In the middle of the year it’s Hot where I live. Very, very hot most days. So during the day I can’t take my usual buggy rides and walks. As a Tigress Bengal cat I always like to go out and have adventures but during what my Human, that I call Papa, calls summer doldrums I can’t always go out and explore.
While walking indoors on my cat wheel I had a great idea. “Papa it’s my birthday soon so let’s have a party with my butterfly friend, my stuffed animals, and some special guests!” I meowed.
I told Papa to print up an invitation and I’ll read it to make sure it looks good and then we can text and email it out. And if I don’t like how it looks I’ll shred it for you.
Over the next day I helped Papa decorate. As we all know humans are not as good as animals when it comes to planning a party. You never hear anyone say “party humans” it’s always “Party Animals!”
Papa I’ll hang this really high up. Let me just grab it first. “Get the tape ready.” I meowed.
I decided to take a little nap before the party but just before I fell asleep one of the guests arrived early. It’s was a baby giraffe and she climbed right on top of me. You know how those giraffes always act at a party. I guess the party was starting!
As I was telling my stuffed animal toys where to sit, Papa brought in one of my outside friends. “Hi Ms Monarch Butterfly are you here for my party?” I meowed happily, “And did you bring a gift for me?”
We have some party snacks for everyone before opening my gifts. “Papa can we have more food bowls?” I asked, “because the giraffe and polar bear are drooling on my snacks. Yuck!”
I thought it was a good time to open my gifts. Mr. Squirrel gave me a dancing chipmunk. Squirrels always give gifts to do with chipmunks and chipmunks always give gifts to do with squirrels. I don’t know why. They are both nutty creatures I think.
Next I got a ball that lights up when you bounce it. “Papa look it’s flashing many different colors.” I meowed. Well I think it was my gift. Papa kept on bouncing it all around the house until I meowed for him to stop! Humans are so easily amused by flashy and bouncy things!
Suddenly there was a knock at the door. More surprise guests I thought. It turned out to be a delivery from my Grandmaw, Aunt and Uncle, and my 2 cousin cats! I read the card over and over to Papa.
It’s to bad that my relatives live so far away I thought. And just then Papa said “Stravyn do you want to video conference Grandmaw, your aunt and uncle, and your cousins?” I replied “Papa great idea!” And just when the video connected I heard everyone singing “Happy Birthday ” I couldn’t help but smile real big even though the singing hurt my ears a little. You would know what I mean if you have ever heard them all sing “Happy Birthday.”
“Papa show me the screen. I want to see what everyone is doing.” I meowed. Wow look at what everyone was eating.
We had cake also but when I looked at it I saw most of it missing. What had happened to it. I had to question my guests.
“Which one of you ate the 3 pieces of cake!” I meowed. The squirrel, who was shaking, said “I saw your Papa eat them all!”
Papa said its time to say goodnight to everyone. As I was saying goodnight I noticed something. I meowed, “Papa I didn’t get a gift from everyone.”
“It’s ok” I meowed to Papa. I have so many toys that I can share. It was time to go rest. Some guests don’t leave but they do make good pillows!!
