One More Day!

Just wanted to say... one more day 'til my sister Brainball's Gotcha Day Party (on MaoMao's blog) -- I'm starting to feel downright festive!

And on August 1, I'll be on MaoMao's blog at Brainball's party -- everykitty is invited, and I hope to see you there! -- but I'll be back here on my own blog the following day *smile*.

And love and whisker-kisses, as always, to my Mickeybear!

Added later: Guess what. In the wee o'dark thirty hours, something very special happened. I have mentioned on this blog before that Brainball and I sometimes have our differences and usually we don't get very close to each other.

Well, today, I was snuggling on Mom's lap while she was working on her novel. Brainball was curled up on Mom's desk. MaoMao was lying at Mom's feet, and Dorydoo was curled up behind Mom, on the purr pad at the window. Yes, Mom was surrounded by Ballicai. It's her favorite way to write.

Anyway, I jumped up on the desk, where Brainball was. In days past, given such a situation of Marilyn-Brainball proximity, I'd keep my distance, and Brainball and I would eye each other like, "Close, but not too close."

But not today.

Today, I crept up close to Brainball and sniffed her ear. She just lay there. And then I gave her ear a gentle kiss. And she didn't mind! She let me kiss her. She approved, and I think I made her as happy as she made me.

I am full of sisterly joy right now! Though it's Brainball's Gotcha Day tomorrow, it is she who gave me a gift *huge smile* and *purrrrr.*

Our loving exchange made Mom so happy that she got leaky-eyed, then she rewarded us with a whole lot of (mmmm!) Temptations!

Just a heads-up, Marilyn. Beware if your human comes home with one of these: http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/animal-abuse/japans-hello-kitty-cat-humiliation-system-282872.php

That is so special!!! Mommy is tear-y-eyed too, coz it reminds her of when Casey and Missy stopped fighting and reminded her of when Casey finally got over being upset and started play with us.

It's a VERY special day!

Oh, just forget that I can spell things right before I stick my paw on the go button! Big is the word I was trying to right, not bigh.

OH, that is so nice that you gave Brainball a little kiss and that she let you! Furry sweet.

Oh by the way - I was at Brainballs party earlier and I loved your dress! It was also nice of you to help Brainball get dressed up - well, I guess the boots aren't dressy, but she is really trying : )
