Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? I had my third Gotcha Day! A Gotcha Day, in case you don’t know what it is, is the day your hooman gotcha. Momma got me from the man who found me by a pond. He saw me, left me, and came back for me. But they have a couple of lergics in the family, and Momma says if you have somebody who’s a lergic, you can’t have a cat.
Momma got me a stuffed mouse with feathers for a tail, ’cause she knows I love feathers! I played with it like this:
Chickie came in after I finished playing and pushed it onto the floor. She said, “Happy Gotcha Day, Big Brudder!”
And we snuggled.
Then she said, “I’ve got a present for you! Follow me.”
And this was the present:
She let me share the catbird seat!
What a great present!
