Misty May and I had a terrific birthday yesterday. Her birthday was pretty low key, but mine was a lalapalooza! The Wolverine Patrol at Cat Scouts had a terrific party for me. I had never seen so many scrumptious cakes and terrific presents. As I am the Birthday Master for the Wolverines, this was a real treat for me. I will tell you more about it next week.

For now I want to share my first adventure as a flat Cat Scout. As we reported in our post Furry or Flat Lisbeth Loves Charles, flat Cat Scouts have been traveling and visiting their Scout friends. Some have been doing this for a couple of months now. As mom didn’t make my flat cat until last week, I am just now on my first trip. Mom and Dad personally delivered me to Cat Scout Sammy and his Mom Pam and Dad David. If you read Sammy Kimmell’s blog, onespoiledcat, then you have already heard about our meeting and seen some of the photos. If not, you can see them here in this slideshow.

My humans went to Washington D.C. last weekend to attend a volleyball tournament at The Pentagon on 9/11. (But that’s a story for another day.) Knowing that my Worldwide Wildcats Troop Leader, Sammy, lived just about an hour away from D.C., I asked Mom (who asked Dad) if we could visit Sammy and his humans if they were available. And they were. We all met at this small restaurant with super nommy foods.

Mom Pam and my mom talked about Scouts and cats and themselves. Dad David and my dad seemed to hit it off right away and had a great conversation.

When it was time for my parents to head home, they left me in the care of Sammy’s parents. They were the most excellent hosts. And Mom Pam says that I was the purrfect gentleman. She also was happy that I didn’t snore. Good thing I was the houseguest and not my dad. MOL!

So, I left Sammy’s yesterday on the next leg of my journey. My lips are zipped as to where I will land next.

We have two flat Cat Scouts, Maggie and Felix, visiting Kitties Blue now. They are both Worldwide Wildcats, and Maggie is in the Wolverines Patrol with me. It was so much fun to have them here for Misty May’s and my birthday. I’ll share more about their visit in another post.

Until then, Misty May and I would like to thank everyone for all the birthday greetings and good wishes yesterday.

Purrs and paw-pats, Cat Scout Mau

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
