First Blogoversary Party!!!!

One year of The Cat Realm. What a wonderful and exciting year it was! We made so many new friends - and had so many wild parties - and were on so many adventurous trips!
Zoolatry made this beautiful badge for us and they were thoughtful enough to include our beloved Anastasia who - we are sure - is throwing one hell of a party today at the rainbow bridge. We love you and miss you very much, sweet Anastasia!

Now let's get the party started! First we will gather for a group picture. There are no less than 36 animals here!

Here is the guest list, please go and check out their blogs - they might have additional pictures!
Kattenpraat, Sassy, Momo, Opus and Roscoe, Socks, Scylla and Charybdis, Charlie, Asta, Momo and Pinot, Charlotte, Riley, Jan's Funny Farm.
And now let's just dive in!!! Literally, hahahahahahahahaha.... The cake was a blogoversary present from Sassy!

Our Rainbow Bridge Kitties stopped by for a fleeting moment - Miral, Ralph, Anastasia - we miss you so much and we will always love you!


And here of course is the core of it all: the BBQ - an endless supply of lizards is grilled non-stop.... DAISY! You will have to wait like everybody else, hahahahahahahahahahaha....

We are milling around, waiting for the first lizards to be ready...

The tub was by far the most thought after "hang-out spot". These are all in-laws of mine! Ruis comes with a family of 8 cats and 2 dogs!

picture by Ruis

More In-Laws and a question: did we have too much Lizquila - or could it be a real nip plant?

picture by Ruis

Ad here are the cats and dogs from Jan's Funny Farm enjoying the tub. You see right away that they are a wild bunch, hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

picture by Sassy

Sassy had brought a pop-up Mariachi with a hole for a face so all the guests could have their picture taken! Right now it's Emil's turn and you can see how we are all standing in line for this!


Ruis and I hadn't seen each other for a while so we use the oppurtunity for some quality time together and have the butler serve us Lizquila at the tub:

Everybody has lots of fun and we eat and drink a lot!

After the food comes the entertainment! Here is the famous #1 cat Mariachi band "Los Gatos" with featured dancer Charybdis and guest Mariachis Momo and Socks:

Los Gatos costumes by Opus and Roscoe; Momo, Socks and Charybdis costumes by Momo

And then almost everybody got into costume and made music and danced!!!

Come back tomorrow for more!!!!!


Raffle closed. Winner will be announced Thursday April 17.

Wow!! What a great party! I love to see how you got your bean slave to serve you Lizquila in such a kinky attire... haha. Hmmm... Where's the one with the bunny attire? :P

I hope the giant lizard is enough for everyone. I'm going to butter grill it later. Can someone get me some tabasco sauce to go with it? hehe.

Anyway, Happy 1st Blogoversary from the J Family.

The Cat Realm said...

Thank you J Family! You are the first visitors! We have plenty of tabasco sauce and also lots of Salsa to go with that big lizard.
Let the party begin!!!!

MoMo said...

Can't believe I got beaten by those Malaysian kitties! Happy Blogoversary, Karl and hope there are many more to come! You are a bright light in the CB.

More Lizquila please! I prefer the salmon sushi to the lizard but each to her own.

Sassy is with me, as you can see. She is too busy stuffing her face to talk! Hahahahaha!

MoMo said...

Hey Sassy, stop eating so much. We have to dance in a minute. Don't want you to puke anything up!

DK & The Fluffies said...

Wowie what a party! We're all here and have crab from the wharf to celebrate.

MoMo said...

Yikes, we are early, aren't we? Trust these Australiasian guests to turn up half a day early at a party. Never mind, while we are here we may as well PARTEEEE!

topcatrules said...

Par-tay!! Woo hoo! Congratulations! From Tigger the FBI cat and also Trixie and Pyewacket. :)

Dorydoo said...

Lizquila! Mmmmm, mmmmm GOOD!! May I have another, please? Oh wowie...

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

The Cat Realm said...

OMG - you guys rock!!!!!! It is actually not even quiet midnight here in Tucson - so we cheated a bit to start the party early - and the guests are already here getting stuffed and loaded, hahahahahahahahahaha.
Don't mention "burping contest" when Emil is around - you will never here the end of it - literally!!!!
The lizard supply is endless so don't worry about seconds. Same with the wine and Lizquila - but that one you might want to be careful - VERY potent: 75 proof, I believe....
Now let's party and enjoy!

