Mommy is Old!


Today is our Mommy's Birthday!
She is eleventy-seven years old today, in Cat years.

We celebrated last night, and it was funfunfun!  Daddy made one of her favorite meals for supper and we got some too.  Orange Roughy, (HEAVENLY)  lima beans, (yuk!) and Velveeta Mac-n-Cheese (yummy cheese sauce!).
Afterwards there were presents and dessert!

Mommy kept making moany noises eating the was chocolate with fudge filling and chocolate whipped cream frosting.
She ate a GREAT BIG piece!
Mommy is a pig where cake and chocolate are concerned.

Now we know that you think our Mommy's name is "Trish", but Daddy never calls her that.  He calls her "Sheeb".  One day a long time ago they were in the grocery store, in line, when they realized they'd forgotten something (prolly Cat food).  Mommy skittered off to get it, and Daddy said "Run little Sheba, run like the wind!"  She's been Sheeb ever since.

Here's the cards Mommy got!
Us Cats e-mailed Grandma Cat, and asked her to pick out a card for us and a little gift that we saved up from our allowances.  This is the inside of one of them that we all signed.  Writing is hard!

We got Mommy this figurine to help her speak the language.

This card is from Daddy and Felix, it plays the Tears for Fears song "Everybody Wants to Rule the World".
heh heh.

Here's the inside of the smoking kitty card...we laughed our (figurative) sox off at the kitty who looked like Felix, so he got hissy and wouldn't sign it!  That's why he signed the one from Daddy.

Sometimes we're a little hard on Felix, he's such a curmudgeon.
Sorry, Felix.

Daddy bought Mommy a SNUGGIE!!!!
She's always cold, and it's fleece, so we expect we'll be spending a lot of time snuggling on the snuggie.

Mommy put on a red clown nose for fun!
She's silly.

Lastly, her Mom & Dad sent her a stunning sterling silver necklace which she absolutely loves.

Mommy, we love you!
Happy Birthday!

  1. AW! Happy Birthday to Mom-Cat Trish!! We think you'll be fighting everyone for that snuggie: how long before 12 cats are inside (we assume Felix would stay out) ?
    Have a great day, and we hope they go easy on you for once x

  2. Happy Birthday Sheebie!

    So now that your mom has a snuggie, are all of you going to snuggie in there too?

  3. Your Mommie is NOT old. She's the same age as me now :) I totally understand being cold all the time. I sleep under a heated blanket AND the down comforter!

    Stay warm and lots of Happy Birthday fishes!!!

  4. My human and I agree - your human had a totally pawsome birthday! I bet you will all enjoy the Snuggie along with her! Tell her happy birthday from everyone at my house!

    (Even the dog.)

  5. That sounds like a memorable birthday all round. Daddy did a good job finding so many great Cat Kards for you to give your Mom, and for the chocolate cake. Moms like stuff like that.

  6. Happy Birthday! It sounds like it was a wonderful day. I bet those kitty cats of yours will like that snuggie as much as you do.

  7. Happy Birthday to your Mommy! It looks like she had a great birthday celebration with the cake and great kitty cards! That snuggie looks purrfect for keeping her and several kitties warm at the same time!

    Siena & Chilli

  13. Concatulations on getting your mummy this far. A hint: old mummies need lubrication. Take one of those lemons from the tree, mix it with sugar and rum and a dash of water, heat it, and pour it into the mummy. It will warm the cockles of her heart. When she's had 3, ask for extra treats. guaranteed she'll be furry generous.

  14. Hey, hey your Mom is definitely not old!!!
    It is simply "wise one" getting wiser!!

    Happy Birthday Trish!!
    You're beaming with happiness and kindness even in your snuggies!!

    Many Happy Returns of the day ... heheeh Sheba!

  36. Happy birthday Little Sheebie!
    Way back when our mom (her name is Lynne) was 3 years old she would stand at the top of the basement steps when her mommy would go downstairs and yell "Lynnie too!" And she has been known as Lynnie Too ever since. Funny how that works.

    Looks like a great day was had by all!
