Before we start, I have some news. Mom had to take me to the VET on Wed. this week. I have a kidney infection and have to take antibiotics for a few weeks. I have been throwing up a bit too even tho I take slippery elm for my tummy. Many of you know I have CRF and hyperthyroid. I feel better today and will be up for my party, don't you worry. As the saying goes - "Growing old is not for sissies".
Sunday is my 20th Gotcha Day and Birthday since we don't really know the exact date. Reaching 20 is a huge milestone so Mom is letting me have a three day bash. Today will be for ladycats only - a spa day!
Mom has hired a beautiful place nearby for us to spend the day and we will get the full luxurious pampered treatment - massage, manicure, pedicure, nails painted if you want, bubble baths, all with lots of soothing music, candles and restful fragrances. Of course there will be nibbles and beverages for all, salmon and cream cheese apps and mouse blood wine.

While we relax and enjoy the day, I will reveal some little known traits about myself along with some never seen before photos of me as a young lady cat.

I have always loved Christmas and love to help with the tree, unwrap gifts and even sit and stare into the lit tree for long periods of time. That makes Mom is bit worried!

I am a licker. I love to lick Mom and Pop's skin. I sit next to them and lick, lick, lick. It drives them nuts (***wink*** maybe that's why I do it!)
I like to hide under the bedding, in the laundry pile, behind pillows on the couch. I have done this since I was very young. I get picked on by the other cats so I guess I like it better when I am not seen so I can nap in peace.
I am a high jumper and even at my age can get up on the counter and wail like a banshee when I want to eat! When we lived in Florida when I was young, Mom used to find me on the top shelf in the walk in closet snuggled in the sweaters sound asleep. She always wondered how I got up so high.

I hope you are enjoying yourself today. We have a cute prize for the first person to guess who said the quote in the first paragraph in this post. A German friend on Facebook makes these knit mice and sent us a nest of them. Us cats love to play with them so the lucky winner will get one for their very own.
Do come back on Saturday or Sunday for my 20th Gotcha Day/Birthday Open House. The party goes all day both days with different things going on so you have no excuse not to come. Cake, nip and more prizes - a great cat book and kitty ornament - and lots of fun and music.
