Plenty of tissue and bows means lot of PAWTIES!



Sammy from onespoiledcat!

Calista was so beyond herself with excitement when she read his guess. Sam is one of our favorite kitties. Like us, he lives in Virginia, just a few hours north.

Sam’s gift is a kitty food/water bowl that was hand-painted by our mom as well as three catnip pillow toys, also made by Mom.

Just in case you didn’t see yesterday’s post, “It’s My Birthday,” or read any of the Comments, Sam’s guess was a dead mousey! Mauricio brought us a rather large, as mouses go, field mouse a couple of days ago. It was about three inches long excluding its tail, which Mom saw hanging from Mauricio’s mouth. Several of the other kitties were standing around staring at him, which usually means something is going on or all of them want what he has.

Mom had planned to get a photo of the mouse after she got Mauricio to drop it, but Dad swooped in so quickly with the paper towel to scoop it up, the only photo she got was of his hand.

Calista received two catnip mice* as her birthday gift. They were from Viva Le Chat on Etsy. The exterior of the mice are knit and come in a variety of color combinations. C.J. got mice resembling a watermelon and a candy corn. Of course, like all human and kitty children, she was more interested in the bag they came in.

Mauricio and the "watermelon" catnip mouse.

Mauricio is a blur as he plays with the “watermelon” catnip mouse.



Mauricio, however, was all over the “watermelon” mouse, rubbing it against his cheeks as well as juggling and bunny-kicking it.

Calista and her meowmates had a great day and want to thank all of you who stopped by to wish her a Happy Birthday and indulge in a little nip.

Unfortunately, no home was found for her sisfurs, Ellie and DeeDee.

* C.J. would like to apologize to Sammy that he won’t be receiving fancy catnip mice like she did. However, she promises that his toys are over-stuffed with dried, extra-strong, home-grown catnip!

Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
