Mews and Nips: Special Birthday Edition

tortoiseshell-cats-birthday-cake

Hi everyone, it’s Allegra and Ruby! Guess what! Today is Mom’s birthday. Even though Mom had her usual Mews and Nips weekly round up post all ready to go, we decided that her birthday is more important. So we’re sorry there’s no weekly round up today, but really, all you  have to do is go to our home page and then scroll down to see the week’s posts, just in case you missed anything.

Ruby: Look Allegra, I got Mom balloons in her favorite colors!

Allegra: That’s very sweet of you, little one. I got her Forget-Me-Nots, because I know they’re her favorite flowers.

Ruby: And don’t forget to tell them, we got mom cake, too. A great big tuna cake!

Allegra: That’s not tuna cake, Ruby. It’s a strawberry cake with lots of whipped cream, because Mom loves strawberries.

Ruby: Oooh, I like cream. But it would be even better with tuna instead of strawberries! And Allegra, there’s only one candle on the cake? I don’t know exactly how old Mom is, but I know it’s more than one!

Allegra: Ruby! It’s not polite to talk about Mom’s age!

Ruby: Oh, okay. Then how about we snuggle with Mom all day long? And we’ll make sure she stays away from the computer and takes the day off to celebrate?

Allegra: Now that’s more like it, Ruby.

Ruby: And then maybe she’ll be so happy, she’ll give us tuna?

Allegra: Sighs. Please join us in wishing our Mom a happy birthday. She’s the best!

Ruby: We love you, Mom!

Our regular weekly Mews and Nips feature will return next week.

    Happy Belated Birthday, Ingrid. I hope all of your wishes came true. I’m sure Ruby and Allegra provided you with entertainment and more love than you could handle.

    (From a Country Western music lover, you were born on a very special day – – it is George Strait’s birthday, too. He is a true gentleman and my favorite cowboy.)

    Hi Ingrid, Your two lovely, innovative, caring precious girls, Allegra and Ruby announced you’re now a day older, but I say they should’ve added wiser, but whatever. ‘Happy Birthday to you, Ingrid, I hope your day was sunny and bright, full of love, hugs, kisses and of course licks, and all things nice. Allegra and Ruby have made you proud by planning this entire birthday bash, what smart furry cookies. Then the two managed to even outfit themselves with party gear and even to tote that big beautiful cake out without even putting a smudge on it. However, Ruby still had Tuna Cake on her brain, but Allegra turned her around and set her straight; explaining your favorite cake is Strawberry cake. ‘Oh, those girls are truly the world’s number one stars and you should be very proud of both of them.’ Happy….Birthday!

    Wishing you a day as special as you are!
    Wanted to let you know, I’m in the process of adopting a Tortie.
    Her guardian mom passed away and she was on her own till family rescued her. She’s beautiful, sweet and cat friendly, even dog friendly (I’m told) which is good for all of us.
    After Casey I didn’t think I could love another but I couldn’t resist her story. Casey is a part of my day in a million ways. I’m still grieving and I can’t change that.
    But you were always there with words of help and hope. So of course when I came upon this Tortie’s tale .. well, naturally I thought of you, Ingrid.
    Have a perfect day and a wonderful year ahead!!

      Oh Joyce, it makes me so happy to hear that you’re opening your heart and home to another kitty, and a tortie, too! I have a feeling Casey is smiling.
