Smeagol's Gotcha Day and Happy New Year!!

Today (Dec. 31) is Smeagol's Gotcha Day, and Mom just barely got this post up in time!!
Happy New Year, efurryone!!

Added Jan. 1: Mom was typin' the post as the ball was droppin', so she was in a big hurry.
She was gonna post a picture of Smeagol that was taken not long after his Gotcha Day, but she has a different computer and still has to get all of the pictures switched over. Anyway, we celebrated with yummy salmon!!

Some of you prob'ly already know this story, but we'll tell it again for those who don't.
The One Who Came Before, Smokey, had gone to the Bridge on Dec. 28, 2002 (he'd been sick and the beans were expectin' it, but they were still so furry sad) and they were lonely without a kitty, so they decided to see if the shelter was open on New Year's Eve. It was, and there was a black kitty that kept reachin' out through his cage and meowin' at them. It was hard for them to leave the other kitties there, but this kitty definitely wanted to come home with the beans!! Before they could leave with him, they had to call the v-e-t to schedule his hoohaectomy, and luckily the v-e-t was still open (it bein' New Year's Eve, they were a little worried that it would be closed). And Smeagol got to come home!!

Sorry about JoePa and the Nittany Lions today. At least they scored a few more times in the second half, but I don't think USC was trying too hard in the second half to score either!
