Welcome to our pizza party! Today we are celebrating the third anniversary of when we moved to Italy! We just can't believe that it has already been three years since our paws first touched Italian soil. Where has the time gone?

Though we miss America, we just love living in Italy. The most popular question people (and animals) ask us is "what do we love best about living in Italy". There is just one simple word to answer that question, PIZZA!

Italy is the home of pizza and we just can't get enough of it. In Naples, six hours south of our home, is where the very fist pizza was made. If you ever get to Naples, you have to try a pizza there; it is guaranteed to be the best in the world!

Because we love pizza so much, we thought we would throw a pizza party for all of our friends, that that you guys can have a chance to taste the "real deal" and also visit us in Italy.

Please come inside, we have hired our human to work as our personal slave today (is that really so different than any other day). She is here to wait on us hand and paw, so if there is anything you need, just ask her.

We spent a lot of time making all sorts of pizzas; we have fish pizza, lizard pizza, crab pizza, pepperoni, ham and a seafood pizza. If you don't see anything you like, just ask and we can whip you up something special.

(to view the selction of pizzas, click on image)

It was a big job making all of these pizzas from scratch. Our Aunt Sassy arrived yesterday to help us get ready for the big day. Here we are in the kitchen making a fish pizza. It seems that I am doing all the work as Opus is just "supervising" and Sassy is eating more fish than she is putting on the pizza.

Over on the counter are all kinds of drinks. Please help yourself to anything you like, but you plan to drink alcohol, please be responsible. Anyone who would like to spend the night is welcome to do so, there are plenty of places to curl up for a warm nap.

The bathroom is out on the back terrace, just make your way through the small plastic door and you will find the liter box waiting on the other side. If you are a cat who is afraid of pet doors, just ask I will make the human open it for you.

We request that you don't smoke in the house, but you have need please step out onto the front terrace. It is also a great place to go cool down and get some fresh air after dancing.

And speaking of dancing, the living room is set up as a disco. Our male human is hard at work as the party DJ, if you have any requests just ask him.

Out side we have a game of bocce ball set up and ready to go. Bocce ball is a very popular game in Italy where you throw balls across the lawn without going pass certain line. The closest ball without crossing the line wins, but it can be hard as other players can knock your ball away with theirs. This might be a hard game as we cats like to chase the balls. I do ask the dogs not to grab the balls and run as it ruins the game.

Later this afternoon we will be taking a trip to the city of Pisa where we will play a game "Tip the Tower". Are you strong enough to push it over?

This eveing, in the family room, there will be a viewing of the BEST ITALIAN FILM EVER; "La Vita é Bella" (Life is Beautiful). Click the video below for preview.

The party will going on all day and into the night. You are welcome to stay as long as you like. Please feel free to bring guests, this is a celebration of our life in Italy and EVERYONE is welcome.

We hope you have a wonderful time and look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.

-Roscoe (and Opus too)

Hey I will be glad when the time get later in the day and the Americans and Aussies arrive. I wonder if everyone is sleeping in after Brandi's party. I'll keep the pizzas on the warmer. Until everyone gets here I did bring Opus and Roscoe's favorite treats from the USA, let's have a few.

Daisy said...

Wow, a pizza party! My favorite! I loves pizza pies. And the lizard pizza is delicioso! This is a very wonderful party. Congratulations on your third anniversary living in Italy.

I may have a drink, but I do not smoke. Except on the dance floor! Hahahahahah! Let's dance!

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Dragonheart- You are the first to arrive! Welcome! Help yourself to some pizza, we should have some more guests arriving soon.

Sassy- Thanks for keeping the pizzas warm. We forgot about the time change thing.

Daisy- Welcome, welcome! So glad you like the lizard pizza, we made it just for you. Just grab a drink from our female human. If you don't see something you like, we will make her go to the store. Looking forward to seeing you, someone call the fire department! Yeah!

Opus and Roscoe,

Happy Third Year in Italy!