MoMo said...

75 huh? D'you hear that, Sassy? Sassy? OK, one down and I am spining.

Mike said...

Hey, Buds!

I'm here and I'm ready to DANCE!

Happy 1st Blogoversary!

Your bud, Mike

Dorydoo said...

75 proof??????? WHOOOO-HAAA!!!!! No wonder I'm feeling so tiddly on my paws!

Okay! Let the burping contest commence.

*clear throat delicately*

BBBEEEEEEEEEEAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHPPPPP

(*hic*)

(rolls around in catnip, gets it all over my furs)

WHEEEEEEE!

Gretchen said...

Happy 1st Blogversary Cat Realm!

Hey, Marilyn, Dorydoo, Mao, Brainball, I'm glad you're here. Mike could get a little wound up so I may need your support.

I'm hungry how do those grilled lizards taste?

Hugs, Karl, Mrs. Oz, and Emil the decorations are really cool. This is a great party! I love the music.

Gretchen

Marilyn MonREOW said...

*ahem*, DORYDOO.

I must apologize to everyone for my little sister's decidedly unladylike behavior!

(But I must admit, I'm feeling quite tiddly myself!!)

Chairman Mao said...

GRETCHEN AND MIKE!!!! WOOHOO!!! Hiya fluffsiscuz and fluffheadbrocuz! The lizzerds are superduper superduper! I like 'em with salsa, but Brainball likes 'em with Tabasco. And Dorydoo's already bombed onna Lizquilas. *whew*, she can do a mean burp! hehe

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Hi, Gretchen! *kiss, kiss* So wonderful to see you, dear BFSC! I am loving these grilled lizards with BBQ. What a delightful party this is!

Mike said...

Oooooooooo, I'm gonna dance all night, I'm gonna sing and dance all night. I love the cool desert air here. Maybe I should have a sip of that liquid lizard stuff, then maybe I should scoff down a few of those roasted lizards, and hang out by the bath tub.

Then I'm gonna dance and sing all night. I love that music!!! Aaaa-ha!

Mike said...

Hey, I see my bud, Brody! How ya been Brod! Lets get movin' and shakin' with the beat. Woweee!

Mmmmm, mmmmmmm, my oh, my, these lizards sure go down smooth with the liquid stuff. Do you think fluffheads will get a buzz from it?

Gretchen said...

Oh, this such a lovely evening. There's so much to eat and so much to see. Mike's raved about your ranch, Karl, from the moment he returned home.

Oh, Mrs. Oz...I would like to give you a pair of the pineapple sunglasses. I didn't know how to transport them with me, but if you go to Mike's transport room you'll see them on the sidebar. I'd love to see you in them.

We could be like twins...*giggle* Oh, my goodness, this liquid lizard stuff is quite remarkable. I feeeel a litttle blurrry. I'm not goood wiiith thinnngs that maaaake the worrrld burrry. *giggle*

MoMo said...

Hiya, Ballciai, Hi, Marilyn , Hi Gretchen! This stuff is potent. My sissy, Sassy, is out to it and she only had a couple. Mike should be OK though!

MoMo said...

I'm gonna to curl up and snooze....

It seems a quiet right now, is every cat taking a little break? You cats did start partying early! Hee hee. That's probably good anyway. This is very early for Sunny and he's looking for a quiet spot to take a quick nap in.

I am having so much fun! I have never danced before and I think I look really cute wiggling about. Livvie is a bit too old for dancing but she was tapping her foots, and Mitzi just loves the music - and the lizards. She even likes them over wiggly's and that's saying something.

Purrs and wiggles, Sukie X

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

Nice pictures. Does the buttler always walk around half naked?

Team Tabby said...

We think your butler with the air conditioned tux is awesome, he keeps our glasses filled and we's thirsty too.
Hope we don't get too nipped out tho, cause we promised to bring mom back some green chilies, can't get 'em where we are, oh, and some roasted red pepper powder - it'll make her happy. She'll have to wait a while, we're havin so much fun. Time for a dip in da pool.

Happy blogosversary! And many more!

Mike said...

Happy Birthday Princess! You're looking great for 17.

Hey guys, it's been fun. I got to run home and sober up some. I just found out I'm teleporting to Texas tonight, to visit Queen Snickers and Empress for a week.I don't think they want me flying through cyperspace all tipsy. I'm so exhausted from all the singing and dancing, and so stuffed on lizards. I think I've found the next love of my life - lizards!

