Billy White Shoe's Gotcha Day

Today is Billy White Shoes's Gotcha Day, which means he is just a few days past one year old.  Billy has had an eventful first year, even without his start as a bottle baby.



Remember this?


Billy, sleeping in his cage at home, after the surgery on his leg.


Billy today, serene on the top of the cat tree.


But through it all, no-longer-little Billy White Shoes is still running full tilt through life.  (although I still flinch whenever he jumps off of the top of the cat tree)


 Still one of my favorite photos of Billy.  He's about a month old here.

Happy Gotcha Day, handsome Billy! Maybe you shouldn't jump from the top of the cat tree anymore? (it doesn't hurt to ask) MOL!

His feet were still tan-coloured at a month old, and yes, that's a great picture of him. I know what you mean about them jumping from heights. Yikes! Billy's found his place, though, happy and loved.

Happy (belated) Gotcha Day, Billy! Many, many happy returns of the day. What a cute little floof-ball you were. Of course, we could see the handsome man-cat you've become in your wee little fierceness.
And be careful jumping off of the cat tree. Legs ain't cheap, y'know!

What a great name for such a fine young man. Tom or Gib? I'm sure Mr. Johnson approves.