I love your parties, and I love that you think of the doggies too! You are both so thoughtful, and such great hosts! I personally will enjoy some pepperoni pizza, YUM!! And don't worry, I'll behave around the balls... actually those are hard and heavy so they're not much fun for me anyhow. My teeth are not doing so well... however, if the kitties start playing games with tennis balls I cannot guarantee I will be able to control the urge to chew! :-)

Love, Shefarra

PS Tank, Dubs, and Lola are with Dad right now so mom (Annie) says she'll let them know about the party!

G and G A said...

Wow, what a party! I think I'll have a slice of the pepperoni pizza and leave the nemo pizza for the furry ones. Next I will hit the dance floor if anyone wants to join me.

G and G A said...

Anonymous said...

Those pizzas are divine. I'm glad you have plenty to drink as I tend to get thirsty after pizza. However, I hope there is non alcoholic stuff there. I do not like the alcohol.

I'm looking forward to tipping the tower...!

Shaggy and Scout said...

Holy Moly do you guys ever know how to put on a party!!! The pizzas look delish and the specialty pizzas are great! And you thought of everything from servants to litter boxes!
We think we'll hang around awhile and sample all the pizzas, then take naps in your comfy nap places and then get up and sample the pizzas again!!!!!!!!

When we go on a tour of the town can we go see all of the Dante stuff you told us about? Our Dante would love to learn new things about his namesake!

Just Ducky said...

Finally, mum turned on the puter so I could get to the party.

Happy Day Opus and Roscoe. You were furry brave to take off with your human to a new country. Three years!!

It has been a pleasure to get to know you over the past few years.

Now, I would like a crab pizza and a niptini please.

I will join the gang and chat for a while. Ciao.

YuM-yUm-YUM... Maybe DJ Daddy has also romantic dance music for Karl and I??

The game "Tip the Tower" was wonderful and also good for my shape... so many parties lately...;

Momo xoxo

Toffee K. Ripple Fuzzypants & Feline American Angels said...

Oh, YUM! All of the pizzas look especially delicious, so we're having a hard time deciding which to try first! Our favorite toppings here in California are pepperoni with jalapeños ... But ham pizza is good, too.

Hmmm ... Maybe we'll play bocce while we decide where to start pizza-wise.

Thanks for inviting us!
DMM and the Feline Americans

Black Cat said...

What a great party! Think I'll leave the fish and lizard pizzas for the furries because I can't bring myself to eat little Nemo and I think lizard might be a bit yucky for a bean, but they all look very delicious!

Happy 3rd Italy anniversary:) xxx

Tara said...

Pawsome party! That pizza is fabulous! What a great place!

Tara and Kavan

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Leslie said...

Hello! Hello! We have come to the party! This is Trixie and Pyewacket. Tigger will be along later.

Great party!
Oh, and we just went to the tower in Pisa with Her last month.
Note to self - get Her to post the pic!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Hi Tigger, Trixie and Pye, nice to see you here. Time the Australian contingent arrive. Pye, go easy, OK? Don't get overexcited and make yourself sick.

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Oh, I forgot! I brought you a whole bag of lizards. I was out hunting in the garden yesterday and being spring, there were lizards galore!

Quinn and Angel brandi said...

And, even though I am pretty tired from our party last night, how could I resist a little more partying with friends and of course, I have never tired of hamm pizza. My, this is good stuff...

Beau said...

Hey Opus and Roscoe!! Great party! The pizzas are delicious!!
Sorry to just be getting here, mom lost my anti-bio-tics and I've been enjoying her look for them like crazy!!

Derby- We were wondering where our Colt fan friend was. How did the game go (or hasn't it been on yet)? Thanks for making the trip to Italy. Enjoy the pizza and niptini.

And thanks so much for the wine!

Daisy Mae Maus- We love pepperoni, but not sure about the jalapenos. HOT! Did you know that the word pepperoni is Italian for peppers (as in red, green, and yellow)? Enjoy the party and have fun with the bocce ball game!

