I am contemplating running away from home. Why? I turned 16 a week ago (February 28). Did anyone remember? Nope.
It’s not as if I haven’t lived here since I was just a few months old and celebrated every other birthday here.
I know this has happened to others, but displeasing a calico is never a good idea. We can get very snippy and take out our displeasure on those who have disappointed us. A few well-placed claw gouges are not out of the realm of possibilities.
The stoopid human who types this blog thinks she can make this up to me by putting this goofy tiara on my head and giving my photo a fancy border. Granted, I look adorable, but “too little too late” is what I say.
She thinks that my getting first crack at the PetBox this month and last month should be compensation enough. Not! She didn’t have to buy any of that stuff, and I ultimately have to share everything.
I want a party. I want as much stinky goodness as I can eat, an entire package of treats all to myself and nip…lots and lots of nip. I want all the other cats, each of whom came here after I did, sent away to cat boarding school for the remainder of my life. I want reparation!
The female human (I refuse to call her Mom at this point) says that she is getting older and her memory isn’t as good as it used to be. I say that excuse is totally bogus. I am 81 in human years and she is only 12 in cat years. The way I see it, no matter how you slice it, I am older than she is and deserve her humble submission and respect.
And the human male isn’t any better. He also forgot! That’s pretty lame when you take into consideration that we recently gave him a nice birthday post on the blog and his Facebook page.
If anyone can think of an appropriate punishment for he and the female, purrlease let me know. Until I come up with something equivalent to the crime, I will be pouting.
Pouts and paw-pats, Lily Olivia
p.s. Purrlease join us this weekend for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Seeing all your cute photos might cheer me up a little.
Having a calico of my own who would never stand for such a lapse I can fully sympathize with your plight and pique. My advice? Humans are only human. Give your human a chance.She has already dedicated a page of her blog to you. And a crown! How many cats do you know who get a crown? I thought not. I bet she’s even given you a treat or two. What more can you ask? I would say….forgive her and move on!

Happy Belated Birthday mews and greetings!
Purr and furgive…afterall sometimes the slaves we use get bogged down, MOL!!
Humans are not as purrfect as we are so we have to forgive them. We hope you had a Happy Birthday anyway and wish you many more!
Oh Lily Olivia! That last photo is the poster child for the face of discontentment if we ever saw one! ;p
We are experts, EXPERTS! we say, on acts of revenge! We will be right over to help plan some daunting and exacting punishments for those mindless, foolhardy and harebrained humans! :p
Happy, happy, happy birthday sweetie! You don’t look a day over two! 🙂
the critters in the cottage xo
yoo r so beautiful, happy birthday
Lily Olivia I am flat out SHOCKED!!! We always thought your female human was a truly kind person…harummppfff! As if!!! How could anyone overlook you sweet friend. And as the most senior cat in the home, you should have first grabs on ever single pet box that shows up and you should get to keep your first selection all to yourself…paw hugs, Savvy
Oh, dear, Lily Olivia. Well, happy belated birthday and wishes for many more. Remember, to err is human, to forgive is feline! 😆 <3
Your humans forgot your 16th birthday ????!!!!!
OMC ! OMC! OMC!
Since I´m a very nice and well behaved kitty I have no ideas for a suitable punishment
for your humans 😉
But I have seen that my mom-person already have made and scheduled the post for my 5th birthday , so I guess that all humans have bad poorly memory 😀
HAPPY HAPPY belated 16th birthday , Lily Olivia !!
Lily Olivia I’m SO sorry that your birthday was missed – you deserve to be upset about that! Sixteen is a rather awesome age to be and to have the special day come and go with no acknowledgement? Well all I can say is your humans AND cat sibs have a WHOLE LOT TO MAKE UP FOR!!!! Please accept this special BIG SAMMY HUG as my gift to you……………you are loved………..really!
Lily Olivia! That is shameful! But Mommy’s are forgetful! After all, my Mommy forgot my Daddy’s Birthday a couple of years ago!
And THIS birthday mes will bes 17! So for a little while, wes is BOTH the same age!
But mes comed to sing the song (and mes hopes it makes yous feel a tad bit better!!

