A Mad Catter Tea Party~Continues

The party continues! Things are in full swing and everyone has agreed that the Mad Catter Tea Party should not end in one day so . . . round two begins on Sunday . . .


I am soooooooooo glad that you could come to my Mad Catter Birthday Party today! Stay as long as you like and make sure that you get plenty to eat at the party table.

l-r: Momo, Opus, Gracie, Olive, Karl, Ruis, & Asta

Here we all are. The gang is once again back together and checking in early to make sure everything was set up and ready for the party to start. There was a lot of work we had to get done and my sweet friend Karl and sissie Asta were so kind to assist me in the costumes that are being worn today.
. . . The party will continue through Sunday so stay as long as you like and please bring your friends with you because one of our mottos is the more the merrier!

Costumes by Gracie, Karl, & Asta
Back l-r: Asta, Opus, Ruis, Gracie, Karl, & Olive
Laying down: Momo

. . . At last time time arrived . . . we got into our costumes for the day's event and took a group photo before we headed inside for the tea party in honor of my second birthday! Wow, I cannot believe that I am two already . . .

. . . There is plenty to eat and drink so don't be shy. Seconds, thirds or fourths are available for everyone . . .

l-r: Gracie Ruis, Karl, & Opus

. . . Trying to work off a little of the excess food that was taken in Karl, Opus, and I decided that a game of croquet would help us burn off some calories. Ruis was overseeing the game . . .

. . . There are some party favors to take home when you are ready to leave. I have a little something for everyone.

Mad Catter Tea Party Set


Nail Polish for all our little cute toesies!

Shoes for the mom
I thought since your moms let you spend the day with me I would send a gift home to her.
Hope she likes them. 


. . . at the end of the day we all decided that it would be fun to play a little game of hide and seek
and I hope you will join in too . . .


OK, are you ready? I'll count backwards from ten and when I get to one I will try and find you. Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, ONE!

I hope you had a fun time at my second birthday party and I am soooooooo happy that you could come and share this special day with me. I have such wonderful friends!!

ps: I stopped over at my boyfriend's place, Barney, to let his mommie know that he would be hanging out here awhile longer and not to worry if he isn't home on Saturday. Well when I got there I found that my sweetie pie dedicated a whole post about my birthday. I found that he and his mommie made me a special birthday card and three special photos. I will post the photos below. This is what Barney wrote about me "Happy Second Birthday Gracie!! You are my one and only ladycat for ever and ever!! Sending you lots of hugs and smooches!! (Oh, and all the rest oof the kitties of course wish you a very Happy Birthday too!!) " Isn't he just the bestest of the best boyfriends!!! I am so lucky he is my mancat!!

Isn't he just the cutest!!

MoMo said...

Woooohooooo!!! What a party!!!! I sure am enjoying myself - can't you just see me brinning from ear to ear?

After the recent ordeal, I don't think I would want to take home anything for my nasty SS, especially since I know she would adore those shoes.

Actually I think I'll stay here and not go home at all. Do you think your mom would let me?

Happy Birthday, Gracie! I can't believe you are two already, either. I remember when you first started working on your Mom to be adopted. Herman is having a blast tasting all the food and playing hide-and-seek.

The tables are groaning under all this delicious food - we'll just reat a moment and catch up on all the gossip and then we'll join you all in a game of croquet.

Kea said...

Happy birthday, Gracie! Wow, what a fabulous party, thanks for inviting us!

We boys would love to stay for the day--we have treats and nip to share too--but Annie sends her regrets, she has a UTI and isn't feeling great. That just means more food for the rest of us! :-D

Okay, we're psyched to party!

Marg said...

Eric and Flynn said...

Happy Birthday Gracie. This is a wonderful party, so much fun.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

I am so glad that everyone is having a fun time and asking if you want to stay the whole day long that is just fine with me. I am hearing from many that the moms have been busy so I don't think you will be missed if you do stay. My mom here hasn't been working a lot for me but she has said that she will make sure that I visit all that are here today and those from the other days that I haven't had a chance to visit she will see that I do so. It might take awhile but I will soon be on my way. Thanks for the wonderful wishes and some delicious treats that were brought along with you. Now get ready for another hide and seek, ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one! Ready or not here I come! First one I will try to find will be my boyfriend Barney!!

Admiral Hestorb said...

Happy Birthday sweet and beautiful Gracie. You don;t look a DAY offur one! I can't believe you're two!

Happy Birthday #2 Gracie. We can't believe you are 2, it seems like just yesterday you came to live with your family.

This is the most pawsome party!!!!!! We teleported the shoes back to Mommy and she loves them. She is going to a party this afternoon and we wanted her to wear them and she said she would. And Mommy won't be home till late so you know what that means? We can stay here and party all day with you.

Socks is looking for MoMo for some snuggle time. Fenris would like to learn to play croquet and the rest of us are going back for seconds.

Hansel said...

Happy birthday gracie! we can't believe you're two! we remember we just seemed to get home from your FIRST birthday party.

CCL Wendy said...

Happy 2nd Birthday, Gracie!!! What a fabulous party you've got going on!

Dante, Dylan and Domino are all on their way over with a big tub of nip! It should help the Mad Hatter experience along, don't you think?

It's Dante's birthday, today, too, but he wanted to join you in all the fun so you could celebrate together!

Happy Birthday Gracie! What a party! You know, we are very pleased to know your motto is "the more the merrier"...well, because WE ARE the "more". Ha! With 9 of us kittie and silly Grete woofie, we're a traveling party! Woo hoo!

U B 2? You are still a kitten at heart! We made your Birthday Invitation into our header today in honor of your special day!

Teri said to be sure to be on the lookout for Johnny Depp as he could make a surprise appearance? Maybe she meant Johnny Cat? Hahameow!

We think your piktures, costumes and story could make a lovely book...a birthday book of memories of this special day!

May your day be filled with lots to purr about!

Happy Birthday, Gracie! Sam & I wouldn't ever miss a birthday pawty, oh nooooo. And yours is just beautiful! We have been mingling and saw many of our friends here having the best, best time. Wow, cats really know how to throw a shindig, don't they. We asked our mom when our birthdays are coming and she said she has to dig out our old papers. What does that mean? Our old papers. I use litter, I don't know what she uses. But she loves us so we'll share "the box" if we need to. Mom is giving us the weirdest look now. Humans, gotta wonder about them sometimes.
Well, Gracie, you gorgeous little girl you, have a wonderful day and romp and play! We'll be back for sure! (By the way, if you look under the sofa you'll see the nip-mouse I brought you)

I'm back, Gracie! *excuse me, excuse me (I'm moving around the room) You've got quite a crowd! I'm a little confused, though. I'm seeing very little "tea." Somebody just knocked a White Russian on my tail and soaked my best pants.

But, who cares?! I'm having a great time and had a super day at the Parish today, too.

Okay, I'm ready to hide..

Happy Birthday, again, sweet one!

Your party looks like it was just incredible!!
We dropped off some nip for you.
