WCB 68

Hello all and welcome to Weekend Cat Blogging 68! Clare is still MIA, so Bonnie and I have been trying to hold it all together, but we need your help! The lovely Sanjee and Robyn from The House of (Mostly) Black cats are hosting next week, so we need volunteers for the WCB's during the month of October.

Who out there is feline enough to step up to the plate and round up, up, up, and out of the park?!?!?

Let's get some volunteers!

Meanwhile, in OTHER news, Today is my 27th birthday! Or, as I prefer to put it, It's the third anniversary of my 24th birthday! Hubby is taking me out to a LA hotspot called KOI for some food and hopefully celebrity watching. Tiggy helped me celebrate by waking me up with a kitty-back massage. Really, she kneaded me all over my sore back, which was totally appreciated. Hubby came home early from work with a beautiful floral arrangement, which of course I had to share with Tiggy:

She nearly singed her whiskers there!

And I made a cake for myself:

It's vanilla sponge cake with almond buttercream filling and raspberry jam. YUM!
I also got a new camera and a kick-butt beligum waffle maker (more on that later).
BUT the best present of all was a phone call from my best friend from Grade 8, Nikkel Carrera. We haven't talked in about 14 years, so it was great to catch up and an amazing birthday surprise. Hi Nikkel!

Enough about ME- let's get the round-up happening.

Thanks for hosting this week. It is much appreciated.

Hi Sarah,
Thank you for hosting again.
In honor of Stephen King's birthday this past Thursday, the cats are celebrating and are hoping they get adopted.
Take care.

The cats have a way of 'helping' that isn't always what they think

Patchy Cat was jealous of New Cat's recent portrait and demanded one of him, and since you don't want to make the Farm Boss mad. . .

Have a great weekend!

Oh my goodness. I had this post up from this morning and the new additions didn't show up until after I'd published my comment.


And I want that cake! It's absolutely gorgeous, and I bet it tastes as good as it looks (or better). And I don't want just a little sliver, I'd like the entire thing please. : )

Wow!! I'm so impressed with that cake. And dinner at Koi? Very cool! Thanks for hosting. I would be happy to host in the future. I'm betting that Tiggy couldn't believe you might eat a cake made of flowers! Happy birthday.

Here's my link:

Happy Birthday!!! Tiggy is so curious abt the flowers. Here's my ginger rep for this weekend:

Lisa the Waitress said...

I will volunteer to host but it might take me all Friday, Saturday and Sunday to get links up because I work Fridays and Saturdays. You can e-mail me if you'd like me to do it.

Here are my kitties for the week:

Hello again!

A pal of mine in England would like to join WCB for the first time but is up to her eyeballs in a mashed potato testing, LOL, so I offered to leave you her entry. Actually, I said she HAD to join this week because her photo is absolutely wonderful (and very unique)! : )

Hope you like it:

Happy Birthday, Sarah.
Enjoy your youth.
Thank you for hosting WCB #68.
Glad to learn you are from Cananda and so is Jelly from "I Got 2 Shoes", and also you both celebrate birthdays only one week apart.
Tiggy really is wishing you a great birthday, and that picture is terrific.
That cake you made looks scrumptous!
Hope your night at the fine restaurant was excellent.
It sounds like we have some volunteers lined up to host future WCB.
Happy Birthday to you.

Could you please add this link for Feline Foster Mom Ellen from ScamperDude because Ellen and her husband have adopted Rocky Road after many, many months of fostering and rehabilitating her thru a tough illness. Rocky Road is a special-needs, beautiful cat, but Ellen did not think she would get adopted and they really love Rocky Road.
Thank you.
Ellen and Rocky Road say Happy Birthday too.

Your birthday cake looks absolutely beautiful.
