Happy 13th Birthday

Happy birthday to me!
Happy birthday to me!
Today I am a teenager!
Happy birthday to me!

Thank you, Miss Ann, for my birthday graphic!

I would like to welcome everyone today as you come to help me celebrate my 13th birthday, which means I am a teenager in cat years, but in human years, I am a little old Southern Belle Lady! Mom says I am actually older than her now! Hush Mom!

Please feel free to drink the Niptinis and eat the shrimp, chicken and tuna! I even have some Temptations and Greenies laying around that I will share (don't know about sharing the Topini treats, though)!

Let's see, which one to open first . . .

I just knew Cassidy and Mom were up to something the past few days when all of these packages arrived and Mom didn't open them immediately. She laid all of them on the couch for me to see which one I wanted to open first. She could have wrapped them in nice birthday paper, but she said she wanted me to be the first one to open them. Guess what? Cassidy was helping mom to keep a secret that she found my Topini Treats and my Stewart Fiber Formula Cat Treats and bought me a whole bunch for my birthday!

Mine! All Mine! Mom, hurry up and open them!

Look at what the kitties at "Floof and Fur had for me this morning! Isn't it wonderful?

For my special 13th birthday, Mom and I wanted to share some "then" and "now" photos with you.

My beautiful flat face profile!

Showing my floofy belly!

The "owl" eyes and "the look" that gets me all kinds of treats!

Me and My Mom Paula

Thank you for sharing my special day with me. Mom promised that she would come straight home after work and spend the entire evening with me! She said she wouldn't bring home any "office work" or "homework" to interfere with my special day.

Happy Birthday! I can't believe I'm the first to get to wish you a happy birthday. I know you're excited about all those Topini treats (and I don't blame you one bit for not sharing...) Can't wait for the party!

jenianddean said...

Aw ... Lux and I posted at the same time, so I guess I'm second, but that's OK, too.

Happy Birthday, beautiful Praline! Wow, a teenager! You're right around my age -- I'm about 12 or so (Mom's not sure because I showed up on her back porch as a stray kitty). I hope you have a wonderful day full of love and cuddles and treats. Lots of love to you, beautiful floofy girl.

Happy Birthday! Have a wonderful day! mom and I found a poem for your birthday present:

by Eleanor Farjeon

Cats sleep
Any table,
Any chair,
Top of piano,
In the middle,
On the edge,
Open drawer,
Empty shoe,
Lap will do,
Fitted in a
Cardboard box,
In the cupboard
With your frocks -
They don't care!
Cats sleep

Hi, Praline! Happy Purrthday. Chance brought me since I'm a little shy about meeting so many cats! Isn't that nice of him? I love your coloring; my stripes are more orange in some places and more gray in others, and I have mixed colored paw pads, too! My boy was born in 1995, too! Be glad you don't have to go to Middle School like him.
Purrs and licks,

Happy, Happy Birthday - and the photo of you with your gifts should be framed - you do look like you are shouting for joy!

Lorianna said...

Happy Birthday Praline! I hope you enjoy all of your yummy treats and best of all, an evening with Mommy Paula. I love all of your baby/big kitty pictures. You are just adorable! Billie will love to come to your party. Toeshee is grounded so he will not be able to attend. ;)
Cricket and Cody will be good, but Cody might get into the nip too much, so keep an eye on him. Billie loves treats and she'll probably fall asleep on Mommy Paula's shoes. :)
I hope you are having a wonderful day honey!
Love and Smoochies,

Happy Birthday Sweet Praline! What a beauty you are. As cute a kitten as the lovely lady cat you are now.

I think you should keep the Topini treats for yourself. There are plenty of others for us to share. What a wonderful party you put together.

Can I get you a niptini?

Junior said...
