There’s been so much “happy” around here, I’m totally exhausted. Happy Birthday, Happy New Year, and a super Happy experience at Cat Scouts on New Year’s Eve. What happened you may ask? Well, I was made co-Cat Scout of the Year along with another Scout and friend, Nibbler. We were so surprised – we knew a CSOTY would be named but I don’t think EITHER of us dreamed it would be us. Thinking about Scouts and how many wonderful Scouts work so hard there, it never occurred to me that I was being considered…….so when I was asked to come to the Campfire and receive my Trophy – well – I was in shock. Here’s the trophy and also a photo of me in my Sabertooth uniform which is my new “icon” on Cat Scouts website.
I had birthday parties EVERYWHERE……..my friend Nellie combined her New Year’s Eve party with my birthday – then of course there was a New Year’s Eve party at Cat Scouts…..and people were wishing me an early birthday there then yesterday morning I had birthday surprises in different spots at Scouts……….I’m “plum worn out” but so grateful and so happy that I haven’t had much time to really think about the fact I’m FIFTEEN now!
I thought I’d share the birthday cards I got – the ones that came via email……..I did get some “real” cards in the mail too, from my friends Andy and Charles and I am SO grateful for them…..I also got a really beautiful card from my pal Speedy which was a Jacquie Lawson card if you’re familiar with those – beautiful sentiment…….but I can’t show you that! In fact I can’t show several of the things that came to me for my birthday so thank you again to EVERYONE………..I’m overwhelmed by your friendship……….truly!
I’m working on those new badges for the Teaser. A new year should mean new badges wouldn’t you say? Who knows where in the world we’ll be next Tuesday but I’m already looking forward to it – are you??????
I’ll be letting you know also how many comments I got (not including my own comments) on my blog yesterday – – – as you know, it was a “Commentathon” to benefit Marg’s Animals, in particular dear little Joe the donkey. Mom is giving fifty cents for each comment made but that’s not ALL…………..a wonderful thing happened yesterday – we had an email from a dear, sweet and generous friend who is going to MATCH what we raised so it will be double what we WOULD have been able to donate thanks to my wonderful friend. The world is full of people who truly, TRULY do care about animals. That makes me so very happy! Speaking of Happy – my friend Raz from Friends Furever put this together and it makes me so Happy I simply have to share the Happy with you!
BE HAPPY! (click here)
I hope everybody has a great SECOND day of the new year…………………I know I will – I’m still thinking about the past several days and how lucky I am to have all of you as my friends!!!!
If you’d like to donate to Marg’s Animals and Joe’s vet care but not through my Commentathon, just CLICK HERE!
UPDATE: We had 91 comments on yesterday’s post – that means Mom will donate $50 to Marg AND because of our generous and sweet friend who was going to MATCH us, that means $100 to Marg’s Animals! THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!!!! ♥♥
