Rumpy Bump's 9th Gotcha Day Pawty

Hi Friends welcome to my big 9th Gotcha Day
Dad helped me go through our family photos and I thought you would like to see them too

I came from Purebreed Rescue and rode the pet railroad up from West Virginia on September 18th, 2010. Here I am when Dad got me off the truck. The only cat on the trip I was luckily to be in a section away from the 30 or so dogs.

Dad had young fosters then so I got the big cage until I settled in. I had a cool toy too

That puffy tail foster is Phantom. He got his forever home 2 weeks later.

I told the kittens I lived in a cage for the 5 months before I came to Dads and was so happy to be out.

After a week in the foster room I came up to meet everyone
Timmy was the first to welcome me. 

Buddy and Toby were nice. They laughed when I got some sticky stuff on my fur and got my first bath.

My first Christmas. It was magical

Since I grew up in a cage I had no idea how to jump. In 2011 I got stuck after jumping from the bathroom sink to the linen closet. I was FIVE FEET HIGH! I yowled until Dad got out of bed and helped me down. Then when I saw how easy it was I jumped right back up. Hee Hee

I met Mr Buttons in Jan of 2012. We were great pals

Einstein has been a fun friend since he arrived in October of 2013 This is him in December

 Of course I love hanging with Dad the most. Dad says it
is interesting that I was not so floofy then. 
Hmmm, guess not

The next year in 2014 we were joined at the tail but he was a bit more to handle

This is my pal Buddy Budd in 2015. He was still BIG. He was BIGGER when I first came so I never wanted to wrestle him.
Come to think of it he is still big today. Just a bit slower 

Gee I have been going on and on about Me. Well if you know the family you know I am a bit self-centered but, what can you do.
Miss Fitz is running the pawty so take it away Fitz

Rumpy Pippo, Petcretary and the dog guys sent you a beautiful Gotcha Day Card. Thanks!

Happy Gotcha Day from all of us Rumpy!
Arrr Thanks and Walk the Plank

Buddy made his signature Strawberry Cream Cheese Cake

Dad made appeteazers

Filet with Bearnaise Sauce

And a Chick-Hen. Please tear off all you want

We have fresh well water (ours is the BEST) and a selection of Snapple and Fat Cat Beer. Enjoy yourself as much as Rumpy does!

Thanks for coming friends! Remember Einsteins Gotcha Day is coming on October 8th!
