Thanks for remembering my Gotcha Day!

Wow!  Thank you, everyone, for remembering my Gotcha Day anniversary today!  I couldn't post a diary entry until now, because Mommy and Daddy both have been coughing and I've got my paws full with my snuggle-doctor duties.  Thank you for the comments, rosettes (on Catster), and well-wishes!

Despite the humans being sick, it's been a really good day.  I spent a lot of time watching the leaves move in the bright sunshine outside the window and make shadows on the curtains in the bedroom.  Freya hopped up on the bed and snuggled with me while we both watched for a couple hours!  This morning, I got lots of hugs and pets from both Mommy and Daddy, and played chase with the kittens, my cousin Little Bit, and even Rori.  Then I found a sun puddle to lay in until it was time for me to snuggle with Mommy for her nap.  This evening, I had a long brushie session.  I love being petted and brushed.  It's always so interesting to sniff the brush before it gets used to pet me, because then I can smell Tabby and Carbon on it.  Then they sniff it to smell me.

Tabby and I have been getting along pretty well lately, but Carbon and I got into a fight about a week ago, when he didn't want to go to his room.  I went in because he was meowing at Mommy, and he chased me.  However, I gave as good as I got, so I was quite proud of that.  I wasn't too shaken up about it, either.  It bothered Carbon more than it did me!

Mommy says that if I learn to wear a harness I can go out into the garage when the kittens explore it, but I'm not willing to wear that string-thing yet.  I always run to the garage door when I hear anyone in the kitchen, though, hoping!  Maybe someday....

Thank you to Callie Rose of the Birthdays and Gotcha Days club on Catster for my beautiful piccy!  (Although it should say "Gotcha Day" instead of "Birthday", but that's ok since I'm not telling when my real birthday is!)
