My First Gotcha Day -- Party On the Blog!

UPDATE: My precious Mickeybear is having a parade of guests on his blog to help me celebrate my Gotcha Day! Isn't that just wonderful? Go to his blog and see! I am so excited -- thank you, darling Bear!



Thanks so much to Maggy and Zoey at Zoolatry for the beautiful photo-portrait!

Welcome, everyone, to my Gotcha Day Party! Please make yourselves comfortable.

It's hard to believe I've already been in my Forever Home for a whole year, but at the same time, it feels as though I've always been here. A paradox? Yes, but a lovely one *smile*. I'm a lucky kitty girl to have found my Mom and Dad and to have my wonderful siblings. They love me so much, and I love them.

What a year it's been -- I've learned and experienced so much. I adjusted to a muti-cat home, I became a blogging kitty, I met and fell head-over-heels in love with my darling Mickeybear, and we became not only a happy, loving kitty couple but a dynamic poetic duo! *smile*

The party will last all twenty-four hours of December 1 -- come and go as you can, and enjoy the delectable spread: I've made my special-recipe tuna puffs, and there's fresh catnip, pet grass for cats and bunnies, treats for woofies, plenty of stinky goodness and, of course, Temptations. My darling sister Miss Peachy is bringing delicious, delectable sushi for an extra-special treat! There's chicken, turkey, ham, lobster, tuna, salmon, and shrimp! And last but not least... niptinis mixed with primo 'nip.



So everyone... please enjoy my party and have fun. We can play Box Wars, Tent Wars, Walk on the Ceiling, Chase the Red Dot, and Thundering Herd of Elephants! Mao might start a burping contest. Then we can snooze in giant, snuggly cat heaps when we get tired. Eat, drink, play, nap, burp, whatever and whichever strikes your fancy, and above all, be merry! Thank you so much for coming. I love you all.

Check out the beautiful white flower Mickey gave me -- it opened right around the time of my Gotcha Day! Isn't that amazing? Thank you, my sweet, romantic mancat!



And look, Mickeybear... for my Gotcha Day, I'm wearing the beautiful red gown you got me *happy blush*.

Uhhh... Marilyn? Is it too eerly to start the burpin kontest?

Marilyn MonREOW said...

It's early yet, MaoMao. But everything's ready, and we might have some early arrivals.

Brainball said...

Nice spread -- *chows down on stinky goodness*. I'm glad you don't mind me wearing my Battle Dress Uniform. Though I'm at a party, an Alpha Cat is never off-duty.

Dorydoo said...

Primo catnip! Primo catnip!!

*throws herself into the catnip and waves paws in the air, having hallucinations about Earl Grey*

*GIGGLY GIGGLY GIGGLE!*

Brainball said...

I'm not all that burpy, MaoMao -- and as Alpha Cat, I need to stay steady on my feet to keep the party perimeter secure against vishus deer or other sorts of unsavory characters.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Welcome, welcome wonderful kitty friends! Thank you so much. Try some of these tuna puffs -- I'm so pleased with how they came out!

We hope we aren't too early. It is almost 6pm in Italy. We wanted to stop by and wish you a very happy Gotcha Day! It was a long trip from Italy so, if you don't mind, we think we go over and pour ourselves a drink and mingle a little.

Auguri (which is Italian for best wishes)!

Love,
Opus and Roscoe

Miss Peach, I'd be happy to help you with the sushi platter! Just point the way, and I'll do the honors.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Miss Peachy, my sweet sister! *kiss, kiss* You look so incredibly beautiful in your blue dress! And thank you for your sweet words about my dress -- Mickeybear found it for me on the internet! *smile* And isn't the wreath gorgeous? Ann did such a beautiful job, and it's indeed a happy celebration of the four seasons I have spent in my forever home!

My darling Mickeybear! *kiss, warm snuggle* How wonderful that you are here, and I am sorry your computer has been giving you problems! I understand -- sometimes Mom's computer is naughty, too! *smile* Have a tuna puff, my dearest! And the catnip is simply wonderful. The catnip Sassy brought is nice and strong!

Jeter! Hi there, sweetie! Thank you so much. And *giggle*, what a great burp. The tuna juice is right this way... Mickey, shall we show him? He'll love it!

Thank you so much, Diamond! And Monty... mmmmm, those fish flakes smell wonderful! Sunny, Dorydoo is itching to play Thundering Herd of Elephants... she loves that game! Thank you so much, Ramses! And please have some more tuna puffs, sweet Caesar and Prinnie -- you two look so precious snuggling together. And black panther Mickey -- yes, isn't Miss Peachy just stunning? You two make such a splendid couple!

Thank you, Daisy -- Dorydoo entered the burping contest, too, *giggle*! And what an adorable little burp you have! *smile*

*giggle*, Maggy and Zoey! Thank you again for the beautiful graphic! It's purrfect!

Hi, Jimmy Joe! The turkey is particularly savory and tender -- I think you'll love it! And hi Opus and Roscoe -- how lovely that you teleported all the way over from Italy! *smile*

Sassy, I love your Santa Hat! And I'm sorry you've lost your pink one -- we'll help you look for it! *smile*

Chase, sweetie girl, you look enchanting, and I'm so glad you're here! Let me pour you some tuna juice in this nice tall glass -- you'll enjoy that! Drinking out of glasses is fun!

