i can't even believe that our little fur baby is one! (15 in cat years apparently). to celebrate, i decided to throw him a birthday party! yes, this is real. and it was all cat themed too, of course.
we played cat jeopardy and it was just hysterical. i came up with different "cat"egories like "famous animated felines", "famous big cats", "cats but not cats", etc. we did boys vs. girls and the boys totally dominated. it was kinda sad... but i think everyone still had a great time playing.
for snacks, we had a selection of different fishes (alfie's fave). cheddar goldfish, pretzel goldfish and nordic fish (not to be confused with swedish fish. these are from winco people).
i didn't want people to feel like they actually needed to spend money on a cat to come to the party so i put on the invitation no gifts please but people still brought some anyways. so sweet and thoughtful of them. alfie loves his friends!
i went all out on decorations...
we had sooo much cake. omgosh. if you know me, i am a terrible judge on food quantity so i always make a TON. i ended up bringing the extra cake and cupcakes to work so people could enjoy/celebrate his birthday too.
even the plates were cats!
singing happy birthday to the birthday boy! he was already eyeing his birthday cake... hahah
after everyone left, he was totally wiped out. i don't blame him. he had a lot of friends come and help celebrate him turning one and we are so grateful that they spent their night with us. we are so blessed!
i was exhausted too. planning a party is a ton of work. a lot more than i thought it would. i don't even want to think about what it will be like to throw a party for my own human child..... hahah yikes!
we love our little fur baby and are so glad that he is a part of our family. thanks again to everyone who helped make his day special!
