Happy Birthday Julie and Carl!

Fifteen years and 2 months ago, a grand champion Persian followed her wilder instincts
 and ran out of the house at an opportune moment.
Two months later her kittens were born,
alas, not destined for the show ring,
 but rather the vet's office, looking for a good home.
The vet asked the mom if she would take both as they didn't want to break them up.
The rest is history!

All kitties and woofies are invited to help us celebrate!
We are having a cookout!

 Its by the lake for those who'd like to fish.

 There's plenty of other small creatures who'd love to play with us.

 Lots of stink bugs too.

Well, look who volunteered!

Anyone up for a game of Pin-the-Tail on the Vishus Deer?
There will be a treasure hunt too!

After you've worked up an appetite, stop by the camp fire.

There's lots of good food

Instead of S'mores, try skewering and roasting the fat juicy bugs you found on the Treasure Hunt!
Just delish!

Of course there's niptinis

And milk or crystal clear water for the little ones.

Save room for the birthday cakes!

 Julie's cake.

Carl's cake.

After dark we can hunt for lightening bugs.

And glow worms.

We're bringing our comfiest beds for anyone who wants to snooze near the fire.

Carl can't wait to sing around the campfire!
He's hoping for a howling good time.
The woofies are invited to a contest
to see who has the best howl after the moon comes up.

Thank you for coming to our party!
We hope you had fun.

Happy Birthday Julie and Carl! We played with the vishus deer, he was pretty cooperative. We love cook out food, especially grilled meats. A nap would be a good idea now, before the niptinis. Fab party!

Oh my! I hope I am not too late! Happy Birfday Carl and Julie! I'd love a cheezburger and a Niptini, and then I'd like to curl up in one of those cozy beds by the fire.

Happy birthday both of you, sorry we haven't been commenting much the last couple of days but we have had thunderstorms here, and it affected the computer and also internet connection has been patchy. Mum hasn't dared turn it on today until the thunderstorm stopped.

Happy 15th Birthday, Julie and Carl! Dante, Dylan and Domino left last night for your party, so I hope they made it on time.

Wow, what a great idea for a birthday feast -- a BBQ! Did you barbecue some critters until they were crispy, too? Bugs on a stick, PURRhaps?

We wish you both continued health and happiness for years to come!