Gretchen said...

Hey, everybody, I'm back. My bean got up early, just for me.

I'm ready for some 'yamon, and I think I'll try some of those tuna juice cocktales.

Maybe Daisy can teach me how to burp. I've never done that before.

I do want to play thundering herds of elephants...can I be purple again?

Henry Helton said...

Hey Marilyn! Happy GotchaDay. This is a great party. Love the niptini's.

Hey Mao, Clyde, Charlotte and I wanna play thundering herd of elephants, too!

Zooooooooooooooooom!

Mike said...

Hey, Marilyn! Happy Gotcha Day!
I was hanging out around the house with Gretchen until her pa bean comes home. So I thought I'd teleport over for some fun with you guys for a while.

Pixel said...

Happy gotcha day :)

Cat Naps in Italy said...

It is only 8:30pm Italy time, but are feeling the jet lag a bit (or maybe the nipatinis). Would you mind if we snuggled down for a little cat nap?

Love,
Opus and Roscoe

Derby said...

Happy Gotcha Day Marilyn. You look stunning in your red dress.

So many of our furends are here, the buffet looks good and I won't turn down a niptini.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Hi, Chancy dear! Thank you so much, and of course you may borrow my red gown! *smile* I'm glad you enjoyed the tuna puffs!

Gretchen! BFSC! You're just in time for Thundering Herd! The young kitties are really getting a good "spaz" going, especially after all that catnip! And there's lots and lots of 'yamon; you'll love it!

Henry, Clyde, and Charlotte! Yay! I'm so happy to see you. Here, have some more niptinis, then join in the rousing game of Thundering Herd! Or should I say Thundering Game of Rousing Herd? *giggle*! You young kitties are so much fun to watch, *smile*. I am a very placid older girlcat, but I do enjoy watching young ones play!

Mike! How fabulous to see you again! You amaze me with your teleporting skills. And you play a wonderful game of Thundering Herd, the way you can zip in and zip out at will!

Thank you so much, dear Pixel, and Opus and Roscoe, a cat nap sounds lovely -- shall everykitty who wants to nap start us a nice comfy cozy snuggly kitty heap right over here, with me? *smile*

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Thank you so much, Derby my friend! Have a 'niptini! And that turkey is excellent, as is the lobster!

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

I see the sushi platters are a big hit, they are pretty too aren't they. NO FISHES WERE HARMED in the making of the sushie. Remember fish are friends! The nemo on the sushie is made of turkey mouse. I asked mommy if she skinned the mouse herself....she nearly burped up her coffee.
Doesn't MY Mickey look handsome in his black ArmaniCAT suit! Your Micky is wearing a white LagerfeldCAT suit. We have such wonderfur mencats...how lucky we are!
So nice to talk with Ruis...I need to make that next casting call. I have missed the last two!
Oh and I hope Ariel can stay for a bit...sorry to hear her mom is sick.
Oh and Mike is here too....I thought he was off traveling the world!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

My darling Peachy, the sushi is simply delectable! And I'm sorry you missed the casting call for CCSI -- I was slow on the uptake, too and missed it, mainly because Mom was hogging the computer so much! And ohhhh, our mancats look so handsome.... *big smile*! We are such lucky ladycats.

Mike is resting before his next round of travels -- Gretchen's Pa Bean is ill and in the hospital and Mike wants to be home so there will be a Mancat in the house.

Dear Gretchen, my strongest healing purrs are going out to your Pa Bean! And Ariel, they are going out to your Momma for her to get over her flu soon.

Chairman Mao said...

Ariel, I think I'm ready fur a nice slow dancie now. Here is my paw! We'll dance nice and slow so we can snuggle while we're dancin.

Parker said...

Oh what a great party! Thanks for inviting me Marilyn! I love the 'niptinis! and the food is great! Happy, happy, happy Gotcha' Day! Those are the very best days, aren't they! I am so happy you have a great home with siblings and people who love you very much!

Thank you so much for coming, Ariel dear! I hope you had a wonderful time, and you are soooo good for MaoMao *smile*.

Tyler said...

Happy Happy Birthday Sweetie! You've provided us with such a delicious feast, I don't know what to add. Maybe I can bring my special brie and shrimp appetizers. They should go with with your niptinis.

I'm so pleased for you having found and been with your loving family this past year!

Thank you for the invite! I'm having a relaxing time

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Welcome, Tyler! And thank you so much, my friend -- a forever home is such a wonderful thing! Mmmmm, thank you so much for bringing the brie and shrimp appetizers -- they are simply fabulous. *smile*

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Oh Tyler how wonderful that you brought brie and shrimp...i just love both! I have missed you and am glad to see you here. Have you met my handsome mancat Mickey yet? He is from Canada...oh that is such a beautiful place.

