Now this truly and honestly sucks. Here I am having a milestone birthday and having to write my own post. The petretary remains sick. Though her sidekick is a bit improved, he too is not up to his usual usefulness. And then, there’s the fact, that he’s not the one who publishes this blog. MOUSES!

Without further preamble…

Happy birthday to ME

Happy birthday to ME

Happy 18th birthday, Lily Olivia

Happy birthday to ME!


I did receive some very lovely cards from friends. This first one is from Angel Sammy and his new little brother, Teddy.


Lily Olivia's 18th birthday


Wow, I look pretty good for an old gal. What do you think? Am I fishing for complements? Darn right, I am!

The next two cards are from those delightful and always thoughtful Siameezers, Pipo and Minko. They said they couldn’t decide which card they like best, so they sent both.  At my age, a kitty never knows when it might be her last birthday, so I say, “The more cards, the better the birthday!”

With the sickos here, I doubt we’ll be doing much for my birthday, but Mauricio did make me a cake at his Cat Scout Bake Shop.

And we have some nip and nipagne, so please help yourselves.













Mom claims that I am getting a really great gift today. I did see a huge box arrive a few days ago, but I’m not holding my breath. I think the box is for Mauricio’s Cat Scout Cardwood Derby car. Time will tell, and you know I’ll tell all in a future post.

Thanks for hopping by to celebrate with me.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia

p.s. I don’t know what this voting stuff is about, but whatever it is, I am sure we cats could do a lot better job at it than our humans.

p.p.s. Please don’t forget about our giveaway, you only have two days remaining to leave a comment for an opportunity to win.

Happy belated birthday, Lily Olivia!! We are so sorry we missed it. You definitely don’t look your age… we would have guessed you are only 8, not 18!

Sending love from all of us, with special kisses and head butts to Astrid from Sampy XOXO

Lily Olivia…you’re 18! Unbelievable. You don’t look a day over 3. You are fantabulous my sweet friend.

We are sorry to hear your mom and dad must have caught a bug. Tell them to quit eating bugs and they’ll feel a lot better.

Happy Birthday, Olivia! You are absolutely gorgeous. 🙂 This is a pawsome party! Manna and Dexter say thank you very much for the catnip. I hope that your humans feel better soon. There are a few nasty bugs going around lately. The good news is that I think they are humans-only illnesses, so they shouldn’t disturb your party.

Meow Lily Olivia! Happy Purr Day! We hope it is wonderful for you!

This voting thing that humans do is like we kitties having an argument with our clowdermates and then thumping them so they get the message. But the humans have been arguing for so long about so many things, that they don’t even remember what they need to thump — er, vote — about.

Purrs & Headbonks,
