Birthday Gifts

I am the luckiest lady kitty in the world. I have the most wonderful and thoughtful boyfriend. Oh yes, and he is handsome too.

The day before Astrid’s and my birthday, we received a box addressed to Kitties Blue. I immediately recognized the return address; though, the name was omitted. I was anxious to open it, but Mom made us wait. It was worth it. Charles’ talented mom, Inge, made some of the gifts. There was something for me, Astrid, Mau and Mom, as well as some treats and toys to share.

Here are some photos. The first two are of me admiring my new star blanket, in my favorite colors, while Cooper Murphy looks on. Isn’t it totally gorgeous?

Astrid got her very own birthday gift as well—an owl kicker with a feathered tail. Here she is checking it out.

This next photo is of Mau in his new hat. It has bakery confections on top, including a cupcake with a cherry on top. He was not really happy wearing it, but Mom says he better get used to it. She thinks he looks adorable.

Mom’s gift was a really cute dishtowel.

I also get to announce the winner of Astrid’s and my birthday giveaway as well as the winner of the giveaway for the book, The Book of the Cat: Cats in Art. That winner, selected by, is Stephanie B.

That’s all I have to say, except to send a final thank you to Charles and Mom Inge as well as all my love to Charles.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lisbeth

Good morning Kitties Blue….everyone at my house is very happy you liked your prezzies.
We especially hope Ms.Lisbeth will use her star blanket because I wore it for a little time to get my smell on it :-).
Have a wonderful day Kitties Blue and lots of hugs, kisses and all the love a kitty can give to my sweetheart Ms Lisbeth,

Such beautiful gifts! I especially love that little rug! It looks crocheted. If your friend has a pattern, I’d love it! 😀

Hi Linda Arthur Tejera….the purple blanket/rug is actually knitted not crochet. If you would still like the pattern I’m happy to share it with you.

Lois D August 22, 2017 at 3:41 pm

I knit and my kitty, Sunshine, would love a star rug. Could I get a copy of the pattern?
I do not have a blog but read yours regularly.
