I'm 8!

AYLAI got the BEST prezzie today! 

Question, what is the oddest thing you see in the cartoon above?

Now, on to the PAWTY! 

I'm 8.   TBT says that means 50 in Bein years.  NO WAY!  He's jokin, right?  *I* KNOW I will stay about 35 in Bein years fer another 5 REAL years at least.  So I'm gonna celebrate THAT today.  So celebrate with me...

We are gonna have some of the same games and such as last year, but I'm CHANGING them a bit.

The ladders will be outside, 
The bags will be in the kitchen,
The boxes will be in our purrsonal Cat Room,
The toys will be laid out on towels for convenient sniffing and selecting, 
There will be other games fer playin,
And the carpet climb will be over a hoop  (so ya gotta climb up the front and down the other side - no jumping up or off allowed),
Plus, of course there will be lots of foods and drinks...  A Meat Buffet,
Shrimps,
And Ham.

And Fancy Drinks...
So let the pawty BEGIN!

3 AM:  Well, the whole Punapippuri gang has arrived and that has started things off great.  A crowd already!  Summer and Flynn are here too and that is getting high-paws from all.  The boxes seem the hot spot so far...

6 AM Update:  Alasandra's cats and woofie have arrived.  And who is coming through the travel tunnel?  Why it is the Whiskeratti and The Sometimes Cats Herd You crowd.  

The joint is JUMPING!  

The big game right now is the boxes.  We are all trying ta jump into one just as another jumps out.  There are some fails, but we are accepting the shoving.  The bumped ones get tossed kibbles and that makes thing OK. And the unbumped ones get the boxes.  And that all gets changed at the next box jump...

9 AM UPDATE:  The Island Cats are here, Peaches and Paprika (cool names), and the Pilch gang, and Brian, too. The Punapippuri ninjas ran up the carpet with Ayla and it was darn near a 3-way tie,  But Ayla acknowledged that they barely got down faster than she did and gave them both high-paws.

She promises to do better the next time.  

Meanwhile, the ham and shrimps are going fast (dont worry, we have lots more).  And there is a lot of box-hopping going on...


3 PM UPDATE:  Wow, talk about a house rockin!  The neighbor cats complained, so we invited them in (that's Petey over by the Nip Bar and we're not sure WHERE Matilda is right now).  Well, there must be about 100 cats here at the moment so whom can keep track?  Nanuk, Jans Funny Farmers, and some KitKats have been here.    Ping, Jinx, and Boo have been around hopping boxes with the Celestial Kitties, the Colehaus Cats, and Quinn.  The Pretinha cats and The Swiss Cats are trying ta talk to each other (what ACCENTS, MOL).  And a whole lotta others we haven't gotten a chance ta sniff yet.  There is plenty more food, though TBT says he may have to order out for pizza (hold the crust, just bring the cheese and meats).  But seriously, we have lots of ham, shrimps, meats, and drinks.  And we can hear bags being pounced into all over the place.


And TBT has been REALLY busy keeping the 4 litter boxes clean, MOL!  Hes definitely gonna sleep fer 3 days after this pawty is over - which WONT be soon...  His next job will be opening the deck door.  Those allowed to be out (TBT has a list) will able to look fer mousies at 6 PM, some will be lalowed only on the deck (a 2nd list), and those who must stay inside will get a special surprise (not to be announced yet).


8 PM UPDATE:  OMC!  The baffroom door is shut an WE remember what that means.  Do you?  No, not TBT stuff (he is OUTSIDE the door)!  There is a special game planned in there for later that our guests got to play once before.  

Things have calmed down a bit (WHEW) and TBT got dinner fer hisself.  But he did have ta eat standing up by the kitchen sink cuz it was the only place he could protect his foods.  Not that anny of us kittehs wanted his salad, but there was a strong sniff of cooked cow fat.  So he tossed some around since he doesnt eat that part.  MOL, just picture 30 kittehs in a moderate small kitchen.  In the end, he spent 5 minutes cuttin up the cow fat and tossing it.  He said he wasn't worried about sanitation, since we kittehs pretty much licked the floors clean.

We think the baffroom surprise starts at 9 PM.

Meanwhile, the outdoor ladder event at 7 was a real spectaular event.  Ayla won that one from experience, but it was a close race (rumors that she was ALLOWED to win are entirely denied by all).  TBT originally had the idea of putting the ladders on the deck, but then he had this awkward thought of 30 cats up on the roof!  There are SOME problems he thinks it wise to avoid.  

The new foods offerred lately are whole poached chick-hens.  With Meowgaritas, and cream fer the young'ns.

10 PM UPDATE:  The big event has just occurred!  TBT opened the baffroom door and we all ran in to see what was up.  It was...  Mice in the bafftub!  This is entirely fer the cats who can't go outside. to hunt. 
An dont worry, these were all mousies that were raised as food fer snakes.  So they were doomed annyway.  An ya dont have ta kill anny iffen ya dont wanna.  Ya can just tap and sniff.  We think evry kitteh should at least tap and sniff mousies sometime.

