Happy Gotcha Day, Brainball! It's PAW-TAY Time!



From Mom and Dad: Brainball, you've been one of our most precious life gifts. You were the first kitty we had together, and because of you, we discovered the joy of being kitty parents. And there was no looking back. You, our true and steadfast Alpha Cat, began a Kitty Dynasty: the Ballicai, and you shall forever bear the title Ballicus the First (Ballicus I). Thank you, precious Brainball, for the joy you bring to our family every day, thank you for your sweet, loving, tough, steadfast nature, thank you for being the kitty who watches over the rest of us with vigilance, protection, and abiding love. We adore you, our first kitty daughter, our trusted friend, our cherished companion of many years, our Good Ol' Brainball, our precious ambulatory fuzzball with eyes. May we all share many, many, many more happy years together.

From Dorydoo: Hey there, Brainball, I wish you the best Gotcha Day ever! With my Gotcha Day wish comes worlds of thanks and appreciation for all you have done for me and all you have taught me. You helped Momma raise me. You became my Momcat, the Momcat I didn't ever have to leave. You and I made fast friends, and I found a warm, secure place in your big and loving heart and against your welcoming, floofy tummy. I am a big girl now, all grown up at almost-three years old, but I will always be your little Dorydoo, you'll always be my Momcat I never have to leave, and I will always love you more than I can say.

From Marilyn: Brainball, I know that sometimes you and I have our differences, but I love you very much, and my respect for you is immense. You are like the Great Warrior Queen Boudicea come back to earth as a cat, and you are an excellent influence on me, little Marilyn MonREOW with her oh-so-dreamy nature *smile*. You have taught me a great deal about both toughness and diplomacy, about standing one's ground with all four paws planted firmly on the earth and working things out. I learn something new from you every day, and I am so happy that you let me kiss your sweet ear yesterday. Sister dear, I wish you a wonderful, happy Gotcha Day.

From Chairman MaoMao: Wowie, Brainball, you're been with Momma and Daddy fur six years? That'sa whole lotta years! I think I must be the luckiest kittyboy in the world to wind up inna housie where you're the Alpha Cat. You teach me a lot efurry day about patrollin', lookin' after the other sisturs, lookin' after the beans, and all sorts of impawtant Alpha Cat stuff, and I know that you're groomin' me to be Ballicus II someday, and I can only hope that I'll make you proud when I'm followin' in your paw-steps. You're a tuff act to foller, and though I hope to be as good an Alpha Cat as you someday, I could nefur, efur be bettur. You're not only my sistur but you're my bestest friend and my mentor and a superduper cuddlebuddy, too. I love you, Brainball, and thankies for bein' the bestest big sistur a kittyboy could efur have. (And you take the bestest baths and you have the bestest pink tummy, hehe!)



From Brainball: Awwww. *sniff*. Thank you, everybody. I couldn't have had a happier home these past six years, and I hope I am here for sixty more years (MaoMao, it might be a while before you ascend to Ballicus II *wink*). I love all of you, and before I get too dad-blasted mushy (*sniff, sniff, sniff*), I'll get this party rockin'! HOOAH!!!!

PARTY ON THE BLOG!!!!


We've got 'nip, we've got tuna, we've got tuna juice, and we've got 'niptinis and tunatinis and lobster, shrimp, and stinky goodness by the bucketful, too! Everybody come party whenever you like, as often as you like! I love all of you, my Cat Blogosphere friends, and guess what... if you've never before seen a Butt Kickin' Girl Alpha Cat get seriously NIPPED, then you're in for a treat! *chortle*!

Ummmm... Marilyn? Aren't we posting this a little bit early? It ain't time fur the party yet.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

That's exactly why we're posting, dear. We need to get everything ready and set

up before our friends arrive.

Chairman Mao said...

Oh, yeah! That makes a lotta sense. Okey dokey, we got all kindsa stuff effurywheres basically for everykitty to have whatever yummies they want.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Where's Brainball?

Chairman Mao said...

Dorydoo's helpin' her get into that gorgeous gown you got her. heh, I can't wait to see Brainball in a party gown. I don't think she's efur wanted to wear nothin' but combat boots!

And speakin' of gowns, you look really great in that purr-etty red gown Mick got you! I hope nobody minds that I'm wearin' my burffday suit.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

*purrrrrrr*, thank you, dear. And I'm sure no one will mind that you aren't dressed up. Your Snowshoe Siamese colors are well-suited to any occasion.

Oh, wow -- here come Brainball and Dorydoo, and they look smashing!

Chairman Mao said...

Brainball: Thanks for the gown, Marilyn! It itches a bit, but then I'm not used to dresses.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Not to worry, sweet sister. You look lovely.

Chairman Mao said...

MaoMao:: Man oh man, Brainball, you look WAY KOOL!!!!!

Brainball: I love that the gown is olive drab with woodland camouflage accents! And I think these combat boots are a nice touch, don't you?

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Combat boots with an evening gown -- quite a creative combination! And Dorydoo, sweetie, you look precious in your bright yellow taffeta. It really sets off your gold eyes!

Chairman Mao said...

Dorydoo: Thanks, sis! Hey, is everything ready?

MaoMao: Yeah, sure, ready as can be! Now I wanna niptini, I wanna NIPTINI!!!!!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Now, MaoMao. At least wait until our guests start arriving.

Chairman Mao said...

I wanna snuggle with Ariel!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

I'm sure she wants to snuggle with you, too! And I can't wait to see my darling Mickeybear.

Chairman Mao said...

Brainball: Oh, you romantic types. What are we going to do with them, Dorydoo?

Dorydoo: Who knows? But I bet there will be some very foxy mancats at this party.... Hmmm! *big grin*

Brainball: Hmm, mancats. I'd only be interested if he accepted that I wear the BDUs in the family!

