Thank you all so much for the wonderful day! You really made our 11th birthday something special. We hope that you had as much fun as we did.
The party started with the arrival of our first guests, Grandma and Grandpa. They came with a stack full of goodies and even brought their own party hats! After that, it was a steady stream of guests arriving at our home in Italy. Thank you all for making the long trip!
Once everyone arrived safe and sound, it was time to "let the games begin". We started by breaking the group down into teams for a scavenger hunt. Here is the list of the items we were searching for:
1-ball of yarn
2- one white mouse with black spots (alive)
3- a dog bone
4- three feathers from a bird (also alive)
5- one can of sardines (NOT eaten)
The Diva Kitty Team won. On that team was Diva Kitty, the bunnies: Fiona & Orlando, Panther, Derby, Bob and Richard Simmons. They were the first ones to return back to our home with the list completed. Not an easy thing to accomplish when you consider the fact that no one around here speaks much English! Congrats to you all for a job well done!
Next on the list was pin the tail of the human. Mom thought it would be fun to put a spin on the the old "donkey tail" game by using a picture of her! Roscoe got confused while playing and ended up pining the tail ON our mom! Ouch! He says it was accident, since he was blind folded and Mom was just standing too close to the poster. I don't think it was an accident, but it sure was funny! Eric was the winner on that game when he got the tail square on the bum of the human! Good job Eric!
After that, we all went outside to take turns hitting the pinata. We laughed when we saw a giant papermache doberman pincher hanging from the tree! It was just for fun and not meant to offend our only canine guest. We took turns hitting it until Mini hit it so hard that it split open. Kitty treats showed down upon our heads like candy from heaven.
When it was over, Mom thought it would be a good time to eat lunch. But you know how cats can be after eating a few treats. We took a vote and decided that we should all have a nice long nap. So we all snuggled up (with the exception of the humans) on the outside terrace and took a long nice nap under the Italian sun.
Lunch was great, when we finally woke up to eat (long after noon). Mom had a veggie spread for the bunnies, Orlando and Fiona, and steak for Shefarra and the humans. The rest of us filled our big bellies with all kinds of fresh sea food. We ate until we were stuffed like turkeys on Thanksgiving day. Then what did we do? Well the cats took a bath (a lick bath NOT a tub bath) and then we all snuggled down for our second nap of the day. Of course Richard Simmons wanted us all to exercise after such a big meal, but we hissed a little and he left us alone to sleep.
Later our Mom had a prize contest. The winner were as follows:
Most Tolerant Guest- Shefarra, for being the only dog in a sea of cats.
Best Dressed- Gigolo Kitty, he always looks his best and is never caught naked. A role model to all cats.
Bravest Guest- Little Fiona and Orlando Bun for trusting that none of the cats would eat them.
Best Humans- Bob, Lisa, Grandma and Grandpa for spending the day in the animal house
Each of the winners recived a giant, fresh, sea bass. But Mom said that everyone who came to our party is a winner and so every guest went home with a romote controlled mouse!
Thank you all so much for the wonderful day!
Opus and Roscoe
