Happy Gotcha Day To Me!!!

Hello there Audience!  Welcome to the 4th Anniversary of my Gotcha Day!  I came to live at Headquarters with my Human on January 21, 2007.  Neytiri and "Ducky" surprised me today with a sign and a gift of Num-Nums to celebrate theese special event.  Theese is the first time I'z ever told my rescue story on my blog.  So here goes:

My Human spied me on the interwebs and it was "love at first sight".  Theese is the picture she saw and the only picture taken of me when I was younger.  I was about 6 months in the photo: 

She adopted me from a rescue organization called Happy Cat Sanctuary.  My sister and I had been found living outside when we were 2 months old and some kind person took us to a vet clinic and then the rescue organization was called.  From there I spent 4 months being fostered at different homes until my Human travelled over 6 hours to come get me.  I had been living under the alias of "Bingo" for 6 months, trying to shake the paparazzi or the paw-purr-azzi, whichever you prefer.  Of course it was soon to be revealed that my true identity was George Clooney.  (I mean, come on eh...Bingo?)  On the car ride home, I cried in my carrier (I know, I know...I admits it even though I gots a "Mancat" reputation to protect) until my Human took me out and held me on her lap.  Then I purred the whole way and gave her "goo-goo" eyes.  When I reached Headquarters, I walked in like it was my home all along.  I was very comfortable.  I didn't hide and I wasn't scared.  "Girlfriend" (Inka) who lived there before me, observed me from a distance for 1 week (there was no hissing or fighting).  When my Human left during the day, she kept us separate and then after the first week, she went out for a few hours leaving us alone together.  When she came back we were friends.  ("Girlfriend" ended up being my best friend till she passed away in October 2009.)  So there you have it folks...my Gotcha Day story.  Now onto the day's festivities...Here is me today in my "Argyle" which I only wear for special occasions:

And today I have a special guest in attendance.  It is Mr. L, my associate from Von Ice Enterprises.  He is here to play the djembe and help me celebrate my Gotcha Day:

Cloon:  Welcome Mr. L!

Mr. L: Thank you.  Thank you very much.

Cloon:  I see you'z been keeping up with your Elvis Impersonations.  Excellent!  Now I must admit, you had me pacing the floor, when you commented and mentioned "new blog design" and "security" in the same sentence...Enlighten us, will ya?

Mr. L:  I was just messin' with ya, man!  Consider it payback for all those prank calls to me, asking if my "refrigerator is running".  I mean, my feelings were a bit hurt that I wasn't consulted on the new design... because of my background in Mockumentary Filmmaking, I may have been able to make a suggestion or two...Just make sure you still keep me on as the main contact to secure the premises, search for squirrels or spycats etc. I need to keep my "security" portfolio up in these hard economic times...

Cloon:  Will do Mr. L, will do.  And now without further ado...Mr. L and his djembe...1, 2...1, 2, 3, 4...