Awww….you look so cute pouting. Happy belated birthday! The punishment I usually get from my kitties is a pee on the bed- that makes for a lot of laundry.
Oh sweet Lily Olivia, Happy belated Birthday from all of us!
How terrible that your humans forgot your birthday, Lily Olivia! Maybe you could start with the back of disrespect, and THEN we could all come over for a house-trashing party. Would that help you feel any better?
Happy birthday, dear one. We lubs you!
Oh, that is despicable, Lily Olivia! Your photo says it all! I hope you come up with the purrfect punishment. Happy belated birthday.
Oh why is mom’s brain going to that old Molly Ringwald movie where everyone in her family forgot her birthday! You and Molly Ringwald are both cute, perky, sweet and you’ll get the cake and the boytoy at the end of the movie.
Happy birthday sweetie, now go and spread your fur everywhere until the humans throw you a pawty.
OH dear Lily Olivia…well we can only commiserate. Because Mom has done it to us I can’t count how many times. She has forgotten anniversaries, birthday special holidays you name she forgets. But we hope she makes it up to you somehow…you’re right it’s only once a girl turns sweet 16. Happy belated purrday.
You poor, sweet girl! You totally deserve a Sweet Sixteen party. Who can we report your peeps to???
Holy smokes!!! A forgotten birthday! Lily-Olivia, we are all with you on this one! Claw gouges, hisses, biteys — the “female” and “male” deserve it! Wait wait wait… OUR mom is now telling us that we shouldn’t encourage such behavior. SHE thinks that we should all be understanding…. whatever. Maybe some puke in the shoe?
Sampy sends millions of billions of kisses to Astrid along with lots of love! Hugs from all of us!
We always celebrate birthdays, but I never get them posted. Shame on us! This year, we plan to! In fact, Stella is the first this year, and it is coming soon!
Happy birthday to a very cute calico…YOU! ~xoxo~
Lily Olivia, your human deserves big demerits for not acknowledging your birthday. Afterall, how often does a girlcat turn sweet sixteen?? Let’s have a BIG party for you…complete with total house trashin’!! Happy Birthday!!!
Lily Olivia, you have every right to be mad, upset, grouchy and ready to run away. Your special day is very important and the humans should remember that. However……….we’ve decided if we are super nice to Mom when she forgets something, then she feels more guilty. MOL!!! Hang in there ‘cuz you are special and we all know it!
There seems to be nothing we can do when confronted by inadequate staff! This is why NUCAT a is so impawtant! We can mobilise and Marshall our forces and nap for change!! It’s extreme, but could be effective! A BIG belated happy birthday Lily Olivia, sending special pawpats and nose bumps to you Xox
Oh Nose…….Poor Lily Olivia. So sorry you were forgotten on your your very special day. Purrs, Hugs and Belated Happy Birthday wishes to you. Unfortunately it happens in large fur families. My 6 fur sibs and I have had this very same thing happen to us more than once. Alas….. there really isn’t much that can be done except allow them to make it up to you when they realize the error that has occurred and do it with a grace. They will feel so guilty that they will NEVER let it happen again.
Also sending loves to my sweetie Ms Lisbeth

Your FACE! MOL MOL! THAT is disgruntled if I have ever seen it!!! Happy Birthday sweet girl. You look adorable in your tiara!
How could your humans forget such an important event! Belated Happy Birthday to you.
Aw, happy belated birthday sweetie! We hope they make it up to you with lots and lots of your favorite treats!
LOL the memory excuse. You just can’t get good staff these days.
Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly
Gasp! Happy birthday sweetie. How can our humans ever forget our birthdays? M forgot mine a few months ago too. Herr excise was the same as the human who lives with you. It is a poor excuse. She owes you big time.
I says ya deserves a big pawty to make up for it!
Lily Olivia, just don’t ever purr for them for like a week. I’ve noticed that really gets to humans.
