    Gilbert walks "with cat-like tread ..."

    And that quote is taken from the famous G & S operetta "The Pirates of Penzance". What breed is gorgeous Gilbert? I'm thinking a well-loved stunningly handsome orangie! That breed! Stealthily tip-toeing away with what looks like someone's lunch ? With Gilbert & Sullivan you have a duet of COTD stars in your home. Congrats! PS I performed in G & S operettas for many years, so this kitty brings back some great memories.

    Awww, beautiful Gilbert with your cat-like tread! I did "Pirates" in high school so my thoughts were close to Litterati as I read your story and enjoyed your photos! I am looking forward to Catmandu meeting you later this morning! You are definitely a well-loved and handsome orange kitty, Gilbert! With "no sound at all" you are easing away with something yummy in the first picture! I'd love to pet your purr-fect orange tabby coat; since I can't, though, I hope your people will give you some extra petting and hugs for me today. Some for Sullivan too, please I smiled when I read about how you can open a cabinet or go up a ladder! Of course you sleep on your person's bed, because you are much loved! I like your wonderful tabby markings and your cute nose! Happy, happy Cat of the Day to you, most handsome Mr. Gilbert!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    What a smart Cat you are Gilbert , taking that snack and the good thing is that it is not really stealing as everything in the home belongs to the Cat.
    That sure looks so good we do hope to enjoy it.

    What part of Hamilton are you from Gilbert as we are in the Red Section with the poor people near the Steel Companies,
    We are hoping that you are in a nicer area , say up on the escarpment or in the West End.
    It sure is nice to have a fellow Hamiltonian Cat as Cat of the Day.

    Dearest Gilbert, what a fantastic role-model cat you are in your first picture! Cats all around the world are looking at the picture and thinking "That's just how I want to do it!" and "I need to study his technique!" And as your fellow Hamiltonian Gary just said, "..it is not really stealing as everything in the home belongs to the Cat."

    All your photos are delightful! I wish I could reach through the screen and across the bridge and all the way to Hamilton to pet you and to give that tummy in the last picture some RUB-RUB-RUBs! (I hope one of your loving family members will give you some pets and rubs for me.) You are such a good-looking orange tabby guy, and I LOOOOOVE the closeup of you fast asleep with your pretty reddish-pink nosie right up front. And in another shot you're jumping up snatching at ... something, perhaps a flying cheese?... and then you're enjoying a well-earned rest in the one above that. What a busy, well-rounded life you live!

    And not only are you utterly gorgeous to look at, you amaze your humans constantly with all your gifts and talents. As your human says, "He could open kitchen cupboards, climb ladders, catch flies, has a strange affection for bread or baked goods, and one time I even caught him jumping up and used both paws to try turning a door knob." You sleep on Meowmie's bed with her because she is 'mom' to you! And how nice that you have a kitty buddy, Sullivan (of course!) to play with, too. You and your whole family all love each other very, very much. What a wonderful, love-filled home you all share!

    Congratulations, darling Gilbert, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and and Sullivan and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats, perhaps even another packet of cheese!

    Hello sweet Gilbert,

    My gosh, I understand completely why your mom couldn't part with you. Neither could I.
    Congratulations to you on being our honored CAT OF THE DAY. Lots of love & gentle pats for you
    handsome boy.

    Bravo, Gilbert!

    Greetings Gilbert! Happy Cat of the Day to you! What a magnificent Orangeman you are! I've never performed in an operetta like Litterati and cassiesmom, but I greatly enjoy Gilbert & Sullivan, and Pirates of Penzance is enchanting! But you, Gilbert, are an opus major, a work of art unto yourself! And as Litterati has said, with you and sidekick Sullivan in the cast, double the fun and furry love! And oh, if you couldn't be any more captivating, you're a ringer for my orange boy, Tigg'r! Now, is that a Twinkie you're purloining? Carry on, Gilbert, enjoying your well earned day celeb with your counterpart, Sullivan, being pampered royally! Lots of love to you, precious Gilbert, and to Sullivan too!

    Star,Tigg'r , Mollie and the10 Gallon Gang!
