Hello Kitty


Friendly-Fill-Ins: Week #18


Here’s this week’s fill-ins post and hop hosted by Annie (McGuffy’s Reader) and Ellen (15AndMeowing). You can enter a link to your fill-in post on Annie’s blog.

As usual, my completions for the fill-ins are in teal italics.

1. I can’t wait for the new season of Big Bang Theory on television. My favorite television shows have always been the ones that make me laugh, e.g., Frasier, Will & Grace.

fill-ins2. In my home a screen on the catio needs to be repaired where one of those cheeky squirrels chewed a hole in it a couple of years ago. It is currently repaired with Hello Kitty duct tape.

3.I thought I lost my passport a couple of years ago. I had to get a new one so we could go on vacation but

4.Once, I found my lost passport—about two years after I needed it!

So I cheated a bit and turned the last two fill-ins into a two-part fill-in. If I hadn’t used the passport, my answer was going to be, “I thought I lost my mind.” But then, if I had lost my mind, I wouldn’t be able to think, so that fill-in would just be blank.

We’ll be back tomorrow for Athena’s Caturday Art blog hop and then Sunday for our Selfies blog hop.


Hi Efurrybuddy,

It is me, Calista Jo, reporting today to let y’all know that I had the best birthday ever. Now granted, this was only my second birthday, but it was pawsome. I really want to thank my brofur Mau and mommy for making it so special with the Hello Kitty Palooza theme. Lots of my furiends attended making it even more fun.

calistajobdaycard2I got this most excellent card from our furiends at Kitty Cat Chronicles. That’s where Astrid’s boyfriend Sampson lives. All the kitties, Sampson, Caster, Sophie, Sassy and Delilah are wearing Hello Kitty pawty hats. Isn’t that cute.

Then my brofur Bailey from Bailey Boat Cat has offerred to have his dad take Kitties Blue for a ride in one of the Hello Kitty airplanes. He’s a pilot. I cannot wait until we can arrange this. Talk about a once-in-a-lifetime gift, and it was for me, Calista Jo!

The cat's whiskers: Taiwan's second-largest carrier, Eva Airlines, and Japan's comic company, Sanrio, which owns the Hello Kitty brand, collaborated on the second generation Hello Kitty-themed aircraft, sen here at Taoyuan International Airport in Taiwan

Lots of my furiends asked to if they could get a Hello Kitty memento photo from my pawty. I want to share all their cute photos with you. (If you wanted a photo and forgot to ask or Mom missed your request, please let us know.) Efurryone has their name on their romper. You can click on any photo to make it bigger.

But the very bestest part of my birthday was the gift. I got something we all have been needing for a really long time…the others since before I was even born: Da Bird. The night of my birthday, seven of us (all except Misty May) played with it in the foyer with Mom for 30 minutes. In all that time, only one small growl was heard from Lily Olivia. I don’t know if she was on her good behavior for my birthday or if this is something we can all do together and get along.

If you missed my party, but still want to visit, click on the link in the first paragraph.

Thanks again efurrybuddy. If I could come to your houses and hug each of you, I would.

Purrs and paw-pats, Calista Josette




Welcome to Calista Jo’s Hello-Kitty-Palooza Birthday Pawty. Today is our little Barn Cat Buddy‘s second birthday. Pull up a chair and join in the festivities. And please take the pawticipation badge for your blog if you’d like.

Mauricio is the Birthdaymaster for the Wolverine Patrol at Cat Scouts and just had a Hello Kitty birthday party for his Patrolmate, Anya. It was so successful, he asked if he could do a similar party for his little sis, Calista Josette. What mom could turn down an offer like that!? Not this one.


We’ll be celebrating in the yard as our weather has been so warm. The pool is available for those of you who brought your swimsuits and want to cool off.

CJasHKWe have this fun Hello Kitty cutout for any kitty who would like to have their photo made as Hello Kitty. Calista Jo, as the birthday girl, is taking her turn first. If you would like one as a memento, please let us know in the Comments. If we don’t already have your photo, I will contact you to get one.

So no party is complete without the noms. If you arrive early enough for breakfast, please help yourselves to pancakes, apple turnovers, a Hello Kitty fruit and cheese plate and hot chocolate.



For those of you who don’t arrive until lunch or dinner time, we have some mini pizzas, sushi, cookies and cupcakes. And, of course, we still have cake to come.

But, prior to that, Calista Jo wants to present all her guests with some party favors including some Hello Kitty plushies.


And finally, what all of you, especially the Cat Scouts, have been waiting for…cake and some Hello Kitty bubbly.





Thanks so much to all our furiends for joining us in celebrating Calista Jo’s birthday. We hope you had fun. We know she did.