Missy Blue Eyes, Momma Dinah, KC, Sol, Nigel, BJ, Earl, Bond, Autumn, Momma Tortie, Baby Tortie, Baby Tuxie and Baby Socks - Thank you all so much for coming to our pizza party!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy- Thank you so much! Enjoy the dance floor and pass us a glass of that cat nip wine!

G and G A said...

This is one great party! I am trying to find Daisy because I hear she wants to dance with me. I will be in the room with the dancing. Come on down. After I am done dancing I am giving free back rubs and rubs behind the ears, those that feel like puring feel free to do so.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Black cat- Thank you for being here. Please don't eat anything that doesn't look good. Help yourself to the drinks and let us know if you need anything. Wanna dance with us a bit?

Tara- Thank you so much for making the trip to Italy! We are glad that you are having fun. Need a refill on your drink?

Opus and Roscoe

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Cats the musical, I love it! I'm just going to grab one more of those yummy fish pizza and I'll be there. Don't start before I get there. Victor Tabbycat isn't here. I think he said somewhere that he mightn't make it here today but I may be wrong!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Did I hear back rubs and ear rubs? Yes, yes! I'm putting my name down. I also like chin rubs and tummy rubs. SS tell me I am too demanding and talking too much. Must be the catnip! No? I talk that much at home too? Oh, well! I shall stop for a while.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Hi Grandma! Glad you are still here! It is so nice to have an extra human in the house to help out. Did you find Daisy? She wanted to dance with you.

Opus and Roscoe

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Momo-Don't stop! We love to hear you talk! We start the movie without you. Could you grab us a slice of pizza while you are in the kitchen please.

Opus and Roscoe

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

I'm bringing in a whole tray of pizza, so that we don't have to keep ducking out for them. The lizards? Oh, no lizards survive after I'm through with them. SS froze them so they remain fit for consumption. Seems to be a few more tails than heads there.

Grandma can come to the den when she is finished with the dancing and start the rubs. OK, OK, SS stop nudging me! She thinks I'm being demanding and should mind my manners.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Well guys, is almost midnight and we are old cats. We think it is time to lay down and take a cat nap. Don't worry, the party isn't over though. Keep enjoying yourselves and we will check in again in a few hours (or in a few, few hours). We gave our humans lots of espresso, so they will be up all night to take care of our guests. The male will continue to play music, so just ask him for your favorite songs. The female is here to wait on you, so if you need anything she will be happy to get it for you.

Thank you all for coming, will check back again soon after we have had a couple of z's.

Have fun!
Opus and Roscoe

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Momo- we will join you for the movie and snacks, though we might have to close our little, eyes for part of the movie. We are starting to get sleepy. Maybe Gradma can use her other hand to pet us while she is petting you.

See you in the family room for the show!

Samantha & Mom said...

Yippie!! We love Pizza! Thanks for inviting us Roscoe and Opus!! We are having a wonderful time. Happy 3rd Anniversary in Italy!! It is such a beautiful country! We are ready to boggie all night long!!

Cynthia Rae said...

I was just wondering if I could anyone anything before the movie starts?

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Ciao Samantha and Tigger- Welcome to the party. We are just getting ready to watch a movie. Grab a slice of pizza and come on in and join us. Of course you can always dance or play bocce ball if you prefer. So glad that you are both here!

Opus and Roscoe

Sassy Kat said...

After the movie Cats we will be show Milo and Otis. Those that want to join us welcome, come on in even if you are sleepy and take a CAT NAP, dogs can take a cat nap too, ha

G and G A said...

Wondering if there are any other humans that can help me with the rubs until I get too sleepy?

Mickey's Musings said...

Boy!!! When you said italian pizza was the best ,you weren't kidding!!!! This is one great party!!!Woot! Woot!

The Cat Realm said...

I brought lots of fresh, homegrown nip - I put it at the food table - everybody go help yourself! No, no problem at customs, I put it in Mrs. OZ suitcase, hahahahahaha....
Watch Emil - he is mischievous and likes to POUNCE on cat's backs whenever they do not expect it at all!

