Ben's Gotcha Day and other news

Hello friends, it's been a while between posts again because things have been very hectic here at Cat's Cats.  Robert slipped on the ice at the end of January and broke his leg in two places, this required surgery for a titanium rod to be inserted into the bone.  He was in the hospital for five days then home for two weeks and quite unable to do things for himself.  He is much better now thank goodness, zooming around on crutches and back at work :-)

During that time we missed Casper and Archie's Gotcha Day on February 9, (2008 and 2010 respectively).  Lots of dear friends remembered but had to go all the way back to January 22 to find a post to leave their comments!  Thank you so very much.

Then today I look at the calendar and realize that it is Ben's Gotcha Day already (2009)!!!!  I am so very lucky to have these delightful cats who enrich my life every day.  It's hard to believe that the years pass so swiftly, it seems only yesterday they were wee.

Casper, you were TOO cute as a baby!! And Archie, we highly approve of your mice of transportation - we have one just like it. (Maxwell wants to know if you're an instrument-rated pilot! MOL!)

Happy Gotcha Day, guys!

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

MODE! MODE of transportation! Silly auto correct!

Happy Gotcha Day to Ben and belated happy Gotcha Day to Casper and Archie.

Oooh, we're sorry about Robert's fall...ugh, sounds like quite the ordeal. We're glad he's doing better now, even on the crutches, and wish him speedy healing.

Purrs and peace.

Happy Gotcha Day Ben - we hope you will get extra treats to celebrate.
Sorry to hear that Robert broke his leg on the ice but glad to hear he is zooming round on crutches and hope your boys don't make him trip up again. It was lovely seeing the pictures and loved the one of Archie as a pilot! Take care Cat.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Bellen said...

Ouch! Broken in two places! That hurts just reading about it. It must have been very painful.

And congratulations to the boys. Archie's aeroplane is adorable. (At least Maxwell's 'mice of transportation' was in a feline vein...!)

JC said...

So good to hear from you. I checked on your blog a few days ago to make sure I hadn't missed something.

Love the kitten photos esp. the one in the plane. Too cute .. and they do grow up so fast don't they.

Can't even imagine what went on during that time at your house. Being sick or injured just takes everything out of that person all around them.

Here's to Spring,

JC
