Hey gang, it’s finally here, our big Birthday Celebration and Commentathon. And we think it’s way cool ’cause it is falling on Tuxie Tuesday! We are nine years old today. Only one more year until we have to have our senior cat check-up with our you-know-who. We thought it was a great occasion to celebrate our continued youth as well as do something for the animals less fortunate than we are. But more about that later.
We must start by thanking our friends who sent us some spectacular birthday cards. We never knew birthdays could be so much fun before our mom started writing about us and sharing it with all of you. So without further ado. (Oh goody, we made a rhyme!)
Our first greeting is from our extra special, good friend Sam from onespoiledcat.
Wow, we won’t even need any nip today if we stare at this long enough. All those wavy lines are making us a little dizzy! That was most likely Sammy’s intent. If we aren’t vigilant, he’ll be able to steal all the bacon noms.
This beautiful card is from our honorary sisfur, Nylablue, in Canada.
We love how beautiful Nylablue included herself on our card ’cause she’s a way classier kitty than either of us.
This is from our friends Henry, Oscar and Archie from My Three Moggies. It is all the way from the U.K.
It looks like they beamed themselves here, don’t you think?
We feel so blessed to have so many friends who care about us and are also so creative. Thanks kitties.
As most of you know, in honor of our birthday we are having a Commentathon. For every comment we receive on this post between now and midnight on the 18th (that is only 48 hours, so no dawdling PLEASE!), our mom will drop 50 cents into our Piggy Bank. On Thursday, the 19th, she’s going to bust that thing open and see how much we have collected. Half will go to our favorite rescue/TNR program, Barn Cat Buddies. The other half will go to the non-profit rescue or shelter selected by the winner of our random drawing. Each commentor (one per household please) will be entered. IF THAT ISN’T A CATABULOUS REASON TO SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT IS!
Mom’s not putting any restrictions on how much $$ we can collect. Sunday was our 200th post, so we are challenging all of you to help us raise at least that much! So let your friends and family know what we’re doing. Remember, being a blogger is not required to leave a comment.
Now let’s get this 48-hour P-A-W-T-Y started. Hope you all brought your favorite beddies with you.
Mom wanted to have plenty dollars set aside for the Commentathon, so we didn’t go overboard with the decorations, and we don’t have lots of variety in noms, but what we do have is plenty tasty. We, of course, have bacon for Sammy and all you other pork-heads. (We thought you might be offended and not leave a comment if we called you pig-heads.) We have tuna as it is Toona Tuesday for Bugsy and Knuckles, and we didn’t want them to miss the celebration, especially since HH (Lou) has been painting phenomenal kitty portraits of some of us. And we always have lots of nip! If you have other noms you are partial to eating, please feel free to bring them along. But do plan to share. We’ve heard that Cheese Doodles are way yummy, but our mom won’t buy them for us to try. Just saying…in case any of you have a spare bag or two.
And don’t forget that we have oodles of games, such as Fling-a-ma-String, Play Circuit and Cat’s Meow and a huge basket of toys. But best of all…bird and squirrel TV (three feeders/no waiting) from our very own catio.
If you can’t find something fun to do at our pawty, you are just a fuddy-duddy feline.
We’re opening the doors at midnight, but please no hissing, spitting, wacky-paw or shoving. There’s plenty of room and noms for everyone.
Love, purrs and hugs from the birthday cats, Mauricio and Misty May
P.S. from Misty May: Mom signed up Mauricio for Cat Scouts as his birthday present. What he doesn’t realize is that it is just as much a gift for the remainder of us if he learns some manners and to be a better citizen.