Artsy Catsy said...

Ciao, Opus & Roscoe, and thanks for inviting us! We've been wanting to come to Italy, since our human mom's daughter, Tiffany, lives in Rome. After the party we're going to dash down to the Eternal City to see her and maybe prowl through a few ruins! Two of our staff cats, Fred & Holly, are there in Rome with her. I'll tell them to put a post up on our blog so you can see them!

You're right about the pizza in Italy. Our mom gorged on pizza during her last visit to Rome and now she says she can't even eat America's excuse for pizza!

Buona Sera,
Rocky & the Artsy Catsy staff

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Trust Karl to be doing something sneaky like that! Not that I am ungrateful for the catnip. Nap? Who needs a nap when there is so much going on? Besides this is only 11AM for us Aussiecats! SS says I can stay here while she works and she'll call back once in a while to make sure I'm not up to any mischief. Mischief? Moi? Not likely (Sniggers).

Milton said...

Hi Opus and Roscoe!
Thank you for inviting me. Congratulations on your 3rd anniversary.

Say, that pizza really does look great! Well, there goes my slimming diet. LOL!

Just Ducky said...

Ok the football is over. I have good news and bad news.

Good news - the Packers won

Bad news - the Colts lost, to New England. Bummer for you guys.

But time to drown the sorrow. Another niptini please and more pizza.

Ahhh, that niptini tasted good. Another please.

Juno said...

Opus and Roscoe!! What a great pawty!! I am still here to enjoy greeting your friends while sampling some drink and pizza!! Momo-cat arrived here safe after me. I've never seen lizards in my life, Momo! I saw my doggie friend Asta! I am glad she made it!

I am glad you said I am your favorite dog with a blog. :) :) I'll be around here for a while if it's ok with you!

Momo xoxo

Sassy Kat said...

OK, Ok, OK, here is what's up next. Movies all night, pizza is on the warming trays, Karl has the nip, dancing has slowed down since the neighbors complained that the music was getting too loud, pillows are all around the house for those who want to snuggle down.

Movies to be shown-Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Cat In The Hat, Batman & Catwoman, (the following for our doggie friends-Old Yellow, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie Go Home, (for all the classic-Gone With The Wind.

Make yourselves at home, time for this cat to get shut eye.

See you all in the morning, nite.

Sassy Kat said...

Oh forgot, first one up please warm up the milk and plug in the coffee pot for the humans.

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Hi Momo, Here MoMo here. More confusion for all concerned with this type of greetings between us. I'm watching movies in the den, come and join me and we can snuggle up. SS has left me here and will call back later for me. Asta is a nice woofie! Why is Charlie not here?

Alexi said...

Opus and Roscoe,

I'm sorry I'm so late. My beans were out of town and I was in charge while they were away. This is a great party! If there's any crab pizza left, I'd like some of that. Also, I'm interested in bocce ball. Hope I spelled it correctly. How do you play it? I'm might dance with someone if they teach me how to do some of those Italian dances.


Tiger Lily said...

Happy Third Anniversary in Italy! I'm so glad you like living there -- it looks as if you'll be there for a long time!

Is there any pizza left? I'm sorry we're late but Mom isn't feeling very well today. For a while there we didn't know if we'd even make it!

Jemima, Zeke, Sushi, Tiger Lily and Ruckus

Tiger Lily said...

Thank you for inviting us to your pizza party Opus and Roscoe. We took a tour of your lovely apartment -- it's beautiful! The pizza was delicious, especially the crab!!

Mom says we must leave now. Bye!

Spike William and Angels China Cat and Willow said...

Happy 3rd Anniversary in Italy! It's lovely here and we're sorry to be so late. Willow and I will just get some of that delicious looking pizza a try! Oh, a movie sounds great too.

It is so nice to meet both of you, Roscoe and Opus!

Purrrrrs, China Cat

Willow said...

How wonderful - a pizza party to celebrate for 3rd anniversary in Italy! It looks like you are enjoying yourselves indeed! Thanks for inviting us - China Cat suggested the lizard pizza. We had the lizard stew at Daisy's so lizard pizza sounds great!

