Today we are celebrating the first birthday of the newest member of the Kitties Blue family: Kizmet! This young lady has brought so much joy and laughter to our household. She is always getting into something and being a silly monkey.

On yesterday’s “The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky” post, we announced that in honor of Kizmet’s birthday we are having a commentathon. The proceeds will be donated to the Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC) to help support their orphan pets and programs. For each comment left on yesterday’s and today’s posts, Mom will be donating $1. The donation will go toward the purchase of votes for Kizmet in the Superhero Sidekicks Calendar Contest!  Kizmet began yesterday in 27th place in the contest. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, which we’ll tell you about tomorrow on our Thankful Thursday post, she is now in fifth place. You can find out more about the contest by clicking on the link to it or the link to Periwinkle and Stinky’s post.

Kizmet’s Birthday

To celebrate Kizmet’s birthday, Cooper Murphy made a cake and we all collaborated on making a card.



We hope you will all join us in wishing this little lady tomboy “monkey” a very happy birthday. And please invite all your friends to drop by and do the same. The more comments, the more dollars Mom will be sending to HWAC.

Astrid & Sampy’s Anniversary

From today forward, our household will be filled with two joyous celebrations on June 23, as Kizmet was born on Astrid and Sampy’s anniversary. This adorable couple exchanged vows in 2016 at the Blog Paws conference. If you’d like to see the original post, you can find it here: “Introducing the Newlyweds“.

Of course, we had Cooper Murphy make another cake, and we made them a card.



We are delighted that these two found each other. If you do not know Sampy, click on The Felines page from our menu.

To go with your cake, we have champagne and nip lemonade.



Thanks for joining us today for these memorable celebrations. And please don’t forget to ask your friends to stop by, so we can donate lots of money to HWAC.

Purrs and paw-pats, Kitties Blue

p.s. We have been very wordy today, but we are still joining the Wordless Wednesday blog hop at Comedy Plus.
