Happy St. Patrick's Day 2014

I want to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day,
along with the Cats Who Came Before me:
Alice, China Cat & Willow
May your days be touched by a
bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song
in your heart,
and warmed by the smile of
the people you love.

Willow's 10th Birthday and China Cat's Gotcha Day

Today would have been Willow's 10th Birthday. 
She went to the Rainbow Bridge last year on March 30, 2013. My Food Lady still miss her so much that she wanted to post the pictures she took of her and her 3rd Birthday Cake... Willow's Birthday was also China Cat's Gotcha Day. My Food Lady found her at her office in 1998 when China Cat was about 6 months old. She went to the Rainbow Bridge last year on June 30, 2013. She is also missed very much! 
 sMy Food Lady is so happy to have me here now. I just turned 1 on January 30th and my Food Lady says that I am a very loving and playful classic ginger tabby.

This is from Willow's Blog from February 2007:
So it was finally my birthday
and I couldn't even use the computer
to show all the fun that I had on my birthday.
My Food Lady made me a beautiful cake
that is like a caricature of me.
I slept on the big bed for a while with China Cat
and she washed my face for me
so that I would look wonderful in my birthday pictures.
It snowed on my birthday
and I went outside to look at it
and actually sat down in the snow
in my screened-in porch.
China Cat and I were each given
the leftovers of tuna cans.
I had decided that I wanted tuna
for my birthday dinner
so my Food Lady chose
to make a Tuna Noodle Casserole
for their dinner.
The Big Janitor really likes that Tuna Noodle Casserole.
The tuna was so good but I actually had to do a lot of washing
after to get every tuna taste!
The last part of the birthday evening
I was given very fresh catnip -
Here am I rolling and loving every nippy smell of it!
I like being 3!!!

Today is Groundhog Day

It's Groundhog Day today!
I was really hoping that the groundhog named Phil would tell me that Spring is on the way. My screened-in porch is too cold to stay out very long watching birds and squirrels. Then I realized that you cannot read what was written
by my picture so here it is:
"More Winter," says Phil!
Spike William had hoped to wake up
to Punxsatawney Phil forecasting
that Spring was on the way...
he decided to stay in bed when
he found out that there will be
6 More Weeks of Winter!
And it says under the picture of that Phil guy:

"Punxsutawney Phil is held by Ron Ploucha after emerging from his burrow Sunday on Gobblers Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa., to see his shadow and forecast six more weeks of winter weather.(Photo: Gene J. Puskar, AP)"

Spike is 1 Today

Hey, Everyone! Guess What???????
It's my birthday today and I am now One Year Old!
I am officially a Cat and no longer a Kitten!
I am just so excited to be a Cat! My Food Lady told me that for my birthday today I will get some special birthday treats. They are called Fancy Feast Appetizers and she always bought them for China Cat and Willow when it was their birthdays. I can't wait to taste them! I will also get some presents tonight! I hope that I get some catnip toys!!! I love catnip!!!

I have a little purple ball that I like to get wet in the water bowl. Then I take it and drop it, all cold and wet, at my Food Lady's feet. She picks it up and throws it down the front hallway toward the front door. I run like the wind after it and bring it back to her to throw for me again! It is so much fun! We have been playing this game for about 30 minutes this morning! I am already loving my birthday and I love when my Food Lady plays with me!
Here is my birthday picture, which was also featured on the Thursday Linkies at the Cat Blogosphere today. Thanks to you, Mo, for featuring me on my 1st Birthday, along with Angel Keiko and Luna celebrating their birthday at Would You Like Some Fur With That Wine and a Gotcha Day being celebrated by Calle and Halle at Jacqueline's Cat House.
I thought everyone would like to see some birthday pictures of China Cat and Willow, the Cats Who Came Before me. I wish they were still here and my Food Lady really misses them. I'm glad she brought me here last year and I know that I make her very happy. I think I will let her throw my purple ball some more before she has to go to work!
Here was Willow's 9th Birthday, last year.
This was China Cat's 16th Birthday, last year.

My Thankful Thursday

Today is Thankful Thursday and I am thankful for so many things! Today I am particularly thankful for my ham-mick from Forty Paws. China Cat & Willow received it a few years ago and I think it was for Secret Paws! 
Speaking of Secret Paws, I am so thankful for my Secret Paws presents which I received from Max the Psychokitty and Buddah.  I opened them a few days after Christmas and there are lots of pictures taken of me having so much fun. My Food Lady promised that we would finally post all the terrific gifts that we received this weekend. I won't tell you all of her excuses for taking so long to show everyone my very first Secret Paws gifts......... 
Anyway, here you can see how I am enjoying my Thankful Thursday very thankfully!
There's nothing like a cozy ham-mick for an afternoon nap!