Dorydoo: BDUs? What's that?

Brainball: Why, Battle Dress Uniform, of course!

MaoMao: Okey dokeys, stuffs all set up for our early arrivals! Since this is a komment pawtay onna bloggie, efurrybodies come and go as you please, whenefur you please.

Sometimes we Ballicai will be talky and sometimes we'll be quiet, like when Momma's sleepin' or workin' or runnin' errands.

But Brainball's Gotcha Day Pawtay is all 24 hours of August 1, so enjoy, enjoy! Eat, drink, nip out, and be merry!

Welcome to effurybodies, and we Ballicai love you all!

Chairman Mao said...

Brainball: Hi, Tara! Thank you so much for your Gotcha Day wishes and kind words -- I appreciate them so much. And please feel free to stay! We expect some other beans to show up tonight or tomorrow. I know beans don't much like tunatinis or stinky goodness, but we have plenty of shrimp and lobster. Cuddles to you!

Brainball, I brought you something I love, cheese, actually is called Brie. I know it's kinda stincky, but we LOVE this stuff at my house. I'll just set it over here with your other goodies. Hopefully, someother cats will like it too.

I read how much your family loves and respects you. You're some lucky Alpha Cat. I'm the Alpha Cat too, buy my older sis, Kali who was Alpha before I got here, she doensn't always respect me. But enough about me, I just wanted you to know how lucky you are to have such a loving family!

Enjoy your day!
Tyler

Ariel said...

Hi My Sweet Mao,

This is a very wonderful party.Brainball looks great in her gown.Things have changed at my house though.Grandma and Grandpa had to go home this morning.Mom's still not well and yet she's still babysitting the niece thingy.So to keep her happy mommy lets her play games on the computer.Yet she stays on way to long and hogs it she can be a real brat sometimes.Anyway at least I got away for awhile while she naps yet I don't know how long I can stay cause she's going to want to get back on when she wakes up.I did make something for this wonderful celebration last night and posted on my blog today so please go see when you have a chance...Love And Kisses Ariel

Ariel said...

Hi everybody. Great party! Maybe I'll have a niptini? I'm still very nervous today. Now the roofers are working on my roof and it's even louder.

Thanks everyone for your wonderful Gotcha Day wishes and all the yummies, and guess what, there's still plenty of tuna and nip and stinky goodness and all kinds of things to chow down on! I hope everyone is having a great time -- I sure am, thanks, Mickey, for asking -- you are such a nice mancat and my sis is a lucky girl! This party has been one of the most fun experiences I've ever had! *HICCUP* (more 'nip, more 'nip)! *Brainball rolls around on the floor waving her paws* I love all you kitties and thank you for being such good -- and fun! -- friends!

Marilyn: Thank you, darling Mickey, I would love a tuna plate! And you look divinely handsome, dearest.

MaoMao: I'll be happy to teleport you home, sweetie Ariel! I'm so happy you had a great time!

Dorydoo: You kitties on the Blogosphere ROCK! *hiccup* *hiccup* *SQUEEEEEEEEK*

Chairman Mao said...

Brainball: Awww, Donny and Marie and Casey, that's so sweet! Thank you so much.

All of you kitties on the Blogosphere are just the greatest, and I'm so happy to have you as my friends! Thank you for making my special day even more special, one I will remember forever and ever.

(HEE, catnip makes Big Butt Kickin' Alpha Cats mushy! But I mean it from the bottom of my fuzzy heart.)

Well, the party's been a lot of fun. This is my first time going to a blog party. Thanks for having me Brainball, Mao, Marilyn. I've enjoyed visiting with everybody and I've enjoyed all the snacks too. I think I only had one of those niptinis. Wow! goes right to a girls head. Yoggie would have had fun here today, too. I must have dozed off or somthing. Anyway, everything was great so I'll go home now. I think it's late enough at my apartment for the roofers to go home now. It should be nice and quiet and I can get some real sleep. Oh, Brainball, don't forget to stop by my place, I put up a little congratualtions thingy for you this morning and forgot to tell you.
Hugs and purrs, Brainball...G

And thank you so much, Gretchen! I'm so glad you had fun, and how neat that this was your first blog party! You are a beautiful kitty, and I'm so glad you are my friend. I'll go check out your blog!

Brainball: Hi, Jake and Bathsheba! It's great to see you, and thank you so much for coming and for your kind words! No, you're not too late at all -- anykitty who wants to, please hang out here as long as you want! We've still got lots of yummies and we Ballicai are still going strong.

Here's a tunatini, my friends -- and mmmm, have some of this delicious shrimp!

Big purrs and floofy-cuddles to everykitty! You have made my Gotcha Day so very special.

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

yWHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHTTTTTTTTTT the heck happened! I missed the greatest Gotcha party in history because I had to take a bath!!!?!???!?!
This nonsense has got to stop mom!!
(Mom here: Miss Peach is overreacting. We are indeed sorry we missed the party for the devine Miss Brainball of ALPHA CAT fame. We offer our belated conCATulations to the big ginger girl)
That's not going to make it better mom that I missed the party:(
Is there any cake left?
Your very sad (but clean)furrrrend Miss Peach

Anita said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Brainball!! Funny party.

Chairman Mao said...

Brainball: Awwww, Miss Peach, you aren't too late! There are plenty of goodies left! Enjoy, enjoy, and stay as long as you like! You and me and Dorydoo and MaoMao and Marilyn can play Tent Wars, and we'll enjoy tuna puffs and niptinis together!

Hi, Anita! Thank you so much! It's been a great time -- please, have a tuna plate and a nice big niptini! And join in the Tent Wars!