It's so nice to meet you both, Roscoe and Opus!

Purrrrrrrrs, Willow

Hi Opus and Roscue! Happy anniversary! Am I too late for Tower Tipping?


Islay said...

Happy anniversary guys! Thanks for inviting me - even though I'm a dog, I gave up chasing cats years ago. This pizza is grrrreat! I love pizza (I have been known to attack the pizza men that come to the door occasionally, but only because they smell like pizza! This is a great party; sorry I'm a bit late; I missed my flight from wherever I was - see? an old dog's memory is not too good,. Anyway, I'm having a barking good time, love the puppacino!

Do stop by my place some time - the berlin tour is still on and we've had all kinds of animals along.

Cheers & ciao!

Happy Third Anniversary in Italy. The pizza looks delicious. I'll grab a couple of slices of pepperoni pizza and head to the movie room. I'm available for giving scritches and rubs to any dog or cat who wants them.

Grandma- Looks like you had a great time on the dance floor. You and Daisy sure tore it up! Sorry, but we thinks you is the only human, other than our slaves, at the party.

Mickey- Glad you like the pizza and so happy to have you here. Come on in and enjoy the moive!

Karl- Once again, you came through with the nip. We would have bought some, but they don't sell it here. Thought about growning our own, but we don't want to end up in Kitty jail. We here the ITalian cats there can be mean. Thanks for sharing and glad that you brought Mrs. Oz and Emil to join in on the fun.

Rocky and the staff- CIAO! Wow, your humans are in Rome! They should come up for the party! We are so happy to have you here and look forward to seeing the photos of Italy!

Momo- Don't you know that ANY time is naptime in our house! You must be a young cat, but believe us when we say that as an older you will sleep much more. Well, we might also be a little lazy too! Hehehe

Beezer- There will always be tomorrow, start you diet then (of course in our house, tomorrow never comes)!

Derby- How could share such bad news with us! Well, I guess it is better than telling a lie, but we are so sad the Colts lost. I guess you can't win them every time. Thanks for the report!

Momo - We are so happy that you are having a great time Momo. See, cats aren't so bad, are we? Help yourself to some more pizza and stay as long as you like!

Sassy- Thanks for your help. Moives all night sounds great, but we aren't sure we can stay awake that long. You guys party on though!
Love the list of moives you chose and our humans thank you for the coffee reminder!

Alexi- Don't worry about being late. You are never too late to join our party! So glad that you could make it. There is plenty of pizza still left and tons of cold drinks. Most of us are watching moives in the family room, but there still are some crazy cats on the dance floor. Enjoy the night and stay as long as you like!

Tiger Lily- There is a ton of pizza in the kitchen. Sassy has been good about keeping it warm. There are also some other snacks that our guests brought along with wine and other cold drinks. Come on in and have some fun. Glad you are here!

Jemima, Zeke, Sushi, Tiger Lily and Ruckus- We didn't mean to leave the rest of you guys out. There is still lots of pizza, please help yourselves. Sorry to hear your human isn't well and we hope she is back on her feet soon. Stay as long as you like and enjoy the party!

China Cat and Willow-Welcome, welcome! It is so nice to meet you, thank you for coming. There is a lot going on. We are starting a moive, some are dancing, while others are out on the terrace chatting. Please come in and make yourselves at home.

Persephone and Jack- Nice to see you! Glad you could stop in. Get yourselves something to eat and drink. Too late for the tower tipping? NO such thing!

Orable and Charely- So glad you could come. As you can see, there are a few other dogs here. Isn't it nice that we all get along so well! We would love to come on your Berlin tour! Can't wait!

Fluffy Tribe- If you like pizza then you came to the right place! Eat your hearts out and thanks for coming!

Karen Jo- So nice to have another human come to the party. OUr Grandma was worried that she might have to do all the rub'in! Enjoy some pizza and come snuggle up with us for a movie. Thanks for being here!
