Monday Meows

Hi everyone it's Cody! So, did everyone have a great weekend? I sure hope so! I had to take over the blogging duties today because Mom is a food and cake over-loaded slug.

For those who may not have known, this past weekend was Mom's birthday, she had a great time, in fact, it was SO great, that at the last minute she turned the blogging responsibilities over to ME!

Mom originally was going to read and  review  Ingrid King's new book, Purrs Of Wisdom, but Mom had to reschedule that for Monday, November 26th (we thank Ingrid for her gracious understanding when Mom contacted her last week to let her know that due to her being busy celebrating  consuming mass quantities of food and cake for her birthday, she couldn't put down her fork,  shovel, long enough to read the book over the weekend). Then, Mom was going to  blog about her trip to Purina, which may I remind Mom was the FIRST week of October? I'll do some paw-whapping on her and get her to move her butt on THAT one!

While I was twitching my whiskers and tapping my paws trying to come up with a topic for today's post, after consulting with my slacker Mom, I have decided to show you a few of Mom's favorite cards that she received for her birthday.

Here you go!

Card is from American Greetings
Dad bought Mom the above card. He said it reminded him of yours truly. He said it was because of the crabby face. I have no idea what he is talking about, this card looks NOTHING like me! I am much more handsome than this sorry kitty!

Card is from Northern Exposure
Mom really oooohed and ahhhhed over this one! Look at how that orange tabby has his paw on top of the kitty's head! MOL! This card was from my Aunt Judy. Mom loves it!

Card is an Ink Loft card from Gartner Greetings Inc.

This card was another from Dad. He said it reminded him of Dakota and I.  Nice try Dad but neither the dog NOR the cat looks ANYTHING like either one of us! Mom loved the card anyway!

Last, but far from least, was a surprise'll know who this is from the second you look at it!

Card is from Glogirly

Mom received this adorable photo from the gang over at GLOGIRLY: Katie, Waffles and Katie's uber-talented Mom !! To keep up with all of the fun that goes on over at Katie's blog, click here to visit! Mom was tickled PINK to receive this! Thank you again to all at Glogirly for such a nice surprise!

Mom received other cards that she loved, but I have decided to only feature the ones that pertained to Cats!

Well, that's about it for this Monday's post. Oh wait! I forgot! Mom wanted me to be sure to thank ALL OF YOU who took time out of your busy weekend to stop by our blog and wish Mom a Happy Birthday. She said to be sure to tell ALL of you how special you are and how much ALL of your greetings touched her and made her SMILE! She said that EVERYONE helped make her birthday extra special, and she (and I) are grateful for each and every one of you!!!

Ok, that's enough gushing from me. I'm about to cough up a fur-ball from all of this sugar!

May the FUR be with you!

    @Cole Cat Mom says thanks so much! Come to think of it, NONE of them smelled of nip! What's up with THAT??

    @Nerissa I WILL remember this....MOL!

    @Katnip Lounge you ARE kidding aren't you? MOL! What do YOU think????!!

  34. I love the cards! I nearly always get cat cards for my youngest. He loves cats, and cats love him.
    BTW, your comment on my blog today- I am always saying that too! OOH, I'd so love to win the lottery and buy a cottage or bungalow by a lake.
    happy week to you and Cody from Jax, Ting and me!

  35. OMC! Talk about cake overload. We had half a cake left over from the pawty. A cousin does cakes for a living and she outdid herself. I'm gonna have to enlarge the doors for the peeps when they finish this cake.

  36. Well, you *did* have a cat-tastic birfday!



  37. Awwww...Cody! Thank you SO much for the sweet shout out! We're happy to hear your mom had such a fun (and cake-filled) birthday!

    Glogirly wants you to tell her though...there is NO SUCH THING as cake or even frosting overload!

    ; ) Katie

    We LOVE that first card!!! MIght have to steal the line on it someday!

  38. Hi Cody how generous of you to help MOM. Sounds like she's still celebrating or recuperating. Good for her! Hope she received our birthday wishes on Facebook. We're a little overwhelmed now with finding homes for new kittens.
    All the best,