Karl, Emil, Mrs. Oz, Brody....thanks for having me. I really had a good time. Gretchen has to come with me, she's my navigator. Where is Gretchen (looking around) oh, there you are Miss G, sleeping it off are you? Time to go home, say goodbye to our host.

Bye, Brody...bud.

Party on....Mike

Gretchen said...

Oh, dear, was I asleep all this time? I missed out on all the dancing and the burping. Well, have fun everyone...Mike says we have to go home now.

Mrs. Oz, I'm happy you liked the glasses. Thanks, Karl, and Emil for your wonderful food and music and that liquid lizard stuff.

I had a great time.

HRH Yao-Lin said...

WOAH!!! That is one AWESOME party!!!! You really did a fantastic job - getting the butler to serve you is exquisite!! I may have to hire him. Not for any special occasion, just because he looks good serving cats.

Now, if you don't mind, I'll have some BBQ lizard and perhaps some salmon too xx

Sunny's Mommy said...

Olllllieeee! Where'd my girlfriend go? Oh there she is. Passed out under the table. I think I'll grab a chair and have a mancat nap!

Guess it's a good thing we talked Buddy & Samaritan out of jumping into the hot tub. We didn't even notice the no "diving sign" posted.

Marvelous party. We had to take a nap. Now we're ready for seconds on everything.

The AZ weather is lovely this time of year. Perfect day for an outdoor party.

Charlotte said...

Hi Karl, Happy Blogoversary to the Cat Realm! It's so hard to get that SMS of mine to co-operate and get me here.

Hi Rileeeeeeyyyyy! Are you still here? Hi Momo, next time I will have to come with you instead. Hi Socks, Charybdis and Scylla! Hi JFF! Hi everyone! What a great party! I am off to try some of those yummy BBQ lizards. LOVE them!

Let me know when the dancing starts. I have to find Riley.

Moki said...

75 proof is just my style...the best part, is no matter how drunk I get no one will ever notice the difference in my walk...hehe!

Tyler said...

Wow, oh wow, oh wowsers, you all know how to throw a party! You should become professional cat party thrower-on-ers. I am so glad that I made it. What a treat to visit with the kitty angels from the rainbow bridge. Anastasia is still very sunlike, I see. I just love those balet floklorico costumes. We have a lot of Mexican-American friends here in San Jose too! We love to dance La Raspa at our house.

Well, you've gone all out. I hope you've had a wonderful time visiting with all your friends. I'll drop by early tomorrow and help you clean up, if you'd like. I can also bring over some acidophilus for those of you who might have a hangover. It's suppose to help.

Alasandra said...

Asta, humans drink catnip tea so I don't know why a dog couldn't have some.

Too bad Scylla was at the vet during the burping contest we are sure she would have won.

Happy Happy Blogoversary to The Cat Realm. This is a wonderful party. Lizquila is pawsome

Babs (Beetle) said...

Hello all. This is Sukie, Livvie and Mitzi's mummy here. I'm afraid I had to take them home. It is the first party Sukie has been to and she has overdone the nip and eaten too many lizards. You can see the state they are in back home at simplycats. They have had the best time here at this wonderful party. If I were a cat I'd love to stay but I have to look after Sukie.

Thank you for inviting them and happy blogoversary!.

Happy Blogoversary, everybody! What a great party you guys are throwing. It's gonna take me forever to circulate amongst all the woofies, felines, and buns here...I just hope Miss Daisy doesn't eat all the lizards!

Radcliff, Allie, Luna, & Ozzie said...

Hi, Karl and the rest of the Realm. The Food Source here. This looks like a great party, but I think I better get the Clowder home before someone gets in trouble.

The Little Black Kitties are about to pass out, either from being tired or too much Lizquila, I don't know which.

Ozzie and Allie have wandered off somewhere together again.

I don't even want to know what Luna has been doing, but at least your house is still standing.

Again, great party. We'll try to drop in tomorrow to help clean up (or rejoin the party, I guess, depending)

JB's Big World said...

I am glad I could come to your party. I think the niptinis were strong though....I am all nipped out and need to nap!

WOWOW! Fanks for letting us drop in on this great party! So many cool cats! I am so glad I could make it! I would prefer to NOT have a dip in the pool though :) Happy anniversary!

*whew*, I've worn myself out and can't muster up another big burp but I now have hiccurps (a combination of hiccups and burps):
