Today Charlie turns 13! 
Welcome to his birthday cat mitzvah party!

Turning 13 is a big event!  Now he is a teenager and more grown up!

Oh a present for me Mama?
Let me at it....
Oh Mama you know I love feathers to chase!  
The table is set for our party
these are for the adults
This is Charlies special 'tuna' cake on his fish plate with his fancy water
Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum
Happy Birthday Charlie! 

I hope you enjoyed Charlies birthday as much as I did...Mr ALC says I'm a bit crazy but it was fun and the only time I've let Charlie eat at the table...
Charlie says thank you for all your good wishes and he would like to give one of you a gift!

This cute 2012 calendar, a book 'All About My Cat' to record information about your best kitty friends.  
This cat pin that you may add a photo of your favorite felines
A bag of Charlies favorite treats!

Just leave a comment and let me know you would like to be entered.  I will choose a winner on Monday 9/12.

Charlie sends a special shout out to all his cat pals in blogland!  He did get a special birthday wish from his girlfriend
Kitty kisses to Gizzy! 

Wishing you all a wonderful Saturday!

Awww.."Happy Birthday sweet Charlie" Isn't your momma nice to have you dine at the table on your BIG day. Now that you are a teenager, Charlie you can ask momma to get you your own cell-phone, ipod and ear-phones. I know you'd love that. Big Birthday kitty wishes from all of us here at Just Cats. "Rock on teen cat." Hugs, Deb and Ed, Cali, Lily & Sierra. (& cousin Hugo, too) Big "WOOF" from Kanie.
Oh yes, throw my name into the give-away hat, please.

Sending out a 'tweet' to our favorite kitty cat (birdymama made us say that!). We were, ahem, amused to see that you like to play with "feathers", as long as those feathers aren't attached to either of us, we guess it is OK. Welcome to your teens, Charlie!

Happy Birthday, Charlie!

Your party looked like the photo of you crawling in the bag!

Tell your Mom that you demand to eat at the table all the time now......................

Please don't enter me for the drawing---sadly, I don't have a kitty right now.


But I wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday {again} on the correct day!

What a cute post Linda, and what a lucky cat Charlie is. Charlie is a real beauty, and I love the photo of him getting inside his gift bag to get his feather. Is that a cookie jar on the table? How cute. Don't put my name in the drawing. I don't think my dogs would like those cat treats! Happy Birthday Charlie! laurie

Vonlipi said...

That was the sweetest! I bet Charlie was pleased as punch!

Best B-Day wishes from my kitties to Charlie!

Billy Bob, Peanut, Boubou and Yoda all send their best.

If it's opened to bloggy friends of Canada, please count me in! ;)

Hehe, how whimsical, I love it, especially the fish plates! (I'm trying to type this with my cat on my lap beating her tail on the keyboard!) Happy Birthday Charlie and many happy returns. You are a gorgeous kitty and you are lucky to have such a great mom!

Oh I miss having a cat. We always had one or two around the house and loved watching them play in empty paper bags!

I am not entering to giveway because I don't have cats, but I just wanted to say Happy Birthday Charlie, you are a loviedovie and those are some nice gifts! Gizzy is adorable too!~Ames

DogsMom said...

Oh Dear Charlie! I am so sorry I missed the party. I thought about you all day Saturday as I was running to and fro.
It looks like you had a great time and lots of well wishing visitors. Did you sleep away Sunday?

bj said...

Happy Birthday, Charlie..13 is, indeed, a huge number.:)
No kitties reside at Sweet Nothings so please give my chance to someone with cats.

Happy Birthday Charlie, you sweet sweet boy! You do not look your age. You look like a baby kitty! I'm not lucky enough to have a precious cat like you around the house, so tell your Mama not to enter me in your giveaway!

Scarlett said...

Loved this post, happy b-day charlie :o) Scarlett x

Betsy said...

Charlie has to be the luckiest kitty on earth! A big teenager deserves to eat his favorite taste treat on the dining table:-) I really miss my 17 year old Ernie.

Vintage Christine said...

BooBooKitty isn't speaking to me due to the fact that I missed the deadline for the prize. This is mainly because those treats are his ABSOLUTE FAVORITES! I tried to explain to him that he already has two big economy size bags in the pantry but he sniffed and said, "Well, how am I going to eat them if they're in YOU, huh?" Anyway, these are our problems and even though he's mad as heck at me, he still wanted me to tell Charlie "hey!" and that he hopes he looks so good when he's that old!

the cape on the corner said...

oh my gosh, you are hysterical! not only is he a teenager, but once he has his cat mitzvah, he is considered officially a man! congrats charlie.

you can tell he loves that cake! this made my day!
