Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Barney!!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Barney's Second Birthday Party! We are so glad to see you all! We hope you have a great time - let us show you around!!

So of course everyone from the HoC is here - Barney is here with his special guest, girlfriend Gracie! She came in early and they spent part of the day in the city exploring the sites.

And then they headed back here for the party! Gracie was so sweet she make him a special birthday cake!

And of course we have our own birthday cake and treats here for everyone, kitty, doggie or human to enjoy!

Virgil is here with his special girl Danielle, and he, along with Kirzon, who though quite a bit older is escorting the beautiful ladycat Tia,  and Lola, who is unattached but checking out all the handsome mancats and mandogs, will be keeping a close eye on Gus, who is on his first date with his girlfriend Ozabella! Stella is here with all her mancat friends and Trixie, well being a baby still she is not quite ready to date.

So, without further ado, lets get this party started!!

We couldn't decide on a theme, so we decided it would be fun to go with something kind of neutral -

Lots of fun colored balloons, and of course pictures of Barney as a baby

Barney at the vet, before he move in with us

Barney on his first day home

We have of course got Gracies beautiful cake, which is almost too pretty to cut, and we also have a cake that we made - well, we got it at least!

And for all our human friends who decide to hang out, we have some tasty cupcakes!

Of course, we can't just have cake - we have to have real food too! So we have lots!
Cat Food

Doggie food too!

A fruit and cheese tray for the humans

And of course pizza too!

And yes - you CAN haz cheeseburger!

Or Sandwiches!

Of course we have shrimp

And yummy Ham - we know a lot of the kitties out there love it - but of course the doggies and humans can have some too!

And yay - more cheeses!

(And now for a few more Barney Pics!)

Now, lets head over to the beverage area - we of course have milk - perfect for all the young kitties here (and anyone else who would like some of course!)

Or water if you prefer (in bowls or in the fountain!)

Niptinis for the older kitties (and if you doggies want to try one you are certainly welcome if you are old enough!)

Or if you are more inclined - meowgaritas!

For the humans we have lots of fruity tropical drinks - regular or they can be made more "adult" (just be sure not to drink and drive - if you need to you can stay here!)

More Barny Pics!

Oh, and don't forget the treat station - Temptations for the kitties

And yummy bones for all you doggies!

And of course more Barney pics!

And once you are full, we have lots of toys you can use to work off those calories! Like Mousies

Da Bird!

Jingle balls

Stuffies for the doggies!

Oh, more kitty toys!

And more stuffies - these you can play tug-of-war with!

Of course we didn't forget the nip!

And sparkle balls

Felt nip toys are fun too!

And if anyone wants to play outside they can do that too (Barney will only be able to watch - he is an indoor kitty after all!)

After the party, Barney and Gracie will be heading out for a romantic night at the 95th in the Hancock - but if anyone wants to hang around the rest of the cats will of course be here

Thank you everyone for coming! We are so excited to spend the party with all of our wonderful friends!!

And now a few more Barney pictures - have a great day everyone!!

Happy birthday, Barney!! What a bash!!!!

Karen Jo said...

Happy Birthday, Barney! There is so much to eat and drink and play with that Emma and I don't know where to start. For sure I want some cheese and shrimp. Emma doesn't like much people-type food, so she will probably stick to the cat food. Emma will want to play and play with Da Bird and I love jingle balls.

Kirzon, it's so kind of you to escort me. I promise I'll try not to drink too many niptinis... I think. You'll get me home all right if i, ah, ndulge a little too much won't you? In return, I'll help you keep lazers on Gus to make sure he's behaving! Now, I'm sure I saw some nip somewhere... Care to join me, handsome mancat?

Oh, by the way, I've left my human at home. Can't really let your hair down when you're having to supervise them. She says happy birthday too though!
