Slumber Party


Hello everyone! Welcome to my 14th birthday and to my special Slumber Party. The response to my invitation was overwhelming with over 60 kitties staying the night in our special Southern home in South Carolina. Mom has cleaned off the beds, pulled out the pillows, popped some kitty korn, spread out the nip toys, put in the kitty movies and even the valerian root ice pack for my special guests!
This is my baby picture from 1995. Mom says she never gets tired of seeing my cute little face with the big, "owl" eyes! I've come a long way in 14 years and hope I have many more. I may be an "old" ladycat, but I've still got lots of spirit and spunk.

For those of you who could stay overnight, I hope you enjoy the party and take home a treat from my birthday baskets.

I just can't find my Topini Treats in the U.S. anymore!

Everyone had a blast at the party and now it's time to sleep. Now everyone knows that not all kitties sleep at a slumber party. I hope you enjoyed your visit and can come to my party next year.

Have a look at all of my overnight guests.

A few woofies wanted to drop by! That's okay because they can patrol the grounds for introoders. I'm not sure how much patroling will get done since Khyra and Sydney appear to be pooped! I was thrilled that Khyra could join me since he is so well known in the CB. Mr. Jones, Spot and Sydney are my cousins and are always welcome. Mom was so glad to see them!

I think Bennett was keeping a watchful eye that no one would get in his special tent. Armani was trying to get belly scritches from my mom! Mom couldn't resist!

Now, this group of kitties I need to keep an eye on because while everyone was asleep, they were watchful. Hope no one gets their underwear put in the freezer. Hee! Hee! That's what mom says used to happen when she went to slumber parties as a teenager.

Now, I just love Miss Zoey from Zoolatry, but she had to out do everyone with her special sleeping bag. She also insisted that she had to put curlers in her hair to compete with Daisy. Wonder why Zoey left Maggy home?


Don't you just love Siena and Chilli snuggling up together. It was an honor for them to come from across the pond to attend my party. Better keep an eye out for Lester because he is wide-eyed and up to no good. I think Mr. Tigger got into the stinky goodness!

The Friends FurEver group came up a day early to help me prepare for the Slumber Party. I think they are a little exhausted, but I appreciated their help.

Now, this is a sleep group of kitties. I decided to join them to catch a little cat nap.

I think Samson got hold of my Valerian Root Ice Pack! He's out for the night!

The crew from Peggy's Place is keeping a watchful eye on everyone (except for Isis and Bob, who needed a nap after playing with the nip cigar!). Reese insisted on bringing her "Reese Box" to sleep in, but she let me try it out for a few minutes. Wasn't that nice of her?

Little Melvin's mom let him come over tonight as long as my mom chaperoned him since he isn't a mancat yet. Isn't he adorable? Minchie and Pandora just curled up and made themselves right at home!

Maggie Mae and Saylor got caught trying to sleep in mom's bed!

Several kitties are international travelers and made their way to the United States. Ginger Jasper came from England, Huffle came from Australia and Jasmine came from Brazil. Don't tell anyone, but Gemini tried to sneak in Chey for a few minutes, but she had to leave before anyone found her. I think she took my Siamese pillow with her for cover!

Fin was the first to grab the sink for the night and dared anyone to take it from her. She is a senior ladycat like me!

Of course, then we have the "fancy ladycats" (except for Ollie) for the evening that insisted on bringing special PJs and spa attire. Miss Daisy was the hit of the evening with her lounging robe! Don't know why Ollie wanted a curler in his hair. I think he was jealous of Daisy's curls, too!

I'm so glad Miss Billie was able to join me. She turned 14 this year, too and she was giving me lots of advice. Then, Bhu showed up! I think he is keeping an eye out for Romeo and Ginger Jasper!

Don't you love Eric's stuffed twin?

Dante and Domino insisted on wearing special PJs for the party. Dylan likes to sleep in the "raw". Mr. Tuck is just plain tuckered out!

Mom just found Stripes and Penjy hiding in the back closet. I must confess, I showed them my favorite hiding place. So glad the two of you could join us.


Mom went outside to get some more litter and she found Emma sleeping on the cabinet in the storage room. She invited Emma inside to join the others. Doesn't she look like she has been up to something?


Uh oh! Looks like someone is continuing the relationship that started on AS THE PAW TURNS. I am snuggled between my two main mancat squeezes: Ginger Jasper and Bhu. What a wonderful evening!

Thank you to everyone who helped make my 14th birthday so special!

Sorry we couldn't stay. Fenris felt like he should be home guarding Mommy and I (Socks) wanted to take the chance without the pest (er I meant the girls) home to relax. We just wanted to drop off the girls so we were sure they got there safely and pop in to wish you a Happy Birthday before heading home. ~Socks & Fenris

Happy 14th Birthday, Sweet Praline!!! You are a very special kitty and you deserve this big blowout party. I hope you like the real cans of tuna that the 3-Ds brought with them.

What an impurresive line-up of guests you have! This just shows how much efurryone LOVES YOU, Praline!

Cory said...

Oh what a fun party...glad I brought some nip for everyone to share...but how did you know I was trying to steal underwear to put in the freezer? Am I that transparent? Glad your mom left out some of her socks so I could carry them off and sing to them in the middle of the night!

Happy Birthday Sweet Praline. Hope this is the bestest birthday ever!

What a great gathering of kitties, Sweet Praline! We couldn't stay long, but were glad to have stepped in for a minute. Long enough to wish you a Happy Birthday, and check to see if there were any left-unlicked cans of tuna. That's our favorite!

Happy Birthday Sweet Praline!! Today is Kirzon's birtday too so he is sending extra special birthday wishes to you!

We are very sad we couldn't make the slumber part (stupid computer) - especially Lola. She would have loved to hang out with the girlcats for a while and get away from all her brothers!

We hope you have a wonderful special day!!

Happy Birthday Sweet Praline! Miss Billie had so much fun hanging out with you and all of the other kitties and woofies. What a great party! The treats were delicious and everyone was so nice. Miss Billie slept very well and enjoyed hearing all the latest news about who is dating who. ;)
I hope Mommy Paula enjoyed the white chocolate peanut butter cups. :)

Boy did we have fun. We met so many new friends and partied hardy. Jeannie says she had so much fun she can't remember anything. Romeo and Bob kept checking out all the lady kitties. Summer and Babe (being senior cats)stood by the wall and watched all the fun going on. And of course Isis made a pig of herself eating and drinking way too much. She is still walking funny. Thanks for such a good time and Happy Birthday Sweet Praline :)
