Blogoversary Party Time!

This is the day - first Blogoversary of the Cat Realm. And we are all here to help celebrate in a unique Lizard BBQ.

Going back a little bit in time, I had a long way to come from the land down under but the Italian boys, Opus and Roscoe came to pick me up in their Flying Van. Roscoe and I had such fun time playing games while Opus took the wheel as we flew across the Atlantic Pond.

On the way we also picked up Sassy and the cake from her barn in the Heartland of America and Asta from New York City, arriving bright and early at Karl's....

We actually arrived a day earlier to practice our routines and do some busking to earn our keep as you saw from my last post. It was an exhausting day so before the others arrived we took the opportunity to rest up a bit

Then everyone came. This is the group photo of all 36 of us - Karl's family, Ruis's whole family from the Netherlands, Charlie, Charlotte and me from Sydney, Momo and Pinot from Toronto, Opus and Roscoe from Italy, Jan's Funny Farm contingent, Sassy, Asta, Riley, Socks and his sisters Scylla and Charybdis.

While the lizards were being grilled, we relaxed in the pool, drinking and savouring salmon sushi, sashimi and snacks. Charlotte and Riley volunteered to guard the blogoversary cake that Sassy brought all the way from the mid west....

I am so glad to see you and all my friends, Momo! We had a difficult time, and the staff still has... But as a cat I know my sister the best and she would say "Celebrate!"

We all beamed over to Arizona.

Ruis, we were very sorry to hear about Miral.

MoMo, we are having the bestest time. Who knew BBQ lizard was so yummy. I wonder why they don't make lizard flavored catfood. ~Socks, Scylla & Charybdis
