10 Years of Joy

10 years ago today
a 6 week old kitten
was scooped from the hands of fate
of living life as a barn cat


and brought home with us to
live the life of a
pampered spoiled city cat



never having to look for food
never having to search for someplace warm to sleep
never having to fear for his safety 
always having plenty of love 



10 years ago today
a wonderful addition to our family

10 years of Joy

That's great. Same thing happened to me 10 years ago but it wasn't a kitty it was Pat! He rescued me and fattened me up like you did for Banjo.

Banjo, a very Happy Gotcha Day from all of us at the Lounge! Quite a few of us lived the hard life for a while, and we're glad you never had to do it. You are a lucky guy to live in such a wonderful home!

BeadedTail said...

Happy 10th Gotcha Day Banjo! You were such a cute little baby and of course you are a very handsome Mancat! We're so glad you were Gotcha'd by your very loving family!

...Miss...Maddie's... said...

He is a beautiful cat. With those blue eyes and dark tail as a kitten do you think he may have a bit of Siamese cat running through his veins?
Banjo was lucky and you were blessed those many years ago.
Have a great weekend.

Mariette said...

Dearest Catherine,

Congratulations on 10 happy cat-years. This kitty got lucky for finding you on his path... like ours, they're rescued from having to live a miserable life.
So glad my followers are back, after I added a button from Rosepetals from Heaven about Memorial Day... Maybe a little mircacle?!
It is annoying when things don't work.
Have a lovely weekend with your two- and four-legged loved ones!

Mariette

Katy Noelle said...

and, now, (being awake in the middle of the night), I've gotten to the last post that I've missed and feel happy and sleepy for my visit.

It's really, very fun to see Banjoy as a kitten. What a sweetie for sharing his catnip. (heeheeheee!)

Do you know, whenever I am Blogging and my youngest son comes in to the room, he wants me to come here so that we can see stories about Banjo. I guess that makes you my sons very favorite blog. =D

Well, goodnight!

Love, Katy xo
