AND I’LL NAP IF I WANT TO…
I’m really just saving my strength for a little later so I can pawty. Why? Because I am one-year-old today. I can hardly believe it. It seems like I arrived only yesterday and met all my meowmates for the first time. I was just an itty-bitty kitten and now I am all grown up.
Mom says that we aren’t going to have a big pawty ’cause that would be a strain on our dad’s wallet with eight of us. But…I can invite as many of you over as I like for some fresh nip or, if you prefer, dried nip. We’ve got enough for efurrybuddy, so I hope you’ll join us.
Mom did ask me if there was anything special I wanted for my birthday. I meowed a resounding, “YES.” As you all know June is Adopt-a-Cat Month, and for me, the most impawtent thing today is finding a good home for my sisfurs, Ellie and DeeDee. They still live with the best foster mom in the entire world, Mom Diane with Barn Cat Buddies, but they’d really like a furever home like I have and our brofur, Bobby, has.Ellie and DeeDee
Here they are. Don’t you think they are pretty? Look at those incredible stripes! They are a little shy and are a bonded pair, meaning they have to go to the same home. They are good with dogs if you already have a woofie at your house. They currently live in Hardy, Virginia, but my mom would be willing to arrange transport if necessary so that they could have a wonderful furever home. You can find out more about them on the Barn Cat Buddies website by clicking on the link in the preceding paragraph or by going to PetFinder from that link.
In celebration of my birthday, Mom gave me permission to offer a surprise prize to the first cat, dog, human, parrot, ferret, groundhog, mongoose or whoever, in the USA or Canada, to correctly identify (Mom warns, “Be specific.”) what lurks beneath the hand and paper towel in this crime scene photo. Only one guess per household please. Just leave us your guess, along with any birthday wishes you might like to impart, in a Comment. No need for an e-mail address unless you don’t have a blog. If you do and you win, we’ll hunt you down!
Hope lots of you come by to celebrate…no need to bring presents and no one will be required to wear a party hat, but I will provide tiaras for any of the girls or cross-dressing boys who would like one. MOL!
Purrs and hugs, Calista Josette

Happy Birthday! Such a pretty kitty.

Happy Birthday friend. One whole year old already. Like you I wish all the homeless woofies and kitties could have a great home like we have. Your siblings are adorable – hopefully they too will get a forever home. My guess is a hairball with kitty food mixed in. Yuk!
**The Tomcat Family Lines up**
Happy Birthday Calista Josette!
Happy Birthday Calista Josette!
Because you are a wonderfur kitty friend!
Happy Birthday Calista Josette!
Whee Whoop Whoop Whoop
**The family heads for the Nip except Timmy!**
Well Calista, to be exact, that is a tubular hair ball colored to match the perp-cat.
Our longer haired cats, Rumpy and Buddy, get them regularly, grayish white and dark gray gives away who did the deed.
OK Lets Party!!!
Happy Birthday to you!~~Calista Josette!!!!! It is sooooo exciting to have a birthday!!!! We are hoping you have the best celebration ever!
As for what is under the hand? That’s tough………could it be a furball!!??
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Cody and Caren
One year old? WoW !that is a very big milestone! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Happy Purry Birthday to mew!
Lots of love and kisses
Oh Happy Happy Birthday Calista! If I’d known it was gonna be your birthday I could have done a special card for you…..as it is, you’ll just have to settle for a special birthday hug instead…..I do hope your little sisters find a forever home like you have super soon. Your catnip is quite delicious – I love green stuff. As for your crime scene photo – I was gonna guess someone did the BIG BARF but since it was already guessed, I’ll try something different – how about a dead mousie?????
Birthday Kitty Hugs, Sammy
Happy happy birthday!! We’d love to share some nip with you on this grand occasion!
We hope your sisters get adopted soon!
Hmm, we’re guessing that there’s some kitty barfs under that hand… MOL a present for your folks!
Year #1 – Congratulations and happy birthday! Now you are a big kitten instead of a little kitten. Best wishes for your sisters find a perfect home, too. They look very irresistable to me, but our quota is filled.
Happy birthday, Calista! I have NO idea what is under the hand, but I know what I WISH it was – a big, juicy, fat rat! BTW, that nip plant looks awesome! Mine is always on the scraggly side. My human is not much for esthetics, so she prunes it rather haphazardly.
Happy Birthday! I really hope your siblings are able to find a nice home as well. You are very lucky to have such a great family. That crime scene photo might be a tough one! I am going to keep it simple and guess water!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Calista! We are purring your pretty tabby sisfurs Ellie and DeeDee find their forever home!
One year already! Princess Calista, you don’t look a day over kittenhood! We hope you gets lots of hugs and treats and love and treats and we’ll be sending you our best Birthday purrs but most of all, you ought to get treats. Happy Birthday, sweetie! Purrs…
Me Me Me! *I* live in San Francisco, so cross-dressing is my middle name (well, mostly I prefer to be naked and of course that’s all good here too)–so YES, *I* would like a tiara and then I will wish you the Happiest of First Birfdays (I’ve had nine of them!). I hope you get your wish for your sisfurs!
I will guess that it is a large moth that you deaded and left half-eaten. Is that specific enough? MOL!
MOWZERS! A whole YEAR! Concatulations!! And we has nooo idea what’s under the paper. Maybe Harvey’s mom who is an undercover cop (www.seabasscat.com) would know?
Happy Birthday Nellie, you are a gorgeous girl. I hope your sisfurs find homes of their own very soon!! One year seems like such a long time ago, my two are going to turn 18 in just a few weeks! 18! My babies turned to seniors! Enjoy your nip birthday girl, and tell your momma to enjoy the crazy young days while she can!
Happy, happy birthday…and many many more!
One is the best! You are there! None of the rest are the same. Hippo Birdies to Calista Josette! We have no idea what’s under the paper towel.
Happy birthday Calista Josette! Many happy returns of the day! Such a cute kitten would grow to be a lovely young ladycat. We guess there’s a hairball under the towel (or at least, that would be what was under it at our house). And don’t push down too hard cause they are kinda squishy.
Wowwie! Mes actually can sing the birthday song on the day instead of being late!!!
