have received a brand new gigantic litter box. ;-)

Happy Finding Day Dear Tober !!!

Happy Gotcha Day Tober!!!!!!! We are so very glad you were gotch'ad and hired at the library! Somecat has to keep all those workers in line!

goodness, Not-tober is just a youngster! We are glad that his foster pawrents are willing to adopt him!

G said...

I was wondering about the fired staff...

Also, thanks for posting the side by side pics. Of course Not-Tober doesn't have your majestic bearing but you two do kind of look alike although less so when I see you two together.

Congrats on your Finding Day!

Happy Finding Day, Tober! And let's hope your staff doesn't get any more bright ideas like bringing another Not-Tober into the library!!

Sparkle said...

Happy Finding Day, Tober! And really, aren't you kind of glad that Non-Tober seems to have had his own Finding Day?