Marilyn,
Did you see who stopped by on my blog to wish you a Happy Gotcha Day?
This is a wonderful party ... and you have looked fresh all day in your red dress.
Your--Mick

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Hi Marilyn,

I yam comin' oevfur a minute or two to say Happy Gotcha Day to my good frend Mao'z sister. I yam sorry I got here so late, but da momee haz been not too helpfful wit da bloggie today. Do you tink it iz too late to burp a little? I tink Mao might enjoy a burp dat goez like dis: "BbbbbbbbRRRRRuuffffffffffffpppppppah!"
Of course, dis comez awfully close to barfin', & I did not hearz anybody mention da word barf. OK, mebbe after another tuna puff.
I haz brought you a nice bowl of catnip tea, so dat you can eaze into your evening.
Now if Henry iz still wanderin' around ovefur dere & some other cats wants to play some more thunderin' elly-pants, I can do dis too: "BANZAI!"
Much love,
Dr Tweety

Eric and Flynn said...

Hi Marilyn we got here as soon as we could. We haf to say yoo look divine in yer red dress, just like a byootyful film star. Happy Gotcha day to yoo.

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Oh that Dr Tweety is having such fun......

One-Eyed Jack said...

~Jack

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

I yam havin' a furry good time indeedy. I sure tink dat Marilyn looks beeyoutifull in her red dressee. I yam glad dat she & Miss Peachy are such good frendz. Iz dat anudder 'niptini in Mao'z paw?? Uh Mao, uh don't you tink you might regret dat in da mornin'?

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Oh, *giggle*, my darling Mickeybear -- I am loving your parade of special guests on your blog! Go, everykitty, and see -- they are fabulous! You are the sweetest mancat ever. You are making me smile and smile and smile! And you are making my girlcat heart go pitter pat -- you are so breathtakingly handsome in your suit!

Hi, Dr. Tweety! I'm laughing over that burp -- hilarious! And you know what, though MaoMao didn't barf at this party, he did barf at another party a while back -- he barfed, as they said, all the way to Mars, can you imagine that? He left early to take Ariel home, and he is staying at her place to snuggle and watch a movie *smile*. But Dorydoo is still up for burping contests -- she's quite a feisty young girl, I must say!

Eric and Flynn, thank you so much for coming! There is a spirited game of Thundering Herd of Elephants going on -- some kitties have gotten tired and are napping in the snuggly kitty heap, but there's still plenty of action going on!

Hi, sweet Jeter! That was an excellent burp! *giggle*! I don't burp (well, at least not where anycat can hear *smile*), but I'm getting a kick out of listening to them!

Dorydoo said...

Boy oh boy oh boy... the burp contest is continuing! Okay, okay, get ready for this... are you ready? Yeah, get ready...

BEEEEEYYYYAAAAARRRRRRP

HEE!!!!

I'm pretty proud of that!

Dorydoo said...

Dr. Tweety, that's wonderful -- burping elephants! Let's play Thundering Herd of Nipped Out, Burping Elephants!

thunka-thunka-thunka ***BELCH**** thunka-thunka ***flop and roll on the floor*** BEEEYYYARRRP!

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

WOwza Dorydoo! I yam imp-dressed dat you can burp so well. Did Mao teach you to do dat? I tink I yam gonna attempt one last burpee in honor of Marilyn'z Gotcha Day, & den I better take a nap. OK, here goez:
BHHHHHHHHUUUUUUURRRRRRAPPPPPAAAH!
Woo. Mebbe it iz da 'nip dats goin' to my head or mebbe it iz all deze catz in one house!

Eric and Flynn said...

THUNDER THUNDER BUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRPPPPPPPPPPPP, THUNDER CRASH CHAAAAARRRRRRGGGGE
BBBBBUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRPPPPPPPPHaha how wuz that furr a thundering burping ellyfant?
Eric

Eric and Flynn said...

Flynn

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Oh man! Eric & Flynn iz da bomb!!! doze ginger guyz really knowz how to thunder burp. & dorydoo iz one amazin' gurl-burpin' gallopin' elly-pants player.

Dorydoo said...

hee hee hee... yeah, MaoMao and I have practiced burping together! I'm a tomboy girl. I thought about wearing a gown, but then I decided on blue jeans and a yellow flowery sweater to match my eyes!

That's a GREAT burp, Dr. Tweety! And I'm loving this game of Burping Nipped out Thundering Elephants!

Dorydoo said...

Eric and Flynn!!! That was...

That was...

that was...

AMAZING!

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Dr Tweety is on his side, smiling like all the good cats at Marilyn's house. A small, er.. rather LOUD noise comes from his freckled nose and mouth:

"Z-z-z-z-z-HIC-Z-z-z-z-z-z-HIC."

It appears that the good doctor has fallen prey to tuna puffs, burping, running around in a rousing game of thundering elly-pants, and generally, having the time of his life.

Happy Gotcha Day Miss Marilyn Meow!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

*giggle*! Dr. Tweety, you are such a fine and fun party fellow! I am so glad you're here, and I hope your sweet Auntie Stinky is feeling better.

Dorydoo said...

Mickey, fellow house panther! Enjoy those niptinis -- they're scumpdillyumptious!

MaoMao is over at Ariel's watching movies -- he had too many niptinis! He has kind of a tendency to do that, but Ariel calmed him down. *grin*
