Asta's Welcome Home Party

Our good friend Asta has been visiting Italy in the past few days. And by visiting I do not mean teleporting but REALLY visiting!!! How exciting is that!? We do not have pictures yet - but we are sure they will be fabulous!

Scruffy, Lacie and BabyStan, dog friends of Asta, decided to organize a Surprise Welcome Home Party and have invited us cats to join. They did quiet a good job with balloons, drinks, food and games but check out the stuff that Sassy and Momo are bringing!

So we all used our Flying Van to get to New York and start the surprise party at Asta's place!

In the van:
Opus and Roscoe, Sassy, Emil, Momo, Mrs. OZ, Ruis and Karl.
My in-laws (8 cats and 2 dogs!) were kind enough to take over in caring for Miral so Ruis could leave for a few hours to participate in the party. We will all have a BIG toast to her health!!!

And as far as we know Asta comes back tomorrow, April 8.

Now, don't we all look dignified, well-behaved kitties! What nonsense it is to talk about 'unchaparoned' or 'unsupervised' gatherings! Poo, as if we need it!

Woooohoooooo, time to party! Champagne to toast Asta, Miral, all the furries at kattanpraat and EFURRYBODY!!!!!!

Wow! A flying van AND a party! You guys know how to live it up at The Cat Realm!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Well, since you got there first...could you:

Set up at least 20 litter boxes?

Set up the astroturf we ordered and plant the fire hydrant in the middle of it? (Check with the doorman...he's holdin' it...)

Let the mice go to begin the hide and seek game. Oh...don't eat them...they're playin' poker with us later. Rumor has it they are wicked cardsharks and party pretty heartily.

Begin supervising the food deliveries:

That outta do it for now...

You kitties are peaches to help out!

Wait for us before ya start drinkin' you drink pawtinis???