Nellie just meowed the BEST Birfday song ever!  I am ever so proud to have heard it for me.   Thank you SO much Nellie...  It capped my special day.  ~ AYLA 

Meanwhile the mousies are about done in the the tub.  They squeeked some, but most of the cats who never met real mousies before were oh so thrilled.  

Midnight update:  The pawty is coming to a close.  The ladder games were fabulous, the box games were great, the bags were great fer jumpimg in an out of, the food was great.   But all you guests were the BEST part.  

Thank you all fer coming to my pawty .  You made it the best one EVER!

And fer anny who arrive late, TBT has made sure there is plenty of foods and drinks available.  He will stay up a while to make sure all kittehs are comfy and fed.  An iffen ya want ta join us nappin, you are welcome on the big waterybed or any of the other good spots around the house.   Feel free and we will all snuggle with you happily...

Happy birthday! 8 is a fantastic age and well worth celebrating. And we all know you guys host the best parties ever. on our way - and we'll bring a box or three.

Megan said...

Sounds like it's go to be another rib-tickler of a party at your place. That meat buffet is a sensation.

As for the cartoon, the pictures on the wall seem odd to me. And why is there a piece of pie under the sofa?

Happy birthday, Ayla! What an awesome party!

Flynn said...

Happy Birthday Ayla! Great party!! The oddest thing has to be the pie under the sofa hasn't been sampled by any of you.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Happy Birthday Ayla and thank you for inviting us to your party.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

TBT: the boxes might be the focus of attention so far but just wait until they get a few of those fancy drinks into 'em. The blokes will wanna make real fools of themselves trying to impress the ladies with their prowess on the carpet climb. I'm thinking that you may want to put some cushions on the floor around it to soften the inevitable falls.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

A great idea Megan. TBT has put cushions on both sides of the carpet climb!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We are going to get Socks to do the carpet climb as he is really good at that sort of thing. He once climbed straight up a pine tree, and he can shimmy up the fence post without any problems and they are 5 ft.

Scylla and Tuiren are stuffing their faces at the buffet. Tui is doing her best to look like a cat.

And Fenny is curled up in a corner outside, we will take him a plate, so no worries. BTW he makes a pawesome pillow if anyone wants to curl up on top of him. He and Tommy are catching up on the dog gossip.

But we all want to say. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AYLA!!!!!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We said "cats" out of habit, but all good friends are welcome. TBT says he has a hambone Fenny might like ta chew on if that is safe.

The Whiskeratti said...

Happy Birthday! and for ONCE we are right on time for the pawty!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

The Island Cats said...

Happy Birthday, Ayla! I know I'm all tuckered out from celebrating my birthday yesterday, but I'll get my energy back and party some more with you. ~Wally

Katie Isabella said...

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Fuzzy Tales said...

Happy birthday, Ayla! We're bringing Mr. Squirrel with us, for you to "play" with!

What an awesome party! Nicki can't wait to race up and down those ladders and yeowl his head off, and Derry might need a bit of "down" time in one of the boxes! (Don't let Nicki near the boxes, he "eats" cardboard.)

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

Happy Birthday Ayla! You are still a baby -very kittenish :) Great party- you kitties know how to have fun.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Happy birthday Ayla!!! Oh boy party time!
There's a jam up in the tunnel as Leo, Glitter and Cashmere try to be first in! Cashmere is all up on that carpet climb thing, even better than climbing the screen door! Glitter is looking for a comfy bed to half lay in and half hang off of, because that's how she rolls! Leo's trying to overcome his shyness by trying to talk to some girlkitties! And checking out the drinks, maybe that'll loosen him up enough to talk to the girls, like that guy on that big bang theory show! hope he doesn't have too many...

Terri said...

Happy Birthday, Ayla! What a pawty you have going on!

Jenna is bringing a new banana catnip toy for you. They are her personal favorite toys--she has two of them :)

We're wondering why a piece of pie is under the sofa? Looks like an eyeball under the table, but that could be just a striped ball.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Woo hooo look at the big party going on! Wowie this is fantastic. Ayla we want to wish you a very happy purrday and give you a box full of mousies to share with everyone! We can't wait to visit with Marley and Iza too!

Colehaus Cats said...

Happy Happy B-Day Ayla! We'd wish you a day filled with love and treats but you've got treats of all kinds here today already! We can't decide if we like the bags, the boxes, or that carpet the best so we're going to try them all. Two or three times! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Marilia Bavaresco said...

Happy Birthday Ayla!!!!

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

And we are crashing in to greet you with our Meezer MIAOWS at way past 215am so we are late...OOPS...something about meowmy here not even getting on the oanfuser till way after dark o'clock...

Happy Birthday Ayla!
Happy Belated Birhtday!

We say it just extends the fun, right?

And those mousies, OMC!! Eeek!

Did sometone spill their pie under the couch, after imbibing too much nipitini??

Megan said...

I don't know about you guys, but I'm exhausted. I felt just a little bit sorry for the mousies, although I could see that it was really something for the cats who don't normally get to play with them. As for napping - are you sure that TBT will be happy that you've invited all the cats up on his big waterybed? Might be best if you wait until he gets in first, then snuggle around him.
