Welcome to the Party!

Chatham is 20 years old today!

(I forgot to say that the party is an all-day affair:
please feel free to come and go as you like!)

I had to check to make sure Cat Couch used the right stuff.
Cat Couch and Dad made cakes and cupcakes. Dad is taking the cake to his work. Cat Couch will take cupcakes to the Vet, the Guest Vet and the Emergency Vet.

(Granny, there is plenty of cupcakes for you here, too!)
Silly Cat Couch had to put fake flowers on me and a stupid hat:


But then she put the hat on Salem, too! Heehee!

But now everything is ready for my party! Cat Couch says that we all can go and do whatever we want in the house today. She has stocked up on yummy foods, toys, soft beds and pillows and borrowed lots of climbing cat furniture. Dad put food in the birdy feeders, so we'll have plenty to watch out the windows (the squirrels will come, too, and they do alot of chasing each other!).

Since I'm so old, I am likely to nap a good bit, but don't let that keep you away and having fun. I can sleep through anything.

Oh, Happy Purrday. We are comin ofur. Mittens am comin too, she said she feels up to it, but would luv to snuggle wif you as she isn't up to much. She says a bisit with you is long overdue. Precious promises to be good, but, that is debatable. Maybe Pepi will come so she has someone to get wild and crazy wif. Mistrie is staying home, although she said she may stop by and say HB.See you soon........

20 is a major milestone for a cat. You can tell that the humans take good care of you.

Try to not bite anyone for making you wear that silly hat.
